I don’t see what the big deal is about human rights violations in Russia. I’m sorry people die unnecessarily anywhere in the world. But when the American government lets special interest play a game with jobs and the countries well being how do they care about human rights? We don’t have cheaper prices with the international trade union we have third world poverty level retail in America going for top dollar.
Then we have crazy young and old men loosing their mind and pride being dumped into poverty with no jobs or futures to prevent it in America. I don’t blame it on president Obama but I do blame the international trade union and the stupid men that coned us into it with the idea of generating good jobs and cheaper prices. Nothing but stinking liars packing their special interest pockets! And we all know what political party is best at that!
The problem isn’t intitlements and tax’s although some adjustments are needed to make things more fare and balanced.The problem is special interest control and greed of natural resources and the international trade union. Trade needs to be cut in half and tarriffs need to be applied. Mass profit from natural resources needs to be taxed and controlled so that ownership and profit by the people is more profitable than the rights to own and harvest it for mass profit.

As far as I can see, there is some good in this bill. It seems to me that it is indeed a very serious problem whenever any dictatorial government develops the habit of murdering its political adversaries. Though the bill may not be perfect, to me it seems that at least it is a start in the right direction.

Maybe Russia should respond condemning America for assasinating our own citizens over seas without a trial. That seems like a human rights violation to me.
