Where is this place in the world? It is nowhere but somewhere south of Russia and to the east of Poland and bordered on the south by the Black Sea. Wherever that is. Why should we care? The only thing we have in common is Hunter Biden. Hunter was able to help them develop their oil and gas resources. For over a million dollars, I’m sure he was instrumental in the development of the country’s resources.
It seems that we are close to war with Russia over this old Russian Provence. Seems Russia still thinks it belongs to them and they want it back. It also seems lots of Russians live there. I guess it’s because it’s on the Black Sea and winters are better there than in Moscow. What does all this have to do with us? Nothing. It is part of eastern Europe and someone in Europe might care, but not us.
If this has no relation to us, why are we making such a big deal about it? Some might have seen a magic trick where they distract you so you do not see what is going on around you. So, if all the news is about Ukraine, we might not notice what is happening at home. That seems like a good idea and things around us are very disturbing, so focusing on Ukraine might take our mind off how bad it is at home.
That’s great I do not have to worry about the price of gas or the crime around us. Do not worry about my shrinking dollar, I can relax and sit back and enjoy a libation, while I can still afford one. I do have to admit I’m looking at prices more and Bailly’s Irish Cream is out. Some other brands are half the price and with coffee, you do not notice, much.
So, we’re sending troops to surrounding countries but why are they not sending their troops? Maybe they are but we have had a lot more recent experience fighting and dying. We may not even lose any boys or girls (I still call them that), just a lot of money. Money is no problem because we can just print more.
Those printers may have to work an extra Sunday or two because they are already committed to every Saturday. They probably will appreciate the extra overtime as their dollar is worth a lot less and next year it will probably be worth even less. Got to pay those increasing energy and grocery bills.
Now that we are focused on something that has no value to us, things will not seem as bad at home and that is a good thing for the party in power. The voters will not notice how bad things have become at home in a little over a year.
