    Remember how he was the 'world champion' of anti-corruption LMAO? And now 2015 is the year the Russian 5th column imploded, with the likes of Navalny being exposed as a foreign agent, Gaidar's daughter meeting and befriending Sockpuppetshivili in Odessa, Vladimir Bukovsky being prosecuted for possessing child-pornography, Garry Kasparov being prosecuted for corruption, Nemtsov being executed 'gangland style' by the very intelligence network that controlled him, but all those pale in comparison to the fact that Vladimir Putin has a ridiculous 88% approval rating... lol1 lol1 lol1

    These 5th column rallies claim that there are no fair elections. OK, so where are the opinion poll results showing the
    "massive" support for Navalny and other compradores? This is a very important detail. In NATO states opinion polls
    are routinely used to identify levels of support for parties and politicians. Voting results are usually close to opinion
    polls unless there is some big scandal. We have had in the past various NATO based pollsters showing that support
    for the liberasts is under 15%. Current polling including by the "pro-West" Levada Center confirm that there is no
    large base of support for Navalny, etc. Yet Navalny keeps on claiming he should be, in effect, the president of Russia.

    These SOB tried to repeated what happened in December 2011. The problem is that, Putin's support in Sep 2015 is much much higher than in Dec 2011.

    And 2011 failed so there is no reason for the 5th columnists to achieve anything in 2015.

    But they have to do something anyway, in order to receive money from the West.

    Russian Liberal Opposition - Page 6 563523_1000

    5th column propaganda in Russia about how bad Putin has been for Russia's economy. Laughing

    They took the nominal exchange rate and are spreading the routine lie that the GDP and
    incomes all took a proportional hit from the exchange rate change. Of course only idiots
    and liars would use dollars to "measure" these economic parameters.

    So the inflation rate is 16.5% and not 100%, which means that prices in Russia have not
    doubled. That means that the 33,278 ruble average income buys 16.5% less, which makes
    it more like 28,565 rubles. But wait, what is that I see, the income was 27,000 rubles in
    2012, the reference year for this "indictment of Putin" comparison. Oh my, so even with
    the higher inflation, the incomes have gone up enough to offset it!

    Please, retards, just give it up and move the f*ck out of Russia. Go suck Uncle Scam's
    schlong in New York or Los Angeles. Or move to London. Just get the your 5th column
    asses out of Russia.

    If intelligence had anything to do with wealth or power then explain George W Bush becoming president... a man who said with all seriousness that the vast majority of imports into the US come from outside the country....

    Intelligence will only get you so far... I know a lot of very intelligent people who have little drive and no ambition who are earning no where near as much as some people I know who just know how to earn money for nothing.

    Look at the number of rich men and women who left school at 15 or so...

    I have read that a lot of these people tend to do well because they don't fear failure... a school they would have been taught that failing or getting it wrong is bad... it is only bad if you don't learn anything from your mistakes.

    In life everything is a risk... doing nothing is the biggest risk as there is no return on that risk.
    Taking risks offers the chance of a good return... judgement of the risk benefit ratio can mean the best returns come from managed risk...

    We should make an edit to this and repost it online with explenation.

    The funny thing is, the 5th column in Russia cannot do even basic economic calculations.  Someone needs to bring forward to them that their economy isnt in USD amd even official data stipulates GDP drop is roughly 3.8% this year.  Which then would mean the actual calculation is done via PPP and not nominal like these morons think.

    It requires people with a willingness to accept objective facts and reality instead of wallowing rabid hate fantasy.
    But it would be nice to circle some of the items in that poster and show that they contradict the drivel being peddled by it.

    I will make a slight correction to "done via PPP". Actually the GDP deflator is a convolution of PPI and CPI. The PPP
    approach is when comparing different economies and not the same one. The GDP deflator uses domestic consumer
    and producer price inflation to adjust the summed GDP figure in nominal domestic currency prices. PPP is not an
    inflation related adjustment, it attempts to match different products and services in a given country and the reference
    country and then adjusts the nominal exchange based prices (it is only indirectly related to inflation, which impacts the
    long term, "structural", price differences).

    Here is my attempt at information to insert into a counter-poster:

    Russian CPI in 2013, 2014 and 2015: 6.48%, 11.36%, under 15.5% (the 5th column poster is lying)
    (source: http://www.inflation.eu/inflation-rates/russia/historic-inflation/cpi-inflation-russia-2015.aspx)

    So the cumulative inflation from the end of 2012 to the end of this year is under (1.0648*1.1136*1.155=1.3696 or 37%).
    The average income increased from 27,000 rubles to 33,278 rubles or 23.25%. So the real average income has fallen by
    under 13.75% and not 45% as claimed by the poster using dollar values.

    In contrast, the GDP grew in 1.3% in 2013 and 0.6% in 2014. It will fall about 3.8% in 2015. So we have
    (1.013*1.006*0.962=0.9804) 2% decline and not the 42% claimed by the poster.

    I would say Russian income earners have done pretty well considering the scale of the ruble devaluation
    and all the sanctions and NATO hate propaganda.

    This is the real data. The reality is that they are quite mediocre. Russia desperately need to create a solid economy, solve the chronic problems and develop away from an oil economy.
    From 2000 to 2012 would rate this attempt as 7/10 which is good but nothing great given the low starting point. From 2012 to 2015 I would give 5/10.

    He should be barred from all economic and political talk that is official.  Actually, I dont even know why they bother with the gaidar forums since the guy who found it was also a piece of shit.

    Rus gov isnt helping by just allowing such activity to freely happen.

    So essentially Kasyanav (Misha 2%) acquired money from Atlantic Councel members.  As you probably know why.

    Hopefully this will be the nail in the coffin and put an end to the Paranas party and such scum.
