Rouble Rouble Stop Dropping In Value

There is no question that President Vladimir Putin remains very popular to the people of Russia. His approval ratings continue to hover in the high eighties. Of course, I live in the United States of America, a land in which the people of this fair land just voted to support the Republican Party whose policies caused a great recession and got us into wars in the Middle East. But, Americans, just like Russians prefer in power those who cause problems than those who might solve them. The Russian Rouble has fallen in value at least fifty percent and continues dropping. Oil prices are now down by fifty percent. The great Vladimir Putin has done NOTHING to make Russian industry an important factor in the economy since he prefers that Russia should depend upon the export of oil. The price for a barrel is now about $55 while it was about $110 a year ago. Putin has infuriated western Europe, he has angered Saudi Arabia by supporting the Syrian leader, Bashar al-Assad, and he has made the United States the leader of imposing sanctions upon the Russian economy.

But, the people of Russia so like this man who has “restored pride” by seizing the Crimea and causing civil war in Ukraine. So, they flock to his banner of stupidity and watch their economy implode. Such is the price of those lacking common sense. I speak from experience, I recall how Americans felt pride to invade Iraq and get those ever disappearing weapons of mass destruction. Follow Putin and destroy the Russian economy. Hey,take a trip to Russia, you now can get 65 Roubles for each dollar – a year ago you would have gotten 30!

Putin Lays Down Threat

I do not know if the black dude who currently inhabits the Oval Office understands that when he challenges the Great Leader of Russia, then he challenges the very essence of the man who is not afraid of anyone or any wild animal in the forest. Vladimir Putin is making clear that any sanctions pushed by Barack Obama do not frighten him one bit. Heck, he has already halted import of fruits into his country., fuck with him and one fucks with the right to eat apples and oranges. He wants President Obama to understand that “something” is going to happen to the US leader or the United States of America. As of this moment, we are not clear as to what actually is the threat, nor are we clear how Putin will carry it out. However, we believe it might entail one of the following:

1. A challenge at high noon for a wrestling match.

2. A challenge to participate in a hunt for wild animals and the winner takes over the other country.

3. A photo challenge as to whose bare chest is the most intimidating.

Anyway, Barack, beware, you have been warned!

Among the tragedies confronting wealthy people in the United States of America is their inability to have in the role of chief executive of the land someone with the intelligence, the determination and the ruthlessness as Vladimir Putin. This is a man who not only loves the wealthy, but has been determined to use his power in order to accumulate vast wealth. It was Putin who made an alliance with the infamous Oligarchs in order to rob blind the people of Russia. However, now that sanctions are impacting Russian industry, the men who possess billions are a bit upset. Wouldn’t you be angry when the value of their beloved ruble has declined at least 40%?

Russian billionaires have witnessed a decline in their wealth in the billions. But, what are their alternatives? Abandon Putin, and they risk having the story of how they become wealthy known to the people of Russia. Oh, a few like Michael Fridman have sold their shares of stock and headed for sunnier climes. But, the monster that you created is the monster who you must protect. At least here in America, the monsters of wealth have Congress to protect their wealth. Heck, those damn Democrats want to raise taxes at least 2%. The beginning of the end of wealthy Americans!

A Russian Official State Ideology?

After seventy years of rule by the Communist Party, the people of Russia drafted a new Constitution which made it illegal to have an official state ideology. Article 13 clearly states: “no ideology may be established as the state of mandatory one.” Well, times have changed. Over 80% of Russians these days believe that Vladimir Putin is the perfect leader of their nation. Some members of the legislature are discussing the need to establish a state ideology. I assume this is to combat the evil West with its ideas about democracy. In order to assist my Russian brethren, let me propose a new state ideology:

1. Vladimir Putin is established as the ruler of Russia until his death.

2. The words of Comrade Putin will be taught to all children. In order to graduate from high school each and every student must be able to repeat the words of our Beloved Leader.

3. Gays and lesbians have no place in our wonderful land of real men and women.

4. Christianity is now the religion, adopt it or leave the land.

5. All males will serve in the Russian army for a period of ten years

6. Saying the word, “democracy” will result in a jail term of three years–some place in Siberia!

GOD BLESS VLADIMIR PUTIN

Russians So Love Vladimir Putin

Among the most fascinating results of sanctions imposed by twenty six nations upon Russia is the resulting rise in love of their Great Leader by the people of Russia. His popularity has risen to over 80% even while the Russian economy is now entering a recession. John Kerry is in Europe discussing with European Union further plans to impose sanctions, but in Mother Russia, the people just love their Great Leader. The ruble has dropped another 6%, the GDP is contracting, but ask the average Russian how things are going, and the response if the nation needs Vladimir inn order to stand up for their growing pride. The people of Russia endured seventy years of brutal dictatorship which must have made normal the act of killing the innocent. An amazing percent looks back to the good old days when Joseph Stalin murdered TWENTY MILLION PEOPLE. Ah, for the days of secret police and gulags where people were beaten and starved to death.

I really do not completely understand how intelligent people could support such a man. Then again, I inhabit the United States of America in which so-called intelligent people just elected idiots to control of Congress. Is there a human desire to suffer?

Oh, last year 500,000 Russians died of alcoholism.

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.
