ZenTiger You think that's stupid?

A man walked into a Chicago bank and handed a teller a note that read "Be Quick Be Quit (quiet). Give your cash or I'll shoot."

He got about $400 from the teller but mistakenly left half of his note, written on his October payslip, behind.

Investigators found the other half outside the bank's front doors, complete with his name and address.

Well, Che Guevara wrote copious notes on just how brutal he was, and signed his name to it.

You think that's stupid?

The left wing intelligensia (such as it is) and gay groups around the world are intent on idolizing him anyway.

Well, let's wait and see what happens with Steven Soderbergh's latest Che film, which as far as I can tell may be a rehash of previous movies he did on Che stitched into one big one [any-one know].

Soderbergh fuels the inevitable debate:

Che's "dream of a classless society, a society that isn't built on the profit motive, is still relevant. The arguments still going on are about his methodology."

Yes indeed. Arguments abound on the internet on Che, the nice guy marxist revolutionary versus Che the terrorist committed to starting world war III. We are tempted to forget that "methodology" is simply another word for murder.

Soderbergh has a fairly good reputation for movie making, and has apparently portrayed Che realistically along the lines of ruthless rather than idealistic.

This movie may well fire the ongoing debate on those that criticise the western way of life to the point that all other alternatives are excusable because "the west" made them that way, and those that see the dangers in glorifying Che because the revolutionary idea of being anti-establishment offer a better way of life once the blood is mopped from the floors.

It doesn't help that blood gets spilled no matter what we do. Whilst we get our heads around the latest events in the Gaza, perhaps we could at least agree that Che Guevara represents a "disproportionate response" to whatever the problem is.

Checkout the Che Guevara merchandise at The Che Store. Some people want to advertise their stupidity.

And guaranteed that those wishing to give che another chance are all leftists. It's only them in the west who are fascinated by mass-murdering scumbags. No, they ain't stupid.
