I Probably Live in Another Country…

00 Vitaly Podvitsky. Well, now tell us how bad it is to live here. 2014


I probably live in another country.

This country lives in the merciless grip of corruption and sadistic cops. Well, I can’t remember the last time that a traffic cop put the bite on me, and, to be honest, I can’t even remember when someone asked for “oil to grease the wheels”… a good friend of mine works for the police.

This country has a wrecked educational system; teachers give grades for bribes and torment the children. My daughter goes to the same school where I studied, where almost a third of the teachers are those who taught me, and the curriculum she has to master is deeper than the one in place when I was her age.

This country has no freedom. I looked at my passport and I thought that it might need another page or two, for there’s nowhere to put new stamps.

This country has killer doctors and the medical system is in shambles. In my Russia, at New Year’s 2012, at five minutes to midnight, my mother had a heart attack… an ambulance arrived 12 minutes later. It rushed off… then, it was two weeks in hospital, and blah-blah-blah. She’s back to normal… none of it cost us a dime. I baked a cake for the doctors. This is corruption? It was just my gratitude… from the heart.

This country has a bloody system that destroys all the orphans. Finally, my country officially banned the trade in the export of Russian citizens.

This country has censorship and lacks freedom of speech. I constantly read criticism of the state in opposition papers.

This country has pervasive drunkenness and drug addiction. I go to a gym, one of the many in the district, and sober people of all generations, from morning to evening every day, are all around me there.

This country has impoverished old-age-pensioners who grub about in the dumps. In my country, my 72-year-old father didn’t go into debt for his dacha or for his Ford Focus 2.

This country has rich grasping oilmen and rich thieving politicians… no one else lives well. I’m an engineer in a design office… I don’t do purchases or sales, I don’t play with the laws, nor do I have any power relationships. My father taught in a lyceum, my mother was a doctor… they weren’t oligarchs.

My country has enough problems. There are people missing… there are villains… there are chisellers… and much, much more. However, most are just good normal people.

This country teems with idiots, niggers, scoundrels, and thieves. You know, I would’ve been shit on (pardon my frankness) if I lived in “this country”… their gang tries to remake me and my family, and all of Russia, into the image of “this country”. They scream that they’ll leave, but most of them don’t hand over their passports… they shit on us… they shit in their own nest. Leave, you nasty scumbags! Really, you’re not great shakes! This isn’t your country.

This is Russia.

Of the Westerns, three groups are particularly vile in their lies about Russia…

  • The Republican Party, as shown by its support of anti-Russian legislation
  • The Roman Catholic Church hierarchy, as shown by its support of Uniate murderers in Novorossiya
  • American Radical Sectarians (“Evangelicals”), as shown by their lies of non-existent anti-Protestant pogroms in Novorossiya

Orthodox people should break ties with these groups immediately (in the UK and Canada, it means breaking with the Conservative Party… in Australia, in means breaking with the Liberal Party). We shouldn’t enquire about “Pro-Life” at this time… we should enquire about who’s holding a knife to our throat. The Republicans do so… the RC hierarchy does so… the “Evangelicals” do so. To have anything to do with them in any venue is madness. Remember… ordinary RCs didn’t make the policy, but their bishops do support the policy… if they didn’t, they’d be out. In any case, all RC bishops are defenders of the Unia. Shun the bishops, their “dialogues”, and their “interfaith services”… be open to the RC believers… they had no voice in this.

We live in a fallen, fallen world…



3 October 2014. Yom Kippur … Holiest Day for Jews, Begins at Sundown

Yom Kippur


Yom Kippur is Holy Friday, Holy Week, and Lent rolled into one… on one day! Don’t bug your Jewish friends… they’re supposed to be reflecting and meditating on their sins. They’ll be breaking the Yom Kippur fast tomorrow at sundown… then, it’s copacetic to visit them and bring a gift or two. This is like Easter for them… it’s the most important day of their religious year. Give ’em the space to honour it. That’s the best gift that you can give them.


3 October 2014. As Seen by Vitaly Podvitsky. It Looks Like the West Has “Bird Flu!” 2014

00 Vitaly Podvitsky. Well, it looks like the west has 'bird flu'. 2014


The USA should’ve kept its big mouth SHUT on the Hong Kong disturbances. Now, they’ve made the Chinese “lose face” in public, and it takes the Chinese DECADES to get over what they perceive as insults. They won’t say anything… but they wait for the opportune moment to get even. The Bear smiles… the clueless Anglo American toddlers did it again. Don’t they EVER learn?


3 October 2014. A Picture IS Worth a Thousand Words… Blessing the Soyuz… the Only Way that American Cosmonauts can Go Into the Cosmos

00 blessing Soyuz 41. Baikonaur. Russia. 03.10.14


With all the chest-beating on the part of the American rightwing… let’s utter a home truth. American cosmonauts have to fly Russian spacecraft to the ISS as the reckless Republican filth wasted the USA’s treasure in useless land wars in Asia that didn’t advance the cause of national defence one iota and on gigantic tax cuts to corporations and to lazy wealthy scummers. That’s a fact, jack…

If you vote for the Republican Party, you vote for anti-patriotism (exporting jobs abroad and nominating cowards who refused to do military service), you vote for anti-life programmes (gutting the social safety net that unwed moms need to raise kids instead of having abortions), and you vote for Might Makes Right (bullying smaller countries and handing the country over to the Country Club Affluent Effluent Set). If you vote against them, you just might have Americans flying American spacecraft again. After all, the money for warmongering and coddling the rich has to come from somewhere…


Vote against the Republican scummers… God will bless you for it (and so will His Holiness… he’s a Red, and don’t you forget it!)…
