Uh, I don't know about you, but I tend not to laugh at jokes about icons in their respected departments dying a slow painful death from a horrible, incurable disease.

I cannot believe that Gay Activists and Obama do not support polygamy.  What a bunch of hypocrites! 

If Gay Activists really support marriage freedom, they would also support polygamy.

At least Romney supports polygamy, its time for Obama and Gay activists to step up. 

There are literally thousands of children who suffer from divorced families.  Polygamy will help alleviate the suffering that these children have with single moms and absentee fathers.  Polygamy is actually beneficial for children because there are larger families to offer support.

This rather belongs in the Utterly Sickening Posts Sh*tmine, but for the lack of such thread I got to post it there.

While nothing will cause lefties to spaz out more than suggesting Allende/the Spanish Republicans/Sandinistas were worse than their opposition (why only things happening in Spanish-speaking countries cause spaz-out reactions I don't know), the fact remains that the Latin left, especially of the Commie variety, especially of the pro-Soviet Commie variety at the height of the Cold War, were and are not very nice people.  If you don't believe that, I'll invite you to move to Cuba.  Since they'll put you up in the relative luxury accomodations reserved for Useful Idiots, you should subsequently renounce your European citizenships and get yourself arrested for a real representative taste.  I'm sure you'll love it.  They have nice weather and excellent cigars!

Edit:  Addendum:  Latin politics is not good guys and bad guys, it's generally bad guys and worse guys.  Pinochet was very bad but far better than what would have happened otherwise.  Perhaps saying the coup was a "positive event" was a bit too breezy, more like a non-negative event.

Of course the second was a positive event, but suggesting the Chilean coup was a positive event...

The experience of Mint's family and the Central European history course I just finished (with a professor who lived under Communism in Czechoslovakia) pretty much have cured me of any remaining illusions I might have been under regarding the Latin left and Communists generally.  There's precious little that wouldn't be preferable to them.

I see the point you're making in this post as well as the previous one. Instead of suggesting that the Chilean coup was positive, you're suggesting that the alternatives would've been much worse in contrast, am I right?

I'm naturally suspicious of communism (being Cuban and all), and I still recognize the level of bullsh**t that comment was.

Has anyone pointed out that Allende was not actually a Communist? Of course there's no denying that he was a silly old fool, but then that's hardly the same thing.

Yeah, he was a silly old fool who clung to outdated dreams and rhetoric, and who failed to understand how the world actually worked or quite how dangerous it was. Partly because of that he had some dodgy friends. He wasn't a Communist though and was certainly not a dictator. I suppose he was technically a threat to democracy, but only accidentally and because of his own naivety.

Allende created a Cuban-armed private army which stole nearly all the farmland in the country and created "red zones" in which they exercised complete control and barred all constitutionally-authorized authorities from entering, in violation of thousands of court rulings.  Peaceful protests against the economic policies of his regime (which produced 508% inflation, among other things) were dispersed violently.  It was also found that Allende had been planning his own coup and was planning on massacring most of the officer corps and several hundred opposition politicians and journalists, as only the inauguration of the regime he was planning.  A "democrat" he was not.  A wannabe dictator in the Soviet Bloc, he was.

Sorry, you're right, there's a decent case he already was a dictator in the Soviet Bloc.  Facts are some crazy sh**t, aren't they?

Allende ... stole nearly all the farmland in the country...

Oh come on now, are you really thinking about what you're saying?  You do realize all that land was stolen by Spanish aristocrats from the Indians, where were still slaves upon it in Allende's day (and are so still today!).
