A greve e o povo do xerox

Ações humanas e acontecimentos sociais podem ser localizáveis no tempo e no espaço, isso é banal. Mas essa banalidade significa que, em algum sentido, essas coisas tem uma certa 'objetualidade', isto é, podem e devem ser descritas. Sendo assim, a identificação delas depende, em medida importante, dos conceitos ali envolvidos. E tem mais, tem as relacões. No caso, as “greves” da Universidade sempre provocam acontecimentos que podem ser descritos como “objetivos”: demissões de motoristas de ônibus, de operadores de xerox e de outras ocupações que vicejam na periferia da magnífica instituição.
Dizer o que é uma greve, então, depende de uma certa decisão conceitual. Qualquer dicionário de política indica, na tipologia das greves, greves de protesto, greves simbólicas, demonstrativas, de constituição de identidade, de tática, etc. Assim, ao contarmos as greves vamos usar algumas notas características que darão ao conceito limites, contornos, condições de aplicação.
E os eventos? Um evento é usualmente uma mudança, com alguma duração, que podemos observar nas qualidades ou nas relações de alguma coisa. Não por acaso a expressão por vezes é usada para designar fenômenos naturais nos quais as explicações de natureza causal são relevantes e onde prescindimos de conceitos intencionais, que são, ao contrário, indispensáveis para o conceito de ação. O Osama Bin, por exemplo, não pode reivindicar Katrina.

We work like a horse.
We eat like a pig.
We like to play chicken.
You can get someone's goat.
We can be as slippery as a snake.
We get dog tired.
We can be as quiet as a mouse.
We can be as quick as a cat.
Some of us are as strong as an ox.
People try to buffalo others.
Some are as ugly as a toad.
We can be as gentle as a lamb.
Sometimes we are as happy as a lark.
Some of us drink like a fish.
We can be as proud as a peacock.
A few of us are as hairy as a gorilla.
You can get a frog in your throat.
We can be a lone wolf.
But I'm having a whale of a time!

You have a riveting web log
and undoubtedly must have
atypical & quiescent potential
for your intended readership.
May I suggest that you do
everything in your power to
honor your encyclopedic/omniscient
Designer/Architect as well
as your revering audience.
As soon as we acknowledge
this Supreme Designer/Architect,
Who has erected the beauteous
fabric of the universe, our minds
must necessarily be ravished with
wonder at this infinate goodness,
wisdom and power.


Please remember to never
restrict anyone's opportunities
for ascertaining uninterrupted
existence for their quintessence.

There is a time for everything,
a season for every activity
under heaven. A time to be
born and a time to die. A
time to plant and a time to
harvest. A time to kill and
a time to heal. A time to
tear down and a time to
rebuild. A time to cry and
a time to laugh. A time to
grieve and a time to dance.
A time to scatter stones
and a time to gather stones.
A time to embrace and a
time to turn away. A time to
search and a time to lose.
A time to keep and a time to
throw away. A time to tear
and a time to mend. A time
to be quiet and a time to
speak up. A time to love
and a time to hate. A time
for war and a time for peace.


Best wishes for continued ascendancy,
Dr. Howdy

P.S. One thing of which I am sure is
that the common culture of my youth
is gone for good. It was hollowed out
by the rise of ethnic "identity politics,"
then splintered beyond hope of repair
by the emergence of the web-based
technologies that so maximized and
facilitated cultural choice as to make
the broad-based offerings of the old
mass media look bland and unchallenging
by comparison."

esteemed site promotes no merchandise -

Nice blog! I like your layout.

As you might know, reading blogs can be a dangerous business. One blog I visited actually opened my PC's cd-rom. Others have scripts in their pages that do all sorts of things. God knows what they put on my PC.

I use Evidence Eliminator to clean my PC of this "filth" daily. I suggest that you should too for your own privacy and for your PC's safety.

I admit it, I sell Evidence Eliminator. I usually sell it for ten percent off. But because you are reading my comment (thank you), I want to give you half off. Just send me an email at info(at)evidence-eliminator-info.com and I'll reply with a special URL where you can get half off.

If you search for download evidence eliminator free in the search engines, you may find other sites like my download evidence eliminator free site. But you won't get this special offer (smile).

Well...let me know, and it's very nice meeting you.
