The KEY consideration to remember,
at all times,
is that I AM WONDERFUL.

You certainly are something else, David.

Yes.
My mother seemed to think so
( judging from the fact that she told me so repeatedly ).

She used to say:
" David, you are like someone from another planet..."
referring to some of my ideosyncratic preferences.

Well, u advocate a lot of unnecessary carnage & chaos.
There is no reason for us to co-operate with that.
You are not a good philosopher, Dag.
YOUR leadership is QUESTIONABLE.

I support a well armed citizenry,
for purposes of self defense from criminals and from government.

A well armed citizenry gives rise to a sense of personal independence,
rugged individualism, libertarianism, anti-socialism and keeping government on a short leash.

This restores the principles upon which America was founded.

All we have to do is make the "Unnecessary" necessary.It is simply a matter of putting two common men on opposite sides of Religion, Nationalism or ideologies.

BAM There we have it "unnecessary carnage & chaos."

It is a philosophy and a leadership we follow without question For Religion, Nationalism or ideologies you will co-operate and so will they and in the middle is.......dagmaraka.

Thus her philosophy.

I presented neither philosophy, nor am I a leader of any sort. So please refrain from commenting on my skills on either of those.

On the other hand, it astounds me that you took what I wrote seriously for half a second. If it was meant seriously, it would have had to be a work of a raving lunatic.... even though I merely took your idea and took it to a slightly higher level of absurdity. Talk about dangerous chaos...

I LOVED it, when he got killed,
but not nearly as much
as when communism ignomineously went out of business.
The 20th Century saw the deaths of communism and nazism;
that makes me happy.

I figured youd be less perplexed to answer this post as to the one before it.

Before I mentioned the word Socialism you weren't sure if or what to attack. My first post made some sense but the ideal had no name...and it never will.

You would be hard pressed to find any boys around here that haven't at some point played Little League or been to games at Ripken Stadium.
It's a way of life. It gets kids out of the house, away from tv and video games and

I don 't think much of seeing who can
run around in circles better.





David, it's not about who can run around in circles better. Cal played 2132 consecutive games. His nckname is Ironman. He teaches kids to keep on keeping on. The strive to be better. To not give up in the face of defeat.
Baseball teaches life lessons while running around in circles (as you say.)

Tenacity can be good;
depending upon what u r being tenacious ABOUT.

How does it accomplish THAT ?
( I hope that u r not going to tell me to experiment with it empirically. )

There survives a letter from Thomas Jefferson to his 12 year old nephew,
whom he counsels to always take his gun with him,
whenever he goes for a walk, and to practice with it.
He was of the opinion that gunnery practice builds character.

From the 1940s thru the collapse of communism ( almost ),
I feared that the commies wud succeed in conquering the world,
because some of our leaders ( like the Kennedys ) were very weak, timid
and some of them secretly admired collectivism and communist slavery.
I believed that there was a good chance things wud get so bad
that I 'd have to put a gunshot thru my mother 's head, and then thru my own head
to save us from communist battle tanks, as thay rolled down the street,
as the weakness of liberals is a temptation to aggression.

I used to be an Anti-communist spy for the US House Committee on un-American Activities,
in an effort to injure communism in America. I was a friend of Herbert Philbrick.

Nazism and communism are dead.
I can denounce them if I choose,
but if I don 't thay will not resurrect.
Thay rot together at the bottom of the cesspool of history,
regardless of anything I say, or regardless of my silence.

I can safely forget about them.

I was not talking to YOU.
I was responding to someone ELSE.
