"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."
Benjamin Franklin

I wonder if the people killed by Saddam's chemical weapons felt like they were experiencing a "nuanced" death??  :smokin:
Character still matters.  It always matters.

May 3, 2016 - the day the Republican party left ME.  I am now without a Party, and quite possibly without a country.  May God have mercy!

The ones who definitely and unequivocally were on the receiving end (the Kurds) are slightly bitter about it, to say the least.

yes, but have they tasted all of the "nuances" of that bitterness?  Are they as "nuanced" as an American granola leftist, or worse yet, an American Brooklyn-Starbucks leftist?

They are totally nuanced. So nuanced, in fact, that they'll do a 1776 to carve out a homeland.
