<quoted text>Well, the nazis did hate pretty much everyone except the conservative.

it's been the standard attack avenue of right ring idiots to showcase their lack of knowledge about America... a country whose Constitution they have been trying to change.
Was Von Staffenberg and the REAL opposition to the nazis socialists? WHat about the White Rose student movement?

Facts are very simple, the leftists in Germany at that entire period (before the war of course) were just as oppressive as the nazis and their takeover would probably have been the Sovjet state model. Also, who staged coups after WW1 and BEFORE the nazis. It wasn't "conservatives"...

The fact that Von Papen was conservative doesn't make a difference. At that time the nazis were not in power and later on he was politically castrated and the conservatives were quiet. After all, they had seen what the nazis had done to socialists already.

So, yes, the nazis were a typical leftist model. Their SA were essentially unemployed people of mostly worker background. They could have joined the communists. As a matter of fact, many prominent nazis had leftist background before 1932...


Sorry, I didn't mean to argue with you. I never do with liberals, because you will NEVER change your mind and neither will I (based upon what YOU say). It is more fruitful to inform like-minded than fight stalemates..

Sad for Custer.
Of the twelve troops of the Seventh Cavalry, Custer led five that hot Sunday into eternity and infamy at the battle of the Little Big Horn, and of his part of the regiment only one living thing escaped the deadly skill of the Sioux warriors.
SKILL is the absolute perfect description here. Everybody seem hung up on the number superiority, but fact is that had the sioux's not managed to split the 7th, they would likely have lost. In close combat one on one, they were about equal, but at semi-close distance as Big Horn soon became there was no way Custer could have made it differently. All indicates that he had timed upon reunification of the Regiment.

Also, has anyone studied the Nez Perez escape from the feds from Southern Idaho towards Canada. The guy was a genius and he even had studied Napoleon.

Indians were experts in capitalizing on ignorant vanity and arrogance in the battles they won. Geronimo would never have been caught if he hadn't turned himself in. And what did they do to him? Disarmed, dispossessed in reservation for rest of his life. They knew fort sure how to fight asymmetrical warfare. Hopefully the same battle sites won't be "needed" again towards the same enemy...

Corzine is a piece of work, but besides the obvious criminal activity he may have to answer to, I do not see much difference between him and Chris Christie. IMHO, they are both pompous egos that are wayyyyyyy above their heads and just another globalist tool. I don't even honestly have too much against Obama. He is just a face, a front and would things have been better with a Democrat President looking like an "Aryan master piece" sculpture made in Berlin in 1941? Don't be fooled for a second. Even him and Holder annoying everybody with the hate whitey stuff is just a dressing.

Alex Jones said it like this once. Liberals give you 30 pain killers and then slit your throat. Conservatives just kill you. No pain killers.(At least that is cheaper for the tax payers).

Me and my wife had a longer discussion today about this (just finished). We got two kids and otherwise have had to think this looong over. If it should come to confrontations with the feds starting to kill and shoot tens of thousands or more, we will both join any resistance and be taking care of all the GSW'S. Just working without all the federal paperwork would be enough incentive to take up the trade again.

(Last time I took care of one was December 31st of last year. I have taken care of hundreds of them and trust me, there are MANY of us that would join in here. One thing is for sure. The feds can only park so many of THEIR wounded at the University hospitals as probably half or more of the trauma surgeons have gone as well.

This will be a total conflict and I think my best role would be to preserve lives (That the feds will try to take) and if they kill me for that, there is nothing I can do.....

(Reuters)- An Arctic air mass sent temperatures plunging across California, forcing the 17-hour closure of a key interstate highway through the mountains north of Los Angeles and threatening citrus crops in the state's vast central valleys, authorities said on Friday.

Temperatures throughout the state fell by as much as 20 degrees Fahrenheit (11 degrees Celsius) below normal, allowing snow to accumulate at elevations as low as 1,500 feet, the National Weather Service reported.

Although no further snow was expected to fall over the weekend, temperatures were expected to continue to drop on Saturday before gradually warming into next week, the weather service said.

About 4 inches of snow fell on Thursday on a winding stretch of the Interstate 5 known as the Grapevine, which passes through mountains between Los Angeles and Bakersfield, prompting authorities to shut down the north-south artery for 17 hours beginning Thursday afternoon.

Stranded motorists packed motels on either side of the Grapevine overnight. California Highway Patrol officers reopened the roadway at about 9 a.m. local time on Friday and began escorting cars along the treacherous route, CHP Officer Mike Harris said.

Precise weather conditions along the Grapevine during the freeze were not recorded, but neighboring areas posted temperatures in the mid-20s Fahrenheit, said Stuart Seto, a forecaster for the National Weather Service.

In the San Joaquin Valley, a major agricultural area, low temperatures in the teens threatened to kill citrus crops, which are in danger of perishing whenever the mercury falls below 28 degrees, said meteorologist Jeff Barlow said.

The Weather Service alerted farmers to the danger so they could take precautions, but there may still be a heavy loss.

"They won't be able to save all of the crops," Barlow said. "This is going to be a pretty significant freeze event for the central California citrus crops."

MTV is gross showing a woman with a younger
girl. She convinces her to love her.
This is seduction and she should be arrested.
These TV stations are not censoring what they
show to the younger generations. They are responsible for all of the stupidity of this
generation. If this is for ratings then
they are going to get burned. Children watch

Why we are where we are today:
1999 - Bill Clinton put CRA on steroids pushing Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to increase number of sub-prime loans.
1999 - New York Times published an article “Fannie Mae Eases Credit to Aid Mortgage Lending” warning of coming crisis due to lax lending policies of the Clinton administration.
2003 - White House called Fannie and Freddie a “systemic risk” and Bush administration pushed Congress to enact new regulations.
2003 - Rep. Barney Frank said Fannie and Freddie are “not in a crisis,” bashed Republican-sponsored regulation legislation.
2005 - Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan voiced warning over F&F accounting, saying,“We are placing the total financial system of the future at a substantial risk.”
2005 - Sen. Charles Schumer said F&F “over the years have done an incredibly good job and are an intrinsic part of making America the best-housed people in the world.”
2006 - Sen. John McCain again called for reform of regulatory structure governing F&F. And again Democrats blocked reform legislation.
2008 - The housing market collapsed.
2008-Present - Democrats blamed the Republicans.
Sure Carol, you're still trying to blame the CRA, Fannie and Freddie for the subprime mortgage mess when in fact they had nothing to do with it. The Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission stated;
The Commission concludes the CRA was not a significant factor in subprime lending or the crisis. Many subprime lenders were not subject to the CRA. Research indicates only 6% of the high cost loans - a proxy for subprime loans - had any connection to the law. Loans made by CRA-regulated lenders in the neighborhoods in which they were required to lend were half as likely to default as similar loans made in the same neighborhoods by independent mortgage originators not subject to the law.[The Financial Crisis Inquiry Report, January 2011]
The Federal Reserve stated;
We find little evidence that either the CRA or the GSE goals played a significant role in the subprime crisis. Our lender tests indicate that areas disproportionately served by lenders covered by the CRA experienced lower delinquency rates and less risky lending. Similarly, the threshold tests show no evidence that either program had a significantly negative effect on outcomes.[Federal Reserve, 8/3/11]
But what the heck Carol, you've never let actual facts stand in your way before.
