    It's funny how these threads end up all over the place! Fuel TV had a reality show about the NS, and I remember an episode where Makua slapped a sponger down for a less than do or die drop in. I can't help but feel he thinks he's a bit entitled to "regulate".

    The Hawaii seceding issue is complicated, they did get screwed, but I agree with previuos threads that the Japanese weren't about to skip over that little gem(look at a map of Japanese occupied territory during the war). Also two of my favorite platoon seargents I served under were Hawaiian(one was Junior Seau's uncle-Gunny Lapada, you da man) so to say all Hawaiians are against the US is not true. Many Hawaiians serve the US armed forces. The thing I don't get are obvious haoles, Filipino's, Japanese ect... that are jumping on the local bandwagon, it's cool to honor a culture that you happen to live around but a white boy living around an Indian rez still makes you a white boy.....

    During my time in France, I found the good and the bad... the ugly and the beautiful. I ate their food, drank their wine, rode their trains, stayed in their guest houses, partied in their clubs, surfed their waves... but I NEVER challenged anyone on their politics. That's something I won't do as a guest in another country. When I choose to go somewhere, I go to learn and appreciate what's there with an open mind, because I know I DON'T KNOW SH!T. I just want to experience it all, and not judge or confront people about what is good or bad, right or wrong. Like my old man used to say, "just watch and learn."

    And I appreciate it when visitors come here and do the same.

    Really?... In my experience French visitors are humble and stoked to be here. They don't speak English well enough to go around being all cocky and looking to argue about politics and what not. I bet you started it by asking if they have electricity in France or if it's true that French women don't shave their mustache or the usual sh!t...

    Well said, I think one of the worst generalizations overall is that of Americans. I do not know how many times in my travels someone has told me "for an American, your ok" now how am I supposed to take that?

    Jesus...what a pathetic story. The writers for "Survivor" would probably cringe at that script!
