"A lesser people" ?????????????????

hahahahaha!

You make me sound like Hitler or something. lol. Listen, I don't believe any specific group of people are any better than any other. I just believe that America gives it's citizens the most personal and financial freedoms, and that is why we have excelled in everything for so long.

For once, let us discuss this with level heads. No wide, sweeping statements or stereotypes -- when things are said like that, they are applied to millions and millions of people in a country, which is blatantly not right. You can dislike some people's attitudes or whatever, but don't categorize a whole country by it. I agree with Rick. And let's just move on.

I like Noon's board constitution with my amendments. Shall we use one of the two American amending formulas from now on, or one of Canada's 5 amending formuals?

Rick, how can you say that the US has better financial and personal freedoms than anyone else when you have never lived any other countries' freedoms, therefore not having any knowledge whatsoever of anything outside the US concerning this?

I'm inclined to agree with you Sam, but I honeslty don't think it's going to be worth the effort to discuss it. Why doesnt everyone just agree to disagree on this topic ? eh??

SC forum is the best on the net. I've only had trouble on the Hockey side, but that is cool now. lol

Seriously, we have some very intelligent people on this forum. I'm about the oldest at 46. Is anyone older? I've been around sports, especially football and baseball since the early 60's. I know a lot just from memory. I don't know much about Hockey-because I live in the deep south-Mobile, Alabama.

I study baseball history quite frequently. Baseball is my game and favorite sport-but again we have the best people of any forum.

Funny stuff. I especially liked #7. I don't really see it too much on this board, but on another board I post at it happens often. It's always pretty funny. If you want to fight with someone over something they said on a message board, you really need a life.
