Your granfather's spoke russian correct ?
and the war in 1941 was was not a russian revolution ...... That would
be 1917 the bolshevik revolution
if my poor memory severs me correct......
The point is you made a crack about americans not wanting to look at
there british roots in the english
launauge. So I say you should not look at the bolshevik's in your
launguage as any one knows not to
fight russia in the winter.... As you will soon freeze to death.......
and you have railroads that our off gauge :)
You see Canadians our more british than americans .. They have the queen
in there national anthem/ on there money
and we don't and its for a good reason.... we actualy want to sing our
national anthem and our money is worth 40% more than therse :)
And if you think im being a nationalist then your wrong.... As in 30
years china will be the next world power.
Why is that you ask ??? Because there people will work for free and be
happy as they run our industury into the ground !!!
If you don't believe me just turn over your favorite pot .. Made in
To all the brits, kunnucks, Chinease on this list please over look me :)
