The EU should act “within days” if new sanctions the US plans to impose on Russia prove to be damaging to Europe’s trade ties with Moscow, an internal memo seen by the media says. Retaliatory measures may include limiting US jurisdiction over EU companies.How did this happen? 1. Obama placed sanctions on Russia because we're infinitely evil and omnicidally suicidally loony. 2. Russia responded to the sanctions SANELY by increasing its own internal skills and independence. Graybill's Law. 3. Europe quickly realized that the sanctions were hurting Europe more than Russia. But Europe didn't protest because it's physically impossible to insult Our Lord And Saviour Obama. 4. When the infallible image of Our Lord And Saviour Obama was replaced by the HITLER image of TROLL FUCKTARD HITLER KKK NAZI HITLER TRUMPTARD HITLER COMMIE NAZI TROLL RUSSIANAGGRESSION KKK HITLER RUSSIANHACKING NAZI RUSSIANMEDDLING SATAN HITLER KKK, the actual Trump not only continued the sanctions but expanded them. 5. Europe Is now free to bash RUSSIANCOLLUSION TRUMP for making war against Russia. Underneath all the wildly counterlogical hyperlunacy, plain old Natural Law is taking hold. Europe has money and needs oil and gas. Russia has oil and gas and needs money. Nature hates monopolies. Nature loves honest commerce. Net result: The politicians and media who built the image of HITLERTRUMP to expand their power are finding that the actual HillaryTrump is destroying their power and breaking up their empire by continuing Obama's policies, which is what they told us HITLERTRUMP would do by disobeying Obama's policies. Thanks, Ralph!

Polistra was named after the original townsite of Manhattan (the one in Kansas). When I was growing up in Manhattan, I spent a lot of time exploring by foot, bike, and car. I discovered the ruins of an old mill along Wildcat Creek, and decided (inaccurately) that it was the remains of the original site of Polistra. Accurate or not, I've always liked the name, with its echoes of Poland (an under-appreciated friend of freedom) and stars. ==== The title icon is explained here. ==== Switchover: This 2007 entry marks a sharp change in worldview from neocon to pure populist. ===== The long illustrated story of Polistra's Dream is a time-travel fable, attempting to answer the dangerous revision of New Deal history propagated by Amity Shlaes. The Dream has 8 episodes, linked in a chain from the first. This entry explains the Shlaes connection.
