I never said it was not an American accomplishment. Learn to read.

So the answer is you're unable to defend your own statement and because I called you out I'm a troll? Fine continue living in your echo chamber

It isn't an echo chamber, and I was pretty clear about what I meant the first time. It isn't worth discussing it with you, not because this topic isn't worth discussing with someone who thinks like you, but because almost nothing is worth discussing with you. It isn't about the topic, it's about you. But you already knew that. I was a happier person when I didn't read your drivel. I'm going back to those days.

It evidently was not clear. How was the US program to land astronauts on the moon a world accomplishment? If you said ISS I'd give it to you but Mercury, Gemini, Apollon Space Lab, Shuttles no chance.

There are a million other things to talk about, why do we have to talk about politics? Regardless of whether anyone finds any of this inflammatory or not, the whole topic can be avoided. It's just that too many people these days refuse to avoid it - or actually enjoy arguing (I mean, if people didn't enjoy arguing, 3/4 of ESPN's late afternoon programming would die out).

Best shrimp po-boy in New Orleans? Go.

Liuzza's BBQ Shrimp Po Boy
Parkway Fried Shrimp with Debris
Now I'm drooling

Let's keep the focus where it should be, people--our bellies.

Agreed on Parkway with debris, BTW. Just soooo good.

Parkway and Guy's are quality 1A and 1B for fried shrimp. If I'm going no debris, Guy's is probably ahead. Parkway debris breaks the tie.

As someone who walks past Parasol's, their gas cans, and their often broken sewage lines, on a nightly basis, I'll never eat there. And I say that as someone who ate street food in Jamaica and Eastern Europe, laughed at the rat videos in the quarter (and it didn't impact my eating habits at all), and scoffs at health code violations for Camelia Grill

Roast beef yes, shrimp not as much IMHO. And, yes, it's a dump but so what?

I like dumps. When it comes to this type of food, I prefer dumps. My point is that I’ve seen things here that give me pause, and I’m the “it’s a dump, so what?” Guy

I agree. The problem is Politics has a way inserting itself into things that aren't initially political(ESPN reporting, NFL pre-game ceremonies). Too often the result is we just deem those things now too political and refuse to talk about them. Since we don't talk there is no understanding, it gets worse. We don't have to talk, but it's good to know where other people are as far as their principles and desires. That's called peaceful coexistence. Sure it may mean there is some tension, but its when we feel lied to or betrayed that destroys trust and respect so thoroughly. As you know, this also means we must learn the difference between a conversation and an argument.
