    If you're a Politician voter memory is a detriment.

    Begs the question. What is rape? My dad wouldn't participate when a group of Rangers were trading food for sex while bivouacked in Sicily. Documented in An Infantryman's Diary. He said the girl looked so hurt and sad that he just gave her the food and left. I believe it was because he grew up with Italian kids ( leaned to speak Polish, Italian and English in that order) that he could connect with the girl as human better than the other guys. He knew the sex wasn't her choice.

    Prostitution isn't rape...although when entered into for survival reasons, the moral line becomes gray pretty quickly...
    We have backpackers here (not at the moment) who run out of money and go pick up someone that has a place for them to stay and eat...I had a backpacker come up to me a few years ago (who's first language obviously wasn't English) and she just said she was hungry...someone else may have entered into an "agreement"...I just gave her a fifty and walked away. I try live life on the straight and narrow when its comes to living beings (I have to sleep at night) - Your Dad sounds similar.

    I know you lot are gonna get angry with me, but why did Stalin get the A bomb so early and the British secret Service leader escaped to the USSR IN the early 1960's. Just believe in the Allied all time goodness. If the Red agents had decided to get your bomb it would be Stalin's. Just what WC warned about Fdr who was was already badly damaged By untreated RR-disease.

    Because they cannot treat your massively high blood bressure your brain will fry. Even today. We have the medication but not Everybody takes it. Even now. FDR had no choice. But Die.

    Well it is known FDR had high blood pressure and that killed him. Towards the end of war FDR was not happy about Winston and was more and more in co-operation with Stalin. Wonder if there is a documentary book on FDR and his increasing problems with blood pressure and decision making.
