No, Louis. My father died in his vomit, a drunken Korea and Viet Vet with a
bad conscience. He never did buy me that Porsche because he never raised me.
I never was thrown out for stealing; I always earned any money I had.

Your mindless trashing of someone with whom you have a disagreement is quite
curious. If someone disagrees with you, they are beneath your intelligence.
If they anger you, no level of verbal sparring is beneath you. What the hell
have you ever really DONE for your fellow humans ? What do you have to bray
about, here or anywhere else ? What human misery have you alleviated ? What
human needs have you met ?

Fact is, Louis, you dont know me, where I am from or where I am going. I
suspect there are alot of people you dont know. You act as if you apparently
like to push buttons to make yourself look smart or clever or whatever. You
act as if you are precisely the type of arrogant, smirking leftist that most
people cringe from.

Apparently you and others have already had your discussions about the Soviets
and any other topic which can be brought up. Wont trouble you anymore. You
can go back to comparing yourself with some other heavyweights around here
who have mastered the jargon of the future.
