North New Jersey Ukrainians....

STA isn't in North Jersey but Abe is.

I wonder what church STA attends? IF he goes to church, that is.

The closest one to Estell Manor would be St. Anthony of Padua in Hammonton, or possibly St. Stephen's Ukrainian Catholic church in Toms River

As for "Jewish" Abe in the Basking Ridge/Bridgewater area, the nearest church is St. Michael the Archangel Ukrainian Catholic church in Hillsborough or possibly the Nativity-Blessed Virgin Mary in New Brunswick.

Though I really doubt either of them attend church. If they walked into a church, the walls would violently react and the whole church would collapse trying to keep them out.

These Ukrainian churches deserve a lot of credit for contributing to the election process of Ukraine and getting Ukraine a decent president.

STA has supported the Ukrainian people and I support his support of the Ukrainian people.

It is very impressive how many people come together to vote for the new president, even from all over the world. North America can learn from this, voter apathy is very strong, Obama learned how to mobilize the youth, and in Canada again it is the youth that is stepping up, adults tend to think their vote wont make a difference or they cannot get the time of work or it is a nuisance. So somehow this needs to turn around. I did read one article that said at one time voting was mandatory in Ukraine, so maybe that is how the pattern started.

I thought it was illegal for you "Canadian" Ukrainians to go back just to vote? I assume it would be illegal for any Uke who has become a citizen of another country.
Of course you don't care if it's legal or not! I doubt anything you do is legal! Or honest!

Of course it would not be accepted, dummy, if they are Canadians then they have no vote, are you saying they can vote in the US if they are Ukrainians???

What did you say?

"It is very impressive how many people come together to vote for the new president, even from all over the world."

I assumed Canada is part of "the world". Is it??

Only Ukrainian citizens can vote in Ukrainian elections. Second and third generation Ukranian Canadian citizens can't, you fatass dumbo!

So first generations (immigrants) can vote? I thought it was illegal to have dual citizenship in Ukraine? Didn't Ukraine pass a law to keep the ones who emigrated to Canada from coming back and voting? They would ignore that law, of course, and vote anyway. They are incredibly dishonest people and traitors to their new homeland.

How do you know they've got dual nationality? Only people who live in Ukraine can vote in Ukraine, everybody there receives an invitation to vote, when they go and vote they hand in their invititation, their name and address is found on a list and is crossed off, which means no multiple voting and no outsiders are allowed to vote.

And if they don't like the results of the vote, they plot to overthrow the government.

In any legitimate democracy, it would be the coup plotters who would be labeled traitors.

In Ukraine, the fascist plotters get to call those who oppose them traitors.

No wonder the East seceded.

So you don't consider people who are trying to divide Ukraine and hand it's territory to Putin traitors.

No wonder you wore the dunce's hat when you were at Harvard.:-)

There is a sequence of events to follow.

The original coup plotters were traitors to the elected government. How can the ones who oppose the traitors themselves be traitors?

You really have a serious problem with cognitive reasoning.

Then you're a traitor to your elected government if you're really American as you oppose everything they do.
A person who tries to divide a country and waves the flag of another country is a traitor and is guilty of treason.

You're really boring me.

Waving the wolfsangel flag at Maidan must have meant the 'peaceful protesters' thought they were in the Third Reich.

Besides, the East seceded. That's sometimes what happens when unconstitutional coups negate their democratic will. Live with it.

What do you do for a living anyway, Puke?

I've been having this persistent notion lately that you're a bagboy at the local supermarket.

Am I even close?
