We allow just about anything to be posted here including things we don't agree with. And some of what has been posted here in the past in the comments section has been nonsense to my way of thinking. But we post it.
We have been careful to allow everyone to have their say even if they want to remain anonymous to say it. So I will be deleting any comments that refer to anyone by name who wishes to remain anonymous nor w2ill I allow the same to be published when the3y come up for moderation.
By the way, people in our area are not buying what here is called sausage but what is more like bologna. That is what the shop owner down the street is saying. That is almost a staple in the diet here. And they are not ordering things like cakes and the like. So Roshen is not going to be sending much of anything this way.
And one home improvement supply store--not a chain--that was busy before September of last year with cars and trucks going in and out at all times of the day, now sits with the parking lot empty quite a bit. (They were very happy we stopped in and ordered a load of drywall and other things.)
Anecdotal yes, but real nonetheless.
And the leaders bicker.
We tuned into Radio Era the other day and head s session of the Rada. They were taking about some kind of bill to establish some sorts of relations with Morocco and Albania. When one deputy said that this was frivolous in light of what was happening out in the country, he was told, "Your two minutes are up."
I am surprised though at how patient the people still are. Maybe they've seen it all before? Maybe they figure it makes no difference?
