Somebody is confused by every post I make lol.  What is confusing about the above two posts confused people?

Since there is no dislike rating, people use the confused one.

It usually means you have caught the attention of someone who disapproves of your posts (or you). An opponent lol.

Good song btw. Bit controversial though, wonder what the IRA have to say about her.

I think they would first cry over the fallen children of Ireland.

I think they would appreciate the homage to their fallen brothers who died for the cause. 

The call to end the violence though, will fall on deaf ears in the IRA until Ireland is unified.

True. The British did what they do best. They're teared apart Ireland. The Loyalists were backed by the government. Although the IRA began to do some questionable things, I cannot fault them overall.

They definitely did some questionable things.  One they turned to crime, victimizing fellow Irish, to support the movement.  And two they started to target British civilians with terror attacks. 

My family's involvement pre-dated the bomb use.  They were snipers, which is a much cleaner way of fighting, due to the reduced collateral damage.  My family never supported bombings, but it didn't seem to strike home for the British until then.

It makes me less judgmental of other cultures that resort to terrorism.  As much as I don't support those type of means to an end, I always ask myself why does this person feel they must? 

Despite our history supporting the movement, any time a bombing would make the news my grandmother would cry and tell me that wasn't our way.

I have spoken to a couple of Irishmen in the past and the majority or Irish folk, according to them, do not support the IRA at all and many would rather not remember the days of the Army. But support for the Unification of Ireland still has strong support.

Woah so your kin were IRA? Is that what inspired you to join the military? And well it hit home for the British because they did nearly off the PM at the time. She was, and is, despised by many Brits.

With the exception of islamic terrorism, the word in itself must be used in context. Today it's used liberally to simply malign a cause which interferes with an agenda. Any act of violence is labeled terrorism without any consideration of the intentions.

As the purity of the IRA movement declined the support for it declined as well.  Also, since protestants and catholics have made peace under the Republics flag it makes it unsavory to talk about. 

I use the term IRA loosely, which isn't really the most accurate way to speak about the various forms of resistance, but it's the easiest way to get the idea across to people.

My kin have a history of fighting against the British that goes back 700+ years, my family's involvement ended in about 1900, so we actually never were involved the IRA, but it's historical predecessors.

    • Net pay after taxes. If you don't agree, think about this: If you were a trader and started off in China with silk that cost 100 rupees and came to India, and you had to pay total 800 rupees taxes at every small kingdom along the way, and then sold your goods for 1000 rupees, you'd have 100 rupees left, right? If your daswandh is on the gross, that's 100 rupees, meaning you have nothing left. Obviously, you owe only 10% of 100, not 10% of 1000. No, it's 10% before bills and other expenses. These expenses are not your expenses to earn money. They are consumption. If you are a business owner, you take out all expenses, including rent, shop electricity, cost of goods sold, advertising, and government taxes. Whatever is left is your profit and you owe 10% of that.  If you are an employee, you are also entitled to deduct the cost of earning money. That would be government taxes. Everything else is consumption.    
    • No, bro, it's simply not true that no one talks about Simran. Where did you hear that? Swingdon? The entire Sikh world talks about doing Simran, whether it's Maskeen ji, Giani Pinderpal Singh, Giani Kulwant Singh Jawaddi, or Sants. So what are you talking about? Agreed. Agreed. Well, if every bani were exactly the same, then why would Guru ji even write anything after writing Japji Sahib? We should all enjoy all the banis. No, Gurbani tells you to do Simran, but it's not just "the manual". Gurbani itself also has cleansing powers. I'm not saying not to do Simran. Do it. But Gurbani is not merely "the manual". Reading and singing Gurbani is spiritually helpful: ਪ੍ਰਭ ਬਾਣੀ ਸਬਦੁ ਸੁਭਾਖਿਆ ॥  ਗਾਵਹੁ ਸੁਣਹੁ ਪੜਹੁ ਨਿਤ ਭਾਈ ਗੁਰ ਪੂਰੈ ਤੂ ਰਾਖਿਆ ॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥ The Lord's Bani and the words are the best utterances. Ever sing hear and recite them, O brother and the Perfect Guru shall save thee. Pause. p611 Here Guru ji shows the importance of both Bani and Naam: ਆਇਓ ਸੁਨਨ ਪੜਨ ਕਉ ਬਾਣੀ ॥ ਨਾਮੁ ਵਿਸਾਰਿ ਲਗਹਿ ਅਨ ਲਾਲਚਿ ਬਿਰਥਾ ਜਨਮੁ ਪਰਾਣੀ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥ The mortal has come to hear and utter Bani. Forgetting the Name thou attached thyself to other desires. Vain is thy life, O mortal. Pause. p1219 Are there any house manuals that say to read and sing the house manual?
    • All of these are suppositions, bro. Linguists know that, generally, all the social classes of a physical area speak the same language, though some classes may use more advanced vocabulary. I'm talking about the syntax. That is, unless the King is an invader, which Porus was not. When you say Punjabi wasn't very evolved, what do you mean? The syntax must have been roughly the same. As for vocabulary, do you really think Punjabis at the time did nothing more than grunt to express their thoughts? That they had no shades of meaning? Such as hot/cold, red/yellow/blue, angry/sweet/loving/sad, etc? Why must we always have an inferiority complex?
    • I still think about that incident now and then, just haven't heard any developments regarding what happened, just like so many other things that have happened in Panjab!
    • There was a young Singh from abroad who went to Anandpur Sahib Hola and got into a fight with some Punjabis who were playing loud non-religious music. He had bana and a weapon or two. There were more of them than him.  He ended up losing his life. Don't be like that. Not worth it to fight manmukhs. @californiasardar1 ਮੂਰਖੈ ਨਾਲਿ ਨ ਲੁਝੀਐ ॥੧੯॥ Argue not with a fool. p473
