Che Guevara was not in the Mexican Revolution

on my way to see Thieivery Corporation, I stopped for a beer. I overheard a women ask her friend, who was in a conversation with some other people, if Che Guevara was from Argentina. Now that may not be common knowledge, so it was not an big deal. But then her friend responded that maybe he was, but he had been in the Mexican Revolution!!!

This is the problem with the left. We can get out there, scream and yell, but if we don't know the facts we won't win over the majority of the country. And the facts are on our side. The MC at the Operation Cease-Fire concert talked a good game, but most of it was crap. I realize it is not easy to know what is really going on, but if you take the time to read the newspapers, and perhaps check a few other sources, you can get a solid understanding of what is really going on. And once you know the facts, you can make an articulate argument. Until then, you are just some whine kid who is simply ignored.
