14. OK.Have you ever heard the phrase,"You'll be the first against the wall when the revoultion starts?"

(I know, it was a line in the Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy, but that's not what we're talking about.)

It wasn't a meme put out by the RW. But the LEFT back before HHGTTG was written by Douglas Adams.

Yes the LEFT. And it wasn't a joke. It was a threat. And it happened. Let's start with:
Nicolae Ceaușescu and his wife, despots in Romania. Responsible for the murder of thousands. They were against the wall. Firing squad.
Fidel Castro overthrew Batista a RW oppressive oligarch. (If the US had been more friendly to Castro, we'd be allies today.)
We and the people of Italy defeated the RW dictator Benito Mussolini and his (self-named) fascist regime when he and his mistress were hung and practically torn apart.
We got Hitler.
We got Osama.

There are others...but we are the peacemakers and peackeepers, but don't push us too far. We will bite back.



I don't know if I buy your critique. The RW likes (?) to do what they do because they get some kind of enjoyment out of it. Guess I'd call them sadists. Psychopaths don't give a shit about others and will only do things that advance their aims. I guess the problem is we're not. We want to have nice lives and worry about our loved ones and our environment and our humanity.

But make no mistake. We will fight like crazy to put those who would bring harm to me and mine.

I have no regrets with the 60s saying....'first against the wall..." if it comes to that.
