je suis venu au bureau à huit heures et quarante. je sens content mais je ne sais pas pourquoi. peut-être parce que c'est un vendredi? en tous cas, je lisant ce article aux politiques ce matin -- wasnt there a law prohibiting politicians, after being elected or assigned to the position, bringing income/capital out of the country? or was that dollars only .. what about familiy members who serve as front, as guise to the family (ill gotten) fortune, how are they accountable? people in military for example and then they live at forbes.
i am acquainted with some people in the media, who i thought were the key to fight graft and corruption since its their job to expose these things. then i learn the media is part of the cancer. they, of all people, are in the pockets of these politicians. its messy. sometimes, i dont want to think about it anymore. wish i wasn't as helpless migrating to less toxic environments.
finalement, j'ai vu le film que s'appele live show. its a pathetic movie with pathetic characters. people who are victims by choice. i realize half way from watching how, either im too detached whats really happening, or it is bluntly i might add, making excuses for their destructive behaviours. check this. one woman who gave up her right to her child and then comes back many years later. when her kid turns her down, she sits in one corner and cries about it. what the f*ck is up with that?? if this is filipino culture .. who is to blame me for not wanting to be part of it.
caught the second debate between bush and kerry. i saw bits and pieces of the first and third debates from the news. kerry appears to be the more superior debater frequently found with precise backup from named authorities from both left and right camps. bush, on the other hand, appeared convinced if not overtly intense in bravado. which does not make a good debater because his emotions (are on the surface) and thus his arguments might be misconstrued as .. not well thought of. only to be caught lying and im only too happy to read about them the next day from the newspapers. the media is at work there.
stephen hawking's god Their "god", he says, is really just "an abstract principle of order and harmony", a set of mathematical equations. [max] this is different from the anthropomorphic version of "god" like yaweh, allah, jesus, jupiter, and zeus. this is somewhat similar to what einstein said about his "god". that it is the universe itself. not necessarily a single sentient mind at work
which ten commandmentsThou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth: [max] this is the protestant version of the second commandment which fundamentally restricts its members from studying the planets, mapping of the stars and the universe, outside of our planets atmosphere, or we can loosely interpret as well the study of the weather (and they have - see entry on galileo and other great minds persecuted of this "offense"), nor mapping the oceans. a clear divide from the goals of science. see more in the link.
