How long would you say this ship is – how about way more than a football field?

It’s so big it takes half a million bucks worth of petroleum to fill up its tanks.

It’s so big it needs a bar pilot to board to guide it out of San Francisco Bay, yesterday evening. See?

All right, MSM, get up to speed on this recent visit here – just keep reading down.

Who did this guy meet with – corporate and government officials, right? Which ones? Why?

What’s that, what about the Ukraine? Indeed, what about Ukraine?

Hey, speak of the Devil:

Another lawmaker said he had been provided photos of Russian President Vladimir Putin with Andrey Melnichenko, who owns 92 percent of EuroChem’s shares. Putin even made a well-publicized visit to EuroChem’s potash mine in Gremyachinskoye in 2010.”

Hop on it, MSM.

Brace Yourselves: “GLOBAL FREE PUSSY RIOT DAY” is Coming Friday – Protest at Russian Consulate

Thursday, August 16th, 2012

It’s come to this.

The specific whites of Pacific Heights and Cow Hollow aren’t going to like tomorrow’s international protest one bit.

Not one bit!

“GLOBAL FREE PUSSY RIOT DAY - FRIDAY AUGUST 17th – FreePussyRiot.org

The ‘Free Pussy Riot’ protest is a worldwide response to Russian authorities detaining three young women for performing an anti-Putin song in a cathedral in Moscow in February. Maria Alekhina, Nadezhda Tolokonnikova, and Ekaterina Samucevich are the three women and members of Pussy Riot, a feminist collective punk band known for impromptu performances with a political agenda to promote basic rights, gender equality and the lack of justice involving the powers that be.

The global pussy riot campaign is going to be held in major cities around the world this Friday to urge Putin and Russian authorities for a fair hearing for the girls’ sentencing. With support from celebrities such as Madonna and Pete Townshend, and of Amnesty International the pussy riot has become a movement to show support for these three women and more importantly to show Russian authorities their decision will not go unnoticed.

In San Francisco their are two events being held:

At 3:00 PM on Friday supporters will be meeting at the Russian Consulate 2790 Green Street.

“As a musician who has spoken out against political figures, I am deeply troubled that the Russian government is punishing its citizens for voicing their opinions through music. Music is an essential tool for voicing opinions about everything from gender to oppression. To outlaw the free expression of these ideas is to embrace tyranny. Letting artists speak is the hallmark of a free society.”
