Crimea votes. Should she be forced to play for the Team after she requested a trade ?

There is nothing , nothing more democratic than a referendum. A referendum is actually democracy by definition. By the people for the people!!!

If Biafrans want to secede from nigeria … Via a referendum… (…We know the end of that story)

Similarly If Crimeans want to ‘secede’ from Ukraine via a referendum… Let’s just say I am pretty sure we don’t need a Gallup Poll to predict the outcome of these votes…

Or hypothetically … Mmmh check this out, in the name of perspectives…. If Puerto Rico wanted to cut ties from USA… Via a referendum… Could the autonomy of Crimea vis-a-vis Ukraine be (loosely) comparable to that of PR… Towards the USA.. For the sake of perspectives, we shall make that leap. Now imagine how puerto RIcans would feel if they were told: you voted but you ain’t going nowhere. Or how would Mainland Americans feel about Puerto Ricans.

By virtue of such a referendum to even be mentioned, let alone take place, all ties between Kiev and south Eastern peninsula have been bruised, all relationships blistered, and the future shall never be the same. If the legitimacy of the Crimean referendum is rejected by the West … Crimea, forced to remain as part of Ukraine would be awkwardly unproductive. It’s like playing for a team after you’ve DEMANDED to be traded… It’s a soul-less body.

Oh yeah… But It’s not that straightforward, Darlington. It’s a lot more complicated than that.

Or is it ?

Here are my general thoughts… It is extremely patronizing and elitist of any external body to publically reject the vote of the people of another autonomous body.

Granted, Putin is flexing his neo-coldwar muscles. But it’s unfair to force Crimeans to live in the Ukraine that they rejected…

John Kerry should come home. The US has more than enough on its plate. And as for The EU, it’s a LOSE-LOSE situation… sad to say …Putin was tactical in Syria … His tactics in the Crimean Crisis aren’t short of a step ahead of the west’s Either. I guess It’s in his backyard after all.

So I finally finished Breaking Bad….

Ten things I ‘liked’ from breaking bad: (in no specific order, just as I thought them)

10) Methamphetamine has 2 chiral isomers. Left and right. 🙂 – whenever they mentioned purity, it’s the percentage of maximizing one over the other….lol I promise last reference to chemistry. But I can’t help it.

9) the biggest horror stories I hear these days are people selling their shares too early in a startup company. It happened in Facebook, happened in Apple… It certainly did in Grey matter

8) The ends never justify the means… Or vice versa… …..But… NO BUTS!

7) Someone ought to consider if the fumes you inhale from synthesizing methamphetamine are more efficient than chemotherapy (at curing lung cancer). #imjustsaying. THIS is cancer research…. Although I am inclined to JUST accept that it made Walt “more alive” from a purely psychological point of view.

6) SKYLER! That’s a wife!!!
You can take your opinion and put it in a LosPollos mixing sauce if you don’t agree.

5) The composure of Gus Fring has to qualify as a virtue.

4) One Irony I’d like to point out for the scientific literate: [Of those looking for him…No one could say with absolute certainty Where was Heisenberg? #ALLPUNINTENDED Now what a great Alias!!!] all along it was right next to the hankering nucleus. #ALLPUNINTENDED!!!

3) “YOLO” and “better Call Saul” are sisters. The former was born right after the diagnosis. The latter, Welp, she followed her sister everywhere!

2) There is brave and there is Hector (Salamanca) The guy knew so much he couldn’t talk [another Irony]… As much as it may be wrong … I am thinking Stephen Hawkings of the breaking Bad World. Wonder if that was what the writer was going for …

1) I can see why some say it attempts to legitimize drug making… Others alluded to how The show mitigates the criminality of less potent drugs like… Marijuana. Everyone has a story. Vilifying Walter White doesn’t canonize you. Glorifying him doesn’t redeem you either. I think what the writer was going for was the journey… The unlikely KAFKAesque metamorphosis of your proverbial, innocent, high school teacher. Walter H White!
