Does anyone else share a contrarian view on the Ukraine war. I get it, it’s sad and sucks. But I’m sick of billions and billions (and counting) of dollars being sent over there with probably zero oversight. Keep the money here in the US instead and save our economy first. Ask those Europeans to foot the bill. I also find it ironic that we open the spigots just cuz a bunch of people who look like us have started dying, when black and brown people have been dying for generations.
