    Here is a direct quote from my diary.  

    The threat to the entire world was real and they did conquer that. In no way do I wish to minimize their accomplishments. What they did was astonishing.
    Perhaps you could point out anything specific that I said that was disrespectful, anywhere in my diary.  I never attacked anyone, just the meme of a "greatest generation".

    "Your ass" needs to learn to read.  

    And you have no idea of my history or circumstances.

    •  I read and comprehend quite well, thank you. (0+ / 0-)

      I believe is was your ass that was part of the title of your diary, and that was disrespectful.  Would you care to elaborate on your "history and circumstance" so we can see from whence your views have evolved?

        The "my ass" referred to the EXPRESSION "The Greatest Generation", not to any people at all! The MEME! I disagree with the meme and stated my reasons quite clearly. Again, I believe that the content of the diary made that quite clear. You may disagree with me on that, but I simply cannot understand how one can be disrespectful to an expression or meme.  

        As for my personal history or circumstances, none of your damned business.  I certainly do not have to justify myself to you.

        Again, I stand by what I wrote and I think it is fairly clear.
