    I feel at the beginning of being vindicated for my politics, but more importantly, I pray we are at the beginning of more people catching on to the bill of goods Trump, et al, sold to them. This has trickled down to the small towns as if lawlessness has been given permission to follow Trump’s example.. I had the J&J literally the same day or the day before you did, btw. So far so good(◍•ᴗ•◍)❤

  5. Sounds Constructive

  6. Instead of submitting to Putin like Trump did, setting up boundaries and working out the issues. Sounds reasonable…

    It’s all about setting boundaries to someone. Watch and learn it will be helpful throughout your live.

      Setting boundaries? Not sure if you’re aware but the US has something like 800 military bases outside of its own borders — including 34 currently surrounding Iran. How many Russian military bases does Russia have outside its own borders? 2?

      @Harvey Manfredsenjenson your missing the point. Putin is ready to occupy Ukraine after he already has taken the Krim from Ukraine. I don’t think Biden is abele to stop Putin but at least he is trying. Ukraine is an sovereign country, so do you still have the opinion that Putin doesn’t have military outside his Russian borders? And what about Belarus another sovereign country he occupied. It’s an dangerous situation for Europe and the world if someone needs a war to distract his people from him being an violent dictator.

  11. The world feels safer when the us has a. Foreign strategy in place! Us. Citizens need to take a closer look at prez candidates world business connections so that we never again elect a prez that can be easily compromised by foreign leaders as trump clearly was! We should also note the business people russia grooms so that we dont elect them into high public offices!

  12. Trump also cancelled the U.S surveillance over Europe and scrapped the planes!!! Putins idea?? WTF

  13. Being here now after the tRump calamities, the USA was completely nude from 2016-20 ! Our intelligence agencies were used as a means to further protect irregularities by tRump campaign aides that later became part of the trump administration!

    President Biden is awesome and it feels good to sleep at night knowing that the US is in stable hands.
