Building up self-esteem in Russia is not an easy task. They have limited personal control over themselves, and many things currently that prevents such building blocks that result in personal self-esteem. The recent protests and demonstrations, however, could provide some self-esteem , but that is a collective effort and not a personal one.
I do not think you have been to Russia to see what they are up against.
I was there last year, but not in the Moscow.

My point is that little, personal projects are what build self esteem.

There are problems with such large collective actions. They may effect large changes, but the ones necessary to self-esteem are individual.

Not many can become great symphonic players, but building a few instruments and enjoying them on the long winter evenings with a few friends ... well ... it feeds the person. It strengthens him far more than getting blitzed and killing intellect with vodka ... or waiting for grand systemic changes.

I have. But still, in russia the population is declining, and it will continue to do as it currently is as noted in my post.
I disagree with our population reduction. Americans are always inventing new products that require new factories and new work forces. It is called social and technical evolution (my term).
AND, we can not exterminate people or eat them, as that is unethical. LOL. But we could reduce non-productive illegals, and put those chronic welfare people on buses each day to farms to work, which farmers could offer fair wages, of which could be supplemented by government to provide a living wage. It would be cheaper than a total welfare hand-out and could increase food production, etc. Those who are too lazy would be kicked out of the work program and off the welfare roles. These fools would bear their own responsibily to survive. Which would probably be crime. Which is what they are probably involved in now, while collecting their welfare checks and other free benefits.
But the the issue is Russia's problems, and they are real and serious.
Very true, and my heart bleeds for them.

Our solutions will not come from greater meanness or exclusion.

One would be to be penalize our companies that send manufacturing out of the country by taxing them until all profitability from such action is lost. Another is to limit foreign "investment" in the US. Protectionist? Somewhat, but necessary. Currently, about $7 trillions in US wealth is hidden overseas using the "Double Irish" loopholes in our tax codes. These must be closed.

We can care for our needy if this is done, and reduce their number.

The US's problems are not the same as Russia's, this certainly is true.

haha!! I suggest that you get some of those Middle east "Lubricated oiled" condoms you use on your sheep and camels, and stuff yourself with them. Then, your Middle eastern oil would have some personal value to you.
I realize you are quite backwards, still living in the 7th. century, but any worthless fool such as you should relize times have changed a little since 1945. 68 years in fact. Haha.
The world oil market, for some reason, is just not getting much oil from Iran. I guess that country is not too important, huh !

Bringing back our industries is good. But we must provide the financial "incentive" for them to do so. It was our government regulations, high taxes, restrictions and everything else our government could do, that forced them out to begin with. I agree with limited foreign investment.

No "incentives" required. Simply close loopholes.

While some regulations have developed. Taxes, both personal and corporate are far lower than they were, say, in the early '60s and the economy was booming at the time. It is merely greed that uses the "Double Irish", much of it fraudulent as well.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Double_Irish

Multinationalism was allowed an "incentive" to encourage rich corporations to assist 2nd world Nations to develop, and to strengthen alliances during the cold war. That's what it started as, and it worked grandly in most cases. It is no longer necessary and, with the directions it has taken, is actually counterproductive domestically. This combined with the imposed feduciary responsibilities of corporate officer, not to their employees or customer and suppliers, but to faceless shareholders has created a climate of enforced greed and social and ecological irresponsibility not seen since the deforestations by the great empires of the past, and the subsequent erosion and desertifications of the Mideast and North Africa.

Unrestrained capitalism is parasitic, and as destructive as locust.

There are some Laws on the books that impede honest business to no good purpose, but not most.

In general the U.S owes a huge deal of it's technology creation to Slavic people.
The United States IS Slavic people, Germanic people, Semitic people, Celtic people, Asian people, African people, Aboriginal people, etc.

For the most part, the people of the USA have mentally and ethically evolved beyond tribalism. Generally, we are happy and friendly mutts.

Sadly, there are some who just can't seem to get this, and teach their children their regressive views.

The Pawling dude's real name is Matt. He is quite insane. He is an admitted neo-nazi piece of crap. Best to ignore him. He thrives on attention. He has other nicks as well. He is quite the psychopath.

So now you are bringing the "blame Bush" demonstrations into the play, which is off topic, implying that Bush is a psychopath.

Although I have many responses , I will not do so. Shallow thinking is not my cup of tea. But I will state as where my position is for your personal understanding, that Obummer has been in office for over four years now, and our debt has more than tripled since that time, and he has done more damage to our country than any other president in our history.
And now back to the topic in hand.

Those weren't "blame Bush" rallies. That was just the video creator's editorializing..

I was referring to the music, which dates to the Viet Nam era, and the general anti-War/pro Peace gatherings.

The President is simply doing what the Federal Government has done since it was formed ... consolidating State debt and deficits onto itself. Standard Treasury doctrine that has worked for two centuries.

The beauty of those rallies is that they are the true fruit of the teachings of Yeshua, not christendom, which has always suppressed such actions. What began as the very small seeds of ideas has grown to a mighty tree that has nothing to do with institutions, but the hearts and vision of individuals. We have manifested a massive population of individuals that consider certain values so important that they come together to peacefully express them in myriad ways. Visions of a world in which justice, inclusion and kindness rule.

We aren't there yet, but the yeast is spreading and leavening the loaf.

The massive diversity of individuals brought together, motivated by a vision and a belief in it's possibility.

The US gets most of it's oil from Canada.

See a dark conspiracy there?

Oil is a commodity. Somebody wants to sell it. Somebody else want to buy it. A simple business deal.

Europe is FAR more dependent upon Mideastern and North African oil than the USA.

By the middle of the next decade (an possibly sooner) the US will not need to purchase oil from the mideast.
Are you really that dumb? No one in Washington cares who gets the oil. They like the Saudis even though they are far more extreme than either Hussein or Assad not because of who gets the oil... but because of who pumps it out of the ground.

That is what the oil companies pay both political parties in Washington off for.

Governments who are nationalist and throw the western oil companies out...

Saudis on the other hand are free to hijack airplanes and fly them into buildings in New York with no threat whatsoever to the Saudi kingdom. Washington is their puppet.

You open with Agrumentum ad Hominem, then pivot immediately to the Straw Man Fallacy?
