Some have dreams to make a million, some have dreams to climb a mountain, some have dreams to sail across oceans, me, I have but one dream–to make the blacklist of the Russian government for being a website that encourages extremist ideas! When I was twenty eight I made the black list of Senator Joseph McCarthy for being a “communist” who spread bad ideas to my high school students. Thus, I was not allowed to get a teaching job in the state of California and had to flee east to New York. So, being on a black list is an honor for this dude. Imagine my surprise discovering there is a new black list in Russia. President Vladimir Putin established a new black list for websites that encourage “extremist ideas.” That certainly fits me. According to the new law if you donate money, post articles, or express support for “extremist views” then a fine or prison sentence awaits you in Russia.
My question is: how does one get on the list? I do try my best to describe Putin as a pussy who poses as a real man. He is ignorant, stupid, a criminal, a violator of human rights, a man who can boast of beating up three women while posing in pictures of shooting a defenseless animal. So, Vladimir, send me to jail. I lived to see Joe McCarthy drink himself to death, so how will you wind up dead?
