History / Re: USSR Gulag Camp System

It's been touched-on... 

You mean an in-depth drama about one camp? 

There's The Way Back, from 2010, with Colin Farrell and Ed Harris, escaping from a Siberian gulag.  It's frontloaded with political overtones, then eases-into survivalist soliloquies. 

And guys like Solzhenitsyn don't wanna 'sell out' to Hollywood for a quick buck.  Their suffering has to have a meaning greater than themselves.

If it's not a documentary, you've gotta draw an audience in with a story.

In the interview Colin Farrell made on the DVD, he said he never knew of the millions killed in the Communist genocide, that it was a shock to him. From what I've seen of that movie I linked to, it seems like a love story in there somewhere.

MSM Distraction News / Expelled Nazis paid millions in Social Security

I don't guess that we should be surprised. :confused:

(Just a snippet of a very long, very thorough article)

OSIJEK, Croatia (AP) — Former Auschwitz guard Jakob Denzinger lived the American dream.

His plastics company in the Rust Belt town of Akron, Ohio, thrived. By the late 1980s, he had acquired the trappings of success: a Cadillac DeVille and a Lincoln Town Car, a lakefront home, investments in oil and real estate.

Then the Nazi hunters showed up.

In 1989, as the U.S. government prepared to strip him of his citizenship, Denzinger packed a pair of suitcases and fled to Germany. Denzinger later settled in this pleasant town on the Drava River, where he lives comfortably, courtesy of U.S. taxpayers. He collects a Social Security payment of about $1,500 each month, nearly twice the take-home pay of an average Croatian worker.

Denzinger, 90, is among dozens of suspected Nazi war criminals and SS guards who collected millions of dollars in Social Security payments after being forced out of the United States, an Associated Press investigation found.

The payments flowed through a legal loophole that has given the U.S. Justice Department leverage to persuade Nazi suspects to leave. If they agreed to go, or simply fled before deportation, they could keep their Social Security, according to interviews and internal government records.

Like Denzinger, many lied about their Nazi pasts to get into the U.S. following World War II, and eventually became American citizens.

Among those who benefited:

—armed SS troops who guarded the Nazi network of camps where millions of Jews perished.

—an SS guard who took part in the brutal liquidation of the Warsaw ghetto in Nazi-occupied Poland that killed as many as 13,000 Jews.

—a Nazi collaborator who engineered the arrest and execution of thousands of Jews in Poland.

—a German rocket scientist accused of using slave labor to build the V-2 rocket that pummeled London. He later won NASA's highest honor for helping to put a man on the moon.

The AP's findings are the result of more than two years of interviews, research and analysis of records obtained through the Freedom of Information Act and other sources.
Political Discussion and Debate / U.S. Humanitarian Aid Going to ISIS
« Last post by Solar on October 19, 2014, 08:39:22 PM »
What a Clusterfuck!

Not only are foodstuffs, medical supplies—even clinics—going to ISIS, the distribution networks are paying ISIS ‘taxes’ and putting ISIS people on their payrolls.
GAZIANTEP, Turkey — While U.S. warplanes strike at the militants of the so-called Islamic State in both Syria and Iraq, truckloads of U.S. and Western aid has been flowing into territory controlled by the jihadists, assisting them to build their terror-inspiring “Caliphate.”

The aid—mainly food and medical equipment—is meant for Syrians displaced from their hometowns, and for hungry civilians. It is funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development, European donors, and the United Nations. Whether it continues is now the subject of anguished debate among officials in Washington and European. The fear is that stopping aid would hurt innocent civilians and would be used for propaganda purposes by the militants, who would likely blame the West for added hardship.

The Bible says if your enemy is hungry, feed him, and if he is thirsty, give him something to drink—doing so will “heap burning coals” of shame on his head. But there is no evidence that the militants of the Islamic State, widely known as ISIS or ISIL, feel any sense of disgrace or indignity (and certainly not gratitude) receiving charity from their foes. 

Quite the reverse, the aid convoys have to pay off ISIS emirs (leaders) for the convoys to enter the eastern Syrian extremist strongholds of Raqqa and Deir ez-Zor, providing yet another income stream for ISIS militants, who are funding themselves from oil smuggling, extortion and the sale of whatever they can loot, including rare antiquities from museums and archaeological sites.

“The convoys have to be approved by ISIS and you have to pay them: the bribes are disguised and itemized as transportation costs,” says an aid coordinator who spoke to The Daily Beast on the condition he not be identified in this article.

Sorry to repeat the theme here, but did anyone see Prince George's County mentioned? Anyone? Raise your hand. It's about 65%black. Wiki states it's "the wealthiest African American-majority county in the United States".
To me this is the bigger story. Upper Marlboro evokes in print an image of white upper class honkies in horse country that departed His Haughtiness' presence. Didn't happen like that.

most just don't think about that! The reality is, 40-50 million new Democrat dependents for the Taxpayer to subsidize.

This will completely destroy the country. Obama's plan is working flawlessly. Destroy the country and make EVERYBODY dependent on the Democrat Party for the crumbs.

Most have lost the capacity to think for themselves!

I blame the American people who are too occupied with football, baseball, dancing with the stars etc. etc. for the demise of the country.

Pitchforks should have been sharpened long ago and at the ready!

What they don't understand, when it time the Democrat Party will start taking it all away from them also.  It's just a matter of time if they keep voting the way they are. 
Even Dims are sick of true liberalism, or rather, failed Marxist policy.
