Posted just so I could share that quip.

Actually, the Russian Economy Is Imploding

Nine myths about the effects of sanctions and business retreats, debunked.

In fact, many of the excessively sanguine Russian economic analyses, forecasts, and projections that have proliferated in recent months share a crucial methodological flaw: These analyses draw most, if not all, of their underlying evidence from periodic economic releases by the Russian government itself. Numbers released by the Kremlin have long been held to be largely if not always credible, but there are certain problems.

RACINE, WI—Touting the cleaning product’s dual use on both beings from parallel pockets of existence and the spirit world, SC Johnson introduced a new Windex formula Friday for removing menacing apparitions from the mirror. “There’s nothing more off-putting than a dirty mirror covered with streaks and a shadowy, leering figure standing directly behind your shoulder—Windex’s new formula banishes them both,”

Peter Lamborn Wilson, Advocate of ‘Poetic Terrorism,’ Dies at 76

Putin dies and goes to hell....

Putin dies and goes to hell, but after a while he is given a day off for good behavior. So he goes to Moscow, enters a bar, orders a drink, and asks the bartender:
-Is Crimea ours?
-Yes, it is.
-And the Donbas?
-Also ours.
-And Kyiv?
-We got that too.
Satisfied, Putin drinks, and asks:
-Thanks, how much do I owe you?
The bartender replies:
-5 euros.

FYI, Found on FaceBook: https://educationtruthproject.org/

Education Truth Project is a Political Action Committee whose main purpose is to educate the public on real issues facing public schools and Boards of Education.

Our specific goal is to support local school board candidates and causes that share our values by:

*Reforming our public education system by promoting pragmatism and critical thinking. We expose hyperbolic, fake curriculum issues like CRT and “The 1776 Project,” in Public School Board’s.

*Helping candidates with the resources and support necessary to combat the toxic candidates and environment created by MAGA movement and fake news organizations.

*While divisive groups want to return to the past for answers, we at Education Truth Project are focused on our future
