Couple 60:years old celebrating 40th anniversary. The genie appears to grant each of them one wish. The wife says she wants to travel the world first class for the rest of her life. Immediately, in her hands are a stack of airline tickets, cruise confirmation etc. The husband says "I want a wife 30 years younger than I." Immediately, he became 90 years old. ————————- Seriously people, how can any American regardless of political affiliation root for Putin? Disagree if you will about how to add in when and to what extent sanctions are imposed, but rooting for the enemy! C’mon folks; that is disgusting. Glad Hitler is no longer alive. He would have fan clubs in the United States. Shame on everyone of you who still supports Donald Trump.
I wrote the paragraph above early Wednesday morning. I am writing this paragraph watching the 7 pm talk shows, hearing that Trump called Putin a genius and says Putin is beating Biden like a￼drum. Someone should, pardon my French, beat the shit out of Trump. Apparently the right wing Republicans are on Putin’s side. How crazy is that? ————————— I became so disgusted with what is going on that last night I refused to watch any news on television. Consequently, I have nothing more to say with respect to current events. It is apparently settled that Ukraine has no nuclear weapons and Russia does. NATO countries have pledged to help Ukraine. At least one country in NATO has nuclear weapons. Does the promised help include arming Ukraine? Asking for a friend ——————————- Biden is supposed to name his Supreme Court nominee in the next three days. I understand there are three candidates, and although Biden has not conferred with me, I have an opinion.
Why? She is not from the Ivy League and I think there needs to be some intellectual diversity as well. Next, if Lindsey Graham does not support her in an affirmative manner, I do not think he will actively oppose someone from South Carolina and has said as much. Of course, one cannot take to the bank anything he says. Childs will create the least controversy which, with all Biden has on his plate, would be a very good thing.
My last main reason is also the most politically practical. Jim Clyburn is very much in favor of Childs and pushing very hard. Biden owes Clyburn big time. In fact, he owes him his Presidency, which ordinarily would be a big marker. With Republicans favoring Putin and telling Biden to go f—k himself, the marker is not as big. —————————- The Republicans accused Biden of looking feeble as he walked away from the podium after speaking to the nation on TV this week. Maybe they expected him to do somersaults. In any event, can you imagine what they would say about FDR’s wheelchair? What schmucks! —————————- We are still working on my website. Lots of things need to be corrected or changed. Nonetheless, the person who has helped me the most, Barbara’s cousin Carol, is more than pleased with the number of responses. She labeled it “a flood”.
There is an old joke about a man whose business burned down, and he collected a lot of money from the insurance company. His friends asked him why he had a fire and he responded “Because I didn’t know how to cause a flood”. ————————- Please hope things get better. This is serious stuff.
