Let us welcome Count D’Haricots.
Welcome to this tiny little slice of internet heaven.
We will take Counts points one by one and explain my responses to them.
“Your Comment on Free Speech is “Awaiting Moderation“???? The irony is palpable!” The exclamation point could indicate that your intent was sarcastic.
How many times has this been explained at b4v. When you make a comment for the first time on any wordpress blog, it goes into the moderation que. Your comments have now been approved and you will no longer have this problem.
“You might as well just written, shut the fuck up Count. And then deleted me.”
I was tempted. I did not give into that temptation.
“You do as you wish; you are in no position to judge my people as we do as we believe.”And neither are you. Spelling God out is no different than saying “God Bless You” after someone sneezes.
And where did I do any judging?
“However, in Germany we refer…” Partial quote. A couple of questions here. Are you stating that you are German and are you stating that you are a German speaker?”I offered a reasonable (and informed) observation on the more proper use of a foreign language and I get flippant rejoinder.” This statement would seem to negate the above statement.
To my knowledge and I have my wife here to back me up, there is no common Deutsch equivalent to the American “Country Boy” There is also no Fannisch word for this concept because by definition all Old Order Mennonites are country boys and girls. Use what ever word you wish to, to define me.
“seems to me your ideals are higher than your capacities.”
That is matter of opinion.
“:If the Constitution is to survive, it must be applied as written; there is no clause in said Constitution for an armed rebellion or civil disobedience as a remedy. We further objected in principal to the Patriot Act (I wrote extensively at that other blog) and the agencies that grew out of that Act; fruit from the poisoned tree.”
Two phrases “for an armed rebellion or civil disobedience as a remedy.”
Neither one of those were a lawful remedy on April 19, 1775 either.
I hope that this has made things a bit clearer.
