    PS – I deal with Russians too – probably much more than you do. No hatred for Russia – hatred for abusive murderous regimes. Shouldn’t we all be that way, whether the atrocities by Russia, US or ISIS or Taliban or gangs in Congo or Libya? Personally I like being consistent – sorry if it [...]

    I’m rooting for the people of Ukraine. You’re just some anti American fetishist that goes so far as to root for inhumane bloodsuckers just to feed your antiUS spite. While I have my bitches about awful American policy especially the last 14 years with the rise of the neocons, I try to limit my anger [...]

    To prevent Russia’s resurgence as an expansionist evil state? Yeah, I support that goal. Don’t you? Or you think the gulags and pogroms and the Iron Curtain And the conquests to Kamchatka and Afghanistan and Caucusus and Stalin splitting Poland with Hitler were made up?

    Huh? I support all Latin American entities being free of US (and Cuban – and Russian and Chinese medding- except supporting free and fair elections and helping out the poor & disenfranchised – if we do that ever – and efforts for improving economic growth and opportunity. I was against trying to take out Chavez [...]

    And you do realize that Greece has been run by kleptocrats as well?

    You have a lot of nerve to cheer on Russia and complain about kleptocrats. Where do you think the Ukrainian system developed , if not under the guise of the Soviet union with Stalin and Brezhnev? Presumably you know about Putin’s gang of oligarchs confiscating businesses and property, as all as the games Yanukovych was [...]

    I do find it funny that people complain about Poroshenko asking for 15 billion € and Soros suggesting 50b €, but no problem with propping up Greece to the tune of 250 billion Euros – what’s the angle in all that?

    Greece doesn’t have a Chamber of Commerce – that’s part of the problem. While I imagine cutting out subsidies to their shipping magnates makes sense, Greek shipping has taken a beating the last years, so increasing costs will not make them more competitive. Since 50% of Greeks were sneaking their income offshore to Switzerland and [...]

    As your map shows, Ukraine is primarily ethnic Ukrainians. It’s 2015 – why wouldn’t Ukrainians want a non-Russian satellite country? Do you think the annexation of Crimea should make Ukrainians warm to Russia or favor the EU option? Russia seems to be trying for a slow NovaRossya expansion – is that fine with you? What [...]

    That’s an awful list – with the collapse of shipping & tourism, the public sector is hugely overloaded as 1st “industry”, and they’re talking about nationalizing much more – railroads, airports, mail, water, private hospitals & *banks*? Then they want to double health spending and eliminate citizen payments & provide free health care to a [...]

    Nice letter – too bad his embracing the Russians will only bite him in the ass – but I guess since the Greeks now endorse annexing territory unilaterally, they’ll now recognize North Cyprus as independent and Turkish.

    “Building, maintaining, and even beautifying the commons is an important part of what makes civil society both civil and a society.” And standing around cleaning up leaves and grass is the height of makeshift work – I don’t deny that some good stuff was done, but much was focused on getting people out of poverty… [...]

    Really, people are starving and scraping dirt, and I have to agree botanical gardens are important or I’m a pompous overprivileged ass? when other people are picking fruit all day to survive it’s more important to beautify highways? I’d expect a more honest answer to be “some of what we were doing was needed, some [...]

    Thanks, would rather sit here beating my toe with a ballpeen hammer and doing a homemade root canal.

    Well, they were a nice balance between makeshift jobs and building needed infrastructure. I think you’re somehow glossing over this if you act like all the WPA work was all critically needed – sewing? art instruction? folklore collections? As Wikipedia notes, by 1938 45% of blacks were on relief or working for the WPA . But my [...]

    Wow, vehemence towards him? As he insulted Code Pink and any non-completely-starry-eyed rejection of Obama and any leftwards socially-responsible sentiments in the rudest terms possible? He’s simply an asshole and asshat, playing both roles with vigor since his head and rear are typically linked at the O-ring. If you like who he’s shitting on, you [...]

    Well no, I don’t really see it as a crisis for Keynesian emergency subsidies. The crisis peaked 6 years ago. The continued structural problems aren’t because the economy’s failing – it’s because the state’s been bought and co-opted by the 1%. We don’t need more government jobs or more screwy Obamacare in sheep’s clothing – [...]

    Apparently you missed the atrocities of the Chechen wars, and think lying down with pigs makes you somehow pristine. Or you think those were another false flag operation? I can’t combat this much paranoia, hallucinations and wishful thinking, and frankly don’t see the point. You & Putin can go get a room if that’s where [...]

    You’re claiming Bandera fans killed 5000 over the last year? Delusional – even Russia Today doesn’t presume that.
