We must must be careful defining what is Genocide and what is a massacre, a civil war.

There are very specific point for definingn those other type of killings.

[But nowhere have I found first hand direct evidence that Hitler was taking amphetamines or aother drugs.]

There's a TV show called 'High Hitler' where they talk about this.

The doctor on that TV show wrote a book. This may be the book but I'm not sure and haven't read it:

The Medical Casebook of Adolf Hitler

I got the impression watching this TV show that Hitler was receiving methamphetamine injections.

Haig was briefly a candidate in '88, but by then he had friends in neither party. Nor, for that matter, in the armed forces. I think he said, "As of now, I'm in charge here [@the White House]," after Reagan was shot. Someone asked, he answered, & no one ever let him forget it. My view is that these days anyone roundly despised by both major poli parties & the powerbrokers & ridiculed by the media can't be all bad.

The doctor that helped his mother was very kind to her, so when Dr Bloch asked to be helped to get out of Germany he was helped by Hitler to do so. He was even escorted to the border. I wonder how this man felt about having been given this exception as a Jew?

What was the name of Hitler doctor while in power? Was it Morrel always? Or he could have several to get whatever sedative and medicine he cared for?
What is wrong with this question?

>>>While the Soviet Revolution welcomed Jews they had to be atheist.<<<

Stalin started pogroms in the USSR, but by then the Revolution was long over & Jews were too worldly for Stalin. I've read recently that Lenin & Trotsky anticipated socialist revolutions thruout Europe, & when those failed to happen, Lenin went ahead w/ his socialist plan in Russia, much to the chagrin of Trotsky, who realized the single socialist state must become secretive & repressive: no one must know that socialism wasn't the rallying cry everywhere.

>>>William Rogers was a "provocatuer" <<<

I think it was Roger Williams: that fast typing again. I didn't know Touro was long gone from RI until the missus & I visited the Museum of American Jewish History in Philly: Touro was a British loyalist & got bounced outta RI & then outta NYC. He died in Jamaica, in 1783.

No, I really don't know the political position of these women; just a sense that maybe the women can do a better job than the men have been doing. Didn't know it had a nameGynecoracy. Maybe my view comes from sitting in on Psch and polisci lectures where the female lecturers were much better than the male lecturers. Maybe from watching too much TV where the women are the smart in charges and he men jerks.

Great point on colonoscopies. Point blank you don't feel what they are going to do, it is over quite soon and it is good news that they find benign polyps. Those if left behind can and do become cancerous.
There should be no shame, doctors are in use of treating all parts of our bodies > Better safe a,dn ashamed fora few minutes, than death/

Also there is a vaccines for shingles. If you don't want a recurrence get the vaccine. Being older can make you have that childhood illness again in the form of shingles.

Great thanks for the info.

Don't forget to eat 2 or 3 almonds every day for the anti cancer effect.

I learned this because my mom got shingles and I then got the vaccine. Get it!

I just found out that I have Macular degeneration in one eye. They promise new medications in the future and this just started. There is nothing but Vitamin C with Lutein- and pray that they find the medications. Obviously, this develops slowly and I pray those medications do come. Meanwhile, I just continue with my life as is.

AGAIN ,WHAT IS WRONG WITH THIS POST!

>>We must must be careful defining what is Genocide and what is a massacre, a civil war.<<

I've always wondered why some groups get so rabid on the definitions. For instance, the Turks and the Armenians. I mean, the Turks have threatened to leave NATO if the word 'genocide' is tossed around too cavalierly by other members!!
I guess the issue is, when the accusation is leveled that the act occurred by a domestic Army against its own citizenry. The Turks are having no part of the idea that the Ottomans were not good shepherds of its own citizenry. And to be fair, one of the reasons the Ottomans stuck around so long, is they were very pragmatic and masterful, in terms of ethnic groups managing their own affairs. So, to think they suddenly decided to exterminate the Armenians, is counter-intuitive. But I've never passed judgement, because the two sides differ so wildly in their account of events. And the calendar of events and the geography of events, can support either side.
OTOH, look at Germany. They don't bristle at the charge. Well, maybe because of the mountain of physical evidence. But I also think part of it is, they were never doing it to 'Germans'. So, in their mind, what they did was sinful, but not in an unpardonable way. To them, there were intolerable foreigners in their midst.

Far Lefkas:

Why do think was Trotsky killed by Stalin's forces in Mexico? he was not a very nice person anyway.
The point was that Lenin talked of "a vanguard,"= a group of intellectuals leading the Revolutions, while Marx and Rosa Luxemburg and Trotsky himself, talked of the uprising of the masses.
Lenin never believed in that uprising and he went ahead and did his revolution in Russia, yes to Trotsky's chagrin, but know that it was thanks to the Germans that Lenin arrived there. he was in exile. The Germans wanted just one front to fight in the Fist world War, hence the Treaty of Brest Litovsk.

Yes, I know there is a singer WITH THAT NAME! Yes fast typing.

Thank you rRo the correction!
This last detail of Touro I did not know, because George Washington went to visit Touro Synagogue when he was trying to unite the states. Thank you for this information. Yet, the letter of Washington to Touro is to be cherished.

A TROLL IS VOTING HERE!

He actually recited a chain of command. President, VP, Sec of State. VP's out of town, so I'm the guy. Which is wrong according to the Constitution!! I don't how you could believe for a millisecond we'd go from 'elected guy', to 'elected guy', to 'appointee' within our system.
Now I was in the Army, and I know that even Generals don't know a thing about the Constitution. Because there are so many exceptions to it in the Military Justice system. But the American public simply can't imagine that a 4 star general wouldn't know how the country is governed. It came across as a power grab or a coup, which is silly in our system. But it came across that way. And you know us, we've never seen a conspiracy theory we didn't like. In two days, it would be Haig that hired Hinckley in an abortive coup attempt. Oliver Stone may actually make a movie that tells it that way.<g>

Actually. I have had many more women professors that I consider jealous, competitive and not helpful,
This is the legacy of being a minority in terms of politics and the the method of divide and conquer. This is the failure of feminism women could not unite to make it work as it should.
Personally, I found male professors much more kinder to my endeavors, may be even patronizing if you want, but definitely better than women who had their advancement as a priority in to their sorority more than letting another woman come in.

So I say, my best professor was a man who told me to go to diplomatic history and this is what I do. I adore him.
What can I tell you now, is that my dissertation is on hold and it is not a man who is holding it up.
Yet, I am going to find a way around this issue to finish my degree. I trust men will help me best.

I know this is going to shock you, but the Russians have a very different account of these events. I even forget how it goes, because it's a very convoluted reasoning of what happened and why.

Gregory:

When Robert Lemkin made his definition of Genocide, he was thinking on this based on the Armenian Genocide. The it was applied, too, to Hitlerism and became part of the documents that came out in 1948 with the declaration of Human Rights and the Declaration against Genocide.

Hitler himself made a point of saying: who remembers the Armenians?

I went through a hold-out prof over my dissertation at JHU in 1965. The best advice I got to relieve my anxiety was to check around because he did this on most dissertation committees he sat on.

Do you mean when someone tries to get a PhD the professors have to vote to give it to you and one of them was a dissenter ?

Jeedgr says:
depends on the school, butt at JHU it had to be five faculty all accepting it. Usually a "conditional" means that you get your thesis back with comments and a need to re-wrrite. The six or eight years I taught afterwards I would advise my doctoral students to be able to complete the following phrase in eight words or less "My thesis is ......".

More back to Hitler and thesis's. Woodrow Wilson did his Doctoral at JHU basically on world government or something. Hitler's was "Mein Kampf". I am afraid they never outgrew their thesis. Maybe we should require all U.S.Presidential Candidates to spend a couple of weeks in seclusion writing their "Mein Kampf" thesis. I understand from reading "Rise and Fall" that Hitler had ouside contacts during his years in prision.
