...and no bail. You really can't trust him not to leave our jurisdiction after being arrested. Money like that doesn't need a passport.

At least that guy dealt with his Neckfat or something.

Somacandra: Neckfat


Neckfat fark retired a few years ago and built a sizable mansion, complete with helipad, 100' yacht mooring, and 12 tennis courts, all on an island made from his neckfat.

You know, for all the wailing and gnashing of teeth you hear from some quarters about American soverignty (see UN, NATO, NAFTA, etc.), they sure don't seem to care that these bodies get to exist and operate freely and extranationally, regardless of how much impact they have on the economy and governance of the US.

Pffft. They'll get their just reward in due time. It's inevitable their Russian partners will shaft them, just like Russian companies and politicians shaft any other western companies investing in the country.

Since when is this surprising to anyone? Big business moguls doing what is in the company's best financial interest? Despite laws, or what affect it may have on the average worker and his / her family. The day of the "family atmosphere" is long gone. Depend on them farking over the worker, and skirting / breaking laws to put more coin in their already bloated cash filled pockets.

Doubtful they violate the sanctions in place. Remember, Obama and the EU avoided energy sector sanctions. Most of the sanctions are travel and banking.

But ignore reality and go back raging because oil!

It seems odd how the banking industryhas gotten even more centralized and even too bigger to fail... yet a ppersistent presence on fark thinks Dodd-Frank is awesome and another set thinks we need a national bank to make it even more centralized.

Hey, I know! Hurt him/them the worst you can; don't buy their product. It will affect profits/share holder returns to some degree, and this is all these people care about.

Seriously, I haven't bought any BP products since they bungled the Gulf mess. If enough people do it, it will make an impact. Go down the street and pay 5 cents more; stand up for your principles and take action, no matter how small. Without at least that, there is no room for talk...

Well let's think about that. We'd never be in a  "war" war with Russia because it's a nuclear-armed state. Everybody knows that. We only have cold wars with Russia. Just because we have to take war off the table we shouldn't have to take treason charges off the table. That would be letting Russia's nuclear arsenal give cover to people who would otherwise be traitors but for the fact that fear of nuclear war is preventing the prerequisite war status. His actions are cold treasonous and it's basically the same thing.
