Maybe they should complain a bit louder how close they are to being invaded by Russia?
Ukraine has received $2.5 billion in 'security' assistance since 2014 with the last $150 million tranche of 2021 being announced this week ($275 million total this year).

Be rude to Putin, maybe overthrow Trudeau in a coup, and Uncle Sam will pay. :D

What's this? No post from kyotebue2 commenting on the bi-partisan deal that's recently been made?

I am shocked :shock:

Still, can't imagine that would've happened a year ago. Trump's idea of bi-partisanship is deals made between the KKK and the Proud Boys.

I'm in the middle of moving. It is I think the beginning of McConnell's downfall in the Senate but don't quote me on that...

She’s just as awful of a human being, though.
And her Pretty Woman dream isn’t panning out like she hoped, I think. He’s deep in debt, his businesses are suffering, he’s under criminal investigation. Not sure how much will be left to inherit. His children will probably end up suing each other for what’s left.

Trump and Bozo (here in Brazil) are in it to win or lose big at this point. Trump will probably try to be elected to the House.

Armed robbers held up news crew as it interviewed Oakland's chief of violence prevention

Two armed robbers held up a television news crew that was interviewing Oakland's director of violence prevention outside City Hall on Monday afternoon, just hours after the police chief warned of worsening crime amid cuts to the police budget.

Oakland police reported that the two suspects approached the newscasters at 3:09 p.m. and tried to steal a camera. After a scuffle, a security officer pulled out a gun and ordered the suspects to leave. They fled without the camera. No injuries were reported.

A statement from the Police Department described the incident but did not identify Guillermo Cespedes, head of the city’s Department of Violence Prevention, as a victim.

Cespedes told The Chronicle he was at the scene of an attempted robbery on Monday, and a police watch commander confirmed he was being interviewed when the crime occurred.


Less than three hours before the attempted robbery, Oakland Police Chief LeRonne Armstrong held a news conference in which he criticized the City Council for passing a budget that reduced police spending by $18 million — diverting much of those funds to the city’s department of violence prevention in an effort to support alternatives to policing.

Armstong said a surge in violent crime makes it more crucial to increase police funding and warned that police response to 911 calls could be delayed as a result of the cuts.

Oakland created its Department of Violence Prevention in 2017, with an ambitious goal: decrease homicides by 80 % over three years. The city tapped Cespedes to run the department in 2020, months before gun violence began rising at a staggering rate — a sudden unraveling after five years of progress.

As of Monday the city had counted 65 homicides for the year, nearly double the amount for this time last year.

Would this be fair as an analogy? As an outsider to USA Politics.

45 hit a nerve in the USA voters, mobilised the base of the Republican vote and managed to get them to vote. In (LARGE) numbers for 45. 45 promised to drain the swamp. He did.

At the same time he, (45, pronouns people) built a bigger, better swamp (as 45 is a property developer then that would be fine), then invited all the Swamp Monsters 45 had evicted from the swamp 45 had drained to his much better, bigger more luxury swamp and got more Swamp Monsters to 45s new swamp?

The ones who had managed to get out of the old swamp but not got into the new swamp evolved, found legs and dragged themselves onto dry land?

I love it when you try to be clever, Arnald. And try to run with the big boys.
It's so cute.

Six months since the TMPish stalwarts of septic freedumb showed the world how far stoopid has come to dominate what passes for thinking...

The saddest part is that it is still being described as an innocent gathering of patriotic 'tourists'.
