Let’s get something clear, I’m not a cold-hearted man, but this fight between the Russians and Ukraine isn’t our fight. Ukraine isn’t part of NATO and they aren’t our allies, maybe Joe Biden is beholding to the Ukrainians, after all, they have given his family millions of dollars, but to us regular Americans, the Ukrainians don’t mean anything to us. Like I said, it’s not that I don’t feel for the Ukrainian people, but what does it matter what the Russians do there? And please don’t give me this crap about “defending democracy”, the Ukraine government isn’t a democracy, not even close.
In 1976 during the height of the Cold War, I was stationed in what was then West Germany and on several occasions, I went on patrols along the edge of the Iron Curtain and I saw for myself the barbed wire fences, the mine fields and the guard towers. My unit was the 3rd Armored Division and our job was to prevent the Soviet Army from invading West Germany, if war had ever broken out, we were supposed to plug the Fulda Gap and stop the Soviet’s. Well, the Cold War is over and even though we aren’t exactly “best fiends” with the Russians, what do we care what they do on their side of the planet?
In fact, let me be even more frank, we have serious problems here at home in the United States, inflation is higher than it’s been since Jimmy Carter was President. We were ‘energy independent’ when ‘orange man’ was President, oh and our so-called NATO allies, Trump got them to pay their fair share for the first time since NATO was formed, but now that the ‘adult’s are back in the room’, we’re back to paying the full tab.
And don’t even get me started about our southern border, last year over 2 million people walked across our border, all at the invite of Joe Biden. We have entire communities living on the sidewalks of our most beautiful cities, they crap on the sidewalk and shoot-up drugs in broad daylight. And it seems that if you commit a felony (if you’re ‘black’ that is), you have a ‘get out of jail’ free card, so you can go right back to your neighborhood and commit another horrific crime. And the cops, they’ve been defunded by the democrats who run these cities, they don’t care, people like Lori Lightfoot have private security details that protect them 24-7.
The bottom line is, we are in a mess here at home and while I feel for the people of Ukraine, it’s not like we are in a position to do anything about it, sanctions don’t mean crap to Vladimir Putin, he’s sitting on a mountain of cash, so sanctions don’t mean anything to him. And our own mainstream media is beating the war drums encouraging us to get more involved in this conflict, because that way it takes the focus off of all the bad things that are happening here in our own country and of Joe Biden’s failures as President.
Let’s face it, no matter how much Russian vodka a bartender in Portland Oregon pours into the gutter to protest the invasion of Ukraine, it’s not going to make a difference in the long run. We need to fix our own problems, we need to stop the invasion of our southern border, we need to end all of the draconian COVID mandates that have crippled our country for the last two years and we need to restore law and order in our cities. What we DON’T need, is to get involved in a conflict that has absolutely no effect on us here at home. We need to fix our own problems, if we really wanted to screw Putin over, we would start producing our own energy like we did under President Trump, as long as we are buying Russian oil, Putin wins. Why is that so difficult for Democrats to figure out?
We have a chance to fix things here at home and we need to win big time in the midterm elections, we need to completely neuter the Democrat party and we need to get Joe Biden and Kamala Harris out of the White House. And perhaps more importantly, we need to send Hillary Clinton to prison for the rest of her natural life for the crimes she has committed against the American people. In other words, we need to send a message to all of those corrupt politicians who have sold us out to the Chinese, the Russians AND the Ukrainians, that we will no longer tolerate their petty, greedy acts of treason against their own people.
