12 February 2012. Winter IS a Cumen’ In… Everyone Sing “God-Damn”


Hey, kids… this isn’t Siberia or Alaska… this is Constanța in Romania. You got it… the relatively balmy south. It hasn’t been this bloody cold there since 1977. The port’s closed due to ice… you can see it here. Makes ya wanna reach for the fur gotchies, doesn’t it? YOUCH! Winter IS a cumen’ in… GOD-DAMN! BRR…



12 February 2012. Whose Idea WAS It?


People are competitive… dogs are competitive… horses are competitive… but cats? They truly don’t give a shit… full stop. Take a look at this cat… you can see the utter resignation and boredom written all over him. He’s just waitin’ for a full bowl of KiteKat…

Chilly Tonight? Close it Tight!

The original in Russian rhymed… so, I took “liberties” with the literal translation to have it rhyme in English, too. The sign has a price for the super at 200 Roubles (6.75 USD. 5 Euros. 4.25 UK Pounds).


Pyotr Biryukov, Moscow Deputy Mayor for Housing, Public Utilities, and Public Works, told reporters that Muscovites should close the windows and shut the doors in the hallways during freezing weather to keep temperatures comfortable.

12 February 2012. The Western World Screams for War… Who’s Standing for Peace?


The Western media’s full of drumbeats for war in Syria. Guess what? Russia and China said, “NO!” No doubt, you’ve heard the squalling from America, its Islamist allies, and its NATO running-dogs. Russia beat back the aggression from America’s Georgian surrogates in South Ossetia in ’08. It’s standing tall again… on guard for peace. The only way that we’ll have peace in the world is if there’s a strong counterweight to the American hegemonists. The American Neocons and “Humanitarian Interventionists” from “both sides of the aisle” are soulless, godless, blood-thirsty, and power-hungry. The only thing that they respect is raw power. They pulled back when Russia waxed their arse but good in ’08. You can tell that by the amount of caterwauling that went up from the usual cast of suspects. The fact remains… three Russian divisions ran two American-supported Georgian division-equivalents out of Abkhazia and South Ossetia. The Americans got their nose bloodied for the entire world to see, and they didn’t like it one little bit. They especially didn’t like being caught out in an unsuccessful act of aggression… Langley stepped full-force in a fresh cow pat, and in full public view, too (you could tell that by the outraged statements in the Western media).

Today, the same Inside-the-Beltway pigs are screaming for war… if you support ANY intervention in Syria, you support an Islamist massacre of the Alawite and Christian population. FULL STOP. Look at what happened to the Christians in Iraq! That’s what’s awaiting the minorities in Syria if the Islamist rebels take over. The Americans have an unbroken and unrepentant track-record of throwing local Christians to the dogs where Islamists are concerned. They also do their best to cover up and hush up all the nastiness committed by their Islamist surrogates (such as the sale of human organs in Kosovo). We have NO “perfect” choices… we can have Assad or we can have the Islamists. I choose Assad… not only is he the best choice for the minorities, he’s the best choice for the Sunni majority. You see, the Islamists’ first order of business would be a mass killing of their opponents within the Sunni community. That is, the USA‘s supporting Talibanesque thugs, yet again. WHY? Dear God, why?
