Well Jeff, I knew you were skulking around out there, seething in your simple, bitter mind. The above statement, as well as most of your others, clearly displays your knee jerk self-serving dogmatism.
If you are capable of a more specific assertion with some foundation on a point by point basis (saying "read Chomsky" is the same as saying read Jane Fonda) I would be happy to engage you in a dialog, but your infantile sweeping generalizations are worthy of nothing but scorn.
I was in Saigon in the Merchant Marine delivering war material in the sixties before I joined the Navy where I served in the Pacific on shipboard. It was a great adventure.
