    Just a ship passing in the night.
    I have worked on three continents and Oceania as a teacher of social studies mostly and I am now retired. Debate forums can keep us honest and I like to read what others have to say when I am driven to learn something new. Learning is my hobby. Politically, I cannot tolerate liars and populist dogma, preferring to let the facts speak for themselves. I am, by temperament, an internationalist.

    We need a new globalist here. We hung the last one and when he rotted his body slipped out of the noose. What's your neck size son?

    Hi, Eloy.

    Welcome.

    I'm kinda internationalist too.

    Good luck finding decent debate. You might want to try the Clean Debate Zone.

    I live in the Flame Zone myself. We have rabies.

    What is "populist dogma?" Sounds too broad.

    But if it's rap music I'm with you.

    This is an open forum and you can say most anything you want as long as you keep it clean. I taught NATO and SEATO students both officers and enlisted. I took college social studies on a US Man-O-War underway in the South China Sea and the Long Beach State professor once had been tortured by the Nazi. Interesting class.

    Don't worry, these people don't bother you after the opening thread...

    What did you teach them while you were there? And what did they teach you?

    You don't have to reply here, and cause any more newbie flames. But that's what I'd like to hear and discuss.

    Many thanks, Gracie.

    Clean Debate Zone sounds good ti me,

    I see it as catch phrases calculated to stir emotions of the crowd rather than showing a good understanding of how government should work.

    And an interesting background.

    I taught world history and geography, American history, economics and law, My students taught me how to be a good teacher.
