But surely 'israeliteknight' meant to write "CALCULUS!"? As used in ancient "Navigation"?
Anyway, I agree, of course. Let's at least "give Rand Paul that much credit, even if he is dead wrong (and contrary to his father) regarding illegal aliens.".
In particular as he is one of the fewer than 5% American high school students who graduated, as Mr 'israeliteknight' is willing to bet, with "CALCULUS!" behind them.
I personally would never be willing to bet against Mr 'israeliteknight' on any matters concerning "CALCULUS!". Especially as it applies to ancient Navigation and other such esoteric matters.
