    Nothin' new here!

    Although it was a work of fiction, the author Robert Ruark wove an ugly and graphic description of the treatment that was given to Mau-Mau gangsters unlucky enough to be "taken into custody." Denied...
  3. Poll: Following instructions....

    I am defining the "other" and that is military history.

    Because it is so expansive--it starts with the first time men picked up sticks and stones and goes on to the present--it is at once a...

    Poll: Manslaughter?

    Manslaughter is a felony in most of the penal codes with which I have become familiar. But, since felonious conduct is viewed differently in other cultures--you did say that didn't...

    Poll: Six hunnert clams?

    I do not need to know that badly! Not for $600!

    Since the application of my life is pretty much a done-deal, it will benefit me not to find out neither! But for those who have nothing better to...

    There are even more, now!

    I must admit that I have not been given the training of a classic chef, but the "cook-it-yerself" cook books make it possible for even clots like me to whip up a decent...

    "I'm a Catholic. I can feel guilty about anything!" ADA Ben Stone, Law & Order

    That pretty much sums it up. As a Roman Catholic I was brought up to feel guilty about everything. I have shed a...

    When I was on Okinawa, I followed the custom--when in Rome, you do as the Romans. I had no difficulty with the practice and it became second nature. When I came home at night to the barracks, I...

    I checked off so many categories that I had to go back and make certain that I picked only the correct ones.

    I cannot believe that I am the only one who reads cook books. Aren't any of you out...

    Pre-emptive strike?

    I usually am against unilateral military intervention of any kind. It does not have a long track record of success. However, we are already at war with radical Islam, so the idea of a pre-emptive...

    *dryly* I know what the word means, index.

    My question was more about what you meant in your prior statement. I am still not certain, but at least now I know you are being a literalist.

    Skip Stonehenge and stop at--but not including--the Great War.

    Thanks.

    Seppuku

    I think it is less a matter of fulfilling honor than it is to avoid shame and humiliation. The traditional form of "belly cuts" is also a difficult death to perform with grace, so it was looked upon...

    Not at all. I included the statement only to be non-confrontational.

  17. Poll: I find it interesting

    That the preferences are so evenly distributed.

    Poll: Not to argue with you, MP

    But all of the rest comes down--IMHO--to number four. It is that power of rule, the rods-and-the-staves of social discourse, that provides a democracy with its operative clause. The "common people"...

    Poll: *SIGH* Again!

    Not by the choices given.

    Democracy is mob rule. When the mob is enlightened, democracy can be benign. When the mob is petty and driven by human frailty, it is harmful and hurtful.

    Why not? I see no reason why celebs should be restricted from making fools of themselves any more than the rest of us?

    Am I gifted?

    No. I refuse the nomination.

    If I am good at anything it is because I have been doing it for a very long time and competance tends to come with repetition. I have no natural latent abilities of...

    Poll: I agree with you, isay

    ...but the largest problem seems to me to be what shall/should we do about it. In my experience, the most difficult thing in the world to accomplish is to nudge one's culture in the correct--from...
  24. Poll: Can he? Should he?

    I have not--and will not--take the time to wade through this thread, which it seems to be pretty well fork-tested by now. I will only comment that if it is something that a guy has a burning desire...
