Merry Christmas, Happy Whatever (too lazy to look up the spelling of the Jewish holiday -- no offense meant),...
...and, other contrived holidays both real and imagined -- go for it.
Sparse posting for awhile while I celebrate anything that affords fun times.

Why would someone think they are on the right side of history when they've chosen to be on no side of history?

Scrap the "Nuance"
Regarding the authoritarian enterprises we are -- in one way or another -- at war with (i.e. The Taliban, Al Qaeda, numerous Islamo-fascist factions, and, of course, garden variety totalitarian ideologues), I think the Obam-aologies and self-effacing (in Obama's case it's always country-effacing, not personal humility) are getting a little old.
Although it's not "nuanced" or intellectually appealing, I think something on the order of, "No more Mr. Nice Guy" would be a more honest and effective strategy when dealing with the world's dictatorship scum.

Eduring the Nonsense...again
I've had to endure it again. I'd say a week doesn't go by in which I hear someone express sympathy, apologies, or outright support for the values of communist "revolution." It's enough to make an informed person truly ill, particularly in view of the fact that those who make such blatantly stupid comments are usually at least middle class and well endowed with the play toys of capitalist abundance.
I still can't fathom the hypocrisy of millionaire film directors and entertainers who worship at the shrine of authoritarian collectivist philosophy. Micheal Moore, Oliver Stone, and George Clooney (to name just a few) would all be serving time if their faux-rebel stance against “the system” was attempted in Cuba. If they were critical of the state (“the people”) in Cuba at the start of Castro's coup de' etat, they would have likely been executed by their hero, Che Guevara.
There is plenty of information available regarding what really happened in Cuba a half a century ago. Of course, when one states the case for freedom and notes the facts regarding Castro's grasp for power, the usual response is something like, "you can't believe everything you see on the internet" or "how do you know what really happened, were you there?" Ah, ...yeah, okay, good argument. I give up, communism and imposed poverty stricken dictatorship really is a good thing (pleeease).
Anyway, this is just one really good site that critiques some of the old leftist cliche's regarding what a paradise Cuba now is since it's been driven into the ground by a typical leftist autocrat.
On an unrelated note (maybe not so unrelated), this ongoing thing about what a hero Obama is and how unfair his detractors are is getting a little old. No coincidence that the people who thought George Bush was Hitler also think B. Hussein Obama is Mother Theresa.
