: Not quite. It would seem the first choice of the belligerent, especially those armed with an appropriately revolutionary ideology. I would say, however, that violence, or rather, the threat of violence, acts as a fairly effective refuge for those who would wish to enjoy a bit of affluent 'exploitation'. Thus, my support for a strong American military.

Now that's a cliché of the first order, "support for
a strong American military. I keep wanting to
sing "Stout Hearted Men" here...rum da da dum,
rum da da dum...

Exploitive? Yes, I am a member of the same class.
I'll go fur a gud deal wherever I find it.

Are you an oxymoronic member of the military mind-set?

: And now, a cliché of my own:

: Emotional rhetoric is the last refuge of the blatantly wrong.
: -- Dr. Cruel

: To which I may remind, that catchy slogans do not morality make, whether expoused by science fiction writers or T-shirt manufacturers. James Carville nonwithstanding, of course.

Thanks for the "remind". I'll take it under

Would you have some of Carville's profundities?

I'm an inveterate collector of same. Even the trite.

OOOhhh, Doc. You are sooo enlightening. Please
