Hitler was basically a typical politician. Just a very efficient and effective one. If he had won the war, the history books would record him as a hero.

Remember, the greater the death toll, the more highly regarded an historical leader's legacy will be among mainstream academics. All that matters is that they win their wars. Just look at their rankings of U.S. presidents for confirmation of that.

I doubt any U.S. President is comparable to the author of an holocaust.

To be fair, Libertas compares the holocaust to stringent forum moderation.

And, of course, he considers the results of the former to be a good thing (while we consider the latter to be good).

A really twisted producer of avant-garde theatre. Produced some of Europe's most memorable performances though is now seen as a bit of a embarrasment to the profession.

Clearly the solution is to privatize presidential elections.

Okay, to clarify all I'm saying is that it is time we to start to recognize the positive things Hitler did, instead of always focusing on the negative.

While it is true he underestimated the USSR in 1941, it is also true that the USSR would have attacked Europe anyway had Hitler waited a few more years. I think it is safe to say Hitler saved Western civilization from Communism by striking first, when the USSR was weaker.

Germans today are largely infertile, a good many are non-German immigrants imported from other natons.

Regarding wages, that seems rather petty when considering he wiped out a 30% unemployment rate and initiated an economic boom. Wages in 1938 were about the same as in 1928.

It is an indisputable fact that the West has been on an unstoppable moral, intellectual, and social decline ever since the Allies destroyed Germany.

Why are we not allowed to have positive opinions about Hitler? Russians have positive opinions of Stalin, and he was responsible for more deaths.

Have you considered that the low fertility and cultural decline is the response of a postmodern civilization to the guilt and trauma of the Holocaust and the War that Hitler led Europe into?

I think it's the HC that shows that stupid pawn shop show that so many tourists (usually rednecks) keep asking us locals where to find.  I know precisely where it is, but I usually send them on a goose chase, for gits and shiggles.

Well it's kinda tricky to get to, so bear with me.  First, from the Boulevard take Sahara heading east, then take a right onto Boulder Highway.  Follow that until you get to Tropicana Avenue, and then head west until you pass the Boulevard, then keep going until Decatur.  Then head north on Decatur until you reach Sahara, then take a right.  Once you get there, ask me again.

Even in the early 2000s you could tell that the channel was about to go downhill.

Most of the theme cable channels have pretty much lost their theme by now.  You can occasionally still find healthcare on Discovery Health, but that's it.

Everything else is just a 24 hour cycle of Real World and Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives knock offs.
