    So places like Russia throw a lot of people in jail for semi bullshit things like having drugs like hash oil. Of course, many countries call this a crime, and do not want foreigners having narcotics. So it is this thing called a crime, and when you travel you try not to bring contraband into other countries.

    Now the US has this woman who is really good at throwing a ball through a hoop and bouncing it on the ground while playing a game called basketball. So it seems this woman decided to have some hash oil in her possesion while traveling in russia and they arrested her like many other people. But this bitch is good at bouncing a ball and throwing it through a hoop so the US has to do something about this because I guess we need her to do that a lot while smoking hash oil at home?

    So now the US is pushing a deal to release some guy called the merchant of death, or something like that, in exchange for this woman. This guy sells arms to really bad people who kill others. Of course, so does the US.

    So our president wants to do a prisoner swap so we can get our hash smoking, game playing, woman back from russia. So we are going to release a merchant of death for a basketball player who smokes hash at some really stupid times?

    Can someone explain this shit to me so it makes any kind of sense, except for russia who would probably love to buy some weapons from the merchant of death. Doesn't the US have ;lots of people who are good at bouncing balls and throwing them through hoops? Why is this woman so special we will do anything and everything to get her back? Am I missing something?

    Said basketball player is also openly gay and I have my doubt that she had anything on her to begin with. :|

    I still want to know why it is that Joe and the left wing media want to call this person a political prisoner when we have millions of people in jail for pot over here. If you want to free some worthwhile person who is in prison over a political racist drug war you do not have to go to russia.

    Fucking racist joe Biden could pardon thousands of drug war political prisoners tomorrow here in the states. Many of those people are far more valuable than some greedy fuck who ran away from america because 200k a year to play a god damned game was too little for her.

    I hope this greedy bitch rots and gets raped in a russian gulag for 9 years. I hate greedy sports stars. Fuck any of them who run away from america to some foreign shithole to make more money playing a game.

    Our media is making this twat look like some hero when all she did was break a law to smoke some pot.

    The only thing I hope is Joe does his thing and is just giving this lip service before going back to take a nap. I doubt it because this sort of thing is the performative crap dems live for. They are going to pretend they care about people imprisoned for doing some hash while they continue to imprison people daily here in america. The liberal media is eating this shit up because they can pretend like they care about people imprisoned for decades for smoking a joint while they allow it to constantly happen here in america.

    It pisses me off that this asshole gets so much attention because of a sport while there are actual valuable people here in the US who have their life destroyed over a joint. If imprisoning someone for pot is bad then we can do something about it here instead of yelling at russia and giving them everything they want to free a criminal who would go to jail under US federal law if caught here in the US.

    That's the key right there.
    You and I are a freak minority in that opinion.
    To the rest of the rubes, sports people are religious figures.
    And the news knows it, and plays to it.

    she had it on her and admits to it. It is not about being gay. That is just the excuse she is using.

    She got caught. She admits she had drugs. She knew it was illegal. This is not even america, so we do not even have a say in these laws.

    Seriously, she can play basketball at rec. She can play her fucking game and get some lesbian sex in russian prison. What the fuck do we need this asshole for? We have ploenty6 of gay drug users in america who Joe could free tonight if he actually gave a fuck. Lots of them probably are much more worthwhile to america. This bitch thought russia was so much better because she could not stand to live on 200k for playing a game.

    I think NIN wrote it best with bow down before the one you serve, you're going to get what you deserve. You were a greedy, shitty, basketball player who ran off to russia to play hoops for million dollars. Maybe next time you stay in your home and smoke your legal pot while playing hoops for 200k a year and be thankful.

    I'll gloomily add on to that, if you magically got the populace to stop worshipping sports idols, they're not going to become enlightened, and start reading more books.
    They're gonna start reading books worth of Qanon threads.

    I guess that does work out. Once they lost basketball, baseball, and then football they had much more time to read Q during hockey downtime and when women's golf was on the golf network.

    When your choices are hockey, Canadian football, curling, and drinking, I'd say you made the best choice possible. Good job.
