Due to Ning (our Web hosting company) being bought recently from the ashes of Mode Media we often experience 500 connection errors. Our apologies but these errors are out of our control. Hopefully, this will improve as the new company gains experience. Regards, AU

True, Tom. Self-confident people don't yell at others or force them into accepting their point. But the emotionally-insecure guy has to for fear of failure! That's why the religious fall into eternal despotism!

Alexis, I saw the term 'strongman' used to describe a dictator many times before I learned it was a media lie.

Dictators are weak; fhey need violence to get and keep power. One of those ancient Romans said violence arises from weakness.

Monty Don in Cuba. Urban food growing.

Comment by Alexis Habiyaremye on November 27, 2016 at 3:53am
Thanks Tom for teaching me. I had trouble with the term. About dictatorship, you may need to come to the third world to see how Bush was one of the "weakest dictators" if ever.
Comment by Tom Sarbeck on November 27, 2016 at 3:31am

"GOP" stands for the Republican Party's informal name, Grand Old Party, Alexis. I don't know its origin.

Before our Civil War, anti-slavery members of the dying Whig Party, one of them Abraham Lincoln, and two anti-slavery parties joined to form the Republican Party.

America a dictatorship?

Not in the way Nazi Germany or the Soviet Union was, but during the 2001-2009 Bush presidency, one party controlled the government's three branches and a lawless attitude prevailed.

Comment by Alexis Habiyaremye on November 27, 2016 at 12:53am

He may fail to fail to abide by all due bureaucracies, but the US systems are so strong that no one can behave as a dictator for a term. Unless of course we redefine "dictatorship".
By the way, does GOP stand for Government Official Publishing in your comment, Tom?

Comment by Tom Sarbeck on November 26, 2016 at 11:57pm
Trump calls Castro a brutal dictator?
Does that imply that he won't be a dictator?

It implies nothing about GOP evangelicals.
Comment by Alexis Habiyaremye on November 26, 2016 at 11:26pm
There have been many victims of the cold war. Castro may be one.

The USA have their case to deal with.
Comment by Stephen on November 26, 2016 at 2:14pm

Free Education, Free Healthcare with one of the best healthcare systems in the world. Dictatorship should be made of sterner stuff. its funny he and the Cuban revolution still has many supporters around the world. I believe that the American embargo was the main reason why the economy didn't improve the way they wanted. but they where still much better off than most of Latin America.

Remember the US supported far worse dictators in Latin America. The Cubans had the misfortune to be socialist the US wouldn't stand for that.

no other leader has survived so many assassination attempts most of them by the CIA and émigré mafia.
