Should we push back on the notion that the baby formula shortage is a government problem?

Maybe it would be futile, but we don't live in a command economy. This shortage is due to privately-owned companies, and shouldn't there be more pointing the blame at the companies, instead of just accepting the responsibility of doing something about it (which we should still do).

You Tube and Yahoo are trying to shove RW propaganda down my throat....

I never click on anything from Fox or the Washington Examiner, or watch any videos from Ben Shapiro, but that doesn't stop Yahoo from populating half of my newsfeed with RW garbage, and YouTube populating its recommended videos with crap from Fox and Ben Shapiro (although in the case of YouTube it's a bit more balanced with videos from MSNBC and the Damage Report).

I thought these algorithms were supposed to look at what we watch and click on and decide what we might like?

Russia now threatening Finland and Sweden if they join NATO

https://twitter.com/mfa_russia/status/1497234734765780997?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1497234734765780997%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.bbc.co.uk%2Fnews%2Flive%2Fworld-europe-60517447

Finland or Sweden joining Nato would spark Russian response - Moscow warns
Russian spokesperson Maria Zakharova


A spokesperson for the Russian foreign ministry has warned that the accession of either Finland or Sweden to the defence alliance Nato would spark a serious response from Moscow.

Speaking during a news briefing in Moscow, Maria Zakharova threatened if either Nordic country sought to join the security alliance it "would have serious military and political consequences that would require our country to take reciprocal steps", Russian news agencies reported.

"We regard the Finnish government’s commitment to a military non-alignment policy as an important factor in ensuring security and stability in northern Europe," Zakharova said.

While Finland co-ooperates with the security alliance in some matters, and is attending today's meeting of the body in Brussels, it has not formally joined the bloc.

Last month, Prime Minister Sanna Marin said it was "very unlikely" that Finland would apply for Nato membership during her term in office.

A lack of willingness to fight and risk our lives will doom us all to dictatorships

Most don't want to fight a war with Russia to save Ukraine, but who will Putin go after next? Georgia? Another former Soviet Republic? Finland. They are not in NATO either, so apparently we can all sit back and let the Putin win again. And Biden and the Democrats will be labeled by the MSM and Republicans as appeasers for letting it happen.

Meanwhile, it seems we can't even agree to cut Russia off from SWIFT because of economic impact on us and especially Europe. Has it occurred to the Europeans how much money it's going to cost to maintain large armies in order to protect them from a stronger and emboldened Russia? Furthermore, the right-wing fascists in our country and the west are being emboldened because they see that we are not willing to fight to save Democracy.

Since the MAGATS believe in herd immunity so much....

I suggest they should have "Covid parties". The sooner before November, the better.
