Pay Up

“Totalitarianism is once again threatening to sweep around the globe and President Volodymyr Zelensky stands on the front lines in the fight for democracy. Zelensky’s visit to America will strengthen the critical partnership between the two countries in this existential fight. Ukraine must be given the resources and funding support necessary to stand strong in the face of the larger Russian force.

“For nearly 250 years, the cause of freedom has been a cornerstone of the United States’ identity. The reaction by powerful MAGA voices in the Republican Party to criticize the visit and work at flipping U.S. support towards Russia is reckless and morally bankrupt. The GOP is no longer a party that supports democracy and individual freedom; it is enamored with authoritarianism and strongmen like Vladimir Putin because they have become blinded by the lure of governing by personality and fame. Like Putin, the MAGA GOP wants to stifle dissent, strangle their opposition, and consolidate power in the hands of their chosen few.

“Today is a reminder that preserving democracy is a global effort that requires sacrifice and vigilance. Let all Americans be inspired by the sacrifices of the Ukrainian people and use President Zelensky’s visit as an opportunity for the United States to renew its commitment to our own democratic institutions.”

It's just a few more days until Christmas. I may have missed it, but it appears the RWers have given up on the fake "War on Christmas" trope. Maybe it's because of TFG and his NFTs and the Jan 06 committee and Hunter Biden's laptop have taken all the news cycles. There's also the realization that most of the "Christmas" traditions (like the trees, Santa, mistletoe, even the date) are pagan in origin. Hell - the name "Yule" is being used right there in the open - didn't anyone look into it to see what that meant?

The After-effects
Author: BobR    Date: 12/14/2022 14:01:22

The panic over COVID-19 has subsided, due to a large number of Americans being vaccinated and the current variants being transmissible rather than harsh for the patient. Most (vaccinated) people get cold-like symptoms, and then it goes away. The real problems tend to manifest later, in a condition referred to as "long COVID".

The United States may be suffering from "long-TFG". Even though the symptoms he brought during his occupancy of the White House were pretty severe, it's the after-effects that are causing some real damage.
