Fact of the Day: Lenin Hypocrisy

Despite being the first leader of the Communist Soviet Union, Vladimir Lenin drove cars much better than the average Russian. During his time in leadership, he had nine Rolls-Royces.

Ah the things that you can do when you are SUPREME ruler of such a vast
country - bugger the proletariate ! You are the new Communist Tsar.
Look at the P.R.C. - one party state where the rich get richer and the poor
get poorer. How does that song in the Great Gatsby go??
"The rich get rich and the poor get poorer, in the meantime, in between time,
lets all have fun".
Ironic isn't it???

I've heard wild stories about this man - it seems he even met my grandfather once in the childhood home of my mother as Lenin was passing through Finland. Thanks for stopping by my blog!

It's important to have one for every day of the week, with two spares. You never know when you might need them!

I've heard it said and I believe it: Laws are for the little people.

I so agree with Mr. Hayes, above...just take a look at laws being broken by so many in Washington...they get by with it...us little folks have to tow the line to stay out of trouble.
