What the press in the US doesn’t tell you is that the current government in Ukraine is the most corrupt in Europe — by far. (Some of this corruption involves Americans, like Biden’s son.) And this corruption has left the country extremely poor. Given its natural resources, Ukraine should be thriving, but the opposite is true — the consequence of all the government corruption. When Putin talks about the “bandits” in Ukraine, this is what he’s talking about.

I am a voracious reader and also enjoy writing. I often have a very different point of view than the popular one. I do see value in debate, and thought it might add to the public debate on controversial issues if I were to express my contrarian opinions. I also started keeping my poems recently (I've written little pieces my whole adult life but never kept any); and I've been a photographer now for over 25 years. So I will be adding an occasional poem and hopefully interesting photograph to the blog along the way, just to spice things up. View all posts by Henry Barnard
