RE: Olympic National Park
I swear it was an innocous joke. I was actualy trying to be a little light -hearted with the guy to see if I could get him to lighten up. To this day I have no idea what got him into that mindset, and I also have no idea what set this guy off on me in the first place.
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.
