... here at Peak Stupidity. I mentioned in a comment to Dieter Kief that I have followed hardly any of the details of the Russia/Ukraine War - been, what, 3 months now? That's the time since our first post on, basically, why we are not "covering" this story. "Covering" is in quotes, because, no Peak Stupidity's job is not to cover stories but to sift out the stupidity in all the stories.
The idea is not to diminish this war as a joke of any kind. War is as serious as things get for those involved. It could even escalate to where it IS the biggest stories for Americans too, if some of the Neocons have their way. However, I maintain that the huge, saturating amount of coverage is a purposeful big distraction for Americans on the part of the Lyin' Press.
There's been an acceleration in the ruination of the American economy. Inflation is now high enough such that it's not just in wonky Peak Stupidity on hedonics in which you'll hear about it. Even the most un-noticing of people are noticing. The country is going 3rd-World in other ways at a noticeable pace now, exacerbated by the Kung Flu PanicFest, of course. "Covid-19!" was the excuse for everything for a couple of years. Now it's "supply chain!"
I don't know if the Russia/Ukraine war story is still capturing the Infotainment audience it did before, as, again, I'm not paying any attention. Perhaps it isn't, as we now are hearing about the MonkeyPox. MonkeyPox?
I thank Peak Stupidity and Unz Review, commenter Adam Smith for this one, another of his great pieces of artwork. Great job, Adam!
Note: I found this web site extremely slow this morning, but then it's been fine the last few hours. Anyone else have any problems?
