Has anyone sponsored refugees in their homes?

I’d like to know how the process works and I’d like to know what organizations are trustworthy

Time to thank our European allies for their sacrifices

Putin never expected the “soft” West to sacrifice the oil and gas pipelines and the easy money gained through laundering Russian money through European banks.

Europeans have committed to serious sacrifices in order to defeat Putin.

First I give them credit for recognizing that they will pay a price. Second, I give them credit for being willing to pay that price. If you think we’re worried about losing elections in the US because of high gas prices, think how it must be for a German politician, knowing the German people will suffer.

Finally, I thank them for taking in (now) a million refugees, with more to come.

Are the Russian people willing to go to war?

The West has softened since WWII and since the Cold War, but so have Russians. Do their soldiers and civilians have the stomach to kill their close cousins (ethnically and culturally?). This is far different from fighting invaders on your own turf.

Afghanistan pull out was always going to be a disaster

It had to be done. Kudos to Biden for having the guts to do it. The “timing” was never going to be right. Better to do it early in his administration and be done with it.

China has built massive infrastructure by avoiding stupid wars. We need to to do the same and rebuild America.

I stand by Biden.

I don't know what shocks me more - that the Democratic Party successfully

messaged vote by mail to such a degree that our votes were protected and counted or that the Republican Party walked away from the vote-by-mail advantage they have held for decades.

I never dreamed we would have such a huge advantage in mail-in voting.

Kudos to DNC, Biden Campaign and Media

for educating us AHEAD OF THE ELECTION on the red mirage. Had that phenomenon not been explained ahead of the vote, I believe that there would have been utter chaos, confusion and early calls for Trump.

Sometimes we don’t get our message out and sometimes the media just does not educate.

As it is, Trump is flailing in his messaging about the election being stolen. For once, the media did its job.

Joe needs to grab the narrative the second this race is called

Get his spokespeople on every network to start talking transition team immediately. Like Jim f’g Baker in 2000. He is the President-Elect. We’ve babied this MFr for too long. The TV people are still talking Trump 24/7.

Appreciation thread for Joe Biden

77 years old; buried 2 children, watched his older son die of brain cancer; played supporting roll to our first African American President; got lambasted by Kamala Harris for old stances on bussing; unified the Democratic Party; made amends with Kamala Harris; ran a national campaign in the midst of a pandemic and won against the most vile human being ever to hold office in the USA; had his and his family’s personal lives torn to pieces without ever losing his cool or stepping back from his family.

His best friend told him “Joe, you don’t have to do this.” Yes, he did. And yes he has.
