    I bet you have HCP or something... High Conflict Personality. You sound very much like my
    ex-wife's new partner and that is what he has. Just battle battle battle and never give an inch.

    Still trying to judge and/or pigeonhole huh? What a shame.
    Ain't gonna work.
    And yes you do have a problem with not understanding that your juvenile actions to criticize, were juvenile.

    No, I am saying that law is determinative. How could you miss that after all this time?

    I am also saying that in this instance you judge the individual by the standards of the time they were in.

    And he was brought up on charges for his actions, so apparently ILLEGAL.

    Insanity. MLK is a much more modern figure that more people can relate to. Unlike that loon Christopher Columbus.

    Wrong!
    That fact that not everybody holds the same standards, proves it is not.

    Of course my sarcastic comments are juvenile. And the first part I was bing honest, the second was sarcastic. Bro, you have problems. That is not an attempt to criticize but from what I have seem a valid assessment. I even made a psychological assessment. Think away though, as that is part of the problem. Very few people do what you are doing. In all honesty you should think about it.

    Relate to?
    Not!
    It is about honoring the individual for their contributions to this country.
    What do you think he contributed that is of such significance?

    Not.
    You have no idea what he was actually charged with.
    I asked you before to support such an assertion and you failed.
    Are you going to do it this time?

    But as we know, he was cleared of the most serious charges.
    So obviously what he did was not illegal.

    Yeah, I get it. You are stating the obvious. Determinative. Standards of the time. That has been clear for a long time now...

    The issue that you are not making clear is if it takes the majority are the totality to make laws right or wrong. You have said that slavery was fine because it was not illegal. You have made reference to other things being fine beause not everybody agrees with it. You are making excuses for Columbus because specific murder laws did not apply to those specific natives. You are kinda all over the place, really.
