More of the Way We Are Now
The black mayor of Richmond who vandalised Monument Avenue now wants to make Richmond into a “casino city.”
Did the globally mandated mask wearing save a single life?
Joe Biden is a museum quality specimen of a political hack. He has fed at the federal trough for decades, representing a rotten borough, without ever having a real thought about what is right for his country. He always says what he thinks people want to hear. True or false or concern for the consequences never comes into it. Founding Americans would weep with sorrow at such a place-holder ruling the people.
Politics is not the realm of doing good. Millions of insipid, shallow Americans seem to believe that foolishness. Politics is the realm of vanity, greed, and deceit.
The armed conflict now going on: One side is led by a statesman and a patriot. A statesman has a realistic and long term view of the best interest of his people. Putin is a statesman and a patriot. Joe Biden and his accomplices are neither. They have a puerile self-referential view of the world, are seriously shallow and ignorant of history. What else explains a claim that “diversity” strengthens the armed forces, against all the evidence of history? Putin is not a Communist---too smart and experienced for that. Reverse of the Cold War, Biden and his henchmen are Communists. They push Critical Race Theory, a form of Marxism.
In general, one should not criticise and weaken one’s country in time of war. However, the U.S. is not at war and no constitutional declaration has been passed. The U.S. government is illegally making war through third parties, based in part on delusional theories of “global democracy.” This calls for the opposition of every patriot who loves his real country and people.

While in the military I was in casino towns and to me it done nothing for them and made them trashier. I spent a good bit of time in Shreveport and Biloxi and was not impressed. The casinos combined with the military bases bring in influences foreign to Southern culture and often antagonistic simply makes me view Gulfport, Biloxi, and Shreveport as disgusting and lost Southern cities.

Thanks, Dr Wilson. What hypocrites the neocons are, demonizing Putin for invading Ukraine! However, invading, occupying and destroying countries 6500-7000 miles from one's borders is just fine; countries which did not attack the U.S., and posed zero threat; not to mention the atrocities of 1861-1865 against the Confederate States of America carried out by Lincoln and his fellow Yankee terrorists. Ah, the chutzpah.

Thanks for these thoughts Dr. Wilson. Events like this remind me of my first time living in Alabama ca.1968 and turning on the kitchen light at three in the morning and seeing how bad the roach infestation truly was. The Republicans have shown their true colors as well as news sources we might have thought were "fair and balanced." Sickening.

The US has been meddling in Ukraine for a long time. The states in the Donbas region want to secede as is their right. Ukraine, like the US, is corrupt and needs to break up.
