    You have an impression about what they don’t talk about on TV based on that you don’t watch TV?

      Based on the fact that they’ve accomplished almost nothing tells me they are toothless, personally.

      Ratchet them way the fuck up.

        Just curious… What are your expectations for sanctions that have been in effect for a year or so?

        Eh, I’ve accomplished a few of the things which were my plan for all of my life, so now I don’t know what to do anymore with those branches, so to say.

        More important, why are you so butthurt? Relax, it’s just a shitfest in the interwebs. We all get back to tea and work and our pets and hobbies and relatives and friends from it.

          Why in the world would you think I was talking about what YOU accomplished…? Or that I’m butthurt about anything except how toothless and ineffective the Russian sanctions have been on their main goal - which was to stop the constant murder of Ukrainians?

          “Toothless” was referencing Russian sanctions, that part of the conversation didn’t suddenly shift to focus on you.

            My bad. I think I saw the word “he” there. Agree on the sanctions, but I think their main goal was to insulate Russia and not prevent murder. Since the latter would be less about payments in Steam becoming pita and more about Russian gas and oil not getting to Europe in any form, laundered through Azerbaijan or something else too.

      Google the word “sample”.

      Also we live in the society, don’t you know? When some old lady repeats stuff about Zelensky being a drug addict or a dumb joke about democracy in Ukraine, you know it’s not her own thoughts.

      Point being - last time I heard anybody talk about sanctions like that, out of nowhere with bullshit mixed in, was more than a year ago.
