You know something? No sooner does KFC (that’s right the Colonel’s own) open it’s doors in three prime Barnaul (Siberian Russia) locations, then the goons and goof balls of America’s political elite turn around and call Russia the greatest existential threat to Western Civilization and its crown jewel, Amerika! I work diligently on a daily basis to convince my friends, students and colleagues here that the American fast-food invasion — KFC, Papa John’s, Subway, Cinnabon — is really not in their national or personal self-interest. More often then not my vocalizations fall on deaf and dumb ears.
But that is only the beginning. When I asked my class today, why Barnaulians insist on buying big Mercedes cars and SUV’s on credit no less, while they live in ramshackled Kruschevka apartments.. the girl said, and I quote, “It’s more comfortable.” I smiled slyly and inquired… “So, I guess your dad owns one, yes?” She giggled and nodded her somewhat embarrassed ascent.
What can I say? It is a tough row to hoe! But, I hear how Russia is invading Ukraine, Belarus, Syria, and the US army goons are planning for war against a resurgent Russia. But, if they are all good capitalists, and the Russians are running as fast as they can to catch the Western trends… what is the fucking problem. The real problem is resources, and control of the flow of funds. The American/Western oligarchs want complete control!!
I’ve got a sterling idea. Let’s start a nuclear war… and see who wins. But no one blinks an eye at the FACT that America has started and financed all “Color Revolutions” — Tunisia, Yemen, Libya, Egypt, Georgia, Ukraine, as well as invading and destroying Iraq, and Afghanistan, droning on and on over Pakistan, as well as many other infractions in Africa, and elsewhere.
The greatest existential threat to world salvation (not to mention, peace) are the boys and girls of the corporate elite pulling the strings West of Moscow. If we silence these motherfuckers, the world has a chance of surviving. But, it may already be too late. So let’s privatize all water (Nestle), control all agriculture (Monsanto), create revolutions to enrich the armament producers (Lockheed Martin, Northrup-Grummon, General Dynamics), rape mother earth for her lubrication and fuel (Halliburton), let the money lender (Goldman Sachs) print money and do God’s bidding, and force all citizens of the world to pay (Pfizer) for their drug induced acquiescence.
I do not know what else to say. God save Russia! You are either with’em or against ’em!
