Every damn relative, friend and associate of Putin and his supporters now in western countries

must be rounded up and deported or otherwise sent out of the western countries where they reside, are visiting or otherwise engaged. Not tomorrow but today. All their properties and toys should be seized. If their children are attending school, they must be expelled now and sent home.

And we should be mindful that there are those among us who would work hard to shield these Putiners for money but they also most be punished in some way. These people are not innocent and are here to enjoy the largess of western countries while preaching destruction of the west.

No more birth of Russian anchor babies in western countries. The entire process of soliciting Russian wives is also a creeping cancer on our democracies. STOP IT ALL NOW!

Rant over

February 27, 2022

Has anything from S. Korea, Israel, India, or Iran been heard re Russian invasion of Ukraine?

I haven't found reporting on what the leaders of these countries have said about Ukraine.

February 26, 2022

Just as Putin helped Trump and the GOP take over our government in 2016, Putin's Ukraine aggression

might help us get rid of all them in this year's election and 2024.

I overheard a conversation at the checkout about "just can't vote for commie lovers." Talking about "commies" right now let's you know who they are.

February 26, 2022

Anyone have a link to that photo of all those GOPers in Russia?

Now would be a good time to remind voters who they have to vote against to protect us from more Russian infiltration into our government.

February 25, 2022

My heart is gladdened by the videos of all the protests against Putin and the invasion.

On the other hand, I am saddened by the thoughts of what might happen to these brave souls.

Hoping and praying for their safety and eventual success against the Putin regime.

Does Ukraine not have weapons to strike inside Russia?

Are all their weapons defensive? If so what is Putin talking about? What had he to fear from Ukraine?

February 24, 2022

Should have used 'stand your ground' and bombed the Russians as they were marching in.

When your military is going to be over powered by your enemy's military, you have to use whatever leverage and means you can. You really have nothing to lose that you are not going to lose.

February 24, 2022

Is any western state, including US talking about stopping immigration of Russians and banning

Russians from entering their country? Have we talked about inviting Russians in the US to go back where they came from?
Have any states and localities taken a hard look at the Russian enclaves that have sprung up within their borders in the past 30 years?

February 24, 2022

Trump made it ok to hate "the others" worldwide and in the open. Thus,

this turn from tolerance and humanity and compassion has weakened resolve within and among western nations. Sadly, to me at least, this means that western nations within themselves do not continue to have the unified resolve to make the sacrifices and carry out the actions against Russia that they had 30 years ago. Hence you see, even in America, a creeping tolerance for evil, corruption . racism, bigotry, misogyny, and homophobia--the social evils we thought we were making global strides against.

Indeed, this makes Trump the most consequential President in history since Abe Lincoln. Think about it. At least 25% of the voting public and 90% of GOP support Russian aggression.

Whatever happened to our angst against "communism and communists?" I am old enough to remember when everything Russian was communist (at least in the minds of the unthinking).
