What is Khrushchev's phrase "metal eaters" in Russian?
For the rest of you, that's what he called the Military-Industrial
Complex when he wanted to divert the enormous resources they devoured
to consumer goods.
I guessed 'metved' but Google returns nothing useful.
I was wondering which of us were having a brain fart. ;)
"Additionally as a security officer, I carry a gun to protect
government officials but my life isn't worth protecting at home
in their eyes." Dick Anthony Heller
"I am for doing good to the poor, but I differ in opinion of the
means. I think the best way of doing good to the poor, is not
making them easy in poverty, but leading or driving them out of
it. In my youth I travelled much, and I observed in different
countries, that the more public provisions were made for the
poor the less they provided for themselves, and of course became
poorer. And, on the contrary, the less was done for them, the
more they did for themselves, and became richer." -- Benjamin
Franklin, /The Encouragement of Idleness/, 1766
