    Vladimir Putin is a big sissy. I could kick his ass all up and down the mall. It is good for the grass, Green and lush. Vladimirivich and I have been operating in Yakima (Yakama) since 1975. We Jews are going to rid the world of the Romans, the Nazis, the British Bankers. We will put them back on their island, and then we will go right ahead and nuke them.


  • I expect he probably is.

    I like Putin. He is so serious. I think he is kind of cute.

    We will see more of this just as we did when we called it the Soviet Union. Now that they have plenty of money; more than America, they have big plans for us.
    Putin was an agent of the KGB if anyone remembers and certainly has blood of many on his hands.
