A Russian Fist to the English Forehead

00 So It's Sanctions. Russia UK 120616

___________________________________

Yesterday’s Russia-England football match, in which our team showed character, once again showed the English that they don’t know everything about Russia and our national character. Some of the English know us a little bit from earlier football battles, when 250 Russian fans dispersed a crowd of insane drunken hooligans from Albion in the old port of Marseille.

Germans are good soldiers and warriors; the British are also good. However, no one is better at fighting than Russians are, because for centuries we developed soldiers who are ready to die. Moreover, they had the willingness to defend and protect Russia; they wished to defend her. The soldiers of the West want to win, but we’re prepared to die, up to the point of victory. These are two different things; they’re fundamentally different. Hence, one finds a complete absence of such podvigs* such as those of A M Matrosov in the armed forces of Germany, France, and England. This allowed the company of Pskov paratroopers to smash a terrorist band in Chechnya, even though they were almost completely wiped out in an unequal fight. Western Special Forces operators couldn’t repeat the podvig of Russian hero A A Prokhorenko, who called fire on himself in Syria, to destroy the ISIS filth. Our enemies must always bear in mind that any victory will cost them so dearly that any prospect of defeat is even scarier, so, they shouldn’t even think about threatening us. This is the key to Russia’s security. It isn’t necessary for us to bang on about it…

  • Podvig: Should NEVER be “Englished”… one of the most powerful words in the Russian language. There are literally no English equivalents strong enough. Podvig has overtones of “epic”, “heroic”, “bravery”, “self-sacrifice”, “victory”, “effort”, and “triumph”. It’s best to leave it as is, and admit that English lacks the necessary material to give meaning to this word.

12 June 2016. A Point to Ponder…

00 Have Mercy on Me O God. 08.03

If the Gospel’s about anything, it’s about a God who meets us where we are, not where we ought to be.

Fr Robert Farrar Capon

Reflect on this whenever you hear loudmouth clergy issue thunderous claptrap from the ambo in re “purity” and “right conduct”… I’d say that the Church is right to offer oikonomia and that the “pure” are wrong in their akrivia. They want to “protect” the Church… I’d counter by saying that Our Lord Christ preferred the company of whores and tax-farmers to the company of priests and “religious”… do ponder that… moreover, do ponder who called for His death!

12 June 2016. Hilly’s Take on Snowden is Laughable

00 Hillary the Witch

______________________________

Hilly claimed that Snowden should’ve stayed in the USA and received “all the protections of a whistleblower”. Hmm… I seem to recall the Manning case. What “protection” did they receive? Why, a long-ass prison sentence in a max security pen, that’s what! Hilly’s being her usual lying self… if it were up to her, she’d pull the switch herself to open up the chemicals to the spike to kill ANY of her rivals or those who discomfited her in any way. Yet, her backers eat this shit up. What does it tell you about them and their motives? Nothing good, I’d say… have a care with HillyBillys… they’re as devious and untruthful as their idol. Keep it focused… the times aren’t good.

12 June 2016. “Herman Hyperdox” is a Cowardly Putz

______________________________

There’s a person calling themselves “Herman Hyperdox” taking pot-shots at people. That’s wrong. I sign my posts with my name… so does Alex Riggle… we’re both willing to stand up and be counted. That’s also true of many others on the web. However, “Herman Hyperdox” is a cowardly putz who hides behind a username. They won’t take responsibility for what they post. That’s beneath the salt in my book. If you post something, do it under your name so that people know who it is and who’s willing to take the hits for posting it. This isn’t happening here. “Herman Hyperdox” sprang from a sick juvenile mind… not the satire… not the lame humour… but the very real instance of hiding one’s identity. Either one takes responsibility for one’s words and actions, or one is a coward, full stop.

I’m willing to stand up and take the heat… this person refuses to… do draw the obvious conclusion, kids…
