I've been a member since it first started up and can log in with no problems, but I went to make my first post on Friday and it still hasn't shown up. I've even e-mailed the "contact us" twice to ask why and haven't been sent a response. Is there a secret handshake I missed? Anyone have any contact with the people there?

Buzz emailed me personally to join his forum.
In spite of two (2) previous lessons learned, I foolishly accepted.

Within weeks, a Moderator named "Big Incher" began editing my post comments to suit his personal agenda, and signed his name.

Upon my protest, ""American" publisher promptly put his bootheel upon the First Amendment with a reply of: "I dont want to hear about freedom of speech".

That's what's up with the CAI forum.

On this Memorial Day,
It is especially important to NOT forget those who served, are serving, and those who lost their lives to preserve our rights.

There is no guarantee of justice on the 'Net, however, and the irony of an American publisher distaining the very foundation of his own livelihood mocks two and a quarter centuries of American blood on the battlefield.

I watched a movie yesterday evening. Didn't get the title of it but it was produced around 1945 and was about Vets returning home to settle back in to the civilian side of life. A tear jerker all the way, it was very inspiring to follow the several characters of the story lines. What hell many of them endured while picking up the pieces. Pa

Pa,

The movie that you saw is called "The Best Years of Our Lives" (1946) ... One of the absolute best war movies ever made, and one that everyone should take a couple of hours to watch ... It is just as relevant for Korea, Vietnam, Iraq, Afghanistan, or wherever you may (or may not) have served ... It's become something of a Memorial Day classic.

The handless Vet in "The Best Years of Our Lives" was Harold Russel who lost his hands in WWII. He won an Oscar for his performance in the film. His last acting role was in Dogtown in 1997.

My attention span is too feeble to watch any movie.
My wife could divorce me for just that perhaps.

Hell, I haven't even sat down for "The World's Fastest Indian", even though I think the actor is one of the best, for whatever that is worth. It is still not enough for me to sit still.

But still, the sacrifice that ALL of our countries' militaries lay before us is humbling beyond all description.

Too bad some do not want to hear about it. Or acknowledge it. Or respect it in the least. I guess some die for that right too.

Not really on topic, but since you brought it up, this link is appropriate.
