I don't normally get picky about minor grammatical errors - especially on a forum where members cannot edit - but every time MY RETURN makes a minor mistake, you attack him. So, in the words of another forum member:

How does it feel? Every time you attack MY RETURN for a minor grammatical error, he can remember this post. I might even remind you too.

That's why I qualified my post with 'statistics and polls can be misleading' - but thanks for your observation meneer kaas...

Thanks for this CP - a very interesting article and quite reassuring in many ways. I still find it disappointing however. It's like teaching that the world is flat alongside the science of astronomy and telling kids to make of it what they will (and I know the pedants among us here will now insist that the Earth is technically an oblate spheroid). I hoped we would have moved on from these medieval beliefs in the 21st century.

Re: I LIKE AMERICANS

I realise this thread has died the death now and given way to more uplifting and inspiring social comment from Bote - this time the pressing issue of 'porn over real girls' whatever that means.

As a footnote I will say this though, and then give way to Bote's important mission:

I am at this moment watching the speech at the UN by President Obama. I feel compelled to say that he is covering all of the issues we have discussed in this thread (and more of course). There are some things I can't agree with and there has already been a few clanging tones of hypocrisy, but by god what a fantastic speech. This is truly a speech by a world statesman - well delivered and compelling in it's obvious sincerity.

The only problem is that the UN almost to the same degree as it's predecessor the League of Nations, is a 'talking shop' and it remains to be seen what will come of this great statesmanship.

I have feeling that the tide is turning when I listen to erudite and heart-felt world view Obama has stated today. When you compare his ability as a speaker to that of his predecessor, it is clear why there was no other solution than war to the complicated problems we face in the world today. As a major world leader G W Bush was not capable of peaceful resolution through dialogue - I doubt he would have even been able to spell the word.

..and now back to the porn.

A couple of corrections to my post (I was distracted by the speech when I was writing):

I was referring to the points in the thread about the middle east and should have said '...all of the issues about the middle east we have discussed in this thread...'

should have read:

Anyway, I have listened to it again and I still think it is a great speech. It is important to watch the whole thing - I see that there are only clips of it available now on the BBC and it sort of loses some of it's power when you see clips out of context.

There's more substance in that than this tedious argument.

I catch errors they make too. I use to say stop playing dumb then I realized they're not playing. :(
