The ruble is at a two-year high.

In a very thin market. If there isn\'t a lot of money being traded, even a regime as poor as Russia\'s can afford to spend a bit of foreign currency to make the ruble look artificially valuable.

The pitiful Russian GDP is just the bottom-line indicator of a country mired in corruption and incompetence. That\'s probably historical to the culture and also a legacy of communism.

Once crooks have got into power, they enrich themselves rather than the country they are ripping off. There\'s nothing peculiarly Russian about that. Since Communism believed in the \"leading role of the party\" it was committed to oligarchy rather than democracy, and the transition from oligarch to kleptocrat is an easy one.

> It\'s historical of all governments.

Lunatic right-wingers and libertarians do like to think that. Governments aren\'t necessarily corrupt and incompetent - there may not have been one that was entirely honest and perfectly competent, but quite a few have come close enough to perform pretty well. John Doe wouldn\'t have voted for any of them.

> Take a look at our recent Supreme Court decision in Bostock v. Clayton County.

It seems to be perfectly sensible. We can guess that John Doe is homophobic, and doesn\'t like it,

China\'s per-capita GDP is even lower. Cuba is yet lower. Viet Nam barely moves the needle.

https://www.worldometers.info/gdp/gdp-per-capita/

Apparently that\'s just dividing the GDP by the number of citizens, not counting illegal invaders.

The US has imported cheap foreign workers since it was first established. Early on some of them were slaves. Employers have never paid much attention to whether they were legal residents.
Calling them \"invaders\" is bizarre. \"Guest workers\" comes closer to the mark. There aren\'t anything like enough of them to make much difference to the US GDP-per-capita.

https://economics.princeton.edu/working-papers/top-wealth-in-america-new-estimates-and-implications-for-taxing-the-rich/

Here in America...

\"The top 1% holds nearly as much wealth as the bottom 90% and the \"P90-99\" class.\"

It isn\'t doing the country any good.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Spirit_Level_(book)

Of course this will go over John Doe\'s head . He obviously doesn\'t believe anything that he can\'t understand, and he obviously understands very little.. He seems to see this as him being sceptical, but in reality he\'s just being exceptionally stupid.

CBS News video...

https://youtu.be/OjFOSSTbDpo

\"President Biden pledges $150 million for military aid in Ukraine\"

Meanwhile in the comment section...

\"I\'m so upset that no one seems to care about the US citizens.\"

\"The same people cheering for this are the same people who swore up and down
that we could not afford 8 billion to secure THIS nation\'s own border.\"

\"This is stupid...., let other countries help. We don’t need war w Russia
.... especially nuclear.\"

\"What[] about money to help Americans with sky rocketed inflation of gas,
food, and everyday essentials?\"

\"This is the biggest transfer of wealth I’ve ever seen, soon enough we’ll be
left with nothing!\"

\"Only $150,000,000.00? Looks like we are finally running out of money to
sink into this Ukraine lost cause.\"

So it\'s not just Fox News viewers.

And in other news... \"Russia’s defense ministry on Saturday said it had
destroyed a large stockpile of military equipment from the United States and
European countries\"

Doesn\'t matter! The military-industrial complex, its stockholders, and its
bribe takers, make out like bandits at taxpayers\' expense no matter how
wasteful.

No. Just Fox News viewers who watch CBS as well. Fox News hasn\'t got a monopoly of idiot viewers - they do strive to collect as many as posslble but idiots are ubiquitous. John Doe is free to collect as many moronic reactions as he likes, but they are still reactions from the moronic minority.

> And in other news... \"Russia’s defense ministry on Saturday said it had destroyed a large stockpile of military equipment from the United States and European countries\"

As it would, even if it hadn\'t. The Ukraine is also busy destroying as much Russian military equipment as it can get at. That\'s how war is waged,

> Doesn\'t matter! The military-industrial complex, its stockholders, and its bribe takers, make out like bandits at taxpayers\' expense no matter how wasteful.

War is wasteful. John Doe might not be aware of this, but that particular insight goes back to about 500 BC.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Art_of_War

The Russian military industrial complex is doing at least as well - probably better since their output is getting chewed up on a even larger scale. Attack chews through military equipment even faster than defense.

John Doe is being a classic troll here. He hasn\'t bothered to repost any of I what I posted, or any explanation of why it upset him - I do tend to post comments that suggest that he gets thing wrong - but he has merely asserted a proposition which he\'d expect me to find insulting.

This is what trolls do. I do find most of John Doe\'s posts objectionable, but when I object to them I do at least point out what he has got wrong, and why that particular. assertion is objectionable.

If he ever got anything right, I wouldn\'t post an objection to that particular post. I do ignore some of his posts which are so obviously silly that it would be a waste of bandwidth to point it out, but he does get a lot of stuff wrong in objectionable ways.

A troll like him calling other people trolls is one of them.

Hey SNIPPERMAN, here is a definition of a troll:

In internet slang, a troll is a person who posts inflammatory, insincere, digressive,[1] extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community (such as social media (Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, etc.), a newsgroup, forum, chat room, online video game, or blog), with the intent of provoking readers into displaying emotional responses,[2] or manipulating others\' perception.

That fits you to a TEE when you post documented lies about others, especially me, including blatant name-calling.

You do like to claim that I\'ve posted lies about you, but you don\'t bother to cite whatever it is I\'ve posted that you like to think is a lie.

You do seem to think that my comments about your claim to be licensed to pilot aircraft - an implausible claim based on the stupidity of your posts here - constitute lies, but I\'m afraid that it is your vanity that is doing the talking here.

Your minders would be well advised to keep you out of reach a bicycle, let alone anything as potentially destructive as a car or an aircraft.

Admittedly you might be posing as complete idiot with the intention of provoking readers into displaying emotional reactions, which would make you a troll, but my reactions are strictly rational, though I don\'t shy away from making rational points that aren\'t all that complimentary.
