He was a small boy working on a farm (someone else’s) near what is today the Belarus border and was then a Czarist Russian dominated Polish population. The people were getting a bit uppity, especially the farmers, an independent lot.
So in come the cossacks to destroy everything, just not the way you think.
No one was hurt. They came to the farm, quartered their soldiers, and their horses, and ate the family out of every single little morsel of food for them, and feed grain for their farm animals until it was all gone, and then moved on.
The little thing?
When they found out my grandfather just toiled there, and lived in the barn, the Cossacks, who would under any other circumstance charge back and forth thru his shtetl until it was acceptably raped, murdered and in all ways rendered uninhabitable, made sure he ATE WITH THEM and was full.
It was that act, he said which told him they were going to destroy the farmers, perhaps KILL them if this did not work. Indeed, when he told the farmer, they made plans to get the family away. Here, in fact.
So now, what little thing informs us?
We look to Barack Obama. His recent signing (actually not, just an imperial memorandum) of the no deport for illegal immigrants, in effect making up laws set up the big argument as an indicator to his self arrogation of power, and his desire and RIGHT to do so, because he says so. It is his ROLE. He know it.
Other say, ‘BAH, every prez does this’
So what is the little thing?
Soldiers forced to relocate wedding for Obama’s golfing
