<quoted text>You're not a Russian expert. "It is not an easy thing to quantify, much less to prove. But among intellectuals and advocates of a democratic Russia in the Western mode, a gnawing concern is arising that the relative freedom from state surveillance and restriction that citizens have relished in the last decade may be drawing to a close.
Supplanting it is a resurgent government obsession with internal security and threats from abroad -- a phenomenon that they say has set off a limited but growing crackdown on supposed challenges to the state."

Sounds like Russia is imitating the US in suppressing dissent.

Galt despises scumbags like you who alter Galt's original post.

Clean up your act.

<quoted text> It would be nice if Edward Snowden returned , but he's looking more like a glamor hound like Julien Assange( Assange is advising Snowden on what country that he should request asylum.) In the meantime, President Obama is going forward on an open public discussion of the NSA secrecy revelations. Obama has met with the Privacy and Civil Liberties Oversight Watchdog Committee(It's the same committee that republicans have tried to block by refusing to confirm appointments to it)
Wonder if he will end up in Cuba.
If the republicans will in 2016 may be fun to watch right wing continue to whine, moan and groan all day long.

You people are really in love with Russians now, aren't you?

You love Putin....

You love his so much one would suspect you're a fifth column.

"

State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman would like you to believe that, after layer upon layer of post-financial crisis reforms, the banking sector is still an out-of-control mess and the average citizen is in desperate need of a crusader like himself to keep these legions of bad guys under control.

The absurdity of the argument only lends credibility to the claim being advanced by some people on Wall Street, and increasingly in Washington, that Schneiderman should be investigated, for leading possibly the most politicized law-enforcement outfit in the country.
Double standard: Attorney General Eric Schneiderman continues a weak case against righty Hank Greenberg, but ignores lefty Jon Corzine.

Double standard: Attorney General Eric Schneiderman continues a weak case against righty Hank Greenberg, but ignores lefty Jon Corzine.

Sources say the “investigate Schneiderman” movement is gaining traction among congressional Republicans, particularly in the House Financial Services Committee. One obvious reason: Schneiderman, a Democrat, seems to spare no expense in attacking critics of President Obama but hasn’t lifted an investigative finger when it comes to the sleaze involving fat cats in his own party."

<quoted text> I can't list all of Barack Obama's accomplishments as a U.S. Senator ,but here's a few important ones. Read the entire article . "Don't be a dummy. When your smart-ass conservative friend asks you to name a bill that Obama helped write or get passed, here's a pretty big list to choose from."..."The Secure America and Orderly Immigration Act
Introduced by Sen. John McCain in May 2005, and cosponsored by Sen. Edward Kennedy. Barack Obama added three amendments to this bill.
While the bill was never voted on in the Senate, the Comprehensive Immigration Reform Acts of 2006 and 2007, respectively, drew heavily upon the wording of this bill." ..."The Lugar-Obama Cooperative Threat Reduction.
Introduced by Sen. Barack Obama, Sen. Dick Lugar and Sen. Tom Coburn.
First introduced in November 2005 and enacted in 2007, this bill expanded upon the successful Nunn-Lugar threat reduction, which helped secure weapons of mass destruction and related infrastructure in former Soviet Union states." ... "Federal Funding Accountability and Transparency Act of 2006
This act of Congress, introduced by Senators Obama and Coburn, required the full disclosure of all entities or organizations receiving federal funds in FY2007."... Honest Leadership and Open Government Act
In the first month of the 110th Congress, Obama worked with Sen. Russ Feingold to pass this law, which amends and strengthens the Lobbying Disclosure Act of 1995.
Specificially, the changes made by Obama and Feingold requires public disclosure of lobbying activity and funding, places more restrictions on gifts for members of Congress and their staff, and provides for mandatory disclosure of earmarks in expenditure bills.
The House passed the bill, 411-8, on July 31. The Senate approved it, 83-14, on Aug. 2. At the time, Obama called it "the most sweeping ethics reform since Watergate." http://www.dailykos.com/story/2008/07/07/5478...

Putin is a KGB bad guy, but with respect to Islamic terrorists, Putin recognizes the danger, while Obama supports his Islamic buddies.

Otherwise, not much difference between the two.
