Donald (T)Rump could announce 2024 presidential run as soon as Nov. 14: Sources
https://abcnews.go.com/Politics/donald- ... d=92666987


And yet I sense an imbalance in the "force" which suggests people believe the fall of the USD (which arguably is intentionally being made competitive with the Euro since it is valued about the same now with overprinting money) is making the US overcompensate and that Russia was somehow merely "stepping up to the plate" while the world is waiting for RUMP 2024 to 'Make America Great Again.' That all the missteps in the middle east and the proxy war bordering Russia were just provocation for Russia to be justified in invading it, without documenting any legitimate truth that instigated the incursion and yet (someone I've regretted giving my email to) are hypocritical to ask, "so you are arguing that the Iraq invasion was justified?"

Very close to responding: MAYBE YOU AREN'T FUCKING PAYING ATTENTION!

What is even more annoying is being sent cringeworthy voice audio of RFJ Jr with his spasmodic dysphonia voice, and very little indication he bothered reading the links sent to make an argument.

The best response is to realize that positions in University don't indicate a person knows what they are talking about and is oblivious to Orwellian newspeak, as this was the guest on the RFK Jr radioshow (who is criticized for a number of things, just like Oliver Stone, or the Mongolian Steven Seagal.)


The thing is the fucker I'm talking to came from a country involved with the fall of the USSR and left when it was dealing with the fallout of the Soviets.


He would probably still fall for the belief that "invaders are everywhere and about to kill us, so you better join the military and come onto the firing line. . . "

An example of how the lottery works:

Agricultural Bank of China robbery
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Agricultu ... na_robbery

You would have to buy over 300 million tickets for an expected probability of one of those to win.

And now that idiots hear of a $1.6 billion Powerball, many are buying them.

Similarly, a soldier returns from Ukraine on extended medical leave after being injured from a shelling and fires a flare gun in a night club with plastic ceilings and bolted fire exits (was this to prevent entry from the outside or did he plan this out to kill people?) He handed a woman flowers who was at the bar and proceeded to the center of the night club to fire it and was arrested during the day. Most died because they couldn't get out in time (and inhalation doesn't take long.)

Night club was owned by a friend of Putin.



Moment Russian serviceman, 23, (Stanislav Ionkin) is arrested after 'firing a flare gun into the ceiling of a nightclub' sparking an inferno which killed at least 15 people and injured dozens of others is revealed
https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/articl ... eople.html

He might have assumed he would avoid conscription (but also may not have given a damn and wanted to make a statement?,) as people do go to extreme lengths and even pay others to injure them, but here it might have been someone that was mentally off from the experience of battle.


I found out about it from this post.

I get appointment emails with RSVP links to click but I can't tell whether the RSVP request comes from the sender or from an app. All I was able to see was that it involves Google calendar. One of my apps, or Android itself, inserts suggested replies into emails that I open. The suggestions look like they could be sender generated, but I figured out they're not, so I'm not trusting feature-looking things. Senders who want me to RSVP should say so within the normal text of the email and direct me to reply, not to click some wigety looking RSVP button.

I literally knew these people when living at an apartment complex when I was age 6 (and I think they have a brother and a father who for some reason were checking up on who the new people were living in their apartment who were involved with confrontations involving petty bullshit, which as they had knocked on the door to confront the childish nonsense and were kept back with a turkey knife from some feet away if they entered because he was much older and threatening; and I believe their family dynamic was dysfunctional and territorial.) It was definitely the same names (Laura and Pamela Vasquez (now Hoyt) and I'm not sure but I think they called their brother Artie (Artemio) and the father was Javier. . .

On May 23, Sotheby’s sold one of Manzoni’s cans for 124,000 euro (~US$ 165,500) at its auction to an unidentified European collector. While selling at double the reserve price (the hidden minimum price needed to be reached by the bidder), the value of the cans has risen because approximately half the cans have exploded.
