: Stu: Go ahead and spend your days hoping for war, pestilence, and recession, Barry. Recognize that this characterizes you as just about as far as one can get from true altruism. Also reflect on the immense successes that all previous revolutions have enjoyed at ushering in their ostensible goals. Count the dead bodies and ruined lives and smile in gleeful anticipation of the next catastrophy. What a monster is one who hopes for clamity in order to realize his agenda.

: What a shameless monster.

:: Qx: Yes, that's what capitalism does to the planet but what makes you think Barry wants catastrophe?

I read his post.

:: After all, he's not a Bible-thumper who speaks of hellfire and brimstone. He doesn't even make a profit out of this.

Grow up, Q. If you have a point please let us know what it is. Characterizing my opinions by linking to a web site I've never been to or advocated is character assasination and trivializes everything I have to say. You've done this before and it makes you look
stupid - not me.


Cool html stuff though. The word or name "gort" has some kind of Celtic background. It is a county in the British Isles among other things. Unfortunately, for any designs you have to disparage my name, "Gort" is a cognate of the dutch name "Vander Hoort" having nothing to do whatsoever with this. It merely means "by the barley" and refers to the fact that my ancestors were barley farmers as far back as can be determined. Truth is, my whole life growing up in L.A. I felt out of place and felt that I was supposed to be a country boy. Do you think 12 generations of barley farming rearrranges one's DNA? I do.
