Either that, or he took Aerosmith's tune "Eat the Rich" literally, and has indigestion to this day!

The tune was meant to be "tongue-in-cheek":

It took courage to go, and much more courage to refuse to go. What are we to make, however, of those many Republicans who pretended to be ill? Thank God, they were diplomatic here, didn't want trouble. When I told them I regarded the occupation of Cyprus as a dirty colonialist war and would refuse to go, they taught me Chinese instead. British compromise works, ok?
Thanks from numan

I don't know whether to laugh or cry at the absurdity of this statement.

You didn't miss it, you were a part of it --- though no doubt only a tiny cog in the satanic juggernaut.

Where have I ever written that ALL Americans are egotistical barbarians? Obviously, some are not.

Just look at me. ---

I am reminded of what Mrs. Frances Trollope (the mother of the novelist) wrote in her 1830 classic, The Domestic Manners of the Americans:

"A single word indicative of doubt, that any thing, or every
thing, in that country is not the very best in the world,
produces an effect which must be seen and felt to be understood.
If the citizens of the United States were indeed the devoted
patriots they call themselves, they would surely not thus encrust
themselves in the hard, dry, stubborn persuasion, that they are
the first and best of the human race, that nothing is to be
learnt, but what they are able to teach, and that nothing is
worth having, which they do not possess.

The art of man could hardly discover a more effectual antidote to
improvement, than this persuasion; and yet I never listened to
any public oration, or read any work, professedly addressed to
the country, in which they did not labour to impress it on the
minds of the people."

I worked on a number of NASA programs while at Lockheed Martin. Specifically which one of those was a "satanic juggernaut". As usual, you are talking about something with no actual knowledge of the subject.

He probably meant ones like those I worked on that launched satellites that identified identified terrorist targets for drone strikes, to make the WORLD a safer place .

Not hot on your Seventeenth-Century English any more then? Memory fading fast, eh? At your age it is to be expected, I'm afraid!
