    with my naked eyes...
    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.

    Had to vote completely different. I have two of those, so I get depth perception.

    I really don't think a white man can comprehend what it is like to be black.

    Even though it was written in the early 60's the book "Black Like Me" about the white Texan who medically changed his skin and hair to appear black is still pertinent to today. Racism has gotten better than the 60's but it is still there. It has not been that long that we were segregated. Candidate Romney's own church did not accept blacks to the same rights as white members recently as 1978.

    lpast seems to know that. If anyone's making baseless assumptions, it's you, with the straw man rhetoric you're forcing on him.
    My assumptions? That's what he said to Dooble. I just pointed it out.

    Re: How do you see black people?

    Of course, I see a black man (so-called) as a black..
    72 years old, I have seen ONE black, in Morocco, 50 years ago.
    He was black..
    From that point , I try to erase the skin color and simply see the man as a man.
    Recently I watched on TCM a Gandhi movie.
    The English racism and hatred of others was shocking...and they are far from the only ones on this planet with behavioral problems..

    True and agree.
    Its one thing to "see the black", and yet another to do the judgment , that others are inferior, its this thinking which is disgusting.

    You're literally advocating for slowly depriving Americans of welfare. I'm not making things up, I'm reading what you write.

    Also, your post is clearly baiting.

    No you're not. You're reading into what I write. There's a difference. Using your logic, I could just as easily say that you are advocating for slowly putting more & more Americans on Welfare.

    No where in my post did I say what you think I said. I want to get rid of Welfare abusers. You seem to want Welfare to run rampant.

    There's only one baiter here and he is presently staring at your monitor.
