Here is a link to counter Payne's account of what it was like for a Soldier returning from Vietnam. Maybe he is just speaking from his own personal experiences though. It was a nice attempt to try and whitewash the horrible treatment Vets received coming home.

From your article:

"Lembcke is an avowed socialist and has tried to use incomplete or dishonest research to lend credence to his government-as-pro-war conspiracy theories, to use the 9-million-plus Vietnam-era veterans as anti-war pawns."

hmmmm. kinda sounds familiar.

Leaving early tomorrow morning for A.C. to play some Poker. Will be gone for a few days. Not sure how many. That is the good news. The bad news is I will be back.

Going there in a $50,000 Caddy and returning in a $500,000 bus? Smile


Yea heard that a lot of times. actually did very well. Finished first in the Tournament at The Borgata. You would not believe what they tried to pull. Tried to pay me $785 cash and $2,200 in comps. Needless to say...you know me (and now they do also Smile ) and I ended up calling for the "Floor" and they came over with Security...I got my 2,985 in cash. Plus a two day room comp for my troubles.

Also about the transportation. My buddy that drove...well we got rear ended on the Schuylkill in his 4 month old Tahoe. Left A.C. at 3:30 and got home after 9:00....usually just over 2 hours.

Now back to raising havoc on the Café. Smile

I can only speak from personal experience. In 1969, while I was in the service and on leave, I went to visit my brother in Atlanta where he was going to college at Oglethorpe.

My brother was a full blown hippie at the time. And I was in full uniform when we took a walk through downtown Atlanta. We were quite a sight, I guess.

When we walked through one area, I DID get spit on by anti-war protesters who chanted "baby killer" at me.

But when we walked through the business district, it was my brother who got dirty looks from a lot of people who called him a "dirty hippie draft dodger." And he was spit on as well.

There was a lot of spitting going on back then.


+1 Very similar experiences.

The Catholic faith believes that the Pope is infallible when it comes to pronouncing on doctrine, but fallible on other matters, as are all humans.

The infallibility of the Pope (within those limits) is an important part of their beliefs.

I did not know that. Thankyou, Tony.

Thanks.

Texas Hold Em No limit. 112 players. 15,000 starting chips with 20 minute blinds and one rebuy up until I believe it was the 6th or 7th blind level. Started at 7p.m. ended at around 2:30 a.m.. Small tournament but a fun time.

Congratulations! Too bad for your buddy, though I'm sure he'll get reimbursed by insurance, fortunately. I'd like to visit AC sometime, just to see what it's like. I'm not a gambler though. Maybe when it warms up. I used to go when I was young and bring back the Salt Water Taffy.

Hard as it is for many to accept, I am only human and thus from time to time will make a mistake. Most of them however are intentional so you guys won't feel too bad about being around someone as infallible as me Smile

No. Not exactly. You referred to me as 'some people' coupled with an insult.
I didn't know that the infallibility of the Pope was a Catholic tenet.
And even so, a disagreement with that would not constitute an attack. Im better than that, thanks Bob.

And something about contributing to Deists seeming obnoxious to atheists. Another insult that I'm not taking lightly.
I think most atheists wouldn't find my calling the pope a fallible human obnoxious.
I respect all peoples' religions that guide them to live by a moral code.
Your implication that I do not is offensive.

Yes he will get reimbursed by insurance. The State Trooper gave the woman a ticket and told us that they ticket the person at fault. She has good insurance which was checked by the trooper on scene.

You may be disappointed by the new A.C. It is not family oriented as it once was. The boardwalk was really deserted but admittedly it was quite cold. But it was really barren. Talked to several employees including dealers and a few pit bosses and they are very concerned about their jobs. Same goes for waitress's. Most of them have a fear that any week maybe their last. A.C. is really hurting. They still have Taffy. Not sure it is the same.

The one thing I find interesting is the names of the streets just like in monopoly.

I apologize for that magicfish. I overreacted to your statement.

I guess I owe you a beer.
