Invade and destroy, or look the other way in equanimity with sorrow?

No invasion

by NickNielsen Moderator In reply to 99 lashes

Equanimity with sorrow is, unfortunately, the only option.

To think otherwise is to have been brain-dead for the past eight years.

Sometimes when I read your posts ...

I feel like Malcom McDowell with his eyes being gently assisted in their openness by a cute little wire contraption. I so much like bliss, but never seem to find it.

Oh well, keep doing your job. Someone has to do it.

Job

Comma after, "Oh,.."; period after, "well." Capital, "K".

Otherwise, you enter the foyer with muddy boots.

At least, it's an improvement.

I used to enter, forget my lines and not know where stage left was; where I was supposed to make my exit.

Okay ... still do.

Yeah

by santeewelding In reply to Would

Something like that.

I am sure that you, as well as many here, myself included, are more than passingly acquainted with human political history (polis).

How, for instance, we all now got to where we are, owing to those before us. What's going on now in that place, I take as an example of what went before.

Who am I? Who are you?

Does not make it any easier.
