Quote of the day

The past is what you remember, imagine you remember, convince yourself you remember, or pretend you remember.  – Harold Pinter who celebrates his 86th birthday today.

He also said:

There are no hard distinctions between what is real and what is unreal, nor between what is true and what is false. A thing is not necessarily either true or false; it can be both true and false.


One way of looking at speech is to say it is a constant stratagem to cover nakedness.


It’s so easy for propaganda to work, and dissent to be mocked.

    Indeed he saw through the lies that allowed NATO to destroy Yugoslavia and the travesty of putting Slobodan Milošević on trial

    He didn’t live long enough to see the destruction of Libya and the replay that is being attempted in Syria

    For now we are easily manipulated but hopefully in time we will become wise to the tricks the powerful use to manipulate us

    Andrei, if that mad sick Clinton woman meddles in East Ukraine before she dies, you will smell the smoke from your room. I wish we could say goodbye to NATO and the UN right now.

    I didn’t know much about Yugoslavia. I will look it up.
