They Worship What They Do NOT Understand

"The Che iPhone App
"You knew it was coming. Well, now you can carry around Che Guevara's quotes on your iPhone -- as just announced by the good folks at iPhone! Alas, many of us, though not customer of this unquestionably hip product, suspect that most of Che Guevara's hippest quotes are missing from this hippest of iPhones.
Among those we fear were overlooked: "My nostrils dilate while savoring the acrid odor of gunpowder and blood...Crazy with fury I will stain my rifle red while slaughtering any surrendered enemy that falls in my hands! With the deaths of my enemies I prepare my being for the sacred fight and join the triumphant proletariat with a bestial howl!" (From Che's own diaries, later immortalized as The Motorcycles Diaries, though we note that executive producer Robert Redford "overlooked" this unquestionably dramatic citation for his movie.)
"Hatred as the central element of our struggle!...Hatred that is intransigent....Hatred so violent that it propels a human being beyond his natural limitations, making him violent and cold- blooded killing machine...We reject any peaceful approach. Violence is inevitable. To establish Socialism rivers of blood must flow!... The imperialist enemy must feel like a hunted animal wherever he moves. Thus we'll destroy him! These hyenas (Americans) are fit only for extermination. We must keep our hatred alive and fan it to paroxysm! The victory of Socialism is well worth millions of atomic victims!" (thus spake the icon of flower-children)"

If you are letting your children or you yourself have Che stuff floating in a "way-too-cool-for-school" way, knock it off, keep it off your kids and learn what a true monster this person was. Don't let Hollywood dictate what you should or should not think of this murderous tyrant. If you chose to keep the Che stuff after learning what he did, then all I can say is you should move to Cuba. I suspect though any sane person, when learning what he stood for, would throw it to the dogs where it all belongs, and stop supporting people who hold this man up as a hero.

Yep, Our church brought this to light also. Its amazing what slips through.

Beverly, I wanted to thank you so much fpor sharing with me about you accident. Bailey's nose is almost all healed after i followed your advise and the rest of the family members keep commenting on how crazy fast it is healing. The scab disappeared the first day of keeping the neospirin on it and blah blah. But i also wanted to tell you how very sorry I am that you had to go through all that.

Its no wonder that you are so wise, all your life experiences.
