I don't know how the stats look today but prior to the break-up of the Soviet Union the immigrants from there were statistically the most likely of all immigrant groups in the US to pursue higher education.

Not that a good education guarantees employment nowadays.

tax money, mob money, drug money, blood money, general greed and corruption - there aren't too many ways to pay high tuition without benefiting

Heres a great NY TIMES article explaining Former Soviets in the US if you really want to know. it may even help you understand me a little better... :)

http://www.nytimes.com/2012/05/09/nyregion/among-russian-immigrants-in-new-york-affinity-for-republicans.html?pagewanted=all&_r=0

Highlights:

Feel Democrats like Mr. Obama have introduced “a socialist mentality,” which is why he prefers Republicans. “Too many people want to rely on free money and socialist institutions, and they want businessmen to pay for it,”

“Having been seared by statism, they see Democrats as drifting toward statism and see that as dangerous for themselves and for the country,” said Fred Siegel, a senior fellow at the Manhattan Institute’s Center for State and Local Leadership.

Russians who immigrated to the U.S. are looking for and believing in core or true capitalist ideals,” Mr. Pelin said. “Otherwise they would go to Scandinavian or European countries, or to Canada.”

support Republicans is that they see them as more ardent warriors against the kind of big-government, business-stifling programs that soured their lives in the Soviet Union. Their conservative stances on issues like taxes and Israel seem to outweigh their more liberal views on social issues like abortion.

gratitude to Reagan for his role in the collapse of Communism in the Soviet Union. His 1987 exhortation to Mikhail Gorbachev that he tear down the Berlin Wall still flutters hearts in Brighton Beach. “The Republican Party was the party that brought them out of despair,” Mr. Yeger said.

I don't mean to sound like I have a stick up my butt or anything but I personally find all this back and forth to be incredibly disrespectful to the four people who lost their lives and the countless others who have had their lives irrevocably altered. I'm begging you - please just pretend the Troll isn't there and discuss the topic at hand.

Hey, sue, don't give me this BS about Russian immigrants being somehow superior to everyone else. How many of them have been arrested for scamming Medicare and Medicaid ? And they may hate "socialism" but they sure don't turn down any government program that comes their way. All those old and not-so-old Russians who are collecting even though they've never paid a dime in taxes - yeah, they hate socialism. Go peddle your garbage somewhwere else.

Sue, you should talk about being hateful.

And what I said is true. I could go on and on about how Russians benefit from the system while being against "socialism".
You are the one who said they are somehow superior to other immigrant groups. Nonsense !

"I am going to the United States. I want to say that I am going there to see my son, to bury the older one. I don't have any bad intentions. I don't plan to blow up anything.

As much as I disagree with it I understand that they feel the need to defend their children. Admitting their children did wrong means admitting that they failed as parents (unless they were in on it from the start of course). But I find this comment makes light of all that has happened - all that has been lost. You don't plan on blowing anything up? It was really necessary to say that?

Zubeidat Tsarnaeva, her face pinched under her black head scarf, criticized the U.S. police for shooting dead Tamerlan Tsarnaev, 26, four days after the bombing.

The other son Dzhokhar, 19, was wounded and captured after a manhunt. He is in a fair condition in hospital and is charged with two crimes that carry a possible death penalty.

"I wanted to scream to the whole world, 'What did you do?' What have you done with my son? He was alive. Why did you need to kill him? Why didn't you send him to Guantanamo or whatever? Why? Why? Why did they have to kill him? They got him alive, he was in their hands," she shouted, her voice cracking.

"It is some kind of show, spectacle," she said in accented English.


Maybe she should ask her other son seeing as he was the one to run him over with a car.

I really, really hope they don't execute him. I am not entirely unopposed the the death penalty, but in this case, it's especially contra-indicated. One of the comments below the linked article sums it up for me:

"dead he'll serve as nothing but an example of martyrdom - rotting in jail he'll fade into obscurity."

We don't need a martyr.

eta: I'm in complete agreement with Eris. Arguing with this ridiculous troll is incredibly disrespectful to the dead and wounded. Can we not, at least here, pretend this troll doesn't exist? It trivializes the issue.
