Putin announces split with wife

Vladimir Putin's nearly 30-year marriage has ended, the Russian president and his wife told state-run television in a joint interview.

"This was our joint decision. Our marriage is over," Putin told Russia 24, standing next to Lyudmila Putin, in an interview shown Thursday. "We almost don't see each other. We have different lives."

    Also a conspiracy theory is being floated by 'authorties "China is behind all this".I'm sure @Bombo inadvertently called the bloggers as "conspiracy theorists".

    A few things to remember about NSA/ Prism:

    – Although NSA's mandate is international comms, it was expanded with the Patriot Act, in part due to lack of information sharing between agencies and a culture of each agency only looking after their own mandate.
    – Notwithstanding the Patriot Act, the internet is by its nature international. It matters not where the server is physically located, or who the individuals are that are posting comments.
    – If you post a comment on a website or social media site, it is public, not private. If you want to have a private conversation with someone, have it offline.

    CNN is letting this blog die. Should we all just move over to the Political Ticker or Marquee Blog? George Patton is at the Political Ticker. We can have fun with him.

      I can never get posted on Politcal Ticker. I guess I don't know the secret password. And George Patton is always here, too. Just not under that particular name.

    Joke # 1
    A teacher is droning away in the classroom when he notices a student sleeping way up in the back row. The teacher shouts to the sleeping student's neighbor, "Hey wake that student up!"
    The neighbor yells back, "You put him to sleep, you wake him up!"

    Jack's mother ran into the bedroom when she heard him scream and found his two-year old sister pulling his hair. She gently released the little girl's grip and said comfortingly to Jack, "There, there. She didn't mean it. She doesn't know that hurts."

    She was barely out of the room when the little girl screamed. Rushing back in, she asked, "What happened?"

    "She knows now," Jack replied.

      @banasy. I find it rather disturbing to come on line and find out that somebody has stolen my name. This juvenile behavior is unaccepable. Just to let you know, you *were* communicating with my troll.
      Just be aware.
      Thank you mam.

      What I find most disturbing is that after all this time, the function of the reply button still escapes you.
