Missed noting the 60th anniversary of Sir Winston Churchill's famous speech at Westminster College in Missouri. He had apparently snubbed the smug all-knowing eastern liberal establishment, more than a few who were probably still in the pay of the KGB and GRU, to give his speech in Harry Truman's home state. Just as he had warned of the dangers of fascism in the 1930s, he warned of the threat from the soviet union.

Churchill was hardly warning against a liberal invasion. He was warning upon the dictatorship soviet threat. I know you like to confuse liberals with soviets to spew your extreemist rhetoric but at least have the mind to look up the facts first before you spew.

The Wall fell, because any Wall can divide Nations, Cultures, ethnic groups, and pattners.
