I tried to email Putin last evening …

I decided that I should check out if I could. And, I’ve got to tell you, the way The Kremlin’s communications instructions were written out in plain English language was more organized. Too bad that the form that asked for “Surname” (yes, I know what that means) produced an error. I tried several iterations, but damned if my message wasn’t able to go through.
So, in case our buddy Putin’s webmaster checked unsent forms from the US, here’s what I had to say…
Dear Mr. President,
I could not help but notice, once I discovered that I was able to send an email message to you, that The Kremlin’s system set up to receive comments, questions or complaints seems orderly and is clear regarding the criteria for such commentary. No such communication system from the constituency to government offices appears to exist in the States. Therefore, I will have to pass on to US President Joe Biden that it can be done. When I routinely reach out to him, I’m limited to only phone the White House on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday between the hours of 11 AM and 3 PM, Eastern US timezone. Should American citizens call, they are limited to two minutes. Nothing comes of it.
I am doing everything I can to call an end to the madness of a long-standing corrupt US government and (my definition) corporately controlled fascists. I hope that you understand that many people such as myself (and my husband) have paid attention and do not support the idiots in Washington, DC. There is no such thing as a two party system and nothing has been the same since John F. Kennedy was pushed out of the way. After all, we all breathe the same air and stand to do better working peacefully.
I don’t pretend to know the real YOU, but trust that I have shown you the real ME, as well as so many others who want peace, and who will never stop working on behalf of peace.
Hell, no... I'm not giving up...

We are an arrogant species, believing our fantasy based "facts" are better than the other person's fake facts.
If Row vs. Wade is overturned, women could lose the right to not get pregnant in 26 states.
The Republicans are four year olds. The Democrats are six year olds. There are no grownups.
Normalizing insanity has been the conservative's sweet spot at very least since the beginning..

Sorry, I know war is no joking matter, but the thought of reaching Putin put that in my mind.
Contacting a politician can be like trying to get a call back from a shady business person. The old chestnut used to be along the lines of leaving a message with their receptionist saying “Just want to let your boss know I’ll have their money by Friday. Oh, here’s my phone number.”
Lol, those types always think that there are people who owe them money.

Pleas for peace fall on Joe’s deaf ears. Putin might actually listen.
Regardless, I wonder why President Putin does not speak publicly about the fact that this is a PROXY war, which was necessitated by American interference in the region!?! Since our American news media never presents this viewpoint, and since it is the truth (as Oliver Stone’s Ukraine on Fire makes clear), then why does Putin not make use of such relevant, propaganda-killing information?
