Junta Slimers want to Shitcan Provisions Mandating Free Medical Care in Ukrainian Constitution

01c Patriarchal Yolka 2011

HH with kids at his New Year’s Yolka at the State Kremlin Palace… he cosponsors it with the Profsoyuz (Trades-Union Federation) NOT with greedster crapitalist oligarch filth. He SUPPORTS a full social safety net. That’s why the Timoshenko junta’s attempt to destroy state-mandated healthcare is evil and why all decent people must oppose them for it.

______________________________

Irina Spirina, Rada People’s Deputy of the KPU faction, and First Deputy Head of the Rada Health Committee, told GolosUA that the Health Committee of the Rump Rada proposed to destroy free healthcare in the Ukraine by amending the Constitution, saying, “In parallel with their grasp for political ‘reforms’, we see attempts by extremist neoliberal oligarchic factions to change the social foundation of the Ukraine by removing social guarantees from the Constitution”. At the same time, she explained that a bill came to her Rada committee amending Article 49 of the Constitution, which guarantees free medical care in the Ukraine, noting, “Today (12 March), we held a meeting of the Rada Health Committee. At the meeting, we discussed proposed changes to Article 49 of the Constitution. How could the Committee propose that? The law sets the norms for state guarantees of free medical care for citizens and their regulation. Today, the Constitution guarantees free basic medical care. The proposed amendment would allow the government to decide the volume and qualities of healthcare arbitrarily”. She added that each new government “rewrites” laws and regulations. Spirina thinks that we shouldn’t remove provision of free medical care from the Constitution. She told us that almost all the members of the Committee voted for the proposal, except for one abstention. Spirina said, “I voted against it”.

Editor’s Note:

Can you see why the Weekly Standard and all the neocons are creaming their jeans over the junta, even more so than Democratic “humanitarian interventionists” are? This should prove to all concerned that the Republican Party’s stance on social welfare is evil and that all decent people should oppose it. The GOP and the junta agree… “Money makes the world go around… it’s more important than people are”… if you can’t see that, you’re blind (especially, in light of Paul Ryan’s recent acrid remarks).

Orthodox people… the Church condemns the junta’s stance (and that of the GOP)… if you support Justin Amash, Gus Bilirakis, or Darrell Issa, you set yourself up against the best elements in Christ’s Church. HH is FOR single-payer healthcare and a well-financed FULL social safety net… so, get your minds right and oppose all pseudo-religious poseurs, both in the USA and in the Ukraine.

12 February 2014. If the GOP Is Wrong, Who’s Right? Follow HH, I Say!

00 Patriarch Kirill. 12.02.14

______________________________

Editor’s Foreword:

I used some of these images before, but they’re mute proof of my submission. Note well that certain rightwing loudmouths can’t back up THEIR assertions with similar images. You can follow HH or you can follow certain well-known internet trolls… it’s up to you… choose wisely…

******

Look at the above image with its quote from HH. “You can’t increase solidarity without mutual help and support”. Now, that’s the ticket. The image is from the Patriarchal Yolka this year. Every year, HH puts on an ass-kicking party for orphans and other poor kids. Who helps him? Why, it’s the good folks from the Profsoyuz… the Trades Union Federation. My, my, my, HH is a LEFTIE! (Look at all the konvertsy faint away in shock) Look at these images from this dy-no-mite shindig at the State Kremlin Palace:

******

00 Patriarchal Yolka Moscow. 12.02.14

******

00 Patriarchal Yolka Moscow 02. 12.02.14

______________________________

See the folks in the RED scarves? They’re the Profsoyuz people… the kind of people hated and despised by the Republican Party! Yet, HH thinks that they’re good company (and so do I). Note well that he doesn’t put this on with oligarchs or any other such inhuman trash. He puts it on with ordinary people.

Yes, sir… HH holds MANY things hated by the Republican Party. For one, he DEMANDS an end to the American economic blockade of Cuba. These images show his stance on Cuba:

******

04 Raul Castro with Patriarch Kirill

******

Castro and Metropolitan Kirill Gundyaev

______________________________

That is, HH is PRO-CUBA all the way!

HH has a definite opinion on single-payer healthcare… he’s FOR it! Look at this:

******

01 His Holiness Patriarch Kirill with Cuban Ambassador and Cuban MDs

______________________________

HH is with Cuban doctors… he thinks that Cuban socialised medicine ROCKS.

HH HONOURS the real achievements of the USSR. For instance, look at the image below:

******

00 Patriarch Kirill. Mamayev Kurgan. Volgograd. 09.02.14

______________________________

HH showed his respect for the Great Victory… after all, he WAS a Soviet patriot, and, yes, he DID aid the intelligence arm of the KGB. He saw the TRUTH of the West, and it sickened him to no end.

HH is STILL a LEFTY… look at this:

******

04a Kirill and Zyuganov

******

04b Kirill and Zyuganov

______________________________

That’s Gennady Andreyevich Zyuganov, the head of the KPRF. Gennady Andreyevich and HH know each other personally and get on well.

HH also shows us the way in re proper relations with those of other faiths:

******

00 Patr Kirill with Shaolin Abbot. 01a. 08.09.13

******

00.0b Patr Kirill and Central Spirtual Board of Russian Muslims. 15.06.12

_____________________________

My, my, my… he doesn’t pour invective on Muslims, does he? We should do likewise!

He also shows us the way to treat our Oriental Orthodox co-religionists:

******

00.00 Patr Kirill and Patr Karekin 11.11

______________________________

That’s HH and Catholicos Karekin… the leader of the Armenian Apostolic Church. Russia has ALWAYS had Armenia‘s back… and the Armenians know it.

THIS is where HH spends major holidays:

******

00 Patriarch Kirill. Moscow. Rehabilitation Centre. Easter 2013. 05.05.13

******

00b Patriarch Kirill. 04.09.12 Central Pediatric Oncology Hospital

******

01j Patriarch Kirill at SPB Orphanage 11.10

******

00 Patr Kirill 3. sick kids. 01.12

______________________________

HH spends the holidays with sick and poor kids… that’s our LEADER!

******

00 Patr Kirill and Pres Obama 01

______________________________

If you want to know HH’s opinion on US President Barack Obama… look at the above…

You can follow HH or you can follow the loudmouth internet righties… that’s the real-world choice on offer. I’ve chosen… there’s no doubt on where I stand. Where do YOU stand?

Putin Said That He and His Wife are Divorcing

00 Vladimir Putin. Russia. wedding. 12.06

______________________________

On 6 June, President Vladimir Putin and his wife Lyudmila Putina announced that their marriage is over. Putin said that there was no need for a Church divorce from Lyudmila, since there was no Church wedding. Putin told RT Television, “As far as the religious side of things is concerned, we don’t have to do anything, as we never got married in Church. In fact, both Lyudmila and I want to speak openly and honestly about what’s happening. This is a much better way of behaving than running and hiding”.

Last Thursday, the president and his wife attended the ballet La Esmeralda at the State Kremlin Palace. A little later, in a television interview, they announced that they decided to divorce after nearly 30 years of marriage. Presidential spokesman Dmitri Peskov said that Putin and his wife haven’t yet formalised their divorce, stating, “They said that they decided to divorce; I can’t say when it’ll be fully legalised, but that isn’t as important as the announcement of the decision”. He noted that Putin’s schedule, including a full travel agenda, is well known. For some time, the president and his wife haven’t lived together. Replying to a question whether Lyudmila Putina, who comes from Kaliningrad, will live in Moscow or whether she’d return home, Peskov said that he hadn’t the right to interfere in anyone’s personal life or comment upon it. He said that the Putins said what they had to say on their divorce, it’s not yet time to make further details public. He noted, on the topic of a possible presidential elopement, “I’ll give you what Vladimir Vladimirovich and Lyudmila Aleksandrovna said, in their words. As for what’s out there, it’s nothing but gossip, rumours, and speculation. It isn’t difficult to look at Putin’s work schedule. It isn’t rocket science. When you do, you realise that his life is probably, unfortunately, devoid of most personal relationships; it’s all too full of the responsibilities and obligations that he bears as the Head of State”.

Editor’s Note:

There is a major difference between the Church and the papists in the matter of marriage and divorce. For one thing, we hold that civil marriages are “marriages indeed”. That being said, most priests would prefer couples to have a religious Church wedding as well as the registry office affair. However, if one only has a civil wedding, one is considered “married” by the Church. You can have a Church ceremony as well (indeed, it’s preferable to have both), but it’s not strictly and formally necessary for a marriage to occur. After all, marriage as a religious rite is a somewhat late development, relatively-speaking… I’m not denigrating religious marriage; I’m merely pointing up that it wasn’t a primitive facet of Church life. Besides this, the Church accepts that marriages sometimes fail, that divorce is, sometimes, the only way out of a nasty situation for both parties. I agree with VVP, “In fact, both Lyudmila and I want to speak openly and honestly about what’s happening. This is a much better way of behaving than running and hiding”. This is going to INCREASE VVP’s cred… he’s being open and honest about his sticky personal life. Shit happens…
