So Barry says he's against Russian interference in the Ukraine.

When this goes to Q&A I just bet that the MSM is going to skewer him about the $5B spent to destabilize the Ukraine and Nulands selection of Yatsies Ratsies as the official government.

How to tell when you're being sold another war



And if you look in the comments you'll see that everybody is buying this shit. The connection you're supposed to make: Putin registers Jews. Putin = Hitler. Hitler had to be stopped. Putin must be stopped! Christ, I thought the first person who brought up Hitler or Nazis was the loser in a political argument? What the fuck happened to that? Is everybody forgetting the first round of protests in the Ukraine? You know...the ones we were told by our media that were good? There were Nazis there too (proven by wiretapping to be financed by us and colluding with us and the EU). Then we get our puppet regime installed in the Ukraine... Now suddenly protests are bad. Look over there! There's Nazi's protesting...THIS IS BAD. They are taking over government buildings (just like last time). THIS IS BAD. OMG they are registering Jews!! Hitler! Hitler! Putin is Hitler! Anybody else getting whiplash from the bullshit? So the same people who were working with the Nazis before (US) who want a proxy war in the Ukraine (again, US) are now handing out fliers to Jews telling them to register (once again, US) and now we have to go kick some Russian ass. Remember when they were cooking this shit up all last year making a big deal about anti-gay policy from Russia, etc. During the Olympics too. This whole ordeal has been coming for a while, and none of their bullshit reasons are justifying it. Am I really supposed to care about Russia annexing an island without firing a shot, that voted overwhelmingly to join Russia? I thought we liked democracy? Oh wait, they'll tell you the vote was rigged. Let's then let's look at the demographics:  http://i.cdn.turner.com/cnn/interactive/2014/02/world/ukraine-divided/media/ukraine_map_region_language.jpg http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/worldviews/files/2014/01/ukraine-map-composite.jpg Is it rigged when everybody in D.C. votes for Democrats to keep their job? Is it rigged when almost every Mormon in Utah votes for a social conservative? Is it rigged when 95% of blacks vote for the first black president? ..... The economy must really be bad if they want to tango with another world power (who by the way has even more nukes than us)... just because the EU tried to make more debt slaves out of the entire Ukraine and Putin pissed in their cheerios...and he's not done. And I'm no Putin cheerleader, that little skit with him and Snowden today was complete bullshit (and I am a big Snowden fan). Must be how Snowden earns his keep? I'd rather live here than in Russia, as would any sane person. I'm very grateful for being born here, no place else I'd rather be. But WHAT THE FUCK? How many proxy wars have they been trying to start since the Afghan drawdown? This must be like the 6th one...do we need more stimulus because QE is ending or something?

Point taken.  What, Putin's boys don't get Viagra?

You are right, unfortunately the registering Jews things looks exactly like a NATO/NeoCon sales job.  If it is that, then I have to say, I can't believe the idiots think they can take on Russia.  Then again, I guess we all know they really are that stupid and that irresponsible.

That is an insult to arsholes. Sociopathy is the defining characteristic of anyone seeking public office. The level of sociopathy is exponentially correlated with the level of official capacity and social control (i.e. Little League board < school board < city council < state legislature < CONgress < FLOTUS)

Go read some of the comments on Yahoo articles sometime. Apparently no money was spent and Nuland never said "Fuck the EU." It's all just wild conspiracy theory, and if you disagree you're either racist or a Putin-lover.

What bothers me isn't so much that Americans for the most part are ignorant, it's that they're lazy. The ignorance is willful. There's simply no excuse not to know easily verifiable facts in the age of the internet, but it's easier to sit in front of the boob tube and be spoon fed only the side of the story that the government wants you to hear.

Putin's a tough-guy asshole, and I've said as much plenty of times. What's astounding, though, is that folks refuse to go back to the beginning of this mess — a mess with Uncle Sam's fingerprints all over it.

And by fingerprints, I mean easily verifiable evidence, just like at a crime scene.

There's no doubt that both sides are propagandizing the hell out of this situation, but one side is directly responsible for causing the fiasco in the first place. And as hard as you may try, ignoring that fact doesn't simply make it go away.

That's if they are interested in what's going on at all which they have proven time and time again they aren't.

I feel sorry for Edward Snowden when he finally puts 2 + 2 together and figures out his sacrifice was probably all for naught.

These are pleasure seeking creatures in need of stimulation and entertainment that requires no critical thought processes or effort at all. Period. Worthless consumers of endless crap.

There was, and probably still is, a multiple choice test by the Mathematical Association of America.  If there were 5 possible answers, they would add the number of correct answers, and subtract off 1/4 of the wrong answers.  So if you guessed randomly you would end up with a score of zero, on average. In other words, there was no benefit to guessing if you couldn't eliminate at least one of the choices.  Apparently the test was difficult, and some people ended up with negative scores.

If there were a way to take take everything some of those Yahoo posters think is true that is, and subtract off what they think is true but is false, I'm not sure many of them would end up with a positive number.
