    Re: Reparations for slavery

    I'd agree with that.

    I'll stick with reality rather than justice because justice as we all know is fickle and you can never be sure it is fair. Justice is blind.

    Now, I've made my point with...

    OK, a bit less contorted this time by the personal bifocals, thanks for that. I do feel I am on the logical side and you are on the empassioned side. You may be kinder and more passionate than me but...

    I want to love Americans, they just make it difficult.



    That didn't turn out very well for the poor French King who gave the USA the help. When his troops returned, trained in revolutionary...

    Re: Reparations for slavery

    I do not think that America is especially racist, although it has always seemed to be a little holier than thou whilst not realising the extent of its own racism.

    That's just plain bollox. Total utter misrepresentation of what I just said.

    To be clear as you didn't get it. Slavery is awful, it is appalling - but for the majority of man's time on earth it...
  14. Re: How Many People are Sticking around Until the end of VB6

    Quite agreed, I use Photoshop ver 8.0 or Photoshop CS, a very old version but I am extremely efficient when using it. Later versions suffer the bloat that seems to come with time and modernity. I am...

    Re: Reparations for slavery

    I have an axe to grind. My Saxon forebears were enslaved by the Normans in 1066 and they made us learn some of the bleedin' French! So we British should seek reparations from those Normans, ie. the...

    An exaggeration perhaps. You'll find that Boris gently pushes existing boundaries, has his actions tested, checked and then has to back off. His direction is the same, to get a deal from Europe...
