    Macedonia Name Dispute

    There is an article in iefimerida about Macedonia. You can read beneath the machine translation of the article in question. Reactions arise from the views of a member of the committee on the change of school books in Greece and Skopje, which argues that the Greekity of Macedonia is a fantasy. Alexandra Ioannidou is one of the seven members of the committee appointed by the Greek government to examine irresponsibility in Skopje's school books. With recent statements she had questioned the Greekity of Macedonia. The Associate Professor of the National Center for the Study of Democracy said on 19/9/2018: "We take up a thousand myrrh in the name of the terrible homeland and one, let's say, fantasy telling us that Macedonia was always Greek and will remain Greek." The Truth Team posted the video to twitter. Πηγή: «Φαντασίωση ότι η Μακεδονία ήταν πάντα ελληνική», λέει μέλος επιτροπής για τα νέα βιβλία ιστορίας | iefimerida.gr Notes: 1) I doubt that the word Greekity exist; nevertheless it is clear what text says 2) myrrh is a totally shitty translation; the Greek μύριοι=10,000. Hence κατομμύριο=100*10,000=1M. The Greek text is "χίλια μύρια". The literal translation of the Greek text is 1000 times 10,000=10M. The correct translation is "too many". I don't know if the text above makes sense. I do not have the time to produce a good translation. Those of you who can read Greek can follow the pointer above.

    Macedonia Name Dispute

    Possibly Lithoksoou is amateur. Do we have another and better source? Which one? Let us look at the existing data: Greece is full with villages that are or were called Arachova. Who created these names? In Eurytania there is a gorge named Helidona. Before its name was Lastovo. In the slavic idioms last=swallow=χελιδόνι The slavic toponyms imply that at some time there were Slavic speakers in the area. 3) The second Bulgarian empire included part of the Greek Macedonia (now). One can assume that some Bulgarians moved to these areas. 4) In August 1903 there was an upriise, Ilinden, of the slavomakedones. They failed.
  3. You mean exchanging promise of employment for a blowjob isn't a crime ? Not at all! I fear I am not a good writer. According the press 1) Lucia Evans (who alleged rape) offered conflicting accounts about her encounter with Weinstein. 2) The police censored statements (by a witness) that did not support the accusation and 3) Lucia Evans' e-mail offered a conflicting account about her encounter with Weinstein. As of now it is not clear who did what. Anyway, my target was not the exploits of Weinstein, it was the senatorial circus. Namely, 1) Obama was not allowed to propose a judge to the Supreme Court. The Republican Senators were scratching their balls and they would not have the time to assess the choice of Obama. 2) The first choice of the present president for the court was the Judge Gorsuch, the son of Anne Gorsuch Burford, who became the first female head of the Environmental Protection Agency under President Ronald Reagan. Gorsuch attended the Georgetown Preparatory School. His critics claimed that he was more to the Right than Attila the Hun. But, like Attila, he could not be stopped. 3) The second Supreme Court choice of the president was judge Kavanaugh; he too attended the Georgetown Preparatory School (simple coincidence but, given the school, they may have been both trained to Catholic casuistry). His ascent to the Supreme Court was turbulent. He was accused of attempts to rape and of excessive drinking. 4) If Weinstein is not found guilty of any rape (attempted or successful), he should be the next nomination for the Supreme Court. The nation will not have to go again through a circus like that the nomination of Judge Kavanaugh unleashed. I do not know if Weinstein has the proper education for the court. Nevertheless (1) the descendants of Abraham are believed to be good lawyers and (2) justice Sotomayor stated that “I would hope that a wise Latina woman with the richness of her experiences would more often than not reach a better conclusion than a white male who hasn't lived that life”. As a New Yorker, WeinStein has been exposed to all the bizarre ideas and he will not adopt any of them.
  4. Weinstein was in the news today MICHAEL R. SISAK and TOM HAYS, Associated Press, reported today that Manhattan's district attorney dropped part of the criminal sexual assault case against Harvey Weinstein on Thursday after evidence emerged that a police detective had coached a witness to stay silent about evidence that cast doubt on the account one of his three accusers. Elsewhere (Variety, today) we read that Prosecutors also recently obtained a draft email written by Evans to her fiance in 2015; the email contained a version of the encounter that is at odds with the version she had told law enforcement.

    I have the impression that your data are a bit off. The data listed below come from the wikipedia The Japanese had several quaint beliefs: such as a) First you attack and then you declare war b) The men in the conquered lands could be treated as slaves c) The women in the conquered could be honored by serving in brothels for the heroic Japanese soldiers. Before the use of atomic bombs a) The Vice Chief of the Imperial Japanese Navy General Staff, Vice Admiral Takijirō Ōnishi, predicted up to 20 million Japanese deaths. b) There were several studies of the USA about the American casualties. The first estimated 130,000 and 220,000 U.S. casualties, of which 25,000 to 46,000 deaths c) The USA was tracking the defensive preparations of Japan,Japanese. A second study estimated 1.7-4 millons American casualties; of them 400K-800K would be deaths. The fatalities of the Japanese were between 5M and 10M. There was an agreement with the UK; use of nuclear weapons would not be used against another country without mutual consent. The UK consented. The deaths by bombing are estimated as 129,000–226,000 The survivors of the bombings (and affected by the bombing) were ~650K according the Japanese government. As of March 31, 2018, 154,859 were still alive, There were indirect consequences; I do not know they can be assessed. The directly affected were at most 226+650K=876K The cold numbers suggest the use of atomic bombs saved lives. In a sane world Truman would have received the Nobel Peace Prize.

    There was a fellow who served as USA-president and was not a member of the upper class either before or after his presidency: Harry Truman His father was a farmer and mule trader He could not afford a college education He worked a variety of jobs after high school, first as a timekeeper for a railroad construction company, and as a clerk and a bookkeeper at two separate banks in Kansas City. After five years, he returned to farming and joined the National Guard. When World War I erupted, Truman volunteered for duty. Though he was 33 years-old—two years older than the age limit for the draft—and eligible for exemption as a farmer, he helped organize his National Guard regiment, which was ultimately called into service in the 129th Field Artillery in 1919 he made a foray into business when he and an associate, set up a hat shop in Kansas City. The business failed in 1922. With the closing of the business, Truman owed $20,000 to creditors. He refused to accept bankruptcy and insisted on paying back all the money he borrowed, which took more than 15 years. Truman was elected to the United States Senate in 1934 In 1944 FDR wanted as his running mate Henry Wallace. The rank and file liked Wallace. Nevertheless, the insiders disliked him and it was apparent that Roosevelt might not survive his fourth term. A reluctant Truman was nominated and became the running mate of Roosevelt Truman was a segregationist. Nevertheless, the president Truman (a) established by executive order the President’s Committee on Civil Rights. The committee was instructed to investigate the status of civil rights in the United States and propose measures to strengthen and protect the civil rights of American citizens. (b) was the first president to address the NAACP,July 29, 1947 (c) On February 2, 1948, Truman sent a Special Message to Congress on Civil Rights, in which he requested that Congress implement the committee’s recommendations and (d) On July 26, 1948, issued Executive Order 9981, banning segregation of the Armed Forces. . The question now is if the presidency transformed Truman into the upper class. I do not think so. The Washington Post Music Critic Paul Hume reviewed Margaret Truman's singing performance at Constitution Hall as follows: "Miss Truman is a unique American phenomenon with a pleasant voice of little size and fair quality; she cannot sing very well,is flat a good deal of the time, more last night than at any time we have heard her in past years,has not improved in the years we have heard her and still cannot sing with anything approaching professional finish." President Truman responded with the following letter to Hume: I've just read your lousy review of Margaret's concert. …...." It seems to me that you are a frustrated old man who wishes he could have been successful. When you write such poppy-cock as was in the back section of the paper you work for it shows conclusively that you're off the beam ... Some day I hope to meet you. When that happens you'll need a new nose, a lot of beefsteak for black eyes, and perhaps a supporter below! (Hume sold this letter in 1951, for $3,500. On the balance, the ”low-class” Truman was a pretty a good president.

    I was visited by Gabriel last night. According to him Jesus is confused. Was He upper class and important or low class and irrelevant?

    Syriza at the Helm

    In the Guardian (09/26/2018) we read Today we can read in the iefimerida (in Greek, self translated, somewhat ungrammatical): It urges the European and Greek Authorities and Prosecutors to look for evidence and to carry out extensive research. At the same time, there is an alarm about the dangers of thousands of refugees and migrants in the plight of the Reception Centers under the responsibility of the government.

    1) After the end of the Peloponnesian war: Athens surrendered in 404 BC. The surrender stripped Athens of its walls, its fleet, and all of its overseas possessions. Corinth and Thebes demanded that Athens should be destroyed and all its citizens should be enslaved. However, the Spartans announced their refusal to destroy a city that had done a good service at a time of greatest danger to Greece. and took Athens into their own system. Athens was "to have the same friends and enemies" as Sparta.[22] (Possibly because a destroyed Athens would result in a strong Corinth and strong Thebes) 2) Let us look at the Alexander the great:: a) In 335 B.C. The Thebians revolted against the Macedonians; eventually they were defeated. Those who survived were sold (slaves) and the city was destroyed. b) After the fall or Tyrus 2,000 Tyrians were crucified; the rest ,, roughly 30,000,, were sold into slavery …. c)..In the fall of 324 BC … Hephaestion fell ill with high fever and eventually died. The details are not known. Plutarch says that Hephaestion had ignored medical advice and as soon as his doctor, Glaucias, had gone off to the theatre, he ate a large breakfast consisting of a boiled fowl and a cooler of wine, and then fell sick and died.[7 According to Arrian Alexander had the doctor, Glaucias, executed for his lack of care. I, for one, fail to understand why just everyone wants to claim Alexander as member of his ethnic group; I have even read texts (in the Internet) that claim that he was Muslim.

    On September 30 one could read in the Washington Post one could read the review of a book titled Winners Take All: The Elite Charade; Charade of Changing the World. The first two paragraphs of the review can be read below:

    The irony is good but The number 77 (above) and the types of rich/poor patterns of lying (above) need some explaining. The statements of the Economist, if not true, must be shown to be false. The article that I quoted above is also claiming (right or wrong) that The statement above , if true, cannot be explained with the a**holes exist theory. I, for one, hope that The Republicans will understand how and why the bozo was nominated and The Democrats will understand how and why the bozo was elected The a**holes theory will not help anyone to avoid a new CatasTrumbia and/or WreCklintonia.

    1) Neither Bashibazuk nor Bashibzuk BashibOzuk 2) While we were rhapsodizing about the upper class, Shamus Khan wrote an article (appeared today) in the Washington Post) under the title Kavanaught is lying, His upbringing explains why. The article is not really about the present Kavanauthtian statements but it raises questions about the ethics of the upper American class. Namely, (For more, if interested, use google)

    Bashibzuk Let us hope that there is one that is not bad and that when I retire every personality will be pensioned. If one had read the text copied from the Economist above, one would have read that If these statements are true, I would deduce that the upper class is mostly parasitic. The motto of the revolting America was “Give me liberty, or give me death!" . I doubt that Patrick Henry would have said, if living today, “ screw freedom, give me penicillin, a car, a television and a computer“.

    Are you serious? The upper class is mostly parasitic. If the upper class were as smart as it believe it is, it would be speaking to the plebes in a way they can understand. The way the upper class is speaking to the plebes m is of the type: II do not care for your ideas, hopes, or fears. You are unable to understand what is important. Vote for me and (1)I will solve the problems you really have while (2) simply ignoring the problems you think you have. Some of your problems are insolvable and nothing can be done for them. Trust me, I know better than you.
