(la: Cum sa devii un liberal de nota 10!)
Sint curioasa de ce ai ales acelasi mutual fund in class A shares si class B shares? Usually I like to stick to only one class, class A has the front load expenses, and even though Class B shares has the back load expenses they are usually expense free only after a number of years which can be a disadvantage in some cases. I prefer the class C Shares, since they are cheaper than Class A and constrained only by a one year window. Se pare ca folosesti un Brokerage account unde poti sa-ti introduci si stocks. Ai avut foarte mare noroc cu cele doua stock-uri, sper ca esti pe cale de a le inlocui. Vad ca esti in ton cu actualitatile marketului si al economiei, you know what is the home ownership percetage in America? As of end of last year it was 68.6%, and it is still growing. Daca ne-am lua dupa speech-urile lui Kerry ai crede ca sintem in the Great Depression era. Ha! Ce stiu liberalii!? Cit despre taxe, aici in California ne maninca cu taxele.

Dear brother Destin, Mereu - de Little Eagle la: 02/08/2004 00:51:26
Dear brother Destin,

Mereu am gandit ca exista o apropiere in spirit si suflet intre daci si indieni.
Sufletul nu moare,ei stiu asta,dacii stiau asta,Zamolxes sau Wakan Tanka este mereu acelasi unic God!De milenii.
Mi se pare mai profunda credinta lor de atunci,cei vechi,simpla si curata si mai presus,sincera!Uneori multe triburi lakota sau shoshonees ori commanches youkon,iroquois,au numit pe Dumnezeu,marele spirit,drept Bunicutul lor drag.

Asta ii apropia de El dar cu mare respect.Si atunci oare de ce ti-ar fi teama de moarte?Moartea e un vis ca si viata.Ca si dacilor,indienilor niciodata nu le-a fost teama de moarte.
Personal am invatat multe de la ei pt. ca am destui frati indieni din diverse triburi si de la mic la mare inca pastreaza si transmit credinta lor care e sincera si vine din sufletul lor.

Nu este nici o poveste in astea ce scrii,este un adevar.
Imi este chiar greu sa traduc ceea ce voi scrie acum la incheiere,as dori sa ma lase Admin sa scriu in engleza:

"Do not grieve.Misfortunes will happen to the wisest and best of men.
Death will come,always out of season.It is the command of the Great Spirit,
and all nations and people must obey.
What is past and what cannot be prevented should not be grieved for....Misfortunes do not flourish particularly in our lives-they grow everywhere."

What makes a man a man(Marc Almond) - de Pasagerul la: 19/03/2006 22:40:25
(la: Minoritati)
My mum and I we live alone
A great apartment is our home
In fairhome towers
I have to keep me company
Two dogs, a cat, a parakeet
Some plants and flowers
I help my mother with the chores
I wash, she dries, I do the floors
We work together
I shop and cook and sew a bit
Though mum does too I must admit
I do it better
At night I work in a strange bar
Impersonating every star
I'm quite deceiving
The customers come in with doubt
And wonder what I'm all about
But leave believing
I do a very special show
Where I am nude from head to toe
After stripteasing
Each night the men look so surprised
I change my sex before their eyes
Tell me if you can
What makes a man a man

At 3 o'clock or so I meet
With friends to have a bite to eat
And conversation
We love to empty out our hearts
With every subject from the arts
To liberation
We love to pull apart someone
And spread some gossip just for fun
Or start a rumour
We let our hair down, so to speak
And mock ourselves with tongue-in-cheek
And inside humour
So many times we have to pay
For having fun and being gay
It's not amusing
There's always those that spoil our games
By finding fault and calling names
Always accusing
They draw attention to themselves
At the expense of someone else
It's so confusing
Yet they make fun of how I talk
And imitate the way I walk
Tell me if you can
What makes a man a man

My masquerade comes to an end
And I go home to bed again
Alone and friendless
I close my eyes, I think of him
I fantasise what might have been
My dreams are endless
We love each other but it seems
The love is only in my dreams
It's so one sided
But in this life I must confess
The search for love and hapiness
Is unrequited
I ask myself what I have got
Of what I am and what I'm not
What have I given
The answers come from those who make
The rules that some of us must break
Just to keep living
I know my life is not a crime
I'm just a victim of my time
I stand defenceless
Nobody has the right to be
The judge of what is right for me
Tell me if you can
What make a man a man

Tell me if you can
Tell me if you can
Tell me if you can
What makes a man a man

(la: Trancaneala Aristocrata "9") aristocratia e pe cale de disparitie.... :)))))))

A little boy goes to his dad and asks, "What is politics?"

Dad says, "Well son, let me try to explain it this way: I'm the breadwinner of the family, so let's call me capitalism. Your Mom, she's the administrator of the money, so we'll call her the Government. We're here to take care of your needs, so we'll call you the people. The nanny, we'll consider her the Working Class. And your baby brother, we'll call him the Future. Now, think about that and see if that makes sense,"

So the little boy goes off to bed thinking about what dad had said. Later that night, he hears his baby brother crying, so he gets up to check on him. He finds that the baby has severely soiled his diaper. So the little boy goes to his parents' room and finds his mother sound asleep. Not wanting to wake her, he goes to the nanny's room. Finding the door locked, he peeks in the keyhole and sees his father in bed with the nanny. He gives up and goes back to bed. The next morning, the little boy says to his father, "Dad, I think I Understand the concept of politics now." The father says, "Good son, tell me in your own words what you think politics is all about." The little boy replies, "Well, while Capitalism is screwing the Working Class, the Government is sound asleep, the People are being ignored and the Future is in deep shit."

If you don't like something, change it. If you can't change it, change your attitude. Don't complain.

DEHA este pe scurt un hormon - de Nico la: 10/10/2003 19:13:41
(la: D.H.E.A. sau tineretea vesnica ???)
DEHA este pe scurt un hormon produs de corpul uman: dehydroepiandrosteron. Este responsabil pentru producerea si reglarea steroizilor si hormonilor sexuali. S-a observat ca nivelul acestui hormon scade dramatic cu varsta ( la 70 ani este 5% comparativ cu nivelul de la 20 ani). Acest fapt a dus la deductia logica - dar necomfirmata din pacate - ca suplimentand acest hormon imbatranirea poate fi reversata sau macar incetinita. Nu este total exlusa posibilitatea metionata de tine ... teoretic vorbind!

Pentru vorbitorii de limba engleza ( De pe Internet adunate!)):
"DHEA" is short for dehydroepiandrosterone, a hormone naturally produced in the human body in the adrenal gland.
For what is DHEA used?
DHEA / Dehydroepiandrosterone is the sole precursor hormone responsible for the production and regulation of every other steroid and sex hormone in the body. It has recently been discovered that bodily levels of DHEA decline with age (a typical 70-year old will have about 5-10% the DHEA of what a typical 20 year old produces), leading to the (logically correct and possible) hypothesis that supplementing DHEA will reverse or halt the aging process. This is probably just another round of humankind's hope for the discovery of the Fountain of Youth, but there are some valuable elements to DHEA supplementation that are worth investigating. For example, declining levels of DHEA are implicated in
Alzheimer's disease
atherosclerosis and heart disease
Canalul Dunarea Marea Neagra - de ilana gillon la: 22/10/2003 09:14:24
(la: A existat holocaust in Romania?)
Sint in Israel de 40 ani si nu mai vorbesc/scriu bine Romaneste. Asi vrea sa continui in Englezeste.

I reached this site completely by chance and was amazed to see that the situation of the Jews in Romania during the communist era and before is still of such a huge interest.
My father Ing. Aurel Rozei was one of the engineers that were employed in the first Canalul Dunarea Marea Neagra project. He was sentenced to death in 1952 for sabotageing the works. Is this trial known now in Romania ? What is the attitude towards it. Any information will be highly appreciated.
Bene sh-atata ...oricum ...mult! - de Alice la: 01/12/2003 13:46:48
(la: Cohen)
D-aia uite:

"What is a saint? A saint is someone who has achieved a remote human possibility. It is impossible to say what that possibility is. I think it has something to do with the energy of love. Contact with this energy results in the exercise of a kind of balance in the chaos of existence. A saint does not dissolve the chaos; if he did the world would have changed long ago. I do not think that a saint dissolves the chaos even for himself, for there is something arrogant and warlike in the notion of a man setting the universe in order. It is a kind of balance that is his glory. He rides the drifts like an escaped ski. His course is the caress of the hill. His track is a drawing of the snow in a moment of its particular arrangement with wind and rock. Something in him so loves the world that he gives himself to the laws of gravity and chance. Far from flying with the angels, he traces with the fidelity of a seismograph needle the state of the solid bloody landscape. His house is dangerous and finite, but he is at home in the world. He can love the shape of human beings, the fine and twisted shapes of the heart. It is good to have among us such men, such balancing monsters of love."
- L. Cohen, Beautiful Losers

Hello Shu - de Florin si atat la: 19/02/2004 14:15:38
(la: De ce vreau sa emigrez)
Am citit ceva din mesajul tau dar bineinteles nu tot. Este prea obositor si nu-mi spune nimic.

Daca as traduce textul tau in engleza si l-as citi unui psiholog de aici sint sigur ca te-ar gasi bolnav mintal. Asa ca te scutesc eu niste bani sa platesti un doctor.

Romania nu este o fiinta; nu e urita sau lenesa.

Iti propun un experiment:
Uita pentru citeva momente de Romania, istoria si cultura bogata. Uitate in jurul tau la ce ai material, la cei dragi si intreba-te din adincul inimii ce te face nefericit si ce iti lipseste. Fa o lista pe hirtie si de miine pune-ti mintea si puterea sa-ti indeplinesti dorintele.

Nu te mai jelii.
What is your point? Ce vrei sa spui?

Iti spun doar atit:
Get a life!

Numai bine!
Florin si atat.

"What is this that stands before me?
Figure in black which points at me,
Turn around quick,and start to run,
Find out I'm the chosen one.
Oh Nooooooo!

Big black shape with eyes of fire,
Telling people their desire,
Satan's sitting there,he's smiling,
Watches those flames get higher and higher,
Oh no,no,no,please God help me!

Is it the end my friend?
Satan's coming 'round the bend,
People runing 'cause they're scared
The people better go and beware!
No,no,please nooooo!

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 ?

In medieval England, Jews, though engaged in many pursuits, were particularly
familiar as money-lenders, their activities being publicly regulated for them
by the Crown, whose proteges they were. In private, Christians also practised
money-lending, though forbidden to do so by Canon Law. Thus the name of Jew
came to be associated in the popular mind with usury and any extortionate
practices that might be supposed to accompany it, and gained an opprobrious

(la: despre barbati ... fara suparare :))
eu n-am decat o singura parere: barbatii sunt buni doar sa deschida borcane, sa omoare ganganii si sa tunda iarba ;)

uite si celelalte doua bancuri de care-ti spuneam ... si promit de-acum inainte sa mai caut si bancuri in romana (nu e vina mea ca si cei din RO tot in engleza imi trimit da' o sa-ncerc sa ma conformez)

There were two golfers on the golf course.
One of the men pulled out a cigarette, and asked his friend for a light.
His friend pulls out a 12 inch Bic lighter.
“Wow, where did you get such a large Bic?” “Oh, my genie got it for me.”
“Your genie? You have a genie? Where is he?”
“He is in my golf bag.”
The friend says, “Can I see him?” His friend says “yes, sure!” So the friend looks in the bag and out comes the genie.
The man says to the genie: “I am your master’s best friend. Would you grant me just one wish?” The genie says “yes, just one wish”. So the man wishes for a million bucks.
The genie goes back in the golf bag without saying a word. Pretty soon, the sky starts to get dark. Then it gets even darker. The man looks up and sees a million ducks flying over.
He gets really upset, and says “what is the matter with your genie? Is he hard of hearing? I said a million Bucks, not a million Ducks.”
His friend says to him: “Do you really think I asked for a 12 inch Bic?”

An elderly lady phoned her telephone company to report that her telephone failed to ring when her friends called and that on the few occasions when it did ring, her pet dog always moaned right before the phone rang.

The telephone repairman proceeded to the scene, curious to see this psychic dog or senile elderly lady. He climbed a nearby telephone pole, hooked in his test set, and dialed the subscriber's house. The phone didn't ring right away, but then the dog moaned loudly and the telephone began to ring.

Climbing down from the pole, the telephone repairman found:

1. The dog was tied to the telephone 's ground wire via a steel chain and collar.
2. The wire connection to the ground rod was loose.
3. The dog was receiving 90 volts of signaling current when the phone number was called.
4. After a couple of such jolts, the dog would start moaning and then urinate on himself and the ground.
5. The wet ground would complete the circuit, thus causing the phone to ring.

Which goes to show that some problems can be fixed by pissing and moaning.

Words Women Use...

This is the word women use to end an argument when they feel they are right and you need to shut up. Never use "fine" to describe how a woman looks - this will cause you to have one of those arguments.
This is half an hour. It is equivalent to the five minutes that your football game is going to last before you take out the trash, so it's an even trade.
This means "something", and you should be on your toes. "Nothing" is usually used to describe the feeling a woman has of wanting to turn you inside out, upside down, and backwards. 'Nothing" usually signifies an argument that will last "Five Minutes" and end with 'Fine'
GO AHEAD (With Raised Eyebrows)
This is a dare. One that will result in a woman getting upset over Nothing" and will end with the word "Fine"
GO AHEAD (Normal Eyebrows)
This means "I give up" or "do what you want because I don't care" You will get a "Raised Eyebrow Go Ahead" in just a few minutes, followed by Nothing" and "Fine" and she will talk to you in about "Five Minutes" when she cools off.
This is not actually a word, but is a non-verbal statement often misunderstood by men. A "Loud Sigh" means she thinks you are an idiot at that moment, and wonders why she is wasting her time standing here and arguing with you over "Nothing"
Again, not a word, but a non-verbal statement. "Soft Sighs" mean that she is content. Your best bet is to not move or breathe, and she will stay content.
This is one of the most dangerous statements that a woman can make to a man. "That's Okay" means that she wants to think long and hard before paying you back for whatever it is that you have done. "That's Okay" is often used with the word "Fine" and in conjunction with a "Raised Eyebrow.
At some point in the near future, you are going to be in some mighty big trouble.
This is not a statement, it is an offer. A woman is giving you the chance to come up with whatever excuse or reason you have for doing whatever it is that you have done.You have a fair chance with the truth, so be careful and you shouldn't get a "That's Okay"
A woman is thanking you. Do not faint. Just say you're welcome.
This is much different from "Thanks." A woman will say, "Thanks A Lot" when she is really ticked off at you. It signifies that you have offended her in some callous way, and will be followed by the "Loud Sigh." Be careful not to ask what is wrong after the "Loud Sigh," as she will only tell you "Nothing"

Fapte Reale pt. Omulet - de LMC la: 04/08/2004 18:39:49
(la: Despre Alegerile din S.U.A.: De ce trebuie sa votam pt. GWB.)
Prin simplu fapt ca ai zis:

"Nu m-am mai deranjat nici macar sa deschid linkurile pe care le-ai publicat. Stiu ce contin, si propaganda fascista nu ma atrage."

asta da dovada de um om cu o minte deschisa????

Imi pare rau Domnule Goma, dar interpretarea dumitale este cea care-i obtusa. Daca te-ai fi deranjat numai pentru unul dintre linkurile care le-am listat ai fi vazut ca ceea ce era scris nu era numai de la sursa care publica. Din contra fiecare dintre linkuri arata un "headline" reportat in diferite locuri. De asemenea, ti-ai fi deschis un pic mai mult mintea si te-ai fi educat sa vezi cine-ti sint "prieteni". Vorba aia "Doamne fereste-ma de prieteni ca de inamici ma stiu eu pazi."

Din cite am citit la tine,te uiti la mine ca la un red neck, si eu ma uit la tine ca la un om care are ochii blindati. Ti-ai format o ideie anume despre conservativi, dar nici nu esti interesat sa-i cunosti. Imi pare rau dar pierzi mult mai mult decit tu crezi ca cistigi de la liberali.

Imi spui sa ma duc sa-mi citesc Biblia, si vreau sa-ti spun ca am citit-o mai mult decit ai fi citit-o sau o vei citi tu vre-odata. News Flash: vechiul si noul testament nu se contrazic deloc, ci se completeaza. Si ca sa-ti spun ce parere are Biblia despre prietenii tai homosexuali am sa-ti dau sa citesti citeva pasaje, si din Vechi si din Nou.

Leviticus 18:22
Do not lie with a man as one lies with a woman; that is detestable.

Leviticus 20:13
If a man lies with a man as one lies with a woman, both of them have done what is detestable. They must be put to death; their blood will be on their own heads.

Romans 1. 18The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of men who suppress the truth by their wickedness, 19since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. 20For since the creation of the world God's invisible qualities--his eternal power and divine nature--have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse.
21For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools 23and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like mortal man and birds and animals and reptiles.
24Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. 25They exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator--who is forever praised. Amen.
26Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural ones. 27In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed indecent acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their perversion.
28Furthermore, since they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, he gave them over to a depraved mind, to do what ought not to be done. 29They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit and malice. They are gossips, 30slanderers, God-haters, insolent, arrogant and boastful; they invent ways of doing evil; they disobey their parents; 31they are senseless, faithless, heartless, ruthless. 32Although they know God's righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them.

Revelation 21:8 But the cowardly, the unbelieving, the vile, the murderers, the sexually immoral, those who practice magic arts, the idolaters and all liars--their place will be in the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death.

Ai dorinta sa-mi inchizi gura, asta nu vei reusi niciodata. Atita timp cit am vlaga in mine, atita timp cit singele-mi pulseaza in vene, voi spune raului rau si binelui bine. Sa fiu sincera cu tine nu ma intereseaza ce faci sau ce face altul atita timp cit nu-mi baga nimeni pe git ideile murdare, sau guvernul tarii in care traiesc nu se asociaza cu ideile aceastea. Si eu cred ca am dreptul acesta. Nu te ingrijora, nu voi vota pentru infiintarea lagarelor de concentrare, dar vad ca lagarele de concentrare pentru care votezi tu sint aproape de infiintare. Cred ca vei fi primul care ma vei lua de la spate si ma vei impinge in cuptor impreuna cu toti ceilalti conservativi, crestini sau altii care nu-s de acord cu tine. Si inca mai ai tupeul sa-mi spui ca cica eu sint plina de ura. Ma intreb oare ce parere au parintii tai, sau bunicii tai despre tine si ideile tale.

Nu are rost sa mai continui, am sa te pun primul pe lista celor ignorati, asa ca nu-ti pierde timpul sa-mi mai scrii.

Pentru Hypatia (Mea culpa) - de AR la: 25/10/2004 13:53:33
(la: Obligativitatea religiei in scoli - o masura nelegala?)

Imi insusesc urmatoarele definitii (din Dictionarul Explicativ) ale termenilor in discutie:

IMORAL (adj.) = care este in contradictie cu principiile moralei
MORAL (adj.) = care corespunde moralei; in conformitate cu morala
MORALA (s.f.) = forma a constiintei sociale care reflecta si fixeaza idei, conceptii, convingeri privind comportarea individului în societate.

Ca sa nu-mi reprosati unicitatea sursei de informare (periculoasa, dupa Sf. Ieronim: "TIMEO HOMINEM VNVS LIBRI"), va sugerez si cateva definitii cosmopolite:

IMMORAL (adj.) = Qui viole les règles de la morale
MORAL (adj.) = Qui concerne les moeurs, les règles de conduite en usage dans une société.
MORALE (n.f.) = Ensemble des principes de jugement et de conduite qui s'imposent à la conscience individuelle ou collective comme fondés sur les impératifs du bien; cet ensemble érigé en doctrine.

IMMORAL (adj.) = Contrary to established moral principles
MORAL (adj.) = 1. Of or concerned with the judgment of the goodness or badness of human action and character. 2. Teaching or exhibiting goodness or correctness of character and behavior. 3. Conforming to standards of what is right or just in behavior; virtuous. 4. Arising from conscience or the sense of right and wrong. 5. Having psychological rather than physical or tangible effects. 6. Based on strong likelihood or firm conviction, rather than on the actual evidence.
MORAL (n.) = 1. The lesson or principle contained in or taught by a fable, a story, or an event. 2. A concisely expressed precept or general truth; a maxim.
MORALE (n.) = The state of the spirits of a person or group as exhibited by confidence, cheerfulness, discipline, and willingness to perform assigned tasks.
MORALS (n. pl.) = Rules or habits of conduct, especially of sexual conduct, with reference to standards of right and wrong.

Din cele de mai sus se vede ca MORALA este o constructie a mintii umane, un ansamblu reguli de comportament specifice unei anumite comunitati umane. Unele comunitati (mai exact, conducatorii politico-religiosi ai acestora), din dorinta de a legitima un anumit set de reguli, i-au inventat origini supranaturale (exemplu: Decalogul inscris in Tablele Legii).

Exista, prin urmare, o morala crestin-ortodoxa (aplicabila exclusiv celor care apartin de facto comunitatii crestin-ortodoxe, definita ca multimea persoanelor credincioase care respecta normele Bisericii), dar si alte morale, specifice altor comunitati (nu neaparat religioase). De exemplu, sinuciderea este considerata imorala de catre morala crestina (dar si de catre cea islamica, de exemplu), dar normele morale hinduse si shintoiste o accepta...
De aceea, cred ca trebuie declarat intotdeauna CADRUL MORAL in care se face o apreciere morala (la Fizica, asta se cheama precizarea sistemului de referinta). Nu este, adica, riguros stiintific sa se faca aprecieri morale fara aceasta precizare.

Statele moderne (laice, in cea mai mare parte), in dorinta stabilirii unui set universal de principii independent de conditionarile nationale si religioase, au adoptat in 1948 Declaratia Universala a Drepturilor Omului, ca ansamblu de norme de comportament individual si colectiv.
La ACEST set de principii m-am referit cand am afirmat (in comentariul cu pricina) ca obligativitatea studierii religiei in scoli, ca disciplina obligatorie, in trunchiul comun, este imorala: se incalca Articolul 18 al numitei Declaratii.

In sfarsit, va cer scuze pentru lipsa de rigurozitate.
Va multumesc pentru ca mi-ati atras atentia.
Cu stima,

P.S. Personal, nu cred ca, in anul 2004, cineva mai poate crede SINCER ca textul biblic este de sorginte divina si ca are si alta valoare in afara celei literare (remarcabila, de altfel, desi extrem de inegala)...
