6/23    Werher von Braun, Nazi, SS, overseer of Dora slave factory,
        is an American hero because of his contribution to
        Saturn V. What is wrong with America?
        \_ Is this worse or better than Gerald Ford pardoning
           Nixon for FuckYouAmericaGate?
        \_ "Hero" is a strong word. "Useful" would have been a
           better word. Had he not been so "useful," he'd have
           most certainly ended up at the end of a rope. Operation
           Paperclip demonstrated some insane "enemy-of-my-enemy"
           tendencies.
        \_ I'm still waiting for GERMAN JOHN to respond to this.
        \_ von Braun is DIRECTLY responsible for killing 3000
           Londoners and destroying countless property with his
           V2 rocket development. America looked the other way
           for his crime. Fuck you America.
           \_ Was it technically a war crime bombing London?  How was it
              compared to Drisen and Hiroshima?  I think Drisden was a
              transportation hub for German troops while Hiroshima had some
              industrial complex manufacturing military machinary, or something
              like that.
              \_ The bombings of Dresden and Hiroshima were also war crimes,
                 but the victors write the history books.
           \_ Hrm. If von Braun can be blamed for his rockets being used to
              kill all of these people, shouldn't Mikhail Kalashnikov be
              tried as a war criminal? By your logic, Smith & Wesson are
              liable for any crime involving their pistols. von Braun's
              oversight of the Dora slave factory is a much more direct
              crime.

4/10    Is it just me, or it seems really ironic that a bunch of iconic
        monopolists in the Guilded Age funded a bunch of academic institutions
        through their philanthropies and those institutions later on produced
        famous academics that are highly critical of their benefactors
        and attack the ideals on which those monopolists based their
        philosophy on?

10/1    It costs $500,000 USD to rape a child:
        http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/lanow/2009/10/roman-polanski-paid-samantha-geimer-601583-in-civil-settlement-of-sexual-assault.html
        \_ "Geimer, now a mother of four, has said repeatedly and publicly
           that she thinks Polanski was treated unfairly and expressed a desire
           for the case to be resolved without prison time."
           So she thinks he didn't commit a crime but she wants him to pay her?

8/12    Thanks for destroying the world's finest public University!

        \_ Why not raise tuition? At private universities, students generate
           revenue. Students should not be seen as an expense. UC has
           been a tremendous bargain for most of its existence. It's time
           to raise tuition to match the perceived quality of the
