schestowitz 29 13:15 Murmur campaign around #chavez is reminiscent of the witchhunt against #assange with the so-called "chronic flu".Self-fulfilling prophecies?Dec 29 13:15
schestowitz"As a Venezuelan, all I can say is that I don't believe in anything, not the good rumors, not the small information the government leaks out to the people. As any human living being, I wish him the best, but I wouldn't account for the so perfect recuperation the government seems to present, neither I will believe news about his degraded health. This has been and ofn/off thing regarding personalities like Chavez (i.e. Fidel Dec 29 13:15

schestowitz 29 13:15 The #us press seems to be celebrating #cancer when it affects a leader of a country headed by non-puppet (of the US). Very mean.Dec 29 13:15

schestowitzI won't be defending the USoNA (United States of North America as they should call themselves), but neither will I defend our current government, that lacks serious transparency, anti-corruption solutions, and is clearly more given to make trades with the likes of Irak or China, anti-freedom countries.Dec 29 13:16
schestowitzTo support Chavez just 'cause he is anti-north-american is as bad as supporting the current North American politics.Dec 29 13:16

schestowitzHappiness.Dec 29 14:56
schestowitzWithout happiness, neither marriage nor a good upbringing for children can be assured.Dec 29 14:56
schestowitzHaving said that, money does not necessitate lack of happiness throughout its making (known as work). The secret is, finding a way to make one's interest or hobby profitable in levels that are sustainable. Too much money leads to distraction from its real value -- the reason why many ultra-rich people get depressed.Dec 29 14:56

schestowitz 29 14:57 John got killed. John was a brother in law of Jane, who was killed by a foreign secret service without trial. Oh, that makes it OK then.Dec 29 14:57
schestowitz""Guilt by association" is [always] all about unproven things. It's a logical fallacy, so it obviously doesn't make any sense. Individual doesn't have to be guilty, it is sufficient to associate her with someone else to "prove" her "guilty". So it doesn't matter whether she's guilty or not for those who think in this way."Dec 29 14:57

schestowitzI like to make sure I understand arguments.You are saying that because it is hard to live on a low wage we should impose penalties on employers that negotiate agreements with workers at a rate less then some minimum wage. Is that right?Dec 29 17:00
