Don't act surprised folks. Par for the course these Days. I find the piece from MarketDailyNews (below) just as humorous.


In Russia, shopping malls are putting out American flag doormats for people to wipe their feet on, and there are stores that are selling toilet paper with the American flag imprinted on it. Read more: WHAT REALLY HAPPENED | The History The US Government HOPES You Never Learn! whatreallyhappened.com...


www.dailymail.co.uk... html

Russian business owners are using American flags as doormats as resentment over U.S. economic sanctions puts the squeeze on traders. Customers have been filmed wiping their feet on the fabled stars and stripes as they enter and exit stores across Moscow, as struggling retailers take a hopeless swipe at their Cold War adversaries.


"Take a Swipe"...



www.vesti.ru...


Found this obvious piece of garbage as well. Americans have NO ANIMOSITY towards Russia? That in itself is enough to make a Russian spew his Vodka.

marketdailynews.com...

Surveys show that Russian attitudes toward the U.S. are now even worse than they were during the end of the Cold War

But in the U.S., things are completely different. Most Americans feel absolutely no animosity toward Russians or their government.


And then this:

"So most Americans have a really hard time grasping what is going on inside Russia right now. Even if they have heard about how much Russians hate us, they don’t really understand how this could be possible."

Well, Russians have a sense of humor about it all I guess.

Peace

Well isn't that special. Of course I have animosity all over the forums,not only here,but on face book and everywhere else I go.And IF it was true that Americans just are clueless about why Russias aren't happy with us,then the idiots haven't been reading the news anywhere. Nothing to see here, move along.

I never understood why treating a banner badly would offend others/ land you a fine/ in jail. But if you rape the land it is supposed to represent, you are usually high fived and made rich, by the people who respect the said banner.

Well, I don't blame the Russian citizens for hating the US. I just wish they knew it was not half of the ordinary people who caused the sanctions imposed on the people of Russia. It was a conglomerate of governments, of which the US is one of.

What is genius about all this rightly or wrongly (depends on what side of the grand stand you are on I suppose) is how the anger has been directed away from the Russian government (Putin) and instead directed towards the west... We need to hire their propaganda minister ! Naw second thought ours do a good job by themselves. The Russian tourist have fallen off around here dramatically... No money no holiday... Just the cold Russian winter to look forward to... That right there is enough to piss most people off if they know better !

Sad... how long before they start burning the US flag?

The anti American rhetoric over there is reaching Nazi Germany proportions

Extremist much?

Can they afford toilet paper anymore?

Maybe they should blame Putin. The only one not to blame is the US, as Obama's actions have done nothing. It was Saudi Arabia who has destroyed the Russian economy.

Sure...

Russian economy attacked through oil prices – Obama



Pushing down global oil prices was part of Washington’s rationale to destabilize the Russian economy, US President Barack Obama said in an interview to National Public Radio, a non-profit media organization.

Considering the ruble is once again declining those American flag rolls of tp are actually worth more than the ruble.

When Russians get to the point of being unable to buy, well, anything they can always use the rubles to wipe their own asses.

You proved your point US can`t be held accountable for anything.

It doesn`t matter what the US government does, it`s always someone else who`s responsible.

Except that's not at all what I said. Not surprised that's what you would take away from it though, as your eyes are so full of hate every single thing you see and hear becomes twisted into some sort of anti-US rhetoric. The news could be about a fireman in Haiti saving a cat from a tree and somehow you will find a way to make the US a part of the story, and they are wrong for something.

As I said. Saudi Arabia is the one manipulating gas prices. You don't even deny it. you proved yourself wrong. Thanks.
