Re: Putin Invades Ukraine II

Not going to do Covid 2 on this thread. Appreciate Krieg’s writing. The S men are factually incorrect, lying and/or totally deluded. All we’re doing here now is providing a platform for Russian or hard right American propaganda. I’m out. #NAFOfella I'm an American, not Russian, and not even close t...

Re: Putin Invades Ukraine II

I don’t want Tortoise or Kriegs to think all people who support Ukraine and more specifically the idea of us arming Ukraine as vacuous “Russia bad / Ukraine good” and “I support the current thing” non-thinkers. I mean, if you do believe that, so be it, but it’s not the case. I know the Ukraine gove...

Re: How did YOU vote???!!

It’s about racking up temporary victories and recovering from temporary defeats. Democracy doesn’t deliver permanent solutions or eternal social justice. It’s...

Who here would support their children or nieces and nephews bring sent to fight Russia? Do you draw the line there? We are at war with Russia, but currently by proxy.

On the bigger picture of this internationally… Should we have cared when Italy invaded Ethiopia? Should we have cared when Germany invaded the Balkins? Should we have cared when Japan invaded China? Should we have cared when Iraq invaded Kuwait? Throw in Korea, Vietnam? I’m sure there are more. IDK,...

Too much typing for no real purpose. As we agree, let's see what the investigation brings up/finds Yes. Congress is political theater, but let’s put our faith in an investigation conducted by… Congress. :o Yeah, on the flip side that’s why the investigation on Trump has been in my ignore box. I do ...

Please, tell me more about how corrupt and disgusting the political world of Ukraine is.

John Mauldin on Crypto

Everything below is from John Mauldins Newsletter…I was surprised how much it lined up with what I’ve thought about crypto. The first part is the bigger picture…the second is FTX details. I would simply add, I see not much difference between a crypto exchange and an overseas gold vault as noted. I g...

If we are going to move the ball forward in time, let's start talking corruption again...and you may want to read up on his life and times while in power. A little accidental Dioxin poisoning of your opponent in a close election never hurts either.

Re: US House to investigate the Bidens et al

I don't think they will find anything new on the FBI as that dog has been run. I am looking forward to the social media companies side of the investigation. However, I think at the end of the day, given current law, they can simply say our job is take make money and those were our decisions. May no...

Great tangent on the infowar...wow, a complete blowout but a little spin from me. In infowar a key principle is that you have to be considered credible. Russia has so discredited themselves that I don't think they recover in the west for at least a generation. It's interesting to watch Tucker and I'...

Posting an image 4 days after the invasion and reports from 2014...pales in comparison to the unmitigated atrocity of the Russians over the past 9 months. I'm certain there are war crimes going both ways, but every report shows the mass preponderance perpetrated by the Russians. I see why the Ukran...
