Free Pussy Riot!

Standard

I did a Google search to find this pic. Believe me if you Google the words FREE and PUSSY, you find some very interesting stuff, much of it has nothing to do with an all girl punk rock band on trial in Russia, but still.  So as I’m sure you heard today,  a court in Moscow sentenced the three members of the feminist punk band Pussy Riot to two years in prison for criminal “hooliganism”.  Their crime?  Performing what they call a “punk prayer” in the Russian Orthodox Christ the Savior Cathedral in Moscow that criticized President Vladimir Putin. A performance that reportedly lasted about a minute before they were and I quote “forcibly removed “. Freaking Commie Bastards. Sure it sounds like the kind of juvenile stunt you and your friends would pull back in high school but still the sentence is way harsh. Two years in the gulag? Makes you thankful to live in the Good Ol’ U.S.A. where at least some of our rights are still protected by the Constitution. Don’t let those Commie Bastards win.

p.s. Did you notice all the press coverage focused on the one member of Pussy Riot that was kind of hot? Here she is wearing a t-shirt bearing the words ¡No Pasarán! a famous communist slogan dating back to the Spanish Civil War. ¡No Pasarán!  “They Shall Not Pass” …I don’t get it either. Well now every kid in the free world wants one. And as we all know in a free market economy, the market is driven by consumer demand. Available now in all sizes and three different colors get your  ¡No Pasarán! t-shirt while it’s hot.
