Latin conversation in the movie Tombstone | Latin D

Latin conversation in the movie Tombstone | Latin D

Doc : In vino veritas.
Ringo : Age quod agis.
Doc : Credat Judaeus Apella, non ego.
Ringo : Juventus stultorum magister.
Doc : In pace requiescat!

Doc : In wine there is truth.

Doc Holiday is excusing his own behavior here, and further insulting Johnny Ringo by saying that he is drunk, and saying truthful things he would otherwise not reveal. He had previously said he hated Johnny Ringo for being similar to himself.

Ringo : Do what you do / Watch what you do.

This is one of the most interesting lines because it means more than just watch what you do. The line can be interpreted as be careful, or people do what they do (saying that Doc Holiday is drunk because he is a drunkard), and it can also mean something along the lines of do what you do best, which would be gunfight since Ringo had apparently heard of Holiday's skill. It is a challenge and an insult combined into one.

Doc : Tell it to someone else, not I.

This line is dismissive. Doc Holiday is conveying the fact that he doesn't care what Johnny Ringo is saying and that he doesn't care what his advice is.

A common Latin saying meaning "Let the Jew Apella believe it; not I". The phrase means, roughly, tell it to someone else, not me.

The reference is taken from the work Satires (book one, satire five) by ancient poet Horace. It is derived from a scene where people try to convince travellers of miracles happening at their shrines. The phrase is uttered to convey the disbelief and that they should tell their stories to someone else.

Ringo : Youth is the teacher of fools.

When Ringo taps his pistol he says this, which conveys the idea that Doc Holiday is inexperienced (youthfull) and ignorant of the danger he is getting himself into.

"Juventus stultorum magister" is a common Latin aphorism, or phrase that has many implied and implicit meanings. The sentance translates to "youth is the teacher of fools".

Juventus isn't really a latin word, they didn't use the letter 'J' so it is really Iuventus, which is in the nominative case (subject of the sentence), and it means youth or adolescence.

Stultorum is a latin derivation of the word stultus, stulti which means fool. The "orum" ending places it in the genative case, used (most frequently) to show possesion. Hence of fools.

Magister literally means teacher or schoolmaster. It is in the Nominative case as well.

There is an implied transitive verb such as "is" which would require the nominative case on both sides of the verb. Hence we have: "Youth is the teacher of fools".

Doc : Rest in peace!

To end the conversation Doc Holiday throws the previous warning back into Ringo's face. Doc tells him to rest in peace, or to die, because Ringo is unaware of the danger that Doc presents.

The conversation, at first, does not seem to flow well, but there are several hidden meanings and ideas being passed back and forth. The use of these Latin phrases carries a lot of symbolism and meaning in the way they were used here. Now you know what the phrases translate, so go watch it again, this time with the knowledge of what they say so you can find the hidden implications of their conversation.

donga.com[English donga]: The color of land in the two Koreas also shows the scars of the divided nation. Maplecroft, a U.K.-based risk consulting company, announced that deforestation in North Korea was the third worst in the world after Nigeria and Indonesia. By contrast, the U.N. rated South Korea’s forestation as the only successful case after World War II. Park Jong-hwa, a professor of environmental studies at Seoul National University, said that judging from NASA`s satellite images, 13,878 square kilometers or 11.3 percent of North Korean territory comprised deforested mountains. In seasons when all of South Korea is green with foliage, the North`s land in satellite images are spotted with brown dirt land. The Korea Forest Service of South Korea estimates that reforesting North Korea will require 4.9 billion trees.

Washington area homes fly off the listings fast - The Washington Post

Washington area homes fly off the listings fast - The Washington Post: Washington’s market has traditionally been far more robust than most of the rest of the country, thanks to the concentration of government and military jobs. The region’s stable economy continues to attract people looking for work, economists say. Even the recent budget cuts from the federal sequester have not significantly affected the local labor market. And Washington’s expensive rents are motivating some people to become first-time home buyers, experts say.

The compact wouldn’t go into effect until enough states, with enough electoral votes to decisively win the presidential election, signed on–the magic number being 270. And if that happened? No more red states or blue states, just states throwing their electoral votes to the national winner.

A “Pagan” Asks Buddha | 101 Zen Stories

A “Pagan” Asks Buddha | 101 Zen Stories:

A “pagan” asked Buddha, “With words, with silence, will you tell me (the Way)?” Buddha silently kept meditating. The “pagan” bowed and thanked the Buddha, saying, “With the compassion you have cleared away the clouds of my mind and have made me enter into the awakening.” After he left, Ananda asked the Buddha what he had attained. The Buddha said, “A good horse runs even a shadow of the whip.”

Mumon’s Comment:

Ananda was Buddha’s disciple but his understanding was not like that pagan. Now tell me, “How afar are the disciple and the non-disciple?”

Treading on the sharp edge of a sword,
Running over jagged ice.
Not climbing on the ladder,
Letting your hands off the cliff.

Trevor Loudon's New Zeal Blog » Obama’s Misleading Obamacare Claims

Except that it isn’t. As Accuracy in Media has repeatedly demonstrated, in reality, Obamacare instead causes health care premiums to skyrocket—even in the much-touted California market. According to Avik Roy of Forbes, however, Obamacare will increase individual health insurance premiums [in California] by 64 to 146% in one year.”
For New York State it is a different story. That’s because a series of “reforms” made there in the 1990s which over-regulated health care, got rid of preexisting conditions, and mandated that insurance companies charge the same regardless of age, according to Roy. “New York premiums have nowhere to go but down,” charges Roy in his latest article for Forbes. As he previously pointed out, when liberals championed the less-than-expected rate increases in California, this was an “apples to oranges” comparison.
“The real news is that New York ruined its individual insurance market two decades ago by imposing the same regulations that ObamaCare is about to impose on every other state,” argued The Wall Street Journal on July 23. “If the Empire State’s premiums do now fall, it will be because the Affordable Care Act partially deregulates New York insurance.” Perhaps someone should have clued President Obama into this simple fact.
“But New York, today, is in worse shape than Washington, and far worse shape than California,” writes Roy in his incisive column. “In 2010, according to the Kaiser Family Foundation, the average premium in the New York individual market was $357 a month.”

NHL players to compete in 2014 Olympics | Hockey | The Seattle Times

NHL players to compete in 2014 Olympics | Hockey | The Seattle Times: After weeks of tough negotiations, the NHL and its players reached a deal with the International Ice Hockey Federation on Friday to put the season on hold again so some of the game’s biggest stars can compete next year in the Sochi Olympics in Russia.

Putting a stop to another season one year after a damaging lockout created a shortened, 48-game campaign was hardly an optimal plan for the NHL. But an agreement was made to allow the top players to take part in the Olympics for the fifth straight time.

“Our outstanding athletes take tremendous pride in representing their homelands on the global stage,” NHL commissioner Gary Bettman said in a joint announcement with the players’ association.

NHL players will be available to the 12 national teams that are in the Olympic tournament from Feb. 12 to Feb. 23. More than 120 NHL players are expected to compete in Sochi while the league takes a break from Feb. 9 to Feb. 26.

How could that be phony?' | The Daily Caller: President Obama has never revealed what, if anything, he was doing while workers at the Benghazi embassy were urgently requesting support, nor has the administration explained why no forces were sent to protect the embassy. The administration also denied the attack was a terrorist incident, claiming it was a spontaneous protest against an obscure YouTube trailer for a film that may or may not exist.

“I don’t believe him anymore,” Smith said. “He’s wrong. My son is dead. How could that be phony?”

Most Outrageous Government Waste : The Freeman : Foundation for Economic Education


Without authorization, for instance, the feds spent $19.6 million annually on the International Fund for Ireland. Sounds like a noble cause, but the money went for projects like pony-trekking centers and golf videos.
Congressional budget-cutters spared the $440,000 spent annually to have attendants push buttons on the fully automated Capitol Hill elevators used by Representatives and Senators.
Last year, the National Endowment for the Humanities spent $4.2 million to conduct a nebulous “National Conversation on Pluralism and Identity.” Obviously, talk radio wasn’t considered good enough.
The Pentagon and Central Intelligence Agency channeled some $11 million to psychics who might provide special insights about various foreign threats. This was the disappointing “Stargate” program.
The Department of Education spent $34 million supposedly helping Americans become better shoppers and homemakers. Wasn’t it about time?
The federal government proposed spending $14 million for a new Army Museum, although there already were 47 Army Museums around the country. We helped stop that idea.
Dubious government spending schemes abound since bureaucrats play with other people’s money. For example, the National Institutes of Mental Health (NIMH) spent $70,029 to see if the degu, a diurnal South American rodent, can help us better understand jet lag . . . they spent $77,826 to study “Coping with Change in Czechoslovakia” . . . $100,271 to see if volunteering is good for older people . . . $124,910 to reduce “School Phobia” in children . . . $161,913 to study “Israeli reactions to SCUD Attacks during the Gulf War” . . . and $187,042 to study the quality of life in Hawaii.

The Coming Depression: Food Stamp Nation: What a Modern Day Bread Line Looks Like (Infographic)

The Coming Depression: Food Stamp Nation: What a Modern Day Bread Line Looks Like (Infographic): With digital technology being used for all manner of government distributions, it’s difficult to overtly distinguish between the severity of the Great Depression of the 1930′s and today’s economic crisis.

But just because we don’t see thousands of hungry people lined up for hours at a time at their local soup kitchen today doesn’t mean the lines don’t exist.

    Today bread lines have been removed with the help of technology; EBT cards are filled with Government money for Food Stamp participants to purchase food at local retailers.

    If all EBT recipients shopped at only Walmart Super Centers for ALL their SNAP benefits, then this is how the Bread Line would look each month– 14,588 people.

    There are 3051 Walmart Super Centers in USA and 44,510,598 participants in SNAP (2011), making the average SNAP line at each Walmart at 14,588 people.

    The Modern Era’s Bread Lines are not visible because the business is handled discreetly through EBT Cards

The line at a single Walmart, if we include both adults and children receiving SNAP benefits, would be over 7 miles long! Read more....

Scientists discover what’s killing the bees and it’s worse than you thought – Quartz

Scientists discover what’s killing the bees and it’s worse than you thought – Quartz: When researchers collected pollen from hives on the east coast pollinating cranberry, watermelon and other crops and fed it to healthy bees, those bees showed a significant decline in their ability to resist infection by a parasite called Nosema ceranae. The parasite has been implicated in Colony Collapse Disorder though scientists took pains to point out that their findings do not directly link the pesticides to CCD. The pollen was contaminated on average with nine different pesticides and fungicides though scientists discovered 21 agricultural chemicals in one sample. Scientists identified eight ag chemicals associated with increased risk of infection by the parasite.

Obama Accuses GOP of Fabricating 'Phony Scandals' to Thwart Economic Plan | Independent Journal Review: “Phony scandals.” This is the revealing line that shows how serious the president is about:

The IRS admittedly targeting civic organizations and suppressing their speech.
The known gunwalking of ‘assault rifles’ by the U.S. government under Operation Fast & Furious — leading to the death of hundreds of Mexicans and border patrol agent Brian Terry. The D.O.J. under Holder refused to turn over volumes of documents — the kind of “transparency” that leads to the ongoing investigations we’re seeing.
The Department of Justice phone-tracking the AP and Fox News — even sicking 100-year-old espionage laws on reporter James Rosen for doing his job.
The National Security Agency gathering whatever data it wants on all Americans without a warrant.
The confessed lack of any military aid sent to Benghazi during an 8-hour terrorist siege, leading to the diplomatic compound’s overrun, two Navy Seals attached to the CIA trying to singlehandedly rescue our diplomats after being told to stand down, and without any back-up, left to fight dozens of terrorists and die by mortar fire, and the purported rape and murder of Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens.

Sharia Law in Lebanon: Muslim who honor-beat his wife to death released - Atlas Shrugs

Sharia Law in Lebanon: Muslim who honor-beat his wife to death released - Atlas Shrugs: Honor violence, honor murder is not just an Islamic tradition, it's Islamic law.

A manual of Islamic law certified as a reliable guide to Sunni orthodoxy by Al-Azhar University, the most respected authority in Sunni Islam, says that "retaliation is obligatory against anyone who kills a human being purely intentionally and without right." However, "not subject to retaliation" is "a father or mother (or their fathers or mothers) for killing their offspring, or offspring's offspring." ('Umdat al-Salik o1.1-2). In other words, someone who kills his child incurs no legal penalty under Islamic law.

Coolidge and Lao Tze—Two Sides of the Same Libertarian Coin:

”Every dollar that we prudently save means that their life will be so much the more abundant. Economy is idealism in its most practical form. ”—Calvin Coolidge

Coolidge and Lao Tze—Two Sides of the Same Libertarian Coin

Republican President Calvin Coolidge does not get a lot of press in history books, but he deserves more praise than most modern Presidents, even the celebrated Abraham Lincoln.

Consistent with the principles of modern conservatism, Coolidge adopted a laissez-faire attitude to governance when he took office after the death of President Warren G. Harding.

He cut spending, cut taxes, and cut the government out of most decision-making. He appointed government officials who openly despised federal agencies, so much so that they did nothing. Businesses were allowed to profit or fail without government intervention, and the United States enjoyed a roaring economic recovery.

Modern (liberal) historians will argue that Coolidge’s inaction caused the Stock Market Crash of 1929, followed by the fifteen-year Great Depression. In fact, the rules of the free market, unfettered and fully enforced, would have expedited the much-needed market correction. President Hoover and Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s interventionist policies prolonged a recession into a depression.

Pol Pot became leader of Cambodia on April 17, 1975, and his rule was a dictatorship.[4] During his time in power he imposed agrarian socialism, forcing urban dwellers to relocate to the countryside to work in collective farms and forced labor projects. The combined effects of executions, forced labor, malnutrition, and poor medical care caused the deaths of approximately 25 percent of the Cambodian population.

Obama says he wants to grow the economy "from the middle out.": Obama says he wants to grow the economy "from the middle out."

Obama is killing the economy, from the top down, bottom up, and middle in and out. He has the worst economic record in modern American history, and his big-government gluttony is destroying the next generation's future. Obama says "trickle down" does not work, yet he practices trickle down government with endless social engineering and lifestyle calibrations. And he says that "you're on your own economics" needs to be replaced with "we're in this together" economics. Oh really? Who is using the EPA to shutdown coal mines and hydro-electric plants; who is obstructing the XL oil pipeline; who is destroying commercial fishing; who is using Obamacare to destroy full-time jobs and health care plans; etc., etc.? If we are "in this together" what is this - Obama's economic Titanic?
