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…

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.

The Delije, the organised supporters of Red Star Belgrade strut their stuff to support Russia and the Ukrainian patriots fighting the fascists. By the way, backers of Red Star and Olympiakos have developed a deep bond. Fans of both teams call themselves “Orthodox Brothers”. Many times, Red Star supporters attend Olympiakos matches, especially when they play their biggest rival, Panathinaikos FC. In recent years, the “Orthodox Brothers” have included supporters of Spartak Moscow. This, too, in its humble way incarnates the Orthosphere. Never despise ANY of its manifestations. Serbia’s 100 percent behind Russia and Novorossiya! To hell with the politicians, talking heads, and intellectuals… the common folk are solid. They sense that payback for ’99 is in the wind… and, never forget, payback is always a mutha…
