Scottie’s world today
Robots and automation in general eat up jobs. That should be a good thing. People do not exist just to work. Other countries know this. Living should be more than a daily grind to make wealth for the wealthy and trying to survive.
Republican fealty to Putin is disgusting.
FOX is complicit. They parrot Russian active measures reflexively.
Republican rhetoric is meaningless.

Perhaps if the president from 2017 to 2021 had not been busy doing everything he could to weaken Ukraine, weaken NATO, threaten to pull out of NATO, threaten to pull our troops out of Europe, invite Putin to gatherings other world leaders kicked him out of and so many more actions designed to strengthen Russia then Russia wouldn’t be a major threat to world peace now. It is all perspective isn’t it. At the time Romney said it Russia was not a major threat or a large problem. It grew into one with the help of tRump.
You’d think that a major global tragedy like Russia invading Ukraine could tear him away from taking pot shots at Democrats for a couple of seconds. He’s taking gratuitous shots at the President during what amounts to a proxy war. Politics used to stop at the water’s edge. Whatever you think of him, by exposing Putin’s lies and tactics well before he invaded Ukraine, Biden led the free world in a more United front than Putin thought possible. Biden and his team have done a good job of wrangling a fractious alliance and putting together some very tough economic sanctions. Their decision to telegraph the intelligence that the invasion was coming took guts as well — because if Russia had pulled back they would have been accused of either lying or being hysterical. As it was, Biden and his team prepared the world for what was coming and laid the groundwork for a unified response.
And now some for fun
John Kerry is a highly decorated Vietnam Veteran who risked his life to save others and was injured in battle and also came home to speak out against an unjust war. He has more understanding of life, death, energy and, yes, fighting for freedom than CHICKEN HAWK Mike Ramirez who has never served.
John Kerry’s current position is to seek solutions to the climate crisis and, in that capacity, he has called for greater energy independence, including the user of electric vehicles.
This is an important issue, but it has little direct relevance to the Ukrainian war of self-defense against the aggression by Russia and its dictator who receives worshipful praise from Trump, Pompeo and Tucker Carlson.
Trying to tie the two together by someone like Michael Ramirez, who understands neither demonstrates the desperation and intellectual vapidity we are dealing with.
If Russia stops fighting, the war ends.
If Ukraine stops fighting, Ukraine ends.
Oil and gas are top products of both Russia and Ukraine, whose energy Russia covets.
Perhaps if we listened to John Kerry and plugged our electric vehicles into solar panels (as my wife and I do), we would disempower Putin and reduce the need to fight over energy which can be produced by sun, wind and other renewable sources.
