  •  That is a pretty dumb thing to say. (0+ / 0-)

    Is that really the best level of discourse you can provide?


    •  I rise to the occasion. (0+ / 0-)
      Who does not know what the Constitution says? Meanings change. A declaration could be an authorization these days.

      Did you say that or not?

      •  Is that not so? (0+ / 0-)

        Are you saying there without a declaration, force is never permitted?

        What level of force constitutes armed conflict.

        If there is authorization granted to engage in armed conflict against a state or entity, is that not akin to a present day declaration?

        These seem to be relevant and real questions regarding use of force in the present day.

        I still do not get your point with regard to the substance of the issue, and believe it is dumb to play word games. You rise to the occasion, but does that matter? Why don't you offer some thoughts regarding the matters with respect to the issue itself?

    •  A "dumb" thing to "say" (0+ / 0-)

      You really aren't all that picky about the literal meaning of the words you employ are you?

      •  No, dumb is dumb. (0+ / 0-)

        I am and keep trying to talk about the issue of armed conflict and find it dumb to make it about the way I use words and what they mean to me as compared to others.

        I suppose this means there is really not much that can be offered on the matter in regard to the substantive issues I have been addressing.

        I'll leave it there. I do not understand what people often find important here to use energy on.
