 I read through the list of Pulitzer Prize winners this morning and I noted with regret the photographic winner. It is almost unimaginable that everybody in the West and just about every Western government hails the Ukrainian resistance to Russia's special military operation which only erupted after all the same idiots repeated every single mistake that led to the Second World War. Ukraine continues to suffer an agonizing destruction as the West funnels endless weapons and money into the corrupt government's hands to fight the Russians to the last Ukrainian.

I have to say that I tend to side with Putin on this war. All of the West, all of NATO gave solemn assurances to Russia when the Berlin Wall fell and the Cold War ended that we would not advance the NATO frontier one inch closer to Russia when they permitted the consolidation of East Germany into the Federal Republic of Germany. They lied. They lied again when they assured the Russians with the Minsk Accords that the Russians living in the Donbass would be treated fairly and equitably by the utterly venal and corrupt kleptocrats running Ukraine. They lied again.

Even after decades it still amazes me how something like 95% of Americans always fall for the propaganda its own government and media put out as truth and fact.

Defiant, Americans don't know how to read anymore and rely on visual instruction such as the TV or internet streaming. Thomas Sowell hit the nail on the head by saying that the problem isn't that Johnny can't read, it's that he can't think.

The historical news memory is only 90 days according to Homeland Security and after 90 days a story can be used again as brand new. So expecting anyone to remember the Cold War promises or even the treaties and agreements the US/NATO signed is the same as a kid wishing for a pony at his birthday party.

The reality is there are no "good guys" involved in the Ukrainian insanity.

Sowell is, as usual, right. What is even sadder, is that Johnny doesn't want to think.

Amen, Brother.

There may be no "good guys" other than innocent civilians caught in the crossfire, but we would be lying to ourselves if we didn't realize that our own government is one of the biggest "bad guys" in this clusterf*ck.

As long as Johnny has his six-pack and the remote.
