24 May 2016. Mighty Rus… It’s Been Around For a Bit…

00 Mighty Rus... 240516

______________________________

In 988, Russia adopted Orthodox Christianity. In 1242, St Aleksandr Nevsky kicked the shit out of the Teutonic Knights. In 1380, St Dmitri Donskoi skunked the Horde on the Kulikovo Polye. In 1613, Minin and Pozharsky ran the Poles out of Moscow. In 1709, Tsar Pyotr Veliki whipped the Swedes at Poltava. Where was the indispensable USA? Yes, where was it? Answer that, and you know that Paul Wolfowitz (and all “conservatives”) suck wind. Russia has been around for a long time… the USA hasn’t been around as long. When it lasts as long as Russia has, then, they can talk. Now… they’re just bratty arrogant toddlers armed with nuclear weapons. That thought scares me… it should scare you, too. May God have His mercy on us all.

22 May 2016. From the Russian Web… Some Wisdom From Mark Twain

00 cat and dog 220516

______________________________

Who woulda thunk it? Mark Twain quoted on vK! Well, Russians don’t hate Americans, but they do hate the American government and all of its sleazy doings in foreign parts. In Sov times, ordinary folk didn’t hate America or Americans. No way, no how! However, today, ordinary sods HATE America for what it’s trying to do to Russia. Russia simply wants to be left alone in peace; it doesn’t want any part of Anglo toddler notions. Yet, the Anglo brats want to press the point… all that does is to rile up Russians and get them prepared to kick Anglo ass as soon as the demented Anglos show up on their doorstep.

Russians want peace. Russians want amity. HOWEVER… no other nation knows how to fight as well as Russia does. It’s had to fight for national survival many times… which the USA has NEVER had to do. I fear that the Yanks swallowed German bullshit whole about Russians… that we’re an inferior race, with an inferior culture. Remember this… the Red Army raised the Victory Banner over the Reichstag in 1945 (and Tsar Aleksandr I Pavlovich led the victorious Allied armies into Paris in 1814)… the German fascists failed in their attempt to destroy us. America had best bear that in mind…

They could try kindness and honesty… however, can you expect such from a bunch that enshrines “winning is the only thing?”
