    Yeah, you've spouted off that false interpretation a couple of times now. I'm not implying anything. Just clarifying what Tweety is saying. Other then your usual attempt to get attention, not sure why you interjected.

    Considering that it's 100% the truth, I'll encourage it all day
  4. What do you think about with current News and Opinions?

    Every involved party is saying that the proposal was not brought to the White House. Are you trying to imply something here?

    Senior military experts wanted training for Ukraine in guerilla warfare tactics. They evidently saw a need for this as Russia was building up it's forces at the border. The Biden administration went against the advice of the experts in this are...
  6. In the article above: Ukraine is not a 3rd world country that needs American training all of a sudden. They need weapons at this point. Like I said above they've proven themselves capable.
  7. Here's the story this story was describing https://www.politico.com/news/2022/03/13/briefing-white-house-nixed-december-plan-to-boost-special-ops-presence-in-ukraine-00016830

    Don't encourage me...politics and capitalist agendas have ruined our health system.

    I wish that I could give this statement a gazillion likes
  10. What do you think about with current News and Opinions?

    Yes. The article even says that the idea for more special ops personnel was never presented to the white house for consideration. The idea was presented to congressional aides and legislative staff before the military scrapped the thinking aft...
  11. There is no way of knowing if this would have provoked Putin to attack earlier than he planned. I guess at the time they were hoping for diplomacy. Also there is no of knowing if this would have actually helped the Ukraine Military who seems ...

    "Senior U.S. military officials pushed for additional special operations personnel to be sent to Ukraine in the lead up to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, but the request was denied amid White House fears it could provoke Russia, according to a report....

    This is why it’s so hard to find mental health counseling right now https://www.washingtonpost.com/health/2022/03/06/therapist-covid-burnout/ It seems that the pandemic has pulled the blinders off and revealed how poorly invested our "healt...
  14. This sounds exactly like northern Michigan county commissioners except better weather. I always thought that part of north cal. was always filled with renegade right-wingers and a bit scary so this is no surprise. We have a few districts with no De...
  15. You mean like Trump attempting to bluff a nation? He learned from the best. I heard a news story about people from Ukraine calling their relatives in Russia to tell them of the invasion and their Russian family members didn't believe it because Put...

    This seems like something that we should pay attention to as right wing extremism sets the world a tilt. How far-right militia groups found a foothold in deep-blue California https://www.washingtonpost.com/nation/2022/03/07/california-far-...
  17. What do you think about with current News and Opinions?

    How ‘Z’ became a symbol for supporting Russia’s invasion of Ukraine https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/2022/03/09/letter-z-russia-symbol-pro-war/ World war Z is supposed to be a story about zombies. I was reminded by my granddaughter the...

  19. I think with the case of Trump saying over and over the election was fraudulent I think that he also has to have an audience that is willing to believe it. He set up his base, even saying that if Clinton won it would be fraudulent, but when he...
  20. Tweety

    President Biden thread

    I would think that if the market was forward looking they might have taken advantage what opportunities they had for getting oil from North America. There is the thought that constructing Keystone could help alleviate problems in the future, the...
  21. What do you think about with current News and Opinions?

    You didn't say what you thought about the article you shared. Do you think that the belief that there was fraud in the 2020 election (or some variation of the fantasy that the election was stolen from Trump) is an example of illusionary truth?

    As I pointed out, that oil industry perspective and guess about petroleum production prognostications for North America are contradictory to other, expert analysis. I'm pretty sure that I provided a solid citation fir that. The markets are mor...
  24. President Biden thread

    I said something similar recently: "Third, killing the Keystone XL pipeline was the sort of sonic-boom signal the oil market hears and reacts to. That was a Day 1 priority for Biden. Once he canceled it, the global market for oil guessed that le...
  25. What do you think about with current News and Opinions?

    Trump is the de facto leader of Republicans and politically conservative voters. Trump is a liar who tried to overthrow the election results and who continues to inflame his devotees with lies a about the election and our current president. T...
  26. President Biden thread

    That will be the issue that crushes democrats only if the press doesn't cover the deep and un-American lies about our elections and the Republican attempt to dismiss the attempt to overthrow the 2020 election results while they make it easier to subv...
