Re Charles Harpoles comments concerning LoTW don't bother me at all. He is entitled to his opinion.

However, and I know this is no place for this, his comment about America having little standing in the rest of the world infuriates me. The rest of the world can go to hell and would if not for America. Rest of the world have a problem, call America. Need money, call America. Need resources, call America. The world called on America three times to save it's butt and at enormous cost we did.

Guess my patriotism is showing, lets bring everyone home, close our borders to everyone, arm ourselves to the teeth and tell the rest of the world to go to hell.

I have a better idea. Let's let the politicians fight this battle and save out passions for the pileups and contests. We're HAMS first and foremost. This kind of flag-waving, flag-burning and sabre-rattling is not in our best interests as HAMS. I have my own thoughts on what my own (and other) governments are doing wrong but I'll be damned if I'm going to project those thoughts to a gentleman or lady 8000 miles away who I just spent 10 minutes calling!

If you really can't separate the country's politics from the country's hams, then just don't work hams from that country.
