Friday's Fulminations

There is mild moderation.  Normal rules of blogger etiquette and courtesy to blog hosts will apply.with serious transgressors being thrown out.

Unfortunately our system does not allow your comments to show up in the blog post itself.  Just in the comments section.

Visitors might consider the wisdom of using moderate language.

Andrei.....It's called Democracy when people can say silly things and express their opinion however bizarre without having their career prospects fucked by the system.

Please stop using this blog to promote the Putin admin. Would you like me to post a few clips of Russian parliament punch ups.....grown ups in action.

Please stop telling other commenters what they may comment on and what they may not.

If you want to do so, go and start your own blog.

Andrei said...

LOL Egbut Aleksandr Fedulov called Gennady Zyuganov "a political whore" and Vasiliy Shandybin, who was a boiler maker in a past life, saw red

Pretty old video - Shandybin lost his seat in the Duma in 2003 and died in 2009 so that is ancient history - no? Far older than the Tau Henry, Trvour Mallard stoush

Egbut, watch out as Adolf is just another Putin sock puppet. I wouldn't be surprised if Andrei is just Adolf with another nym.

Trump continues to fellate Putin while America burns.

Andrei said...

No I'm not Adolf, Bunbury Baker, and Adolf isn't me

We used to blog together a very, very long time ago though on Sir Humphreys.

This blog is a spin off of that one - Nick K used to blog there under another name I think and Pyscho Milt as well, if I recall correctly, for a short time before its demise

The idea is open dialogue - hearing other peoples point of view and hopefully understanding it , if not fully agreeing with it perhaps.

And what is the point of a blog if views you might not agree with are suppressed?

Not only boring but unenlightening

"And what is the point of a blog if views you might not agree with are suppressed?"

Agree, which is why I come here, even though I find many of the views abhorrent. Know thy enemy, and all that Jazz. But I do wish you could get Adolf to understand that.

pdm said...

Egbut - I agree with what Adolf said about you telling commenters here what they can and cannot say.

Andrei - why not blog again here - I for one would welcome you on board.

Adolf Fiinkensein said...

David, there you go again with your snide little lies on the side.

No one has been banned from my blog for expressing a contrarian point of view.

Many have been banned for bad behaviour which in entirely different.

David said...

Adolf, how would anyone know? You delete but provide no context. When all we can see is "This post has been removed by a blog administrator" we may assume it is because it was a view you did not like.

Adolf Fiinkensein said...

No, you may not assume anything of the sort.

Anonymous said...

Walter.....from one who has been deleted innumerable times because of who I am and not because of content I can say without fear of contradiction that you lie even when you are upright.

When someone from an authoritarian and failed state starts criticising open debate I will tell him to fuck off. Your love of Trump and Putin has not gone unnoticed.

Lord Egbut

Andrei said...

Nobody is criticizing open debate" Egbut

What is being criticized is what is being said!

In particular comparing Russia's hosting of the 2018 World Cup to Nazi Germany's hosting of the 1936 Olympics is particularly scurrilous

And ironic given the Great Britain participated in those Olympics and the Soviet Union didn't

Here's a blast from the past 1938 to be precise

Anonymous said... miss the point entirely. In the western democracies HE IS ALLOWED TO SAY IT. Johnston is a first class tit and I have no time for him. There plenty in Russia who think Putin is involved BUT THEY ARE NOT ALLOWED TO SAY IT for fear of you get it now?

Any one who wishes to comment about Russia and It's "legal" mafia should read this before putting finger to key.

Yes Egbut I do get it - you know absolutely nothing about Russia circa 2018 nor anything about Russian people

A local issue, inolving the Governor of the Moscow region, a little girl and fumes from a land fill

All over the local news

Repetition, deviation and hesitation......your time is up.

RIP.. Lt Col Arnaud Beltrame. Military cross winner in Afghanistan who, in a an extraordinary act of self sacrifice, volunteered as a hostage replacement knowing that his chances of survival were zero to minimal.
