      I don’t think so. Remember , Russia’s changed completely after the October revolution and the disintegration of the USSR. As to brain drain it’s sad but true.

      What in hell are you talking about.

      I said I am a fair market capitalist... You asked, don't be disappointed with the answer.

      Also... I referred to you as Msr... "MONSIEUR" a French word equivalent to English "My Lord", which... If cultured... You would recognize.

      Now you return with "Mrs."... And you insult capitalism saying it's failed in Russia.

      Clearly you misunderstand, or... Perhaps you're 13.

      Yes... I am insulted by the claim (by you) that Russians fail at capitalism, given the collapse of the SU and apparent failure of communism. With friends like you who needs enemies.

      Msr. Bender... I have now seen the soviet propaganda poster you shared with me.

      I am glad that I can offer some explanation of this poster.

      To western eyes, sure the poster looks like he is rejecting Uncle Sam with an open fist.

      However this poster is only rejecting the policies which Uncle Sam is carrying...

      There are 3 policies depicted in the poster.

      1, There is a weapon wrapped in a treaty.

      2, He holds malnourished food stuffs.

      3, Uncle Sam is forcing it on the citizen.

      Clearly you can see today the effect of those policies on the condition of Americans and others of the world.

      Finally, the poster is presented to the Soviet people, whereas the Uncle Sam in the poster's depiction is forcing his propaganda and beliefs on other people... Well, it's true... So anyway it's an honest poster and repentantion of how the leadership has felt in that situation.

      I am a fair market capitalist.

      I believe the population should not be exploited, enslaved and oppressed into a condition of perpetual servitude to the already rich and that common people do not deserve depravation of wealth and over-taxation.

      These are the American ideals. It is you who is anti-American.

      Ostap , I could try , but it wouldn't do any good . the people that have left are slowly filtering back in .

      so , let's hope that trend continues , but people will have to make up their own minds .

      Awww, just seeing you is better than a rep, my friend! Besides, when they took away the scoreboard, they took away the fun... hardly anybody reps anymore. *B-O-R-I-N-G* ;)

      sorry about taking a few days to get back to you , Ostap , I'm not on PF as much as I used to be , all these PF shutdowns & bs re-dos have me looking at other web-sites that actually work...

      Glad to hear you're well, my friend. They're still having problems with the site... sometimes it not worth the trouble to post here. Don't know if they'll ever get it back to the way it was. Very sad. :(

      Gosh Ostap , I haven't heard from Jollee or Changed in over a year on PF . although , I do hear from them occasionally after I send them a HallMark e-card. . . Jollee moved to Arizona , she's ok , her husband had been sick , her kid was sick , but she was ok , other than that . I thought Changed would have been back by now , KK8 is still here , but doesn't run in the same threads I do. Jiyuu-Freedom I hear from about once a month .

      It's Spring here , people will be planting corn & gardens soon, how about where you live ?

      Aw shucks, honey. The "find latest posts" feature doesn't work. I've let the mods know about it.

      I haven't run across any of your posts. I guess we don't run in the same threads.
