2 October 2012. Here’s What Keeps the Church on the Up and Square…

______________________________

Who are the necessary people in the Church? It’s not the bishops… it’s not the priests… it’s not the monks and nuns… it’s not jumped-up konvertsy frauds who cococt make-believe titles like “mother of the parish”… it’s the babas… the iaias. The Sovs killed most of the priests and bishops, but they couldn’t kill all the babas. One of the babas told an interrogator… “Go ahead, kill me. I’ve only got a few more years left, anyway”. The babas scared the Chekists! They did. The Chekists would shoot bishops, priests, monks, and nuns without hesitation… but the babas… they scared the Chekists with their defiance and dogged insistence on the truth (“What’s right is right, and that’s that”). The babas saved the Church, they really did, and if you doubt that, you’ll have to be quiet about it, for we’ll set you right in a trice.

In any case, a parish needs someone who’ll dig you in the ribs, and growl… “Show some respect! This is a church, not a barn!” If you’ve got the support of the babas, it doesn’t matter if the priest’s a prick and the bishop’s a conniver. You’re golden (that’s the way of it in the REAL Church). That’s why the OCA po-nashemu people are going to do OK… they got babas. That’s why the konvertsy are going to hell in a handbasket… they don’t have babas. Besides, who else is going make the potato pancakes, roll out the pirogi dough, and watch the kids (Dede? He’s out back in the garden diggin’ the spuds and cutting the tomatoes)? Smell them cookies baking… yep, baba’s here, and everything’s right with the world (if you keep your mind right, baba might give you a nip of something good to put in your tea)…

2 October 2012. Samuel L Jackson Lays Down the Real Deal on Willy…

______________________________

“Sorry, my friend, but there’s no time to snore. And out-of-touch millionaires just declared war. On schools, the environment, unions, fair pay. We’re all on our own if Romney has his way. And he’s against safety nets, if you fall, tough luck. So I strongly suggest that you wake the fuck up.”

Samuel L Jackson

Need I say more? “Wake the fuck up”.

2 October 2012. Our Great Russian Motherland… The Carpathians in the Far West… Carpatho-Russia: Faithful to the Vision of One Russia, One People, One Faith

_____________________________

Here’s a vista in the Carpathians. This is where the po-nashemu folks came from… the far western anchor of our narod… just as Chukotka is its eastern anchor, its southern anchor’s in the Altai, and the northern anchor’s in the Sevmorput. It’s Great Russia in more ways than one…
