Prices that I pay in Russia for food and some thoughts…

grumpy-old-bear-wtrA very good example of what I pay for food is milk. I just bought 5 milks at 29 rubles per liter. That is give or take, 44 cents per liter and that equates to .44 X 3.8 liters per gallon = $1.672 per gallon. I then looked at the government information in America of prices just for milk…

Milk price America.gov : Then I looked at other items… (look it all up yourself at the link below! I do not make this stuff up…)

Bread for me in Russia – 18 rubles per loaf = 27 cents in dollars. Price per gov. = $1.40 in America…
Eggs – 39 rubles per 10 = 3.9 rubles per egg. 6 cents per egg. America – 17 to 20 cents an egg…
Bananas – I paid 57 rubles for a kilo. America pays 57 cents for a pound. Big difference for a kilo is 2.2 pounds…
Whole chicken – I pay 79 rubles a kilo. America is paying $1.60 per pound. Once again kilo is much heavier than a pound…

I could go on all day, but with the few exceptions, I pay much less than I would in America for basic foods…

You should question things around you! Why does a country under heavy illegal sanctions and under massive attacks financially, still doing better than America for her people? Why does Russia now lead the world in wheat exports? Why is Russia becoming pork independent? Beef independent? Chicken independent? Why is Russia looking over her shoulder and watching the recession recede away? Why can Russia crank up internal production, but America keeps sending its life blood out the door? You should ask, “Why?”

Why is all this happening and all you hear is about how terrible things are in Russia?

Tidbit 1: Yes, things as food cost more in Russia, but then they cost more for everyone in the world. Tidbit 2: Illegal Sanctions backfired and yet the EU and the USA keep them going as if they are doing any good…

The sanctions are doing a good thing; they are killing the host…

Remember how terrible the west attacked verbally, media wise and even politically Russia about the Olympics a few years ago? Well it all is happening to Brazil and the shameless media, politicians and lies are abound from the western world. Hate is such a terrible thing to live life with…

I wish Sveta and I could go, but it is so far away and so expensive to travel that far. Money is tight, but we were able to go to the Paralympics here in Russia and that was a trip of a lifetime…

It is going to be wonderful for Brazil. They have fought a huge battle against the west, just like Russia did and China before that, with their Olympics. The only thing I will say to Brazil is, “Watch your back! The west is gunning for you!”

The winds of power in the world are changing…

The old powers are slipping and they are scared. This is normal in the world, but never has the old powers had so much technology at their disposal. When I look at the advancements made since even the Vietnam war; I sometimes stop and pray that if there is a God, may he step in and stop what is brewing, like a volcano just about to erupt. I look around me and hope that if at anytime we need someone bigger than us to say NO! It is now!

“God” is as big as it comes in my eyes!
