Marcus Aurelius

Marcos a bad regime? I know plenty of Filipinos who think Marcos was a genuinely great president. Can't be any worse than it is now.


I love the way idiots toss out Marco, Pinochet, and the various other third world thugocracies we've aided and abetted in the past without ever acknowledging the fact that we had opponents that made such unsavoury alliances necessary. World War III was taking place in the shadows, and these people focus on the few cockroaches that scurried across the floor.

Sorry your night out was interrupted.


Is there an epidemic of this? Last time the two of us went out to dinner at a nice restaurant, the strangers, two tables over insisted on inflicting ALL of Kitty Kelley's opinions of the Bush family on us at TOP volume and with a knowing wink and a smirk and a "only rubes vote for for Bush" look.

While my husband -- urbane, sophisticated -- kept me from making one of the fifty retorts that came to mind, the strangers switched topics. Yep -- the joos. The joos who are to blame for all the evil in the world. The text switched to the Protocols...

At which point I started making sarcastic retorts, as loud as theirs, until the manager came over and asked them to shut up -- then asked us what he could do to make it up to us.

It was our anniversary. We paid a babysitter. Maybe it's an epidemic?

As for Marco and Pinochet and such -- American leftists aren't exactly insular. They just ALWAYS refused to see communism as evil and the soviet union as imperialistic. They simply couldn't understand why we were protecting people from paradise.
