  • Very good talk. And delivery made it entertaining and interesting. I don't know about his point on WW2 though, there were a whole bunch of jew civs that didn't have much time left because of the efficient organization of their extermination. I like that quote about war being an indiscriminate means of mass killing with an uncertain ends (no matter intent, somewhere along those lines, cannot remember it exactly).

  • What liberals don't understand is that the very nature of man is to make war... Is that a good thing? Does that make it moral or right? One only has to look to Darwin's Origin of the Species and the cold reality that survival of the fittest really is the best guide to explain why war is horrible. Liberals can dream about utopia and try to change human nature, great knock yourselves out...ya got every plant and animals pushing back at ya. It's often humorous to watch these folks get up and lectur More..

  • Smedly Butler stated in his book "The War Racket", that we had never attacked another country outside ofour own since 1812. since about 1896 we have been in a state of meddling in foreign affairs. Read smedly's book. It was written in the 1930's but gives you a great perspective on the connection between being involved in war and robber barons making huge somes of money off of our backs.

  • Progressives conference? A room packed with pissed off, arrogant, narcissistic, assholes! Imagine that.

    We will be seeing fewer of these ego fests as people wise up to all the bullshit these "progressives" are trying to force on the world.
