I started out trying to have just a little bit of fun with some hyperbolic humor about the northern states threatening to nuke the South. That elicited silent sarcasm which got translated and washed out into merely black and white on a screen. Two of us who are obviously seriously challenged mind readers and also color blind, countered the absurd (now known to be sarcastic) cause of the U.S. Civil War, and this has turned into what boils down to a previous point that was attempted in the following thread – which seems to be your point, WB: learn from history, but don’t expect it to duplicate itself every time.
Don’tcha just love internet forums?!?
