Bernie don't take money from billionairs.

Bernie doesn't need to.  America has Super PACs and dark money in politics so billionaires can support whoever they want without having to disclose.

Do SuperPAC's mature as an investment? If so, ColbertNation has had one for 6 years is it? I'm surprised he's not up to the task or been mentioned a potential.

So I click the link and see an hour-long doc to watch... not having that time for that I Google the creator of the doc and Wiki gives me this "Journalists and political scientists accuse him in particular of relaying conspiratorial authors and Kremlin propaganda ."  

I will say one thing Tungsten, you are consistent.

All I am saying Tung is that your info sources and Russian news media are always in lockstep.  If you are happy to believe that it is just a coincidence or that Russian media is actually very independent and honest, then that is your right, but it seems pretty obvious to me that these sources are either happy to spread Russian disinformation or they are as ignorant as to what they are spreading as you are.  

I won't go as far as to say the Wiki page for the doc maker I looked up was accurate, just that I LOL'ed when I read it, because, of course, he has been accused of parroting Russian propaganda.  CIA?  LOL.

I guess it was totally ignorant of me, but I expected a full-on Russian/Ukrainian accent.

Right.  Nothing to do with his Ukranian looks and name, or his Belarussian partner in crime.

Since I got you here, I am wondering what your thoughts are on Putin dissolving the government so he can change the constitution.  Probably to bolster gay rights and freedom of speech I would imagine?

Well he has a bit of an East Coast US / Jewish and considering he grew up in the US it's not all that surprising. But of course that info comes from the super secret branch of the CIA know as Wikipedia so who knows how reliable it is. I'm more surprised that Maddow is still on the air considering her failure in busting Trump a few years back and her meltdowns on air over the whole thing.
