I now see that you are not totally devoid of humor, and know at least some terminology in the field of psychology.

My father didn't diddle me, but he did have certain parental short-comings.

I was very fortunate to inherit his intellect, and my mother's too, for that matter.

Now, what's your excuse?

Haha,

I know more psych terminology than I care to admit.

And I do have a highly developed sense of humor. In fact, it is my sense of humor that allows me to put up with people like yourself.

Actually, that was a joke. I don't mean to be continually dumping on you.

You just stepped into something between the self-proclaimed prof and myself and got hit by some of the shrapnel--that's all.

I just don't like people making blanket statements like, "...the Jews control the U.S. government.." unless they have numbers and facts to back up their assertions. It is not that I have an obssessive reliance on numbers, I just want to hold people's feet to the fire when it comes to political debate.

Citing articles is useless because almost every writer brings his bias into the piece he writes. For example, if I want to prove that blacks are intellectually inferior to whites, there are lots of articles out there written for the sole purpose of proving just that point. Problem is, however, that when you examine the scholarship behind the article(s) you find it to be rather suspect. Hence the old swa, "...consider the source."

There is no doubt that the pro-Israel lobby contributes to political campaigns in the U.S. But there is no hard,empirical evidence that establishes a money-for-votes quid pro quo.

My point is, if you are going tomake a statement, then back it upwith hard facts and figures. If you can't back it up, all you are doing is spreading hate.

Time and time again throughout history (most recently with Hitler) Jews have been accused of exercising undue influence in government and/or not being loyal to their country of birth. INcidentally, this was the same argument raised by some when JFK ran for president. Some of his opponents floated the idea that as a practicing Catholic, JFK would be beholden to Rome and to the Pope and put America's interests second. We know how wrong that was.

Now,getting to your reply to my post.

If your dad had short-comings, how was he able to...oh never mind.

I have no excuses...I need no excuses...I ask no excuses.

Cheers!

Hey man,

Cheers to you. You have a damn good mind, and I can take a joke, believe it or not. I'd like to call our match a draw, if that's OK with you.

Shrapnel is a good word for it, and you have some big guns - I admire you for the strength of your convictions.

That was a good analogy you used with the black/white issue too. I remember the "scientists" who were measuring cranial capacities, in their feeble attempt to prove white intellectual superiority.

I obviously mis-judged you, and I'm offering you a public apology.

Kind regards,
Musikmann

Musikmann, no need to apologize, we both fired some pretty nasty salvos at each other. I love the art of verbal pugilism and when I get into it I can land some pretty heavy punches...and I take some punches myself.

I don't believe in censorship. I would never ask or demand that someone be censored in these forums. To me, the answer to "bad" speech is more speech, not censorship.

We can call it a draw...or if you're in So. California you can call it a Mexican stand-off (and you PC guys relax, by now I am part Mexican too).

Yes, phrenology was an interesting subject. They also tried to used cranial measurements to prove a person's potential for criminal behavior.

Psych is an interesting subject. I have several friends and business acquaintances who are licensed psychologists. When they go to parties they usually don't tell people what they do for a living...because people usually clam up for fear of having their words and actions "analyzed."

Buena suerte amigo!

I'm glad you feel that way. As far as I'm concerned, the mutual salvos are now water over the dam.

Thanks for the "phrenology" reference, I had forgotten the term for that.

Just for the hell of it, I'm pasting part what Wikipedia says about it:

"Phrenology, which focuses on personality and character, is to be distinguished from craniometry, which is the study of skull size, weight and shape, and physiognomy, the study of facial features. However, these fields have all claimed the ability to predict traits or intelligence. They were once intensively practised in anthropology/ethnology and sometimes utilized to "scientifically" justify racism. While some principles of phrenology are well-established today, the basic premise that personality is determined by skull shape is largely considered to be false."

Have a nice evening,
M
