I'm going to overrun an entire nation with impoverished, underpaid minions and then use them to subjugate an entire populace using ex-judice murder. And then give the whole shebang to my son. What could POSSIBLY go wrong? And history proved me right -- I'm a freaking HERO, fer chrissakes!

he would be 129 years old that day.
I'm looking for other things to celebrate now: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/October_31
Some potential choices:
1922 – Benito Mussolini is made Prime Minister of Italy
1940 – World War II: The Battle of Britain ends: The United Kingdom prevents a possible German invasion.
2011 – The global population of humans reaches seven billion. This day is now recognized by the United Nations as Seven Billion Day.
1924 – World Savings Day is announced in Milan, Italy by the Members of the Association at the 1st International Savings Bank Congress (World Society of Savings Banks).

It see,s that there can be found a reason for celebration and a reason for sadness about every day.
The facts expressed here belong to everybody. The opinions are mine.
I don’t post political comments or articles to convince those who disagree with me,
I post them so that those who might agree with such positions will know they are not alone.
Some things are opinions and can be argued - some things are facts and cannot.
Proverbs, Chapter 16 verse 9 <--- When in doubt, remember this.
