We started using the term Comrade in the office and two Zimbabwean colleagues chastised me. Surprising as they were tied in the dye Comunists who fought for Mugabe, and recently disinfranchised. They are offended because they know they were wrong and it brings up bad memories. It is now a standing greeting of humour as we all were burnt. It does confuse clients though....... Welcome to the first step in total tax comrades, we had a cumulative 69% in Zimbabwe. It meant those at the top had to take more out to justify their existance and the dudes down the line were torched by corporate and tax men. Cde Tim

Same for Traitor Hanoi Jane Fonda.

Another nail in the coffin of Communism!" Of course, in my 20-year absence, the Communists were taking over at home. Turns out they should have had us all working in the U.S. instead of overseas!

The neocons do the thinking for the Republican leadership on all matters of strategy and morality in politics. Boehner wouldn't take a dump if the neocons told him not to, and if they told him to do so, he would strain for hours. Neocons want tax increases, because paying higher taxes is a sacrifice. Neocons believe that the little people have to be forced into sacrificing for the "collective self," i.e., the state, because that is the only way to preserve the social order. What they...
