I've been hearing about it on the radio. Fox news on the AM dial but it has been mostly in the morning during that Wall Street Journal show. But yeah for the most part it seems that no one is picking it up. I guess BO needs to go there and give that fire a tongue lashing. Then it will just go away because no ne messes with BO-Man!!

Last report I saw, there were 600 wild fires burning in Russia. And very few are reporting anything about it. The fires around Chernobyl are spewing radioactivity into the atmosphere as it burns through the downed timber destroyed by the radiation.

About 700+ people have been dying in Moscow per week, due to these fires, people have jumped into the River Moskva and drowned. On top of the 350 who normally get taken out by vodka...actually probably a sizeable percentage of those jumping probably were drunk...


Putin got into a water-bombing Be-200 and tried to look purposeful...suppressing dissent? oh that was just an unintended byproduct
