Makes sense !!!!

Have a question about switchblades, folders, fixed blades, hand guns, rifles, blow-guns, nuclear weapons, or just plain common sense? Ask Vagrant. If he doesn't have the answer, he'll want to know it.

A liberal will ALWAYS prefer a great theory to simple logic :roll:
The even invented the term "simplistic" to diminish the value of anything that is simple and CORRECT :!:

Mr. Vagrant,

The current Dalai is reportedly a crack shot with an AK-47. Chief Joseph, the patron saint of the Nez Pierce tribe, was a pacifist. His reasoning for kicking serious ass on the Union troops who persued him for over 1,000 miles? "The Great Spirit puts it in the hearts of men to know how to defend themselves".

Best regards,

Bonz

terms like conservative and liberal are really lost on me...
BUT
I do love the quote you selected! them hardcore Buddhists may have quite the pacifist bone, but still have a love for justice??? -i like that.

simple logic... here's another:
There's an old Mennonite saying that goes, "Live simple so that others may simply live."
"Everyone is your neighbor."

surrender speech of Chief Joseph:
"I am tired of fighting. Our chiefs are killed.
Looking Glass is dead. Toohulhulsote is dead. The old men are all dead.
It is the young men who say yes or no. He who led the young men is dead.
It is cold and we have no blankets. The little children are freezing to death. My people, some of them, have run away to the hills and have no blankets, no food.
No one knows where they are--perhaps freezing to death.
I want to have time to look for my children and see how many I can find. Maybe I shall find them among the dead.
Hear me, my chiefs. I am tired. My heart is sick and sad.
From where the sun now stands, I will fight no more forever. "

sometimes the bad guys are empowered by the good guys... and sometimes, there are no good guys, just greed and supremacy.
The Native Americans are the greatest victim of European progress.
