      Having your head lopped off by a bloody fanatic isn't a picnic.  And war isn't a tea party.  And the Constitution isn't a suicide pact.  And dying ain't much of a living, to hear Josey Wales tell it.    

      As for muzzling a discussion, you can't in good faith accuse me of that.  It seems I encouraged a pretty sprawling discussion, even if mostly I got accused of nasty things for my trouble.

      Have a good night, barleystraw, I honestly am glad we have Americans who are troubled by the war machine.

        these crimes against humanity will live on and on- like the witch burnings, the lynchings Wounded Knee and other atrocities.

        We may not hear about it in the USA, but the people underneath the drones will remember.

        People down south here still resent Sherman's march to the sea.

        My Courtesy Manifesto, flawed as it is, is not so much pointed at you as at our President, who I and my whole family voted for twice.

        I drink two cups of tea or coffee when I make it.

        One cup says, "i Love my Wife"

        The other one is an Obama souvenir cup.

        anyway, you were not muzzling- you were stimulating discussion.

        keep it up.
