Ahh...if only Russia produced something we could boycott.

What do they make that anyone wants to buy?

Whatever the outcome of this attack by Putin, when it is over over there, FOX news and all their

hosts should be banned and taken off the air for good. They are largely fascists, Nazi-loving racists with too much money and way too much power by being allowed to smear their shit over the airwaves.

Do we have any patriotic corporations in America? Will they sacrifice anything to help President as

he tries to preserve democracy here and among our allies and freedom-seeking friends???

We can't even get unity behind wearing a simple mask to fight a pandemic.

What is happening in Ukraine will not stay in Ukraine. Everything that was predicted about Putin's actions was true and is happening now. What now?

I am crying right now for the people of Ukraine and the world.

Another evil bully is getting away with murder. Why can good decent men get assassinated and these evil bullies seem to get away with every imaginable evil deed?

I am hoping that the fascist Republicans here supporting Putin have shown enough of their

true loyalties to change the minds of many voters who were deciding their votes based on false charges of CRT being taught and vote according to their patriotic senses and vote ALL GOP out of office.

Wonder if Russian alcoholism and amphetamine addictions will be a problem for their military?

Not being smirky. A serious question. I know three families that adopted from Russia. ALL four children had fetal alcohol syndrome. One was taken back. The two that were siblings had to have serious medical treatments on-going today after three years. The other one, now a young adult, married with two children, is doing good except for problems with seizures of some kind.

Years ago, I remember some talk of why Gorbachev was so fed up. Anyone else know anything about this?

Are high winds blowing all over the US?

Severe winds woke me up this morning in Maryland.

OMG! Just sunned!

Binging Netflix "Occupied" I am just stunned how this is so similar to Putin's current play on Ukraine. The country in this story is Norway but it could easily be Ukraine. A must see for history and conspiracy buffs.

Anyone interested in seeing the film "Belfast" ought to checkout Netflix "Rebellion" first.

I have been reading about Ireland in preparation for watching "Belfast." I like to check out the history and culture of films about other countries culture and history before viewing the relevant films.

I highly recommend "Rebellion." The acting is awesome. It was out in 2016 but I had never seen it or heard about it.
