I want to shout congratulations to the Ukraine armed forces for their recent brilliant victories over the Russian Orcs who have been despoiling that beautiful nation. Ukraine deserves the fullest financial and weapons support possible. Putin has exhausted his threats of nuclear attacks against the West--he may or may not go to nuclear arms and we must be prepared to respond. Any fear of Putin's instability will not make us safer. Our full arms support for Ukraine is a sacred duty in the defense of world democracy. Ukraine is fighting our war; let's give her everything needed to crush the Russians, without delay!

FOX News is wrong to criticize America's support for Ukraine; it is completely shortsighted to fear Russia, which is being reduced as a world threat by this much smaller country.

Ukraine is championing Western freedom. God bless and grant her victory!


Response to Kelly Scoles' letter

Hi Kelly,
Any "fantastical conspiracy theory" you may see in conservative Republican political thought these days, "profound" or otherwise, is a mirage of your own making. I had to look up "QAnon". I've never really known what it's all about. I don't bother with the weirder political spooks, too many, too unimportant. And I don't believe for a second rumors about chanting being overheard from Joe Biden's basement, like "Double, double toil and trouble; Fire burn and cauldron bubble," though some say they're brewing-up something evil again, something collusion-ish. No talk of drinking blood, however. Maybe Shakespeare's spirit is afoot?

You're right about "people getting whipped up into accepting and believing ridiculous things and feeling more powerful because of it." Democrats do believe ridiculous things like men becoming women and women, men, by thinking it so, and recalling these words, "Come you spirits, That tend on mortal thoughts, unsex me here." Well, if it's good enough for Lady Macbeth, I think it should suffice for transgendering Democrats. Or maybe Mr. Macbeth had it right? "[Life] is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing." Maybe Biden's basement is full of idiots, because what Democrats say often signifies nothing.

I'd rather not think about this. However, while I don't have "gauzy recollections of my own [redneck] childhood" I can believe Democrats do "become addicted to resentment and vengeance against those who disagree with them" due to their "fantastical conspiracy theories" (Trump collusion) rising from the Biden basement, with Hillary stirring her pot of witches' brew, “Fillet of a fenny snake, In the cauldron boil and bake; Eye of newt and toe of frog, Wool of bat and tongue of dog, Adder's fork and blind-worm's sting, Lizard's leg" - and Hunter's laptop.

Yeah, I know, it doesn't rhyme - but it fits, despite the frog toe.

William, I apologize - and to you as well good readers.
