  1. What I mean is that your opinion about how...

    I don't know what you mean. I think the government agency that received the request should handle it.[/quote]

    What I mean is that your opinion about how government officials usually deal with such...
  2. Have you considered the possibility that your...

    It has been my experience that the outcomes of FOI requests are far more biased towards "deeply redacted/incomplete" than "indiscriminate disclosure". I am a public servant and my lived experience of...
  3. If you read the email that was sent to the...

    They have not cited why it is exempt from disclosure, they've simply asserted it. They have also asserted that there is 'no legitimate interest' in the information the person has requested (which is...
  4. A conflict of interest would be some government...

    A conflict of interest would be some government official taking an official action on a subject that affects that official personally. This is the CEO of a vaccine manufacturer saying that a third...
  5. But you already know from the discussion that the...

    Maybe you could justify that point of view with some record or evidence of attacks?[/QUOTE]

    You mean, like from a source of evidence that the ACLU is blocking?[/QUOTE]

    But you already know from...

    One of the turds was certainly his campaign manager. Manafort's buddy, Kilimnik, is one of the individuals being sanctioned.

  7. Biden expels Russian diplomats and imposes sanctions

    Vladimir Putin no longer has a friend in the White House. He got away with four years of cyberattacks and meddling in our domestic politics, but now the chickens have come back to roost. There will...

    That is possible, but it is hard to believe that...

    That is possible, but it is hard to believe that this provocative behavior is intended to actually acquire more territory through war. They may be coordinating the use of military intimidation to...
  9. Thank you for filling us in on the detail of your...

    Thank you for filling us in on the detail of your daily exposure to CNN, which is far from the only news network in the US. I'm glad that it fascinates you so much, and I will admit that you expose...
  10. She is just another Kremlin apparatchik, but she...

    No, starting a new war with rebel republics. You see, CNN does not report when Ukrainians do shit, only when Russia reacts to the provocation.
    And since you don't watch anything other than your side...
  11. No, Maria Zakharova is the pro-Kremlin Director...

    No, Maria Zakharova is the pro-Kremlin Director of the Information and Press Department of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation, who has a long record of taking rather extreme...
  12. You have no way of knowing how good my Russian...

    Your russian is not that good.[/quote]

    You have no way of knowing how good my Russian is. I don't claim native fluency, but it is good enough for what we've been discussing.



    Usually, they...
  13. It is possible that the report by pro-Moscow...

    It would have helped if CNN did not try to show Ukrainian tanks in Ukraine as Russian in Russia:

    It is possible that the report by pro-Moscow...
  14. Putin's invasion force on Ukrainian border

    Putin is now amassing an invasion force on the border of Ukraine, although nobody seems to know what his intentions are. He could just be looking for a distraction from sagging popularity ratings,...
  15. You will likely need proof of a negative COVID-19...

    You will likely need proof of a negative COVID-19 test in addition to some proof that you have been vaccinated. Even though it would be fairly easy to fake vaccination, governments will probably...

    I recently finished John Man's The Mongol Empire, which starts with a biography of Ghengis Khan but goes on to lay out the history of the Mongol Empire. The Mongol Empire expanded primarily under...
  17. I admit that that can be a problem at my age, but...

    You are full of sh...yourself.[/QUOTE]

    I admit that that can be a problem at my age, but I do make an effort to get a lot of fiber in my diet. Arguing with you over language issues also helps. ...
  18. I sincerely felt that you sometimes have said...

    That's a lie.[/quote]

    I sincerely felt that you sometimes have said things that aren't made up out of whole cloth, but who am I to contradict you? Would you at least admit that you sometimes...
  19. There are a lot of things you say that you don't...

    There are a lot of things you say that you don't make up out of whole cloth, but you very seldom provide links as references to back up your claims. So it is really hard to distinguish the things...
  20. Barbos, I no longer have a need for you to...

    Barbos, I no longer have a need for you to provide a link. I found the Wikipedia page where you got that from (Balto-Slavic languages). So far, it does appear that the strongest evidence in favor...
  21. Not really. I said that, in the hypothetical...

    Not really. I said that, in the hypothetical case that they couldn't use Russian for any reason, they should use English rather than Estonian. It has been my consistent position that an Estonian...
  22. That humorous video had nothing to do with what...

    That humorous video had nothing to do with what we were discussing, but I guess you felt compelled to put up the appearance of something to say. Nobody disputes that people all over the world...
  23. As with Ukrainian, you don't know anything about...

    As with Ukrainian, you don't know anything about the language and perhaps less about Estonian than Ukrainian. I was in Tallinn over a year ago, and I found it easier to speak English with the locals...
  24. Your reading comprehension skills need a lot of...

    Boy, you ARE something. You really did suggest guest workers from Ukraine to learn estonian, didn't you? :D
    The reason it should surprise or rather amuse you is the fact that both Ukraine and...
  25. Sorry, but you were wrong. I told you why, but...

    Sorry, but you were wrong. I told you why, but perhaps it went over your head.



    Nobody cares. There are bad actors in Russia, Ukraine, and every other country on the planet, but you only ever...
