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.
At last… that dream has come true.

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.

He might have united the rest of the country against him. … The over-the-top language of the speech made him seem more emotional, less competent. … They have no idea how they sound to the non-left, so they have no idea when they are damaging themselves.
“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
with me, socialist!
