It's the same on almost all of the Pacific islands. Where I live, the US gave several million dollars for the local government to guild sea walls all to protect the locals from rising tides due to climate change. There have been no rising tides and not one wall has been build but lots of 54" TV have been bought as well as big-ass SUVs with tinted windows for the government officers and their families to cruise around in. Considering you can drive all the way across the island in 3 minutes at 35 miles an hour you have to really wonder......

Suppose you owned a business, would you serve a white-hooded KKK Grand Wizard who came in for supplies for his next hate rally?

He would be asked to remove his hood upon entering the store.

If he did not remove it, he would be asked to leave. At which point he is trespassing if he stays.

If he did remove his hood then you'd have a funny story to tell all your friends about who the Grand Wizard is. Want to see it on CCTV?

If a Muslim woman enters your business, will you require her to remove her burqa or hijab?

I wonder why so many people wear Che t-shirts..........have they ever read any of Che's prose?

"The situation was uncomfortable for the people and for Eutimio so I ended the problem giving him a shot with a .32 pistol in the right side of the brain, with exit orifice in the right temporal." - Che Guevara

According to the latest official figures, 43% of all statistics are totally worthless.
