My conscience is intact. It bangs on the inside of my skull with a hammer when I've gone too far.
Ackks, the punishment did not fit the crime. I overreacted. Please accept my apology for smacking you so hard. You've been a good member here for 12 years. I don't recall a single instance of you causing any trouble. You didn't deserve what you got from me and I regret taking you to task as I did.
You run a tight ship, Para. But you're a good man. And so is Ackks.
"Some things are apparent. Where government moves in, community retreats, civil society disintegrates and our ability to control our own destiny atrophies. The result is: families under siege; war in the streets; unapologetic expropriation of property; the precipitous decline of the rule of law; the rapid rise of corruption; the loss of civility and the triumph of deceit. The result is a debased, debauched culture which finds moral depravity entertaining and virtue contemptible." -- Justice Janice Rogers Brown

"America is at that awkward stage. It's too late to work within the system,,,, but too early to shoot the bastards." -- Claire Wolfe "If we let things terrify us, life will not be worth living." -- Seneca the Younger, Roman Stoic philosopher "The dominant media is no more ``mainstream`` than leftists are liberals." -- me
I don’t even know what happened. But as I mentioned before in similar words, some people may think you’re a sum bitch but I no sum bitch in your position as ever given an apology or retracted any punitive actions they’ve taken.
I salute you.
"It did not really matter what we expected from life, but rather what life expected from us. We needed to stop asking about the meaning of life, and instead to think of ourselves as those who were being questioned by life – daily and hourly. Our answer must consist not in talk and meditation, but in right action and in right conduct. Life ultimately means taking the responsibility to find the right answer to its problems and to fulfill the tasks which it constantly sets for each individual." Viktor Frankl, Man's Search for Meaning, 1946.
