One of history's greatest heroes. We owe this man more than any word or phrase can adequately capture.


  1. I'm not a fan of Winston Churchill. Churchill was a fat fucker who bombed Dresden, submitted to the Soviets, and genocided millions of Germans and Slavs and sold millions of others into Communist slavery--but I admit this photo is cool. If only he used the gun on himself.

  2. Harsh, but semi-legit criticisms on some levels. I see him as a visionary hero, who doesn't get half the credit he deserves. His compromises weren't ideological or for lack of resolve, but rather based on the fact that Britain was literally drained and exhausted by the Second World War. FDR was always to cozy with Stalin for my taste. He saw the evils of Nazism and Communism for what they were, and refused to budge when cowards like Halifax wanted to negotiate with the Nazis. He did his best to salvage what he could from the British Empire, although the writing was on wall long before he took office.. He recognized the dark fate of the Slavs, Poles, Czechs, and Sudetenland Germans and his writings reflect regret and sadness for how they were thrown under the bus. Plus, he was one heck of wordsmith. He remains one of my personal favorites of the 20th century. Plus, he knew how to drink, smoke, dress and fight, qualities that are sadly lacking in today's world.
