Chewy, this is where we veer, I think of it as one planet. Nobody has the right to claim any part of it! After all that would makes us gods wouldn't it?
My rebuttal has always been from those in the US telling me to mind my own business it doesn’t concern my country has been to point out their countries lack of using that tactic themselves. As well as an allies we have a responsibility to let out friends know when they have a booger hanging out or spinach on their teeth. It’s our way of looking out for them, I’d expect the same from them.
you mentioned "elders" are you first nations if I may ask? Some of those elders are very wise peapod likes the way they speak about the woods and the creatures that live there. Most surprising of all though is some can actually talk to fish and other critters to
Here is a something strange that just happened to me, I think I only took notice of it because of this board. I mentioned to the iranian grocery awhile back that he should put some tables outside his store so people in the neighbourhood could saunter over and have a coffee ( oh his is so bad!) and chit chat. I hope my starbucks never finds out. Well he put some tables out (the coffee still sucks!) Since its my first stop on my walkabout the neighbourhood. Well when I stopped by there awhile ago, sitting outside at a table was the iranian grocery and his brother, the japanese florist from Zen gardens, the filipino who owns the bicycle shop, the gay hairdresser that has his shop next to the iranian grocery. Well there they were all sitting together laughing their heads off about something. It was kind of a strange sight, I must have seen it before I just never noticed. All those cultures and different nationalities having a good time together. Hey! you guys talking about me? had such a good time, I missed starbucks!
This place should start something like a town hall or something, we have an american, a muslim, and plenty of christians no doubt, french people...maybe more...we could ask them questions about their culture, their religion. I think I could round up a buddhist to come to a meeting.
