Introduction to the Rubujo / Enkonduko al la Rubujo

Welcome to the Rubujo (pronounced like Roo-BOO-yoh). 'Rubujo' is an Esperanto word meaning 'garbage can'. For information about and on-line lessons in the international auxiliary language Esperanto, see http://lernu.net.

The Rubujo is a general purpose blog, journal, photographic gallery, etc., belonging to me, Barry Schwartz, also known as 'Bojo' (BOH-yoh), which is an Esperanto word for a dog's bark. Read more about me at http://www.livejournal.com/userinfo.bml?user=chemoelectric. I also have a website called The Crud Factory, at http://crudfactory.com.

Being a LiveJournal blog, the Rubujo serves not only as a blog but also as my portal for reading other blogs and news sources, via the 'Friends' feature. Therefore I have designed the blog's layout mainly for my own benefit, but I think you might like it, too. To get the full effect, you may (optionally!) want to install some free fonts as follows:

* The DejaVu font family (including the experimental 'condensed' fonts), from http://dejavu.sourceforge.net. These are TrueType fonts, and they support Esperanto.

* The TeX Gyre Adventor font family, from http://www.gust.org.pl/projects/e-foundry/tex-gyre/.


Bonvenon al la Rubujo, kiu estas eklektika blogo, taglibro, fotografia galerio ktp, apartenata al mi, Barijo 'Bojo' Ŝvarco.

Vi eble volos viziti mian alian retpaĝaron, 'La Rubejplenigejo', ĉe http://crudfactory.com.

Kiel LiveJournal-a blogo, la Rubujo ne estas nur blogo, al kiu aliaj povas legi miajn skribaĵojn; ĝi ankaŭ estas portalo per kiu mi legas aliajn blogojn kaj novaĵo-fontojn. Ĉi tiun uzadon ebligas la funkcio 'Amikoj'. Pro tio mi desegnis kaj aranĝis la blogon precipe laŭ mia gusto; tamen eble ankaŭ vi ŝatus la aranĝo. Estas tute nedevige, sed por plenigi vian sperton, instali la jenajn senpagajn tiparojn:

* La tipara familio 'DejaVu', ĉe http://dejavu.sourceforge.net, inkluzive de la 'sveltaj' tiparoj (angle: 'condensed'). Tiuj ĉi tiparoj estas 'TrueType'-aj kaj enhavas Esperantajn literojn.

* La tipara familio TeX Gyre Adventor, havebla ĉe http://www.gust.org.pl/projects/e-foundry/tex-gyre/.

Bonan legadon!

Be aware: Jack Abramoff never gave a dime to any Democrat!

This is something that the media are misleading people on, lying to them about, for whatever reasons. Some obviously are lying because they favor the GONSDAP (Grand Old Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei), others perhaps are lying because they must to follow the sick, utterly disgustic journalistic doctrine of 'balance', etc. The ignorant 'news' media cannot adjust themselves to stating the simple fact: the Jack Abramoff story is entirely restricted to the Bushist Arbeiterspartei. There is no Democratic involvement whatsoever. This is so because the Bushist traitors, intending to turn the United States into a one-party, autocratic state, have systematically made Washington lobbying a branch of the Party. It's almost unbelievable, that in 2006 one of the major parties has been attempting to form a single-party state and has become by itself immensely corrupt in the process, but here we are, it's happening, and the media cannot report it.

The 'news' media will report that clients of Jack Abramoff gave money to Democrats, but this is wholly unremarkable. I mean, so what? An Indian tribe being robbed by Jack Abramoff gives money to Democrats who stand up for the tribe's interests? That's called campaign donation, not bribery. That's like if I gave money to the 'Al Franken for Senate' campaign, while the 'Norm Coleman for Senate' was using money from paid assassinations; ABC 'News' would report that the Franken campaign also was receiving money, that it wasn't just the Coleman campaign that was receiving money.
