Tim Cook is after Putin’s Children!

I sometimes wonder if Putin, much like my adorable and traumatized dog, is completely insane or a secret genius.

Secret genius?

This came up a lot with the Ukraine war. Did he really just think he could walk into a sovereign land and plant a fucking flag? Did he really think he was fooling anyone by saying he totally didn’t know who these thousands of unmarked soldiers were? Was he seriously expecting that a counter sanction on the West will weaken their resolve?

BUT! He did just walk into Ukraine and plant a flag. He fooled no one with these unmarked soldiers, but the denials kept the war localized, with little more than a finger wagging from other nations. Whether the sanctions will impact the European economy is unlikely, but support for it internally has boosted his national profile.

Or completely insane?  (yes, I will use any excuse to share this picture)

Now, I find myself asking the same question. Really, can we expect any less than taking down a statue of an iPhone from a place that put up such a statue in the first place? It’s almost difficult to get mad at them. When Ralph worked out how to get up on our counter and proceeded to eat an entire roast chicken, was I upset? Yes, but it was hard to blame him. He doesn’t know any better. He just knew he wanted that chicken.

Of course, Ralph doesn’t have access to nuclear launch codes and a political stranglehold over the largest country in the world.
