well it's just I keep hearing some conservative refer to her and Helen as communists. I was wondering what the logic is for that. I was looking at your posts and you refered to democracy now to communism now. My mother listens to her alot. I never heard her mention anything marxist or whatever. I like Sean hannity and Oriley factor better.

I don't know how your teacher can ask for a term paper on the fall of Communism if you never had any instruction on what Communism IS. I say 'is' because there are still places (God help them) where Communism exists today. Look at N. Korea, Cuba, Mainland China, the place now called Russia which was formerly the Soviet Union...then ask yourself if you think those are good places to live or good examples of government. They are all poor, struggling, unstable, chaotic and weak countries. When you look at the basic domination of all aspects of human life in those countries, then you will have your answers. Communism is a dead letter, it cannot even be successfully exported outside its place of origin and its place of origin, (Russia), will spend the next 30 odd years recovering from its extravagant and foolist experiemnt with 'Communism".

DAMN! I fell for it again. I bet you are that troll from the Biker Bar that likes to send us down rabbit trails with a dishonest request.

Im not asking for you guys to do my work for me, Im asking you to help me so I can do it!

First, go do your background work and then come back for some meaningful discussion on the subjects.

John,

Please do your own homework. This is the point of a school assignment.

ten pages is rather anemic for a senior turn paper, isn't it? Seems to me like this should be a ver series prpject with a hugh impact on the poor diarama-suffering kid's grade. We should all chip in and send him some cheese and hope the accompanying moose gives him what he needs. Unless his sister is in the shower washing off all the bite marks.

I think I just about covered all the FR classics here, and now we have some new ones, like "turn paper", and my new fave "diarama":-)

this is rich!

If your first essay for me were of the quality of your post here, I'd advise you to drop my class and take it at Houston Community College, where standards are notoriouxly lax.

HCC may even be too tough. The University of Pittsburgh is probably more appropriate.

What's a "turn paper"?

It's misspelled... I think he means a "tern paper":

Not if you fill it with 9 1/2 pages of pictures.

It was on Cspan, they said helen was being unamerican for complaining about the loss of liberties after 9/11. I dont understand how that is communist? I thought it was the exact opposite? I think their just going after her for having opposing viewpoints. Just like how you guys keep getting called racists sexists and bigot homophobes like that one blond lady who got fired from MSNBC and who is always shouting off funny stuff. I like her, whats her name again?

Maybe you have some stuff on Mcarthyism, the berlin air drop or the Cuban missile crisis?

McCarthyism is completely irrelevant to your account of the collapse of the Soviet Union. It IS relevant to a discussion of the the inroads the Soviets were trying to make in influencing American politics and culture (government, protest, and indoctrinating arts). The KGB files seen after the fall of the USSR bear this out.

And for all of the talk that your teacher probably gave you that Henry Miller's "The Crucible" was about "McCarthyism", Senator McCarthy was not the catalyst for Mr. Miller to write the play (he already saw these hearings before Mr. McCarthy was involved).

The Cuban Missile Crisis and the Bay of Pigs also have no real significance to a 10-20 page paper on the fall of the USSR. There were also other near battles in WWIII (aka the Cold War) but some of them are only coming to light 20+ years later.

This sums up the best that I have read to date describing what communism is.

Reason it is the best because it is a letter from a father to his children describing what is a "religion", and the communists "gods" flopped "big time".

Okay, I don't want to insult your spelling or grammar, but sweetheart...spellcheck is your friend. Your professor will knock off a lot of points just on that issue.

Now regarding your term paper, I would start with Google. First you need to know the origins of communism. Always check and make sure the site is factual and not personal opinion. Then you need to trace how communism spread, and what happened when it engulfed each particular country.

Statistics are good. Show before and after stats about mortality, production, and other important facts. End your term paper with a summary of what happens when totalitarianism goes bad. Also read Alexander Solzhenitsyn's "Gulag Archepelago". Your professor will be impressed....or scared to death ;-) Good luck!

Still, Im getting alot of good stuff here. I think I'll print this stuff out and take it home after this. I like you guys! You like comedians and everything! I think I should come here more often and post stuff about conservatism.

Now could someone tell me who the two hot chicks you guys go one about are? I forget.

The clock is ticking if found Free Republic you can do a google search starting with authors Daniel Pipes and Robert Conquest who have written definitive books on the collapse of communism at least in Europe.
