Good News!

It must be Celebrate Fanatical Marxist Executioner Revolutionary Day at my son's school! That's right, this glorious image of "the butcher of La CabaƱa" decorates the wall of my son's high school Spanish class. I just can't wait for Pol Pot day, it should be awesome!

From The Cult of Che (Don't applaud The Motorcycle Diaries) By Paul Berman

Che was a totalitarian. He achieved nothing but disaster. Many of the early leaders of the Cuban Revolution favored a democratic or democratic-socialist direction for the new Cuba. But Che was a mainstay of the hardline pro-Soviet faction, and his faction won. Che presided over the Cuban Revolution's first firing squads. He founded Cuba's "labor camp" system—the system that was eventually employed to incarcerate gays, dissidents, and AIDS victims. To get himself killed, and to get a lot of other people killed, was central to Che's imagination. In the famous essay in which he issued his ringing call for "two, three, many Vietnams," he also spoke about martyrdom and managed to compose a number of chilling phrases: "Hatred as an element of struggle; unbending hatred for the enemy, which pushes a human being beyond his natural limitations, making him into an effective, violent, selective, and cold-blooded killing machine. This is what our soldiers must become …"— and so on. He was killed in Bolivia in 1967, leading a guerrilla movement that had failed to enlist a single Bolivian peasant. And yet he succeeded in inspiring tens of thousands of middle class Latin-Americans to exit the universities and organize guerrilla insurgencies of their own. And these insurgencies likewise accomplished nothing, except to bring about the death of hundreds of thousands, and to set back the cause of Latin-American democracy—a tragedy on the hugest scale. read more

Turns out the Liberal's bleeding heart is all tapped out.

So everyone knows how Republicans/Conservatives are rich, greedy people who only care about themselves and how Democrats/Liberals are the sweet, compassionate ones, right? Well I personally never really bought the whole, republicans are for the rich and liberals are for the poor line, so I decided to do a little research on the matter... Yep, I googled it and here's just one of the many articles that I found that not only showed that Conservatives give more time and money to charity than Liberals do but... That's right, on average Liberals have higher incomes than Conservatives.

-- "Although liberal families' incomes average 6 percent higher than those of conservative families, conservative-headed households give, on average, 30 percent more to charity than the average liberal-headed household ($1,600 per year vs. $1,227"). Read full article here

So in other words, Liberals are great at giving away other peoples money but when it comes to their own... Eh, not so much!

Oh, the sweet smell of irony. Of course, anything must smell sweet next to these guys.

Nikon camera to catch all your tree hugging friends at a protest? $475. Apple Ipad to stream live video of your dirty knit cap friends chanting sayings that have nothing to do with the protest? $595. Soap, shampoo, toothpaste and deodorant to look your best for the news cameras?... Who are we kidding? $0.00. Protesting against the very corporations that you (your parents) bought all your cool gadgets from?... Effing retarded!
