Vodka Worked for the Russians: Whiskey will Work for Us
When life became miserable under Communism in Russia, and there was nothing anyone could do about it. They turned to Vodka.

Why not, They had no rights, no real elections, and no matter how hard they worked they could not get ahead.

Sound familar?

Well, the Russians all tipped their glasses and just stayed hammered. Nothing mattered anymore except having a good time.

Well, us Americans are in the same situation... As Vodka is the Russian choice, a good Southern Whiskey or Bourbon will do for all of us.

The system Cannot stand when we all just say to hell with it.



Bottoms up!

Cheers to all.


All we have to do is to enjoy what our lives can give us, dont worry about politics, dont worry about trying to get ahead.

LET the goverment take care of you, stay tipsy and happy. If you focus to much on it all it will depress you.

I dont think of this as a bad thing, I simply dont care to try anymore for the goveremnt we have.

I wont stand for the anthem, I wont vote, or pay attention to the TV, I certainly will not work hard.. that is pointless as they take everything anyway....... I will have a drink with my friends.

Uff DA

Re: Vodka Worked for the Russians: Whiskey will Work for Us
The USSR wanted to deChristianize Russia. They used gulags and vodka. The life expectancy was around 50 years for the men, largely due to alcoholism. Their socialist healthcare system was part of it.

Today the Russian govt says "have more babies" while bringing in Islam for more of the same deChristianizing of Russia.

Well, there doing the SAME thing in the USA.

So have a drink, relax. Not much else you can do but watch it all from a distance.

If you choose to fight it, YOU will end up in the camps or reeducation centers.

Best to lay low, and although I do NOT recommend becoming an alcholic, I do recomend the principle of my idea.

Just be at ease, let what is coming come. ENJOY your friends and family. And today, I welcome you to raise a glass to this new outlook.

Re: Vodka Worked for the Russians: Whiskey will Work for Us
big difference .. people did not need to work hard to survive in communist russia..they could show up to work drunk and not get fired, they never had any real responsibility..everyone that finished college got a job there

In the USA people work hard to just survive, those who finish college are in debt for life with no job

and by the way, America has more people in the correctional system than the soviet union ever had in the gulags

think about it

I think you may be on to something.

Obviously, we can't do anything about it and have no say in what happens to us any more so why try?

Breaking out the Scotch and wondering where I can sign up for one of those Obamaphones.
One of the most important aspects of conspiracy theories is being able to discern when there isn't one.

Oh yeah, like you'd understand anyway.

Where are we going and why am I in this handbasket?. . .J. Handy
