Glorious country of Kazakhstan! We have a rich culture of poor people and poor culture of rich people. Clever word play or sad reality? I guess it’s for God to know, for us to find out. Where else you can see a car with blue government plates, rolling around pimp’d out on chrome wheels. And members of National Security: speeding way over the limit, in a foreign whip, with plates on that reads “007 NS”. Fuckin’ hysterical! Seriously, James Bond can go fuck himself! But most incredible to observe is how swollen government officials (servants of the people) rolling out with a personal driver in $100 000 vehicles. When their official salaries are like, I don’t know, 200 000 KZT. Do your math. I did. Not fuckin’ possible! Plus, they live in houses that worth so much, that you can purchase an island in Philippines or some place else. I mean, do you monitor real estate prices in our country? They are, if put it mildly, ridiculous.
I once worked for this foreign consulting firm that had a contract with our government. Before we would go to any meetings with government officials, we’d always be picked up by very sharp, NS looking individuals, who’d give us a detailed “break down on today’s agenda”. They will clearly define what shall be said and what shall not. And from that point on, anywhere you go, you’d be under constant surveillance. All reports checked, censored and edited. Whole process is like a theatre rehearsal. You can literally smell how fake it all is.
Funny observation. Business men and politicians from overseas are always knit and most of the time in a very good shape. Ours are more like: “Birthday balloons lookin’ motherfuckez”, yeah, tell’em; “Italian spaghetti goonz lookin’ motherfuckez”, go’head, tell’em; “Alien cocoons lookin’ motherfuckez”, tell’em; “Feed me with a golden spoon lookin’ motherfuckez”, tell’em; “Bigger than a Moon lookin’ motherfuckez,” tell’em; “If I run, I get tired soon lookin’ motherfuckez”, tell’em; “Three meals before the noon lookin’ motherfuckez”, tell’em; “Subject for a gloom lookin’ motherfuckez”, tell’em; “So fat, I’m about to boom lookin’ motherfuckez”, tell’em… I think you get my point.
I don’t wanna playa hate on theze fat punk asses. As a man, I can relate, you know. You gotta do what you gotta do to provide for yourself and your family. I get it. But it’s been 20 years, man. Enough is enough. My problem is that I don’t see any convincing attempts from their side to make things better. They just keep fucking up! The one direction that might take positive implications, in my opinion, is EurAsEC. I don’t know how I feel about yet. But my hopes are for the best and preparations… you know. I just hope that members of this union will treat each other as partners and help each other to overcome current global problems and create what’s missing. And hope that instead of being “little bitch of the West” we won’t become “Russia’s little bitch”, uknowhadImsayin’.
In one of my last year blogs I mentioned how we pay our electricity bills to foreign energy corporations. See, it’s not like they built our infrastructure for us and now we owe them. That is actually the case in many other foreign countries. Corporations build you shit, thus you give them your shit in return. But they just came and bought it. And we were dumb enough to sell it. Our shit was build by GULAG prisoners and the rest of them unfortunate bastards. And now we termed these corporations “monopolists” and no one can fuck with them. Really, no one?
Also, I’m sick and tired of people comparing us to Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore and other Asian freaking miracles. Their success is a direct result of market integrations both ways. Where shit comes in and shit goes out. In our case shit only goes out. Resources go out. Revenues from selling recourses go out as well. I don’t think they ever get in. Probably just transferred from one offshore account to another. Why bother, right? In addition to that we don’t really produce anything valuable to offer. But we don’t have to. Why don’t just boost farming and agriculture to provide our huge and heavily populated neighbors (Russia, China, Europe, Middle East) with good quality milk, meat, honey, all sort of grain and stuff. I mean, how many times I heard Astana bragging about record amount of bread harvested last year. But they couldn’t neither export it nor store it properly. Where is it now? Just left it to rotten. What a shame! Kazakhs say: “Бұл обал ғой!”
Well, that would be it for today’s shit talking rebellion,
Peace to your homes!
