Grab them by the humidor.

"...a temple to....underpaying labor--literally everything Che stood against."Yeah, Che didn't believe in paying labor at all. Why hire when you can enslave?
Che also stood for firing squads, which he commanded and ordered to shoot children. Not a bad guy to be against really.
I got a Bucky Badger hat and a book about Barry Alvarez. A Badgertastic Christmas.
Trump is as much a revolutionary as was Che but far less violent.
... underpaying labor ...I presume all Politicos eschew goods made in China.
Oh no! Now I wish I'd voted for Hillary.....
Is it news that Trump will do pretty much anything for money?If you're not sure about that, I refer you to Wrestlemania 23 from 2006.Just think if that had gone the other way, we might now have President-Elect Vince McMahon, with Lind McMahon as First Lady instead of heading the Small Business Administration.
A story about Che Guevara while we are drinking our coffee....no kids this year. So I am bored waiting for the Skype session with the kids after they open presents.My Dad's family lived in Mexico from the late 40's through the late 60's. They were legal residents and my Grandfather was a representative of the US Government dealing with the outbreak of hoof and mouth disease in Mexico. Trying to keep it from getting exported to the US. Living in Mexico City they mingled with a rather rarefied atmosphere of diplomats, expats, wealthy Mexicans....among which at that early time was Dr. Che Guevara.I remember my Aunt and Grandmother discussing him in the mid 60's when we were visiting in Mexico. By then they had move to a resort area, a house in Tequisquiapan and still had the apartment in the City.Previously in his incarnation as "Dr. Guevara", he would also show up and mingle with the crowd at the various parties, events, university social meetings etc. His mission at that time was to try and raise money for a medical group or clinic that the was trying to establish somewhere in Central America. (Remember I was a kid so my memories of this story's details are a bit vague. But the asking for money for his cause is firm). He got many donations because the people felt his cause was worthy. However, he just wouldn't stop and became a pest at the parties, asking for more money and worse....getting you trapped in a corner and going off into his monologues and diatribes about ..whatever. My Aunt who was out of college at the time, though he was handsome but very boring.It got to the point that when my Aunt or Grandmother would see him, they would go....paraphrasing..."Oh, crap! Here comes Dr. Che. Quick. Hide. Let's go get another drink and try to ditch him." He was the turd in the punch bowl and eventually people avoided his annoying presence. He eventually disappeared from the "Cocktail Scene" and people figured he went to his clinic or whatever in Central America.Imagine my relatives' surprise when suddenly Dr Guevara was a revolutionary figure in the news and famous in the Cuban Revolution. Wow! Look it is Dr. Che. We wondered what happened to the little prick (paraphrasing again but pretty close to the gist of their conversations). They were amazed.A different view of Che Guevara. The giant nerd and bore at the party that no one wants to deal with.Merry Christmas :-D
Thank you, DBQ, for the anecdote! I'd love to relate it to my brother, who idolized Guevara [named his son Che], but he's not speaking to me.
Che's face belongs on the bottom of a chamber pot, or at least a spittoon.

It's great! I'm all for wealthy capitalists parting socialist fools from their money.
Do hipsters still name their dogs and cats Che (as if it were an original thing) ?
Che cigar boxes. What's next, lamp shades made of human skin?
