Russian Freedoms and a Cup of Coffee…

This morning was cold and frosty in the low lying areas. So that cup of coffee was extra special on this May morning. It did not get cold enough to hurt anything but it came close. We finally have crocuses, tulips and jonquils blooming… 🙂

So as I usually do, I was doing some thinking’s while sipping that coffee…

There is times that I am just amazed at my little sweetie! She is the smartest girl I know and she does not even realize that she is that smart. Everything about Sveta is the same as I am, but with different attributes to use those abilities. She has tons of patience and I have tons of “jump of the cliff” and make it work. She loves my ability to instigate and create, new and better. I love her ability to make my creations come to life. Her an I think alike, but we go about solving the issue different ways. I have said before that Sveta is the IBM Server administrator at the huge Gazprom Bank in Russia. She has a job that I could have only dreamed about while living in America in the past. Now I see first hand what a computer wizard can do…

So while sipping that cup of coffee this morning, I am thinking about how Sveta and I moved the to a new server and it was just plain slick. We even changed our name-servers to Free DNS and the response times have improved drastically. As I said yesterday, we are out from under the giant elephant that was sitting on our back and that is a tremendous relief to me. Now maybe I can get back to writing again and not trying to keep the dogs at bay…

Now I was also thinking about the fact that Sveta and I are going to try to make it to the Village this upcoming weekend. Moscow is a madhouse this week coming up, due to Victory Day Parade on the 9th and it is better for us to just leave town. Maybe I can convince Sveta to leave Boza and I at the village for a month! The village home needs the work and I and Boza need the country life. Besides we have to finish the fence that did not get done before Winter slammed us last year…

I would rather Sveta be with us, but her vacation days need to go to better things such as a trip to China or something. Actually I also want to go to Vietnam and revisit some places from the old days…

But what I want and what we do is always two different things! That is okay because I like to dream about somethings, like going to Iran, Pakistan, India and about 100 other places in the world. The perfect life would be to live 5 years in as many countries as you can. Live 5 years in China and 5 years in India and so on and so on and so on…

Okay now it is time to jump for joy and dance in the streets with all you might! Russia jumped one position in the 2012 Press Freedom report by the Washington-based Freedom House think tank, from 173th in 2011 to 172nd in 2012, but is still ranked on par with Azerbaijan and Zimbabwe.

What a fantastic thing to have done! The Western sponsored think tank was very generous and we should all bow down and thank the great Western monolith for the honor…

I find it strange that we, an American and Russian who have 30+ blogs and websites on many many subjects that have to do with virtually everything in the world. Would work so hard to move our websites to (not away from) Russia and other countries to keep our freedoms alive and not be squelched by the Western tyrants…

So after my coffee this morning, I am going to dance for joy at the fact that Russia has made great strides in freedoms and the West has been so nice as to acknowledge those freedoms. Even though the West says that Russia is “Not Free!”

You do realize that they call Russia “Not Free!” But yet here I am living, breathing, walking, traveling, dancing, working, dealing, communicating, analyzing and transacting on a daily basis in Russia and have no issues with freedoms. Neither does anyone else and it seems that no one asks me to report on the state of Russian freedoms. I guess they would not like what I have to say in the Western world think tank called Freedom House…

Do you realize that I am so free in Russia, that I can chose what coffee I want to drink and what coffee I want to brew and I have a thousand types of coffee to chose from? Do you realize that I am so free in Russia that I can have my coffee with cream or milk and or just plain black if I so desire? Do you realize that I can brew my coffee or even buy freeze dried instant and make my coffee exactly how I want to? You say that so can you as you drink your coffee this morning? Well then that is my point! Wat makes Russia “Not Free”? I can do everything you do and most likely do many more things than that you use to be able to do, but now have lost the ability to do them…

Actually I will dance for joy and it has to do with the fact that we got our website out from under a repressive system of censorship, stifling of freedoms and deceitful lies. Somethings are really worth dancing over and Russian freedom of the Internet is one of those things…

Don’t like it? Then come to Russia and find out the truth!

PS: What irks me is that to call Russia “Not Free” as they do in the report is such a flagrant lie that it makes the whole report worthless and very biased…

Oh I have to mention something: Americans like to toss around the fact that they have guns! Guns and more guns! As if that is a freedom and the cats meow to all freedoms. Well sorry to disappoint you but Russians have guns and many many Russians have guns. Hunting is a huge sport in Russia and shotguns are very common in the villages and so are rifles. There is hunting seasons for animals just like in America. Who would have thought – Huh! Anyone who desires a gun can get one and it is not a sterile world of no weapons. That is confusing to many Americans and actually I was surprised years ago, when I realized that many Russians have guns of various types. Handguns are not very popular but hunting weapons are and they are common…
