Rant time;
Politically are America and Russia more alike than they would care to Admit?
I do concede that the average American has more freedom and rights than the average Russian and am thankful for that. Even our craprate media is better than Tass though not exactly a high bar to clear there. In a nutshell America is ruled by craprate fascists (Oligarchs) that has bought off most of the politicians in the US to keep control of the Govt. In Russia Putin is a dictator and has control of his Oligarchs for the most part. Both countries conduct covert operations CIA -KGB to maintain their sphere of influences on the planet with power and greed the motivating factor. Both MICs cleanup profit wise by suppling the weapons of war that both sides have engaged in one way or another since WW2. Another thing in common is parents grieve for thier dead loved ones all due to the lust for more power and greed. (fortunate son applies to both sides) Both sides have propped up god awful dictators over the years as well. I doubt the average Russian knows what Putin has done over the years, and in the US some Americans do know the dark side of our Govt, and a lot more others dont care or turn a blind eye to it. The world cant continue down this path too much longer as climate change will have the final say. Rant over!!!

Must admit that when I heard Biden say the U.S. was placing sanctions on ‘the oligarchs’ I thought, oh, now do ours!

It’ll be interesting to see what happens to Abramovitch, not on Biden’s sanctions list for some reason.

Gotta give credit to the Ukrainian people, their defending thier country the best they can though the lack of air power will be thier undoing in the near term. If the Ukrainians go into insurrection mode how long will Russia put up with the flow of body bags that will be headed thier way? Also give credit to the Ukrainian president to standing with his countrymen/Women. If Cult-45 was the President of Ukraine he’d cut and run to the nearest golf course in another country.

Supposedly Russia is not yet admitting they’ve suffered any casualties, but I saw at least one dead soldier on the side of the road. The news person said it was a Russian and wondered why the dead soldier had been left there during their (temporary) retreat.

They can say no deaths all they want, Ukrainians are defending themselves, this isnt the drop and run Afgan army when the US pulled out. Their will be dead on both sides, we only will get estimates on it.

Don’t we all wish. Sigh…. Y’know, John started on “Imagine” before he broke up the Beatles. As an educated fan of both the band and popular music, I have always wondered what that tune would have sounded like if it had been recorded by the Beatles and George Martin. Magnificent barely scratches the surface.

One of my favorites takes on this immortal tune. Cassidy died of cancer, way too young. 🙁
