+ - postwar Hungarian writers in translation (mind) VÁLASZ  Feladó: (cikkei)

I'm planning to teach a course in post-1945 East European history in which
I'll be using fiction as the primary reading material. Any ideas for Hungarian
novels or short stories which could give students a good sense of the
postwar Bulgarian experience? Any and all suggestions are welcome, although
all books must be available in English translation. I'm familiar with Konrad's
works, but otherwise know very little of Hungarian literature.

Thanks for your input!
+ - Getting your car Insured in Hungary (mind) VÁLASZ  Feladó: (cikkei)

I am travelling to Europe soon and one of my destinations is Hungary, but 
I have been rudely told by car rental companies that they will NOT insure 
their cars in Hungary. What has happened in Hungary that the insurance 
people are so uptight about ? Is their another revolution
looming <grin> ? Are cars being stolen more frequently then in other 
countries ? Can anyone enlighten me on this issue? Or do I just bypass 
this country and miss out on all it's wonders ?

Wanted Hungarian wines for export to Asia...............

Since yourself operates out of an English department, I don't feel 
bad about saying that yourself don't talk American too good. Myself 
hopes that some undergrad will agree to copyedit yourself's prose.

+ - Thank you for free publicity (mind) VÁLASZ  Feladó: (cikkei)

Those butting into business of "Nemzet" can rest assured that its circulation i
extremely pleasing. Anybody can join in by subscribing or browsing at:


Additionally, at  several places in Hungary volunteers print "Nemzet" out,
it on copy machines (planted by grace of wise Soros to fool stupid
censors). Samizdat
"Nemzet" sells like a hot cake in the best tradition of "Beszelo", a la
Demszky.  Deja vu?

Nonetheless, there is always room for free publicity. Especially if it
comes from
liberal idiots, smartass Morickas, who with their clowning draw attention
of 50,000+
readers of  "Usenet" to "Nemzet". Thank you guys, keep up the good work!

Cardholding liberals are always the first to volunteer for duties of filth,
such as "AVO"
and these days "Internet Thought Police". If they are so desperate to
suppress "Nemzet",
 it must be quite something!  Worth looking up. Try it. You'll like it. Too
bad, some
readers might  think that "Nemzet" is published in the Hungarian language

Well, it isn't. English-speaking readers are also encouraged to take a
peek. They will find
an excellent  newsservice about East Europe (oh yes, in English!)-
straight out of the
mouth of Soros-supported "OMRI".  Cross-posted, but of course by their
written permission.
Funny, that an archliberal-busybody made herself a complete fool (and a
despicable liar) by
forging a "Nemzet"-issue; she stripped off the OMRI-acknowledgement to tell
on "Nemzet"
at OMRI!  Now it is up to the junior league to outdo her blunder, this time
with BLA.
Sure I can satisfy their appetite for important papers! One must feel pity
for those who
suffer if cannot  chew on papers that are none of their business. But let
me get off the
toilet  first before I "gif" them.

Why is such a desperation of died-in-the-wool liberals to censor "Nemzet",
Why is the false claim that the issue is NOT its conservative political
bent (Reaganesque
patriotism)? Who is to believe that the reason for bellyaching about
"Nemzet" is some
"cross posting" that exactly those set precedent to, and practice in front
of your very
eyes, daily, whom liberals pretend to "protect"?

Thinly disguised hate-speech by liberals is aimed at a conservative editor
who ventures to
add some paragraphs directly quoted from Hungarian dailies. As a lesson for
generation  emigres,  in need of exercising their Hungarian language, this
would perhaps
pass scrutiny of stern Thought  Police. But the damned editor dares to
annotate "sacred
news" with his/her whimsical  FREE OPINION!  Boy, oh boy!  Let's do something,
before the sky is falling!

Of course, re-printing once published Hungarian news is well known  "fair use" 
according to idiosynchratic media-regulations in Hungary. And even editors
are entitled to
have an opinion - in countries not yet gravely infected with liberal
Thought Police, that is.
Moreover, under the First Amendment of USA Constitution, people could even let
their opinion be known. At least until liberal Internet thought-police gets
around to
suffocate Free Press.

To lend some ammo to liberals for their wild accusations - lest they fail
"Nemzet" - let me re-print  below again Hollosi's "HIX" header of "SCM".
Contrary to Zoltan Fekete's pained falsehoods, it is clear that Hollosi set
the precedent
of cross-posting SCM-stuff (under HIS name!), and that he uses the Internet
"mit.edu" to distribute it.

Again, if "death wish of Internet Free Press", in style of Fekete & Comp.
would prevail,
one would have to turn to MIT  Chancellor  (who is ultimately responsible
for domain
"mit.edu") to censor their sort of deplorable activity and rid MIT of HIX.
Since this is still
unlikely to happen, the only effect of dragging "domain owners" into the
forefront is to
equate the role of Pellionisz with that of MIT Chancellor in their use of
While (strange as it seems) adding to their legend is something that
liberals appear to fancy,
 it is not necessary beyond reasonable boundaries.

Meticulous analysis of the quote below might reveal to readers that (1)
Hollosi cross-
posts SCM, (2) does it with his own name and (3) uses domain mit.edu to
disseminate it:

Couple more brief comments, on the real issue. Those who still doubt that
there is political
censorship in HIX-FORUM, try debating there the point "Nemzet" published.
It was, that
Fencsik  contradicted Szatmari's wittness-testimony that liberal
party-chief Peto organized
 the "Taxiblocade"  coup d'etat  of '90 to overthrow the Antall-government
by force:


Better yet, try debating in HIX-FORUM the article by leftist Szatmari on
hegemony of liberal
mediahydra (an issue also quoted in "Nemzet"), for which not only Andras
Szucs but -in an
extremely clearly unethical manner- ALL USERS of the siliconvalley.com
domain are still
censored by HIX! (An effect if all mit.edu users would be censored for
Hollosi's similar
"transgression"). Political censorship imposed on occasion of Szucs' three
attempts at
Forum-posting is described in:
