Guys, you should resolve this. Now. If not here, then through pm. And I mean resolve, don't just post arguments back and forth like bickering kids.

Peckery, if you didn't intend to offend, then damn well say so. Don't just try and sugar coat the comment with other poor ones and call it all in fun. You stepped on some toes, man, it's time to admit it.

If a kid trows a rock at someone, you make them say sorry, no matter how much they want to just throw another one. Or at least, that's the way it should be. sad.gif



After that last post, you're stepping on my toes too. And she doesn't need the whole board to back her. If you offend one, you offend all. Practice some restraint.

On the wholewe have better teeth, so we win.
And we never did get a formal THANKS for saving their pasty asses in WWII

I?d like to make a few comments here. First, there is something to be said of stating facts properly. I have said this before and it has been an issue before, if you venture off to make statements not supported by fact, you are going to get whacked. Be prepared to backup what you say, just don?t say something and not expect someone to question it. The U.S. did not single handedly win WWII. We did not by ourselves save the world from ternary. It was the combined efforts of millions of people from countries like Canada, U.S., U.K., Soviet Union, China and others ? that stopped the Axis countries dead in their tracks. I?m not a historian, but I think the U.K., against all odds, ceased Germany from invading their country. BY THEMSELVES! Before the U.S. got involved in the war, or enough to make a difference.

It is a disgrace to the soldiers that died to say such a thing. People don?t realize and will never comprehend the sacrifices that were made so that we could live in peace. I know it is hard to imagine a world different than what it is today, but people gave their lives so you could walk around and voice your opinion, freely, openly and without retribution.

In the honor of the WWII generation, I can certainly say with 100% belief that you would never hear them utter such words. Nor would they ever claim such thing. Take a lesson from them and before you actually make a claim like this, talk and asked them your question/statement.

I may be coming off a little strong on this, but both my wife and I have fathers that fought in WWII. One at the Battle of the Bulge and one at Okinawa. Especially coming off Memorial Day, it is a little disheartening to here such a claim.

I think that was something like the reply I was trying to make. You just put it a little more succinctly.... biggrin.gif

I declare this Eel Pie Factory OPEN.    Wow!  I have goose bumps.

I am so glad you have had the free time to poll everyone on this board and ask them how they feel about my posts.
It is this kind of hard scientific research and data and TRUTH that keep this board a great place.  I weep openly and bow at your superior intellect.  Please don't beat on my fragile psyche any more.

Sure the whole forum isn't going to post how they disagree with your comments but as one can clearly see she wasn't the only one perturbed by what you have said. I for one agree with her whole heartedly. But in addition, I should say this. Your first comment could have been enough to poke fun, but after you saw how other's felt you could have stopped but instead you keep throwing in insults. You did not defend yourself without using insults on someone else. Yeah it is a little late but I had to add two pence.

There was no reason for this thread to have a rebirth. This was a dead issue long ago. Both of these people are no longer on this forum. One by choice and the other was removed by Mac.

Mac knew the real reason behind the hatred of these two. Mac, at that time, choose to not acknowledge that fact and let the issue die, which is what should happen to this thread.

LET IT DIE!!
