I can't believe the women on Topix haven't eaten you alive for this post. I saw it but I just let it go as I knew you were going to catch hell for it, but that hasn't happened yet.
Personally I see no difference in not voting for a woman because she is a woman than not voting for a black guy just because he is black. Or not voting for a white person because they are white. That goes for any race of people. I vote for the person that I think is the best qualified and holds most closely to my views. That surely wouldn't by Hillary Clinton and that's for sure!
I don't know if you really feel the way about women as you posted or you are just trying to make the forum more interesting.
I feel if you truly feel that way that you are wrong, but that is your choice to make and live with.

I don't think it stands for anything, just the letter. Or there may have been something about two grandfathers whose names both started with "S".

Oh, there were definitely things about Truman I admire. Probably my favorite was completely unpolitical. I don't remember details, but something about his daughter performing somewhere and a newspaper critic wrote something very unflattering about the performance and Truman went off and basically threatened the guy. Mature, no. Unpresidential, yes. But I like the papa bear protecting his baby girl attitude personally.

yes,and let's not forget that he the guts to fire douglas macauther before the Korean war was over.i think that history has proven this was the rightc decision,even though it was very unpopular at the time.gen. mac showed a total lack of respect for his commander-in-chief and was planning to use nukes against china.God only knows what this could have led to.

I didn't say or imply that it did. But it is being carried on just as it was. It is wrong and dangerous to our country.

I think one of the real problems was MacArthur got too big for his pants. Truman was Commander in Chief, and MacArthur was taking on the role as the Commander and Chief and was going to Attack China without Trumans approval. He was determined to attack China so Truman cut him loose for insubordination.

He made the principled, but highly controversial decision to completely integrate the Armed Forces, with the Dixiecrats having a conniption fit. That took true leadership.
