Ya right.

Quote IV

“When people talk about, ‘I will see them again in heaven,’ it sounds so good, but the reality is that we won’t see each other again after we’re gone. That’s the sad part. I know people feel comfortable with death, but I don’t,'” Arnold Schwarzeneger

You may disagree with me. And that's fine. But justifying the military complex existence are not 2 reasons to be in Ukraine. Opinion This is the ‘America First’ case for supporting Ukraine

As Ukraine begins its spring counteroffensive, a 60 percent majority of Republicans say we should stand with Ukraine until Russia is defeated, according to a Harvard CAPS-Harris Poll conducted in March. But GOP support is softening. The share of Republicans who say the United States is providing too much aid to Ukraine has steadily increased from 9 percent right after the Russian invasion to 40 percent in a Pew Research Center poll in January


He forgot to mention:
1) Russia is no longer the Soviet Union
2) How does the US beat Russia
3) How does the US stay out of Ukraine for next 75 years.

This is a EU problem. This is not a NATO or US problem. We cannot continue to be the world's police force with our armed forces hands being tied by "Feel Good" military actions. Perhaps Mr. Marc Theisen should be the first infantryman stationed in Ukraine. Put his blood where his mouth is. fingers are.

The Fabulous and I were lucky. Our children all hit their teen years without cell phones. I can understand the pressure that parents today must be facing about their children wanting cell phones. But is it Social Media's fault their children have issues rather than a lack of parenting?

When whistleblower Frances Haugen pulled back the curtain on Facebook in the fall of 2021, thousands of pages of internal documents showed troubling signs that the social media giant knew its platforms could be negatively impacting youth, and were doing little to effectively change it. With around 21 million American adolescents on social media, parents took note.

Now, families are suing social media. Since we first reported this story last December, the number of families pursuing lawsuits has grown to over 2,000. More than 350 lawsuits are expected to move forward this year against TikTok, Snapchat, YouTube, Roblox and Meta - the parent company to Instagram and Facebook.

The wheels of justice move too slowly at times. Finally after 23 years a convicted murderer to get what he deserves.

A man who fatally shot two jailers in a failed effort to help an inmate escape prison is set to be executed on Tuesday evening.

Michael Tisius, 42, faces a lethal injection at a state prison in Bonne Terre for killing Missouri jail officers Jason Acton and Leon Egley nearly 23 years ago.

Governor Mike Parson on Monday declined to grant clemency to Tisius.

‘It’s despicable that two dedicated public servants were murdered in a failed attempt to help another criminal evade the law,’ stated Parson, a Republican. ‘The state of Missouri will carry out Mr. Tisius’s sentences according to the Court’s order and deliver justice.’

Car chase + Taser= Genius Award Winners.

HUNTINGDON COUNTY, Pa. (WTAJ) – Two people in Huntingdon County are facing drug-related charges after they were pulled over for traffic violations.

Sarah Pennington, 43, of Huntingdon and Shem Miller, 44, of Mount Union are both facing several charges for having meth and fentanyl, court documents show.

According to Pennsylvania State Police (PSP), On Saturday, May 27 at just before 8:30 p.m. an officer pulled over a truck after they observed it swerving over the double yellow lines.

Once an officer pulled the truck over, Miller, the driver, dove out of the vehicle and then lead the officer on a foot pursuit, according to the criminal complaint. Miller tried to jump over an embankment but fell. At this point, the officer tased him and took him into custody.

Shem?
