The Myth, Mystique and Offense of Christopher Columbus

Posted on October 10, 2017 at 9:10 PM

When I first conceived the move to America, I knew so very little about it.

The 1970’s. Long gasoline lines, anti-police protests, protests by the blacks against exploitation by whites were pretty much the USSR nightly TV newsfare.

At school it was the petitions to free Angela Davis: at home – the bass of Paul Robson came from the radio. There was a cute ch...

English Lesson 1 for Native Speakers: In Conjunction

Posted on September 27, 2017 at 11:55 AM

My very first English lesson happened when I was about five in my Soviet Union pre-school.

Here’s what we were taught to sing:

Good morning, good morning, good morning to you.

Good morning, good morning, we are glad to see you.

I was obsessed with the sound of foreign words, which seemed to just roll off my tongue in a mysterious way.

It was the day when, I believe, I understood the blessing human beings have in understanding ...

My Friend David C

Posted on April 22, 2017 at 3:10 PM

My friend David C was born on November 7th in the USSR.

"What a joke!" he used to joke, smiling sardonically, because deep down he kinda liked being born on The Great October Bolshevik Revolution Day." It made him special. Everyone remembered his birthday. It was so hard to forget the day ingrained in our Socialist being by our Socialist Educators. David was so anti-Soviet, anti-Socialist, anti-Communist, anti-USSR. More so than many people I have met and I've known plenty who were anti...

Hatred

Posted on March 24, 2017 at 5:05 PM

   Hatred is the ultimate form of expressing envy. All the hate-Trump people, in lesser or greater from, are experiencing the uncontrollable surge of envy at the win of the other party candidate. It is also being fueled by the expert envy-fuel-mongers, who like to strike matches amid the envy fumes permiating the air.

Another riot, another policeman murder, another ha...

21st Century Feminism: Heels, a backward move

Posted on March 21, 2017 at 7:30 PM

Whenever my husband and I get dressed up to attend a big deal event I still put on my high heel shoes. Not as high as I regularly wore in my tweenties and thirties, but high enough to slow me down,

Sans heels, I walk as fast as my husband and have no problem keeping up with his pace. However, with heels, I am always seven steps behind him, like the Japanese wives... No matter how I ask, remind, beg and demand, we can never get in sync when I'm all heeled up. My husband, you see, walks o...

Meeting Dr. Zuhdi Jasser

Posted on February 23, 2017 at 4:35 PM

Today is 100 years since the February Revolution which overthrew the Romanoffs in Russia - Google it to learn more! After that came the Bolshevik Revolution, which among other actions subdued all Islamic nations in Russia’s collection of subdued nations and kept violent Islam from spreading while Socialism was in control. I am not against Islam. I do, however, understand it the least of the 3 religions sharing the same God. I am afraid of terrorism, which is 100% Islamic! Dr. Jasser und...

Trump is to Hitler like Obama to God

Posted on February 14, 2017 at 10:15 PM

It the era of fakes the real is struggling for acceptance by the fakers. It's a logical development in the world where reality TV blurred any recognition of reality.

It is irresponsible and destructive to compare Capitalist Donald Trump, a self-made man, who was revered by his very destroyers until he became a Republican frontrunner in the 2016 election field, to a man who destroyed 12 million people by murdering them without the use of weapons of mass destruction. Hitler, the fanatica...

Day 7-8 Melania and The Liberals

Posted on January 27, 2017 at 9:30 PM

Melania is a beautiful intelligent woman, who speaks many languages and is holding her own in this powerful family. The attacks she and her child were subjected to thus far are appauling. I, for one, made fun of the Obamas for naming their daughter Natasha (Sasha for short) because that is stupid! Natasha and Sasha are 2 absolutely distinct names, but the Red fervor the Obamas displayed there says it all. But I was never-ever-ever making fun of their girls. Only the liberals (read tyrants) of...

Day 6 Visas, Wall, Hold the MONEY...DOW 20,000

Posted on January 25, 2017 at 8:05 PM

The liberal socialists, communists and other idiots who support Islam, because they are either too stoned or too ignorant to understand the danger, are now creating the narrative of an unhappy idiots Trump family so that they can take control and continue where Obama did not finish the dissimation of this wonderful nation USA.

In 6 days of just working - not gulfing, lunching, redecorating his offices or other bull - our President Trump had signed intelligent acts, which will begin brin...
