    It's being reported that Ross Perot has succumbed to cancer. 89 years old.
    While some blame him for Slick Willy's election because he split the Repub vote, I always admired him.
    One helluva businessman, and one helluva salesman. Start as a salesman for IBM. IBM capped his commission at $1M per year. After a few months he exceeded that, they wouldn't pay more so he resigned and started EDS.
    When the Shah was forced out many of his employees in Iran on a contract job were taken hostage. He hired retired Army COL Bull Simons who lead two teams over there and got them back.

    I don't mind being called far right.
    I have been right so far.

    Read the book; saw the movie starring Burt Lancaster and Richard Crenna. Movie closely followed the book so must have been mostly true and accurate.

    The article discusses where the author embellished or skewed the facts.
    (Daniel Pipes is reliable, in fact, he is almost right wing,
    and therefore hated by the Left, and the Islamists.)

    I have seen some articles that said Perot split the D and R vote about evenly. Makes sense. A lot of Ds voted for Trump, though they probably won't admit it. There may be a chance of a third party yet, with the polarization found in the two major parties. Until one takes off, however, the Ds are going to continue suicide runs with their leftist policies.

    I troll some hard core liberal forums. You're right. They're eating themselves alive. Say anything about AOC, you're a racist. Say anything about Sanders, you're crazy.

    They're splitting up into smaller groups. Different camps. Which are all attacking each other. "If you vote for X", "You're voting for Trump". "You're a Russian troll".

    It's hilarious.

    That is pretty hard core Left.

    Just make sure it is pretty hard to trace your pseudonyms on
    those forums to anything you do in real life or any thing on
    the Net that you can't just kill off and walk away from.

    Seeing where this nation was headed, after I moved up into
    the mountains, I got a different email address that I use for
    all social networks and forums, in case hostiles manage to
    get my info off out of some forum database. Some (all?)
    of the other forum managers, owners and moderators are
    Leftists, as well, and I wouldn't put it past them to Dox
    conservatives.

    There is a war brewing between Christians/conservatives and
    the Leftist/Islamist insurgency in this country, and the Left
    knows it. They have no intention of fighting fair, and so,
    will used any means, such as creating social networks
    to harvest personal data for later used against us.

    I'd say it's more a war between western civilization and the opposite. As your people have created, invented, and built everything from the harnessing of electricity to the computer. From medical advancement to space travel.

    As the Marxist would say, "You didn't build that"....."So give it to me or Ill take it."
