seeing the news of LePen's loss

Brings this to my mind.
Putin lost trump,Putin lost LePen what does he do when he loses Ukraine?
Suggested answers; He pulls a Hitler and blows his brains out, he goes bonkers and launches nukes or he finds a location in some foreign country to retire/hide in shame for his remaining years. Those are the three options on my bingo card. Do you have others?

Republican presidents of my lifetime.

Eisenhower. (I like Ike) my memory of him is a great general and his creation of the interstate highway system. He also warned us of the dangers involved with the Military Industrial complex. The Koch brothers called him a communist. To me he was the last DECENT republican president.

Nixon (I am not a crook) introduced healthcare as a for profit enterprise. We all know how that has turned out. Resigned rather than facing impeachment with a good chance of the senate convicting him. (the beginning of the fall?)

Ford (stumbles a lot) a Michigan representative who fell into the job because a prior Nixon scandal forced the resignation of Spiro Agnew. Other than pardoning Nixon I have no memories of him doing anything of consequence.

Reagan (Saint Ronnie) Smooth talking actor who super charged the attack on middle class people. Began the attack and mistrust of the government. Fired the PATCO workers beginning attack on unions. Used the fear of communism to start covert operations in south America. This led to the installation of governments approved by us which created the problems we now have at our southern borders. This guy held the title of worse president for years but the worst is yet to come.

Bush HW (read my lips, no new taxes) continued with Reagans work in south America Ollie North took one for the team in this term. No accomplishments great or small that I recall.

Bush GW. (Dumb and Dumber) This one gave the powers of presidency to Cheney before he was even elected. ON 9/11 we were attacked by terrorists from Saudi Arabia he responded by first attacking Afghanistan (dumb) and then his real goal of attacking Iraq (dumber). During his reign bankruptcy laws were rewritten. The public was told not to worry they were just changing the laws regarding businesses. Only after the fact did we learn the changes gave rise to vulture capitalism. Allowing greedy capitalists to bankrupt struggling enterprises for profit. Removing legacy expenses (pensions etc.) in the process. The only redeeming value of this dude’s reign was his refusal to pardon Scooter Libby, pissing off Cheney in doing so.

The Orange Turd (I am the greatest)
Sorry friends but I refuse to put his name in print.
So, this dude did pardon Scooter Libby, just a minor screw up based on his other actions.
Increased the hatred and animosity among Americans. Tried to destroy NATO. Gave Russia American military bases without a whimper. Increased misogynist and xenophobic behavior in the population. Poo pooed the virus allowing one hundred thousand or more Americans to die for “his” cause. Stealthily gained control of the republican party using his charming tactics to create a cult following. Spent millions of U.S. tax dollars profiting his personal holdings. Attempted to steal the last elections by coercion or fake electors or calling for audits and claiming fraud. When none of these worked he tried an insurrection trying to stop the process of certifying the election. Hoping the MOB would rule.

An example of the subtle bias of main stream media

Lester Holt (NBC) stated "over 210,000 crossed the southern border illegally in March." The highest amount ever. Then had a segment about it. I did a search and found this on Rueters news. over 210,000 illegal aliens arrested crossing southern border. The way it was delivered would put anger/fear into the minds of many. Subtle yes biased yes. Think about it!

This is Bucky

https://imgur.com/a/rXWoVNH Bucky is a Pug/Boxer mix. I got this guy from the humane society about a year ago. He is now 6 years old. Methinks his previous owner was somewhat disabled or at least a senior citizen. In my current condition this guy keeps and eye on me all the time. Should I cough or make a moaning sound etc. He runs to me and puts his chin on my leg or the chair i am sitting in and looks intently into my eyes. I still haven't figured out how to post pictures directly to DU but at least i got the link to work.

Excel question. How to lock a cell in a formula
