LOL. Half the Politburo was drunk. The poster should show Brezhnev. “He got drunk and almost pushed the button and started a nuclear war.”

The Politburo would get together for wild drinking parties, where Stalin would joke to them that he poisoned all of their drinks.

I’ve been to Russia and Kazahkstan. It’s either drink something alcoholic or take your chances with the local water. I stuck with the alcoholic beverages.

Oh-oh say, can you see,
The flag that's on my plate,
I eaaat the U.S.,
A country I haa-ate.

With carrots for stripes,
And peas for stars,
The meat-loaf I guess,
Must stand for Ford ca-ars.

I have made several trips to Ukraine. The flights out of Kiev to western Europe take off at around 7:00 or 8:00 am and shortly after take-off, the stewardess is pushing the drink cart down the aisle, serving vodka and brandy. When the hard stuff is being served that early, you’ve got a societal drinking problem.

You know this is a crock. This “New Soviet Man’’ is wearing a Western-style suit, nice hair and he’s eating meat. The fact he’s even eating at all is a stretch, such as things were in the old Soviet Union.

No, not really. A little hair-of-the-dog can stop the shakes and nausea, sometimes. When I wake up, I normally have a half a pint of vodka with my coffee to stop shaking and puking while I’m getting ready for work. Also, this will keep me settled and help me not to drink heavily before lunch. After a little lunch pick me up, I can then get to the end of the shift before I start drinking normally, you know, just to help me relax and get to sleep.

Again, I don’t have a drinking problem. I do all of this for medicinal reasons and to benefit the company. My drinking is a matter of science and is not a problem regardless of what any of my ex-wives and ex-bosses say.

If you can get hold of a paperback copy at Amazon or someplace, read “MIG PILOT” Sub-titled “The Final Escape of Lt. Belenko” you will not only get a startling picture of the drinking situation over there, but also a mind-boggling realization how the failed misery of socialism is being installed HERE? The chapter on Stalin’s death and the shrieking gullible deification of him is eerily similar to all the idolizing of Zero! That is a non-fiction book, by the way......and dirt cheap, used, on Amazon.

That was from the famous episode of SCTV where their satellite signal was being intermittently taken over by a Russian TV uplink.

At one point the SCTV program feed got co-opted by an extremely boring talkshow, featuring a couple of bumpkins with short pants and white socks.

One bumpkin was wearing an RCA BK-5 microphone (I hate myself for knowing this!) which was the size of a salami on a neckstrap.

One camera pulled back and the other camera came into the shot. It was the size of a refrigerator.

I was surprised to find that every teenager in Europe smokes, at least the girls. Finally figured out why, though.

Some obscure arm of the Law patrols the streets checking to make sure all the teens are smoking. When they find a kid who doesn’t smoke, they dragoon her and send her to a re-education camp. After the tender attentions of the professional caregivers, she comes out smoking (for life, of course).

Being Socialist countries with State healthcare, they have to start them young so that they won’t clog up the already-overloaded medical facilities with all the complaints of an extended old age.

If he’s right-handed, and eating like a European, he cuts with the knife in the right hand while holding the meat down with the fork in the left.

Then without switching hands, as most of us would do, he simply keeps the fork with the cut morsel in his left hand and brings it to his mouth.

I think that you are emblematic of the distinctions between Soviet communism and American capitalism. You have taken control of your life and used that initiative that is so innate to capitalism. Rather than waste money on the medical community, you have independently and accurately diagnosed your medical condition and have taken the requisite actions to alleviate it.

Whereas in the Soviet Union you would have waited for hours or days or months to see a doctor to get a quack remedy.

I applaud your assumption of personal responsibility!

I remember the book by Victor Belenko. IIRC, he wrote that it was almost impossible to keep the MIG 25 supplied with alcohol need for some function or other, because it would be drunk instead. But if you want a better picture of how bad it is now catch a recent documentary with a cameo by Vladimir Putin, Wild Wild Beach (2006) by the Russian filmmaker Vitaly Mansky. It's unbelievable!

Besides the Stalin's engineered famine in the 1930 (mostly Ukraine and a part of Southern Russia), the war and the immediate postwar years, things were not quite as bleak as you describe over there. I always cringe when conservatives propagate simplistic generalizations, makes us look like fools.
