This goes beyond taking positions and stating views. It has to do with factual claims and verifiable world history. Yes, we probably do have that in common, though it wouldn't be apparent from a couple of flippant, off-the-cuff posts on fairly complex issues. Btw, I thought we were making inroads as far as exploring the facts. It seems you're not interested in the facts I have to share. I'm not totally surprised. The reason I talk to myself is because no one else will listen.
