I knew it, sooner or later, the true response on Russia invading Ukraine, as echoed by the extremists in the Republican party, becomes Greg's mantra, too! And he was one of the outraged on the forum when I even suggested a con or two might not side with Ukraine!

You'll have to ask Greg that but if you read his responses it's highly doubtful it would be anything close to either figure and whatever it might be it would likely be too much, America being first and all... The G7 countries are sending about 20 billion in aid as of a few days ago. I wonder if Greg wants that, too.
And here I expected a question from Mel along the lines of "why didn't we get it there earlier"...

Just a Republican led committee of US senators:

"The panel found Manafort’s role and proximity to Trump created opportunities for Russian intelligence, saying his “high-level access and willingness to share information with individuals closely affiliated with the Russian intelligence services... represented a grave counterintelligence threat.”

Does anyone think Mel knows better than the Republican led committee?

And if those quotes were in reference to Hillary or any other Democrat, you and the rest of the cons would have gone apeshit over it...

WORST Performance by the US Stock Markets in 90 YEARS and its occuring under the Biden Presidency

And that's because of obstructionist senators in congress-50 presidents as it were- each thinking they know what the hell they're doing. BUT, at least we have a major infrastructure bill that passed and the Republican reps and beneficiaries of the funding of their districts for it and who voted against it are touting it as if they voted for it...

It veered off the tracks from Mel's post #10 and off course and off topic from there on but it's a genuine Melvin derail!...

This GOP congressman probably doesn't care which way the markets are going because when he works off the beach like a genuine Cancun Cruz, it's reportedly for free!

Maybe Margi Taylor Greene can lend him her $92,000 paid for by campaign donations SUV if he stops in Georgia on the way back...

These leftists today are nothing like the Democrats of Old.

These people hate the country as it was founded.  They hate everything about it, and they would like to burn it all down and start again.
I guess that's why they passed the infrastructure bill, huh?...
