Gary Says, "Everyone is in Denial." He says we Don't Get It. He says it's because we don't want to.

We're too fat and happy. So we're all going to die because we didn't believe him. Serves us right, doesn't it?

He claims he's a historian. But he's not.

If he were a historian he would know of another person who said the same things.

Adolph Hitler.

Hitler vowed to destroy Germany in the flames of his own death. He said the Germans weren't worthy of him. They lost the war because they didn't believe him.

Hitler was in Denial.

He succeeded at first because other nations weren't as prepared for war as Germany was. So he came to think he knew about war. He thought his generals Didn't Get It. He thought they were too fat and happy. He called them cowards.

But the generals knew when they began to lose the war. They couldn't deny the millions of deaths. Hitler could. He didn't have to face millions of wives and mothers who lost husbands and sons.

In the end Hitler hid away in his bunker. He gave orders to move armies and counter attack. But the armies didn't exist and the attacks never happened. He cursed his generals, his army, and his people for not winning the war.

He finally faced the truth when the Russian armies began to pound Berlin. But he never admitted the truth to his people. He hid away in his bedroom and held a pity party before his death. Too bad he had to take millions of people with him.

Gary is in Denial, too.

His troops are deserting in increasing numbers. The news continues to get better for his enemies. Will Gary admit when his war is lost?

Hitler. North. Denial.

Tell me, Gary--you're the "historian." Who said "Those who cannot remember the past are doomed to repeat it?"

Who isn't in denial about certain things? History does repeat itself.

Hey Quoter... was Santayana born in a noncompliant hospital or did he stumble onto the Way Back Machine?

The State Dept. and UK FOC are announcing their recommendations for foreign countries, 53 of which appear to be in trouble, OMB and Horn have released reports, the Coast Guard is denying vessels entry, there is concern about our military facitlites overseas, D/FW still has 30 of 108 systems to finish, 28 nukes still need work, financial markets are responding, Atlanta lied about switching its systems over, companies are stockpiling materials...
