This comrade, Kosta Barjaba, has a PhD in Marxist-Leninist Philosophy since 1989 in Albania, when Communism was still the truest and the purest. He has taken redistribution into his own hands. The collectivist role model!
He is still an adviser of the Party of Comrades in Albania (or what remains of it).
Family faces burglary charges after Dec. 27 arrest
Parents and daughter arrested by Palo Alto police following alleged theft at Nordstrom
Quote:A father, mother and daughter from Albania are facing burglary charges in Palo Alto after allegedly attempting to steal men's clothing and an expensive purse from a department store... The three Barjaba family members are all listed as citizens of Albania, but the daughter has an address in Stanford...

It's weird that the father would call police and report his wife and daughter as "missing".
Maybe a limerick is in order
The family that steals together
Files their appeals together
I don't Enver them
People comment in the article that because the guy has his daughter in Stanford, he is not a cheapjack.
He is rich in Albania, but most likely he is NOT paying for his daughter's studies. American pig imperialist taxpayers are paying. All countries with imperialist designs, including our very own USA, then Russia, Turkey, Italy and many others, issue scholarships on their target countries. Albania is one such target country for many of them because of its strategic position and size. All these scholarships go to big guys like this (big in Albania).
I went to Italy illegally on a boat, like Mexicans here. Legalized my position, worked whatever I had to, then competed 34 times during 3 years to get one PhD student position without scholarship. Strange enough, I did finish my PhD. Not everybody does. Italians are famous for their rigged concorsi, and I made it through. Compliments to me, one tough cookie.
How many asshole Albanians did I see all my way up? Incredibly many. By the thousands, upscale children of Albania went abroad on scholarships not on any merit whatsoever, rather on the merits of their parents to do corruption.
Incredibly many of these guys were on pot, failed studies miserably, repeated classes and so on.
Share. Great inspiration Comrade Frum.
It appears that Comrade Professor Kosta Barjaba is merely engaging in a little 'independent collectivization.' He should be immediately released, along with receiving a letter of apology from the police for violating their multi-cultural policy. After all, Socialism has its own Cultural and Values (such as annexations, forced seizures, and collective bargaining).
I.M. CraptekAs noted elsewhere in The People's Cube archives, the proper term for this act is "Spontaneous Marxism".
I had been under the impression this was knows as "Freelance Socialism".
Does that new Wealth Spread enhance the flavor of our beets? My sister gave me some pointers about my cooking and maybe I can return the favor.
Because I like echoes.
John FrumI was thinking... Isn't diversity too limiting? Same for triversity. I would advocate for multiversity.
Dear Comrade John,
Of course, the Proletariat would not tolerate a 'multiversity.' Since universities are devoted to thought, it almost goes without saying that multiple opinions and thoughts would be counter-revolutionary, since some thoughts would be wrong and yet permitted to stand.
We should devote ourselves to one line of thinking, based on the Truth. There cannot be opinions about the Truth, because the Truth is not subject to questioning once it is established. To do so would be to throw away facts. No, Comrades, we should have UNIversities, the 'uni-' standing for UNITED and UNION. The '-vers-' being the UNIVERSAL, since Socialist Truths are truths for all humanity.
Our universities must instill the Truth of Socialism in all students, and so change then entire world, propelling the West towards the unavoidable path of Communism. We must have singularity of thought and purpose, guided by the Truth as defined by the Party. If you think about it, isn't that what our universities are already doing?
As they say, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it." Or, "If it ain't broke, don't fill out a Work Request Form (unless you just want to hold a place in the queue just in case it breaks later)."
The capitalist pigs should be thankful that THEY weren't seized, price tagged, put up in a store window, and displayed like their merchandise!
