Ukraine: American Top 1% Will One Day Face Similar Activism If They Do Not Awaken!

Vladimir, did you approve that exchange? 
No worries Viktor, the items have been neutered of any value.
Ah..... I should have known!

Does any of the following surprise you?

It really should't. Every nation on Earth has its Top 1% (ers). In the many cases countries are led by the privileged .01 percent their friends, cronies and facilitators. 

Experts estimate the cost of Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych’s new private residence at 75 – 100m dollars. For most of his career he was a public servant or parliament deputy, where his salary never exceeded 2000 US dollars per month.
The Ukrainian quest for democracy and economic affiliation away for Russia leadership has unclothed another such plutocrat who opted to work towards rending under the political control of Vladimir Putin in stead of enacting more democratic reforms so desired by his people.  

The entire property constitutes 140 hectares of valuable land which lies alongside the Dnieper river.

Finnish company Honka were in charge of construction on Yanukovych’s house. During one of his visits to Germany, the Ukrainian President himself praised the 

German specialists working on the site for the high quality of their work.

The price of the chandeliers in Viktor Yanukovych's new residence has shocked Ukrainians. In a country where 35% of the population live under poverty line, 
spending 100 000 dollars on each individual chandelier seems excessive, to say the least.

The new residence of president Viktor Yanukovych is decorated with imported 

natural marble, Italian crystal and precious woods.

Do you think for one second Right-wing plutocrats who back the GOP would not (figuratively) sit alongside people like Viktor Yanukovych.  

I am not inclined towards socialism in any sense, but I feel people around the world grow weary of what you are about to read and see. You have to know America has its upper-crust with all requisite privilege (Right and Left). 

We (the people) are growing tired of "eating the cake."

The phrase is commonly mis-attributed to
Enfin je me rappelai le pis-aller d’une grande princesse à qui l’on disait que les paysans n’avaient pas de pain, et qui répondit : Qu’ils mangent de la brioche.[2]
Finally I recalled the stopgap solution of a great princess who was told that the peasants had no bread, and who responded: "Let them eat brioche."

The Raw Story......

 Ukrainian leader flees and the people are given open scrutiny of how he lived.

Shocking opulence revealed as Ukraine leader flees home (via AFP)
A vast country estate, marble-lined mansions, a private golf course and zoo: the unimaginable luxury of the private residence of departed Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych was flung open Saturday for all to see. As parliament voted to oust Yanukovych…
