jokes after the middle of the week and before the weekend…;)

“We threw a lot of eggs at the politicians at the yesterday’s meeting…”

“But I’ve heard there were a lot of applause?”

“That was only when the eggs hit them…”

When they asked some teachers to name three reasons why they like their job, they all answered: “June, July and August…”

“Now what’s your excuse?” asked a teacher a schoolboy who was late for school again.

“I saw a lady who lost 100 $…”

“Oh, and you helped her to find them?”

“Not exactly… I stepped and stood on them until she left…”

What is trash for some people, maybe gold for others… from my future Incredible Future :). Have a nice rest of the week, everyone!

What’s the real reason for racism?

February 15, 2013

537294_363135497127282_2032584622_n

As strange as it may sound, there was no such thing as racism in antiquity. This dreadful attitude of some human races appeared later, when the so called superior white men decided they had the right to enslave the different (inferior according to their opinion) people with different colour of the skin.. To justify their deeds, as the years went by, they concocted many reasons for their right thoughts. If you need some more info, try Wikipedia, for example, as this post/note is about my thoughts and not so much about historical facts:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Racism#Evolutionary_theories_about_the_origins_of_racism

Many of the racists would claim they have nothing against the black, dark, red, yellow, etc colour of the other races’ skin. They would also cross their hearts after that, when they would explain it’s the way of life many of the representatives of these inferior races lead that makes them wish to close every gypsy, black man and woman or red-skinned Indian, etc in gas cameras. These “noble” racists would add some true facts, of course: most of the gypsies (especially in some poor, ex-communist countries) bathe once a month or even more rarely, beg out in the streets and would steal anything more valuable they could snatch; the gypsy families give birth to many children, so that they could take the family allowance the country give to help mothers with young and infant children, the gypsy parents prefer to send their kids to beg in the streets than to go to school and later become a qualified specialists, as that way their heirs and heiresses could bring some money home, etc. The so called “noble” racists would point out too that many black men in the developed countries are part of disgusting gangs that deal with drugs, killings, thefts, etc, and the other races with different skin colour worship other moral and philosophical values and gods and religion, too different from the righteous Christianity. The fans of the racist theory would not forget to say there are many evidences about the stupidity of the inferior races, which “live on the back” of the normal societies of white men. The racists would point out too evidences of the low IQ of some of the races with different skin colour, and would even shout there are already different, more effective medicines for black men, as the ordinary ones the white race use could even harm them…

After all these speculations, I would like to ask racists what is the first thought that springs up in their mind when they see black, yellow or red-skinned, etc men and women. It is not what awful thieves, beggars, gangsters, killers, etc some of them are, it’s usually how “awful, disgusting, even frightful” the other races’ people’s faces, appearances and features are… Meanwhile, no one of the righteous fighters for a perfect world would remember that a lot of white men steal much more than any gypsy, black-skinned thief or gangster, etc (just bear in mind that the biggest thieves are amongst corrupted politicians and big corporations’ managers’ crew). Yet, most of the racists wouldn’t want to send any white-skinned thief or murderer to a gas camera or wouldn’t like to make soap of them (as they would with gypsies, black men, etc). To show I don’t speak/write in vain, I’ll point out what happened with a gypsy boss of Bulgarian alcohol mafia a couple of years ago. Being too cocky and feeling too invincible, he killed an innocent youngster with his car (which was awful, of course)… Right after that, his few villas were surrounded by many representatives of nationalistic Bulgarian organizations, they set them on fire and destroyed hs properties, then claimed to kill all the gypsies everywhere in the world, but didn’t say a word about other as much awful Bulgarians who did such awful deeds too… I guess that’s just another prove that the “dreadful” appearance of other races is the main reason for racism… I guess too anyone could point out many other proves about that…

As for the facts that black men are more stupid than any of the white race, my personal experience shows the opposite. I haven’t met black men or gypsies, etc yet who would wonder why people don’t use walkmans anymore but buy MP3 players, or cannot use computers and Internet for anything else than to play some of the simplest games… While there are some white men I know who are so narrow-minded and “insane” to do some of these stupid things…

Well, I don’t want to claim all the gypsies and black men, etc are perfect, many of them are awful, indeed. But would like to remind about the great difference between gypsies in ex-communist countries and so called developed ones for example… There, the gypsy families have jobs, don’t beg in the streets and behave as “normal” white men’s families… So, if they could be such good guys, then their compatriots that steal and beg in the streets could become “normal” too, they just need some help, much more different than sending them to gas cameras or making soap of them?

BTW, I hope this post/note of mine will show to all the people that I’m not a racist, as some thought after reading my first Tale Of The Rock Pieces, because of my characters with brown skin, which I depicted as the most horrible, disgusting, greedy, despicable, etc human race that ever existed on Earth (though I showed clearly it had nothing in common with any black race of today…).

BTW, have a nice St valentine’s Day, everyone! 🙂

some good jokes for the beginning of the week ;)…

January 29, 2013

I know some people don’t like political jokes, but this one is really good and I couldn’t refrain from posting…

via Charles William Rogers:

One day a florist went to a barber for a haircut. After the cut, he asked about his bill, and the barber replied, ‘I cannot accept money from you; I’m doing community service this week.’ The florist was pleased and left the shop. When the barber went to open his shop the next morning, there was a ‘thank you’ card and a dozen roses waiting for him at his door.

Later, a cop comes in for a haircut, and when he tries to pay his bill, the barber again replied, ‘I cannot accept money from you; I’m doing community service this week.’ The cop was happy and left the shop. The next morning when the barber went to open up, there was a ‘thank you’ card and a dozen donuts waiting for him at his door.

Then a Congressman came in for a haircut, and when he went to pay his bill, the barber again replied, ‘I cannot accept money from you. I’m doing community service this week.’ The congressman was very happy and left the shop.

The next morning, when the barber went to open up, there were a dozen Congressmen lined up waiting for a free haircut.

And that, my friends, illustrates the fundamental difference between the citizens of our country and the politicians who run it. 😉

 “It seems you don’t wear bra today, Miss?” said a schoolboy to his teacher.
“How you found out? I still wear my coat?” answered the teacher.
“Well, it’s easy, there are no wrinkles on your face…”
From a conversation of two blonde women: “The princes of today are so awful that it seems it’s better to marry the white horse instead…”
And the usual excerpt from a book of mine: One of the interesting qualities of human mind is that when we have to remember some important scientific facts, the probability to remember a funny joke instead rises in a a geometrical progression… my future Kids’ Funny Business.

My sinecere condoleneces to all the victims’ families and relatives in the school in New Town, Connecticut…

December 18, 2012

282187_10151282959094712_184060194_n This post should be about my jokes for the weekend or the beginning of the new week, yet the dreadful murder of twenty innocent kids and six of their teachers in New Town, Connecticut, USA was so brutal, cruel and meaningless that jokes would not be appropriate at all…

My sincere condolences to all the victims’ families and relatives must be the only written words here, as well as some good suggestions and thoughts I found in Internet. I’m not an America citizen and an expert in USA’s Constitution and all the good and bad sides of America’s laws, but it’s obvious after such a horror (and it’s not the only one) there must be some changes made in some of them (I was in shock with the words of an American weapon expert who said on the news that in Virginia one has to be twenty one year old to drink and buy alcohol in restaurants and shops but when one wants to buy a weapon, no one would ask for an ID card!)…

And I won’t discuss the issue that Americans should be so concerned about the dead kids in other countries like Iraq, Afghanistan, Serbia, etc because of USA’s bombing as they are about the poor little souls who lost their lives in the school in New Town, as the goal of this post is not about that:

TURN OFF THE NEWS…….

Morgan Freeman’s brilliant take on what happened yesterday :

“You want to know why. This may sound cynical, but here’s why.
It’s because of the way the media reports it. Flip on the news and watch how we treat the Batman theater shooter and the Oregon mall shooter like celebrities. Dylan Klebold and Eric Harris are household names, but do you know the name of a single *victim* of Columbine? Disturbed
people who would otherwise just off themselves in their basements see the news and want to top it by doing something worse, and going out in a memorable way. Why a grade school? Why children? Because he’ll be remembered as a horrible monster, instead of a sad nobody.

CNN’s article says that if the body count “holds up”, this will rank as the second deadliest shooting behind Virginia Tech, as if statistics somehow make one shooting worse than another. Then they post a video interview of third-graders for all the details of what they saw and heard while the shootings were happening. Fox News has plastered the killer’s face on all their reports for hours. Any articles or news stories yet that focus on the victims and ignore the killer’s identity? None that I’ve seen yet. Because they don’t sell. So congratulations, sensationalist media, you’ve just lit the fire for someone to top this and knock off a day care center or a maternity ward next.

You can help by forgetting you ever read this man’s name, and remembering the name of at least one victim. You can help by donating to mental health research instead of pointing to gun control as the problem. You can help by turning off the news.”

A state-of-the-art assault weapon in 1791

Yes, we have this debate every time some sick bastard buys some guns and shoots innocent people, and I have no doubt that this episode of the the debate will end the same way it always does:

With each side endlessly repeating their usual bullet points and then getting bored and moving on.

And then in another week or month or year, some other sick bastard will buy himself a cache of weapons and slaughter more innocent people, and then we’ll have the debate again.

And so on…

And that’s understandable, if frustrating–especially for those whose family members and friends are the ones who are killed.

For better and worse, we do have a constitutional “right to bear arms” in this country, and it should take a broad consensus to amend the Constitution. And, yes, it probably does make sense for us to have at least some right to bear some arms, even if having the right to buy quasi-machine guns like the one used in the Colorado massacre seems ludicrous. And there’s a vast difference between bearing some arms in, say, Wyoming, and bearing them in New York City, where the population density is a tad higher, and so forth. So, of course, this is going to be a contentious and impassioned debate.

But can we at least agree on one thing?

Can we at least agree that, since 1791, when the Second Amendment was ratified, the country’s circumstances have changed?

In 1791, for example:

  • There were only 3.9 million Americans
  • The “arms” we gave ourselves the right to bear were vastly less powerful–namely they were single-shot muskets that had to be manually loaded with powder and ball for each shot, versus today’s semi-automatic assault weapons that spray 50-60 high-caliber bullets per minute
  • It was legal to own slaves in some parts of the country (Constitutionally permissible behavior that, fortunately, changed)
  • “America” didn’t extend west of the Mississippi River (and, really, it was only the 13 colonies)
  • Indians still attacked occasionally
  • We hunted a lot of our food
  • “States” really were separate countries in those days–it took months to travel from one end of the country to the other
  • The “frontier” (and many other parts of the country) was essentially lawless: Citizens had to protect themselves, because no one else was around to do it (Now, most states have well-armed police forces, etc.)
  • And so on…

Basically, can we at least agree that giving ourselves the unfettered right to buy, sell, and own whatever kinds of weapons we want might have made more sense in 1791 than it does today–and, therefore, that it’s a bit unfair to couch this debate in terms of “defending the Constitution” and/or trying to figure out what the Framers meant by “a well-regulated militia”?

Getty

The Framers meant THESE arms when they wrote the Second Amendment? Really??

I mean, do folks really think that if the “Framers” had seen what happened in that Colorado movie theater last week, they still would have written the Second Amendment the way they did–with no qualifications?

Yes, this point is academic, because the Second Amendment is what it is.

But can we all at least agree that it’s a bit, if nothing else, outdated?

Or are we all totally cool with any old sick bastard being able to buy as many quasi-machine guns as he or she wants?

Winner(!!!!!) of MOST IMPORTANT POST OF THE YEAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Art Schultz:

Finally, I will say this about the mass murders in Connecticut.

All too often, People hide inactivity behind prayer, hoping things will get better without taking any action themselves, By all means Pray if you feel the need
To do so. just remember that it does not end there. You have not done your
Part which is to become ACTIVE. Do not become angry because God did not

Do something amazing to compensate for mans passivity and laziness.

The mental health and the future of this Nation and all nations rests upon
Our caring enough for our Children, working and middle class, our Military , Women , Seniors, LGBT, and all people who are DIFFERENT than us.

The fact that you may not live forever or feel that the well being of strangers
Has nothing to do with you is WRONG. You, a Family Member or someone
You know can just as easily become the next victim in a major incident.

It is time that I , we and YOU let your elected officials know that we care
About people who need psychiatric help, help with having health care, a
Roof over their heads, and food on their tables.

it is time that I, We and YOU demand GUN CONTROL. taking guns totally
Away from people is NOT what I am suggesting. I am saying we need better
Controls on WHO can have an Gun, how many and why. it is time that
People with mental and emotional issues not be allowed to just slip through
The crack and be able to weapons as easily as one buys a candy bar.

This will not be the last such massacre.They will continue to happen until
WE decide that it must stop. The news can help by not continually talking
About the perps who bare sick, sick individuals who in part do these things
Because they know they will have a place in history albeit a sick one.
Already, somewhere there is some sick person already thinking about how
They can break the record and show up the last one.

Finally, by all means PRAY, but please take ACTION too and call your
Elected officials, Visit your Childs school and know who their friends are
And let someone know when you see REAL antisocial tendencies in children.
They might get the help they need if WE demand it. No age is too young.

What you DO from this day forward is what will prevent others copycat
Incidents. All of the Prayer, Candles , flowers, vigils and Teddy Bears left
On the side of buildings and parks are useless compared to actually DOING
Something.

PEACE

a short video about Israel and Palestine….

December 15, 2012

Truth can hurt more than any physical injury and it’s usually in the middle… These statements are true for any moments in our history, as the statement the first reason for a war are the greediness, strive for new territories and natural resources, then the second is the unnecessary revenge (as some of my characters say in a future book of mine).

I cannot claim I’m an amazing expert in history or politics, but couldn’t refrain from posting this short and true video (I hope my good Jew friends won’t be offended, they love their land very much). But I guess all the angry people who cannot bare the sight of Jews and want to send them all into oblivion have to watch it very carefully… I really hope the future for both nations will be perfect…
