Put Lipstick On A Pig And It’s Still A Pig

Russian answer to freedom of speech. Security thugs needed whips and clubs to beat down a Pussy Riot protest at the Olympics.

Russia, what the hell are you doing?

You just spent $50-Billion dollars on an Olympics that showed the world Russia is not the same old USSR that could be symbolized by former Premier Nikita Khrushchev  pounding his shoe on the table and the Berlin Wall. Today the Olympics  seems like a wicked waste of rubles.

The Ukrainian people are angry at the power and the excessive decadence of their leaders.  Why would you support and prop up with troops such a lousy regime? It’s not the Cold War any more, Ivan.

How will history remember you, Putin? As a heavy-handed Communist thug?  Or as a leader with vision who knows Russia is much better today than it was – and could be even greater with more freedom and openness?

You can take the man out of the KGB – but let’s hope you can take the KGB out of the man.
