Very nice. Mr. Hitler should have *most definitely* pursued a career as a landscape painter.

Were it not for World War I, an exercise in idiocy for Europe's rulers, he very likely would have. Not only did ten to twelve million people die in what most thought would be a short and chivalrous exercise, but the war and its resolution both permitted the establishment of Communism and guaranteed another war.

Europe had enjoyed forty years of peace and prosperity. There was no rational reason for a war.

Exactly..
That's why American's are considered the imbeciles of the so-called civilized world. If it's not on E! or FOX News, then it didn't happen. LOL

It *is* on Fox News, and it *isn't* on your beloved CNN, MSNBC, or NPR.

Ok.. So.. Again, you take the signature off that painting.. The first thing that went through my mind when I saw it was "Eagles Nest".. Am I right about that?

I would not have known, ever, that Hitler painted it.

No, you are not. It's a watercolor of Schloss Neuschwanstein (New Swanstone Castle), one of Germany's most popular tourist attractions. King Ludwig II of Bavaria builit it.

They're doing some stuff wrong, but at least they got some stuff exactly right.

I am glad they made the decision to pull the item AFTER customer's complained about it.
Having worked in the WalMart warehouse the comparison of being in a work camp fits.

It did. No question.

My grandfather was sent first to Neuengamme, and then to Dachau... along with his brothers. We come from a French Catholic family.

In fact, he was taken away just a few meters from where I'm sitting as I write this.

It wasn't just the Jews.

Just sayin'....

And some people don't know that goyim were sent to Dachau too... goyim like my French Catholic grandfather, his brothers, and a significant number of men from our village.

Poles constituted the largest ethnic group in the camp, followed by Russians, French, Yugoslavs, Jews, and Czechs.
