We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Mao Zedong, founder of the People’s Republic of China, qualifies as the greatest mass murderer in world history, an expert who had unprecedented access to official Communist Party archives said yesterday.
Although Mao and his cohorts were very proficient I do not think he ranks as the greatest or most prolific murderer. I would grant that honour to Mohammad who along with his Muslim thugs have killed, murdered or caused the death of far more than Mao and they are still at it. Also Mao was satisfied with staying in his home land mostly with his agenda of killing whereas Mohammad wanted and his followers still want to spread their death and destruction around the world. To me it is no contest. Mohammad was and is the most murderous man in history.
Bob Devine ... When it's written into the instruction manual [the Koran] that killing 'the neighbor and the stranger' and the non-Muslim is good, and expected of the faithful, what else can we expect? After all, we are the strangers, the infidels, as is everyone else in the world who is not a faithful Muslim. And the Koran urges the faithful to keep on killing us until there is no one left but the Muslim faithful.
