    j-mac, DP would be what it is if people couldn't joke. I agree there are some jokes that cross the line (and that's why we have forum rules), but jokes and humor are an inherent part of this forum: people on both sides engage in it and it's all in good fun. What destroys debate here is extremism, incivility, irrationality, and blind partisanship, not jokes.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    Well said. Thanks.

    Ok, you have a point here, and I guess I agree. Let's just see what happens going forth, and how it is perceived. But, I agree that jokes are ok.

    Speaking of Jokes. Sometimes I listen to Alex Jones when I am driving on the weekend, if for nothing else to entertain myself and have a good laugh. For those that don't know during the 9/11 debates, and whether or not the government was involved, well, Alex Jones was one of the original 'truthers' out there, and to this day stands behind some of those whacky assertions....Here is what he has to say about the BC issued yesterday by Obama.

    But he did not seal them. Understand where your falsehood is at.

    I'm glad you only listen to him for laughs j-mac. I believe that anyone who proclaims to be both a birther and truther is likely just looking for attention.

    I am not surprised racist groups are attracted to the movement... they tend to hate foreign people
