Guy walks in and asks the bartender
"Isn't that Obama and Biden sitting over there?" The bartender says, "Yep, that's them." So the guy walks over and says, "Wow, this is a real honor. What are you guys doing in here?"
Obama says, "We're trying to prevent WWIII. And the guy says, "Really? How are you going to do that."
Obama says, "Well, we're going to impose sanctions on six of Putin's policy advisors and one bicycle repairman."
The guy exclaimed, "A bicycle repairman!!! Why impose sanctions on a bicycle repairman?"
Obama turns to Biden , punches him on the shoulder and says, "See, dummy! I told you no one would worry about the six policy advisors!"

I'm sure the NCAA will find a way to punish the Pac-12 for this somehow.

I don't understand.  If Obama has a magical time machine that he used to crash the economy, why doesn't he use it to go back in time and give child Putin a hug so that he grows up to be good?

CPennypacker: Dinki: CPennypacker: Crimea is part of Ukraine now. I'm sorry if you're having trouble understanding that.

Actually, it pretty much appears that it isn't. You might want to get used to that.

Maybe we should give back all the land we got from Mexico in the treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo? After all, it was theirs until 1848. That means they can claim it back whenever they want right? Or is it only if a bunch of Mexicans move there and then vote to give the land back?

oh man, that's time machine etiquette 101:

article 2 section B.

your time machine can not be used for the purposes of good.


But Obama is evil and breaking rules is evil, so I could totally see him using his time machine for good.  Because he's evil.

Well of course, everything is Obama's fault.  He's MAKING Putin invade Crimea.  Putin didn't want to, Obama forced him to do it.  It is ALL Obama's fault.

Dinki: Nabb1: "No, you!" Go read a book, kid.

Oh look... you lost. Thanks for playing!


Lose? Lost what? Some pissing contest with some partisan shill who constantly carries water every day in the politics tab for his political masters? Because I don't feel like indulging your petulant demands to fill the enormous gaping void in your comprehension of the geopolitics of this whole affair? Because no matter what anyone posts in contradiction to your assertion you will reply with some snide response? Yes, a winnar is you. You can have the FARK thread. Print it out and put it on the fridge.

dave2198: Do you know why the majority of Crimeans are ethnic Russians?


And? The Tartar purge was reprehensible, but Stalin did lots of reprehensible acts. The simple fact is that now the majority of Crimeans are ethnic Russian.

good point.

I bet he didn't even bother to read the damn literature that came with the machine. There should be a certification course, at least.

Wooly Bully: Dinki: This is all for show. Why? Because pretty much everyone that is honest knows one thing- that Crimea has much stronger ties to Russia than to Ukraine, and has had since they were annexed by Russia in 1783. So it only makes sense for Russia to absorb them now.

Why yes, it makes perfect sense to endorse Stalin's ethnic cleansing of Crimea by saying "well now most of them are Russian so Russia should get it", good thinking there!


Annexing a place and ethnically cleansing it is kinda their thing:

They pretty much killed and replaced 90% of the population of former Prussia.
