Aug. 11th, 2008 @ 02:13 pm Georgia!!!
Hi, this video is directed to an American public and the rest of civilized Western world. I am a Russian citizen, I live in United States for a long time, for over 10 years. I happened to be in Russia now and I caught all this "action" that's taking place in South Ossetia, a region in Georgia. I never posted on youtube, but I couldn't hold myself from doing it now. I had to do this.
My message to American public is meant as a wake up call. American and other Western media especially CNN is feeding you complete horse shit! Russia did not invade and did not attack Georgia. It was a response to a horrible war crime committed by Georgian president Mikhail Saakashvili, this irresponsible man who just can't stand Russia, hates us, and will kiss America's and Europe's ass just to get a chance to join NATO and European Union. America has always supported Georgian "democracy" and I suspect actually that it was America who instigated Georgia to commit this crime.... on the first day of Olympics! How ironic is that? But please don't take this allegation too close heartedly, my point is not about whether or not U.S. government had any role in this, my point is to give you truth about what really happened Thursday night

So again, Russia did not invade or attack Georgia, as your media outlets are saying.

A brief geography and history lesson. South Ossetia is a very small region about 40 miles by 40 miles in the northern Georgia. It's population is around 70000 people. It borders with Russia. Today, many of the residents of South Ossetia are Russian citizens holding Russian passports, it's our people. South Ossetia had claimed independence from Georgia in 1992. Obviously it was never recognized by any international organizations. In 2006, they held an election where 99% of the voters supported independence from Georgia, and the turn out rate was 95%, it was monitored by a team of 34 international observers from the West. It still was not recognized by the world. As an analogy I would like to bring Kosovo situation, Serbian region in the south that was illegally snatched from Serbia and made into an independent country. Please look it up on Wikipedia and see how similar this situation is. How ironic is that America never supported Southern Ossetia same way it supported Kosovo. Obviously, it was made to show Russia how unfriendly the rest of the world is towards us.

Thursday night, Georgian military started an attack against South Ossetia. It was yesterday. They shelled the main city of Tshinkvali. They killed over a 1000 people. The excuse was to "restore the constitutional order in the region". BULLSHIT! This attack was an attempt to commit "ethnic cleansing", it was an act of genocide. They shelled civilian houses, schools, hospitals, without any warning. They also captured several villages near Tshinkvali. Reports say that they attempt to kill anyone of the Ossetian nationality. It was a pure act of Genocide. Wake up!

Russia couldn't watch this atrocity happening to its own citizens. We had no choice but to bring in our military into the region and protect our people. Whatever happens next the world needs to know, that the cause of this conflict is Georgia and its president. Before you accept what your media tells you, before you get fired up by McCains irresponsible allegations and comments, try remember all the lies that American media had always fed you, try to read news from other media outlets, not russian, but other parts of the world, other than U.S. or U.K.'s media.

America needs to wake up and stop doing what it's doing. Stop seeing an enemy in Russia. Stop using countries like Georgia, Ukraine, Poland, Latvia, Estonia who are basically acting like prostitutes of U.S. government in their public acts of hatred towards Russia.

And finally need to say, Mr. SSHAshvili that's how we like to call him. S.SH.A stands for U.S.A in Russian. Mr. SSHAshvili will pay for what happened yesterday.

07.08.2008 at 22:00 Georgia has attacked South Ossetia. At 3:30 08.08.2008 tanks of the Georgian armies have entered into city Tskhinvali. Artillery bombardment all the day long proceeded, fights with use of tanks and heavy combat material, both against ossetic armies, and against peace inhabitants were conducted. 1400 civil people already were lost. The Russian peacemakers have arrived to South Ossetia in the evening 08.08.2008 for settlement of the conflict and prompting of the world in republic and protection of the Russian citizens living on territory of South Ossetia. Georgia has attacked South Ossetia on eve of Olympiad, it is top of cruelty and cynicism.

- It is necessary to remember that the person who has appealed for help is already not able to protect himself. He is really sick since he is being influenced with PG aiming affecting the central nervous system of a human being. Any actions which require to be considered carefully cost him much efforts including the very conversation with the Human-Rights defender. Because of that he needs to be treated with great solicitude. It is necessary at once to let him understand that now he is not alone in his situation, that he is sure to be protected and to persuade him that it is true.
However, the Human-Rights defender has to remember that as soon as he has gone deeply into the person's position, considered it carefully, and is going to protect him, ”heCollapse )

Spread a rumor that perhaps McCain was brainwashed when he was a POW and he might snap as President...

May. 28th, 2008 @ 10:58 pm Bush in SLC- Protest time!!

    
     

President Bush and John McCain were in town today raising money for the McCain campaign.  
I attended a "High Road for Human Rights" anti-war rally in protest to the visit.  http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.php?az=view_all&address=389x3354711

(Above are a few of the funny signs I saw there)

It was incredible.  So inspiring.


This was the stage where the protest was held.  The brunette with the bangs is Kathy Snyder who spoke.  Her son was killed in Iraq last year.


Rocky Anderson was there.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rocky_Anderson
I actually spoke with him for a few minutes!  he is a wonderful, intelligent, and personable man.  It was an honor to meet him in person.

There were three other speakers besides Rocky.

Dan Ellsberg http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Daniel_Ellsberg
Marshall Thompson  http://www.asoldierspeace.com/reviews.html
Kathy Snyder http://www.sltrib.com/News/ci_9361322

I could go on and on.  It was a great experience.

Jun. 5th, 2008 @ 12:50 am Sicko By Michael Moore

All my life I had wanted to go to America. All my life I had listed it in the top 10 - to visit, to see, to touch, to feel. It didn’t even matter to me which part of America, as long as it was on the coast. When I was growing up, America was something like Mars - as unavailable and undesirable to live in, but still as attractive travel-wise.

I had never admired America the way everybody who likes adventure literature admires Australia. Yet the Indians (the Mohican!) , the treasure hunts, the Scarlett O’Hara story - all of that kept it very high up my wish list.

I had a great time in all four states I visited. I know it was very touristy, yet I wanted it to be touristy to the point of being tacky, so I didn’t mind much. Crabs at Pier 39 in San Francisco, humble gambling in Vegas, a Broadway show in New York (the horses in Central Park unfortunately didn’t happen, too damn cold).

Nice country, I thought, - probably even great for retirement. Until I saw Sicko. Bloody hell! America, being one of the vastest, richest and certainly the loudest countries on the planet cannot provide proper medical care for its citizens.

I know they say we are spoilt here in New Zealand. The more I travel the more I realise how great this country is, and how lucky we are to have the freshest seafood cheaply (relatively, yes) and breathtaking scenery in any given point of the country, and two-day travel time to keep all buggers out. But I still thought America was full of life, very open-minded, very consumer-oriented, yet very demanding and very “you have to have”-oriented.

In New Zealand, where they copied the British system of medical care and social welfare, essentially everything is free. You get free emergency care and the proper follow-up; free maternity care and paid leave up to 6 months; free assistance in giving up smoking; free surgery; free gyms for the obese and so on. The system works very simply: if you are unhappy with the public wait, get an insurance and get operated on in a private way. If you do not want to get the insurance - oh well, the government is here to look after you.

Things are different in America. 1. You have to have insurance. 1A. For that, you have to be insurable. 1B. You have to be able to afford health insurance, as it is quite pricey. 3. You have to be lucky enough not to have your health insurance cancelled, if your health gets worse. 4. You cannot choose your doctor, as you get one allocated. 5. If you do have insurance and things get sour, they must not turn sour enough for your insurance to cover only some of the costs. And there is probably 6, 7, 8 and so on in finest print.

I have no idea how Americans put up with that. With their budgeting, with their military power, with their absolute potential, they get such poor health treatment. I know France is a resourceful country, but look at Cuba! They manage to provide free health care. I imagine Canada can somehow survive by just collecting taxes, not fees. I just feel very grateful that I do not have to live there - despite of all my American dreams. And I will make sure I have a thick travel insurance next time I am over in the States. Because there is no other way.

Oh my goodness. I just watched the most truthful thing I have ever seen in my life. I decided to post this here because I think that this community would agree with me when they watch it and see how much it really makes you think. I am sorry if this has already been posted, but I work alot, have kids, and go to school so I am not on here much.

Okay if you have 2 hours to watch a movie then watch this

http://www.zeitgeistmovie.com/

seriously the bush administration and the nazi regime are like one in the same. The famous quote that he said regarding terrorists.... he stole directly out of Hitler's mouth. Watch this movie and open you eyes. It has been banned from YouTube for being "unpatriotic" seriously if you think about it I have never seen anything more truthful in my life and it is all backed up with FACT.
