    the real hypocrisy is not merely that the ACLU doesn't actively defend gun rights but its chief spokesbabe-Nadine Strossen went around claiming that the Second amendment should be construed as narrowly as possible-ie to protect only a state's right to have a militia, while arguing that other amendments such as the first and the fourth and fifth be expanded to the point of requiring Miranda warnings etc

    haha Alfons you are the funniest Poe around here, never change dude.
    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.
