Is it possible to still be Even Handed about the Russia-Ukraine War? What will the world's response be to the Russia-Ukraine War? It's mostly against Russia right now, but is that the response that will prevent WWIII and is there sufficient attention being given to that possibility, made more likely almost daily now?

US/NATO Provoked Ukraine War Say Most Experts On Russia Politicians and members of the media have nearly universally expressed shock and dismay at Russia's invasion of Ukraine, but their incredulity is belied by the fact that numerous Russia experts and historians have been predicting these events practically since the fall of the Berlin Wall, pointing out that a Russian response to ongoing NATO incursions was virtually inevitable.

Covid Compromises: A Chance to use the latest science to Save the Republic It's time for Covid Compromises, to move to an understanding that the disease is endemic and away from mandates and toward rational solutions. Will this happen before democracy dies? Meanwhile, Trump-supporters are dying for their anti-vax cause, maybe enough to swing the next election.

Will 2024 be the election battle of the ages? Hmm, do you think Sanders is separating himself from the corporatist Democrats for a 2024 presidential run? I know, I know. Sanders will turn 83 September 8, 2024, just before election day. Well, guess what? Biden turns 82 just a few days after the 2024 election, on November 20.

If we can't end the filibuster, at least modify it. The fate of the world might depend on it. There's no time to lose. The filibuster essentially erases the narrow margin of control Democrats have over the senate. Bias in the senate towards the red states, gerrymandering and vote suppression will see to it they never get another chance, unless the Democrats can deliver something to the working people of the country, not in 4 years, but in less than two.
