I love how people try to label everything as racist. Call a white man a monkey, and it's clearly aimed at his intelligence level/other relevant attributes, but call a darker skinned man a monkey, and it can only be about his skin color. It always seems funny to me, because then the people calling it racist are being more racist than the person making the joke (unless they actually meant it that way).
You're talking about a man who came from a poor family, who through hard work made something of his life, and was elected by the people (not the suits that run the money markets) of his country to high office.
WTF is wrong with CP today -- maligning Shakespeare, then taking cheap shots at good men, just because they're Iranian?
I wanna be a eunuchs developer! Pass me a bread knife!
Shakespeare's okay. We know he had it in for Richard III. It was a master stroke burying him under concrete in a car park. That explains why the Mafia liked to bury their victims under football stadiums and freeways - allegedly.
"I do not have to forgive my enemies, I have had them all shot." — Ramón Maria Narváez (1800-68).
"I don't need to shoot my enemies, I don't have any." - Me (2012).
I just noticed the authors email. For a moment I thought it said nvarchar@..., looked again and noticed it's nvarchaver@.... Appearently the authors name is Nicholas Varchaver.
I didn't read the (entire) article by the way. Someone should make a movie about him and then I'll watch it.
Anyway, we let them, Johnny Foreigner that is, use English words for free all the time!
Good English words and phrases like:
- et al
- per diem
- coup d'etat
- curriculum vitae
[That last one is a trick, added to confuse and confound.]
- Life in the fast lane is only fun if you live in a country with no speed limits.
- Of all the things I have lost, it is my mind that I miss the most.
- I vaguely remember having a good memory...
