Fact of the Day: Kazakh Soviets

Kazakhstan while not as a big or well-known as Russia, was part of the Soviet Union. The native Kazakhs suffered greatly in their early days in the Soviet Union. When famines hit the nation, its estimated that 40% of its native people either died of starvation or fled the country.

      Oh dear.......the US Ambassador to the United Nations like

      The comedy from Alabama is Oscar winning............horse riding to polling stations and having six-guns strapped on.
      John Wayne must be spinning in his grave.

      The antics of the Royals way back in Europe pale into insignificance when compared to the 2017's of the USA!
