Oh, wait. I misunderstood you. Sorry, I thought you were a troll and thoughtlessly shot from the hip. I've asked that my post be removed.

Merry Christmas and welcome to FReerepublic.
The marxists invade and detract from all good things. It's their MO.

Wikipedia is a lost cause. When I was on there, quite a few contributors were engaged in an effort to put something about Bush and Iraq in articles that didn't have the slightest connection. There were Bush/Iraq comments stuck in articles about people who have been dead 20 years and that caused no fuss.
If you have a conservative bias in an article, its removed on the spot. If you have a liberal bias in an article, then it has to be discussed, and debated, and argued about, and fought over for a year and half.
Many of the contributors want a neutral encyclopedia, but their policies are taken advantage of by the leftist partisans.
When you get into conflict, it is not about who has the logical argument, its about who is the most persistent and who yelps the loudest for the longest. Liberals have us beat from the start in situations where lengthy yelping is the determinant and logic is not.

My rants have had to do with the pro-AKC bias among the dog breed entries.

Pinochet was a fascist, pure and simple, who used summary executions to try to maintain law and order in Chile.
I don't care if, because he fought leftists, you like him. He was an indefensible bastard.
Supporting him is sort of like supporting Adolf Hitler because he fought against the Communists.

Hard to be biased against a guy who used rape as a political tool. The agrument you Pinochet groupies use is the same one the Fidelistas use to gloss over his barbarity. Both groups are despicable.

Amateur hour personified. The New York Slimes is often a better source.
