. . . it is my conviction that we must stand upon principle. If we cannot guarantee the liberty of our own people as we go forward, what ever the future may hold, then better is it for the rest of humanity that we, here, snuff out the light of our eyes in this bitter contest of wills over the future of this nation, then it would be to otherwise take the fruits of technological revolution and so enslave all of mankind.

All sane people should oppose war. Thanks for sharing your thoughts.

It would seem only the insane admire sanity.

Not sure I wanna know.

No surprise there. Frankly I don't think you intellect is up to much beyond propaganda.

[-] 0 points by DKAtoday (28488) from Coon Rapids, MN 2 years ago

Propaganda can be very deep and twisty - it can also be pretty straight forward and honest.

R U sure you know what U R talking about?

Who was DKA yesterday?

[-] 1 points by DKAtoday (28488) from Coon Rapids, MN 2 years ago

I suppose - me - yesterday.

Pretty much the same as me today - just a day earlier - or in the past.

Depending on how you look at things.

Yea... philosophically I struggle immensely with this thing of "time."

[-] 1 points by DKAtoday (28488) from Coon Rapids, MN 2 years ago

I used to think about time and complexities of alternative possibilities. But - now - time - I have come to accept with more practicality - is a one way street - you can't change direction - go back and do something different - but you can remember lessons learned from prior history - then try to repeat the good stuff and try not to repeat the bad shit.

[-] -2 points by funkytown (-374) 2 years ago

Time relative to the individual defies definition, unlike art which can be defined yet not wholly deciphered. To me, these two represent our greatest philosophical challenges.

But death replied I choose him and so he went. You've seen the movie Regeneration, right?

[-] 0 points by funkytown (-374) 2 years ago

Yes it is... the movie was 1997, I think. Good flick, though.

PS: I admire the intellect and the passion, also your taste in music. And I don't see anything inherently wrong or flawed in your slightly less than apolitical politics, either.

But I gotta ask, did you just say, Yaaay-yah? Well now where I have I heard that before?

[-] 0 points by funkytown (-374) 2 years ago

No no no... I spent a significant portion of my childhood in Massachusetts, in locations where the phonology was extreme. They say, yaaaYah (yeah-ya, I'm uncertain of the phonetics because of the inflection). For them it's not sarcasm; it's their way of saying I'm open, listening, contemplating your words. Sorry, for injecting.

I deleted it because I wanted to expand on my statement, then drifted... when I got back, I don't know, the world had somehow changed; I just re-posted it.

That sounds so picasso-like...

It was time, Zen. Danke zehr...

So snuff out the light already. Give up.

Well aren't you just the eager one.
