When I say that Putin is now fighting the war on a second front, I mean one of popularity. On his announcement of the “reserve” fighter activation, hundreds of people were arrested for protesting across Russia. What’s more, flights out of Russia have been sold out as people try to flee the country to avoid the reserve service.

Mitch McConnel and the Republican Party are to blame for the erosion of confidence in the Supreme Court after their antics robbing President Obama from his legitimate right to choose one of the justices and in loading the court in their favor.

To me, this is the face of courage. Here’s a “differently abled” man, and yet he had no intention of allowing his challenge to change who he is, or how he wanted to live his life.
Politicians, any politician, will say things that they believe will increase their popularity in an effort to win. They are, after all, trying to get a job. There is money and power at stake, and they will say and promise what is necessary to get that job. This is why voters should vote based on a politician’s actions
I’ll never be able to convince my friend to change his stance, and he’ll never be able to change mine. And that’s okay. If I said something in yesterday’s blog that was wrong, then I do apologize
