What is missing?

What am I missing in the picture?  I just try to write down what I remember. I know it is chaotic, please, do not blame me.

For the last week, everybody has been talking about Brexit and derivative topics. And this is a perfect occasion, to do other things in politics/finance without being notice.

So what we have:

1. Last year Chinse stock market plummeted. Since then it is rather unstable.

2. The prime minister of Israel – Benjamin Netanyahu lately quite often goes to Moscow. It has been noticed that he visits Putin more often than Washington. Continue reading

Get a different view

I am a little sick of so called the independent Americans thinkers and experts. Sick of articles that Putin does not want war and only the US government is pushing for the nuclear III world war. In my opinion, they are not able to obtain a different perspective.

They sit in their homes in the US. In the US that has never had any cross-country war on its territory. Basically, they came, they killed almost all autochthons and then fought among themselves. The US is a baby country. It is little more than 200 years old. That is nothing. Some of the Japan companies are 1000 years old.

These independent thinkers do not know and understand the history of Europe. The comments I read about Brexit… God…just no comments on that. Total lack of understanding Brits, of the United Kingdom, of Europe. Continue reading

A mainstream or an independent. I thought the freedom of speech applies to all media, but it turned out differently. I am so naive.

So, what does my selection of media says about Brexit?

Too hot

Next topic – weather in Kuwait. Kuwait is a city in a desert, next to the sea.

I repeat it again. Kuwait is in the desert, do not miss that, this it is a desert. It is not Miami Beach with palms growing at every corner. Yes, there are palm trees here, but you need to water them if you don’t do this, they simply die.

Quo vadis, Americae

Oh yes, the great US, after a months-long campaign and millions of dollars spent on convincing people the other candidate is worse, finally has two candidates for president. I mean legally there still some things need to be done, but we can be almost sure that Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump will fight for the presidency of the US in November. I wish them good luck, and also good luck to the people of the US.

Today is the first day (2016.06.06) of Ramadan. In non-Muslim people minds’ pop-up just one thing, for 30 days Muslim cannot eat or drink during the day. Of course, Ramadan means much more, but I will not go into religion as I am not competent. I will write a little about how it looks like because Ramadan changes the rhythm of the day.
