The Wall

“Mr Putin , rebuild this wall” Obama.

I was in Berlin in June ‘89 as part of an exchange program when I was in college. We got to see East and West Berlin divided by the wall. The difference between the two was night and day. We spent a day in East Berlin and I got to see my first taste of communism… long lines at stores with empty shelves, poor products, unhappy people, people and families divided. The wall was everywhere, Checkpoint Charlie, searches, patrols with guns and guns, barges that had to wait an hour to pass on to the West.

I think I really began to be a conservative after that trip.

    When did Obama say that? And when did Putin become chancellor of Germany? And when did random comments from Hot Air become blog posts for you?

    I wonder what the people who lived in East Germany behind that wall think about you comparing the United States to a communist country.

  2. Ryan,

    Obama didn’t say that. It’s called “satire”, Ryan.

    Many people who have lived under fascist communists (Dr. Orly Taitz is an example) clearly recognize what the Democrat[ic Socialist Communist] Party is doing to this country.

    I was in Russia in 1987 just as Gorbachev was beginning the process of Glastnost and Perestroika. I was a high school student and my high school teacher had organizaed the trip through, what I believe now to be a communist front organization. We attended Communist Party meeting in Kenmore Square in Boston, solicited propaganda from the Soviet Embassy (they were only too happy to oblige) and we were routed around by Party officials to give the appearance that everything was grand.

    Summary: What a shit hole that place was (Moscow especially). Safe, but a poverty stricken shithole none-the-less.
