      Nis is not only the third largest city in Serbia, but also a place of great historical importance. Several layers of history can be found beneath the streets of Nis, some dating 5000 years back. In Nis and its vicinities there are tens of historical monuments and artifacts that tell the story of a flourishing city with key role both during the Roman times, the Ottoman rule and nowadays.

      Wiki says
      The origin of the name “Accursed Mountains” is disputed. According to one local legend, the devil escaped from hell and created the jagged glacial karsts in a single day of mischief. Others say a woman cursed the mountains while she and her children trekked through them on a scorching-hot day and couldn’t find any water. A third legend claims Slavic soldiers gave the mountains their name as they struggled to march through them.[2]

      Both the Albanian (Bjeshkët e Nëmuna) and Serbo-Croatian (Prokletije) names mean “cursed (mountains)

        Thanks for looking that up, czarina! All the Balkan countries have fascinating histories and tales. Their time as part of the Roman Empire is particularly interesting and many have ruins which aren’t closed off but can be toured right down in the midst of the fallen columns, etc. What fun it would be to visit.

    The saying goes…The proof is in the pudding. Well, the pudding is done, and you can judge the results. These lib Guv’s can talk all they want, but their people vote with their feet.

    Trump Takes a Hammer to the Carefully Maintained Delusions Inside the Left-Wing Bubble
    By William Sullivan – May 13, 2023

    Despite an audience that was friendly to the candidate, CNN’s recent town hall hosting Donald Trump was anything but an effort to inform independent and Republican voters about the candidate’s position on the substantial issues faced by struggling Americans. It was a hedonistic exercise to satiate its left-wing producers’ and viewers’ desire to emphasize all the criticisms that CNN talking heads have been levying against him since 2020.
