Taliban house-to-house searches terrorize US allies left behind
In the vacuum left behind after our 'glorious victory exodus' from Afghanistan, the Taliban have gone back to their old tricks and are systematically searching for & rounding up anyone that worked for or allied with the US / NATO forces or the prior government.
The effects of Biden's failure will be paid for by others for years to come.
This is too painful to watch, but too important not too share.
"...proof of what can happen when you disregard meritocracy, and embrace identity politics."
Boris Johnson admits that President Trump was right all along about Europe's foolish dependence on Russian oil:
"Boris Johnson has called on Western nations to take back control of their energy supplies and end an addiction to Russian oil and gas that has left them subject to blackmail by Vladimir Putin."
Just leave the damned time alone. It takes the Earth 24 full hours (well damned near) to rotate on its axis using Greenwich as the starting point.
Changing our zone time from the differential from Greenwich will solve nothing of what the new legislation predict.
Key word, predict.
Arizona got it right the first time in taking the option to opt out of the foolishness of having another full hour to bake for that extra hour once getting home.
Interesting thought -
Assuming the GOP take back the house soundly (e.g. 230+) & possibly the Senate later this year - what are the odds the GOP are going to try for an Impeachment go around against Biden, Harris, or even members of the DOJ / FBI, etc.
While likely a failing move, considering you'd need to 2/3 of the Senate to remove, there would be some interesting aspects of the attempts - such as publicly revealing a TON of dirt and illegality.. But the political costs might be prohibitive.

Remember the Russian victims of this madness, with permission I am sharing a few thoughts from a friend in Russia. She's 24 years old, and is scared out of her mind. Call was over WhatsApp.
"I can't hold my emotions," as she is visibly shaking and crying.
"I don't know what will be tomorrow or day after tomorrow. All life ruins now. Everything is ruined in the world."
Indeed, a refinery explosion near New Orleans on Monday morning is threatening to hasten that rise in gasoline prices, as gasoline supplies could find themselves even more constrained.
The explosion shook homes and could be heard for miles.
Marathon Petroleum Corp’s oil refinery in Garyville, Louisiana, is one of the nation’s largest refineries and a major supplier of gasoline and diesel. It has a capacity of 578,000 barrels per day.
This garbage is being passed off as a kids book.
“George knew it could be done. A boy could become a girl. She had since read on the Internet you could take girl hormones that would change your body & you could get a bunch of different surgeries if you wanted them & had the money. This was called transitioning. You could even start before you were 18 with pills called adrogen blockers that stopped the boy hormones already inside you from turning your body into a man’s.
