A thought occurred to me. You know how Russia is eyeballing all of its property it used to own? Well, we bought Alaska from Russia. You didn't just used to see it from your porch, Russia OWNED your porch. Heck, they may well be gunning for it again.

They can't find anyone not tied to Russia.  Just two degrees of separation would be nice.
 
2017-07-22 08:02:47 AM  
Come on subby, Russian connections are a prerequisite to serve in this Administration.

It's like playing Five Degrees of Separation in a room full of people who are all Kevin Bacon...
 
2017-07-22 08:03:34 AM  
I'm beginning to think that having a tie to Russia is an application question.
 
2017-07-22 08:05:45 AM  
This might explain Trump's twitter storm of nonsense this morning. Come for the buttery males, stay for accusing the media of supporting ISIS.

There's just so little left to say except fark Trump and fark anyone who voted for him. Over and over again.

Wasn't there a retracted CNN story about possible Russian shenanigans a few weeks ago?

Just because it doesn't pass journalistic muster doesn't mean the story is false.

My local community college doesn't offer Russian language lessons. :-(

Yea, that story was about a debt that he supposedly owes. I'm waiting for that one to come out as fact, with maybe minor details changed (like the total amount, or some such).

So how much more? What will it take, Trump supporters traitors?
 
2017-07-22 08:16:53 AM  
Trump wants "loyalty." How do you ensure that? Pick people who are at least as compromised as you are, and they know you know it.
 
2017-07-22 08:17:04 AM  
I love this joke: A lawyer, a spy, a mob boss, and a money launderer walk into a bar. The bartender says: "you guys must be here to talk about adoption."

I guess there must be quite a few GOP folk looking to "adopt Russian babies". Who'd a thunk that so many GOP Folk were so caring about Russian babies?

Try Duolingo, both browser based and app. Really good.

I don't know the details of that story, but Rachel Maddow proved that someone is shopping phony evidence around to discredit journalists.

Anyway, obligatory for this type of thread:

The Intercept had a podcast episode in which they examined the thing she talked about. It was apparently a really obvious forgery - like, not even close to credible.

Perry, maybe? I can't seem to recall his name coming up in any of the Russia conversations. Though I won't be surprised if I'm wrong.
 
2017-07-22 08:42:15 AM  
At this point, predicting that Trump team members will have connections to Russia is a bit like predicting that you'll find hydrogen and oxygen in water.  It's not that impressive a feat, really.

Yeah, if I had to guess, I'd have been more along these lines.

Interesting analogy... given that "ruthlessly kill them all, in a number of overlapping ways" is about the only thing that works.

/ not that I'm advocating violence or anything. I mean voting, of course.
