    “I don’t know how we’re going to get to 2024.” At this point I’d be happy just to make it through the summer. But even that is hit or miss.

    What a world.

    It looks like the propaganda war’s won, morning perusal of the news, views, blogs and dog/pony shows all the bad guys are Russian, the EUs pure Prussian and all are alright with the upcoming fight.

    Welcome to the twenty last century.

      Twenty (the) last Century (20th)?
      or Twenty, it’s the last century (Well, Bye).

    Meh, none of us have any power to adjust, steer or manipulate anything essentially beyond our front doors so I’m not getting excited, one way or another. TGIF. The weather here in the Deep South is warming up and the bluegills will be headed to the beds soon. I have a great wife, a yard man, my kids are fine and everything else is gravy. And best of all, I never worry about anything.

    Just adding some standard stuff. The military does: readiness. Repo Man’s always intense! Military’s always getting ready. But, the tempo is disturbing – no doubt. When I see USAF flyovers here, I notice the frequency and number, and direction. I look for anomalies.

    Great website.

    Biden’s on the way out – percentages are high on that. Did Japan just move on the Kuril Islands? Is the tinder gathered and are the matches ready? WTF is going on with the USMC? Every former MC Commandant in a piss fight with the current corps?

    Russia desperately wants to ring Ukraine from the sea, but how do you do that with a limp dipstick army? Ask yourself this: do you want Russia with more power, or less? I did not ask do you want NATO/EU with more power. Never assume the consequent, Aristotle.

    You can tell a lot from watching military traffic but just as often all you can tell is there is military traffic. One tell I often experienced was when multiple Air police were guarding a runway, storage location or aircraft inside the AF base when that wasn’t a typical event. When you see a C-17 off by itself with half a dozen or more air police with M4’s at the ready you can be sure that aircraft isn’t carrying MREs.

    Struggling a little bit with YouTubers giving all the “inside” information. Having a hard time believing they are “allowed” to just put it out there uncensored. Everything can be digitally manipulated. Just saying, not that I know anything.

      That’s a big 10:4 from my perch in these hills. I take everything I read, watch or hear from Medusa with a block of salt.

  • Dirk April 8, 2022, 9:24 PM

    Amy, it’s ALL propaganda. I heard just yesterday that Russia lost the war! Not that I care a twit.

    • Casey Klahn April 9, 2022, 8:34 AM

      The war isn’t over but the Russians are in retreat. In that regard, they are losing the war. It’s very plain to see and no propaganda news is necessary to see it.

  • KCK April 9, 2022, 3:23 AM

    At one point, MW says that Turkey is Russia’s ally. That is some shit right there, because ostensibly they’re our ally – but then you watch the shit they pull, constantly, and you realize they bed down with the bear.

    It raises my trust level with this guy.

    A bully big country goes into a lil country, curb stomps the crap of of it, and retreats for dinner and dancing.

    Casey you do understand this is a girl fight which has no intentions of being over,,,,,,,,,until it’s met others requirements/ expectations

    Think I’ll go back to listening the The Grateful Dead Purple Begonia’s? “ Natilla, did I get it correct?
