    Marxist story telling at its best! Do you really expect that any

    Marxist story telling at its best! Do you really expect that anyone should believe anything that Fidel Castro would say about his murderous Marxist political philosophy? Yes the useful idiots described by Lenin are out there in mass and this is a tale for them.  The craft of lies and deception have been mastered by the Marxist elite who quickly separate themselves from the misery they inflict on those delusional enough to believe what these peddlers are selling! Edmund Burke was so right when he stated, "that men never surrender their liberties except under some delusion". Well this book is just that and a good read for those who wish to believe in the fantasy of the virtue and nobility of Marxist fundamentalism and its heroic attempt to rescue the world from the injustices of capitalism and the materially impoverished plight of the poor working masses? The fact that no Marxist government ever made  good on its lies and false promises is a fact that we just have to overlook in order to uncritically evaluate its inherent and evils and monumental failures! Forget about all of the human beings who were sent to prisons and were slaughtered in mass by virtually every Marxist society and continue to persist in believing with all of your heart in the goodness and virtue of this pernicious political system despite harsh realities to the contrary? Talk about blind and ignorant faith? And these are the people who tell us that religion is the opiate of the masses? Quite astounding indeed? But to be so mindless and even worse deliberately denying the incontestable truth of the wicked and wretched nature and practice of communism is without any rational excuse! So if this is what you wish to believe then Castro's portrayal of Che is just what you would want to hear from those who share your malevolent and depraved selfish political ambitions! Fidel has done his duty and now can be regarded as one of the great fiction writers of all time. Well done Fidel!

    Awake. Part 3 by sunglow

    "Okay. Speak. You tell me why you killed him, and i let you go. But you are still out of this tribe. If you do not tell me why this has happened...i might just have to kill you with ky bare hands. Pulling your heart out of your chest. Now speak." He said. She still had no idea who this guy wad...but i guess she knew that he is the king...but is behind a curtain. "Well...he tried to kill me." She admitted. "He told me he worked fr some other place. I forget where. But he said he was an assasine." She said. "But you have to know where." He said. "You have to!" "But i dont remember. Honestly!" <br> "why?" <br> "he only said the first 2 letters until he hit me." <br> "What two words?" <br> "like i said, i do not know." <br> "take her out to the cell!" He declared the guards. <p> i gasped as i awoke. Wondering who this girl is. I have to find out. I got in my purple mustang. I drove to the wizard's palace. "Hello, is the wizard of zo here?" I asked. "Yes. He is. Go into the door to the right." The girl who worked here said. She was in her frilly pink skirt and a yellow beautiful blouse. Her hair was strawberyry blond and she had frecked all over her face. I went to the room with the Wizard of Zo. "Hello?" I asked. All i heard was really weird words. Maybe a spell. I picked up a book. It read: "&sigma&epsilon&chi&rho&epsilon&tau &sigma&pi&epsilon&lambda&lambda &beta&omicron&omicron&kappa " i wsd like WHAT THE HE<_>LL???? but i said that in my mind. "Get out!" I heard a guy say. He walked up to me. His beard at least a foot. He was at least 1000 years of age. "Are you wizard of zo?" I asked. "Yes. Why are you even here?" He asked. "Well i turn into this girl for like a split second, and se is in my dreams." I explained. "Yes...whst does she look like?" "She has black hair, black eyes, black skirt and blouse, and she has pale skin." I described. "Yes...yes...this is her?" He showed a picture of her. I nodded. I WILL POST PART FOUR NEXT RES LATER! HOW WAS IT??? THX FOR READING!

    As seen through the eyes of a national leader who admires him

    Now in a new edition which includes Fidel Castro's speech on the return of Che's remains to Cuba 30 years after his assassination in Bolivia in 1967, Che: A Memoir By Fidel Castro is a classic political memoir and biography of revolutionary and intellectual Che Guevara. Che: A Memoir By Fidel Castro is not structured like a standard biography chapters jump back and forth through time, reflecting on key events in Che's political life, his implacable struggle for transformation, his martyrdom, and his legacy. An inset section of black-and-white photographic plates round out this unique appraisal of an an complex revolutionary figure (whose impact continues to inspire men and woman to political resistance and activism long after his own death), as seen through the eyes of a national leader who admires him. Students of Che's live and work would be well advised to visit the Ocean Press website for a complete listing of all their Che Guevara related titles.
