I believe you deserve the opportunity to improve your lives in an economy that is built to last and benefits the many, not just the powerful few.
Which country is he talking about again?

I am entertained by Senator McCain's (R-Get Off My Lawn) comments on punk rock.

McCain's next letter is a bit more poignant:

Except it wasn't Pravda, it was Pravda.ru. The actual Pravda's website is gazeta-pravda.ru.

More on what Jeffk has already said: This particular Pravda seems difficult to be found. And here's the BBC's take on things http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-24159246 wondering, how much of an impact Mr McCain's rant will have. On anyone ...

Looks like took a stump speech about the Bush administration and swapped "Putin" for "Bush" & "Russia" for "America". Stay Mavericky !!!

Up next: David Cameron´s piece in the Chinese "People's Daily" about the dangers of the surveillance state.

Now, now, Johnny and Vlad, am I going to have to give you both a time out? Or are we going to start behaving like good little boys?

For more on what I was talking about up there.
Washington (CNN ) -- When The New York Times published an opinion piece by Russian President Vladimir Putin last week, Sen. John McCain was one of many elected officials who reacted with ire.
McCain, a vocal proponent of increased U.S.

Just in time for #throwbackthursday, the cold war is being taken out of the deep freeze.
Having caught a cold war chill I never could quite shake, the current frosty relations between the US and Putin send a shiver down my spine, as childhood memories of the cold war are quickly defrosted.
Uncle Sam was certain that the Soviets were not only concealing the truth but waging a campaign of hatred against us and our peaceful motives, embarking on his own campaign to dispel the lies and promote the American way of life. The deepening mistrust and accusations of lying between the US and Russia feels like deja vu all over again.Is the cold war being defrosted?

They punish dissent and imprison opponents.
Unlike in the US, where dissent is treated with such acceptance. See: Snowden, Manning.

I think dissent could be better tolerated in the US, and the US government should be less beholden to finance and other economic oligarchies, but I think human rights are an order of magnitude worse in Russia.

I'm sure you're right but then again that's what we're told to think. We still have the illusion of a few rights but more and more our rights exist primarily for the wealthy alone. Nearly everything McCain said about Putin's Russia could be said about our country on some level.

McCain, the man who used to fly jet aircraft to drop chemical weapons and napalm on the civilian population of Vietnam?
McCain, the man who visited Syria this year, to bolster material support for a known Al Qaeda terrorist?
McCain, the man who advocated illegal military aggression - "Humanitarian War" - against another nation to further foreign-policy objectives, at least four times in the past ten years?
Gotcha baby. The world is safer with a ship load of Putin's, than it is with one more like McCain...

I came to post the same quote. McCain could do more on this at home if he wants to be credible.

The "brightest" and most powerful men in the world resorting to "I know you are, but what am I?".
I find it difficult to fully express my displeasure with all of these assholes. It's almost beyond understanding, so much power and so little compassion or honesty.

They write laws to codify bigotry against people whose sexual orientation they condemn.
Wow, they really are awful people.
