    “hand picked by the likes of Murdoch’s, Koch’s, Mercer’s, oh and lets not to forget the Saudi royals and Putin.”

    Sounds like Citizen wants a war with Russia.  What a lunatic

    Don’t be ridiculous, Player.  As in stop providing baseless ridicule.  No one wants a war with Russia, cuz US and Russia have, by far, the most stockpiled nuclear weapons.  So much assured mutual destruction could ensue. Thus it either isn’t going to happen, or if it does, you are unlikely to be around to care.

    But in your book, it seems that means that we must cower from and hide and deny any bad and democracy threatening behaviors by Putin.   If that is your policy, that is what deserves ridicule.  We don’t have to suppress our own free speech in order to avoid a war with Russia.  They don’t want a military war with us either.  They want to win by undermining us using our society’s freedoms against us.  Stop helping them by denying their on-going propaganda and influence attacks that undermine what is left of our dmocracy.

    I bet you have guy.  Bet it would be a blast spending an evening at the bar hearing all about it.

    Tim about sums it up.  Player is more interested in putting everyone into his little pigeon holes because that keeps it nice and simple to judge – the real world is too overwhelming.  Well, that’s how we wind up with Trump lovers, now there’s a guy that says it like it is.

    Right, Player?

    Earth citizen – then tell us what should be America’s foreign policy on Russia. Please.

    You don’t need help. America’s doing a great job on its own.  In decay – civil war coming – barbarism assured

    Our current Russia policy appears to be Trump giving Putin regular tossed salad fluff jobs and supporting policies that are in Putin’s interests.  e.g., Trump wants to bring Putin back to the G-8, and for everyone to forget all about that little Crimea invasion and continuing occupation thing.  It was all just because of  Obama anyway, according to the Trump.

    I forget where you are from Player.  If you are an alien, why do you even care?

    Do you actually think Trump isn’t stupid enough to think this up all by himself? He’s well qualified for such stupidity and doesn’t need any help from anywhere.

    Trump wanting to buy Greenland is yet another sign of Putin’s puppetry

    https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2019/aug/21/trump-wanting-to-buy-greenland-is-yet-another-sign-of-putins-puppetry

    Richard Wolffe   August 21, 2018

    It’s tempting to look at Donald Trump’s ludicrous desire to buy Greenland – and the Danish spat that followed – as just another sick joke of the Trump presidency: an aberration that the world will forget with tomorrow’s distracting tweets on some other outrage.

    But after two and half years of this corrosive nonsense, it’s time to admit some unpleasant truths. The madness of Donald Trump is getting worse, not better. The presidency has not normalized him, it has only normalized our numbed reaction to his excesses. We cannot see through the fog of disinformation and distraction how much of the world’s instability is directly linked to his abject failure as a president.

    Greenland didn’t just bubble into Trump’s mind randomly – it’s very much on Russia’s radar for its unknown supply of oil, gas and rare metals …

    Well that wasn’t quite as illuminating as I was hoping – but it was informative.

    We do know Trump doesn’t have any actually original thinking skills (though yes, he does have good instincts for bullying and predatory manipulation of people) going on within his little gray cells.  It’s TV watching and repeating what he’s been told by smarter, though equally malicious voices who have his ear.

    Putin is at the top of Trump’s Hero’s list, T has made that plain plenty of times.  So it turns out Putin would love to see Greenland for sale for the newly exposed resources – now Putin is a thinker and manipulator.    Hmmm.

    Is this the rationale of a 5 year old???

    The rightwing don’t see climate change as a crisis. They see it as an opportunity.

     

    Morons like you don’t seem to be able to grasp this.
