Clarice "it looks like half of us are sure the Russians are losing and the other half, that the Ukrainians are." And that leaves out those of us who just don't care either way.

...or along the roads leading to the towns for miles and miles.
Henry, I was thinking how pussified humanity has become now that duct taping bad people to poles has replaced cutting off their heads and placing them on pikes at the town gates.

Mel "Reporters incapable of asking not only quality First questions, but unable to listen, or even hear, to ask the natural, follow on, Second question" They are all mere dumb actors standing on their marks reading their scripts while pretending, but failing, that the words & thoughts are their own. At least in the pre-woke days some of them were pretty...
Matt "Sooner or later there will be a line crossed" True that sometimes a sword entering from the front hits the spinal column and stops. Sometimes the sword goes all they way through without hitting any resistance at all.

MM "I think both sides got snookered by the radical left." Lenin did not use the phrase "Useful Idiots" by accident.

Clarice "We have allowed Europe to weaken itself by paying their defense costs and allowing them to sink into socialist welfare states at our expense." Back in about 1979 I wrote a Letter to the Editor of US News saying exactly that and it was actually printed in a subsequent issue. My 15 minutes.

Henry re Felicity Ace. To paraphrase the famous quote: "Better for 4,000 new cars to burn at sea than a single car burning in my garage..."

Beasts "This is a piss-poor time for internecine warfare." No warfare involved Beasts. JOM2 is a better site with better features for reading, for posting and for editing. And for me, more signal and less noise from the posters frequenting the place. There remains a handful of JOM posters whom I miss because they do not post at JOM2, so I come back to JOM occasionally to quickly see what my "white list" of posters has to say.

Jack "I take it from the paucity of comments and regular commenters on the subject matter that most have moved on to JamesD’s alternate site." I tried an experiment. I killfiled three prolific posters (all of whom I like) just to see and was amazed when I came back in the morning that sometimes two or even three screens in a row had any non-kf'd posts at all. That supports Jack's use of "paucity". It always comes down to Signal:Noise unless your time is of so little value that you just don't care.

True, Matt, except for the Narco sub featured in this book I just started: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B09F2J8YNB/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_d_asin_title_o06?ie=UTF8&psc=1
Clarice, I am ready for a "No prisoners" policy similar to the one used by Genghis Kahn.
Wasn't Jimmy Carter a techie from Rickover's navy? Or do I misremember?
:-) Mel.
Next up from Iggy: "Rape ain't rape unless it is Rape-Rape"
Genghis would have handled lawyers the same way, Narc.

Matt "Can we remove these cankers from our world?" Genghis Kahn had the formula for that.

You are a rock, Matt.

Henry, all these stories including the guy swimming for Penn as a girl remind me of a bunch of drunks at a fraternity party trying to outdo each other with crazy scenarios to see how far they can push things before they get pushback. But the knife just goes deeper and deeper and so far hits nuthin. They should have brought a longer knife... One of my dogs sneaks into our pantry and can unlock and open the bin with her food in it. If the level is high enough for her to reach the food, she gorges on it until Mrs. OL hears her then she gets yelled at. What is "score!!!" in dogspeak? That is the world we live in at the moment.

Iggy "where do we go to get our lives back?" Look under the Tree of Liberty once it gets nourished in the manner suggested by Jefferson. Might take a Dark Age before that occurs.

A dumb Lib replacing a Lib bothers me a lot less than suffering through a whole year of playing the Harris to SCOTUS and Hillary to VP then Hillary to WH as a bad TV reality show does. Whatever the outcome, that tragic comedy wears me out already.

Putin knows that Biden learned about Red Lines from Obama. Odds are that he and China both will expand their holdings while the grabbing is good. The US cannot afford to play the military card because that will reveal the nakedness of our emperor when our woke girly forces go up against the bad guys. The uselessness of our vast spending on our military to get what we got right now, today, might be the last straw concerning our Uniparty Leaders. And of course, there is that "we are broke" thingy.
