Jon, you're like a mighty oak... Takes more than one stroke to drive in a nail, but once it's in, it stays in!

Maybe just me, but I would rather deal with a smart ass than a dumb ass...

Sorry...but that's a silly statement. What does an American look like? I've met Mexicans that are just as white and English looking as some of the English students here at school. The world is a very diverse place, now.

The post was suppose to be humorous. Sarcasm and wit does does not always translate correctly in words alone. I know the world is diverse. I work for the Department of Defense for over twenty years. I live in a country bordered by nine other countries. Can you name them without Google? Immigration is very heavy in Germany. Prior to this I moved a lot as a military brat.

Simply someone talking out their tailpipe as usual.

My unit had no standards on face paint. The only thing, a friend of mine shaved his head and painted a Mohawk on it. Our first sergeant jokingly told him "you'd better fade that ****." (Refers to Marine Corps haircut regulations)

I did skulls and joker type smilies. Then I saw actual combat and stopped worrying about that kinda crap. It's camouflage, not makeup.
