11 October 2011. Have a Snort and Smile! “Vanya Banya” Opens Up His Mouth on “Orthodox Forum”… Inserts Foot Full-Length

The Foe Shall NOT Escape the People’s Revenge!

Don’t let them scare you! Stay strong!

A kind friend of mine informed me of some gaseous dezinformatsiya being peddled by one “Vanya Banya” (I know their real name… but let’s be kind) on the Orthodox Forum. I usually don’t reply to ridiculous charges (if I did so, this shop would do NOTHING else)… but do take a care, kids. They’re desperate, and the Syosset/SVS commandos have never been subtle or discerning sorts. The contents of the post prove that they have no solid info… they’re looking for people to lose their heads and make mistakes. Just be silent… lie doggo… and they’ll kick the wrong people, just you wait. I’m not hoping for such… but that’s what they do, they’ve done it for years. Bishop Job of Happy Memory said so, remember? My informants KNOW that I’d NEVER rat them out (and that’s what driving Lyonyo and Fathausen (and their claque) crazy). It’s going to get MUCH worse in the immediate short-term… please, be careful. TRUST NO ONE. PLEASE. Until it’s over…

Have a smile… Harry the Hairy Ape Man

******

As Bob Czech told me many moons ago, “The harpoon hit home, otherwise they wouldn’t be bitchin'”. SMILE. Be HAPPY warriors… that’s what really riles ’em. They’re like Harry the Hairy Ape Man in the old Ray Stevens song. THEY CAN’T HURT YOU. Pass me the jug… I need a snort, and so do you. The Sobor IS coming up, isn’t it?

******

Remember… Sir Harry wrote this song after his one-and-only son was killed in World War One…

******

“Let your hearts be strong… Keep right on until the end of the road, keep right on ’til the end”… as Sir Harry Lauder said. WE CAN DO IT. The Lord loves us and won’t abandon us… don’t let them get you down. Fight, yes… but not with hatred… with love for our heritage, with love for our kids, and with love for Christ’s Church. Now, THAT’S worth fighting for…

It’s time to lift a glass and cheer! Whether our people came from Zakarpatya or Zaporozhya or the Urals or the Dalny Vostok, we’re ONE people, ONE in faith, ONE in soul, and ONE in determination, despite our many detail differences. The Westerners only look at the surface, they see our differences only, so, they hold us in contempt… they find out the truth when they come sword in hand. The Teutonic Knights found out… the Polish Szlachta found out… Karl XII the Swede found out… Napoleon found out… Hitler found out. No doubt, the American “democratisers” will find out too… if they don’t pull back in time, that is. No one has ever conquered us from the West… no one.

This is an expression of our culture and cultures…. many, yet one… varied, yet united. That’s the way it is.

11 October 2011. Here’s the REAL Cost of “Austerity”… It DOESN’T Affect the McMansions…

Do you want to know the REAL cost of “austerity” here and abroad? Click here and here. Our kids and our older folks are suffering so the Five Percenters can get the lowest tax rates for the affluent in the developed world. THIS is the bill for the “Tea Party”… and do note who’s paying it. It’s NOT the people getting the benefits of it all! If this doesn’t prove to you that all “conservative” Neoliberal politicians in all countries are godless soulless brutes, nothing will.

Remember this the next time that you drive past a McMansion in the exurbs. I hope that it brings to mind what the owners of such tacky “Castles” favour. The dollar or our kids? The dollar or our parents? THAT’S the choice… choose well.

A Multimedia Presentation. VOR Presents… Occupy Wall Street!

Here are the REAL Patriots… they’re fighting Corporate Greed just as they fought the Fascists. Hmm… the Fascists believed in a Corporate State… so, does Wall Street and the Tea Party. They fought for the New Deal… that made America GREAT. DO you want the greedy legacy of Slobbering Ronnie or do you the fairness of FDR’s New Deal? Do think well before answering…

An economic system built only on the striving for profit, on indifference to the fate of people, on disregard for moral norms, is deprived of stability, and it can collapse at any moment, burying the fate of people under its rubble.

The NYPD arrested more than 700 people for blocking traffic on the Brooklyn Bridge during a protest against “financial terrorism in the USA”. In the protestors’ opinion, influential US financial institutions brought on the current American economic crisis. Previously, reports said that police arrested abut 400 people.

According to available information, the police started to arrest people after the protesters began to block traffic on the bridge on the Manhattan side.

Earlier, protesters established a tent camp in the Financial District, which has been in existence for about two weeks. “Occupy Wall Street” activists are dissatisfied with the growing social inequality in society and with the high unemployment rate.

The NYPD brought those arrested to court, where they were charged, and the judge released most of them on their own recognisance. The police used three buses to shuttle all of their detainees.

In addition, a demonstration occurred in Boston, in front of the offices of Bank of America; police arrested 24 of the protestors. According to organisers, around 3,000 people took part in the event. The above image is from New York, the demonstrators are marching to NYPD Headquarters.

Editor’s Note:

Let’s keep this simple. Profits have rebounded. Corporations are making more money. Employment is DOWN. Real wages and benefits are DOWN. The Republican Party screams that it’s going to destroy the social safety net for the benefit of the Five Percenters (the most prosperous Americans). Profits are UP and wages are DOWN. WHAT’S WRONG WITH THAT PICTURE?

Trust me… this is MILD. People are frustrated… people are angry… people see the self-satisfied affluent effluent and it disgusts them. We don’t want McJobs so that deceitful and dishonest vipers like Dropout Scott Walker, Paul Ryan, Rush Limbaugh, Rick Perry, and Michele Bachmann can live high off the hog in McMansions (there IS a “class war”… and THEY started it). Here’s the most noisome part of it all… the Religious Right drools a slack-jawed grin of approval at all this, and says that it’s all “God’s Plan” (I kid you not… I wish that I were). I can see why people choose unbelief. If that’s what comes parading forth as “Christianity”, God Himself wouldn’t blame someone for concluding that religion’s a racket dreamt up by the rapacious to fleece the credulous.

It’s time to end the wars. It’s time to stop the shredding of the social safety net. It’s time to institute “wealth taxes”, just as they have in the EU (trust me… the rich won’t be in the poorhouse). It’s time to end the Reaganite voodoo “Trickle Upon” economics. There were PLENTY of affluent people in 1980… there’ll be plenty of affluent people after we do away with “deregulation”. Don’t cry for them… after all, they don’t give a shit for YOU… look at what they’re doing now. Why, the “before” Scrooge would consider them greedy and grasping… and that’s no lie. It’s time to vote next year… don’t forget… YOU CAN DO IT. Ye cannot serve both God and Mammon… indeed. Do remember WHO said that…

People… or… the Almighty Dollar… THAT’S your choice.

NB:

Special note to Russian Orthodox people… His Holiness supports the aims of the Occupy Wall Street activists… just as he supports the end of the Cuban blockade, Palestinian statehood, generous state aid to families, universal-access single-payer healthcare, an end to American aggression around the world, and a fairer economic system. Paffhausen, Potapov, Jillions, Lyonyo, Dreher, Whiteford, and Mattingly (and the OCA fanatics and konvertsy in general) all support the swinish Wall Street thugocracy, and they link arms with the Religious Right, in defiance of our REAL leaders.

You can stand up with His Holiness and raise up the banner for his Pro-Life Pro-People Pro-Fairness Agenda… or, you can cosy up to Paffhausen et al and collaborate with the Wall Street Big Bucks Screw the People Agenda. You can’t have both… choose well.
