I swear I read the whole list and didn’t find “useful idiots” anywhere. If it was there and I missed it, I guess we know who the real idiot is.
BTW: I’m usually the nicest guy you’d ever want to call your customer service line. I’m polite, informed, and not all knee-jerky or herky-jerky, or anything, But yesterday… to Comcast, I got a little uncharacteristic and finally asked the girl if there was anyone there with a c-l-u-e.
“What’s a C-L-U-E?”
“Write it down and read it”, I said.
The next operator got the problem fixed right away.
Haha. Argentina’s president “nationalized” a Spanish petrol company. Just today, Bolivia’s president “nationalized” a Spanish electricity company. Bolivia’s president have already “nationalized” a Brazilian petrol company. That’s entretainment, I mean, this is Socialism … Bolivia, Argentina, Paraguay , Venezuela … OH, MY G*D!!!

Just watched the Indy Car race from down your way.
Yeah S.Amer. commies are the most fun to watch. I chalk that up to an over-reaction to the overabundance of over-the-top fascist uniforms in the past. Maybe it’s just a long-simmering Espana/Portugal thing. Dunno, never been there.

MCPO, 20 million? I think that is the lower estimate of his body count.
Here is my list of the 3 greatest mass murderers of the 20th Century:
3: Hitler with maybe 10 to 12 millions including the 5 to 6 million Jews, perhaps 3 million POWs, 1.5 million Poles and another million gypsies, gays and other mental, physical and political “defectives” .
2: Stalin with between 20 and 30 millions
1: Mao with between 30 to over 50 millions
These counts include executions, death in camps and forced migrations and starvation from man made famines.
Given that more people were killed by governments than in war in the 20th Century, I have a hard time understanding why the youths want government to be in charge of EVERYTHING!
Che’s motto should be “I was killing just as fast as I could and all I got was this lousy t-shirt!”
Today was a road day for me. Get in the truck and go out to other stations for upgrades and onsite instruction.. I thought about all the mayhem that would be happening and decide to prepare……… I took a sack lunch.
Needless to say I didn’t see a damn one “OWS” protestor. And twice I drove across town. Seems everyone was working for a living.
tct (14), yeah, I’d like to eat the rest of your yummy sammich!
DougM, I hate to criticize your list, that you obviously worked so
assiduously on, but I don’t think there’s any ‘Train Robbers’ in
any of your categories or sub-categories of your firstest paragraph or
in your FYA list! ‘Train Robbin’ is an old & honorable American
wild west custom, plus a coupla notorious Brit ‘incidents’.
MOJO (12), I found a most innerestin’ book
on the subject of your comment. It’s a leetle ‘spensive, but after
reading the descriptions & about the many authors with direct
experience of what their writing about, I added it to my long list
of books to buy! Please read the reviews & customer reviews.
I also strongly recommend this book to all the SondraKistanians.
