29 September 2013. Sergei Yolkin’s World. I Know What You’re Up To, “Indian Summer”

I Know What You’re Up To, “Indian Summer”

Sergei Yolkin

******

There’s an untranslatable play on words in the title, it can also be rendered, “I know what you’re up to, ‘Old Grandma’”. The image is a play on the Russian usage бабьим летом (babym letom), which literally means “Grandma’s Summer”. If he were dealing with the English, no doubt, he’d use an Indian, not a grandma. It’s one of those idiomatic things…

Dmitri Kiktev the deputy director of the Hydrometeorological Centre of Russia (Gidrometcentr Rossii), said that, in the immediate future, we won’t have “Indian Summer” in the capital, the rain will continue, and it won’t heat up until early October. Sergei Yolkin‘s upset about that.

On Wednesday, the first snow fell in the capital. It was an abnormal occurrence for this time of year in Moscow; it came about due to a massive cyclone, which could bring us the first frost this week.  Sergei Yolkin gives a possible scenario of what might happen.

29 September 2013. Rod Dreher Spouts Juvenile Rubbish in “Time”… This Toddler Wants Us to Believe that He Knows What He’s Talking About… What a Maroon!

00 Ignoranus. It means stupid. 29.09.13

______________________________

First, sit down and pour yourself a good stiff drink. Then, down it in one smooth motion. Good! Now, you’re ready to read the latest drivel from Rod Dreher. This disgusting toddler knows nothing of real Orthodoxy, the culture of the Orthosphere, or the folkways of real Orthodox people. However, like all zapadniki poseurs, he thinks that he has the right to speak for us! After all, we’re stupid, sullen, and wilful… we can’t do so ourselves… we need him, Freddie M-G, Patrick Henry Reardon, Whiteford, Honeycutt, and Mattingly to speak for our ignorant selves. Excuse me!

What utter bunkum and horseshit! Someone should stuff a rag into this ignoranus’ mouth. He’s nothing but a Know Nothing Neocon Yahoo… he stands against what HH teaches… and HH agrees with Pope Francisco. HH attacks the Free Market Hell that Dreher et al espouse. HH condemns the Consumerist Babel that Dreher et al laud (don’t attend to their bleats against it… they’re all supporters of the Republican Me First ideology). As a friend at the Centre said to me:

His Holiness was a Soviet patriot. Of course, he aided the special services {KGB: editor}… he did so in opposition to capitalist aggression, which we’ve seen all too often in the last twenty years. He’s a friend of Gennady Andreyevich {Zyuganov, the head of the KPRF: editor} and of Fidel Castro. He deeply believes in socialism and in communalism. He honours the full legacy of our country.

Rod Dreher had best shut up and LEARN. However, he won’t. None of them will. The only question is how long they’ll stay with us. The konvertsy are ploughing their own furrow, and they’ve done so from the outset. They’ve never joined us in all fullness of soul; they’ve never “eaten from the same dish as we have”. When they leave (not all of the converts will leave, only the pig-headed neocons and swinish Ayn Rand fans will), it’ll be a time for the rest of us to take stock and assess the lessons that these poseurs taught us. If nothing else, we should be leery of ordaining former heterodox clergy. Then, we’ll have to get down to our real business… we have a Russian Orthodox Church to unify and rebuild here in Alaska, and in the American and Canadian diaspora.

When will Dreher stop his witless dribbling? Never, I fear…
