  • I apparently did miss it. In fact, I did not even see the word "Bush" in "it". Is the word Bush there in TorgoX's post? Or might TorgoX be concerned about the balance of payments and profligate spending by the US?

    You tell me. Or maybe TorgoX sneakily changed his posting. Maybe I need to check the Google cache.

    Help me here, maybe I missed it.

    And I even looked at the links TorgoX cited, rather than just looking at what he wrote and what he quoted. Mr. Buffett did not appear to use the word "Bush" eit
    • Is it possible that you are putting words into his post that are not there?

      Not only is it possible, it is common [perl.org].

      Might you be a little oversensitive about something?

      You can tell if he yawns or claims you are boring [perl.org] him. (Something that can be done by simply presenting facts)

      And, if you aren't careful, he'll start resorting to personal attacks [perl.org].
      • Thanks for your comments and links, phillup. But in all the excitement of you and pudge going to the races, pudge might have forgotten to comment on my original post.

        I don't post too often. I guess it makes each one seem precious. Maybe not precious, but thoughtful. Well, maybe not thoughtful, but rare.

        pudge sure is a damn good perl dude. I wonder if a damn good perl dude could put up a meta-page of when torgox mentions pudge, and when pudge mentions torgox. I tried googling:

        +torgox +pudge site:per
        • How many left-wing racists can I name?

          Help me out here... anyone?


          I can name a bunch. Start with some of the communist leaders of past and present, in the Soviet Union, China, North Korea, Cuba. Che Guevara is a good example.
          • Oh Lord, pudge. I really don't have time for this. But I am only human, so just this once on this thread I will let you draw me in to a response with a turn-around time of less than 8 hours. (how you manage to keep on top of this, I have no idea!)

            Thanks for your response to my request for a citation of a left-wing racist. You chose to cite Che Guevara of the many left-wing racists you claim to be aware of. Leaving aside the issue of whether we can agree that all leaders of communist countries are actually leftists, I thought it useful to google: "che guevara" racism .

            Amoung the earliest results was a link to a site, which said:

            "Che Guevara - Revolutionary Fighter

            "SHOOT, COWARD, you are only going to kill a man." According to legend, these were the last words of Che Guevara, just before his execution at the hands of the Bolivian army, who were in league with the CIA, on October 9, 1967, aged 39.

            Thirty-five years after his death, Che lives on in the minds of young people struggling and fighting against the same inequalities that he dedicated his life to getting rid of - poverty, racism, and ultimately capitalism and imperialism."

            Now, if you want to continue this thread and wait 8 or more hours for any further response from me, I am hopeful that you will educate me (hopefully with links, unless you personally knew Mr. Guevara) as to why you believe Che Guevara to be a racist, because I will certainly concede that he is a leftist, though I am unaware that he was ever the leader of a communist country. (google "Castro").

            But, I would also like to call to your attention that you still have not commented on my initial post in this thread in any substantive way, and I also look forward to you applying your perl skills to a comparison of torgox postings mentioning pudge, and pudge posting mentioning torgox. Such perl wizardly is honestly beyond me.

            • Leaving aside the issue of whether we can agree that all leaders of communist countries are actually leftists

              If they are communists, by definition, yes, they are, unless you have some new definition of "leftist" that I've never heard of.

              "Thirty-five years after his death, Che lives on in the minds of young people struggling and fighting against the same inequalities that he dedicated his life to getting rid of - poverty, racism, and ultimately capitalism and imperialism."

              And that's bullshit. Guevara
