Time has occasionally, although I don’t like it much, awarded the Person of the Year to a group or idea. Awards are for most impact either for good or evil. Therefore, I would nominate “News Censorship and Bias” as the Person of the Year given the revelations at Twitter, Biden’s ministry of truth attempt, and other such nonsense literally determining now who our presidents will be and suppressing information or manufacturing misinformation among the population.

BTW Putin is a doofus too! A Pox on both their houses. This was caused by Putin sensing weakness and going for it. If I were President I would not care if any other Country liked me, I would want them to FEAR what I might do.

Swindling more money out of the American people than our own government is quite a feat.

I have a feeling this is tongue in cheek. I like Newsom for the most part, but I don’t think he should be person of the year, reasoning being his effect is mostly in California, whether that effect is is positive or negative, depending where you are on the political spectrum.

I don’t remember everyone on the list, there were some good choices. However, I think Zelensky is the right choice. He has shown courage and leadership. My heart breaks whenever I hear the stories from Ukraine, people killed, now worried about heat in their harsh winter, so much destruction and misery forced on the Ukrainian people for no good reason, other than Putin’s power grab.

Hanne how would you be liking living in the Ukraine about now? Or maybe dying there. There was a way out Z didn’t take it.

Ricardo, That is why he is person of the year. He didn’t take the easy way out, I stayed and rallied his people. No I would not like living in Ukraine, I would like to visit some day when the war is over. I have customers and have worked with people from Ukraine, they are very nice hardworking (at least the ones I have come in contact with) and I can say the same for the Russian people I have worked with. There are lots of countries I wouldn’t like to live in Iran, North Korea, many others. I’m lucky I’m from Denmark, and I’m lucky to live in the United States. In either country you have a lot of freedom, not exactly the same, but enough that you can pretty much live your life the way you want to.

He took the easy way out but thousands of his citizens didn’t. Sorry you got sucked into the saving a democracy thing. The Ukraine is not a democracy.

No hanne, nobody agrees.

Donald Trump. I miss his mean Tweets and unparalleled sense of humor. Plus, you never really knew what he’d say next. Joe Biden has lulled me to sleep with abject boredom. But, that was his intent … now, wasn’t it?

The funny thing is, 99% of tweets are extremely mean on twitter, it’s mostly angry lefties and they love it. The irony.

So they take a guy who could have negotiated a deal with the Russians, like not joining NATO and maybe better trade deals, or more rights for the Ukrainian Russian speakers but no he gets his country ruined and thousands and thousands killed and they make him, “Man Of The Year”. It may be brave but it is brainless. This is not the 1700s. This is 2022 it is time to talk not fight. Learn how to negotiate. Don’t tell me about Putin. We all know what he is. At least they didn’t make demented Joe the MOTY.

Putin sensed ,rightly it seems, that the POTUS is feckless and that Russia has nothing to fear from US or NATO.

Close, the truth is the military industrial complex wanted a proxy war with Russia that includes Biden. The MIC will make billions. Russia was not our enemy.. Biden could have showed strength but didn’t.. By the way the Ukraine is not a democracy.

Hands down, or likely palms up, Sam Brinton.
I like risk takers. In this case, and I do mean case, “They” take a huge risk in flaunting a lifestyle most humans find repugnant. “They” score a high paying job with the Biden administration. And while likely making more money than Frank Sinatra, ‘They” risk it all by stealing luggage. That’s one heck of a risk taker right there.

Time, Newsweek, 60 minutes, they all jumped the shark a while back. Completely biased, zero credibility. It’s unfortunate.
