Is It 1938 All Over Again?

We talked about Russian forces surrounding Ukraine. Valdimir Putin is reportedly worth over $200 billion. Does that make him personally vulnerable to sanctions or immune from them?

We talked about the 1,430 New York City workers who were fired just before our last program because they refused to get vaccinated against COVID-19. That's around 0.38% of the total city work force. About 4,000 of them had been refusing to get vaccinated, but it appears that about 2,570 city workers decided to keep their jobs and got vaccinated at the last minute.

We talked about a New York judge ordering former president Trump and his two children to testify within 21 days in a long-running state civil investigation into his shady business practices.

We questioned Trump's sanity after he accused Hilary Clinton of, "break(ing) into the White House, my apartment, buildings I own."

We talked about the megadrought happening in the western part of this country. Research has shown that it's the worst drought in 1,200 years!
