    I love Che, but I love more what he stood for and what he and Castro achieved in Cuba. His name and image have since been corrupted by T-shirts and merchandise like these. I challenge you all to read up on him.

    AAAIIIEEE! That`s scary!

    @Draculya: Tell me again how you`re "not a leftist"? :rolleyes:

    Che murdered, tortured, killed civilians ON PURPOSE and was in turn killed BY HIS OWN FRIENDS for being far too radical (too radical for Castro! It boggles the imagination!) eh?

    Let`s take a look at who Che Guevara really was and why all these dumba$$es who wear t-shirts with his face on them are f*cking idiots.

    1. He was responsible for the execution of thousands of political prisoners in Cuba (most of them purely for their opposition to Castro`s communist policies).

    2. He enjoyed torturing & abusing the prisoners, including children.

    3. He was instrumental in setting up the Castro regime`s massive forced labor camps & secret police.

    4. He tried to organize campaigns of terrorism against civilians in the US and elsewhere (though he largely failed in these efforts).

    5. Far from being merely a Third World nationalist or pragmatic leftist, he was a committed, hard-line Stalinist, even going so far as to call himself "Stalin II" early in his career.

    "Now let`s scare some liberals."

    Doesn`t scare people who rely on reality instead of idealized fantasy. Reagan was more liberal than Romney. He was more liberal than most Republicans today. Hell, he might be more liberal than Obama.

    "that last comment just might be the dumbest of all."

    Well the things jtrebowski mentioned are all true. Here is some more:

    In Reagan`s first term annualized growth of federal spending was 8.7%. Meanwhile "the most liberal president ever", Obama, had federal spending growth of 1.4%.

    "Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush said today that both Ronald Reagan and his father George H. W. Bush would have had a difficult time getting nominated by today’s ultra-conservative Republican Party."

    Lou Cannon, journalist and Reagan biographer, says the beloved GOP icon would have a hard time winning the GOP nomination because the California Republicans have moved so far to the right. From the LA Times:

    Whodat:

    1. Che didn`t just execute individuals who opposed the Castro regime, if that were the case then there wouldn`t be a Little Havana in Miami. Che executed individuals who were convicted of being torturing and assassinating civilians under the orders of Fulgencio Batista. He also executed individuals who gave military aid to the Batista regime...spies, military traitors, etc....

    2. I can`t say if he enjoyed killing others. I would say that he felt more of a sense of justification than philia. And I haven`t read anywhere that he tortured and killed children.

    3. Yes he was instrumental in this respect. The greatest fault of the Castro regime was in its treatment of homosexuals. But, Che believed that every individual had a duty to actively work for the benefit of their country. Che would actually spend his "free time" out in the fields cutting sugar cane, which is far from an easy job.

    I know its weird, but in a country where a majority of the population were illiterate agricultural laborers, Che didn`t feel that it was "forced labor" as much as "the people who grow your food do this, you should too."

    4. It was quite the opposite. The rich Cubans who benefited under the previous dictatorship and were deposed by Castro orchestrated bombings in Cuba, attacks that went against everyone, not just politicians, but civilians as well. Castro and Che weren`t stupid enough to coax the US government by giving them a reason to invade, which they did anyway(Bay of Pigs).

    5. I`ll give you that. He did call himself a Stalinist. But, in the Cold War latin america, you were either 100%Pro-Capitalism or 100%Pro-Commie. If you lingered in the middle you were liable to be picked up by CIA trained police agents.

    5cats - The CIA and Bolivian army were never Che`s friends. I think you meant Camilo Cienfuegos. If so, you may have a point.

    I would punch him in the face so hard, the real Che would feel it. (I would do the same thing to anyone dressed up as a Hitler, Stalin, Mao, or Pol Pot t-shirt, and for exactly the same reason.)

    "Next time pick someone that`s not biased HG."

    Jtrebowski Gave you 6 facts, I gave you a pretty big one, and a quote from Republican superstar Jeb Bush. However the only thing you respond to is a quote from a biographer and you choose to refute it with someone`s review on Amazon?

    "Cannon, Bob Woodward has said, "is a great reporter." He "knows more about California, politics, the White House, the presidency and Ronald Reagan than just about anyone."

    If you want to post data post a link. I feel like a broken record. I posted my link. I don`t believe your information at all, so post data to back it up.

    Can you check your data ever? Just do a quick search to see if what you are saying is correct.

    2008`s federal spending WAS NOT $2.9 Trillion it was $3.168 Trillion.

    2012`s federal spending WAS NOT $3.8 Trillion it was $3.563 Trillion.

    That`s an increase of 12% NOT 78%. Hell your WRONG numbers are only an increase of 31%. Can you math?

    By the way my numbers are from heritage.org so PLEASE don`t call it biased.

    @klaxor: It was my impression that Castro (and whatever political party they both belonged to) SENT Che to Bolivia and then arranged to murder him.
    Haven`t researched it or anything...

    @HolyGod are you STILL beating that dead horse? No matter HOW MANY times I`ve proven you wrong?

    2009 Budget: Bush wrote it! Oh wait... Obama, Reid and Pelosi did.
    But Bush signed it! Oh, nope again! It was Obama...

    But he`s STILL resopnsible! Blame Bush! It`s ALL his fault!

    "2009 Budget: Bush wrote it! Oh wait... Obama, Reid and Pelosi did.
    But Bush signed it! Oh, nope again! It was Obama... "

    When you are in the process of being wrong you should probably ditch the sarcasm, because it makes you look more ridiculous.

    Here is an article from the CATO Institute, a Libertarian blog.

    http://tinyurl.com/245zkev

    "The chart is based on the assumption that the current administration should be blamed for the 2009 fiscal year. While this makes sense to a casual observer, it is largely untrue. The 2009 fiscal year began October 1, 2008, nearly four months before Obama took office. The budget for the entire fiscal year was largely set in place while Bush was in the White House."

    We can debate lots of things, but this isn`t one of them. The 2009 budget was set by the Bush administration and BEGAN 4 MONTHS BEFORE OBAMA T

    Che was in love with his own image as the ideal revolutionary man. After he failed at his revolution in the Congo, he was determined to succeed somewhere a little closer to home, hence, Bolivia. Che was killed by Bolivian police who were trained by a Cuban exile turned CIA who was previously involved in the Bay of Pigs invasion, the last person who would make a deal with Castro.

    (The african fiasco is also where a lot of the "racism" accusations come from. Che said that the African warriors made bad soldiers b/c they were too superstitious, which they were; and b/c they made bad political decisions, which they did. The U.S. was and still is more racist than Che was.)

    @HG: I just knew you`d say something like that! You`ve become quite predictable in your trolling, eh?

    When did GM get it`s bailout? June 1, 2009
    So BUSH did that? It`s a "yes or no" question @HG, try to answer honestly for once.

    You: all spending before Sept 30 is the responsibilty of the former PotUS.
    Me: Here are several clear examples of why that is false.
    You: BUSH`S FAULT!!!!

    Once more: Fiscal Year =/= Budget Passed Year
    2008 Budget signed by Bush = Bush`s fault.
    2009 Budget signed by Obama = Bush`s fault too!

    "The budget for the entire fiscal year..." this is false, a lie, clearly wrong.

    @CodeJockey: GM and Chrysler got money from the TARP plan, it`s true! In Dec 2008.
    However, any "lame duck" decision would need to be (and was) ratified by the NEXT Congress (Obama) or it`s invalid.

    At my link it also says the Gov`t gave GM about $700 Million in March and May of 2009, both would be BY Obama, not Bush.

    700$? Chicken feed! Chump change! Lolz!
