    Flak (more properly, FlaK) is shorthand German for FliegerabwerKannon, or 'anti aircraft gun'. Pretty simple, eh? The FlaK-18 and the FlaK-36 were the famous 88mm AA guns we all know and love.
    Pak (more properly, PaK) is shorthand German for Panzerabwerkannon, or 'anti armot (tank) gun', Examplesof these are the 75mm Pak40.
    "Flak" caught on in popular useage, whereas 'PaK' did not.

    How should have I asked it to bring it into context?
    And how would that have changed your response?

    I cannot possibly see how any of the "context" issues have any relevance to someones' asnwer to the question. Show me how I am wrong.
    The ONLY way they make any difference is if your answer to the question depends on who asks (or, in this case, who makes the statement).
    Is that indeed the case?

    I'm guessing that the term "flak" took off because of all the WWII movies that featured dogfights and such. I learned about it from the movie "Memphis Belle"

I do not think it is wrong to point that out. Jumping over Obama for saying "africans Americans are a mongrel people" is still petty and just doing the the same stuff stupid libs did when Bush was in office.


    You would think after 8 years of partisan liberal hacks pulling this crap on Bush, conservatives would realize how stupid these sort of threads make people look.
    This is why I find it absolutely ****en hilarious when some lib has the nerve to mock birthers and the Obama is am muslim crowd.

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    I already demonstrated how you failed to use context in what he said as a "trap" for liberals... without full information. You're just pissed because I exposed yet ANOTHER of your disingenuous and dishonest threads. Keep posting them, and I'll keep exposing them.

    Nope. bubba is incorrect. You have STILL failed to address the context in which Obama made the comments... simply because it makes your thread look as dishonest as it is. No, Goobie, as always when we do this, the round is on you.

    When I saw Goobie's thread, knowing his past history of posting dishonest bait and trap threads, I would have done what I did. Read the article to see in what context the comment was made. If it was someone else, I would have been far less skeptical, but still would have read the article to see in what context the comment was made. In either case, if context was not disclosed, I would have been just as confrontational. Goobie knows what he did. He does it all the time. Here's an example of what he did:

    "I killed the ass". Tell me if this is an appropriate thing for a President to say?

    Then, when you read the article, you find out that the President said this when he saw a donkey charging at 4 children, so he "killed the ass". Now, Goobie would say that context doesn't matter... because he would be creating a dishonest bait and trap thread to attack liberals. Of course, most people would see through this and understand that context creates a completely different meaning for the statement... something that Goobie denies. I find it quite bizarre that someone would deny the importance of context when discussing the meaning of statements. Goobie's purpose isn't to debate. It's to trap. And I'll keep exposing these traps whenever I see them.

    You STILL don't understand the concept of context and are STILL trying to dance away from the issue. Who said it is meaningless. In what context it was said is what matters.
