UNleashed If the UN can successfully see hundreds saved from that besieged steel plant, why can’t it UNblock the Black Sea blockade and save hundreds of millions from starvation in the rest of the world? “Why would you deny innocent victims of war food?”Executive Director of the World Food Programme, David Beasley, tells Scott Pelley about the challenges the WFP faces getting food to millions of Ukrainians who are food insecure or starving. https://t.co/4sahvHrABK pic.twitter.com/NqO3a3ZeKh— 60 Minutes (@60Minutes) May 2, 2022

U.N.: 4.5 Tons of Grain Stuck in Ukraine Due to Russian Blockade | Democracy Now!
U.S. Pressures Chinese Head of FAO to Blame Russia for Worsening Global Food Crisis (foreignpolicy.com)
The U.N. estimates that if the war in Ukraine continues some 47 million people in 81 countries will be added to the already swelling ranks of those enduring acute hunger, according to a recent report by the World Food Program. Even before the Russian invasion, the world was facing growing hunger, with some 276 million people facing acute hunger.
The United States and its Western allies contend that blame for the latest surge rests squarely on Russia’s shoulders, because its military intervention has deprived the world of desperately needed wheat and grains. Its Black Sea blockade of one of the world’s largest exporters of wheat and other staples, combined with attacks on Ukrainian farms, is driving up the cost of global food prices at a time when supplies were already perilously tight.

but we’ll think about all that another day and party on with the corps profiteers
It’s been a rough week on Wall Street after the Fed raised interest rates, and our former president claims to have done more for all religions than anyone who has ever lived.
For some reason the five liars on the Supreme Court have been so isolated they failed to understand anything about the day after SFB inauguration. It was the largest single day protest in U.S. history. That was nothing compared to what will happen if the five liars do overturn Roe. Although greedy old perverts are writing laws to make loss of a fetus, even spontaneous abortion, criminal, even murder. Once again the power mad go beyond anything understandable to be the most Nazi like they can go. There will be a change, and the five liars will not like it.
Only 21/2 of the 5 actually lied about Roe. Kav and Gory lied and the hotdog prevaricated. I can’t remember whether Alito was pressed on it, and Fat Clarence was busy fending off a different coke and pubic hair issue in his hearing.
The same court that would not block protestors at abortion clinics as the protests were “free speech” is now hiding behind non climbable fences and street barricades of cement blocks.
Apparently, what is good for the goose is not good for the gander.
That’s two and one half, not twenty-one halves who were Roe liars.
Today is the run for the Lillies – Kentucky Oak. First one really back due to pandemic. Keep an eye out for wild hats and a whole lot of ladies looking pretty in pink.

you’ll have to look really close to see the hats under rain hoods. heavy rain in the ‘ville is expected at Oaks race time. but tomorrow’s derby looks to be just sprinkles if any.
nothing like a soggy droopy fascinator that probably cost a fortune trying to match the haute couture
Basically speaking, Television, Rock and Roll, Israel, and Me are the same age.
I accept this fact as being a part of the Great Plan.
Charge it is a mudder.
The russian navy has a new fleet of submarines. Ships that used to be on the surface. There are reports that the Admiral Marakov has been hit and is on fire. Unless the russian vessel is tied to a dock when it burns, see aircraft carrier, submarines and other boats, they flame out and sink, see good
shipsubmarine Moscow. The hit is “not verifed”, however a lot of intelligence aircraft are circling over a ship that is on fire. Plus there is drone footage to view. Since it is “not verified” I won’t pop any links – yet.
Sturg, me too. Just another couple cogs in an immense machine. (Israel does have 3 years on me.)

I’m tired of “firsts”. I want to see a bunch of sixths or tenths.
I know, I know………republicans.
An idea whose time may have come.
I came in before Israel in 1944. We got our first television when I was five. It required a round magnifying screen over the round face.
My uncle was the definition of “early adopter” about darn near everything.
Something is listening to me. Maybe the damned GRU is doing it. Last week I was talking to a friend and bemoaned I needed to go bra shopping, but I hated it. Guess? Yup. FB, Twitter, ads on websites, and just about everything online is filled with bra ads. Now I hate shopping even worse. I have to find what is listening and make it not listen.
First or not I really like Karine J-P. She’s a good un.
I agree about karine JP….my point is I’m ready for diversity to be the norm so that it will no longer be a novelty.
I just bought “Forever Plaid” as I was in a mood for 50s four-part harmony. Can’t imagine what Google will make of that.
“The recommendation was submitted to Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, a Republican, who accepted the decision later on Friday night and formally ruled that Greene will stay on the ballot. The anti-Greene challengers said in a statement that they’ll appeal Raffensperger’s decision in state courts.”
“This decision betrays the fundamental purpose of the Fourteenth Amendment’s Insurrectionist Disqualification Clause and gives a pass to political violence as a tool for disrupting and overturning free and fair elections,” Free Speech For People, a constitutional advocacy group that backed the challenge, said in a statement.”
“…under oath about January 6. She denied knowing about plans for violence and repeatedly said she couldn’t remember key facts — like what she discussed with White House officials about the transfer of power, and with whom she spoke as January 6 approached. One piece of evidence that stood out to the judge was an interview Greene gave to Newsmax the day before the attack, where she was asked what the plan was for the joint session of Congress where Biden’s victory would be certified. She said, “This is our 1776 moment,”
