Kickin' It Commie Style. Fun Links For The Masses.

Two general reasons for spotlighting Communism in this post... 1. I'm headed to Austin Wednesday through Sunday for my twice a year guy's only weekend. The other guy's weekend is in January for NFL playoffs. Basically it's a bunch of guys (most of us have known each other the majority of our lives) getting together to drink, eat, play golf, drink some more, etc. Usually we head to a friend's lake house in Whitney, Texas. (Cue banjo music: More people in Whitney are named Cletus and have Confederate flags per square foot than any other place in Texas.... That may or may not be true, but it seems that way.) Whitney is a good place for 6 guys to play on the lake, or golf on a 18-hole goat ranch, but this year is the 10th anniversary of the summer weekend and it was time to kick it up a couple of quads per channel. The invitation list has also expanded to 10 people, so it only seemed fitting that we do it right. Here's a look at where we are staying. Cove Haven Besides the main house that sleeps 8 comfortably, it also has a enclosed floating dock house that sleeps 4 with a sliding panel in the floor that allows you to fish from the living room. My concern is having too much to drink, forgetting to close the panel, and falling through in the middle of the night. This should be interesting, and I may change my mind about staying in the dock house. Anyway, back to the point of all this... With the possible exception of San Francisco (Berkeley included), Seattle, and New York, all of New England... I doubt there are many places more liberal (ie: communist/socialist/nanny state) than Austin, Texas. It's a beautiful place... Pictures to prove it can be found here, here and here. (You will want to check out the first link although it may not be safe for work.) Austin is also home to the University of Texas, as well as the capital... ...but, because the hippie/socialist/communist/anarchist/and all around dumbass quotient is higher in Austin than any other Texas town, the following shirt should be required dress for me when I visit, as a counter to the usual Che shirt: Concerning real Che t-shirts... WTF is it with you moronic college punks? You think it's cool to wear a murdering communist icon? I understand celebs wearing this shit; they're unbelievably dumb, but those of you in college should be just a little smarter than they are. I can tell you, and I believe this with all my heart (not to mention the number of killings on record committed by him or for him), Che would have sliced you open from ass to mouth like a gutted trout because you, as a member of the ruling class, would have been his greatest threat. Think about that before you open your hole saying anything about Che being cool. End of mini-rant. So, we're heading into Hippieville, where the links I have below would be welcomed with open arms. That is reason number one for the anti-Communist diatribe. 2. The second reason I'm posting commie crap is because Castro isn't dead yet even though he should be. The SOB probably made a deal with the Devil. How else can you explain him lasting as long as he has? Here's hoping they drag his body through the Havana ghettos behind a goat cart when he dies. Fidel and Che had a dream... That dream was to build a worker's paradise for the good of all. The only problem with their plan is anyone that disagreed with the direction they wanted was, at best to be thrown in jail until they died, or at worst, tortured until Che got tired of listening to them scream, and he had them shot. Communist dictators are great people, aren't they? To honor that dream (nightmare) I offer the following: A. The greatest explanation of how Communism works I've ever seen. It's a flash game in cartoon form so even the dullest commie wannabe can understand. It takes time to load, but is by far better than anything I've ever seen in conveying the hopelessness of lives under communist rule. If you want to watch something that will make you feel so utterly cold and empty while giving you a life lesson you will never forget, this is it: Comrade, you must bring in the tomatoes for the good of the Proletariat! On the above game the goal is simple: Bring in the tomatoes from your collective veggie garden and press the tomatoes into soup/paste/whatever before the pigs eat everything you've worked for. And always remember this quote from Animal Farm while you play: ALL ANIMALS ARE EQUAL BUT SOME ANIMALS ARE MORE EQUAL THAN OTHERS. I had to include the picture above. He'd make a good Napoleon from Animal Farm. If he ever did a remake, I assume his ending would have the animals living together in peace and harmony. Б. Depressing Gulags? I Can’t wait! FYI: The following flash video is called Pustota. Pustota means "Emptiness or Wasteland" in Russian. Pustota В. Negative Utopias? You bet! Remember comrade, all property belongs to the state Г. Original site for the two above is here. Д. Now a game to bring you out of your funk. Escape from the dungeon Russian Cyrillic alphabet in place of numbers used on purpose so the Communists feel included. Everyone have a good weekend. I know I will.
