It really is par for the course for Putin. A consistently predictable pattern of corruption. Coincidence and controversy abounds around this sadistic ego-tripping scapegoating denialist. A modern Stalin no better than the spoiled puppet dictator Assad he protects.

Honestly, it really makes me wonder why Putin who purports himself to be such a strong leader is too cowardly to be upfront with his actions.

Appealing to fear and using fear as intimidation and leverage is commonplace and well-documented. It's an oligarchy with a mafioso crime boss at its head. This is not a conspiracy, this is evidence that continues to mound. If anyone wants more insight on modern Russia and Putin, view/read:

For The Shock Doctrine, I recommend the thoroughly-cited book, but I linked the full doc Klein's husband made that's a good summary. Here's the 6 minute trailer. It doesn't just focus on Russia, but uses them as a case-study for the thesis.

Some side docs worth viewing:

Cossacks: The Resurgent Militiamen - highlights the ethnic group that has in recent decades served as loyal henchmen to the Kremlin. As seen in, "Inside Putin's Russia."

From Russia, With Hate - doc from 2007 highlighting far-right extremists in Russia and getting a little too close for comfort.

The Russian state is ranked poorly on government transparency and corruption, and on safety for Journalists—in both cases, the bottom 20th percentile in the world. Not exactly where a superpower wants to be in rankings.

Looks like Breezeway. Or Breezewood. Or whatever that place is called. Pennsylvania.

Put that thing back where it came from, or so help me!

Edit: Obligatory thank you for the gold! I honestly didn't think anyone would really care about a Monsters Inc reference/meme but apparently it made a bunch of you happy so I'll be happy about that

This man took a bullet while protecting my sister from the gunfire in Vegas. by tynation in pics

Good shit man. I'm a few weeks short of 1 year myself. Used to think i would never get off and now I can't imagine going back. Most days at least. I still have dreams about it sometimes and few bad days where i fantasize hopping back on the bus. "Playing the tape forward" is an AA saying that really sticks for me. When my mind starts playing its tricks and thinking I can use with no consequences I play out the tape to the end. It always end bad.

It's been a long winter, even by Canadian standards. Makes you think about moving to warmer climes.

I'll put my snowblower on a trailer and start driving South. I'll keep driving until someone looks at the snowblower and says: "Hey, what's that for?"

That's where I shall live.

Then (18 months ago), and now. Today all is well. by Gr8erMinds in pics

[–]Gr8erMinds[S] 71 points72 points  (0 children)

I am 34, have raised myself from the age of 11, have 7 felony convictions, have been a drug addict for 18 years, been sober for 18 months, was a male prostitute, been in 50 fights, have had 70 jobs, my daughter died, I'm fighting for my son now, and am ACTUALLY doing good for the first time ever. I just want to help others NOT become addicts. It's all about prevention for me.

I weighed 155 lbs. in the picture on the left (taken in jail in May 2016) and 215lbs. in the picture on the right as of March 2018. I have gained a total of 85lbs. since the picture on the left, almost 2 years ago.

I hope what I'm doing is what people need. They need what I have to offer (I think).

Dear OP, I went to sonar school with your brother and when he passed it was felt by all in the community. I'm sorry for your loss.

Pift. Those sailors clearly weren't taking advantage of the 8 hours of rack time they were allotted Maintenance needs completed. 6 hours of rack time they were allotted Warfare pin signatures need done 3.5 hour of rack time they were allotted Mandatory GMT.
