Re: Lying Sack of Trump

How is Putin the model?

One of the first things which Putin did after coming to power was to force the issue by law that any ISP should carry a black box. We now know that those were metadata collection probes.

Faux and other media monkeys howled their ass off and flung poo in his general direction for months for that one.

It is funny that what he did is exactly what our guys went on to do. The sole difference is that he put it in law and regulations.

So Putin is indeed the model. He is the model not just in USA. Israel is adopting his NGO funding laws to the letter, there are European countries following suit too. At least he is doing it properly - law and regs first, action later. Not the other way around and then filing a gigantic Communications Data Bill.
