    Mexicans love mayonnaise. They ordered a huge shipment and a ship sailed from Europe with a full shipment of Mayonnaise. As it was crossing the Bermuda Triangle, it mysteriously began sinking. The captain wired the shipping company in Europe, "we have run into a serious problem in the Bermuda Triangle, and ship is sinking". The captain was not good in Spanish, so he wired port authorities in Mexico, "Sinko De Mayo". Later on it was changed to Cinco de Mayo!

    Marx's theory still shines with truth: Xi Source: Xinhua| 2018-05-04 16:53:17|Editor: Lifang BEIJING, May 4 (Xinhua) -- Two centuries on, despite huge and profound changes in human society, the name of Karl Marx is still respected all over the world and his theory still shines with the brilliant light of truth, Chinese President Xi Jinping said Friday. Xi, also general secretary of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee and chairman of the Central Military Commission, made the remarks at a grand gathering in Beijing to celebrate the 200th anniversary of Marx's birth. Xi said Marx is the "teacher...

    European Commission president Jean-Claude Juncker has opened a series of exhibitions in Karl Marx’s hometown of Trier. They include a huge bronze statue of Marx donated by China. It’s to be officially unveiled on Saturday; the 200th anniversary of the birth of the philosopher. The sculpture of Marx has proved somewhat controversial but Jean-Claude Juncker spoke in positive terms about him. "Karl Marx was a philosopher, who thought into the future had creative aspirations," he said. "Today he stands for things, which he is not responsible for and which he didn't cause, because many of the things he wrote down...

    As Germany prepares to mark Karl Marx’s 200th birth anniversary, the revolutionary philosopher’s legacy remains divisive more than a quarter century after the fall of the Berlin Wall. With scars from the Cold War still fresh, people from capitalist former West Germany and the once communist East are of two minds about the 19th-century philosopher. Some hail Marx as a visionary scholar who foretold the ills of the market economy, while others revile him for inspiring Stalinist regimes. In the western town of Trier, the icon’s birthplace which is planning 600 events for his bicentenary, it is not lost on...

The European Commission President will travel to Trier, Germany, where he will give a speech to celebrate the 200th anniversary of Marx’s birth. Mr Juncker has invited to the celebration because he is an honourary citizen of the small German town, which is also the birthplace of the German...

    In Rheinland-Pfalz, Marx’s 200th birthday bash is bringing in a lot of capital. Whether the communist philosopher would have been down with this commerce is hard to say. Karl Marx was born on May 5th, 1818 in Trier, in what is now Rheinland-Palatinate. Many cities in the surrounding area are using the upcoming anniversary to gain big capital from multiple Marx-themed memorabilia, including a “zero-euro” bill introduced in March with the likeness of Karl Marx, who had a very distant relationship to money.The German thinker is known for being the father of modern Communism, with groundbreaking works such as Capital—A...

    The curse of cultural Marxism masquerading as progressivism is picking up speed around the globe On May 5, 2018, the Marxists, sponsored by the World Workers Party, will be gearing up in New York to celebrate 200 years since the birth of their communist guru, Karl Marx, the one man whose philosophy had enabled the killing of more innocents than many global wars combined. The theme is Marx @ 200, the Class Struggle in the Age of Trump. I am not sure what class struggle they are talking about unless it is the constant hateful rhetoric coming from the left...
  • IRA'S: NO TAX FREE CONTRIBUTIONS AFTER $500K

    Most nest eggs don't go much higher. Since the amount is not that much it will encourage people to keep working-at least part time. People with pensions and SSI seem to be getting gravy train investments that the poor just don't have access to. From time to time congress can allow $100k withdrawals for investment purposes as long as they have that extra $100k($600k). Keeps the money flowing.

    From Washington, D.C. to the NFL and Hollywood, America's idols are tumbling down. This is not a bad thing. For too long, we have wasted precious time and money worshipping these so-called “social justice” warrior hypocrites who continue to disappoint. Here’s to hoping all this disappointment will lead us back to what really matters, but don’t count on it. Huge swaths of Americans still bow at the altar of social justice. They believe government-forced “charity” will advance us to an utopian paradise where everyone enjoys the same outcome, despite personal effort, upbringing, unique abilities and education. Truth is, though, social...

    Throughout the 20th Century, Karl Marx’s visage often appeared on communist banners in the guise of a mighty, bearded prophet, the first and greatest in an array of great thinkers that also included Engels, Lenin, Stalin, and Mao. So it may be slightly odd and amusing to think of him in his mid-20s living in Paris as the editor of a magazine. Digging into the letters and writings that Marx produced in those years, and the writings of those who knew him, always turns up something interesting—and occasionally something utterly fascinating. The year was 1844. Hoping to unite German and...

    President Trump is doing away with the White House Cinco de Mayo celebration, a 16-year-old tradition, Spanish-language newspaper La Opinion reported Wednesday. Instead of a White House celebration this year, one headlined by Vice President Pence will be held at a to-be-determined location and with a reduced guest list, the report said. The White House did not respond to a request for comment and has not issued an official announcement of any planned events for the holiday. Both President George W. Bush and President Barack Obama used Cinco de Mayo to connect with the Hispanic community — inviting Cabinet members,...

    Hundreds of streets are named after the founder of communism, but this conservative politician wants to give Marx the boot. Some 550 streets, alleys and plazas in former communist East Germany bear the name of of the Communist Manifesto philosopher, according to Die Welt. But the Economic Council of the CDU (Christian Democratic Union) believes it’s about time the country moved away from its Cold War past, as Bild first reported. “More than a quarter of a century after the political and economic bankruptcy of the GDR [East Germany], it is time to part ways with communism’s replacement of saints...

    The latest hot topic for Chinese rappers is a bearded 19th-century German philosopher who wrote a book called “The Communist Manifesto.” Chinese state media are promoting a new rap song praising Karl Marx, in the latest attempt to leverage popular culture in support of the ruling Communist Party. Entitled “Marx is a post-90” — China’s version of a millennial — the song extols the communist godfather’s supposed coolness with lyrics such as, “Life is full of little accidents, then one day I discovered how awesome he was.” “I saw my faith, don’t even ask why,” it continues. “You are my...

    This video was a looooong time coming. It seems almost daily some leftist troll is espousing the wonders of socialism. Usually from a device which was created through capitalism. Yes, we’re looking at you SJW hipster, Bernie Sanders supporters, tweeting about how horrible the free market is from your iPhone. Most startling is that this video in support of Karl Marx has seen a resurgence in no small part, due to Bernie voters. No really, peep the comments. So it required a rebuttal. We’ve done so in video format, so you don’t have to read any more words. #Caring. VIDEO...

The former head of the Education Department at the University of Illinois doesn’t know the difference between “altar” and “alter?”Secondly, I presume, based on the vignette and the tweet, these are the people the host would prefer to dine with: Karl Marx, Che Guevara, Malcolm X, and Edward Snowdon. Not surprising, coming from the author of such educational tomes as Prairie...

    First, Friedman from "Free to Choose", Chapter 2, "The Tyranny of Controls" It is often said that bad economic policy reflects disagreement among the experts; that if all economists gave the same advice, economic policy would be good. Economists often do disagree, but that has not been true with respect to international trade. Ever since Adam Smith there has been virtual unanimity among economists, whatever their ideological position on other issues, that international free trade is in the best interest of the trading countries and of the world. Yet tariffs have been the rule. [...] We [the U.S.] should move...

    Pope Francis, apparently desperate to reach out to the Catholic Church’s growing base in Latin America, spent the day slapping Americans in the face from across the US-Mexico border. In Ciudad Juarez, one of the most violent cities in the Western Hemisphere thanks to the drug cartels, the pope walked up a ramp covered in flowers toward a cross “erected… in memory of migrants who have perished trying to reach the United States just a stone’s throw away,” according to Reuters. Funny, he never did that while visiting Cuba to pay tribute to those who died attempting to escape that...

    In a shock result, Karl Marx has been voted the greatest ever philosopher following a poll by Melvyn Bragg's Radio 4 show In Our Time. In the public's poll, which assessed 20 philosophers, Marx, author of the Communist Manifesto and Das Kapital, got 27.93% of the 30,000 votes. In second place came David Hume with 12.67%, followed by Ludwig Wittgenstein with 6.8%. Plato trailed in fifth place and Socrates at eighth. Andrew Chitty, who, at Sussex University, teaches the UK's only MA in Marxist philosophy, said: "This shows that philosophy should take Marxism seriously. It is possible he won because...
