Marinho Pinto

"A Justiça é forte para os fracos mas fraca para os fortes."

"Sem nenhuma ilusão mas com todos os ideais."


ver (RTP):

.....era necessário que Marinho Pinto encontrasse o registo certo, que lhe permitisse ser consistente e algo mais que meramente retórico e discursivo.
Arrisca-se Marinho Pinto a pouco mais conseguir que a atenção da rua, quando seria necessário que a sua coragem pudesse mobilizar as inteligências.

aqui -->>

Fazer assim, por exemplo:
"A Associação Sindical dos Juízes Portugueses entregou ao ministro da Justiça um documento onde propõe mudanças ao mapa judiciário proposto pelo Governo. "
Tudo prontinho, é assim que se faz.
.....paladino dos puros.....

.....conversas de café, são “declarações políticas”.

Embargo à carne brasileira.

Indeed a treasure

IN CONGRESS, July 4, 1776.
The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America,

When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.
That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed,
That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.--

Portugal normal

A lesma da operadora desconcerta-me completamente e fico pasmado com as pessoas que, com aparente sinceridade, relatam estas banalíssimas portuguesices com enorme espanto e impulsiva preocupação como se houvesse outro Portugal que não este e furioso com a idiotice de alguns que apontam a "falta de meios" como causa destas animalidades.

Fiquemos a aguardar a segunda parte: a chegada da ambulância - será que o condutor tem a carta? Terá seguro, o veículo? Far-lhe-ão um teste de alcoolemia? - e da GNR (a tal Autoridade) - terão bigode? alterarão irremediavelmente a cena do crime? Será algum deles cunhado da vítima?

Birds (pdf)

"The ivory-billed woodpecker, a spectacular bird long thought to be extinct, has been found alive in North America, Science magazine reports."

The last confirmed sighting was in 1971 in southern Louisiana. Most ornithologists now believe the ivorybill is no more.

"Later, Harrison said, "I have always believed that the Ivory-billed Woodpecker still lived, and finding one has been a dominant force in my life for more than three decades. Finding an ivory-bill was a 33-year dream come true for me."

Fitzpatrick is among the few to have witnessed one of the seven recent sightings of an ivory-billed woodpecker. He saw the bird in March 2004.
A reported sighting of an ivory-bill in Florida in 1999 initiated intensive searches for the bird that was last documented in 1944. Fitzpatrick was invited in March 2002 by the Cornell University Laboratory of Ornithology to join the search team, working as a field biologist/ornithologist first in Louisiana, and the following year in Florida. Another reported sighting early in 2004 in central Arkansas set off renewed searching, and Fitzpatrick worked with the team in that area in 2004 and 2005. The sightings were announced in April 2005 in the journal, Science.

But, said Richard Prum, a Yale ornithologist and one of the three, while he found the audio convincing it did not change his opinion that the bird in the video is a pileated woodpecker. A co-author, Mark Robbins of the University of Kansas, said only that he found the audio compelling. Jerome A. Jackson of Florida Gulf Coast University was out of the country when the paper was withdrawn. He still does not accept the video or the audio evidence.

"evidence for the existence of a population of Ivory-billed Woodpeckers, in the form of unambiguous photographs/videos, specimens, or DNA from feathers, has not been forthcoming.", diz não sei quem, na wikipedia (?), com razão.
A mim cheira-me que os avistamentos são nitidamente uma grande aldrabice. Pena.

Another possible source of guidance for teenagers is television, but television's message has always been that the need for truth, wisdom and world peace pales by comparison with the need for a toothpaste that offers whiter teeth and fresher breath.
Dave Barry

Outra fonte possível de formação para os adolescentes é a televisão mas a mensagem da televisão foi sempre que a necessidade de verdade de sabedoria e de paz mundial desvanece em comparação com a necessidade de ter uma pasta dentífrica que promete dentes mais brancos e hálito mais fresco.




Acreditar que um certo judeu morto-vivo cósmico nos pode dar a vida eterna se simbolicamente comermos a sua carne, bebermos o seu sangue e telepaticamente lhe dissermos que o aceitamos como amo para que assim ele possa limpar a nossa alma da força maléfica presente em toda a humanidade porque uma mulher-costela foi convencida por uma serpente falante a comer de uma árvore mágica.

Faz todo o sentido.

A publicidade da pessimus é insuportável.

A quantidade de idiotas que tem empregos relevantes parece-me ser ainda mais perniciosa do que a quantidade de desempregados (que pode ser encarada como uma oportunidade de reordenação por mérito.)

Inner voice

“Quantum mechanics is very impressive. But an inner voice tells me that it is not yet the real thing. The theory produces a good deal but hardly brings us closer to the secret of the Old One. I am at all events convinced that He does not play dice”.

(in letter to Max Born (1970-1882)
in 1926).

C'o a Broca

Welsh actress Catherine Zeta Jones went from having heavy ethnic features -- looking like a South American Hispanic to be more precise -- to looking European, which has undoubtedly helped her popularity among Europeans and even placed her among top-ranked sexy/beautiful women!


"Sabe-se hoje (ver Gould, 1981; 1986) que não existe qualquer correlação entre populações («raças») e capacidade craniana; nem tão pouco se verifica correlação alguma entre inteligência e capacidade craniana."

Sempre esteve à frente dos olhos de toda a gente que as capacidades mentais nada têm que ver com o tamanho das cabeças. Basta olhar para os comportamentos dos animais. (Vespas, aranhas, polvos, papagaios..... e compará-lo com o de certos hominídeos!)
