Why are we in Ukraine?

“Now here we are, being driven toward war with Vladimir Putin’s Russia by a relentless military-industrial propaganda campaign organized by a corrupt gerontocracy in command of our armed forces in support of a dubious cause, for absolutely no good reason of state.”

But lots of individual reasons, from the multiple Republican and Democrat consultants to Ukraine politics over the last many years, to the current money-laundering services provided for our corrupt politicians.

Victims of Communism Day

Will be Nov. 7 in Florida. “In Florida, we will tell the truth about communism,” says the redoubtable Republican governor, Ron DeSantis,, establishing the day to remember.

The coming famine

“Ukraine and Russia are two of the top grain-exporting countries in the world. Ukraine has been selling grain to the West since ancient times. With those supplies disrupted, a global food shortage impends, and many are predicting that populations in some vulnerable areas that can’t produce enough food for themselves will starve….

“Our farmers produce more food than anyone. But here, too, environmentalist fantasies are reducing food production. Countless acres of productive farm land are being taken over for wind and solar installations.”

National submarine day

Celebrated by the US Navy. Silence, they say, is golden. Hope our Boomers are ready. Russia has them, too.

Biden endangers us all

The White House minions keep walking back his incendiary remarks, but the one about Putin needing to be the subject of regime change, went through loud and clear nevertheless. The Kremlin brushed it aside, but it’s doubtful that Putin did. Maybe he won’t throw a nuke at us. Maybe he will. Note that they didn’t walk back the fine people hoax. They like that one.

A Nation of Draft Dodgers

Interesting piece on our draft-less circumstances at a potential time of big war. We’ve outsourced our multiple, smaller wars of late by paying “volunteers” about $40,000 each to enlist. It may have been increased since the government’s bugout from Afghanistan. The mercenary aspect is just one of the interesting items in this year-old essay in the Military Times.
