Quote of the Day

“Barack Obama is not an idiot. He is a brilliant orator who exudes charm and arouses near-worship from his host of giddy, hypnotized supporters. He is also a committed socialist and a talented salesman for his brand of Marxist snake oil. Beware of camels bearing gifts, and politicians promising utopia.” —Michael Reagan

In the 1930's there was another Socialist gifted with the power of great oratory, that swayed the emotions of his fellow citizens, promising Utopia, and leading them to follow him to the gates of HELL itself :


I'm not saying Obama is Hitler, Obama isn't nearly that intelligent or capable; that meme is the province of the Progressives; but I AM saying beware of the Golden Tongue Orator promising Utopia on Earth, lest you be fooled again.

Obama's a socialist? Hitler was a socialist? What definition are you using of social? If it comes from the party's name for itself, North Koreans, by the same logic, are democrats. If you want some solid authentic connections with Hitler, look at Bush's family:

Investigator John Loftus: "As a former federal prosecutor, I would make a case for Prescott Bush, his father-in-law (George Walker) and Averell Harriman [to be prosecuted] for giving aid and comfort to the enemy..."

Sorry to burst your bubble Karlo, but Hitler WAS a socialist. He called HIMSELF a Socialist. The Nazi party was predicated on the individual subliminating him/herself for the greater good of the State...government control in/of all aspects of life; if thats not socialism, I don't know what is.

I find the lack of real education on the Nazi period in American public education to be nothing short of criminal. We are setting ourselves up to repeat the tragedy here.

I came from a country that experienced the tragedy that was Naziism in spades; my own grandfather was sympathetic to the Nazi ideals, so don't EVEN try to tell me what Hitler was or wasn't. My family lived it and passed on the warnings so that NEVER AGAIN would it arise without a fight.

Both Obama AND Hillary are socialist in their views. "we will take from you for the common good" ring a bell? McCain isn't much better, but at least he would advance that agenda at a slower pace than either of the two "Progressive" would be candidates.

As to those "Hitler connections"..the same could be said of Lindburg, Ford, Rockefeller and a great number of other industrialists of the era. I suppose we should brand all those as Nazi fellow travelers as well.

You're confusing dictatorship with socialism. Socialism's an economic theory that affects laws about ownership. Nazi Germany definitely had plenty of private ownership and plenty of profiting large business conglomerates. If that counts as socialism, Japan and Korea must have been socialist during most of the post WWII period. That fact that a party calls itself something is absolutely meaningless. North Korea calls itself the a democratic republic after all and yet doesn't even have the faintest link to democratic ideals. The Nazis, before they killed Jews, gays, gypsies, and little old ladies who didn't raise their salute high enough, were busy killing socialists/communists of every stripe. They evidently felt that communists were the greatest threat to what they were trying to do.

Not to interrupt Karlo's ramblings, but... Delfts, you've been tagged! http://yeahrightwhatever.blogspot.com/2008/04/tagged-with-memoir.html

Yes, there was "private ownership" of industry in Nazi Germany, Karlo, BUT it was controlled in EVERY aspect by the Party; NO decisions were made by the "private owners", so it was private in name only. It was Socialism plain and simple.

EVERYTHING was done in the name of and done only by the will/control of the State. and all Socialist/Communist states end up being dictatorships, so that assertion is a straw man that shows that you really don't have a grasp of the history of every such state.

It's true that the Nazi state treated the Poles, Russians and all the other Eastern European residents initially worse than the Jews; this was because the Slavic peoples were considered as Sub-human; to be exterminated just like the Jews were, but the Jews were already under control in the German state at the time, so it was less urgent to exterminate them at the time.

Like I said Karlo, my family LIVED it, breathed it, some died under it, and in one case assisted in it; DON'T tell me what some ivory tower socialist professor claims from the perspective of dry theory, I come from a grounding in PRACTICAL experience albeit second-hand in my personal case.

I don't think I've talked much about theory. Your response to my claim that the German's initially went after socialists and communists (pretty much the same thing, at this point in history) is to conflate this with the German land grab in Poland, etc. The socialists the NAZIs initially killed as they consolidated power were pretty much all Germans. But how can this be? Does this mean that the NAZIs (socialists in your version of history) were, for some reason, most afraid of . . . socialists. Isn't this a bit odd? One rightwing meme that makes it impossible to talk about anything is this idea that everything outside of the sphere of rightwing acceptability is the same thing: socialists are the same as NAZIs which are the same as Muslims trying to resurrect the Caliphate which are the same as Sunni gangsters trying to get back into power in Iraq which are the same as American academics. When we mix so many ingredients into the same porridge, it ends up tasting a lot like stone soup.

Posted by: Karlo at April 12, 2008 02:30 PM

Funny you sould mention the equation of the Muslim Caliphate equaling the Nazis...Read history and you'll notice that the Mufti of Jeruselem WAS a Nazi collaborator. Islam is very much the same as Nazism if you substitute religious duty for the Aryan Race duties. Islamic leaders in the late 30's and 40's were very connected to the Nazi's; look at rallies in thje radical Islamic world today and you'll still see remnants of that connection... the goose step, the Roman salute, and the fanatic devotion to charismatic leaders.

Nazi's were Socialists under the definitions of the time and under the current definitions if you look at the actual results of their policies and not just the dry definitions of current academics.

And no, they didn't go after German Socialists, they went after German Communists, as they were considered collaborators with the Slavic communists, and thus anti-Aryan. You are ascribing current labels to past events and they DON'T necassarily apply. The move into Poland was for land that Hitler considered essential to the German State's future, and the fact it was occupied by Slavic people just made it more just to take, since such peoples were obviousley inferior and subject to the will of the Aryan race. You must remember that Nazi's considered themselves the forerunners of the master race on Earth, and anything they did was justified by that belief, all other peoples were merely servants to that race at best.

Lifting weights is the easiest method to build lean muscle mass and increase strength, but it can also lead to injuries if you're not careful. Here are six common reasons for weight lifting injuries, and how to avoid them.

1. Using Poor Form and Technique

Far too many people use bad kind and technique when weight lifting, and it's a common cause of injury. People perform their reps at a fast speed using much more momentum than muscle power. People heave, swing, or bounce the weight rather than lifting it.

Bad form and method often occurs when someone is using a weight that's too heavy for them to lift properly. Use a weight that challenges you, but that's not so heavy that your form and technique get sloppy. Use muscle energy, not momentum, to elevate the weight. Don't heave, swing, or bounce the bodyweight. Lift and lower the weight within a steady and controlled manner while concentrating on feeling the muscle that you're working (this is known as the mind-muscle connection).

3. Not Warming Up

You need to take time to properly warm up before strength training. Warming up will stimulate blood circulation to your muscles, increase your joint flexibility and mobility, and get you mentally prepared for your workout, all of which helps in avoiding injury. Warm up by doing a couple of minutes of light aerobic exercise and one or two light sets of each strength training exercise before using heavier weights.

3. Overtraining

Training all too often saps your energy and reduces both your muscle's and nervous system's capability to recuperate from your strength training workouts. If you're within a depleted, weakened Recumbent Exercise Bike state through overtraining, your risk associated with injury increases. You also need to realize that muscles avoid grow during training, they grow after training. Lifting weights causes microscopic tears within the muscles, and rest days enable the muscles to repair on their own, grow, and get stronger.

Training too often and never giving your muscles enough time to recover from training not only increases your risk associated with injury, it also causes muscle growth and strength increases in the future to a halt.

three. Not Listening to Your system

When lifting weights, you need to work out with a lot of intensity if you want to build muscle and increase strength. But if your exhausted and lacking energy prior to a particular weight lifting exercise, you may need to ease up on the intensity for the particular workout, or even consider no longer working out at all that day. Pushing yourself too hard when you're tired and also lacking energy increases your own risk of injury.

5. Lack of Concentration

If you are distracted, preoccupied or lackadaisical when strength training, especially when performing free weight exercises like barbell squats or dumbbell shoulder presses, you're inviting injury.

6. Bad Nutrition

Weight training and proper nutrition go hand in hand. Proper nutrition provides you with the energy you need for the weight training workouts. Without proper nutrition, you'll maintain a depleted, weakened state, and your risk of injury increases. Proper nutrition is not only necessary to fuel your workouts, it's also necessary to help you recover from your workout routines.

As you can see, avoiding weight lifting injuries is not really difficult. Just follow these guidelines and your weight training workouts will be productive and injury free of charge.
