10 February 2018. You Can’t Please All of the People All of the Time

I got an amusing thing in my commboxes recently. I disabled “comments” long ago, so this person had to go back and find an old post that still had comments enabled. That wasn’t easy, kids! Why they did so is puzzling to me… I’m not important at all and they went to a great deal of trouble to diss me (so they thought). This Einstein wrote:

You are serving Satan.

They signed themselves:

Screaming Orgasm

What a maroon! If you take a stand on anything at all, you’ll attract opposition (note well that the above opponent lacked the guts to sign their real name and gave a bogus email address, too). If you look at the commboxes of most material posted on the web you’d find that most comments are meretricious tendentious rubbish posted by ignorant shit-fer-brains yahoos. Rightwingers are the most scurrilous… especially, the anti-Semitic lot. However, I find that “liberals” with their condescension and the “religious” with their self-righteousness are even worse (armchair theory-spouting “leftists” are in the same bag). The worst are Orthodox konvertsy, who throw hissy fits if you don’t agree with their mooning about Serafim Rose or their obsession with guns, gays, and abortion.

If you take a stand, someone is going to throw stones at you. Full stop. Pour yourself a measure of something good and smile. You can’t control anyone else or how they think of you. Full stop. Don’t be a childish moron like they are. You took a stand… someone attacked you. Grow up. As I like to say:

If you hate me and want to tear me down in public, you’re not the first. Join that long line on the right. However, before you do, notice that the line of those who support me, over there on the left, is equally long.

Keep your wits, keep focused, and SMILE. It riles ’em when they realise that they haven’t “made your day”. However, do take my hand… the times aren’t good and the road ahead is dark… only a joint effort will win the day. Reflect on that…

25 February 2017. A Tale of Two Images… Why It Pays to Vet EVERYTHING

00-bad-cat-250217

Here’s the original image… it’s all over the web…

******

00-cat-250217

Here’s the version circulating on the RuNet… it’s very popular there, too

_____________________________________

I always vet my images, for I’ve found that often a viral image comes from a different source. That is, many viral images on the RuNet aren’t Russian in origin (as the above image illustrates). In most cases, there’s no intent to deceive or mislead, only a desire to share a striking or funny image. However, vetting is a good habit to get into… otherwise, you could believe the rot published in the NYT or WaPo or WSJ or Fox or CNN… when it’s mostly “fake news” pushing the oligarch POV. I always check American media stories against local media outlets; usually, it doesn’t pass the “smell test” (Rod Dreher and Sofiya Kishkovskaya are prime examples, from both ends of the ideological spectrum). Have a care… there are deceivers out there… most of them are “respectable”… they DO have an agenda (and they all have paymasters with definitely nefarious goals).

3 January 2017. Don’t Argue With the Disputatious… BLOCK THEM

01 virtual reality rubbish dump

Have a care with the overly gnarly… they often have a distorted (if not unrealistic) view of the world. Don’t coddle them… BLOCK THEM…

___________________________________________

Recently, a forward sort called me a “nutcase” in his comments. How does one deal with that? Firstly, it shows one that you’re dealing with a juvenile narcissist. Secondly, it’s someone raised without manners or tact, likely indecent (and certainly, unclassy). Don’t argue with such sorts. DON’T. PLEASE, DON’T. Do what I do. BLOCK THEM AND BE DONE WITH THEM. I (and you) have only a limited amount of God-given time… we shouldn’t waste it on boors and self-centred gasbags. Block them and be done. If someone is so badly socialised that they act in such a manner, well, you or I can’t remedy it. The only thing that decent folk can do is to block them and keep them out of one’s life and circle.

I’m going to be 63 my next birthday… I know that some sorts are beyond help. Don’t try to do so… you’ll only frustrate yourself. As I said, block them and be at peace. Be good, all…

2 January 2017. Bad Galician Uniate Nationalist PhotoShop Exposed as Fake and Provocation

00-bad-photoshop-020117

____________________________________

The above is phony… it’s fake… it’s spurious… it came originally (as far as I could trace) from a GALICIAN UNIATE NATIONALIST website! I’d like to emphasise that not all Galician Uniates are drooling nationalist fascist nutters… indeed, Galician Uniates have the HIGHEST draft evasion rate in the Ukraine! One village even put all of its military-age men on coaches to Novosibirsk (where the Russians welcomed them and helped them out). I stress that I’m speaking of Galician Uniate NATIONALISTS… who are bloodthirsty fascists and terrorists (“The Ukraine for Ukrainians only!”… I rest my case). The rest are just harmless workaday human beings, who want to live and let live. Do have a care with criticising Galician Uniates and “Ukrainian Orthodox” nationalists… they like to report people for “hate speech” and other such rot. Don’t give them a pretext… they learnt the lying game well from their Anglo paymasters and puppeteers.

As for this image… as far as I could tell, it surfaced in 2014 on a Galician Uniate nationalist forum, where the poster liberally peppered their submission with “katsap” and “moskal” (but I’d betcha they’re mad as hell if someone uses “kholkhol” against them!). It could even have been a deliberate Langley provocation using one of their Galician employees or associates. Since then, it’s been attributed to various cities, usually, at times when fascist nationalist nutters hold torchlight marches in memory of the terrorist S A Bandera (he was a convicted murderer in Poland). It’s a phony… there are telltales for those expert in Photoshop… in a real torchlight procession, there’d be more lit areas around the torches, and in such a small area, it’d light up the square more brilliantly than shown. Also note the amateurish melding of the tree and the swastika… where the tree meets the light, it should mask it, but it doesn’t fully. The poster didn’t go far enough in increasing the size of the image to impose it properly and they didn’t pay enough attention to the edges of the image details (a sign that a klutz did this). The poster superimposed a classic image from Nazi Germany (covering a larger area at one of the Party Rallies) over a New Year scene in the modern Ukraine (of a more confined space). What a clueless scumbag! In short, a carelessly executed and slapdash PhotoShop… but that’s typical of such sorts. It does give you a peek at their character. As I said, they learnt falsehood well from their Anglo masters (“Russian hacking” anyone?).

Whenever you see this one… call it out for the fake that it is… it’s a deliberate and lying provocation meant to make Russians look stupid… but it does the exact opposite. It’s a classic “biter bit” item. Never forget that the Anglo Establishment and its running dogs throughout the world have very flexible ethical standards (that includes the Quislings amongst diaspora Orthodox). “Winning is the only thing”… do remember who said that… a draft-dodging American Football coach who hid out serving in World War II under a teacher’s deferment. “Show me a man’s idols and I’ll show you the man”… indeed…
