A Russian Tail, and Dog
That’s right: Suppose we told you that the Chief of the KGB makes 50% more than the President and 25% more than the Prime Minister, who in turn makes 25% more than the President — what would you make of it?
Who, in your view, is really running this country?
And how could either the president or the prime minister afford the swiss watches they wear, watches that cost a third to a half of their annual income? How could Putin afford to give such a watch away to a boy he met on the street?
Isn’t it clear that the Russian government is entirely a fraud, a sham orchestrated for the benefit of idiotic foreigners and cowardly, hapless Russians?
How can a government like this be considered fit for membership in councils of civilized nations like the G-8 and the UN Security Council?
These are the questions we are asking.
