8 July 2017. A Kind Note to My Friends

________________________

I’ve only one thing to say to my friends:

“I’ve got yer back…. unconditionally”.

That’s all and that’s enough, I’d say. I don’t care if we disagree on this or on that. That’s a mere piffle. Friendship involves love… an understanding that the Other is what they are and that you must love them as they are, with no ifs, ands, or buts. Respect flows naturally when you love the Other for what they are… love doesn’t flow from respect… respect flows from love. Love can only flow when you accept them for what they are and you accept yourself for what you are. It does lead to bumps n’ friction… but it’s real, and that’s always good.

Friendhip is an ontological reality independent of feeling or agreement. Do think on that.

8 July 2017. A Word on the Myrrh-Streaming Icon of St Ioann Maksimovich in the American-Occupied DNR

________________________

Victor Potapov is circulating a news item about an icon of St Ioann Maksimovich streaming myrrh in the DNR. Note well that the CIA pig Potapov didn’t mention that the event took place in the American-occupied fascist part of the DNR. Myrrh-streaming is usually a sign of comfort in times of trouble. Note well that the CIA quisling Potapov (a real “Chekist in a riassa” if there ever was such) doesn’t mention that the fascist Uniate “Ukraine” is falling apart as we speak, with great suffering for ordinary people. This myrrh-streaming is divine proof that the “Ukraine” isn’t long for this world and that God is comforting His people to steady them for the coming trials as the American-imposed Uniate pseudo-state collapses. Potapov was a high-ranking CIA operative with a “red” official US passport (that gave him immunity from ordinary passport control). One must never forget this. Potapov took Langley’s money to undermine his ancestral homeland. Radio Liberty had the purpose (and still does) of undermining the USSR/Russia. What can you say of a priest who willingly aided such an enterprise?

This event doesn’t bode well for the “Ukraine” in the near term. The only reason that the fascist Uniate junta staggers on is that the USA props it up. The suffering in that region is intense at present… it’ll get worse as order and state control collapse. The icon streams myrrh to remind people that God is still with them in their distress and grief. Note well that none of the konvertsy jerks noticed any of this. If you needed proof that they’re idiots, with no redeeming qualities whatsoever, this is that. They support American politicians that back the murder of our Orthodox kids in the Donbass… they’re “pro-life”, after all…

8 July 2017. A Thought on Healthcare in the Age of Corporatist Bloat

This is from 2012… Obama had many faults, but he (at least) signed the Affordable Care Act (do remember how Hillary (I think intentionally) flubbed it in the 90s)…

This says it all about Republican compassion and caring… and about the Clintonistas too…

I lay in the hotel room hearing my uncles discuss the price of feed corn and it occurred to me, not once but several times, that I am a fortunate man and thank you, Lord, for Medicare A and B and a good group health policy and for savings to cover any shortfall. The 23 million people who may lose their health insurance in the next few years if Congress does as the man wishes will face some high barriers between them and any sort of eye surgery. This doesn’t come under the heading of Kindness.

Eighty percent of evangelical Christians who cast ballots last fall voted for a man who seems as far from Christian virtues (humility, kindness, patience, etc.) as Hulk Hogan is from the Dalai Lama. These people pray for guidance. So apparently, Jesus got the story wrong. The rich man came to Lazarus who was covered with sores and asked for a tax break, and the rich man was rewarded and Lazarus went to hell. Do unto others as you’re glad they don’t have the means to do unto you.

Remember… the Clintons brought us NAFTA, “welfare reform”, and the repeal of limits on Wall Street. Any ordinary person who voted for Hillary Clinton was a boob, full stop. Upper-Middles? They voted their class interest. They profited under the Clintons the last time and anticipated more good times under Hillary. As for us, they not only don’t give a good goddamn, they never did.

The rest of the article from which I took the excerpt is here.
