    Mark Weber is not an author. He has never written one book in his life.

    John, the definition of “author” is not restricted exclusively to “one who writes books.” Mark Weber writes articles and speeches as part of his living. He is therefore an author and is described so just as legitimately as anyone who has written a book.

    definition of “author”

    The substance and the heritage of Christians be they Oriental, Orthodox, Catholic, Protestant, Mormons and half Christian. I take it that sums up those two terms? Makes me wonder how atheists and other doubters fit in? Also, brings to mine what Doc Sunic mentions in one of his recent articles how in the ramparts of Europe religion belief is just a manifestation of their ethnic heritage. Call the state worshippers what they are Mr. Weber scumbags, one-worlders and shit eaters.

    I blame the baby boomers it will be better when generation Y takes over that was tongue-in-cheek. I doubt Greece, Serbia, or Romania will ever have a non-Greek Orthodox super majorities.

    Let the Israeli build there walls with out a cent from the US defense department. Martin ?Kreield? I didn’t get his last name Doc Sunic.
    France has a nuclear arsenal to rival the Israeli threat. “The Sampson Option” Seymour Hersh! Common ground with the left it’s great to find when possible.

    That was a lie, it’s a waste of time to find common ground with the likes of a rat like Hersh.

    Your distinction between legalism and a nation is intriguing

    Steve,

    I respectfully disagree and think it is important enough to say so.

    Someone who writes a poem or a computer program can certainly be called the author of it, but they are still not given the title of “Author” in the general use of that term. When someone is described as an Author, we take it to mean they have written at least one book. Poets whose poems are published in books are not even called Authors; certainly people who write magazine articles and speeches are not.

    These two gentlemen like to emphasize their scholarship, so I think they can be held to a high standard in the words they use.

    Is that you three’s biggest concern?

  9. Carolyn on May 15th, 2010 8:25 pm

    A further thought:
    It occurs to me that “writer” is the proper descriptive term. All authors are writers, but not all writers are authors. Mark Weber is a writer. And a very good one, too. And a good thinker. Too bad he’s not an author … that might be a question he could be asked: Why aren’t you an author?

  10. Steve(Codex) on May 15th, 2010 9:04 pm

    Carolyn,

    I realize that a common understanding of the title “author” usually denotes one who writes books. However, I think that if, as I stated above, one’s writings are a substantial part of the way one makes a living, then it is okay to regard that person as an author.

    My comment above was intended to counter the across-the-board rejection of the use of the label “author” as applied to someone who writes for a living, though that person has not published a book. It may not be a common use of the term, but it is still acceptable.

    Spike,

    Let the Israeli build there walls with out a cent from the US defense department. Martin ?Kreield? I didn’t get his last name Doc Sunic.

    It’s Martin Creveld and is written in the last show discussion bullet point at the top of this page.

    Thanks Steve, I missed that.

  13. Steve(Codex) on May 16th, 2010 8:11 pm

    No sweat, mate.

    Constitutional patriotism?

    That’s what Rush Limbaugh, Alex Jones, and many other “right-wing” patriotards are pushing right now.

    In America, we seem to have an endless supply of morons who will willingly accept this egalitarian garbage.

    No fire bombing, ethnic cleansing, or show trials needed.
