No mention of the timing. If it were later than average there would be be harping about climate change. It must be earlier than average.

When Kim met with Trump, at least there was a possibility of making some real progress towards peace.

All that's dust in the wind now with the current peeps.

Posted in: Europe investigates 'attacks' on Russian gas pipelines to Europe See in context

So guess who previously threatened to take the Nord Stream Pipelines offline before they were sabotaged on Monday?

But it’s not out of the realm of the possible that the U.S. is indeed behind the attack. President Joe Biden promised on February 7 to prevent Nord Stream 2 from becoming operational if Russia invaded Ukraine. "If Russia invades,” said Biden, “then there will be no longer a Nord Stream 2. We will bring an end to it."

Reporter: "But how will you do that, exactly, since...the project is in Germany's control?"

Biden: "I promise you, we will be able to do that."

Posted in: McDonald’s Japan to raise prices on 60% of menu items See in context

Love or hate (as certain posters seem to be full of hate) the food at McDonald's, the fact is that they've somehow managed to remain in profitable business even without said haters.

Raising the prices is unavoidable due to the high rate of inflation. Many(dare I say most) businesses have already or will soon also be raising their prices. The result of unwise political choices and unwise governmental economic policies.

Thank the woke politicians who imposed the sanctions on Russia. As predicted, it's the citizens of Europe who are and will be paying the price of the sanctions.

Posted in: Elton John sings at White House See in context

John, being a leftist, loves and is likewise loved by fellow leftists. And to be quite clear the very large majority of "entertainers" are likewise of the same leftist persuasion. And this is why they, by and large, associate with politicians of the left. No surprise.

Posted in: Italians vote in election that could take far-right to power See in context

European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen is being accused of election interference after threatening to use “tools” if the wrong election result is achieved in Italy’s national elections, set to take place this Sunday, Sept. 25.

“By the way, it’s all his fault that we’re spending $6 billion in taxpayer money this month to help fight HIV/AIDS,” Biden said, in what I’m sure was meant as a compliment but came out sounding like censure.

It looked like John himself might have had to take a moment to process what the president meant.

"Most, if not all, of them were elderly and already sick. They almost certainly died of something else as the prime cause of death."


A good friend of mine recently passed away after having battled cancer for ~ 3 years and steadily declining. Her husband is quite upset that her death was included as "COVID - related" though she never had it, nor was tested positive. Can't trust falsified data.

which is why having an emergency generator, as a homeowner, is a practical solution. (Yes, I have one and have had to use it on occasion).

"I thought it would be best to get the one for the strain currently around. It doesn't mean I'm not going to get infected, but I've come here to get vaccinated so I don't spread it to others,"

Well, getting the vax doesn't prevent the spread.
