*I'm* not the one who wrote the first item, I was just responding to a
question from Monica.

I chose not to just let it lay there as I felt it required a response as it
posed one of the major questions facing the US and the world today: what do
we do when we see evil on the march - go 'tsh, tsh!' or stop the evil doer.

Ever hear of the poem, 'The Hangman?' and the concept that all that is
necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing?

That's my point.  You didn't want to see it, don't read it.

BTW, I'm not usually this hostile; it's just that slaugthering innocent
people in great numbers and/or driving them from their homes tends to
irritate me.

So *excuse me*!
