Delenda Est Carthago

Why not delve into a twisted mind? Thoughts on the world, history, politics, entertainment, comics, and why all shall call me master!

I plan on being the supreme dictator of the country, if not the world. Therefore, you might want to stay on my good side. Just a hint: ABBA rules!

What are some people thinking?

I'm not sure if you've seen this story, but it's worth a look.

Apparently, in Easton, Pennsylvania, a couple named their three-year-old son Adolf Hitler Campbell. Their daughter, who's not quite two yet, is named JoyceLynn Aryan Nation Campbell. The couple is a bit peeved because a ShopRite in New Jersey refused to decorate their son's birthday cake with his name. A Wal-Mart eventually did it.

The Campbells insist they aren't racist, and their father says that several children of "mixed race" were at his son's birthday party. He says that his family is German and he named his child Adolf Hitler because he liked the name and no one else in the world would have it. Well, that's true, I guess.

Look, I'm not about to call someone racist just because they name their kids "Adolf Hitler" and "Aryan Nation." I mean, it seems obvious, but I'm still not going to do it. My question to these idiots is: Really? The father claims to be surprised by the controversy. Really? You know who Hitler was, you know what Hitler did, and you think naming your kid that wouldn't stir up some controversy? And what happens when that kid goes to school? (Krys pointed out they'll probably be home-schooled, which is probably true.) What happens when that kid gets beat up every single day because of his name? Jesus.

I read recently that a British court (I think) denied a name to a couple because it was so idiotic. We should have something like that here. If a person tries to get a birth certificate with a name like "Adolf Hitler" on it, a court should send it back with a note: "We don't think so. Try something that won't get your kid beat up."
