I'm a Christian, but I believe in reincarnation. And while I'm no expert, I think that when you help someone in need (as Christians are supposed to do, and that requirement is of course not unique to Christianity, it's common to all religions, I think), you help yourself and you help the part of Go...

Coming from a Buddhist perspective, that's not true. For example, it would seem that someone who will be in a wheelchair their entire life was condemned by bad karma. This is what my friend, a 16-year-old boy who will be in a wheelchair all his life believed. He thought he was being punished for wh...

...As for Harrison, he led a fine campaign, but lucky for my country he wasn't as smart as the great men who planned Overlord. Ike was one smeg of a organizer. Probably one of his greatest strengths that also aided him well as President. I think we can all be thankful they didn't put Monty in charg...

I mean how the camera moves around a lot and shakes even on board the ships. I have talked to other people and they like it, but I just find it a little annoying. I also agree with the idea that Lee is a wiener. I wouldn't have taken that crap form the big guy at the bar in the political episode. I...

...But there were no aboriginals, just about 300 militia and regulars. There were about 1500 reserve militia elsewhere, but they weren't needed. As the long story goes... If you say so. ...The same general who killed Techusmeth (please correct the spelling, I know it's wrong) was in command when it...

I'm also curious to know if you were taught how and why the U.S. lost the Vietnam War, or just that we lost.

Chanaguay is my favourite. It was there that an army of over 3000 American regulars marched north along the St. Lawrence and crossed with the intent on taking Montréal. They were confronted by about 300 French Canadian Militia and British Regulars who had entrenched themselves near a swampland....A...

It is patriotic compared to the Canaidan system. Your system is a national system, controlled from Washington, unless I've been misinformed, while in Canada..." In the U.S., the curriculum for public schools is determined by the individual states and the local school districts. In the 1990's the Fe...
