    You can also sideload Calibre. It works very well as well.

    Also as far my signature goes is this any better?

    Lol, the native app looks good but... the logo needs some work!

    I used to use calibre on my desktop. It is pretty awesome maybe I should try it... but at the same time, my point is that BlackBerry should build one right in. A nice, native app.

    Sorry if I find someone supporting people being locked up for speaking freely offencive. Show me a Communist government that hasn't consistently taken away their people's human rights, freedom of speech and right to vote for their leaders?

    Communision was a good idea, in 1917.... but wake up it didn't work.

    Sorry to go off topic but I do find it extremely arrogant and ignorant for anyone to be making positive statements about Communism.

    So if I was to write I support Nazi'? (Which I don't)
    I would expect that to be deleted.

    Freedom of speech doesn't mean you can be abusive or offensive. For example if I followed you about calling you fat, that's my free speech but the law would call it harassment.

    The post didn't abuse or offend me, and I don't support communism either.
    I wouldn't expect such a "nazi" post (as written) to be deleted either, though the mods might think differently. My opinion of someone who makes such a post would change though.

    High jacking a thread doesn't make you cool or anything of sort you know...
    First let me remind you communism is an economic system just as capitalism is.
    Let me remind you as well that communism uses socialism, as a form of government as compared to democracy. Which in the end is not that great if you truly study the history of it.

    As far as communism not working and an example of it? Comrade please you are trying to use the oldest and most flawed argument against communism of all. I'll just say look at what capitalism under democracy has done. You live in an immense bubble one that has been burst again and again only to be built once more by those most benefited from it.

    Also let me remind you that Cuba is the eye sore of the capitalist pigs here up north. Why? Cuba has the best doctors and one of the best health care systems of the world period. It is also one of the only countries with the most college educated population and one with the least inequality in all the world.
    Let me remind you the economic sanctions the US has placed on Cuba have made the country so self sufficient other Latin American nations have followed suit. Only to be severely reprimanded by both World Bank, IMF and the US. The US could never allow a Communist Caribbean after all.

    Want me to keep going ?
    I bet not your brain will not allow you to verify any of this due to cognitive dissonance. So in the end I disagree, to support Communism isn't arrogant. It is but a brave struggle to truly bring justice to the people.
    If anything it is incredibly naive, arrogant and just plain ignorant to believe Capitalism with all the famine is has brought is any better. For its mistakes far out number those of Communism.
    If the capitalist are to ever apologise for the massacres under its name, slavery, environmental and human exploitation and the rape of Iranian, Afgani, Pakistani, Kurdish, Salvadorian, Vietnamese Armenian, Georgian, Albanian secularism in favor of Military or Islamist dictatorships. Only then will I ever apologise for the mistakes of socialism.
    I want change change for the better. So this thanksgiving please by all means be grateful that you live the life you do over mountains and mountains of atrocities. I on the other side will continue the people's struggle by fighting anywhere, and anytime I can.
    Long live the workers! Long live the people!!

    Sorry you're VERY misinformed.

    Communism has nothing to do with people being locked up. PEOPLE DO!

    Communism is a practice of political beliefs. Just the same as Capitalism. BOTH have their merits - Communism in countries like France allows for citizens to go to University and NOT pay extraneous exorbitant fees (Harvard is close to $300'000Us for Six Years of Law school!!). Taxes pay for all citizens to educate themselves, earn an incredible living that the education is honored and recognized almost globally, and their taxed according to their earnings in such a profession practiced based on those taxes.

    What news you've been reading the last 10 yrs has you confused over the root cause of this. This isn't WW2 where people in the world screen Commies and such.

    You have a right to your views, MD I mine, just the same as everyone else. I maybe VERY wrong or you or anyone else but let's not make generic wide statements based on what's going on in the news please.

    Let's save this for another thread or PM I'll be most willing to be educated or shown various views. Mods I'm sure are watching.

    Thanks.

    One huge difference, my leader who I vote for, will not lock me up if I speak out against them, or the country. How many Communist countries get to vote? How many Communist murdering dictators are there?

    Now you use Iraq, Afghanistan etc. As an example of the West being so bad, so do you think Iraq was better off with Sadam Hussein as the leader? He killed tens of thousands of his own people. Afghanistan was providing safe harbour for known terrorists(Al Queda) who are hated just as much by non extremist ordinary Muslims as they are in the west.

    Using the Russian invasion of Georgia as an example? Seriously? Russia IS NOT a democracy anymore, Allegations of Putin rigging elections and singers jailed for making a song showing Russia in a negative light? Please tell me how that is right. Russian invasion of Ukraine when it tried to get closer ties with the west? Defend that.

    In communist China people are made to disappear because they ask for freedom and democracy, are you supporting that?

    If you hate the west and Capitalism that much, then go live in a communist nation and try to speak your mind as you are doing here, see how long you last.

    Snowden released secrets that put the lives of many people at risk... if it was your family at risk? I'm not even from the US and I can see that!!

    If you live above your means and don't use your power and wealth to help as many people as possible. Than yes.

    I don't believe Snowden put any lives at risk. Not like he released any CIA blacklists or anything.

    Another common flawed argument do you even watch anything outside Fox news...?Communism linked with dictatorships... really? Ok.
    I am a strong supporter of all advocating the rights of the people and workers both elsewhere and in the US...
    You do realize you don't have to go very far to get disappeared for speaking your mind eh? I mean when journalists and critics of the American surveillance state, or American psychiatrist-Military complex die under mysterious circumstances. When whistle blowers and information activist are persecuted daily worldwide by US allies both in America and on reportedly free and democratic nations. You cannot even criticise the Zionist apartheid without risking character assassination...

    In those regards Capitalist US is no longer a democracy, quite the contrary it is no different from personality cult based North Korea, islamist Saudi Arabia or politically corrupt "falsely democratic" Mexico. You need to understand we are not free anywhere anymore. You are only free to gain debt and only as long you don't meddle in the government/corporate/religious elites affairs.

    You see capitalism equally ignores the tenets of freedom and human rights with its sweat shops , 60+ hour work weeks and its under substance salaries for its workers in developing nations. All under the veil of progress, American anti-union establishment is also one of the most striking examples of anti-worker campaigns in the entire world.

    This is by all means modern day slavery and as I stated before a system reconstructed again and again by those benefited the most of it. So if you love capitalism so much why don't you try living in a sweat shop somewhere in India, Bangladesh or el Salvador? Why don't you try living among the field workers of California? You will be contributing so much to the system you love, you have no idea.

    Also before you mention communism and dictators. Let me remind you.
    Augusto Pinochet of Chile financed by democratic USA, deposed left leaning democratically elected Salvador Allende and became responsible of the disappearance of tens of thousands of dissenters. All to return multiple land grants to several US companies. Whom were in turn responsible for blatant human right violations and endless environmental exploitation.

    Suharto of Indonesia supported and baked by democratic USA responsible for the death of about half a million PKI (Partai Kommunist Indonesia). And about the same number of political dissenters during his 30 year rule. His democratic capitalistic rule featured; ravaging inequality, Islamism and lack of regard towards secularism.

    President Reagan supported the islamist Taliban over secular communist Soviet rule. They're responsible of hundreds of thousands of deaths of their own people and of American soldiers who 3 decades later went on to fight them. The same story repeated itself in both Pakistan and Yemen...

    Also the courageous Kurdish people which are to this day the main fighting force against ISIS have sought independence since the end of WWI. The only reason why the west has turned their backs to the Kurdish struggle is due to their populist, Marxist ways. Instead they have preferred to stand by Turkey who not 3 months ago gave ISIS a train full of heavy weaponry.
    They have also refused to assist the US in any way they can... Let's not forget the state sponsored atrocities against Christians and Kurds.

    In Iran democratically elected left leaning Muhammad Mossadegh was replaced by CIA sponsored one of the most infamous dictators of all times the Shah. He in turned was deposed by the Shiite Islamist elite, who let me remind you is also currently fighting ISIS.
    As far as Saddam Hussein goes I hate to say it but it will be naive and plain ignorant to argue against the fact he was a thousand times better than ISIS currently is.

    In Nicaragua the Reagan supported Contras are infamous for their atrocities and human rights violations....

    By now I think you know where I'm going...
    That is the fact Capitalist, Democratic USA. Preferred islamism, military dictatorships and plain terrorists over anything populist, pro-workers, secular and communist. ALL OVER AN ECONOMIC SYSTEM INCOMPATIBLE TO CAPITALISM. Get it to your head your country is truly the number one terrorist of the world.

    Such is why I can't help but laugh at your military and people nowadays for thinking dying over the mistakes of the past is patriotic. For they're not serving the people, they're not fighting for freedom... They're serving the economic, political and social interests of very very few. Remember after that in the US corporations are people and their freedom to corrupt, exploit and destroy are at stake. It is sad... truly sad.
    Be assured however; that until my last breath I'll continue the fight to destroy it all. Such is why I am pro-gun you see... Revolution are my means of reconstruction and what better place to begin it all than in the place that started it all. Long live the people! Long live the workers!! Long live the Internationalist revolution!!!
