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."

    Are you talking about me? You just broke the 9th Commandment. It's not very nice to cast aspersions, Mary, especially since I didn't do anything to warrant your lies.
    People see it for what it is, I should hope. And no, I post in blue, Mary. I don't know how to switch comors. And I have every right to defend myself against lies, dear.

      Yes. It is June 10th; this was posted June 7th. One reason I have found other places to express my thoughts. Perhaps this is the intention?

      Good morning to you too @ saywhat. I believe Rand Paul has solution in cutting off one of many of the Builderburgs' tentacle. "Rand Paul is saying that he’s going to likely sue the federal government over the Obama-sanctioned theft of our emails, Facebook messages, search histories, credit card information, and more. His goal is to unite internet companies, individuals, and organizations in one massive class-action lawsuit against the feds with millions of Americans standing up."

    Indeed this surveillance stems from Patriot Act and has been expanded.

      Yes, @saywhat. And Congress knew full well what it was they voted to extend; pleading ignorance now is disingenuous, but par for the course. It is, however, all with the scope of the PA.

      Why would they when it's clear that all information gets funneled thru the US. Let me also say that with this Country fast approaching a "turn key tyranny" You'll have the right to remain stupid, everything you do not know, can and will be used against you. Most likely for profit. Good day to you to saywhat.
