Oh my god. Shut up you US-centric sheep! Russia might be fascist but compared to the clusterfuck that is your government they would make any freedom loving citizen cry tears of joy.
Atleast Putin and his crooks don't fly planes in to their own buildings, spread false propaganda and systematically lie to start wars, claim to "save" the people in their occupied countires yet have no problem showering civilians with depleated uranium and white phosphors utimalty causing death and deformity among thousands of children and women, claim to build up their occupied countrys only to proceed and bomb them back to the middle ages. Ugh I could go on and one. The worst is that you really are brain
washed enough to believe you really make a difference when you vote. Is the choice between a rock and a hard place really a chocie? Same shit different colour, literally.
That tin hat you're wearing looks absolutely divine on you, R2.
Because life in the former Soviet Union is so much better than here in America.
R2 is a complete nut.
I would rather live in a chaotic, corrupt country than in a country that causes chaos and corruption to any other country it can sink it greedy oil-dreched claws into.
r3 Soviet union this, soviet union that. Why don't you go ask the 40 million living under the poverty line in your United $uck everyone else dry about how living in a capitalist Ayn Rand Utopia is better than living in a marxist one?
If you think life in the US is as bad or worse than it is in Putin's Russia, you're seriously deluded. Putin's government is rounding up tourists who are gay.
r7 I understand it's horrible for us but overall I wouldn't wan't to associate with the U.S. There is a reason your country is one of the most hated in the world. I didn't say Russia was anywhere near a good country but for an American to have the nerve to get up on your high military tank and start pointing fingers is disturbing and so out of touh with reality.
It's a thugocracy, run by criminal syndicates.
Where is Rich Russian Lady???
I like how R8 types the words "so out of touch with reality" sans irony.
Any sensible person would prefer living in the United States to living in Russia right now. Just deal with it, you ranting, raving, boring asshole.
"Why don't you go ask the 40 million living under the poverty line in your United $uck."
Why don't you go ask the 60 million Russians who live in abject poverty since the demise of the cradle-to-the-grave socialism of the former Soviet Union faded away. Why don't you ask one the many millions of Russian alcoholics why they have one of the highest rates of alcoholism in the known world. Why don't you ask millions of Russian men why their life expectancy is one of the lowest in the civilized world?
You are truly an asshole of epic proportions.
Thank you R12.
r12 The difference is that Russia and russians know their country is shit, I think they are shit and no one is trying to claim otherwise. What is getting on my nerve is that Americans instead of discussing at a level of "Look Russia might be a country to rivel us when it comes to world's worst super power" You are talking as if you were a scandinavian country. And yes, you are out of touch with reality. The only people that still think highly of the U.S are materialistic thrash that hope to land a spot on their own version of Jersey shore or who idolize the Kuntashians.
Yes, I'd love to move to Russia, where I will be beaten in the streets for being gay and then get arrested.
R14 lives in a cave with a really swell timewarp inside - way in the back.
R14 needs to change her tampon.
Trolldar r2. Are Datalounge's servers hosted in Russia like Livejournal's are?
I was walking down the street holding my lovers hand- in the midwest- in broad daylight and people smiled at us.
Can't do that in Russia.
Edward Snowden is a datalounger? Poor thing, he should have chosen Venezuela and taken his chances with the transit.
I presume this is because it is summer and he doesn't realize what Russian winter is like.
But seriously, why does the Russian Government like to shut down Livejournal every now and then?
There was a phase last year where they were getting -what is it when there kind of overwhelmed with ip requests or whatever— like every three months.
No, r20, but his neck mole is.
I have waited on so many different tourists from all over the world and the Russians are thee most nastiest people I have ever met!!
BTW, the Russian bitching about America, you got a lot of nerve! We have the Russian mafia in America. Also, there are a lot of Russians in America who drive around in Rolls Royces, etc. and they collect welfare!
Over the past few months, Russian lawmakers have made that nation increasingly hostile to homosexuals. In June, for example, Czar President Vladimir Putin signed a law banning "gay propaganda," which not only prohibits gay pride marches but potentially sends people to prison for explaining homosexuality to children.
That same month, Putin signed yet another law allowing police to jail tourists who are believed to be homosexuals. And in July, Stalin Putin signed a law that bans gay couples, among other constituencies, from adopting Russian children.
BuzzFeed has a powerful series of photos starkly showing the state-sanctioned violence gay people routinely face there.
The Libertarian troll deserves the epic vicious face slapping to end all vicious face slappings.
"I have waited on so many different tourists from all over the world and the Russians are thee most nastiest people I have ever met!!"
I have met so many stupid and nasty americans
For example, in this thred americans so stuoid that they don't want listen the truth (US kill people all over the world and call this "war", thats not war, thats murder), you don"t want to understand thats someone have different opinion/
And if you are so loyal to gay why there so many thred about closet gay, showmance? Why actors can't be open gay? Becouse so loyal to gay american are close minded assholes i think.
I live in Russia nad have never been beaten for being gay
But i prefer to live in US where i should find a beard if i want to be an actor, becouse gay can't be actor

Speaking of being out of touch with reality, it's so refreshing to see that Americans aren't the only ones who are so unidimensional in their thinking. Thanks for that demonstration, R8.
[quote]I live in Russia nad have never been beaten for being gay
Give it time.
Yes. And Snowden is a homophobe and should be executed for his support of Russian homophobic state!
r29- how do you feel about those who ARE beaten? Hmmmm?
Do you just bury your head and assume they deserved it somehow?
Perhaps you assume it could NEVER happen to you because YOU know how to behave. Let me guess you're "straight -acting" and could never be detected???
Does it even fucking bother you that you can't live freely or do you think that you don't deserver the same freedom as say- your mother and father- or your straight friends who can fall in love, go to the park and lie together holding hands on a blanket.
Have you told yourself you don't deserve that? You're not worthy of that kind of happiness?
The subject is about Russia.
Why the fuck do we have to compare countries at all.
Apple to fucking Oranges.
We're talking about Oranges fuckers. Rotten bitter poisone oranges.
Save the fucking apples for another thread— maybe one of the hundreds that complain about U.S. politics on this site.
Quit derailing and quit with the false equivalency.
I know it sounds small, but there is an internet move to BOYCOTT RUSSIAN VODKA. Now I know it sounds silly but, realistically, the US is not going to boycott the games. Hitting their business economy where it counts might get the rich and powerful people to rethink the effect of their anti-gay decision.
Realize, they probably have no idea that there is a gay economy around the world. It's their national product worth billions of dollars and since better vodka is made in other countries all over the world, its easy for even our straight friends to join in without missing a drink.
R2/5/6/8/14, please tell us about the wonderful, honorable, patriotism-free utopian land of freedom, peace, equality, and abundance that you are from. Should we all start packing up to move there?
As a nation, we didn't boycott the Berlin Olympics in 1936. We did send some minorities to beat the Nazis, though.
[quote]Same shit different colour, [bold]literally.[/bold]
A hackneyed metaphor, followed by the word "literally". So you think metaphors are "literal", and that Americans and Russians poop different colors. Is that it? Because that's the "literal" meaning of your words.
You really are flamingly stupid, R2.
Russia is one of the worst countries on the face of the planet. The government is poisoning/murdering journalists. People are being tortured. The Skinheads are on the loose. Homosexuality is outlawed. The pro-Russia freak is a certified nut job.

What's "oh, dear" in Russian?
