So, the elections were held recently, everything in the country was quiet and almost calm, but now we can sum up the first results of what we have chosen here. And what can you expect next from such a choice.
I will say right away that this semi-carnival show with elections did not look to me at all, primarily because of the frankly obscene direction. The fact that the heroic ministers would not go to the Duma to think was clear and understandable from the beginning for sober people. But those who think out of their heads is one thing, and the electorate, who eats and watches the first channel, is another thing. And there is more of him, the electorate.
When Lavrov, Shoigu and the chief covid fighter Protsenko handed over their mandates, I don’t understand who, everything, in general, became clear and understandable. Farce - it is farce in Africa. But it is clear that many people want to sit warmly and tasty in the State Duma, with benefits and a salary of half a million, and there are not enough places for everyone. And in order not to bring God, from such a pie who has not bitten off an extra one, you have to dodge.
However, let all this be on the conscience of the aforementioned gentlemen, that is, sink into history... It makes sense for the electorate to analyze their actions in front of the ballot boxes on election days.
However, now we are not talking about the State Duma. There are deputies not only there, and our existence in the localities depends on them no less than on the legislative drafting of the Duma.
This is what is now happening in the capital of the Black Earth Region, nothing but insanity can not be called, and the language does not turn. Here, too, elections were held, as a result of which people sat in the seats of the deputies. Different people, some have already wiped the chairs, because in fact they do not get up, there are also new ones. And these people have to work in their places ... for what? Or for whom?
Very interesting question.
Events have shown that the Voronezh deputies have their own masters. And these owners are not voters at all. Voters are just a dumb herd that must pay from their own pockets for the whims of the masters of life. And nothing else.
The bottom line is this: imagine just such an interesting situation as a visit to the City Council of the Masters. In our case, it is PJSC “Quadra - Power Generation”, known in half of Russia for its frankly swinish attitude towards consumers, and LLC “RVK-Voronezh” (formerly “Vodokanal”).
And with a blue eye, the Hosts declare to the deputies: so, guys, we need to raise rates by 10%. How you will do this, we are not interested. And we do not care that, according to the law, it is possible to increase by 5%. We need money. So, be so kind as to provide them with an influx.
“Quadra - Power Generation” last year just staged a financial terror, raising payments for heat to the level of Ukraine. And to numerous complaints, a whole staff of "specialists" gave universal answers, according to which the consumers themselves were to blame for the huge payments. Not insulated houses, wrong meters, crooked pipes - in general, in "Quadra" all the d'Artagnans, and around - you understand what.
As a result, some deputies from one very well-known party announced that they had been asked to raise tariffs ... by the voters!
In general, each city has its own Tereshkova!
The vote on this issue turned into yet another farce.
10 deputies did not come to the meeting at all. It is difficult to say what reasons they will cover, but they did not come. Solving the problems of city residents is not for them. There is no need to ask questions to the two deputies-doctors, who are not up to meetings now. The rest is a question ...
2 deputies “abstained”. Such "abstaining" should be deprived of mandates in general. And in general, this is "my business side" - this is not for situations when it is necessary to make decisions.
20 deputies normally and cheerfully approved the increase in tariffs by 9,1%. It is clear what kind of people they are, I leave the epithets aside. United Russia all as one.
4 (four) people voted against. They are already known in the city by name, these are two representatives of the Communist Party and two from the SR.
Here is the result.
By the way, one local media tried to ask questions of the deputies who voted in favor. Out of 20 people, ONE answered normally. All United Russia members cowardly turned off their phones. The indicator, however ...
We here think that the deputies for whom we vote are kind of like our representatives in the legislative branch, and who should serve with their lawmaking for our benefit. But no. They are servants of capital, whose main task is to squeeze as much money out of us as possible.
I talked with another old acquaintance of mine from this group of 20 people. By the way, we contacted pretty well during my Donbas operations and even did one big deal with the filtration unit.
And what did I hear when I asked a couple of questions? Whining about the fact that “everything is decided in Moscow”, “as we were told, so we did”, “what we can do here - nothing at all” and stuff like that.
The question of what the devil then they all climbed into the deputies remained watered with tears, but without an answer.
Meanwhile, the Control and Accounts Chamber of Voronezh was unable to prepare an opinion on this issue, since no economic justification for the proposed tariff increase was presented. It's just, “Our mines are not producing much gold. More gold is needed, ”and that's it.
And further. The content of the deputies of the current convocation is increased by 21 million rubles, or more than 15 percent. If only the incomes of the city residents grew the same, but no. Demonstrated steady growth in the opposite direction. That is, a reduction in income.
It turns out that parasites, deputies who protect the interests of their owners, cost taxpayers more and more.
Nonsense: maintenance at your own expense of those who rob you. Perhaps only very overdeveloped countries from the former USSR and even Africa can boast of this.
What about koviditch? Oh, and with him complete order.
What the authorities are up to is already simply affectionate.
Shutting down everything you can reach is the only response. Like an amoeba. And at the same time, why waste time on trifles, reduce by a third the number of vehicles going on the line.
Of course, how can people think of such a moment as city transport, who observe buses exclusively in the window of official transport? Or personal?
The delusional nature of antiquated measures is obvious. People get infected not in cafes or museums, not in the huge premises of Leroy Merlin or Castorama (closed), but in crowded public transport. This has been written and said hundreds and thousands of times, but the mayor and his assistants do not care deeply about it.
In general, the modern government in cities (I suspect that in other localities is no better) demonstrates a complete inability to do something meaningful.
Another example. The largest shopping center within the city. "Gallery Chizhov". Belongs to State Duma Deputy Sergei Chizhov, of course, United Russia.
The list of shops that were allowed to work is very funny. There, among other types of pharmacies and grocery stores, “suddenly” there were stores such as Befree, Gloria Jeans, Love republic, Zarina, L'Etoile and other retail establishments in the clothing line.
No, undoubtedly, clothes are also needed, despite the pandemic dances. It is surprising why there is not a single shoe store on the allowed list. But this is so, on the verge of a joke. Evil tongues on social media claim that if you, as a business owner, have access to the body of the mayor or (even better) the governor, then you will not have a problem. They will be allowed to work.
When the Voronezh airport announced an advertising campaign "why sit here, go to the sea", at first it seemed like a bad joke of stupid managers. However, given that the travel agencies were not closed immediately, the residents got the idea. And by the beginning of the Loch Down carnival, all tickets for the southern direction were sold out.
I have only one word for that - idiocy.
Close shops, markets, cafes, cinemas, museums and everything else, ban sports competitions - and allow movement around the country. And a flight abroad. How lovely!
If I understood correctly Mr. Peskov (who broadcasts from the Kremlin), then our government is not just advocating for the maximum number of infected people in the country, it is tirelessly working to ensure that their number increases as rapidly as possible.
For comparison, I will cite Israel as an example. Our visitor and author Alexander Privalov told me in detail how they fought. The first thing they did was to close the entrance and exit. Just like it was done in China, where today the situation is just fine. The internet is full of stories from the Russians who live there. Yes, they will not get to Russia soon, but everyone writes that there are a minimum of cases.
So, closing the borders. This is a normal course to ensure that there is no influx of other strains. Then there is everything else: vaccinations, medications, and so on.
By the way, when the third wave was defeated in Israel, the borders were opened and the fourth immediately began, because new strains were immediately brought in from Europe. And again, the borders were closed, and again the situation is straightened out.
And we have? And in the midst of the deployment of the Indian strain, we proudly announced an increase in the number of flights to India. And during the lock-down period with true downism, they are allowed to fly in and out where it is very easy to get infected.
Oh, yes, of course, they observe the measures there ... As in the Crimea, where my acquaintances quickly flew away. To the sea. They were very indignant that they had taken PCR there. The money was very sorry. But the trouble is, having left on the 23rd, I had to return a little earlier than planned. On the 25th, all three already had a covid.
The fact that in the Crimea, Sochi, Emirates, Turkey and Egypt, those who left will acquire very valuable baggage in terms of viruses - it is possible not to guess. The fact that our authorities encourage this in every possible way is also a fact.
A strange sensation is created.
It is possible to travel, increasing the possibility of infection.
It is possible to move in crowded vehicles and visiting overcrowded clinics, where you have to stand in line for hours, thereby increasing the possibility of infection. Even necessary.
It’s impossible to work in the store, being vaccinated, wearing a mask and gloves, keeping a distance. This is deadly.
In general, as the dynamics of the spread of coronavirus in Russia shows, all these measures will not bring any result, since they are stupid and absurd. A hairdresser with three chairs is no worse than a narrow corridor in a polyclinic, where fifty people are sitting. And a crowded bus at rush hour is more dangerous than the vendors in the market.
But to understand this, you need to be able to think and analyze. Alas, for some reason these functions are not available to our authorities.
One gets the impression that our leaders, from the lowest to the highest, have set one goal: to minimize the population in the country and to minimize the amount of money in this population. Which is almost the same thing.
As an option, they are showing us today with what pleasure the representatives of the Asian republics go to the country and with what willingness they work for less money, bringing superprofits and super-savings to the business owners.
Is the Dulles Plan 3 in action? Perhaps it seems. Yes, not without the help of slightly stupid representatives of the electorate, who are complicit in the spread of the virus with their travels.
But there is less and less understanding of what is happening day by day. More precisely, there is an understanding that everything should have been different from what is happening here. But in the end, we have the power that we deserve, because we first chose it, and now no one will even try to recall the same ones fundamentally under the “people's representatives” who have lost their understanding of the situation.
Apparently they deserve it.
P.S. Dear readers, it would be interesting if you share your observations about life in your cities. Because if Voronezh is such an exception, maybe it really should be hit with a nuclear bomb? There are almost none of ours here ...
When the country is ashamed. Maybe, after all, fuck around Voronezh?
