I over reacted and shouldn't have said anything at all. I don't have a problem with anyone except for maybe the Dutch as I have said before. I do enjoy reading post but should learn to just stay out. May I still call you pudding pants ?
warspite1

Me too.

Quite right too - only one thing I can't stand more than those who are intolerant of other people's cultures... and that's the Dutch.

Can you call me Pudding Pants? Why rogo727, coming from you sir, I would consider it an honour.


I also hate intolerant people. Especially people I hate. And let's not discuss the filthy Dutch.
warspite1

How 'bout no, you crazy Dutch *******


Yeah. Those Dutch are ***** ** *******! And they are so intolerant.
warspite1

Yeah and they all wear these, all the time...the crazy Dutch *******







No wonder they hate everyone. Stupid people!
warspite1

In order to rid the forum of intolerant people, who I cannot tolerate, I vote that we ban the Dutch from ever posting here again. That'll teach the crazy Dutch *******.

No more Dutch! Are you with me forumites? Grab your torches and pitchforks - we gonna drive intolerance from the forum...


It is about time we clamped down on intolerance. From this point forward no one of Dutch origin may post on this forum. This rule includes all people are 1/128th, or more, Dutch. Any person who has less than 1/128th Dutch blood may apply for special papers.

I sound like the oh so tolerant people in the U.S. that do things to the left of center.
warspite1

Well I think the plan is working...haven't seen any Crazy Dutch ******* on the forum today.


And those intolerant Dutch scum better hope we do not see them around here. By the way, I am not comfortable ignoring some other groups. It is intolerant to hate just one race, country, creed or region. What say you??
warspite1

Old people... I don't like old people...Crazy Old *******. Grab your torches and pitchforks (again) we are going to drive these peeps from the forum in the name of er...tolerance.


I agree. I hate old people mainly because they are intolerant of younger people. And if there is one thing I can't stand it is intolerant people. Pitchfork in hand.


Wow this must be the most imbedded quotes I've seen yet!



I know it was a joke.

I just felt it had been going on now for a while and got concerned that someone didn't get the joke and got offended so I just wanted to post my support of the Dutch people. No offence was intended.

Note that I can imbed even more quotes.

Haven't seen the movie yet, but I look forward to watching it. Just out of curiousity, how many of the posters in this thread have actually seen it?


I have seen Lincoln twice. It is a captivating movie, with no "action" as we expect from modern cinema. Instead we have a study of just what Lincoln was thinking, why and how he resolved the obvious conflicts he faced with those decisions he made. It is a character study as much as anything else. But just because I say it lacks action is not to imply it is less than riveting. The audiences I was with watching this movie held their collective breaths(except during Lincolns stories)! Daniel Day Lewis delivers an absolute mind-blowing performance as Lincoln. The viewer has the sense of actually watching Lincoln on screen. There are a lot of laugh out loud moments from the stories Lincoln tells, especially the one about George Washington's picture being in a British water closet. Lincoln had to do a lot of back room deals, an outright bribery, in order to get enough Democrats to vote WITH the Republicans to pass the 13th amendment. This under the table dealing is rarely mentioned in history, and it shows Abraham Lincoln to be a master.

You must see the movie.

Not only that but Lincoln lives. Most people don't know this but Booth's gun misfires. Mary Lincoln, tired of living like a queen, spirits Abe away. They both settle in China and live out their lives in TOTAL anonymity.

Took the wife to see the movie and I will say she stayed awake which is a good thing. I had to pay to see both Gettysburg and schindlers list twice because she asked me to many questions during the movies. The thin red line she simply fell asleep and band of brothers had to much action to fall asleep. I will give it a A-. I will buy it when it comes out on blue ray

ILS why were you taking rogo's wife to the pictures. By my reckoning she's seen Gettysburg and Schindlers List four times now!! No wonder she fell asleep.

I hesitate to revive the debate, but there's an interesting editorial on CNN today:
http://www.cnn.com/2013/02/07/opinion/seymour-movies-history/index.html?hpt=op_t1

(The main beef is the inaccuracy of the vote of the Representatives from Connecticut.)

To add my own two cents, the "peace commissioners" were never empowered to offer a surrender, which meant there was no possibility of an immediate peace. Jefferson Davis sent them to get an idea of what terms Lincoln was prepared to offer, and Lincoln had already stated that the southern states would have to rejoin the Union and accept Federal authority. In other words, surrender of the Confederacy. Many historians believe that Davis simply wanted to get those terms as formal and public as he could, to re-energize the southerners into continuing the fight.
