    That shit's not gonna fly. Smarten up.
    Regardless, the point is well taken that when these "mass killings" are attributed to one country or another, the claims tend to be absurd.

    For example La Raza/mecha/Stolen Continent with the assistance of various turds (living or dead) in academia, accuse "white people" of killing a number of "indigenous people" so huge it amounts to all the Indians which may have lived in the Americas for 3 centuries. Some blacks claim an absurd number of slaves died in passage, so many as to be a physical impossibility.

    There has been some controversy conscerning this guy and his paper but I haven't read it myself, I've only seen it referenced so idk the details.

    It's Pravda! Citing Pravda as a source on American starvation numbers is like citing Mein Kampf for Jewish economic data.

    Seriously, is that the best you've got?

    even if those numbers are correct, there is a huge difference between a natural/economic disaster and a whole sale saluter by ones government simply for disagreeing with it or being of a religious belief system.

    Also, many argue that FDR polices prolonged the Depression, the econonmy was showing signs of recovery as early as 1930 when it crashed again. Hoover and FDR's meddling with the economy screwed things up.

    They're not correct. There actually is a source document that provides much more accurate data than <snort> Pravda, from the CDC, http://www.cdc.gov/nchs/data/vsus/VSUS_1937_1.pdf, it seems that the death rate actually declined during the Depression. Here's the re.event passage:

    DEATH RATE TREND.-In1937 there were 1,450,427 registered deaths In the United States. Using an estimated midyear populationof 129,257,000, the crudedeathrate is 11.2 per 1,000.
    This rate ,though slightly lower than the rate for 1936,Is not greatlydifferent from those for the past several years.In 1900,the first year for which annual mortality statistics were compiled,the crude death rate was 17.6.The trend of the rate since that year has been generally downward,although there has been an occasional year or high mortality. The lowest death rate for this period of time is Tor 1933,for which year the rate is 10.7.
    In other words, four years after the Wall Street crash, the death rate was the lowest it had been in years. An honest man would admit his error and acknowledge that during the worst economic catastrophe in its history, the capitalist system proved far more resilient than any communist state, even during times of plenty. As for what a dishonest man would do, let's await Wei's reply.

    Look at it this way, if accidentally mixing peanut butter and chocolate made the Reese's guy a millionaire, spewing coffee into your Vegemite ought to be worth a few bucks. :D
