  1. I am not sure how that disputes anything I said. The U.S. was in the war and was providing significant military aid to Britain and the Soviets. Remove the U.S. and the threat of a western front, the Italian front, and the North African campaign and the picture in the east develops very differently.
  2. Very unlikely. Britain was hanging on by a thread in 1941 and there was no chance of them ever staging an invasion of western Europe without aid from the US. Without the threat of a western front and the Italian front the Germans likely could have held off the Soviet advance.
  3. Which is why I wouldn't be making a comment about Australian history, especially a petty one, without making sure I had my facts straight.
  4. I can't imagine different countries are teaching different dates. If someone is going to make a statement like that it's always best to do a quick fact check.
  5. The war lasted almost 6 years and the US entered after around 2 1/3 years and had been providing significant material assistance prior. "Came in at the end" is both petty and wrong.
  6. I am not aware of a SCOTUS decision that severely impacted the rights of HOAs. There is a lot wrong in the rest of your post, but in general the HOA will have a process to enforce their regulations, usually via fines/liens and eventual foreclosure. In AZ the foreclosure process can begin once the debt reaches $1200. A judge would not grounds to get social services involved any more than in any other foreclosure case.
  7. Which is the correct move in their situation. If there is no appeals process taking it to the media is their best shot at forcing the board to review its decision.
  8. The HOA stated in the letter that they "can't" let him stay, which is false. They can, but they are choosing not to do so. Therefore they are coming across as gaping ********.
  9. If the HOA did not have an exception clause in its rules then I would say their hands are tied and they aren't being heartless, as refusing to follow their own rules would put them in a precarious legal situation going forward. However, the board *can* give permission at its discretion, and I can therefore conclude everyone on the board is a gaping *******.
  10. I would continue to invite them just for the stories.
  11. FWIW football and other sports are now implementing a concussion protocol at a young age. Football has moved that direction for some time but last season (at least in our state) basketball also implemented it as well. Too late for many who were injured in the past but a step in the right direction.
  12. The injury data was national so the correct comparison is national participation rates. Hockey participation is dwarfed by other major sports. Team swimming also has low participation rates. To put this in perspective, most small communities in rural areas nationwide will not field a single hockey or swim team, but they usually will field multiple basketball and baseball teams at the youth level. The comparison isn't really even close.
  13. You have to compare injuries related to participation rates. Hockey has a very low participation rate in the US. My guess is that the head injuries/participant is >>> than golf.
