This is not exactly a complete sentence but I guess it's a quote anyway:

interested in counter-purrveillance. I think I'll add it to my signature .

just saw this on reddit:

when one person claims the sun is shining, and the other says it's raining, a journalist's job is not to quote both, but to look out the window and see what the weather actually is.

About French president « Emmanuel Macron »:
« Macron is not the president of the rich. He is the president of the super-rich » -François Hollande, ex-president of the ex-republic of France

About the German Chancellor „Angela Merkel”:
She is destroying my Europe -Helmut Kohl, Ex-Chancellor of the Federal Republic of Germany. I never liked the guy. He was on top when the biggest corruption scandal agitated the country. I never liked Mitterand either.

Then, suddenly, like: „eat this. BAM!“, -this-: https://img.aws.la-croix.com/2016/05...2_1400_932.jpg

Darn. They got me. I am done folks... Let me lie down, here and proceed as you please. Meanwhile, she destroyed Europe.

"If you want to build a better future, you're going to have to do it yourself. Politics will take us only so far and if history is any guide, they are the least reliable means of achieving effective change. They're not going to jump up and protect your rights. Technology works differently than law. Technology knows no jurisdiction."

-- Edward Snowden

^ reminds me:
Quote:
You will not be able to stay home, brother
You will not be able to plug in, turn on and cop out
You will not be able to lose yourself on skag and skip out for beer during commercials
Because the revolution will not be televised

The revolution will not be televised
The revolution will not be brought to you by Xerox in 4 parts without commercial interruptions
The revolution will not show you pictures of Nixon blowing a bugle and leading a charge by John Mitchell, General Abrams and Mendel Rivers to eat hog maws confiscated from a Harlem sanctuary
The revolution will not be televised

The revolution will not be brought to you by the Schaefer Award Theatre and will not star Natalie Wood and Steve McQueen or Bullwinkle and Julia
The revolution will not give your mouth sex appeal
The revolution will not get rid of the nubs
The revolution will not make you look five pounds thinner
The revolution will not be televised, Brother

There will be no pictures of you and Willie May pushing that shopping cart down the block on the dead run, or trying to slide that color TV into a stolen ambulance
NBC will not be able predict the winner at 8:32 on reports from 29 districts
The revolution will not be televised

There will be no pictures of pigs shooting down brothers on the instant replay
There will be no pictures of Whitney Young being run out of Harlem on a rail with a brand new process
There will be no slow motion or still life of Roy Wilkens strolling through Watts in a red, black and green liberation jumpsuit that he had been saving for just the right occasion

Green Acres, The Beverly Hillbillies, and Hooterville Junction will no longer be so god damned relevant, and women will not care if Dick finally screwed Jane on Search for Tomorrow because black people will be in the street looking for a brighter day
The revolution will not be televised

There will be no highlights on the eleven o'clock news, and no pictures of hairy armed women liberationists and Jackie Onassis blowing her nose
The theme song will not be written by Jim Webb or Francis Scott Key, nor sung by Glen Campbell, Tom Jones, Johnny Cash or Englebert Humperdink
The revolution will not be televised

The revolution will not be right back after a message about a white tornado, white lightning, or white people
You will not have to worry about a dove in your bedroom, a tiger in your tank, or the giant in your toilet bowl
The revolution will not go better with Coke
The revolution will not fight the germs that may cause bad breath
The revolution will put you in the driver's seat

The revolution will not be televised, will not be televised, will not be televised, will not be televised
The revolution will be no re-run brothers
The revolution will be live

Er... yes. That has been hard to bear... or something (Possibly my father, when others exchanged their experience in foreign camps for German prisoners of war. He was caught by U.S. troops and handed over to the British. So.., no stories to tell. Just smiles and heads up for the poor guys who had already lost everything else. Identical rations for the POWs and their surveillors, even in times of food shortage.

In one word, for someone who preferred working in stables and on the field: Holidays...

Yeah. Thank Yous, too.
I do not like the way that the opportunity of 100 years after 14/18 is wasted, here in France. Let me just make some noise, here, as I cannot keep up the opposition for weeks:
You (the British) won a war (different kind of war) equipped with only the nobility of your spirits as arms. Your fault that I am here to say so... ” (Myself, if you care)
