Pussy Riot Urges Congress to Act

Really now, does America need a Russian punk band to shake Congress from its limbo of inaction? Not to forget that one half of the Congress, the Senate has been overrun by the biggest thug Harry Reid and the other half, the House is headed by a very inefficient John Boehner. Americans have regularly given Congress the lowest ratings possible for many years , which the punk band Pussy Riot was probably not aware of; thus their innocent desire to have Congress act on their concerns about what was happening to Russia under Putin. Contrary to Pussy Riots’s beliefs, Putin is perhaps more popular than America’s Congress or even its President!

AP reports: Two members of the Russian dissident punk group Pussy Riot came to the Capitol Tuesday and asked members of Congress to add 16 officials to the list of Russian human rights violators who face U.S. sanctions. Before a throng of cameras and reporters, the women, Nadezhda Tolokonnikova and Maria Alekhina said Russian President Vladimir Putin’s crackdown on human rights was damaging that country. “Putin is not leading Russia to stability, but to complete instability and chaos,” Tolokonnikova said through a translator.

Missing from the translators at the Congress were some American ones who could have said the same thing about Obama damaging this country and also leading it into the depths of economic downfall and societal chaos! Essentially, Americans and Russians could have agreed for once on the nature of destruction being the bedrock of society in both countries! So far, in a show of complete buffoonery aka foreign policy, Obama has exhibited with scary regularity, zero understanding of foreign leaders like Vladimir Putin and Islamic leadership who have been spinning every day of their lives for an eternity now.

In fact, America’s only ally Israel has been on the chopping block of America’s lop-sided foreign policies in the Middle East which incidentally is a substantial part of the world and extremely troublesome as well. John Kerry should have resigned over his recent comment of apartheid and Israel but like the rest of Obama administration, Kerry didn’t think he needed to pack his bags.

AP further reported, “Currently, 18 Russians are on a public list of people facing sanctions while an unknown number of others are on a confidential list. The 16 people the women of Pussy Riot want sanctioned include Vladimir Kolokoltsev, Russia’s interior minister. Also on the list were officials involved in prosecuting and trying people who participated in a large Moscow rally in May 2012 and officials at the prisons where Tolokonnikova and Alekhina were incarcerated.” Perhaps, Putin could have thrown in a word or a punch from Moscow to resolve Pussy Riot’s brazen complaining to America. If only Pussy Riot had listened to him, Putin could have warned these punks how ineffectual American Congress was and how Obama was riding whatever was left of it. Pussy Riot should have tried the Chinese for help instead!
