25 January 2013. There’s Good Shit Out There… A Link to Consistent Life: Voices for Peace and Life

Barbara-Marie Drezhlo. Respect for Life from Beginning to End. 2012

______________________________

One of the Cabinet made me hip to a website called Consistent Life… click here to go there. These people aren’t rightwing anti-abortionists, they’re real deal prolifers. They don’t cheerlead for foreign wars, the DHS Gestapo, or the Affluent Effluent… they stand up against the Rightwing Culture of Death wherever they find it. That includes so many in the so-called “Pro-Life” movement… if you want to be Pro-Life, you have to stop shilling for the extremist agenda of the Republican Party, full stop. Oddly enough, it’s the rightwing “social conservatives” who’re the greatest enemies of real Pro-Life through their support of greedy pols who want to dismantle the social safety net… they scream about the “Culture of Death”, yet, they’re its greatest enablers through their votes for rightwing politicians. Interesting paradox, isn’t it?

If you want to call me a “socialist“… go ahead! I’m a Leftist, and proud of it. Interesting… for many years I was schizo… I was a union member (and walked the picket line) and, yet, remained a Republican. The meltdown of ’07 opened my eyes. I saw the objective evil in the anti-life and anti-people ethos of the Republican Party… it IS a Culture of Death (when sick people are refused healthcare if they have the “wrong” insurance, that’s evil, yet the Republicans smile at it all). I saw how my Nicky was treated shabbily by his employers… and it was “legal”.

There’s Pro-Life and there’s Anti-Abortion. They’re NOT the same thing. Think on that, if you will…

25 January 2013. More on the Unfolding Saga in DC… Part One (More Tonight)

01 Woman Drinking Coffee

______________________________

Firstly, I didn’t post yesterday as I was feeling poorly. Like so many others, I have a touch of the flu, but since I lack sick pay (thank you, Slobberin’ Ronnie), I had to go to work half-ill anyway. One of the Cabinet sent me this:

When Bishop Basil Rodzianko was alive, the deed of his apartment/chapel was in the name of Marilyn Swezey’s mother. I assume Marilyn either cajoled her mother into purchasing the unit (a condominium) for Bishop Basil or not charging him rent.  In any case, Bishop Basil lived there rent-free.

That’s to say, Darlin’ Marilyn has been deeply involved in Potapov’s incestuous little cabal for quite some time (Rodzianko died in 1999). Add it up… Potapov has been gathering a claque over the years, he runs a spurious “charity” on the IRS shit list, and, now, he’s trying to get Fatso into the ROCOR as a rootless retired bishop resident in the District. It adds up to a rum go, no matter which way you crunch the numbers. The only reason that Potapov’s pulling this shit is that Hilarion Kapral‘s health is poor (he has beaucoup serious complications from diabetes), making him unable to be completely in control of the situation.

One last thing before I go… today is the so-called “March for Life“… that’s a misnomer if there ever was such. I know many in the so-called “Pro-Life Movement“, and, in the main, they’re dupes, not evil sorts. They’re pleasant enough (invariably, they’re “nice” people), but they can’t see that the pols behind this movement are cynical rightwing bastards who support the gun nutters, perpetual warfare in foreign parts, the “security state”, coddling of the One Percent, and the promiscuous overuse of the death penalty. In short, the Republican Party opposes what the late John Cardinal O’Connor called the “seamless garment” principle, ergo, they’re hypocritical manipulators of the worst sort. The Prolifers are their clueless dupes and fellow-travellers. Anti-abortion is NOT Pro-Life… but don’t argue with such sorts, they won’t listen. They’ve drunk the rightwing Kool-Aid, and that’s that.

See y’all later (got to get to work, kids)…
