It's time for the US to "let" Ukraine hit targets deep in Russia

Reading the last few days of renewed Russian attacks on Ukrainian cities, killing numerous children I have had it with the restrictions. I want the US to grow a pair and let Ukraine even out the score. When their cities are hit, Russian cities are hit, it's time to bring the war home to the Russian people and maybe then they will have enough of putins dictatorship.

Maddow pretty much said that he's just doing a campaign speech, will tell the same untruths and they can't go that low in reporting

Maybe all we need to fight the NRA and gun lobbies is a lobbying group

lobbying for affordable penis enlargement surgery which would negate the need for owning those "big" guns and "large'" capacity magazines. Maybe with government subsidies, get the medical and big pharma lobbyists involved, fight fire with fire 🔥 🔥

There is mass confusion outside the US according to a reporters live feed

the confusion as to why the US continues to have mass shootings at schools, why we can't stop them. Well, my answer is simple, we can stop it but refuse to do so because we have the best government money can buy thanks to the supreme court letting corporations and the rich elite bribe politicians.

US ranking on abuse of power index hurt by inequality and violence Country came near median of 163

countries on Index of Impunity, higher than Hungary and Singapore. The US scores surprisingly badly in a new ranking system charting abuses of power by nation states, launched by a group co-chaired by former UK foreign secretary David Miliband.

The US comes close to the median of 163 countries ranked in the Index of Impunity, reflecting a poor record on discrimination, inequality and access to democracy. The country’s arms exports and record of violence are an even bigger negative factor.

The US ranks worse on impunity than Hungary and Singapore, one a poster child for democratic backsliding and the other an illiberal democracy.: Per guardian live feed

Fury in Ukraine as Elon Musk's SpaceX limits Starlink use for drones

A senior Ukrainian presidential aide has reacted with anger after Elon Musk’s SpaceX said it had taken steps to prevent its Starlink satellite communications service from controlling drones, which are critical to Kyiv’s forces in fighting off the Russian invasion.

Gwynne Shotwell, SpaceX’s chief operating officer, said at a conference in the US that the surprise decision had been taken because it had never been the company’s intention to allow Starlink to be used “for offensive purposes”.

That prompted an immediate complaint on Thursday morning from Mykhailo Podolyak, a senior adviser to Ukraine’s president, Volodymr Zelenskiy, who argued that Musk’s business had failed to recognise Ukraine’s right to self-defence.

Oh no! Pink Floyd is a russian stooge

Well, the founder seems to be, per the Guardian live feed:

Speaking upon the invitation of the Russian ambassador to the council, Pink Floyd founder Roger Waters called for an immediate ceasefire in an address to the UN security council on Wednesday.

The US deputy ambassador to the UN, Richard Mills, responded by questioning Water’s credentials to address the council on the conflict and then deferred to the Ukrainian representative, Sergiy Kyslytsya, who accused the musician of unwittingly becoming a tool for Russian propaganda.

Kyslytsya said:

How sad for his former fans to see him accepting the role of just a brick in the wall – the wall of Russian disinformation and propaganda.
