One of my friends is slightly obsessed with Soviet history, so she asked me to make her this plaque to hang in her apartment.

The plaque is approximately 18" in diameter, and hangs from a wall screw.

Costs about $10 in terms of primer, paint, and assorted wood, and the installation is a cinch.

Step 1: Find a template

To find a good pattern, I just Googled "hammer and sickle," and found this.  Then I just scaled and printed it out in Word.  Pretty straightforward I'd say.
Communism is not that bad. as an idea it heaven but if practice it will not work out well. ppl are different. the point of communism is equality in race, no religion, and have no rights to say what u want. but to improve it split the race and religion to a different place. give them enough food. that my seeing of communism. but i dont want to be one. even the creator of this saids he wasnt a communist.
tell the 100 million who were murdered by Mao,Stalin,Pol Pot, and Castro that communism isn't that bad. It always amazes me how ignorant that leftists are.
Try telling this "Communism is not that bad" to dozens of nations that had the misfortune of living under different communist regimes all over the world.
an interesting addition to this would to be to add leds to the bad of it, since it stands off from the wall it would give it a very nice back glow effect :)
wow i have a german coat wore it out got attacked by a liltle mexion boy wow brought that back
