Russia Social Network Says Authorities Request Ukraine User Data

VKontakte, Russia’s largest social network, said it declined a request by the country’s security agency to hand over data on Ukrainian users who supported the recent government change in Kiev.The company declined to give data about the users to the Russian Federal Security Service, a successor to the Soviet-era KGB, upon its request in December, VKontakte Chief Executive Officer Pavel Durov said on his VKontakte page last night.“Our answer was flat denial, Russian jurisdiction doesn’t cover Ukrainian users of VKontakte,” Durov said on his page, where he also posted a picture of a dog dressed in a hoodie. “Disclosure of their personal data to Russian authorities would’ve breached the law and betrayed millions of Ukrainians who trusted us.”

I hope these people remain safe.

an observation regarding the recent Vlad and Eddie Show

Given how awkwardly propagandistic RTs "coverage" of the Russia/Ukrain situation, the Russian are not very sophisticated at propagandizing westerners. Sure a few naive souls fall for it, but it really isn't very subtle. So I have to thiink that even Snowden knows he humiliated himself for Putin but he has no choice but to go along. It must suck to be him right now.

Pro-Russian militants killed in clash at base in eastern Ukraine port city

After a “short battle,” Ukrainian commandos and counterintelligence units fanned out into the city by ground and helicopter in an operation to round up militants, Avakov said. He said 63 separatists have been detained in the operation, which he described as ongoing. Avakov reported no causalities among Ukrainian forces.

Obama has been one

badass president. He has let me down, he has encouraged me beyond belief. But he has used the executive branch of our government to do things I never would have thought possible during the darkest days of GWB. And his signature legislative acomplishment is already making a difference in the lives of people I love.

And I break my Lenten DU abstintion (again).!

Just finished my first precinct door to door canvassing for Wendy Davis

This round concentrated on Democrats to recruit volunteers for the larger block walks and phone banks that are coming soon. People were very encouraged to see that Wendy is this organized this early and taking the fight to the enemy and excited about being part of it.

Disclaimer - I gave up posting for Lent but couldn't wait to share some encouraging news.

Also Texas Dems: please share this on facebook. It even has some of my repub friend pissed at Abbott.

LGBT Rights are Universal Human Rights

They are not an afterthought. They are not a sidebar. They are not whatever. They are not "etc." It may be inconvenient and it may be uncomfortable. But get used to it.

Good Night,

Etc. Arely

Putin is a Right Wing Fascist Thug

Anybody who thinks this guy is some kind of liberal or in anyway of the Left is seriously delusional. He locks up his opposition, oppresses LGBT Russians, invades his neighbors, shuts down all the internet sites that disagree with him and is loved by Franklin Graham of all people.

If you support this guy you need to stop calling yourself a liberal, because you are not. And you are making an ass out of yourself for all eternity.
