It is not disrespectful at all. You say something in this forum and you tow the line.
If you cannot back up what you say then you become cannon fodder for those who understand the subject in detail. It's the way it is. It does not
matter how old you are , or what conditions your life is in.
It may be the way it is for you but not for me. We will have to disagree then. Why do we have to be so hard on each other? A little empathy goes a
long way in life.
Why does it mean so much to you?
(Wow, this thread is moving forward at lightspeed.....)
Disagreeing is absolutely ok. And, I am not being hard in my opinion.
I am on in my years, but not as old as Typer claims he is. When it comes down to explaining events in your life, if they are not truthful, then what
is the sense of relaying any of that "Information".
Where it becomes important to me, is when history gets involved, and if you have something to contribute to it. Now you are in a different place. When
you invoke a historical event and then say you have something to add to what is officially on the record, then you get the ears of some serious
people. The scenario goes from entertainment to scrutiny. Historical records people live for proof and evidence, as that is their holy grail. What
they may uncover will be what is taught in the future as the truth, as we know it. This is important stuff.
I think it was Mark Twain that said "If you always tell the truth, then you have nothing else you have to remember."
I have great empathy for every person, but you are always judged by what you say on this planet, and that will never change. If you always rely on
defending yourself with the truth, then you have nothing to fear, because history itself will be the best council you will ever have.
