Bush – Putin revisited

You know, I never did hear a fairly obvious observation when Vladimir Putin came for a visit with the Bushes, our current president and his parents, last week.

It is a meeting of the CIA and the KGB.

And there is something akin to post Civil War get-togethers with Union and Confederate generals, something that some cynical figures (Frederick Douglas) looked askew at and saw something amiss.

Oh, sure, George Wallace Bush was there too. But he would be the equivalent of the child who just graduated from the kids’ card-table and now has the opportunity to listen in to the grown-ups…

… the KGB and the CIA.

Actually, for an interesting observation of American standing in the world and what it is motivated to do. During his presidency, Jimmy Carter visited Poland, talked with Polish leaders, and then made the cursory press conference where his words on wanting to “learn about the Poles’ desire for freedom” was misinterpreted to wanting to learn about their “Carnal Lust”.  Bush can’t even really attempt that soft-sell of demanding to learn about the peoples of different nations’ carnal lust these days.  The Chinese included, the Russians included. Too many market openings.  (Meanwhile, we do the Hard Sell to learn about people’s Carnal Lust in, say, Iraq.)

    Why I Hate Russia
    by Joel Phillips (publisher, http://www.religiousfreeomwatch.org; owner American Coast Title http://www.actfortitle.com and proud to be an American and a Scientologist)

    When I was a kid we used to jump under our desks and hide when they rang the air alarm. The teachers said this was in case the Russians came and bombed us.

    Well you know what they bombed us and did a good job of it. They have us doing whatever they say.

    First of all they are leaders in religious persecution. They closed down the Scientology Center in Saint Petersburg. Now I suppose the fact that the city used to be called Leningrad tells you something. What other country closes down a church?

    But they are hypocrites. They have their own church namely the Russian Orthodox Church. This church is controlled by the Russian government. This is not how you get religious freedom!

    Second they are sneaky. My website and company have been attacked by Indonesians. I have listed details on my website including those for a substantial reward.

    So what happens? Well it turns out the Russians protect their Internet. It turns out my company which is the sponsor of the http://www.religiousfreedomwatch.org site is being sued by OOO TRANSTELEKOM. This OOO is apparently like the AOL or Earthlink of Russia but under the control of the Russian government. They are suing because an IP address used by one of these Indonesians is their IP address and I posted it to show how I was being harassed.

    They are suing for millions of dollars and they are demanding an apology. I have had to meet with Frank Berriz and Linda Blood about it as they are the other owners of American Coast Title and they are named in the lawsuit.

    But they are even sneakier as they are also complaining to Stewart Title who are our underwriters. This could quite literally get us shut down all because I go through life according to my religion.

    And, it gets worse. Some Russian radio station has sent press releases to my competitors telling them about this. I don’t even get my day in court with OOO and the Russians have already decided I lost.

    But the real trick is they are hiding behind the Olympics. OOO is suddenly the official Internet of the Olympics. OOO says this somehow libels the Olympics.

    Maybe countries that value religious freedom should boycott the Russian Olympics again. That will teach them a lesson.

    So that’s it. I hate Russia. The teachers way back when were right they had us hide from the Russians. Maybe we should of kept doing that. It is clear the Russians are just going to walk all over us. They are going take away our religious freedom and who knows what they will do after that.
