pentru detinerea legala de arme in scopul autoapararii.

Daca exista vointa si mai ales curajul sa iei viata unei persoane, poti folosi alte mijloace, nu la fel de mecanizate...dar cu efectul final dorit.

Exemple sint o gramada, de la cutit si otravire...la "caramida" in cap sau impingerea in fata tramvaiului, cureaua pantalonilor cu scopul sugrumarii sau "perna pe fata" cu efectul axfisierii.........
O arma in casa, te aduce la egalitate cu cel mai notoriu "spargator"...nu mai conteaza ca esti batrin, sex-ul, muschii, inaltimea, boala sau alt dezavantaj.

Prin al doilea amendment al constitutiei americane, este legal sa ai arma in casa pentru autoaparare...dar exista si un alt motiv (este tara noua, cum spune unu', dar cea mai veche democratica).

second amendment of Bill of Rights:

"A WELL REGULATED MILITIA, BEEING NECESSARY TO THE SECURITY OF A FREE STATE, THE RIGHT OF THE PEOPLE TO BEAR ARMS, SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED".......poate fi un motiv pentru mentinerea unui sistem democratic, sau nu?

salutari,

"A WELL REGULATED MILITIA, BEING NECESSARY TO THE SECURITY OF A FREE STATE, THE RIGHT OF THE PEOPLE TO BEAR ARMS, SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED".......poate fi un motiv pentru mentinerea unui sistem democratic, sau nu?

Ca intotdeauna, detaliile conteaza. Cit de usor sau cit de greu e sa obtii un pistol. De exemplu, in Canada ESTE voie sa detii arma de foc daca vrei si daca te CALIFICI! Dar nu e atit de usor sa obtii permis. Ca sa va dati seama si sa comparati cu alte sisteme, dau sumarul linkului urmator (care e in engleza):
http://laws.justice.gc.ca/en/F-11.6/59456.html#rid-59493
Nu intru in detalii, dar dupa legea canadiana, poti obtine permis de a avea arma, daca nu exista evidenta ca in ultimii 5 ani te-ai purtat violent cu cineva, sau daca ai fost gasit vinovat de vreo crima violenta, daca ai amenintat pe cineva, daca te-au prins cu droguri si ai fost gasit vinovat de judecator, sau daca ai probleme mintale. In plus, nu obtii permis daca nu faci cursul pentru folosirea si securitatea armelor de foc si treci examenele. Ca orice sistem, nu este perfect, si nu poate fi.

Daca e asa de bine ca oricine sa poata obtine un pistol, si daca e asa de necesar pentru functionarea corecta a statului, de ce atunci nu da statul un pistol fiecarui cetatean cind isi obtine cetatenia, daca are bani sa-l cumpere?

Ce e important aici este ca, cu toate ca e posibil pentru mine sa obtin acest permis si sa cumpar un pistol cam in vreo sase luni la un an daca incep procesul acum, fiindca e asa de greu, stiu ca majoritatea populatiei nu are arme, si decid sa-mi asum riscul de a nu detine o arma. Da, stiu ca borfasii si gangsterii au arme, si sper sa nu ne lovim valizele in gara, dar asta-i viata. Daca as trai in Afganistan, as gindi altfel, dar deocamdata, slava Domnului, unde locuiesc acum un ciine ar furniza indeajunsa securitate fizica si psihica mie si familiei mele. Poate ca de-aia, daca as fi limitat la un singur pet, as prefera ciine in loc de pisica.

Alte exemple: Anglia, Franta, Germania, sint democratice indeajuns fara multitudinea de arme de foc din US. Cum se spune: "to each his own"! Celor care le plac control putin asupra armelor, vor fi fericiti in US. Ceilalti nu vor fi.

Ozzy, acum ca ai aflat ce parere au si altii asupra acestui subiect, poate ne spui parerea ta despre parerile altora.

Am tot respectul pt munca cercetatorilor respectivi. In plus, sunt convins ca exista si un sens pozitiv al acestui experiment.
Insa nu vad nimic divin in asta.
Divin ar fi sa 'creezi' ceva, nu sa 'transformi' sau sa 'combini' ceva.
Aia e tehnica...superioara, admirabila, poate si benefica.

M-am prins acum :-)

Oricum negarea "conceptiei imaculate" cred ca se refera mai putin la aspectul tehnic al problemei, ci mai degraba la negarea paternitatii divine a lui Iisus. Nu numai ateii liberi cugetatori si scepticii o pun sub semnul indoielii, ci si Islamul (Coranul) care il aseaza cu respectul cuvenit pe Iisus in randul profetilor, insa numai atat.

Lectura de luni; de pe o lista de discutii adevarate - de Dinu Lazar la: 25/04/2004 23:25:08
(la: O conversatie cu DINU LAZAR, fotograf)
Gordon Parks is and always has been one of my personal heroes.
Born in FT Scott, KS in 1915, he spent his early years in Kansas City.
The camera was his "weapon of choice" (his phrase) to battle bigotry, racism and prejudice, upholding the very best ideals of photojournalism.
He did groundbreaking photo essays for Life magazine. But his creative energies and considerable intellect also pushed him to be a director of films, including "Shaft;" he choreographed a ballet, is a poet, musician, and author of a number of books.
In today's Kansas City Star there is an excellent page one article by Lisa Gutierrez with terrific photos by Dolores Johnson.> If you don't have access to a copy, here is the online link:

http://www.kansascity.com/mld/kansascity/

I respectfully submit that if you can afford to spend ten minutes out of what I am sure is a busy day, it would be worthwhile reading.

Stiu ca astea's vechi dar sunt anti-misogin :)) - de Ly la: 27/04/2004 13:30:38
(la: Femeia)
Subject: wife vs husband!

A couple drove down a country road for several miles, not saying a
word. An earlier discussion had led to an argument and neither of
them wanted to concede their position. As they passed a barnyard of mules,
goats, and pigs, the husband asked sarcastically, "Relatives of
yours?"

"Yep," the wife replied, "in-laws."

-----------------

A husband read an article to his wife about how many words women use
a day... 30,000 to a man's 15,000.

The wife replied, "The reason has to be because we have to repeat
everything to men..

The husband then turned to his wife and asked, "What?"

--------------

A man said to his wife one day, "I don't know how you can be so
stupid and so beautiful all at the same time.

" The wife responded, "Allow me to explain. God made me beautiful so
you would be attracted to me; God made me stupid so I would be
attracted to you!

---------------------

A man and his wife were having an argument about who should brew the
coffee each morning.

The wife said, "You should do it, because you get up first, and then
we don't have to wait as long to get our coffee."

The husband said, " You are in charge of cooking around here and you
should do it, because that is your job, and I can just wait for my
coffee."

Wife replies, "No, you should do it, and besides, it is in the Bible
that the man should do the coffee."

Husband replies, "I can't believe that, show me."

So she fetched the Bible, and opened the New Testament and showed him
at the top of several pages, that it indeed says...

Marele savant NiKola Tesla a fost roman - de SB_one la: 05/05/2004 12:03:18
(la: Jos palaria!)
Marele savant NiKola Tesla a fost roman
>Era istro-roman de origine si il chema Nicolae Teslea
>Marele savant si inventator Nicolae Teslea (Nikola Tesla) s-a nascut in noaptea de 9 spre 10 iulie 1856, ca fiu al preotului ortodox Milutin Teslea si al Gicai Mandici. Familia tatalui era de
>graniceri antiotomani, in fostul imperiu austro-ungar.
>Numele initial de familie era Draghici, dar el a fost inlocuit in timp, prin porecla de Teslea, dupa meseria transmisa in familie, de dulgher (teslari). Tatal lui Nicu Teslea (Tesla) a mai avut un
>frate, Iosif, militar de cariera, care dupa absolvirea scolii de ofiteri a predat matematica in diferite scoli militare, ca pana la urma sa ajunga profesor la Academia de Razboi din Viena. Tatal lui
>Teslea, initial, si el elev la scoala militara, si-a schimbat repede profesia, trecand la seminarul teologic, devenind preot ortodox in 1845, cand s-a insurat cu Gica. Biserica in care a slujit
>initial parintele Teslea se gasea in comuna Similian, la poalele muntilor Velebiti, acoperiti de paduri de stejar, fag si corn, in provincia Lica, cu centrul la Gospici, unde a fost transferat si
>parintele.
>Henri Coanda il prezinta pe marele inventator Tesla ca roman banatean din Banatul sarbesc, dar realitatea era ca prietenul sau Nicolae era istro-roman din Croatia. Provincia Lica era locuita compact
>de istro-romanii morlaci, inca din sec. XV-XVI. Gospici se afla la cativa kilometri de tarmurile Marii Adriatice, iar satul Similian la 12 km de Gospici, satul fiind patria lui Tesla, Teslea, Tesla.
>Preotul, om cult, se interesa cu precadere de literatura, filosofie, stiinte naturale si matematica. Incercarea de desnationalizare i-a adunat pe morlaci sub stindardul bisericii ortodoxe.
>Mama lui Teslea, Gica Mandici, romanca si ea dupa nume, a ramas - copila fiind - orfana, si a trebuit sa se ocupe de cei sase frati mai mici. Tatal sau a refuzat s-o trimita la o scoala in limba
>straina, dar ca autodidacta si-a completat cultura ca eleva a sotului ei. In casa preotului se stransese, cum am vazut mai sus, o vasta biblioteca din felurite domenii, mai mult stiintifice. Gica era
>vestita datorita frumoaselor broderii pe care le facea.
>Teslea a mai avut un frate, Dan, mort tanar intr-un accident, si trei surori: Anghelina, Milica si Marita, mezina pe care a iubit-o cel mai mult.
>Despre familia Teslea s-ar putea povesti mult.
>Nicolae, inventatorul, si-a facut studiile la Karlovat si la Politehnica din Graz (1875-1881). Isi incepe celebrele descoperiri si inventii inca din 1881-1882 la Graz, la Budapesta, la Paris, in
>cadrul Companiei Edison (1882), Strasbourg (1884), dupa care porneste in vajnica odisee americana.
>Cand zici Nicolae Teslea (1856-1943), te gandesti la istro-romanul devenit cetatean american, omul de stiinta si inventatorul prolific in domeniul electro si radiotehnicii, descoperitorul campului
>magnetic invartitor (simultan cu italianul Galileo Ferraris, 1847-1897). Tot el a inventat si sistemul bifazat de curent electric alternativ si a studiat curentul de inalta frecventa. El a construit
>primele motoare asincrone bifazate, generatoarele electrice, transformatorul electric de inalta frecventa etc. In atomistica, a cercetat fisiunea nucleelor atomice, cu ajutorul generatorului
>electrostatic de inalta tensiune. Noi, romanii, am uitat sa-l comemoram la 140 de ani de la nastere, cand Tesla a fost pomenit doar, intr-o scurta comunicare de 15 minute la Academie, de prof. N.
>Leonachescu.
>Inventia fenomenului "camp electric invartitor" se naste in 1882 la Budapesta, dar imediat, in baza unei recomandari, Teslea pleaca la Paris, unde este angajat la "Compania continentala Edison". Aici,
>modifica dinamo-masina Edison. In cadrul aceleiasi companii, construieste centrala electrica Strasbourg. Desi i se promisesera 25.000 dolari la incheierea dificilei lucrari, a fost frustrat de
>gratificatii. Unul din asistentii lui Edison, Charles Bechelore, ii propune sa emigreze in America si ii da o scrisoare de recomandare pentru Edison personal (1884). Dupa unele peripetii (i s-au furat
>banii in gara Le Havre), se adreseaza proprietarului vasului, care ii intelege situatia (biletul si locul ii apartineau, fiind nominalizat), si pe baza documentului de bord este primit si astfel, fara
>bilet, ajunge la New-York, unde se prezinta la Edison. Este primit cu dificultati si raceala, dar in baza recomandarii scrise, este angajat in atelierele companiei, ca inginer-electrician pentru
>repararea motoa-relor si generatoarelor de curent continuu Edison.
>O situatie neprevazuta il face sa se remarce in mod deosebit (1885). Transatlanticul Oregon, dotat cu generator Edison, care se defectase, trebuia sa plece spre Europa la data fixa; avea toate
>locurile vandute si intarzierea le-ar fi adus armatorilor mari pagube. Firma lui Edison il insarcineaza pe Teslea sa repare scurt-circuitul generatorului, cauza pe care o descopera in spirele
>infasurarii bobinei si o remediaza, rebobinand-o in 20 de ore. Edison ii promisese un premiu de 50.000 dolari daca defectiunea este indepartata in timp util plecarii vasului la data prenotata. Nava
>pleaca la timp, dar promisiunea premiului se transforma in explicatii: fusese o gluma. Nici alte gratificatii promise, de exemplu pentru perfectionarea generatoarelor si motoarelor electrice Edison in
>24 de variante, inzestrate cu un regulator si un nou tip de intrerupator, nu i se acorda. Edificat asupra conduitei lui Edison, Teslea va lucra de acum inainte pe cont propriu si va realiza
>definitivarea sistemului sau original, bazat pe curenti alternativi polifazati. Trecerea timpului ii da dreptate lui Teslea in competitia sa cu Edison si treptat, teza sa privind curentul alternativ
>se impune.
>Din primavara lui 1885, mandrul Teslea refuza sa mai colaboreze cu Edison si lucreaza independent, infiintandu-si propria firma, "Tesla Arc Light Company".
>Intr-o discutie cu Henri Coanda, inregistrata pe magnetofon, marele savant mi-a declarat personal ca il cunoscuse pe Teslea: "Eu l-am cunoscut pe Teslea, cand eram tanar de tot, prin tatal meu
>(Generalul Constantin Coanda - n.n.), care a fost intotdeauna langa mine. Nicolae Teslea, care este inventatorul curentului electric alternativ, era roman din Banat (era aroman - n.n.); e banatean, si
>felul lui de a gandi si de a vedea, m-a frapat enorm de mult. El era cu patru luni mai tanar fata de tatal meu, dar nu pot sa spun ca nu am fost influentat si de el, pentru ca felul lui de a vorbi si
>de a prezenta lucrurile erau asa de extraordinare incat, desi eram copil, n-am uitat. Vezi, unul din romanii foarte importanti, care a schimbat poate toata viata omenirii, e un banatean!...". Daca
>acum, sa zicem 150 de ani, s-ar fi spus, ar fi venit cineva sa ne spuna cum spunea Teslea Nicolae, Teslea, romanul din Banat: "Voi face lumina electrica, adica lumina, voi face asta miscand o bucata
>de fier in fata unui fir de arama", lumea l-ar fi inchis ca nebun. Intalnirea lui Coanda cu Teslea s-a petrecut in 1893, cand Teslea se afla in tara, datorita mortii mamei sale. Era deja celebru in
>lumea intreaga, in Romania insa mai putin.
>In noiembrie 1933, recent emigrat in SUA, Albert Einstein afla de cercetarile lui Tesla asupra fisiunii nucleare si cauta sa-l cunoasca. Apropierea se face cu ajutorul unui tanar reporter stiintific,
>Kenneth Sweasy, care se prezinta la Tesla cu o scrisoare de recomandare din partea lui Einstein. Teslea avea 75 de ani, in 1931, cand primeste scrisoarea lui Einstein. Cu prilejul sarbatoririi
>aniversarii sale, el marturiseste ca lucra la o noua sursa de energie, informatie care-l incita pe Einstein spre a-l cunoaste.
>Teslea se ocupa de campurile gravitationale (asemenea celui electromagnetic). Einstein ia cunostinta de articolul savantului roman din "Scientific American", bazat pe experientele efectuate la
>instalatia sa de la Institutul Tehnologic din Massachussetts (1934), pentru obtinerea tensiunilor inalte, cu ajutorul unui generator Van den Graaf, destinat cercetarii nucleului atomic.
>La 13 martie 1885, un incendiu distruge laboratorul lui Teslea din New York. Flacarile mistuie toate instalatiile de telegrafie si intreaga aparatura pentru obtinerea curentilor de inalta frecventa.
>Catastrofa il lasa sarac la batranete pe Teslea, fara mijloace financiare, dar savantul isi recompenseaza secretarele care-l parasesc, taind in doua medalia de aur Edison pe care o primise. Dupa ce
>incendiul laboratorului l-a lasat in strada (nefiind asigurat), Teslea s-a mutat intr-o modesta camera de hotel. Dar si in aceste conditii precare el isi continua cercetarile.
>In primavara lui 1898, Teslea demonstreaza public dirijarea prin radio, la mare distanta, a unui vas fara echipaj. Experientele au fost efectuate in largul marii, in apropiere de New York.
>In 1899, Teslea construieste la Colorado un mare post de radio, cu o putere de 200 kw, si realizeaza transmisii prin telegrafie fara fir, de peste 1000 km, face sa se aprinda lampile orasului de la
>distanta, obtine tensiuni de 12 milioane de volti.
>Edison si Teslea au fost propusi impreuna sa imparta premiul Nobel pentru fizica pe 1915, ca unii ce-si inchinasera viata pentru descoperiri si realizari tehnice utile omenirii. Teslea a refuzat
>premiul, din cauza animozitatilor din trecut. Dar era in 1916, si premiul pe acel an nu a mai fost acordat, din cauza razboiului mondial...
>Nicolae Teslea moare la New York, in noaptea de 7-8 ianuarie 1943 si este inmormantat la 12 ianuarie. O covarsitoare personalitate care a marcat doua secole prin geniul sau.

Hotzii... cine sunt hotzii???? - de Dinu Lazar la: 19/05/2004 15:25:37
(la: O conversatie cu DINU LAZAR, fotograf)
Who Are The Thieves?
````````````````````
Once a year, it seems, a question about thievery on the Internet comes up.
As I've written before -- thievery on the Web is certainly possible. With today's software capabilities, it's possible to 'res up' a 72 dpi image to 300 dpi with excellent results.
So, technically it's possible to "steal images" by capturing small images on the Web and increasing their resolution. In my book, sellphotos.com, I give some examples of misguided improper use of photos.
One example: A commercial printing company executive used a previously published photo from the company's digital file for unauthorized use in a commercial brochure. The photographer took him to court. And rightly so. But the infraction was a mistake -- not outright thievery.
As we rush pell-mell along in the new Digital Age, of course some honest mistakes are going to be made. We're all entitled to a few of those.

NOT OUR PHOTOBUYERS

However, since the emphasis at PhotoSource International is on editorial stock photography, not studio pictures, not commercial stock photos, we should keep in mind just who we are apprehensively thinking may steal a photo. Our markets are books and magazines. And relax: photobuyers at book and magazine publishing houses don't steal photos.
Nor do commercial art directors. The negative fall-out would be too damaging. But as I say, commercial photography is not our bailiwick. We have a greater advantage being editorial stock photographers-- we produce pictures that can easily be identified because of their uniqueness. We need to examine whether we're putting too much worry into a concern that does not deserve it.
A rare few early mistakes have been made as everyone gets introduced to the Digital Age. This has been a learning process for executives and printing company personnel as well as the general public, who are now learning the benefits of the Web. Eventually ignorance on appropriate handling of photos will diminish.
You won't find your photobuyers at publishing houses and magazines exhibiting such ignorance.

LURKING IN CYBERSPACE?

But the question is... "Is thievery rampant, or even existent, on the Web?"
Ever since photographers began realizing that it's possible for someone to "borrow" an image from the Web, I've heard warnings from my fellow camera columnists that thieves are lurking in cyberspace, waiting to steal your photos. Certain pros in our industry often perpetuate the myth at seminars and camera club meetings. They warn that photographers should beware, and that they should not expose images on the Web unless they are so tiny that someone could not profitably make use of them.

Veste importanta din Franta - de Dinu Lazar la: 22/05/2004 15:07:17
(la: O conversatie cu DINU LAZAR, fotograf)
Scrie un fotograf din Franta:

For those who intend to photography in France (you know the place where people have so exotic names, according to B. Yarvin) we have good news .
The cour de Cassation (our Supreme Court) has just stated a decision which largely is in favour of the photographers . I quote verbatim :
"le propriétaire d'un bien n'est pas le propriétaire exclusif de l'image de celui-ci" . Translation in my bad english : the owner of goods is not the exclusive owner of the image of these goods . The jurisprudence is so clear now that we can shoot buildings, houses and so on whithout fearing to loose in Court . There is one condition of course : not to be detrimental to the owner, by giving his adress for instance

Muresh
Smith climbs to the top of Mt. Sinai to get close enough to talk to God.
Looking up, he asks the Lord. . "God, what does a million years mean to you?"
The Lord replies, "A minute."
Smith asks, "And what does a million dollars mean to you?"
The Lord replies, "A penny."
Smith asks," Can I have a penny?"
The Lord replies, "In a minute".

(la: PUTEREA RUGACIUNII)
Dear sister,

Ai f. mare dreptate.Exista o fortza si o mare putere in rugaciuni catre Dumnezeu,mai ales atunci cand ele sunt sincere si pornite direct din suflet,pt. ca sufletul tau face o comuniune cu sufletul etern divin care de fapt exista in noi,nu suntem separati de Dumnezeu.El este chiar insasi in rasuflarea noastra si in tot ce ne inconjoara.

Eu personal am credinta mea anume,nu merg la nici o biserica,nu apartin vreunei religii anume si nici nu simt in mine sa fac asta,insa nu inseamna ca nu cred in Dumnezeu.A crede in EL nu-i necesar sa apartii unei anume religii,Dumnezeu e pt. toti si EL insusi nu are religie,am mai scris candva ca omul a creat religiile pt. a se deosebi de altii.

Eu ma simt cel mai bine in mijlocul naturii,IL simt pe Dumnezeu peste tot,in nori si largul cerului,in pomi,frunze,iarba,animale,pasari si chiar si in o simpla piatra.Nu ma pot ruga LUI decat fiind afara in natura,Il simt si deseori plang.
ASa sunt eu si legatura mea cu EL este poate alta decat ai tu sau altcineva cu EL,fiecare si-l apropie in felul sau,pt. ca eu consider ca relatia fiecaruia cu Dumnezeu este intima si nimeni nu trebuie neaparat sa stie cum IL vezi sau cum IL crezi tu in contrast cu altii.

Ceea ce este important e sa fii onest cu tine insuti si sincer cu cei din jur,in acest fel dai dovada ca-l iubesti pe Dumnezeu.
M-am rugat de f. multe ori dar crede-ma ca nu ma rog pt. mine deloc,mi se pare mereu ca nu e nevoie,pt. ca nu vreau sa cer nimic de la EL pt. mine dar cer pt. altii,sa fie sanatosi si bine ,sa traim in dragoste si pace doar,sa nu mai fim atat de egoisti.
De fapt Il gandesc pe Dumnezeu ca pe cel mai bun prieten ce pot avea,nu-l vad departe de mine si cu autoritate cum e descris in Biblie.
Noptile inainte de a ma culca ies afara in gradina,stau pe aleea de pietris in mijlocul pomilor si plantelor,ma uit la cerul nesfarsit(noroc ca locuim in natura si nu-s decat cateva case ici si colo,la distante mari,in rest e numai natura)si vorbesc cu Dumnezeu,cum as vorbi cu tine.Ii spun ce am pe suflet,e o discutie intre noi,si sa stii ca-L simt in mine.

Nu m-am rugat niciodata sa am o sotie buna si frumoasa,pereche potrivita,sau casa etc,mereu mi s-a parut rusinos sa cer ceva de la EL pt. mine personal,dar asa sunt eu.
Nu am cerut si nu m-am rugat dar cu toate astea Dumnezeu a avut grija de mine mereu si mi-a dat ceea ce as fi putut cere prin rugaciuni de la EL.

Tu stii ca am unele afinitati cu indienii americani,ca demult am fost acceptat in tribul navajo-hopi,acest trib este considerat de toate natiile de indieni inca de sute ani in urma drept pazitorul tzarii,al Americii,ei sunt sa zic asa custodele Americii.
Am vazut si eu diverse lucruri de necrezut pt. multi,indienii au mari cunostinte in leacuri pt. orice boli si cand vindeca pe cineva se roaga puternic la Marele Spirit.Idea a fost si este ca un Medicine Man niciodata nu vine la tine,tu te duci la el si niciodata nu iti va cere bani sau orice altceva pt. ca te-a lecuit,pt. ei este o rusine si ar fi nedemni de a mai fi shamani daca cer remunreatii.
Uneori accepta putin tutun,dar sa-l dai din suflet.
Multe din medicamentele de azi sunt bazate pe leacuri indiene,dar ei inca nu le-au spus pe toate pt. ca nu vor ca mari firme sa faca bani de pe urma lor.Ei cred ca a lecui trebuie sa fie fara nici o plata.Multe secrete vor ramane secretele lor doar.

Imi place de ei si ma simt bine in compania lor pt. ca avem aceiasi gandire cu totii,si dorim binele Mother Nature,de aceea cand ne rugam la Dumnezeu,in primul rand ne rugam pt. a pastra Creatia si a o apara.Restul nu are importanta,bani,case,serviciu,etc.Dumnezeu va avea grija de noi si fara a-i cere sa ne ajute.

Astea am avut de spus deocamdata.Important e sa crezi in Dumnezeu pt. ca intr-adevar exista!!!!Nu am nici o indoiala,sunt mai mult ca sigur si convins de existenta LUI.

I love you,
Love&peace,

Kitsch,Kitsc,Kits,Kit,Ki,K - de Little Eagle la: 24/06/2004 01:29:57
(la: Cum ati defini kitsch-ul?)
Dear brothers&sisters,

Lumea e plina de asa ceva,pe scurt inseamna prost gust,in Texas coarne de bouri la radiatorul Cadillacului,imbracaminte socanta in culori vibrante,cumva personal mie mi-au placut f. mult punkers,fete si tipi,nu era nimic kitsch in ei,ci doar rebeliune si cu asta sunt de acord.
Vorbesc de mode aiurite ce se vor sofisticate.
Alt ex.: John Travolta in ...Saturday night fever si de fapt toti acei ani de chin disco care ma adusesera in cel mai mare hal de disperare,si ca raspuns mereu puneam vol. la maxim cu Black Sabbath,Led Zeppelin,Deep Purple,Jethro Tull Pink Floyd,Genesis,Yes,Motorhead,Judas Priest,Iron Maiden.....to blast away the shit of disco and that crap from those stupid 80's years!.

In muzica deci a fost si e kitsch si azi,in artele plastice....pe vremea cand eram eu la Tonitza,prin 1973,noi studentii aveam alta denumire in lo de kitsch:arta de gang!Pt. ca de obicei arta asta era prin ganguri pe Lipscani ori in cartiere vreun magazin....vecin cu vreo ..cizmarie!

dar desigur ca astfel de arta comes with the teritory(in expresie),adica,la astfel de arte si gusturi neaparat vor exista si oameni pe masura si simbioza e creata.Pe aici pe la noi ii numim fie white trash,sau red necks,sau pur si simplu,morons!Adica oameni fara educatie ,si o anume market trebuie sa existe si pt. ei...

Culmea e ca acestia cred ca un Van Gogh sau Monet e o porcarie in comparatie cu ...superbul tablou ce-l au pe perete in casa ori in mobil home ce reprezinta un raulet in padure cu pietroaie si undeva pe o stanca e un lup ce urla la luna....
Chestia e ca in esenta nu conteaza subiectul ci CUM este realizat in compozitie si culori....Cezanne,ori Gauguin ar face o capodopera din acelasi subiect!
Si NU ar fi deloc kitsch!

Dar da imi aduc aminte cat am trait jumate din viata mea in Ro.acele picturici real nasoale si ca subiect si ca executie,clasicul cos cu piersici,prune,mere,pere etc,clasicul cu trandafiri si desigur,la piece de resistance: PEPENELE verde cu dungi si o felie taiata pusa"artistic" langa el,poate ca diversificare,un ciorchine de struguri intr-un colt,dar mai la intuneric,nu cumva sa ia rolul principal al actorului,felia de pepene.

Dar totusi parca si mai tare era portretul tzigancii cu trandafiri la ureche.

Asa ca eu definesc kitsch-ul drept expresia de prost gust creata anume pt. oameni de prost gust.

Prostul gust vine in multe forme si feluri,este greu sa schimbi gustul omului cand se naste si traieste din prost gust,eu cred ca e vorba si de ceva ereditar la mijloc.
Daca toti cei care existam in acest cerc(cafeneaua) ne analizam,vedem ca suntem o lume aparte,altfel nu am mai discuta unii cu altii,suntem iesiti din ramele tablourilor cu pepeni si tziganci.Intelectul isi gaseste un numitor comun,indiferent de :"certuri" pe subiecte(nu cred in ele,dar to be free spirited helps us a lot to find ourselves better and I beleieve we love one with another very much,we are brothers and sisters!)

dar simultan cu lumea noastra e o alta,mai simpla,a kitsch-ului.Alti oameni,alte idei si o lene in a gandi,dar trebuie sa-i ajutam ori voi ce credeti? Sa-i lasam sa zaca in ignoranta?Sa facem misto de gusturile lor?Ei fac misto de ale noastre,undeva nu exista o conexiune de mii de ani chiar.
Inca nu stiu un real raspuns,astept ajutor de la voi,de aceea suntem un cerc si ne spunem parerile,sa nu fim egoisti.

In final si cei cu gusturi kitsch,sunt fratii si surorile mele.As fi un ipocrit daca le-as critica gusturile.
Critic pe cei ce creaza kitsch-ul,pt ca nu sunt sinceri.E foarte usor sa te cobori la mintea unui copil si sa vada in tine pe egalul lui,mai greu e sa-l aduci la mintea ta si sa vada in tine intelepciune dar si copilarie in acelasi timp.

Love&peace,

Multe felicitari pentru succesul tau. Vezi, asa Romani mai zic si eu. Oameni care muncesc si nu se pling cum fac altii de pe-aici din cafenea. Singura noastra plingere e ca nu ne putem tine banii pentru care muncim. I'm going to look into filing taxes in another state. Nu am stiut pina acum de chestia asta. Este adevarat, California este statul de vis cit priveste vremea si stilul de viata, dar taxele te pune la pamint. Nu ne gindim sa ne mutam, perspectivele care le avem aici deocamdata sint foarte bune. If you file in FL, don't you have to be a resident of FL? By the way, if I'm not intruding, how long have you lived in the states?

Don't be concerned,I can take care of myself without your...help!
I'm a big blown baby and I'm gonna suck you inside my own self.
To release myself?Are you talking about sex?You're quite nasty but exciting when you say..."I'm ready to take it all in"...I don't know exactly ..what did you try to say...but it's fine with me!I'll come to CA and believe me we can fuck all night long,I think you didn't have to much sex in the last months...maybe....YEARS?Oh babe you'll gonna take it ALL IN.And finally you'll like it!Wait 'till I go down between your legs and give you the best head you ever had!

Iwent to the west a few times.I still have lots of friends there,some they'll move here in NJ because they ...hate CA and those ..shallow people like yourself,and mind you,they were born there and are americans,.not like you.
You're still a stranger here,you don't belong here darling.
Did you really have a one to one conversation with your self?Did you ask yourself if you belong here?
NO!You took everything for granted,like ...this land belongs to you...!Well,IT DOES NOT!!!

And you have the nerve to ask me that I am in the wrong way of thinking?
I will contact you only if you decide to have sex!!I mean if you want it!You'll never ever regret it!!!!I'll give you the moon and the stars,you'll have all the fireworks and beg for more
Would you like that?C'mon,I know you,after a week with me you'll become a

When was the last time you had a great pussy lick?I mean,to the perfection????And then a good sex to last and last?
Or you know only...the missionarry position?When was the last time when a man threw you against the wall and ripped off your panties and grabbed you in his arms and fuck you like there is no tomorrow,or hitting your ass against the wall and meanwhile sucking your undies in his mouth????

I think you'll be a different woman if you'll get more laid and have a great fuck!!!!You'll start to love me and Spiderman,you'll love everybody!I think I found the secret!!!!YOU DON"T HAVE ENOUGH DICK!!!Hey,you know what?I'll pretend to my wife that I am going to San Diego at a comicon(comic book convention),Iwent in the past many times and I do have lots of good friends in CA.Nobody has to know.
I'll meet you,we'll go right on the beach at sunset and we'll have sex together

Why not?

This is the way to release myself and for sure I'm ready for you ANY TIME BABY!

de cand se traduce "jew" prin "jidan"(termen insultator)?

N-am intentionat sa jignesc pe nimeni si nu stiam ca "jidan" e un termen insultator; daca e imi cer scuze. Cum s-ar traduce atunci? --- ca n-am un dictionar englez-roman la indemina.

Dupa cite stiu eu: hebrew = evreu
israeli = israelian
jew = ? (eu credeam jidan---corectati-ma)
jewish = de religie ?

2 a transf. and offensive. As a name of opprobrium: spec. applied to a
grasping or extortionate person (whether Jewish or not) who drives hard

practices that might be supposed to accompany it, and gained an opprobrious
sense.
