***********************************************
A WOMAN AFTER MY OWN HEART
****************************************************
In the introduction to her biography of the celebrated Italian novelist, Elsa Morante, Lily Tuck writes: “A truth teller, she tended to say hurtful things...She detested any sort of artifice, posturing, falsehood, she detested the misuse of power.”
*
THEY NEVER LEARN
**************************************
Some Armenians are so hedamenats and aboosh that they think one way of defending the national badiv is by insulting Turks, and they stubbornly refuse to see that not only Turks outnumber us, but when it comes to delivering profanities and insults, they are pros and we don't even qualify as rank amateurs beside them. To Armenians who are addicts of profanities and insults, I suggest they stick to insulting their fellow Armenians, because then they have a better chance to come out on top.
*
MART BIDI CH'ELLANK
***************************************
Whenever someone would recount a story about a fellow Armenian who had behaved badly, someone would say, “mart bidi ch'ellank!” meaning (freely translated) “once a jackass, always a jackass," or “we are a hopeless bunch!” I must have heard that line a thousand times, but never by those engaged in fund raising. These gentlemen know that if they flatter the dupes they plan to milk, they will be rewarded with more generous contributions. Hence the popular propaganda lines first nation this, first nation that, which may also be interpreted as first nation to be brainwashed and first nation to be taken in by foreign propaganda. As for the propaganda line that asserts we are just about the smartest people on earth, that was obviously designed to cover up the fact that we may well be be just about the dumbest.

***********************************************
ON SOLUTIONS
*********************************
Never ask for solutions to our problems because all solutions begin with honesty, and since no one has yet discovered a verbal formula that can convert a crook to an honest man, all talk of solutions is a waste of time.
*
DEDICATION
*******************************
The dedication to my next book will read: “For my critics and detractors – my most faithful muses.”
*
HEADLINES
*************************
A headline in our paper reads: “Hour of death should be 'chosen by God' Pope says,” the implication being, the Pope can read God's mind like an open book.
*
Another headline: “Anglicans owe Darwin apology, bishop says.” But how does one go about apologizing to a skeleton?
*
GREED
************************
About the present financial crisis, I wonder how many CEOs said or thought “If things go wrong and the whole structure collapses, the government is bound to step in and fix it. We are too big to fail.”
*
A CEO at a hearing: “I take full responsibility.” He also took home $240,000,000 we are told.
*
ON REASON
******************************
You can reason only with the reasonable. With the unreasonable you can only go down on your knees and beseech the assistance of the Holy Spirit, if, that is, you believe in that mumbo jumbo.
*
ON LOVE
********************
Our religion teaches us to love our enemies. It says nothing about loving our fellow Armenians. Have I said that before? No matter. Some things are worth repeating.
*
WORDS OF WISDOM
**********************************
Albert Einstein: “It's not that I am so smart, it's just that I stay with problems longer.”

***********************************************
EASIER SAID THAN DONE
*****************************************
Speaking of Obama's favorite word: change means introducing new legislation, and “new laws,” according to an old German saying, “are followed by new tricks.”
*
WHAT'S DONE IS DONE
**********************************
The very same readers who accuse me of living in the past whenever I quote an Armenian writer, never get tired of speaking or reading about the massacres in the Ottoman Empire.
*
CANNIBALS
**************************
When they bite me and I refuse to bite back, they resent it as if to say, “What's the matter, am I not good enough to be eaten?”
*
ONE-UPMANSHIP
*****************************
The ease with which they assume to know better even when the subject under discussion is a new one to them.
*
CONFESSION
****************************
Speaking of dupes: in my youth when I heard a speechifier say something, I believed he meant it. And then I met some of them...
*
PROGRESS
***********************
Some of my readers are getting better at dishing out insults. With a little more effort, practice, and discipline they may be as good as Turks.
*
AN OLD TRICK
***************************
When the men at the top are corrupt, they emphasize the importance of patriotism, after which they stigmatize dissidents as unpatriotic.
*
MEMO
**********************
To those who recycle chauvinist crapola, I say, Leave it to the professionals of which we have more than our share. I assure you, they don't need your two cents' worth.
*
SOPHISTS
**************************
Those who want to get away with lies, rape, and murder, will tell you, these things existed since the beginning of time and no nation on earth is without them, in the same way that today they say corruption is universal and we might as well grin and bear it.

***********************************************
QUESTIONS
*****************************************
If they sling mud anonymously, is it because deep down somewhere they are ashamed of what they do?
*
If our Turcocentric ghazetajis keep writing about Turks, is it because they have nothing good to say about their fellow Armenians?
*
If we are proud of our multi-millionaires, shouldn't we be humble of our slum-dwellers?
*
Is it humanly possible to ignore or forget the truth after hearing it?
*
I may react to an honest disagreement but not to an insult. How does one react to an insult without going down into the gutter where the other has the advantage?
*
ASSERTIONS
*************************
No one can be as dangerous as a fool who is manipulated by another fool.
*
If you say to a bunch of crooks, “Gentlemen, let's be honest!” don't expect a mass conversion.
*
One cannot speak of vision where "the blind leads the blind."
*
There is a big difference between “he thinks,” and “he thinks he thinks.” To think, to really think, means to go beyond the boundaries of the already thought.
*
Who benefits when we cover up that which is negative? Surely not the victims. It follows, to cover up is to support and legitimize the victimizers among us.
*
Some of the dumbest people I know are Armenians who think they are smarter than Turks.
*
Communism has been defined as capitalism of the state, and capitalism as free enterprise for the poor.
*
Cowardice in the Ottoman Empire among Turks – it's understandable.
But cowardice in America among fellow Armenians – it's not.

BTW Ara Read your words before calling me a liar

And I really wonder when somebody insults you, when somebody verbally abuses you, you are a victim but when somebody stands against you with no verbal abuse in his speech, with respect and good manner of dialogue he tracks your writings, tries to view them in some angle and calls people for an action but with no abuse and hurt in it guess what you do ?

Yep ! you call that person a liar. Nice. Really nice
to be read by inbred morons is in itself an insult.
i don't write for them, neither do i write for children. / ara

wild applause to SENIOR I decided to refer to the writer as SENIOR. This states two things: My respects to him as a writer and my respects to his age as because I am a child.

Thanks anyways SENIOR for categorizing people as inbred morons. I am really having troubles to understand. Maybe because I am inbred moron or maybe I am a child or maybe both. The fact that I do not see myself not one nor another does not prove it. And I know this. Am I right ?

In one place SENIOR states that he writes on garbage and he needs that garbage to exist to write on them. Sincere and nice. So now it comes a news that there are different types of garbages.

A sort of garbage is called "suitable for SENIOR's writings" and I guess what this garbage does is just insults SENIOR back (please read "makes him happy to continue writing on them") and as of it continues the existence of SENIOR's literature and SENIOR itself.

Good. Let's say THANKS to this sort of garbage instead of SENIOR, since we have to thank thousands or millions of people who live and let a single SENIOR to live and not end up with suicide. Thank you garbage. Live and let others live. Especially SENIORS. We know that we built a sociaety that takes care of SENIORs.

But there is another sort of a garbage, a member of it beautifully called
inbred moron. Nice again. This type of garbage is not suitable for SENIOR's writings since it is not insulting him back. What this garbage uses is a simple, not a poetic and not an academic language with no words of abuse but with the rhetoric questions/pointed questions and calls for actions. And so this garbage makes no sense for SENIOR. But SENIOR is a sort of a person who cannot live without a single insult and even in this case he is giving a birth to a unique sort of insult. Here it is

"to be read by inbred morons is in itselt an insult".

Fantastic !!!

Keep on going SENIOR. When he sees somebody fails to hurt/abuse/insult him he takes his hand, puts there a knife and hits
himself with it To have something to scream about later on. Great !!!

Երեխա jan, just cut off the line! Use the feature provided by the forum!

You'll feel much better letting someone exercising in absolute privacy his "intellectual" fantasies! Besides it's useless replying to inbred morons!

Cheers to you!

I can't believe that someone even makes it to read the whole thread submitted by ara. Respect to both - the writer and his audience : )
