It’s Everyday

Yesterday all the plans were set aside and anything that either Sveta or I had to do was delayed. I had to go to the doctor and have some issues checked out and that is what we did. I will not go into details about the visit to the doctor as I have told many times that healthcare in Russia (At least for me.) is excellent and this visit was no different. The reason that I am writing today is about what I see as an American when I walk or drive Russia…

Speak the truth!
Even if your voice shakes!

I still find it amazing that all the years that I was being propagandized and I mean years and years. None of the propaganda was true. Not even a little bit of it. I would have thought that the west could have at least intermingled some truth amongst the lies. No, they wanted nothing but adulterated propaganda and that is what they feed Americans. That is what they still feed Americans and most of the western people…

It is not worth talking to you about all the crap that is being fed to you and you will not believe me anyway. You have to understand that you are living in a media blackout of the world and it is gotten away with, because hardly anyone leaves the US and if they do, 90% go to another western country. Fear keeps everyone at home and propaganda fear is the name of the game. Done by the media with a helping hand from the government…

So I will talk about what I see…

Sveta and I live in a wonderful suburb of Moscow and we are located very central to everything in the city. I switched doctor offices about a year ago, my original cardiologist had retired and I decided that being close to home with medical care is the best option. So Sveta found a wonderful clinic, within walking distance and the doctors are simply topnotch…

A walk to the clinic entails about a kilometer and a half. In that walk you can see an incredible variety of Russian life. New Russian flats, old Soviet flats, old Soviet homes, new Russian homes and even the Remanent of a village. The walk will bring you amongst the chess playing elder men, to the tree swinging kids as they play in the yards and playgrounds supplied to all people to enjoy. These parks and playgrounds are plentiful and always busy…

I have watched in 7 years that I have been here, the disappearance of the cheap little garages that people bought and placed anywhere and everywhere they could. Incredible eyesores and I for one am glad that the local governments are trashing that things, but this kind of stuff is not what really goes through my mind as I walk to the doctor…

I find it amazing that these people are just like you and I. These people are young, old, weak, strong, mean, fat, skinny, wild, calm and a thousand other things. They are just like you, except in one major area…

They do not live off of governmental handouts. The society virtually does not have handouts and you survive on your own wisdom and abilities. There is none of this welfare stuff and food stamp stuff and and and and…

I watch America and realize that the society is about 50/50! 50% give me the handouts type people, to 50% work to support the other 50% of give me people. That just is not right and will never be right in anyone’s book. Or I should say anyone’s book but people trying to buy off the votes…

So as I walk to the doctor, I see a babushka sitting under a shade tree and she is selling homemade sauerkraut. I see a little veggy stand, selling vegetables that are brought daily from a supplier. The stand is most likely not really legal, but who cares? No one – as this stand helps get fresh fruit and vegetables to the people living in flats who are not able to walk very far. Just like the guy who drives around and sells meat from the back of his van, or the babushka that pushes a cart full of hand picked mushrooms, mushrooms, that she at 80 plus years old, walked kilometers and gathered herself. This is life and all these people selling things are mixed into the shadows as children run, jump and play all over the place…

It is hard to understand when you sit in a country like America and all you hear is bad Russia, bad Russia and evil Russia. Why all you hear now is how terrible that Russia is to gay people. The western media is tossing the fact that Russia will murder and imprison gay athletes at the Olympics coming up and that we must boycott those Olympics. This is typical trash media from the west and that is all you really get access to 90% of the time, unless you make an effort to look around, you will never see anything but – Bad Russia…

Guess what?

I see real people, real life, real issues and real happiness. That is Russia and that is a fact. Russians are just like you, they are not an evil – “baby eating, gay bashing, vodka drinking society!” But if the western media had you convinced, you would think that Russia is the scum of the earth, just like Iran, North Korea and many others. It is what is forced down our throats and it is a lie…

Want the truth? I walk Russia and I wonder to myself, “Why is the USA so scared of the people knowing the truth? Why does the government and media work so hard to lie? Why can we not just be friends and have peace and quiet?”

There is a saying that fits this post: “you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” John 8:32…

Wow Jesus said that…
