2. They are as DESPERATE as they are

Despicable. They have nothing to offer the American people. NOTHING. They are going to seize on anything they can to throw at Joe to tear him down.

The disgusting spectacle of an entire political party and most of the media hammering on Joe for calling out a bully and a monster killing thousands and threatening the planet is almost unbelievable… and yet… here we are.

4. We first entered the Bizarro World Dimension in 2000...or is it the Twilight Zone?

And 2016 cemented our place in the trans-dimensional warp thingy.

9. I just watched a segment on CNN

where one reporter was addressing another and one stated that it was a mistake for President Biden to say what he said about Putin. I screamed at the TV!

I guess if President Biden decided to mercilessly bomb, fire missiles and shell the shit out of Mexico, they'd all of a sudden shower him with praise.

And we (meaning democratic countries of the world) don't help because Ukraine doesn't belong to the special NATO club. Yet, no reporter that I've seen will say whether or not Putin should be removed because he's murdering women and children destroying everything is sight for a whim.

5. The best investment Putin ever made was putting money into Trump.

6. Yes, Trump and his treasonous henchmen did better for Russia than

Putin could ever have hoped for.

Part of Putin's miscalculation on invading Ukraine, I think, had some to do with overconfidence in how badly Trump had crippled our government. He didn't count on Biden.

7. I'm not sure it was a miscalculation.

 

Just because Putin didn’t capture Ukraine in three days doesn’t mean he lost. Putin has upset the world economy, supply chain, probably added to inflation, etc. more things that Biden will be blamed for, if only because it happened on his watch. Any kind of sense of security out of balance is a win for Putin. And the Russians can whether any kind of storm, they’re used to living in poverty, without, unlike Americans.

11. Interesting perspective. My particular prognostication is that there will be an internal

coup in Russia and Putin will lose power. I believe this will happen at some point this year, probably sooner than later. Remember we are attempting to seize the property and assets of Russian oligarchs like that poor little helpless guy, Aven, in London, who just can't do without drivers and servants. The oligarchs are the ones who call the shots in Russia, and they will not allow this to stand.

This is why I think Biden's statement that 'For God's sake, this man cannot remain in power.' was made on purpose - to signal to Russia that we would work with them, and perhaps even lift sanctions if they get rid of Putin and pull out of Ukraine. So we will see what happens.

12. I hope your right. Maybe the oligarchs will be good for something.

10. I have wondered

if Putin bought into all the RW propaganda about how weak Biden is. He seems to really lean into the Right wing BS.
