Russian Dreams Linger On

The capacity of the human mind to ignore reality has always amazed me. In Nazi Germany people did their best to ignore that their nation had embarked on a program that was leading to war and destruction because most people just love the histrionics of Adolf Hitler. Today in Russia, the public has decided to wipe from their minds the reality of what is occurring inside their nation. Reality: Prices on goods are rising, the economy is heading towards a recession, jobs are being lost, the ruble has declined to the lowest rate of exchange with US dollars in history, but most Russians are convinced there are no sanctions, and their beloved Great Leader, Vladimir Putin has everything under control. Poll after poll reveals that Russians overwhelmingly support this petty ruler and actually believe that Nazis now control the government in Ukraine.

Then again, I live in the United States of America, a nation in which most who recently voted supported those who have made life worse for the average American. Americans, like Russians, want the government to give them goodies, but they support those who seek to reduce their Social Security or damage the ability of people to obtain health care. Russians are no different than Americans in their capacity to ignore reality and dream on about a world that does not exist.

Putin Offers Advice

There is one certainty in life, if one is seeking to read a stupid comment, just dial in to the Moscow Times for the latest statement about life from our Beloved Leader, Vladimir Putin. He so enjoys engaging in verbal judo, at which he considers himself to be a master. The Syrian Foreign Minister, Waid al-Moualem visited Moscow since there are few other capitals that would have a welcome mat for him. Naturally, he received hugs and kisses from Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov and the Great Man himself. Putin wanted to make clear to all nations of the world, “we share the view that the main factor driving the situation in the Middle East is the terrorist threat. Russia will support Syria in countering this threat.” Let me get this clear:

1. The initial violence in Syria arose when people wanted human rights.

2. Good buddy Bashar decided the only human rights in Syria belonged to him.

3. Being a close ally of Putin meant that Assad acted like his mentor-kill anyone who dares opposing you!

Such began the madness in Syria, and such remains the madness in Russia for those seeking democratic rights.

No Dark Days For Russia

Vladimir Putin regards himself as the world’s leader in fighting against the forces of multiculturalism since when a nation that regards itself as a bastion of whiteness allows those of other shades of skin to reside within their midst, what else is the prospect other than racial disorder? He is the man on guard at the bridge of whiteness standing tall with a machine gun ready to blast away at any dark skinned person seeking to cross over into the beloved white land of Mother Russia. Let me makes clear that Mother Russia only had white kids, even in far off Siberia.

Putin informed the world about the greatest menace to European civilization. “In the modern world, extremism is being used as a geopolitical instrument and for remaking spheres of influence. We see that the tragic consequences, the wave of so called color revolutions led to. For us, this is a lesson and warning. We must do everything necessary so that nothing like that ever happens in Russia.” In other words, if your skin is black, stay out of White Russia!

Putin Wants Bank Bailout!

Few Americans grasp the enormous range of abilities possessed by the man known as, Vladimir Putin. He can wrestle a bear, catch a whale, confront any tiger and handle it hand to claws. So, it is not surprising that Vladimir is also a brilliant financial wizard. Yesterday, the Russian ruble collapsed and it lost at least ten percent in relation with the dollar. Banks are reporting runs in which depositors either demand their money or insist on converting their money to dollars. Alas, there simply is not enough Euros or dollars in Moscow to handle demands. Russians should not fear. The Great Leader will shortly president an economic plan that will end the financial crisis that is sweeping Russia.

We expect Vladimir to threaten Europe with having to listen to his speeches if they refuse to end sanctions toward Russia. On the other hand, the Great One may simply head to the wilds of Siberia to confront the bears. Hopefully, this will not result in a bear market.

Vladimir Just Won’t Stop

It becomes increasingly clear that President Putin must prove that he is one tough guy, and without a daily challenge, life is simply not enjoyable. A column of Russian troops and weapons has crossed the border into Ukraine, and the separatists will shortly be receiving ammo in order to blast away at their supposed enemies. Each day the Russian economy reveals evidence that sanctions, as well as the drop in oil prices, are impacting the daily lives of Russians. But, at this point, Putin is still convinced he has the power to force nations of the world to obey his dictates. The world is dealing with a man who is so egocentric that reality has a difficult time entering into his mind. So, how to handle such a person?

1. Refuse to take his challenge. Allow him to militarily build up eastern Ukraine forces.

2. Allow the thugs who rule that area to actually meet the daily needs of people. Reality is they lack any competence to function as a government.

3. Allow economic chaos to become the norm in eastern Ukraine.

4. Ban all flights between Europe and Russia.

5. Ban all trade between Europe and Russia.

Just do not engage in military action.

Ukraine’s Sorrow

Most probably the greatest problem confronting the people of Ukraine is that they are so far from God and so close to Russia. An “election” was held in eastern regions of Ukraine, and surprise, surprise the local thugs placed in power by Russian weapons won this “election.” There are still thousands of Russian troops on the border of Ukraine and thousands of Russian troops are providing weapons and training to eastern Ukraine men. Frankly, I have no idea who actually “voted” and who is counting those votes, but it is clear that a bunch of men without political ideas, let alone knowledge of how to run a government were given the reign of power by dear old Vladimir Putin. We can assume this new nation now known as New Russia by the boys who set it up will soon become the Old Russia as personified by Vladimir Putin. So, what does New Russia look like?

1. Thugs run the government.

2. Gays and lesbians had better head for other climes.

3. Kleptomaniacs will shortly take over control of any business establishment.

4. There will be a direct line to Moscow in order to get orders as to what must be done.

5. Plenty of weapons will be in New Russia.

Oh, the economy will become an economic wreck!

Black Russians Not Welcomed

The nation of Russia extends for over six thousand miles from the steppes of Europe to the wilds of Asia. Within its borders are people of very diverse backgrounds including millions of Muslims as well as a huge Christian population. The people of Russia have a great love of the game known as football, the one which we Americans term to be, soccer. A soccer player from Cameron has been living in Moscow, and is considered an outstanding player. The head coach of an important Russian soccer team was asked by reporters if he was going to sign Benoit Angbeva to the team. He responded: “We already have six black players, do you want me to get a seventh?”

His comment aroused anger in the British press which led Mr. Gamulin to respond: “Angbeva just lives here. The British press just doesn’t understand Russian humor.” Yes, they do not understand that Russians are notorious for regarding blacks as inferior. In the! old days of the Soviet Union when thousands were brought to Russia for an education they walked the streets encountering daily slurs about their “monkey sin.” Welcome to Mother Russia, as long as you are white

Whatever Happened To Capitalism?

The collapse of the Soviet Union, the decision of Chinese Communist leaders to embrace market economies was thought to signal the end of Communism, and the birth of a new world in which Capitalism was the new economic norm. That was then, and today is now. European economies are stagnant, right wing nuts blaming immigrants for the failures of capitalism are present in just about every European society. America has become a nation in which 1% control 22% of the wealth, and our top 5% control 44%. The gap grows wider between the average working stiff in America and his beloved suffering boss who devotes his time and money ensuring the election of conservatives who pray before the altar of the wealthy. Raising minimum wages is the first step on the road to communism, but lowering taxes on the wealthy is the best guarantee they will have more and more money. So, what is the story of modern Capitalism?

1. The number of low income people able to become middle class is falling. If you are born poor, so will your children live a life of poverty.

2. Capitalism is NOT producing jobs that pay a middle class wage for the average person.

3. The number of part time employees rises each year which ensures these workers will never enter the middle class.

To put it bluntly, Capitalism has failed to create a society in which each person, in reality, has a chance to economically advance. This basic claim of capitalism simply no longer is true.

Perhaps, it is time to revisit other forms of economic theory such as Socialism. Perhaps, we need a new economic system that incorporates the best ideas from Capitalism and from Socialism?

I await the ideas of a new Economic system that is designed to empower each person to rise to some higher economic status. Of one thing I am certain, this will NOT happen under a Capitalist system!!

Life In Putinland

There are stories that come from Russia which reveal the extent of how Vladimir Putin has transformed a budding democratic society into one where what the Great Leader says is truth must be the truth or decide to spend your life in some prison in Siberia. The entire staff of the State Central Museum of Cinema has resigned. Yes, the entire staff of trained professionals because they do not wish to work for someone who simply mouths of the ideas of Putin, the great expert on cinema. The entire staff claims that Putin appointed Lavria Solonitsya “has demonstrated her incompetence more and more.. the non-transparency of her decisions has come accompanied with a stubborn unwillingness to listen to the opinions of employees.”

What better description of President Vladimir Putin. Place an egomaniac in charge of the nation and he will appoint like thinking people to key jobs. Anyway, I assume these employees will be offered a nice job at a cinema in Siberia.

Putin Speaks, So Listen!!

Vlaimir Putin has spoken and I trust that Americans will listen to a man with an iron heart who does not fear any animal, let alone any human. There are unconfirmed reports he just came back from wrestling a bear and sending him flying away in fear. So, the Great Leader decided to offer some of his wise words both to the people of Russia and America. He wants the world to know that: “I don’t think the United States poses a threat to Russia.” Wow, now I can sleep peacefully knowing the most powerful man in the world does not expect to go to war against America! However, the All Wise one has some words of advice to the American people about Barack Obama: “I think the policies of the ruling elite(in America) are erroneous. I think they go against our(Russian) interests, and undermine trust in the United States.”

I think we Americans should pay attention to this man of the truth. If only he was in the White House, every Muslim terrorist would tremble in fear. Imagine the head of ISIS being challenged to a duel at high noon with the Black Belt leader of Russia! If only we had a Rambo in the White House instead of a guy who plays golf! How about asking Putin to come to America and become our leader? OK, so you gays might be a bit worried, but which is more important, disturbing gays or ending fear of terrorists??

Then again, this blog would end if Putin was in charge.
