Jamesaritchie – 2008-05-27 1:05 PM Well, I’m not a pacifist. My experience has been that if violence doesn’t solve the problem, you didn’t use enough violence.

For some reason, I found that statement hilarious, James. I expect you didn’t mean it that way, but it just tickled my funnybone.

But one of my best friends is a Quaker, and the one thing we always agree on is respect for anyone willing to put on a uniform and give his life for God and country.

Exactly my point.




Actually, I like the statement because it makes a serious point, but does come across as funny.  Of course, the first time I heard the word “pacifist,” I thought the person said “pass the fist,” so I hit him.
