  • The mid-term elections are coming up soon. It’s that semi-annual season of hope where we all think that we’re going to vote our way to a better tomorrow
    • Some cynics see this as Charlie Brown trying to kick the football. I see this more as Bullwinkle exclaiming “This time for sure! Presto!”
    • The 2024 Presidential race starts the day after the 2022 mid-term. I’m already investing in futures in canned food and shotguns in anticipation of a principled, disciplined, and collegial election.
  • The war in Ukraine is in its third trimester, and things seem to be swinging back Ukraine’s way at the moment.
    • Ukraine is liberating large chunks of territory in the face of crumbling Russian resistance. Soon, the cliche about French rifles, never fired and only dropped once, will be superseded by something to do with Russian tanks
      • Russia is mobilizing dozens of fresh troops to throw into the fight. By fresh, I mean either old enough to remember that Brezhnev was a hard man, but a fair man, or young enough that we should soon see a tearful documentary on Vice about the use of child soldiers from the slums of Nizhni Novgorod.
      • My prediction is for a long, cold winter and a bleeding sore of a conflict for the foreseeable future. I call it my “Second verse, same as the first” perspective on modern warfare.
  • Putin says that all options are on the table, including the use of ‘special weapons’. With all the attention being given to the possible use of either tactical or strategic nuclear missiles, I hope somebody on our side is tracking the locations of nuclear 152mm and 203mm artillery shells.
    • Nothing says “I love you” like a brigade firing for effect with 2 kiloton glow-in-the-dark pushka pills
    • Fire enough of those at a city, and eventually one of them will work.

    I’m with you on the stocking up. Re Putin et al, I’m not sure FJB or his handlers have enough cojones to actually respond… sigh
