“Un poet fusese intr-o zi chemat de un puternic al zilei sa-i dea bani sa scoata o foaie. I se daduse o suma de o suta de mii de lei. N-apucase el sa publice primul numar din ziar, si adversarul acelui om politic ii trimisese poetului un mesaj prin care il invita sa stea impreuna de vorba de o chestiune importanta.Marele poet se duse.
,,Domnule, cica i-ar fi spus acesta, dumneata poet atat de insemnat, sa te inhami la cadrul politic al unor astfel de oameni?”
“Ce oameni?” a raspuns poetul indignat.

Mitt Romney: Free Speech Is for Billionaires, Not School-Teachers

At an educational forum this week, Mitt Romney called for restricting teachers’ unions from participating in the political process.


Mitt Romney:

What does a plutocracy look like? How about a leveraged buy-out artist who used his family connections – and gamed the tax code – to amass a $378 million fortune , and whose campaign is almost entirely financed by deep-pocketed conservative sugar-daddies, saying that while money equals Constitutionally protected free speech for his own donors, there should be limits on political spending by teachers making $75,000 per year.

Alain-Fournier (1886)

Henri-Alban Fournier, who published as Alain-Fournier, was a French novelist known for his single full-length work, Le Grand Meaulnes.

Though the feast held in 1621 may be better remembered, the first official national Thanksgiving in the US was declared in 1789.
