  1. Actually Obs, FDR was willing to have America join the war prior to Pearl Harbor, because he felt that Britain had to survive to be the base from which to defeat Germany and. told Churchill so, but he had to protect himself from the anti war lobby led by Charles Lindbergh. Pearl Harbor gave FDR the tool to overcome that opposition. America could have just fought Japan, there was no need at that time for them to take on Germany too, regardless of any paper war declaration, but they did. The End , cos a man convinced against his will is n'eer convinced at all.
  2. Sprechen sie Deutsch ? Without the US, for whatever reason, your answer would have been yes.
  3. I bet that thought was right at the front of the minds of all of those eighteen and twenty year olds Obs, as they died 4000 miles from home and twenty miles from England.
  4. How did Indian food make it to first place ahead of bacon and fish and chips - mystery to me.
  5. Ambassadors, politicians, Trump has made them all redundant and they don't like it. He has proved that a business man with a strong personality gets things done. No point in anyone trying to insult him he doesnt care. With the absolutely lunatic left ranting and raving idiocy, I thank God every day for Trump. 3 to 3.5% recurring GDP, every one who wants a job has a job, including all minorities, there are 10 million jobs still available, wages across the board have risen dramatically, taxes are lower than ever, interest rates are low and there is no inflation, there are no more Isis beheading videos etc, etc. Don't tell me we would be better off with a stuffed shirt like Clement Attlee, or George Brown, or Tony Blair - real trailblazers. Maybe the special relationship has something to do with the white crosses in Normandy.

    Butties

    Been a very happy Texan for fifty years now, but there is one thing that I still miss - a bacon butty ! In the fifties, there was Duva bread, doughy, white and tasty, you could have made dentures from the teeth imprint left on every bite. This plus a half pound of bacon with the fat hanging over the edge was to die for, literally ! In the days of factory canteens, my 10:00 am break at the British Aluminum was two hand cut thick slices of bread, slathered with butter, layered with thick cut bacon, topped with a fried egg and cut diagonally, the egg yoke running down the sides. Yum yum, gimme the HP sauce ! On the other hand, there's a lot to be said for two fat Cumberland sausages, split and loaded onto bread. Then, of course, there's tomato sausage ......... Which is y'alls favorite, they must be healthy, I'm still here.
  7. You got it! Screeeeeech, scraaaaaaanch, scruuuuuuutch, Oops, bum note there Paddy. Sorry.
  8. Maybe I could seranade you Dizz - which do you prefer the scale of C or D ?
  9. I think the human race is pretty great and the world is in better shape than ever ( except for liberal socialists!). All this whining about how evil and destructive we are, no mention of the great developments since the Victorian age. The air and water quality is better than it's ever been, essential services and they are essential to a civilized world, have been engineered to almost perfection. Developments in agriculture enable food to be grown in previously barren places. Still they moan ! A week after it was announced that global warming (as it was then) was about to kill us all, New York City got buried in six feet of snow ! Some people will only be happy when we are back in caves, which will only happen when gullible politicians force it on us. Surprised we are discussing this, isn't the world scheduled to end in 2000? Oops, my mistake, I think that's been moved up till next week.
  10. Me too. The only instrument left in the Beaumont school orchestra was a violin. I wanted a saxophone so I could join the Glenn Miller band ! After two months of screeching scales, my parents forcibly removed me and the instrument from the house. Maybe without their intervention, I may have been the subject of this video!
  11. Bravo Asp, as an engineering (scientist) I couldn't put it better.
  12. Well put Asp. However, the thing always conveniently overlooked is that without the participation of India, Pakistan and China any discussion becomes irrelevant. The peoples of these countries are just beginning to feel the benefits which we have enjoyed for years, jet travel, automobiles, large houses, do you think that they are going to cut back on those things now ? Of course it's all irrelevant, cos climate changes are natural and cyclic, but of course, you can't redistribute wealth with that principle.
  13. Oh, that's sad. It used to be a proud moment for me when I walked in my uniform - 13th Warrington Scout Group, St Elfin's Own.
  14. Just watched the video of Walking Day. Oh how the mighty have fallen, where were all of the marching bands and the folk running out to give money to the walkers? Looks like being a cheap afternoon at Victoria Park if the fair is still there.
  15. Ah, so you understand point tw?
