42. so i guess at least one correction is in order....
Edited on Tue Oct-20-09 10:25 AM by pelsar
lets start with the *academic view*....to many times those in academia seem to be so enthralled with their *superior intellect*, that actually have little real knowledge of the workings on ground...meaning their views, their papers are best used in the bathroom.......

and of course there are those emotion laden words like *oppressing* as per your use above, which does little to describe the I/P conflict, but is great emotional cheerleader for getting the masses are riled up. I noticed that when one uses those words their position usually lacks real knowledge nor the sequence of events the describe the reality of the situation....or they prefer an emotional response as opposed to a logical one.

perhaps as per my suggestion in the beginning, you should read more, the stuff you couldnt find.

and i have no idea why you mentioned your lineage......i wear a size 8.5 shoe......42 for those in the metric world
