More aphorisms

Narrow-minded can live in great style.
The highest profit is from deals with conscience.
The most profitable work is to shovel up money.

It is not scary to sink swimming in luxury.
Russian cars are like macaroni without sauce: you can eat it but still something is missing.
Foreign car for Russian man is like pedigree mastiff: good and strong but the price is biting.
Some Russian deputies are like haughty turkey cocks: much pomposity, little brains.
The main problem of Russian army – “Who are we fighting for?”

Russian generals are now fighting not for Russian land but for stars.
If everybody in Russia observes laws and does not take bribes life here would be impossible.
