Djemt e Shem-it

Interesant! Hedhja ne kosh te plehrave e fese te Babes, Birit dhe Profetit, pak a shume mund te mendohet si antisemitizem korrekt(ne kuptimin qe as Arabet nuk ngelen jashte). Ironia eshte qe pa qene i mire informuar per djemt e Shem-it, dhe cudive ideologjike te Gjysme-henes Pjellore nuk mund te ishe kaq ateist korrekt Shqiptar (madje me korrekt se Richard Dawkins  qe nuk guxon te beje mekatin e antisemitizmit)

Recently, the Albanian government made public its intention of privatising the remaining state ownership of subjects operating in the strategic and non-strategic sectors. However, apart from certain signals coming from the Ministry of the Economy, Trade and Energy (METE), the use of privatisation vouchers in this new and probably final phase of privatisation has not been made clear and concrete through concise strategy and legal backup.

It is the white man’s burden to be a failed knight in shining armor. I have, on occasion, donned that wretched armor only to find myself in a rather quixotic position: the wench not only did not need saving, she was out to get me.

So here we are then, dear X, caught up in this comedy of errors! As another woman said: no good deed goes unpunished. Would that there were some nobility in all of us to accept that punishment which is due.

Here’s a little piece of poetry by one Dorothy Parker (and I’d rather read prose) that I always found ticklish:

By the time you swear you’re his,
Shivering and sighing,
And he vows his passion is
Infinite, undying –
Lady, make a note of this:
One of you is lying.


Owing to the recent press the Aromanians of Albania have been getting, i have been inundated with questions by Albanian-Americans who can’t tell ‘who’s what’ anymore. I don’t blame them. Here’s a typical answer I’d give to assuage their fears:

Ok I thought i made it clear that they never had an ethnic consciousness(and still dont)..just a linguistic one (those who can tell apart an Albanian orthodox from an Aromanian are very few and far between).

The Aromanians are  getting press recently due to the fact Albanian media pundits are frankly NUTS! Conspiracy theories abound involving jews and George Soros and his Popperian ‘open society’ panidea; and the accusation is that the aromanians are more amenable to these types of ideas owing to the fact that they kind of are like jews though at a smaller scale. Hence you find them controlling the purses of the Open Society Institute in Tirana.

You ask: Why are they primarily concentrated  in the south? Beacuse they gave up animal husbandry for a settled life involving merchandising..and for sure they werent going to source or sell their wares up north since there have always been a lot more deadbeats up there;)

Evropa Lindore po perjeton crregullime te jashtme te cilat kufizojne reagimin efikas te politikave te saj. Ky artikull thote qe BE-u duhet te jape Evropes Lindore mbeshtetje si fiskale ashtu edhe financiare, perndryshe rrezikohet nje krize me e tejzgjatur financiare si per shtetet anetare potenciale ashtu edhe per shtetet e anetaresuar rishtazi.

Usually an increasing yield for treasury securities means that there is a decline in demand/liquidity. The Schedule II banks are either not employing the liquidity they have, or simply do not have it.

Kush e ka lexuar Candide prej Voltaire-it e mban mend profesorin Pangloss dhe teorine qe me vone mori emrin e ketij personazhi: jetojme ne boten me te mire te mundshme. Pa u futur shume ne detaje te lengshme, apo proze me ngjyre, skandali seksual i nje ministri Shqiptar verteton qe bota ku jeton Shqiperia eshte Pangloss-iane, dhe kjo vertetohet lehte me kete skandal, madje me faktin qe Shqiperia ka imunitet prej cdo furtune ekonomike globale pikerisht sepse jeton ne boten me te mire te mundshme per Shqiperine dhe Shqiptaret.
