The Grand Distraction

MS Copilot rendered image of an elephant and a donkey riding a seesaw atop the planet earth with satellites flying by. All this "divide and conquer" crap is getting kind of creepy. Scott Walker's canon sounded far and wide. Fending off Putin's play for Ukraine, the ongoing dispute over the holy lands, Xi ready to annex Taiwan as China's super port, Brexit gone bananas, everyone itching for an exit of their own rather than sticking it to their scary uncle together. Definitely sounds like some sort of 3, 2, 1, Cuckoo! Cuckoo!

It all comes down to long range ROI.

How can the US continue to referee all the turmoil abroad and keep the west from falling victim to its own best intentions?

Both sides are pleading their case for which fronts truly need America's attention right now. One side's like, look, we gotta get our own up and down on the up and up before we worry about the side to side. Let's wait until everyone's decided amongst themselves who's willing to look after whom on account of which lines are being crossed where. The other side's like, no way, we got this. We can help everyone help us help everybody help themselves.

Meanwhile, election time keeps screaming toward the finish line, right off the rails and over the edge.

Well, if that doesn't spell: BAD FOR BUSINESS, I don't know what does.

Oh yeah, COVID, duh.

COVID, COVID, it's coming for-yuh.
     Transmission rates are up.
COVID, COVID, it's coming for-yuh. 
      Vaccines aren't keeping pace.
COVID, COVID, it's coming for-yuh. 
   Mutations can't be CHASED!
