    YES! Thank you normalfreak2! I love the daily show. It`s about the only show I miss from my TV days.

    This clip is just perfect. Everyone love to argue politics and be blind to the truth. Well here is the truth people, and boy is it funny!

    and yet Russia continues to have dramtic economic problems, the highest wealth inequality in the world and some of the highest corruption anywhere in the developed world...hmmm you mean far right wing policies don`t work...you would think we would have seen that here in the US if it were true when say Bush was in power...oh wait.

    It`s a pretty good assessment and a good solution. We can send all the Amurican conservatives to Siberia.

    Don`t get me wrong, I don`t like your liberals either, but they are necessary to counterbalance your right wing nutbags.

    That`s pretty funny. To be fair though, Russia`s economic woes have far more to do with their #140 rank in Economic Freedom than fiscal constraint and flat-tax rate.

    I will never understand how people can form opinions on places they have never lived base upon ONE news story. That is akin to deciding what the U.S. is like by interviewing ME. JMIO

    Russia`s economic policy is State Capitalism. Keynesian economics. Major government involvement in the economy. All that jazz. There is practically no economic freedom in Russia. The government chases all the capital away because the owners of the capital are afraid of the government, which is highly reactionary and unpredictable.

    So you have pretty much all the factors that are against what every barometer would actually consider to be a "free economy".

    Don`t make stuff up. You`re going to have a bad time.

    Kind of like the Attenborough video explaining Curling the other day only playing in the EU but not the US.
