Endorse political candidates – ethical dilemma
The pastor of an Albuquerque megachurch allowed Republican gubernatorial candidate Allen Weh to speak to the church and prayed for him in front of the congregation. Because Weh’s opponents weren’t invited to do the same, that’s an implicit endorsement – and it’s not appropriate.

1. I am not a fun of libertarians but I like the idea. Some people are thinking even inside of a smaller box, inside the box of Democrats or Republicans only.

2. NO on 106 ! YOU decide not buying health care insurance, YOU don’t pay your hospital’s bills, WE have to decide to pay for YOU !

Some people are asking us to vote „NO” to all proposition !
You can read arguments „pro” and „against” all proposition Arizona 2010 november election visiting this site of Arizona Secretary of State Arizona 2010 Propositions Consistent conservative should vote YES on 106 and No on 302 and Democrats should vote NO on 106 and YES on 302 maybe some of them will get out of the box and will vote according to the better of Arizona economy

Doua dintre publicatiile bistritene din spatiul virtual ne-au interogat. Intr-un gest prietenos ne-au oferit ocazia sa lasam sa ne cunoasca opiniile alti bistriteni acum dupa mai multi ani ca imigranti in America.

Simona Lucescu si visul ei american „…Crede că rom­ânii ar trebui sa aibă mai multă încredere în ei şi că n-ar trebui să-şi mai vorbească de rău ţara când sunt în străinătate, fiindcă reprezinţi România chiar dacă ai o altă cetăţenie (a auzit România ponegrită de români chiar în spitalul în care lucrează, a reacţionat şi a fost răsplătită cu aplauzele americanilor).

Daniel Lucescu Automobilist in Phoenix
Aceasta a fost a doua etapa a imigrarii mele spre vest si ultima pentru ca daca mai merg spre vest ajung inapoi de unde am plecat. Am trait cel putin o experienta similara in timpul celor doua etape de imigrare. In Bistrita dupa „oleaca” de conversatie cu o persoana necunoscuta , eram confruntat cu intrebarea: „De unde esti?”. Desi nu vorbesc „moldoveneste” sau romaneste cu accent de prin nordul Moldovei, acel ”oleaca„ ma dadea de gol.
Engleza cu accent de „accent” de care ma folosesc in comunicarea mea cu concetatenii mei americani „americani” ma confrunta cu aceeasi intrebare „Where are you from?”. Si eu le raspund bineteles in limba engleza , ca sunt din Phoenix. Este adevarat dar trebuie sa-i lamuresc totusi de unde sunt dupa repetarea intrebarii cu o alta mimica a fetei lor. Din Romania ,le raspund, dupa care cu o fata luminoasa imi spun, binenteles cu accent, „Ooo ! Nadia Comaneci !” si unii, mai putini au auzit si de ”Ceausescu”.

Sambata 24 octombrie 2009, Bistritenii din Phoenix Arizona s-au intalnit al treilea an consecutiv intr-unul din parcurile orasului Phoenix. Fotografiile sunt instantanee de la acesta intalnire. Am impartit fotografiile facute cu aceasta ocazie in trei grupe dupa numarul generatiilor prezente. Ii rog,binenteles daca doresc, pe cei care isi recunosc copii sau nepotii sa precizeze printr-un comentariu numele copilului si al parintilor sau/si bunicilor.
Initiatorul si organizatorul acestor intalniri a fost Aurel Oniga.
PS.Va urma publicarea fotografiilor cu unii dintre participanti din generatia a doua si genratia mai veche.
