- Jul 12, 2002Dear Morphodyte. I really commend you on your knowledge on the
subject. I really apreciate your input.
a few comments on your post and perhaps you or others could comment
back on mine.

Empire is STILL there. If you notice the western side is Roman
Catholism and the the eastern side is Orthodox. This in turn affected
the form of writing as well as the West uses the Latin alpahbet and
the East (with the exception of Rumania and Albenia) uses Cyrillic
alphabet. One clear example of this is seen in the fomar Yugoslavia
where the line between the west and the east cuts right through the
middle. Serbs and Croats are basically same language meaning they are
basically same people. In fact the language is termed Serbo-Croatian.
What is the difference is that Serbs are Orthodox and uses Cyrillic
alphabet whereas Croats are Roman Catholic and uses Latin alphabet.
and now they hate each other. But that is well known. but there is
more on this line that divids the East and the West. As you know the
Roman Empire included Africa and that line is also visible. However,
it is not clearly distingishable unless you know something about
Arabic dialects. Arabic dialects could be divided into East and West
too and percise there that line falls in somewhere west of Eygypt. For
the dialects of Maghreb and that of Egypt and vastly different. Ok I
guess I ventured into off topic here.

went peachy after the Bismarck's Kulturekampf. I think they made the
deal. As for England all is lost after the Jocabite Rebellion and they
still hate Cromwell. But then England is not a major power anymore so
who care's now?

with Italian and american mafias) and a bogus masonic lodge P-2 which
have great deal to do with the death of JP I (which became a sub-plot
for the movie "Godfather III") and shooting of the current Pope.

striping away for the reason of National Security. So we must get
these terrorists, right? Like in rome we must protect from German
barbarians. but you know I think these barberians and roman officials
knew each other. hhhmmm I wonder bin Ladin and Bush .....

all back to Africa. (Like Liberia which is what that nation was
created) And right it was the state rights that was lost in the
American Civil War. Too bad the issue that used in the state rights
was slavery which had moral consequeces. I think we could again insert
the state's rights this time by bringing up the medical marijana.
But the next Constantine well.... After Nero that is Shrub, I think it
could Hirary Rodem Clinton. So it could be she.
