Surprised a history professor is unable to tell the difference.

Swastikas in American buildings

I like the walkway in the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Am I a Nazi for liking it?

A spokesman for the county council said: "Plans for the County Hall building were drawn up from 1908 and our records show that the architect was ordered to finalise the plans in October 1926.

"Given similar designs are featured on a number of other public buildings of similar age across the world, including churches and universities, it is important that the symbol is seen in its architectural context.

"This part of County Hall has Grade II listed status and any changes to this frontage could be extremely costly to the public purse and would have to be approved by English Heritage."


There are also many buildings in the US bearing that symbol & predated the Nazis.

So Dr Clyde if you hate that symbol so much, write to your congressman & get them demolished :-)

Just for Dr Clyde....

How the world loved the swastika

...take note: It was also used by American military units during WWI.

Nobody has ordered you to do anything. All that was done was to ask for a clear & understood answer to your statement:

We disagree what should be done after The Far Superior People consign them to the Toilet of History


You've said that you're not inferior to anyone. Well, neither are you superior.

Sirius B...

Of course I am not. I do not believe I have any Right to Order anyone.

Since I never said, nor inferred I was Superior to anyone.

The foundation of your statement is very interesting.

I find that VERY interesting!

The foundation is underlined - Are you now saying that wasn't you?

Hey Clyde, after all that furore over an avatar, what would your answer to this be?

Who cares?

Posting, as a positive, a Swastika Avatar. Is OK with you?

Oh absolutely!

You see I do know history. It was originally an ancient Indian symbol that got hijacked by Nazi's.

As a history professor, you should have known that :-)

Sorry guys, I've been remiss in keeping a check on my account.

An external rig (duly authorised) has been erroring out but due to the owner's relocation, I cannot access.

Fortunately it is added to BAM so have selected NNT then unattach.

It has 4 tasks remaining (14/4/17) so sorry wingmen.

One thing Trump has done is to flush the hypocrites out of their closets.

"A tad puzzled as to why they didn't debate the visit of the Saudi King or the Chinese President.
I object to both of those getting the red carpet treatment and welcomed with open arms.
Were the LBGT community asleep when the Saudi's were here? Homosexuality is punishable by death over there.
Come to think of it the BBC were very quiet too.
And where shall we even start on the Chinese? "

MP's debate Trump's visit

Well that's the "sin" issue taken care, now just two left.

Clyde, with your love of the constitution, does it not say in the 2nd paragraph:

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness."

So can you provide a clear & understood explanation for your term:

"The Far Superior People"?

The text emboldened suggests a deity involved, so how can you be an atheist loving such a document?
