Weekend Chillout - From Russia With Love

With Russia granting asylum to Edward Snowden this week, the old KGB Lieutenant Colonel got to give the finger to his old rivals at the NSA and GCHQ. Given the circumstances of this case, a spy fleeing to Russia, what more appropriate song could we have this week.

From Russia with love, I fly to you
Much wiser since my goodbye to you
I've travelled the world to learn
I must return 
From Russia with love

I've seen places, faces
And smile for a moment
But, oh, you haunted me so
Still, my tongue tied young bride
Would not let my love for you show
In case you'd say "No"

To Russia I flew but there and then
I suddenly knew you'd care again
My running around is through
I'd fly to you
From Russia with love

Keiser Report - KoolAid Bubble Mentality

From RussiaToday

Published on Aug 1, 2013 In this episode of the Keiser Report, Max Keiser and Stacy Herbert drink the KoolAid in order to get into the minds of the cult members climbing the suicidal property ladders in the US and UK. In the second half, Max talks to journalist and author, Dominic Frisby, about the cult of housing and how it is that Margaret Thatcher's Right to Buy scheme inspired the Conservative party to introduce Help to Buy for purely vote buying reasons.

Snowden granted 1yr asylum in Russia


I have been thinking, Russian's love to make a point, Putin in particular. So why give Snowden asylum on 1 August? What because it was Wattle Day, horses birthday, they like Thursdays?

Well it might be this reason:

On 1 August 1914, Russia entered the Great War (WWI) by declaring war on Germany.
99 year anniversary of the start of the Great War, sounds like a fitting day for Putin to show the US the finger.
