GIVE 'EM HELL, GEORGE(MIKE)!!! HEAD OFF THE ENEMY AT THE "WESTERN WALL"
This should be mandatory for everyone to watch!!!!!!
History should always be mandatory - it is how we are supposed to learn not to repeat the mistakes of the past.
Saw you on another blog. Was not awake enough at the time to catch your sarcasm / satire. Wanted to apologize for that. Added you to my daily read. Hang in there!
hi pinhead, read almost your entire blog and i simply have to put across what i think of you.you are so bloody condescending, in spite of your being in asia for so many years, you're better off back home in your own country.seems like you have this complex that you and your american culture are far superior to anything asian. things that are strange to you is only because you aren't asian...get it, stupid? do you really expect the whole frigging world to look like you, think like you cultureless worms, eat the kind of junk that you called food ?it's the victory over the japanese in WW2 that have given you guys the springboard to military might. the rest of the world is merely waiting for the total decline of your nation. last laugh to the rest of the world!!!! haha!!don't kid yourself into believing that your country is great. know what? you guys are your own worst enemies...you really do endear yourself to the rest of humanity by being such pompous asses.
Dear Mr. Anonymous,First of all, thanks so much for your comments. While much of your rant was abusive and off-topic, there were a few nuggets of substance. I'll have to disagree with a few of your conclusions though but would be happy to discuss them if you choose to return.Secondly, I'd like to thank you for inspiring me to disable the anonymous posting here, the privilege that many have enjoyed up until now. What that means is that drive-by posters like you and the rest of your ilk won't be able to hide behind the guise of anonymity anymore. You'll somehow have to muster the courage to add your "John Hancock" to whatever you decide to post here.Hopefully, by removing the anonymous posting you and a few others will learn to participate in a civilized constructive debate here rather than simply finding yourself compelled to pee on the carpet.Have a nice day!

A good example is the American Civil War; most today firmly believe it was solely fought to eradicate Slavery, when in fact the genesis was the North's imposition of tariffs against Southern interests and imports, of which Slavery was a very small part and controlled by mainly Northern entities. To hear them tell it, every White family had Negro slaves -- ignoring the facts that some well-to-do Negro families also had slaves, and better than 90% of those killed didn't and wouldn't ever have owned a slave.Yes, it takes time to effect the revisions, but the Socialists have been at it for better than a century -- not only in the US but in most of the Western nations. The "religion of peace" has been pushing its revisionist history for eons, and I see no evidence that a refornmation is on the horizon.
Give em Hell George! When I was in seventh grade, it was 1972 I came home with a Social Studies textbook, my Mother asked me where was my History textbook? I told her they aren't teaching History, they are teaching Social Studies. Well thank God almighty, she started teaching me History at home. We didn't even know what home school was at the time, but the rest is history. VN8
