Heck, I've had it with the lot of you. Bunch of whiny babies running to the moderators about other posters, and bunch of whiny babies over here casting aspersions on everyone they can name, and scared to death to admit there may have been a scintilla of fault in your own behavior. Most of you are no better than the shopforum whiners are, and you deserve eachother.
Lighten up webbie. It's controversial stuff and people are going to talk about it. It's also something that naturally puts people on the defensive. I admit to being human, I make mistakes and am riddled with character defects, just like everyone else. Whatever shortcomings you see in my behavior is not apparent to me and vice versa, that is the human condition. I deal with it in others by allowing everyone, including myself, the right to be wrong.
Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.
