". . . But the past does not exist independently from the present. Indeed, the past is only past because there is a present, just as I can point to something over there only because I am here. But nothing is inherently over there or here. In that sense, the past has no content. The past -- or more accurately, pastness -- is a position. Thus, in no way can we identify the past as past." p. 15

". . . But we may want to keep in mind that deeds and words are not as distinguishable as often we presume. History does not belong only to its narrators, professional or amateur. While some of us debate what history is or was, others take it into their own hands." p. 153

Garbage From Obama

Every farkin' politician plays this very tired Cuba card to show how tough s/he is on something-or-other without ever having to do a damned thing. I hate them all.

Our Main Goal: Freedom for Cuba?

Why the fark isn't he talking about restoring freedom to the U.S.A.?

What farkin' lazy, cowardly hypocritical, shallow bu!!shyte.
