  • I apparently did miss it. In fact, I did not even see the word "Bush" in "it". Is the word Bush there in TorgoX's post? Or might TorgoX be concerned about the balance of payments and profligate spending by the US?

    You tell me. Or maybe TorgoX sneakily changed his posting. Maybe I need to check the Google cache.

    Help me here, maybe I missed it.

    And I even looked at the links TorgoX cited, rather than just looking at what he wrote and what he quoted. Mr. Buffett did not appear to use the word "Bush" eit
    • Is it possible that you are putting words into his post that are not there?

      Not only is it possible, it is common [perl.org].

      Might you be a little oversensitive about something?

      You can tell if he yawns or claims you are boring [perl.org] him. (Something that can be done by simply presenting facts)

      And, if you aren't careful, he'll start resorting to personal attacks [perl.org].
      • Thanks for your comments and links, phillup. But in all the excitement of you and pudge going to the races, pudge might have forgotten to comment on my original post.

        I don't post too often. I guess it makes each one seem precious. Maybe not precious, but thoughtful. Well, maybe not thoughtful, but rare.

        pudge sure is a damn good perl dude. I wonder if a damn good perl dude could put up a meta-page of when torgox mentions pudge, and when pudge mentions torgox. I tried googling:

        +torgox +pudge site:perl.org

        but it is a lot to look at by hand. I even tried

        +torgox +pudge hitler nazi site:perl.org

        to see if Godwin's Law applies more to one or the other. The hits made me think about:

        How many left-wing racists can I name?

        Help me out here... anyone?

        And then I started thinking about how the "right" has it made, grammatically. How come they get to be "right"? How come the "left" is left with left? I mean, if I even tried to change the paradigm and say there are "wrong thinkers" and "right thinkers", where would I be? Left with a bunch of right thinkers.

        My head hurts. On the right.
        • How many left-wing racists can I name?

          Help me out here... anyone?


          I can name a bunch. Start with some of the communist leaders of past and present, in the Soviet Union, China, North Korea, Cuba. Che Guevara is a good example.
          • Oh Lord, pudge. I really don't have time for this. But I am only human, so just this once on this thread I will let you draw me in to a response with a turn-around time of less than 8 hours. (how you manage to keep on top of this, I have no idea!)

            Thanks for your response to my request for a citation of a left-wing racist. You chose to cite Che Guevara of the many left-wing racists you claim to be aware of. Leaving aside the issue of whether we can agree that all leaders of communist countries are actu
            • Leaving aside the issue of whether we can agree that all leaders of communist countries are actually leftists

              If they are communists, by definition, yes, they are, unless you have some new definition of "leftist" that I've never heard of.

              "Thirty-five years after his death, Che lives on in the minds of young people struggling and fighting against the same inequalities that he dedicated his life to getting rid of - poverty, racism, and ultimately capitalism and imperialism."

              And that's bullshit. Guevara
        • pudge sure is a damn good perl dude.

          No arguments there.

          I actually used his book [ptf.com] on MacPerl for a while to teach Perl. Like many things "Mac", it was much easier than on other systems. Part of that was because of the very nicely done book.

          I wonder if a damn good perl dude could put up a meta-page of when torgox mentions pudge, and when pudge mentions torgox.

          I was thinking of something similar when trying to look back and figure out what the hell set him off about me... different characters of course.
          • Well, it looks to me that my work here is done. Mr. Nandor might disagree, but here is what I believe I have accomplished in four posts.

            I provided Mr. Nandor with an opportunity to realize that torgox had said nothing about Bush in the cited post. DONE.

            I noted Mr. Nandor's perl prowness. DONE.

            I expressed the hope that Mr. Nandor would educate me, from his personal knowledge, or by citation, about the racism of Che Guevara. DONE. (I get educated in the most unusual places- it is a nice thing about bei
