David, in your post,#6, you state: ".. And to rationalize is to live..". Now in this post you state: "I'm probably one the most realistic and honest persons you'll ever know of"<quoted text>I'm probably one the most realistic and honest persons you'll ever know of.. too much so in fact.. And living in a fantasy world has never been one of my weaknesses.. All your wishful thinkings are not going to change the fact that other (many) good people in this world are finally doing justice to one of the most remarkable groups of people on earth and in history.. If you can't cope with present developments in the USA you can always move to a backward country like Russia or Poland.. or best of all Vatican City.. But take a chastity belt along, for in all countries suggested they're very much given to rape.. Bon voyage!
How can a person that rationalizes also consider himself to be "realistic". Oh, I get it, that's more rationalization.
