BB, your comment inadvertently speaks for itself; starting with basic disrespect as you full well know that I am a Caribbean person of tricontinental ancestry.
Your ego precedes you. I have no idea what your ancestry is. And, frankly, I don’t care.
Notice, here, that Commonwealth armed forces included many volunteers from colonies in both world wars, literally from India to the West Indies.
And they also included conscripted “volunteers”. But don’t underestimate the promise of three squares a day to many of these indigenous peoples. There is a reason why many of the “volunteers” came from the poorest of society.
I side with firemen who went into the Towers even as civilians were being shepherded out.
As do I. They, and all the other first responders deserve our utmost respect.
But I also side with the small population of Gander Newfoundland who took thousands of American citizens into their houses, without question or demands, because their planes were forced to land in this WWII transit point.
Sorry, but when anyone starts a sentence with “your problem is”, I know they have nothing of value to listen to. I will but my moral values (atheist though they may be) up against yours any day, and twice on Tuesday. The difference between you and I is that I don’t pre-judge based on religion or world view. I accept that homosexuals are entitled to the benefits that I, as a heterosexual, have. I accept that I, as a man, can’t dictate what a woman does with her body. I accept that a Jew or Muslim is entitled to worship as they see fit as long as they don’t break any laws (Christians, as well). I accept that people (and children) are entitled to be given accurate information. I accept that my sexual mores should not be imposed on others, as long as those involved are of consenting age. I accept that people shouldn’t be allowed to use “freedom of religion” to discriminate against others.
tricontinental? He's the son of geographical land forms or even perhaps tectonic plates? That would make him transcontinental. Do they have trans bath rooms on Montserrat?
