4.0 out of 5 stars Solid Boot for the Price, February 5, 2014

This review is from: Dingo Men's Dean Boot (Apparel)
Considering the price, it is really excellent. This is the boot I choose to wear. It will last long enough for a few heel and sole replacements just fine. If it gets seriously damaged for some reason, it's no tragedy--just get a new pair! For this kind of price, I'm going with Dingo.

These particular pipes are of uneven quality (sometimes the pieces don't fit tightly). The paint on mine has bubbled up from heat and doesn't look very good anymore. On the other hand, super long stem makes for a smoke with an attitude.

An excellent study by a true scholar. Exceptionally insightful and competent. Written long ago, yet stands the test of time.

Just slapped this bike onto my 1995 XLH1200. Fantastic lines. Most beautiful solo seat I've ever seen on a Sporty. The price is really good for this kind of a seat. Don't plan on touring with this seat--this thing will serve you well in urban brawling with enough comfort for goofing around and the looks to make your bike stand out.

Lead weights are smaller and WAY better for motorcycle wheels than the dumb steel ones. The box is crammed with TONS of weights, and they are highly polished. Beautiful! If you need them black, just spray paint them. GREAT VALUE!

5.0 out of 5 stars PERFECT solution for motorcycles., January 25, 2014

So you hate the stock reflectors but wish to keep the cops out of your hair and/or retain visibility at night--you HAVE to buy these! I have a 1995 Sportster 1200, and I put a red one on my swingarm and an amber on on the front fender support just behind the forks. You would really never notice them during the day unless you are looking for them, but they really pop well at night when a light hits them. They are so small that you will be able to fit them anywhere, and the extras in the pack mean that you can screw it up and try again. Less than $5? Buy them now!


Die ideologischen grundlagen des bolschewismus (Vol-1): marxismus, leninismus, stalinismus (German Edition)
Die ideologischen grundlagen des bolschewismus (Vol-1): marxismus, leninismus, stalinismus (German Edition)
by Heinrich. Härtle
Edition: Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars National Socialism vs. Communism, August 25, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
It is hard to give a rating to such a book. This book was written as a summary and critique of the Bolshevist ideology of the Soviet Union, and it was written in 1944 by one of the most important intellectual Nazi ideologues. He was member #60,398 of the Nazi Party. In 1928 he joined the Sturmabteilung (Brownshirts), and in 1942 he became a Sturmbannführer in the SA (equivalent to a Major). He played an important role in linking Nietzsche ideologically to National Socialism.

It is fascinating to witness this ideological war between the Nazis and the Communists. Both had one thing in common: They both saw people first and foremost as members of groups rather than as individuals. For the Communists, it was all about in which of the warring classes one found oneself. For the Nazis, it was all about one's racial identity.

Härtle berates the Marxists for thinking that class identity can produce a true culture. Only racial identity can produce a true culture.

A couple of choice quotations that I have selected and translated myself:

This one I think has a ring of truth to it: "Since `Bolschevism' doesn't always sound sufficiently scientific, they increasingly adopted the very learned-appearing name of `Dialectical Materialism.' In the USSR, this name is supposed to play the role that the scholastic philosophy--Thomism--plays in the theology of the churches. Dialectical Materialism became the theology of Marxism, the ruling fundamental concept of research as well as teaching, of the university as well as the academy, of the institutes and the libraries."

But then things get serious: "Marx displays the following entirely typical Jewish traits: First, the instinct toward economic activity; second, a parasitic-plagiaristic foundation; and third, a destructive and annihilating effect on non-Jewish people."

Further: "Only the racial investigation solves the final riddles of this unholy development [Marxism]. [...] Jewish is the parasitic exploitation of the intellectual achievement of others, and Jewish is the intellectual misrepresentation of original discoveries."

"When we briefly confront, in the following, the main thesis of his [Marx's] theory, it is not in order to refute Marx `scientifically,' which presupposes to take him scientifically seriously, but rather to characterize him as a Jewish intellect."

And it goes on. This book is important insofar as it gives the reader a profound insight into the ideological nature of the battle between National Socialism and Communism, and it is for this reason that I recommend it to you.

This pipe is absolutely beautiful, it fits in the hand like art, its lines are graceful, it has a large bowl, and the price is really what earns five stars from me. I can hardly believe that you can get a pipe of this quality and beauty for this kind of price.

This is such an elegant and functional pipe for the price. It comes with an excellent three-way tool and decent stand. I give it five stars based on the awesome value. Mr. Brog gets this pipe to you very quickly. I am now a Brog enthusiast.

Tough pant and the fifth pocket is perfect for slim electronic devices. Belt loops are a bit narrow. Words nineteen and twenty.
