He’s basically doing an IRL worker rush, throwing his labor force onto the front line in a desperate gamble.
It’s not a great strat once your opponent has artillery and air units, but hey, that’s why he’s in the Kremlin and I’m not.

Midterms are just over a month away. Current aggregate polling puts Dems keeping the Senate at a 70%~ chance, with the most likely scenario being them picking up a single seat to have a 2 seat majority. Reps are still projected to win the House with also a 70% chance, most likely scenario being they pick up like 8 seats to have a 5 seat majority.
Catch is trends show the downward trend for Republicans since July. Before then both chambers were a lock for Republicans, set to gain many seats in both at around a high of 90% chance each. But after, their lead kept falling and falling as the Dems’ chances kept growing, up to now where what was supposed to be a complete rout in both is instead the Dems gaining Senate seats while the Reps only controlling the House on a razor thin margin.
The takeaway is that as time goes on the advantage slowly creeps towards the Dems, and with over 30 days left they’ll likely close/increase their gaps towards an even more favorable outcome.

50 seats now means it only takes one half of the Manchinema dyad to stonewall the Dem agenda.
Gaining a 1 seat majority means both parts of Manchinema will have to join their Republican buddies to stop the Dems.
If the Democrats get 52 seats then Manchinema loses its kingmaker powers, and the Dems can go tell it to go touch grass. As long as the 50 actual Democrats in this hypothetical vote in lockstep then they can use Harris VP tiebreaker to pass certain policies that only needs a simple majority to pass.
Manchin did all he could for them as the good little Republican he was. He blocked Biden’s agenda after agenda. Shoot, during Trump’s 4 years Manchin voted for Trump’s agenda roughly 51% of the time. Manchin was and is the GQP’s most valuable agent in sabotaging the Democrats, but because his programming malfunctioned one time and Biden got to pass the Inflation Reduction Act they’re pissed at him.
And I’m all for it. Fuck Manchin.

I hate to say it buuuut… one of my Republicans friend believes the Green house effects aren’t real and made up. So I explained to him what they are.. but he knows what they are but still thinks they’re fake

What do you mean by “anti-SJWs?” What kind of SJWs are they against? You have to be specific about these things because depending on who says it, an “SJW” might be a reasonable person who wants equal rights or they might be the insane and malicious variety of SJW who are self-righteous assholes manufacturing outrage for clout.

And I nowadays just use “bean mouth” because it’s also used by others and it adds to the cuteness.
Maybe I’m nowadays liking cute things, and bean mouths are starting to “grow” on me!

In the latest “You can’t spell ‘Putin’s Cock-sock without ‘Republican’” news, CPAC tweeted this the other day:
Other than the usual butthurt over America helping Ukraine kick Russia’s ass, they really admit who’s side they’re really on with that “Ukrainian-controlled territory” crack.
They’re really saying that Ukrainian land isn’t Ukraine’s. This is some Tucker Carlson level of propaganda.
In the latest “Republicans want you to die. They just want to fucking die” news, both of Florida’s senators Rick Scott and Marco Rubio beg the government for relief funds to help rebuild after Ian. Just days after Scott voted against that very thing and Rubio didn’t even bother to show up.
How Republican of them.
