    You have to go back further. Old days were no internet, no computer. I remember in school having to use a slide rule for physics and math. In college, it was a big deal to have a hand calculator that did trig functions. Computer was a main frame where punch cards were used for program entry. Any one under 50 is soft, soft I tell you.

    May be true, but brings up an "old saying", if it isn't broke, don't fix it. Change for change sake is not always good.

    60 isn't all that bad. Of course you know we are both getting ready to skid down that final hill. But before I make that final skid I am still able to kick ass and take names later.

    It's not necessarily change for changes sake, but a disagreement on what works, and what is good.

    That quote is full of ****. I want to stab something every time I see it.

    If my time here at DP has been any indication, i've seen both conservatives and liberals, old and young posters with absolutely no brains.

    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.

    The quote seamlessly combines an of appeal to authority (in the person of Winston Churchill) and a witty play on words into a maxim for the ages. As far as political rhetoric goes, it is a masterpiece.

    If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.

    I'll agree with that. Hope things work for you in the future. I'm glad I am on the downhill side of life. I just plan to keep on spending my retirement doing what I enjoy.
