Under Russian control now, Crimea is already doing some old Soviet-style “for the common good” people relocating:

Ukraine’s breakaway region of Crimea will ask Tatars to vacate part of the land where they now live in exchange for new territory elsewhere in the region, a top Crimean government official said Tuesday.

Crimean Deputy Prime Minister Rustam Temirgaliyev said in an interview with RIA Novosti on Tuesday the new government in Crimea, where residents voted Sunday to become part of Russia, wants to regularize the land unofficially taken over by Crimean Tatar squatters following the collapse of the Soviet Union.

“We have asked the Crimean Tatars to vacate part of their land, which is required for social needs,” Temirgaliyev said. “But we are ready to allocate and legalize many other plots of land to ensure a normal life for the Crimean Tatars,” he said.

And by “elsewhere in the region” I’m assuming they mean they’ll be offered prime real estate near Chernobyl after Putin takes over the rest of Ukraine.

Joe Biden was asked what he thinks about the Crimean Tatars, and he said he prefers Russets.

    Gotta' give it up for the Ruskies. They just step up and expropriate. None of this death by a thousand cuts/tie you up in court/EPA enforcement/injunction BS. One day you're part of a thriving democracy and vibrant economy and the next you're a 'squatter'

    ( or uh… Tea Party member? )

    Really interesting developments ( did I mention this is OT? ) on the States insatiable desire to tax these new e-cigs. I've seen the commercials but not anyone actually smoking one. Or not 'smoking' one as the case may be, maybe that's the point?

    The internal workings of the massive Big Tobacco Settlement read pretty much like any trust fund heir/brat leveraging their future inheritance. ( States issued mega 'bonds' in order to spend the cash up front )

    Now they're dependent on those Big Fat Stacks of Cash and are going after electronic cig's in an effort to "keep them out of the hands of children". Sounds pretty weak and I've never seen evidence a DIME of the old settlement went toward "lung cancer treatment". Additionally, from what I understand, they have nicotine, but not tobacco. Even anti-T campaigners concede there's no connection to lung cancer. Desperate, insatiable, pathetic…

    It is very similar to the push to start taxing the mileage we drive now that gas tax revenues are down due to the higher gas mileage vehicles.

    As for the e-cigs, from what I have seen they are popular with the 20 something crowd.

    Presently they're subject to those Big Fat Stacks of Cash and are following electronic cig's in an exertion to "keep them out of the hands of youngsters". Sounds really feeble and I've never seen confirmation a DIME of the old settlement went to "lung malignancy medicine". Moreover, from what I comprehend, they have nicotine, not tobacco.

    Importantly, few people know that actually all Tatars are one nation. Only in the anti Tatar and anti Horde ideology they were divided into “different nations": "Crimean", "Volga", "Siberian" and many "other" Tatars – so that to crush them separately.
    All about this is explained in the book "Forgotten Heritage of Tatars" (by Galy Yenikeyev). It is about hidden real history of Tatars and their fraternal Turkic peoples. This e-book you can easily find on Smashwords company website: https://www.smashwords.com/profile/view/MIG17

    There are a lot of previously little-known historical facts, as well as 16 maps and illustrations in this book.
