Kitten at heart, not a Top Cat

As always, thinking about you.
People in the U.S. always blame the president, for everything. Partly this is just the natural tendency to think that the guy in charge is responsible for everything that happens on his watch, and partly it's politics - which means that the opposing party is always looking for something they can blame the president for. However, most people are reasonably sane. They/we know that presidents aren't omnipotent. If they were, Biden would simply wave his magic wand and the invasion of Ukraine would be over, gas prices would be at the same level as they were in the 1950s, school shootings would never happen, global warming would be reversed, and the whole world would rejoice. President Biden doesn't do all that for one reason - he wasn't issued a magic wand when he was inaugurated. Therefore it's usually effective to respond to people who are dumping on the president with, "So what do you think he should be doing?" Maybe one of these days we'll get really lucky and someone will actually respond to that question with a genius idea. Until then, we most certainly will keep the pressure on our legislators to continue providing the assistance you need.I know that many peopole in the US are blaming Biden for all the price increases but without him Russian tanks would be at the Polish border by now. Please don't let up the pressure on your representatives
Paul9856 , even though you haven't yet responded I note that you were onsite today, around 3 hours ago. We've been worried.
That was very thoughtful of you but obviously they didn't appreciate it since as you said, they left it in a God awful mess. But glad to hear the renovation will become a holiday home for Alina and you. Will keep you in my thoughts, stay safe.When the war started our tenants in both the other apartments ran away from kyiv and we let them keep the apartments rent free while paying the utilities.
