    wasn't he rather short and fat?

    I don't see being ruthless the same as being a badass.

    yeah...Idi Amin and Saddam Hussein were both ruthless...but I wouldn't consider either one of them a badass.
    The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.

    An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last.

    Several times over the last few days Coronado I have attempted you to ratchet down your vitriol against me but you just keep on going and going. The last few posts by you show this. if you have some personal problem with me please PM me so we can discuss this like adults and not waste others time and space in various threads.

    thank you.
    stop screwing with peoples threads, and MAYBE they'll tone it done. Keep your same nonsense up, and you won't have much fun being on the ignore list of 95% of the posters here.

    Idi Amin was pretty badass. You'd have to be badass to declare yourself the King of Scotland. That's like calling yourself the King of Fiji or some other non-existent place. Not to mention he ate people, married 6 women, divorced 3, had 30-50 kids, and managed to kill hundreds of thousands while most in the media simply regarded him as a 'clown'. Takes a pretty bad-ass dude to pull it all off.

    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK

    Polk. An unapologetic racist. Disliked even by his political allies. His sole goal was to extend America's territorial control across the continent mostly at Mexico's expense. He achieved all his political goals in just one term. That's badass.

    unapologetic racists are even more badass.

    Last time I looked, I had the same rights here as the other posters. What you consider as "screwing with peoples threads" is what I consider my right to participate.

    There is none so dangerous to the True Believer as the non-believer who tells the truth.

    There was some "f-you" for the Brits as well. It wasn't all about Mexico.

    #1 Most BadAss President.. Theodore Roosevelt

    Checking Teddy Roosevelt's resume is like reading a How-To guide on ass-kicking manliness. He was a cattle rancher, a deputy sheriff, an explorer, a police commissioner, the assistant Secretary of the Navy, the governor of New York, and a war hero.

    Out of all of his jobs, hobbies and passions, Roosevelt always had a special spot in his heart for unadulterated violence. In 1898, Roosevelt formed the first U.S. Volunteer Cavalry Regiment, known as the Rough Riders. Most people already know of the Rough Riders and their historic charge up San Juan Hill, but few know that, since their horses had to be left behind, the Riders made this charge entirely on foot. You just could not stop this man from violencing the hell out of a San Juan Hill.
