    You're getting there Noon. Won't be long and you'll be advocating work camps for lazy liberals.:D

    Do not ever say that the desire to "do good" by force is a good motive. Neither power-lust nor stupidity are good motives. (Are you listening Barry)?:mad:

    I've never been anti-military. I never planned to join up myself, but I've had too many relatives who served honorably to hate the military. My dad served in the Army in Korea, after the war, and my great-uncle was a Sea Bee in WWII, among others. One of my coworkers is in the Army Reserve and is on active service right now, and a lot of my coworkers have adult children actively serving.

    Plus, I was a little kid in the 60s and the protests used to drive my dad crazy. He would tell us that even if the Vietnam War was wrong, it was the politicians' fault, not the soldiers'. Dad used to buy drinks for soldiers on leave, and gove them rides if they were hitching near a base.

    too bad we're not allowed to do that at school anymore. :(
    Stand up for what is right, even if you have to stand alone.
