So Ukraine attacked Russian nuclear bombers in Russia. This is one of the specific items that under Russian nuclear doctrine where Russia says that they will use nukes first, a conventional attack on their nuclear triad. Fortunately it was a pretty lame attack.

Ukraine first tried to invoke Article 5 by faking a Russian attack on Poland, now they attacked Russia's nuclear bombers. Up to now they have been shelling a nuke plant, risking a meltdown.

The Ukrainians are crazy and we should not be in bed with them. How large are Biden's holdings in Ukraine, at risk if Ukraine loses? Who knows? Somebody should ask him.

Another story from the local news: Woman receives $1000.00 from church-organized charity handing out a large a day all month.

Overjoyed she was. Single mother, jobless, five kids (by how many men is left unstated).

Maybe someone should explain to her the facts of life.

Recovery from the dreaded covid almost complete. Was pretty active today compared to the previous few. Have to travel into work tomorrow to be covid tested by employee health so they decide how long I'm going to be out from work. My much younger friend is at the same stage of recovery with the same lingering symptoms right now- lots of phlegm production and coughing it up. Ugly stuff.... Since his symptoms appeared 30 hours before mine, and our recovery is at the same stage, looks like thal last justification- "You won't get it as severely if you get the shot" is also a lie. So continued from yesterday, lie #5 about the clot shot, thought I don't think they've yet progressed to "But we never said that!" for this one. I'm sure it's coming.

And in other news it appears that as brain dead Biden and the adultsin charge send SECSTATE Blinken to Brazil the Brazilian army is leaving their barracks to support the other side. Seems the Brazilians protest violently when their elections appear to be dishonest. This kind of stands out from what I was reading: Brazilian Indios are also protesting the fraud, since there were allegedly zero votes from the indigenous territories for Bolsonaro. So the indigenous people of Brazil are saying the election was stolen? Where are liberals in the USA who always support the downtrodden? Why aren't they speking out? Oh, never mind, it ws leftists who cheated.

A comment I mad elswhere on CAnada and it's new open push for increased state sanctioned euthanasia and the words supporters of it are using: So now that they're unaffordable financial burdens they're back to being crippled instead of differently abled. Got it. Newspeak is always at work in liberalland. Wasn't it just last month it was virtually illegal to call anyone crippled?

These Russian "nuclear" bombers are being used launch conventional missiles targeting Ukranian civilian power, heating and water utilities. The Ukrainians are absolutely entitled to target those bombers, just as the North Vietnamese were entitled to target US "nuclear" B-52s when they bombed Hanoi.

It was also "Russian nuclear doctrine" to use nukes if Crimea was attacked or annexed "Russian" Territories (such as Kherson) were at risk of being taken. Both have happened without the use of Nukes. While I don't completely disregard the Russian Nuclear threats, they have been proven to be toothless when Ukrainians attack legitimate targets.

The Ukrainians are trying to end a genocide of their people and are actually acting quite restrained considering the atrocities. If you think that is crazy, maybe that say more about you than the Ukrainians.

@Gospace, good to hear, friend.

Omg. Twitter is now a cesspool of misinformation: “California is considering giving every black person 223k as reparations for slavery despite slavery having never taken place in California”

All is fair in love and war . . .

Miguel de Cervantes made the comparison in 1604 in Don Quixote when he wrote, "Love and war are all one . . . It is lawful to use sleights and stratagems to . . . attain the wished end."

It's not just me. People who have watched and listened to this video can't get enough of it. Whiskey Before Breakfast. I came across it eight or nine years ago and reckon I've replayed it going on a thousand times if not more. Feels so good.

tim in vermont said...

It's perfectly fair for Ukraine to do it, but Russia went on nuclear alert when it happened. Is it in the interest of the United States? No.

"If there were anyone left in America who still didn't grasp that these people mean to destroy Donald Trump; his supporters; and anybody who dares to whisper, "Make America Great Again," they've gone out of their way to target Americans who question the legitimacy of the 2020 election farce with threats of criminal charges, job firings, professional sanctions, social "cancelation," forced psychiatric care (straight out of Stalin's Soviet playbook), and censorship."

And the GOPe is helping. They hate us. And yet, they are expecting OUR votes?? Laughable.

wendybar said...

"Voting is no longer determinative. Our votes don’t matter, which goes a long way to explaining why people, despite their anger and frustration, are passive. Law-abiding citizens feel there’s nothing they can do short of taking to the streets."

BUMBLE BEE, that is very disturbing but not unsurprising info in the article you linked to. I just don't understand how so many legal Americans can be ok with what amounts to the invasion of this country.

THIS!!
"No one hates the GOP’s base more than good ole’ boy GOP politicians. DeSantis should want nothing to do with these cretinous failures.

Instead, DeSantis needs to chart a different course. He should woo the Trump base by first showing loyalty to Trump and secondly (and more importantly) by adopting the winning bipartisan consensus issues that got Trump elected in 2016.

DeSantis must understand that the D.C. elite class is his enemy. He should treat them accordingly. He doesn’t need big donors and D.C. praise. An alliance with America’s degenerate elite might get him a cushy CNN gig, but it won’t get him what he really needs to become president: popular support. DeSantis must side with the people over the elites."

Gospace. Good to hear you're feeling better.

I'm not dumb enough to vote for the democrat party.
I'm smart enough to know the republican party sucks.
That leaves me with no home and no choice.
