Bill Maher: “It’s just gone on too long, nobody cares anymore. I don’t want to live in your mask paranoid world anymore. You go out it’s silly now: you have to have a mask, you have a booster, they scan your head. Like you’re a cashier and I’m a bunch of bananas. I’m not bananas, you are.”
Martin Luther King had a dream that one day we would see greater diversity among anthropomorphised chocolate treats.

The attempt to draw Ukraine out of Russia’s orbit, the partway-open door to Ukrainians who preferred westward-focused alliances, was a foolish over-commitment even when American power was at its height. … in geopolitics good intentions are always downstream from the realities of power. Whatever its desires or ours, the government in Ukraine has simply never been in a position to fully join the West — it’s too economically weak, too internally divided and simply in the wrong place. — Ross Douthat, NY Times.

“But this week in Georgia Mr. Biden damaged himself. And strengthened, and may even have taken a step in unifying, the non-Democrats who are among their countrymen, and who are in fact the majority of them.” — Peggy Noonan.
“I think millions of Americans have become very demoralized — they’re asking, what do the Democrats stand for? Clearly, the current strategy is failing and we need a major course correction.” — Sen. Bernie Sanders.
“It seems like the Democrats can’t get out of their own way.” — U.S. Rep Tim Ryan, D-Ohio.
Others say that as President, Mr. Biden has fallen out of step with many voters by focusing on issues like climate change and voting rights. — New York Times.
Don’t get brazen
