  • 70 years on, little known about the Wilhelm Gustloff sinking (deadliest ever shipwreck anniversary)

    02/01/2015 2:57:53 AM PST · by Paid_Russian_Troll · 121 replies
    Over 9,000 people died in the Baltic Sea on January 30, 1945, in an attempt to evade the Red Army. The Wilhelm Gustloff was the largest shipwreck in history, but little is known about the catastrophe seven decades on. At around 9 p.m. on January 30, 1945, Adolf Hitler was speaking to the German people. In the packed dining hall of the luxury liner "Wilhelm Gustloff," as in most of the rest of the country, a radio was broadcasting Hitler's address, but the thousands of refugees from Pomerania and East and West Prussia who had struggled onto the ship weren't...

  • Why Do Hawks Want to Antagonize Russia?

    The American Conservative ^ | May 24, 2013 | Daniel Larison
    The U.S. is fortunate that Russia is not intent on undermining our interests, which makes it a little odd that so many American hawks insist that this is so and sometimes seem eager to make it so. Consider Syria. Syria hawks see Russian opposition to Western and Arab intervention in the country as proof of Russian antagonism to America, but Russia is at most half-heartedly defending the status quo and continuing its formal policy of objecting to outside interference in other states’ internal affairs. It has committed itself to nothing except occasionally vetoing a resolution at the U.N., and if...

    Al-Shabaab, the Somali branch of al Qaeda, ousted American jihadi Abu Mansour al-Amriki from the group after he posted online video messages contrary to the terrorist organization's teachings, CNN reported. Al-Amriki, who was born Omar Hammami in a suburb of Mobile, Alabama, was, for a period of time, a key recruiter for the group, attracting Americans of Somali heritage to the African country to fight for the terrorist group. In March, however, al-Amriki posted a video saying he felt like he was at risk. "I feel that my life may be endangered by Harakat Shabaab al-Mujahideen due to some differences...

John Roco also argues of Newt Gingrich's attack ability at debates, whether South Carolina, Florida or future, actually becomes an extreme deficit of one who would want to be leader of our nation, needing to 'contain' outbursts and expressions of ego empowerment.

  • Why do you perceive Communism to be evil (Mice on the Menu for Christmas- Enjoy Kitties)

    12/11/2011 5:35:03 PM PST · by NeinNeinNein · 237 replies
    OK, this is not a flame thread. I'm genuinely curious why conservatives think Communism is so evil. I am a Communist. I am also a God-fearing Christian, a tax-paying and loyal American, and a generally nice guy. Communism was perverted by third world despots and was never implemented fully in its true form. Communism is about cooperation and good will. And it's important to note that economic success and cooperation are not mutally exclusive. In fact, I would argue greater cooperation among individuals leads to more prosperity and more overall happiness.

You cannot even step foot on the property of the Private Reserve. You can call the human relations department at the Federal Reserve and they will...

I've labored over my position on this topic for some time and I believe the idea is sound and the need is present what is lacking is the desire to meet the challenge. Having healthcare may have been a luxury in years past but it's an absolute necessity today. Our environment has grown so toxic that more and more people are requiring medical care at much...

    <p>On November 7th Americans will go to the polls to vote in what will probably be the most important mid-term elections ever held in our country. Therefore, I write this article as an appeal to moderate and conservative voters with consciences, whose values I believe now approximate those of the Democratic Party much more than those of the Republican Party. That fact may not be evident to most Americans, since the wealthy and powerful corporations that have gained monopoly control of our national news media over the past several years, and who have showered the Republican Party with uncountable millions of dollars, have worked to conceal the fact that the Republican Party has drifted so far to the right that it is now totally out of touch with the values of ordinary Americans. Indeed, those corporations, who control our voting machines, our news media, and many of our politicians, have gained so much power that even the Democratic Party leadership has drifted to the right of most Americans. Yes, there are rare exceptions of prominent journalists, such as Keith Olberman, who have had the courage to tell it like it is. And now the corruption of the Republican Party has become so great and obvious that even our corporate controlled news media can no longer keep silent about it any longer. But still the extent of the anti-people nature of the agenda of the Republican Party is far from obvious to most Americans.</p>
  • Its time to vote straigh Democratic ticket [Zot!]

    I can say without an iota of hesitation or regret that I will cast a ballot for a Democrat for only the third time in my 26 years of voting. The only Democrats I ever voted for were Ann Richards for governor on TX against that quack Clayton Williams and for Lloyd Bentsen for Senator from TX. Due to my total disgust with the way the Federal and the state governments have conducted themselves and how they have failed to act in the interest of this country, I will proudly vote a straight Democrat ticket this year and as a...

    Millions of anchovies — a protected species in Europe — have died in northern Spain after an unexplained mass beaching, officials said Friday. The fish, all juveniles, were found stranded along large stretches of Colunga beach, 35 miles east of the port city of Gijon, a normally pristine seaside landscape in the verdant province of Asturias. "More than three tons have been found so far, and our main — untested — hypothesis at the moment is that they tried to flee from predators and accidentally beached," said Luis Laria, chief coordinator of a marine protection unit working with the government....
  • Why I am not voting Republican this fall [because I'm a retread zotted troll]

    A friend of mine recently was surprised when I told him that I am not voting Republican this fall. "You are one of the most conservative people I know," he said. "Exactly," I said, "and that is precisely why I am not voting Republican." For me, illegal immigration has been the final straw. And the GOP's recent decision to pull funding from Randy Graf's campaign shows the writing on the wall: CONSERVATIVES, YOU ARE NOT WELCOME IN THE GOP. Of course, the GOP will take conservatives' votes and money, but if a real conservative runs for office, he almost certainly...

    He said his grandfather's incarceration by the Germans had a profound effect on his mother; that because it was a painful memory, it was almost never discussed. "Some may find it odd that I have not probed deeply into the details of my family history, but it's a fact," Allen said in his statement. Speaking with The Times-Dispatch, Allen said the disclosure is "just an interesting nuance to my background." He added, "I still had a ham sandwich for lunch. And my mother made great pork chops."
  • Dixie Chicks Not Even a Little Fascist! (Soprano mod pushes a buttton)

    To those who think of the Dixie Chicks as "fascists" for putting down the ignorant fool whose "election" fell off a truck in true "Sopranos" fashion, I submit a quote from Huey Long in 1933: "Fascism WILL come to America, but perhaps under another name. It'll be called anti-fascism." If you voted for this guy, you're part of the problem. Look in the mirror and consider yourself responsible for the hatred we've rightfully engendered all over the world. Better yet, get out your passport (if you even have one!) and see for yourself!
