One of my best friends brought a wife from the Ukraine about 10 or 11 years ago who spoke no English. During the time she has been here, she learned how to speak English, while learning English she aquired a college degree majoring in Actuarial Sciences and a minor in math.

Her entire family lived in a small apartment there, no one had ever owned a car before, food was commonly rationed in the markets. She knows communism, she lived under it.

She's one of the most outspoken people against Socialism and communism that I have ever met

It’s funny but my buddy’s wife is really shy because of her English but once the topic turns to politics, she lights up like a firecracker and she’s nonstop......

The revolution/McPherson Square brigade just paraded down the street a few minutes ago. Someone has gone out and bought them all red sweatshirts. True colors showing.

I had the same thought actually. The kids voice seemed weird as well. I don’t doubt they are that stupid, but something just seemed weird about the video. Funny though.

I know lots of Russians. That's a real accent. If it's not, the guy has spent so much time in Russia and among Russian emigrés mangling English, that he probably knows more about socialism than any of us. And he's a linguistic genius.

I'm kidding around about the last part. The short form is that his accent is authentic. There are too many tiny little diphthongs where they don't belong to be fake. They occur consistently around the same sounds, and precisely in the Russian way. He speaks good English, but not perfect, and his imperfections are the same ones that afflict all Slavic language speakers learning English.

Same goes at my work. I have a co-worker from ukraine. He was in the soviet military and in the Soviet War in Afghanistan. He is the most outspoken guy about socialism, marxism, etc...
He even agrees that we need to get rid of all muslims. He may even be more conservative than me, if that’s even possible. People that come from a socialist or communist nation, never want to go back and always praise capitalism. They know how it works and never want to see it happen again.

Really? It never lapses, and it never varies from metro Odessa (Ukrainian).

I have some friends that came over from Bulgaria. They tell me stories about waiting for hours to buy potatoes. Four years for a TV and it cost a years wages.

Then theres the car, if you wanted a car for your kid you had to order it when he was born so it would be delivered in time for his 18th birthday.

Accents are strange things. when learning a new language you tend to pick up the accent of your teacher. So was his accent fake or just different from what you are used to?

“One of my best friends brought a wife from the Ukraine...”

Isn’t Marina, the girl that does word origins on O’Reilly, from the Ukraine? She could teach me whatever she wanted to, all day long.

“...if you wanted a car for your kid you had to order it when he was born so it would be delivered in time for his 18th birthday.”

And the dad wanted to know if the delivery would be in the morning or afternoon because he was expecting the plumber to come in the morning?

Well, considering the amount of money he spent corresponding with her over the internet, the money he spent traveling there to meet her, then the money spent on getting her released from the Ukraine and flying her to the U.S., you could say he "bought" her..........LOL! She's a lovely gal for my buddy......

Putin: Obama “Idiot” For Adopting Socialism

MOSCOW (SR) – Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin has warned the Obama administration against adopting further socialism, saying Russian history clearly proves it is a recipe for failure.

“Any fourth grade history student knows socialism has failed in every country, at every time in history,” said Putin. “President Obama and his fellow Democrats are either idiots or deliberately trying to destroy their own economy.”

Economists say Putin’s comments serve to illustrate how worldwide markets have made even economic adversaries dependent on each other’s financial stability.

An Obama spokesman dismissed Putin’s claim, saying, “We’re going to do socialism better.”

http://papundits.wordpress.com/2009/02/23/putin-obama-idiot-for-adopting-socialism/

Even Putin sees Obama’s Socialism. Wealth is not the Problem. Poverty is the problem. Wealth is the solution.

It’s hard to take a break when so much is happening—especially when so much of it is destroying our freedom and our ability to improve our lives through wealth creation.

Here is an article I just learned about. It was posted February 11th and is reporting on a speech by Putin given January 28th.

Putin Warns US About Socialism

“In the 20th century, the Soviet Union made the state’s role absolute,” Putin said during a speech at the opening ceremony of the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. “In the long run, this made the Soviet economy totally uncompetitive. This lesson cost us dearly. I am sure nobody wants to see it repeated.”*

Why has this not made more headlines?

Why does a Communist from Russia need to warn the President of the United States about the dangers of central planning?

What is going on here?

Where is the outrage?
