FTFA: "... and matters little to Russians dealing with double-digit inflation and the worst economic contraction in years."

And it matters even less to Americans also dealing with double-digit inflation and the worst economic contraction in years.

How about reopening all the tanks, guns, bombs and other nasty things that they are using on those poor people.

US GDP forecast is 3.1% growth this year.  russia is looking at 5-15% loss of GDP, an almost unheard of correction in one year.  And russia's numbers look worse for next year.  The big killer of an economy is unemployment, until the US is shedding millions of jobs a month like russia, things are not falling apart.

Haven't we been expecting this? It's been implicit since Ukraine went 'nah' that Russia couldn't afford to keep the war going, so. I'm shocked, shocked.

darkeyes: But the Ruble is stronger than ever!


That story got so misreported and made it sound like the Russian economy is prospering despite sanctions.  Of course the Ruble is "stronger than ever" -- it's not on international exchanges anymore, so its value is basically what the Russian central bank says it is.

darkeyes: But the Ruble is stronger than ever!


There's a reason China constantly tries to manipulate its currency lower: too high of an exchange rate kills your export economy.  It's even worse when your import economy is slashed so fewer rubles are being spent outside of your country. russia can't get anybody to buy gas in rubles, so they have to use dollars/euro and then convert to rubles.  The stronger the ruble, the fewer rubles they get for their gas.  But their internal costs are all in rubles, which don't go down if the ruble gets stronger.

Not enough.  Until Putin's dead and Russia withdraws from all territory conquered since the USSR broke up, and the oligarchs are impoverished, AND Putin's successor apologizes... not enough by far.

The nation needs to be broken and humbled so it's at least a half dozen generations before someone thinks about conquest again.

On the plus side - he kicked Trump's ass and is backing the right side in Ukraine.

On the minus side he didn't stop the Supreme Court from trying to send us back to the dark ages. Though there is still time to pack the Court.

If $5/gallon gas is the sign of a bad economy, Canada must be in dire straits given the $6.50/gallon (USD) price there.

And at $10/gallon. Norway should be in the midst of total economic collapse.

Biden must be powerful beyond measure to destroy other countries' economies so badly.

You're right about the fact that science loses to politics.

Most of us need to look into the mirror if we want to identify who needs to be blamed for that. We really made a point out of dismissing what the scientists had to say over the past 70 years or so.

As for the cue card, you do realize that G. W. Bush used ones like those as well, right?

And Clinton? and G. H. Bush? And Obama? and Trump?

They're called "blocking cards" or sometimes movement cards. They're also used for awards presenters all the time.

I'm not a Biden fan, but this one is a nothingburger. Frankly, if he were as far gone as the critics claim, he wouldn't know to read the damn cards in the first place.
