  • Thanks for introducing us, I’d never heard that one before.  Perhaps your motto in the face of the current admin?
    An expert orator, if there ever was one.  Not the greatest on the military strategy, but decent enough…



  • That quote is one of about 3 dozen that I was required to memorize at USAFA (the John Stewart Mill quote was another).

    And yes… I am about as bent with the current admin as I can get when it comes to the move toward, if not slavery then serfdom.

    @Imperious:

    Actually their both my heros but the quote came from his son. …

    Wilhelm I. was the granddad of Wilhelm II. In 1888 there was the “3 Kaiser year”, when Wilhelm I. and his son Friedrich III. died the same year.

    @Imperious:

    Now, i wait for IL to silently correct it and somehow claim from the above lines that i love to eat swans on toast.

    I only need to correct your “3 year kaiser statement” with a 99 day tenure from Friedrich III.

    I skipped the insults and just highlighted the part which shows that you didn’t read my post properly.

    Will you excuse yourself for the name calling?

    I skipped the insults

    1)This is a good course for you to follow in the future as well…
    2) No.
    3) have a nice day and please get more sleep.  :mrgreen:



  • Falk, what are you on? you and IL are making no sense in this petty little argument, please stop, alright? your ruining the thread.

    OK im done… 😉



  • My advice is to read posts twice.  Since you lose the benefit of mannerisms, intonation, inflexion of voice, etc., plain text can seem a bit forward sometimes.  Many people have a hard time grasping what’s said, and a second review can cause many realizations.

    Anyway, I’ve got a quote to add.

    “When the gods want to punish us, they answer our prayers.”

    Wonderful insight.

    I think you should take something to get your perception back on who is misquoting and accusing others of “having his history wrong”. I agree it is petty, but i can’t stand liars who keep telling bullshit … and obviously -looking at your reaction- keep getting away with it.
