    Do with that what you wish. I'll leave the last word to you. Based on previous posts, I think I'm safe predicting it will be more self-justification.
    I'm impressed that you managed to succinctly include mind-reading (if not outright misrepresentation, while complaining of exactly that - I TOLD you why I summarized your post) AND sanctimony in that teensy post. You should strive for brevity more often - it doesn't seem to cramp your style much.

    Enter the Church and wash away your sins. For here there is a hospital and not a court of law. Do not be ashamed to enter the Church; be ashamed when you sin, but not when you repent. – St. John Chrysostom

    You come across as feeling rather stressed. Is life OK? Maybe arguing so much on TWeb isn't helpful??

    Things are building rapidly to war with Iran. The build-up started with US withdrawal from the nuclear deal and sanctions are having the desired effect.

    Iran will typically 'act out' when their own economy or society is in collapse - "hey, look over THERE!!!!"

    We've seen this before. Remain calm and stay tuned.

    Meanwhile, Trump continues to run the table on the trade war as billionaires start to pull their money out of the high risk zone that China has become.

    On Shark Tank (which I used to watch frequently) one of the pieces of advice the "sharks" frequently gave the entrepreneurs was "you have to take production to China".... That may not be so wise anymore.

    Nah...I'm fine. Enjoying a nice cup of coffee and getting ready to mow my lawn!

    But thanks for the concern.

    The ultimate weakness of violence is that it is a descending spiral begetting the very thing it seeks to destroy...returning violence for violence multiplies violence, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars. Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that. Martin Luther King

    It was never wise.
