This time you're gone too far, Putin!!!

This means war!! How dare he do infrastructure projects funded by the government!! How will he find time between hacking US elections?!?!

About 9,000 kilometers of highways and roads in Russia will be transferred to federal ownership by 2021 before a major rebuilding project to boost the country's road infrastructure and the national economy.

The trend will continue after 2021 with additional 8,300kms of road becoming the property of the Federal government. Federal highways are usually of much better quality in Russia, and the transfer of ownership will speed up their reconstruction and building, authorities say.

The measure will increase the share of federal highways by a third from the current 50,000kms. At the moment, more than half of regional roads are of inferior quality in Russia, and authorities hope that tighter spending control would help. After the election win this year, President Vladimir Putin has pledged to spend up to 8 trillion rubles (about $130 billion) on road infrastructure by 2024.

It seems like every day someone comes up with something that happened long ago and blame it on Russia. They didn't just hack into the DNC computers and Hillary's emails, they also caused the disruption at the Nevada caucus and also the democratic convention where they made Bernie's supporters leave their signs outside and then had the lights turned off where they were sitting. I'm not sure if they wouldn't let Tulsi speak as she was supposed to.

But Putin had planned to make Trump his puppet as far back as 2013 when the Ms. America pageant was in Russia. That Vlad guy sure is devious isn't he?

He was able to schedule a nerve toxin poisoning two days before Russia's national election. And he squeezed in another one during the launch of the World Cup in Russia. It was Putin's way of saying, "Welcome to Russia. We're probably going to try to poison you with our nerve toxins, but our chemists are lousy so you will probably survive. See you in Sochi."

to the nerve agent just happened to find the perfume bottle that the Russian agent threw away miles away from the Skripal home where he sprayed it on the doorknob in the same area where the Skripals became sick. She sprayed some on both of her wrists and then walked around for awhile before driving back to the town she lived in before she got sick. Then somehow her boyfriend got exposed to it too and did the same things she did, but also went somewhere for 5 more hours before he became sick too. For being the deadliest nerve agent ever made it sure doesn't seem to live up to its reputation.

People say that Vlad is a ruthless man, but he must find some of the dumbest people to carry out his orders. That anyone can believe this story that was concocted is just beyond belief.

He hired the worst.hackers.in.the.world!

They leave their IP addresses behind, forget to change the time stamp, scribble the names of Russian leaders in the margins, jot notes containing cyrillic script, and name-drop the program they're using, which happens to be two years obsolete.
