  • Just my 2 cents worth, but I could not agree more. This darn horse has been beat to death. At some point several months ago this 'debate' ceased being informative for me and became something much more like watching a person exposing their personal psychosis to public viewing. It is disturbing to see just how resentful some people can become of achievement and success in other...

  • Yeah I have all that pay information. It really is very interesting. US Major General was actually a pretty darn good paying job. Much better than today.

  • Sadly I see that Dr. Simpson's sage advice was ignored. What were those wise words again? "I think we'd all appreciate it, Mr. Rose, if you reassessed how you choose to come across here. It's way past irritating; it's become boring and tedious." Oh well Doctor it was a very generous and kind try! Red

  • Mr. Rose wrote-"would you please, for the good of Mr. Weeks and the rest of the boarders--if not for me--do what you previously assured us you would do?" I doubt that Mr. Weeks needs your help. Please do not presume to speak for other 'boarders'. Is this a request for the rest of us posters to vote? Do you really want us to vote which of you two, we, 'boarders', would wish would...

  • Sorry, but this post could very easily be construed as having all the signs of flame 'bait'. I see that you are a very new member. If you are sincere I would suggest you take the next few days and review the archives -- this horse has been beaten to death here on numerous occasions. Just my 2 cents-- too hot for the trout to be biting-- guess that is why it is called 'fishing' and...

  • Professor Simpson- I much appreciate your patience in continuing to conduct a dialogue with Mr. Rose. I certainly hope that you understand that I believe that I speak for many of the regular posters here when I say that Mr. Rose's postings and biased ideas lost all creditability several months ago. At least for me I stopped reading Mr. Rose's postings several weeks ago. The only...

  • Why? I understood you were leaving the group. You sure take a long time to say good bye.

  • In the interest of accuracy, none of the people signing the telegram were Army officers. I think they were Kentucky politicans or leading citizens of Kentucky. It seems to me that as some others have suggested this whole incident's occurrence in relation to the announcing of the Emancipation Proclamation is awfully significant.

  • Hey Wayne- Do not ask a squid about the meaning of 'Duty,Honor,Country' because they do not know what it means! (VBG) The motto of the United States Naval Academy is 'Honor, Courage, Commitment'. Whatever the heck that means! (VBG) Honestly, to the extent that your Naval Academy buddies may have commented on 'Duty, Honor, Country' they may have been speaking from their general...
