Heritage Foundation Buzzards Down Russia… That’s a GOOD Sign, Kids

00 Lenin and Red Banner. 16.11.13

This is why the Heritage Foundation hates RussiaVVP hates the oligarchs and he intends handing power to the commies when he leaves the scene. Ergo, they hate him, they hate Russia, and they hate all of us who applaud that. Remember… you gauge someone not only by the company that they keep, but also by the opposition that they draw. If you attract the rage of loud rightwing shitbirds for advocating justice… rest easy, it means that your path is god-pleasing and virtuous…

Editor’s Note:

Boo-hoo! The Heritage Foundation castigated Russia for lack of “economic freedom”. What righties mean by that is simple. “Economic Freedom” means that the oligarch class stamps on everyone else to fatten their boodle bags, whilst a feeble and denutted government slobbers its bootless approval. That’s wrong and totally against the fundamental Orthodox teaching of Symphonia (the Church is FOR a strong state). I applaud VVP for standing up to such febrile and vacuous shit. Reflect on this… most of those urging such godless anarchy call themselves “Christians” (actually, virtually all of them aren’t real Christians at all; they’re Born Agains, Pentecostalists, and Mormons). It tells you much about the Orthodox who want to ally us with such rubbishy elements. After all, birds of a feather…

On Wednesday, the Heritage Foundation {a Far Right advocacy group: editor} released its 2014 “Index of Economic Freedom (sic)”; Russia ranked 140th out of 186 countries, placing it between Tajikistan and Burundi. The country scored 51.9 economic freedom points, which is 0.8 points higher than 2013, but still below the global average. Heritage Foundation noted improvements in four out of 10 economic freedoms (sic), including control of government spending, but reported declines in trade freedom, freedom from corruption, and fiscal freedom. Over the two decade history of the index, generally, Russia’s results were poor, with the score over that period only ever improving by less than one point in any given year {consider the source… if the righties hate you…: editor}. The Heritage Foundation stated, “Overall, notable improvements in trade freedom and monetary freedom (sic) were largely offset by substantial declines in investment freedom (sic), financial freedom (sic), business freedom (sic) {“business freedom”: a business’ ability to stamp on its staff and screw the public with impunity: editor}, and property rights, and Russia’s economy remains ‘mostly unfree’” {which means that things in Russia are better than they seem to be: editor}. The Heritage Foundation also attacked “fragile” foundations for sustainable development, “endemic” corruption, and the state’s overbearing role in the economy.

Editor’s Postscript:

Fathausen, Potapov, Webster, and Dreher (along with their fevered followers) all sucked up (and still suck up) to the Heritage Foundation (and the equally evil American Enterprise Institute). That tells you much about them, doesn’t it? You can stand with HH or you can stand with the rightwing jabronies… that’s what on offer. I stand with HH… after all, he just put on a dynamite yolka for poor kids along with the good folks from the Moscow Profsoyuz (that’s the trades-union people)… he doesn’t suck up to oligarchs… so, neither should we. Mark down who does, don’t argue with them, but oppose them, for they go against the social teaching of our Patriarch (who agrees with Pope Francisco completely on economic equity and social justice). ‘Nuff said…

Oh, yes… isn’t it amusing to see certain rightwing sorts amongst us say that they’ve “always supported” His Holiness, when everything that HH says on politics and society contradicts and condemns their Hard Right Republican notions? If it weren’t so serious, it’d be ROFL… we live in a passing strange world, don’t we? Do pass the jug, if you please…

There’s this gross wisdom among Teapublicans that they’re always just one candidate away from winning the big one, which is a belief hardwired by their inert ideological purity [it’s interesting to note how these opponents of “political correctness” embody the early-20th-century meaning of the term. Mirabile dictu!: editor]. Their imagined saviour is embodied in the mindset of conservative consciousness… Limbaugh, Beck, and Hannity… a flag-bearing trio of virtuous rightwing demagoguery.

There’s an interesting fact about these three great paladins of “patriotism”… all three REFUSED TO SERVE IN THE FORCES, but they beat the war-drums constantly. It’s interesting to note how TPers lionise such cowards. After all, they’re always telling us how patriotic and self-sacrificial they are… it’s another lovely story murdered by ugly reality.

However, don’t argue with TPers… it won’t do any earthly (or heavenly) good, it won’t help them to see to the truth, and (above all) they enjoy fighting! That’s why I stopped corresponding with Whiteford… it wasn’t doing either of us any good; all that he was doing was browbeating me to agree to his loony-tunes rightie nonsense. Step up to that booth, mark your ballot, and put in the box! That’s the only language these creepo supremos understand. Jim DeMint saw the meaning in the tealeaves and left the Senate. What does he know that we don’t?
