11 October 2014. The Mother-Motherland Calls! Four Generations of Courage…

00 Four Generations of Courage. 11.10.14

______________________________

This requires no commentary. Another invader has tried to put their hands around Holy Rus’ neck. It shall fail… as all invaders failed in the end. In this case, the Americans won’t back their neo-Nazi protegés in the Ukraine… there’s nothing left in the larder… they spent it all on bootless land wars in South Asia and in insane tax giveaways to the Affluent Effluent. It’s as it always has been… all those who march on Russia will be put to death. The Banderovtsy Uniate filth will not prevail…

RUSSIANS FORWARD!

Stop, pause, and remember the dead… if you’re a believer, light a candle and pray for the dead… if you’re a secular, stop, pause, and reflect on what this all means for us. We all stand mute before the Mystery of Death. It’s the one common thread in all of our lives… have a care and REMEMBER…

6 September 2014. Some of My Favourite Things… Joan Rivers is Dead… One Gutsy Lady

00 Joan Rivers. 06.09.14

______________________________

Today, Joan Rivers, a gutsy gal if there ever was such, died. She was strong, outspoken, and assertive… her humour was usually blunt, occasionally, offensively so, but in a good way… people offended by humour are usually taking themselves too seriously. Rivers wasn’t merely a strong person; she was a strong woman. She was brash, in-your-face, female but not ‘feminine’, and aggressively Jewish. She took the outsider position, standing up from that position to critique the strong and the powerful. Sure, she wasn’t always politically correct… Rivers not only used the word “tranny”, which many find offensive, but she used it (in 2014) to describe Michelle Obama, and then doubled down, defending herself with her usual gusto and attacking political correctness itself. For fifty years, she spoke truth to power, and managed to end with a punchline. Thank you, Joan. Rest in Chutzpah.
