Power Two Ways…

imagesHaving worked as an upper management for McDonald’s many years ago, I rarely go into one to eat. But, today I decided to walk to the mall and sit for awhile and eat two cheeseburgers and a small diet coke…

I needed to get a few groceries and before getting them, I set and watched Russians living life at McDonald’s. I am telling you this because, like all the other countries we Americans allow to be destroyed by our government and its cronies, Russia is a very advanced country…

Before we tried to change Syrian, Libyan, Afghanistan and Iraq heads of states. These countries were all very advanced and very pleasant to live in. Say what you want, but democracy has destroyed these countries and their living standards are a tenth of what they had before we brought love and bombs to them…

I set and watched the electronic kiosks at work. Russians love these devices and other than me, everyone was using a debit card and keeping the kiosks busy. It was a social event to these people. They talked and joked with each other, the young couples discussed what they would buy together and mothers had to pick their kids up and allow them to punch their food into the kiosk…

The two burgers I got could have been from America. The diet coke I sipped on, could have been from America. The music playing softly in the ceiling speakers, was from America and all in English. The families, kids, moms and elderly all looked like Americans…

The teenager who was suppose to be wiping tables, was playing on his cellphone. Just like America…

The 70 to 80 year old elderly couple, cut their hamburger in half, divided the french fries and shared a soda, just like in America. Pinching pennies, just like in America…

The kids had a birthday party going on in the party play room. Yes, just like in America. In fact, at this stage of my life here. I just had to close my eyes and it was America. That is how much the normal people are to us Americans…

Just wanting to live a life and not worry about who will drop a damn bomb on their heads. Is the biggest difference in Russian and Americans…

I listened to a table nearby and it was full of about twenty years old. Five of them and they were talking about America…

Obama had turned out to be a fake (and his Nobel Prize is a joke in their eyes) and they all know Hillary’s track record as Secretary of the State of America. Trump is well known also and is known for being a ruthless oligarch. Russians know about them well…

Then the conversation turned to Putin and one of the five disliked Putin. After a heated argument and the one hater of Putin, spouting CNN, BBC and several other western media sources. The others shut him down and laughed at his choice of information. He got up and said a few choice words, as a Babushka scolded him for those words, and he left. The other four watched him leave and then went back to talking about Russia and Putin…

It all sounded just like America to me…

I walked home with my groceries and stuff. Two moms with their doggies had a dog fight going. Another doggy came from across the park, as his owner yelled at him and joined the fun. Everyone got tangled up in the leashes! And guess what?

Just like America…

I want you to realize that 100% of the countries that our America has destroyed and tried to reshape, is a failure. It is a failure in all but the profits made for the few…

Russia does not need to be changed in anyway. Russia is flawed, but flawed in a better way than how we are flawed. Russia had its ass handed to it years ago and has come back from the brink of death…

Putin is good for the people and the people need his kind of strength. The issue that arises is that we Americans need a person like Putin and we have not had that person for a long time in America in the White House…

* * * * * * * * * *

America needs to become like Russia, instead of Russia becoming like America. America needs to wield a big stick, but use it only when necessary. It seems that our big stick has become a way of life and that is where I hope Russia never becomes America…

Power is of two kinds. One is obtained by the fear of punishment and the other by acts of love. Power based on love is a thousand times more effective and permanent then the one derived from fear of punishment. – Mahatma Gandhi

Amen to that…

A survivor of six heart attacks and a brain tumor, a grumpy bear of a man, who has declared Russia as his new and wonderful home (&) Honestly, I have no idea how much to ask for, but is a gift of even $1 something you'd be able to consider, to help keep Windows to Russia online in a Tiny Russian Village?
