George Patton's Summer of 1944

It was Eisenhower's job provide support where it was needed the most. Patton was moving fast and winning. He should have received the support that would have allowed him to continue rolling over the Germans. Instead Ike supported the overly cautious loosers. Kind of like what we are doing today. It takes boldness and action to gain anything in life.
Even a broken clock shows the correct time twice in 24 hours.
I apply that attitude to politicians in general. I don't care what side they are on.

I am a firm supporter of the statement " America love it or Leave it ". Take your c.r.a.p back with you to where you came from!

After escaping from Hungary in 1956 my family and I waited two an a half years in a refugee camp in Austria waiting to be processed to receive a green card to emigrate to the US. There were the medical examinations back-round checks an so on. Our Family in the US had to accept financial responsibility for us in addition to all of the above. So what was all that about ? Just a joke on us. And Darb I never saw any signs in Hungarian anywhere. Of course I didn't need it. I wanted to be an American as fast as I could learn English. I would have been embarrassed by having instructions posted in Hungarian.

Darb, not you too? We get enough of this at Lowes and Home Depot.
Doesn't it make you question the entire charade with Russia. Picking on small insignificant neighbors like Estonia, Georgia, Ukraine. With their immense country, boundless natural resources why are they continually starting conflict with their tiny neighbors? It is to deflect their citizens attention from the brutality, exploitation and looting by the ruling classes.
I grew up in communist Hungary and as a 14 year old watched the Russian tanks roll in and crush my country. That was following the revolution toppling the Communist regime and declaring ourselves a free nation. Rom Paul is an ignorant moron and certainly out of touch with History. The Russians will always be the greatest threat to world peace. Its in their DNA.
Geez, I used to think that the paulistas were just mildly deranged. To even consider a statement coming from Putin and the Russian politburo as truthful one must be completely deranged.
Paolo, you need to ease up on the coolaid brother before you end up with dementia. .
