How to answer the phone
I have one question to ask:

If an immigrant leaves their own country to come to another and expects that new country to adopt their culture then why did they leave their culture in the first place to come to another culture?

It's also funny how some people must instantly label everything creating a separatism between us all, how are we ever going to stand united in the world as we are if we must always hide behind our addiction to emotion and think of us all as separate entities.

Endorsing Donkey's question. Absolutely - if people long to live under sharia law, for example, it is very easy to find and plenty of room for them in a wide choice of countries. Don't compromise my culture. sharia - Thanks but no thanks. Do we get a choice in our own land? At least let me grumble. grumble. grumble. signs in foreign languages - grumble.grumble. Under the carpet with everything English - not ethnic enough - grumble f****** grumble.

Just for arguments sake; I beg to differ. It were the Dutch who founded New Amsterdam, which became New York. So I reckon you all should learn your native tongue of Dutch... Hup, op de knieen voor jullie koningrijk Nederland!

If you care for a translation, just ask me

Thanks for that Ted, and to think I was just about to ask you if narcotics were still freely available in Amsterdam... thanks for clearing it up before I even asked.

New Amsterdam founding. Yes. I am also partly Dutch, but do not speak the language of my Grandmother and although i know of this early situation, i would be pleased if you guys could the confirm the Factual history. Was it indeed the Dutch Sephardis who were the driving force, with great economic success?

DOWN Bulldogg - nothing whatsoever to do with your last post!

Americans can not say tomahto properly despite 400 years to practice, and the New Zealanders have sex after five. That does not leave too many posters on this thread left with credibility on speaking true blue fair dinkum real okka English.

As to being republican, here are Wayne's own words:

He certainly didn't make any attempt to volunteer at a time most people his age or older including Stewert, Gable, Reagan Powers and my Grandfather did. The most damning thing was in 1944 he had is lawyers change his status from 1-A to 2-A (Family deferrment). So I think the overall point Gator makes is valid. The fact he avoided service is one thing, but the fact he did so many war pictures afterwords is just the height of hypocracy.

Word I got was Marion Robert Morrison (aka John Wayne) was, during the Second World War, 1-A (draft eligible), 2-A (deferred for reasons national interest), and 3-A (family deferment), although not in that order.

That he had his Lawyers argue for a change from 1-A to 2-A makes Marion Robert Morrison (aka John Wayne) a Draft Dodger.... and in my book a Coward.
He (Marion Robert Morrison) is many times looked at by Republicans and their ilk as some sort of a "hero".... but many Republicans and their ilk are funny like that.

Marion Robert Morrison (aka John Wayne) seemed to think he was better than your Grandfather (and mine) along with every other Service Member in Uniform during the Second World War..... which in my own opinion was merely the Republican in him coming out.
