00 Thank You Grandpa for the Victory. 27.07.14

00 my heroes. poklonnaya gora. 27.07.14

______________________________

Спасибо вам… THANK YOU for crushing the fascist snakes (and their collaborationist running dogs)… THANK YOU for stopping the Nazi murderers… THANK YOU for giving us a peaceful world to grow up in.

THANK YOU… СПАСИБО ВАМ…

I can’t say it often enough or loud enough… if you know a World War II vet from any of the countries of the Anti-Hitler Coalition, honour them… they saved us from a long nasty fascist night. They’re our heroes… NOT Ronald Reagan… NOT Rush Limbaugh… NOT Clint Eastwood… NOT Bill O’Reilly… NOT Richard Cheney… NOT Paul Ryan… NOT Willard Romney… all of whom avoided combat service (some were gutless cowards who avoided military duty altogether).

Respect those who earned respect… as for the others… kiss my ass…

THANK YOU, GRANDPA, FOR THE VICTORY…

Now, that’s WORTHY of respect and honour…

12 July 2014. A Blast from the Past: Pottsy the Cop

00 pottsy the cop. 12.07.14

______________________________

I was looking around the web for ANYTHING on Pottsy the Cop… I remember reading it in the News when I was a kid. It was never acerbic… it was never dismissive… it was never sarcastic. Pottsy was an ordinary beat cop like you’d see on the street (most of ‘em are gone now, replaced by car-borne coppers). One strip I seem to remember showed Pottsy playing pinball, he was winning big, then… you guessed it… TILT! In another, the Potts (believe it or not) was part of the PAL (Police Athletic League) helping kids. Now, that was a cartoon! No, I’m not one of those people nostalgic for the “good old days”… but I’m not one of those who think that the old days were “all wet”… neither attitude is healthy.

I had to get away from the war for a post or two… the last image that I posted really shook me. Don’t forget the suffering people of Novorossiya… the Uniate/schismatical junta soaks itself in their blood. It’s too much at times, though… it can get depressing and it tends to wear away one’s human feelings. I’ve lost all compassion for the junta and for its Uniate/schismatical amen corner. I can see why war correspondents drink so much…

1 June was International Children’s Day!

00 international children's day. Krasnoyarsk. 12.06.14

People taking part in the Ninth “Childhood City” carnival in central Krasnoyarsk on 1 June 2014. Thousands of children, their relatives, and teachers took part in the procession to demonstrate suits, styles, dances, and folklore of different regions of the world on International Children’s Day.

In Moscow, the KPRF organised fun for kids from orphanages, children from poor families, and disabled kids. Y’know, those Reds gave the kids… CANDY (I hope that they gave out “Birds’ Milk”… that’s GOOD EATS)! I’d be glad to stand with such decent folks any day of the week. Call me a “commie”… that’s OK… it means that I give a shit and that I “wanna” do good.

This is an old-school Red holiday that refused to die out. Good on the folks who kept such sweet (literally) Sov traditions alive.
