INTERESTING: Hamlet revenged his father too  

Man who tracked Che for CIA awarded $1 billion in lawsuit
By Luisa Yanez | Miami Herald

In a strange twist of fate in 1963, he was contacted by the CIA to help track Guevara.

Leading a squad of three Cuban exiles into the Bolivian jungle, Villoldo helped track down Guevara for the CIA.

”There was a certain amount of satisfaction in burying the man who I felt was responsible for my father’s death, ” he said.

There’s something Shakespearian in this story. Or “Godfatherian”! (Is there such a word? From the Godfather movie. Where Michael Corleone revenges himself.)

Kill a man and you better wipe out his whole family. Eventually his son, or sones, will dance on your grave.

Force begets force.

What goes around, comes around.

Riding a pale horse?

LIBERTY: Parents; not gooferment

Hands off our children!

The real issue is when can the state can intervene into family issues and how “neglect” is defined?

Does a 13-year-old boy, with parental agreement, have the right to refuse chemotherapy?

If not, why does a 13-year-old girl, without parental consent (or notification), have the right to birth control or an abortion? In reality, her right to abortion is subtle state permission for her to have sex – although sex with a minor is illegal.

Yet the same girl can’t get an aspirin from the school nurse without parental consent.

Perhaps that’s to make the parents feel they have some authority.

I’m hard pressed to take the control of children from parents and give it to the gooferment.

“Here we have one of the largest media companies in the U.S. now not only refusing to allow news coverage of a vitally important national question being asked by millions of Americans, but one that won’t even permit the purchase of space to raise the question,” said Farah. “What is the value of a First Amendment in a country when this kind of self-censorship is at work – self-censorship specifically geared to stifle inquiry and debate about the most powerful person in the country.”

Be neat if this was one every website!

Here’s my modest contribution.

Shouldn’t we have an anti-trust investigation?

LIBERTY: Really READ the bills act

Seed: Democrats Hire Speed Reader To Read Cap And Trade Bill Aloud – Levin Fan (Source: The Washington Post)

One sign that long days of debating may have gotten to the members of the House Energy and Commerce Committee: they were briefly transfixed by a demonstration of speed-reading.

Does anyone else find this strangely upsetting?

DownsizeDC ( champions the idea of “read the bills”. The congresscritters makes a joke out of the idea of “reading” whatever the hell they’re voting on. It’s a joke. AND, the joke’s on us!
