PIRATES OF THE CRIMEAN
Putin's already fabulously wealthy
but I can imagine "new opportunities" in Crimea, the
favored vacation area of Russia. Rich opportunities!
Poll made in 2011 found that more
than 1/3 of Russians agreed with characterization of United Russia
as "the party of crooks and thieves."
That's Putin's party, of course.
My advice to Crimea is hide your
valuables and especially your prime real estate.
The "Thief In Chief" is
coming for you, Crimea. Don't say I didn't warn you. He leads
the party of corruption.

It says "United Russia Party
of crooks & thieves!" aka Vladimir Putin's "party
of power" that rubber-stamps his policies.
Stealing elections? How could anyone
accuse such honest politicians of anything so devious & unethical?
They don't know the meaning of ethics.
See more about the Party
of crooks and thieves and Alex Navalny
who pushed hard against Putin's corruption
Putin was not amused. As he typically
does he had anti-corruption activist/politician Alex
Navalny convicted of
embezzlement. Ironic to the max,
that one. Accuse your accusers of what they accuse you of. So
transparent it's breathtaking.
5 years sentence to a Russian corrective
labor colony for Navalny. Labor camps still exist in Russia,
so perfect for political prisoners.
The system of colonies was introduced
as a post-Stalin replacement of the Gulag labor camp system.
Here's a Gulag map.
Someday the Russian people are going
to convict Putin of high crimes and misdemeanors, if they could
just organize effectively against him.
One charge against him might even
be embezzlement. I predict the $51 BILLION dollars spent on Sochi
Olympics will someday be investigated.
You want to bring down Vladimir Putin?
Take a page from his own playbook and, after an investigation,
indict him for corruption. You're welcome.
I no longer find Putin amusing in
the least. It's time for him to go! But, oh, what memories he
left us. See Google

Astonishing claim but unverified:
Putin, the Richest Man on Earth"
In 2008, with Putin forced to give
up the presidency after he had served two terms, then-Secretary
of State Condoleezza Rice wrote in a
diplomatic cable that, according
to a Russian opposition source, Putin was "nervously seeking
to secure his future immunity from potential
law enforcement investigations into
his alleged illicit proceeds." So he picked his trusted
Dmitri Medvedev to succeed him. Putin is safe.
Superman is afraid of Kryptonite,
Achilles heel was vulnerable, what Putin may fear most is investigating
anti-corruption lawyers. Scary!
Reports from Crimea & major cities
in Eastern Ukraine report Russian flags are flying. But look
beneath the surface!
World Powers Suspend Preparations for G-8 Summit in Russia
They've decided for the time being
to suspend participation in activities associated with preparation
of the June G-8 Summit in Sochi.
Putin Parrot: "Pieces of G-8?"
Not bloody likely.
"Pirates not welcome" sign
is in force.
Take that, Russia!
So, the Pirates of the Crimean took
possession of their prize but a rising tide is pushing them into
How quickly the tides of war can
Back off, Captain Putin, or I'll give
your broadsides a taste of cold turtle steel!
