    I think it's bad that in Scotland someone can't wear an England scarf for fear of personal safety. Here is a clip:-

    You seem to spend an awful lot of time specifically searching for things to get offended by, based on how often you post this sort of topic.

    You might find yourself in a much happier state of mind if you, you know, completely stop doing that. Searching for things to get irritated by doesnt do you or anyone else any good. Particularly when what you're finding is on the freaking internet and in a great many cases may not even be true.

    Just a thought.

    Team over-attachment can be strong and sometimes dangerous anywhere. One does not simply walk into Philly wearing a Steelers Jersey.

    I don’t have a clue to what was said or what that was about? Was that even english? All seemed like gibberish, didn’t understand a word.

    Asperger people sure can be blunt with each other, can say I’ve noticed that the short time I’ve been here. I’m okay with it, just is different to me.

    Since when are the Scottish tolerant of anything English? LOL

    My grandmother's family are all Scottish, and that heritage is something you're immersed in from a very young age. I remember getting lectured about great battles our clan won against the English, and how we are Scottish, not English.

    It's from a parody tv show.

    However, I used to live across the street from the soccer stadium where the Portland Timbers play, and I will tell you that Timbers fans are downright violent sometimes if the other team wins.

    No, it's not the Summer of Love. It is a war zone. It's very frightening here.

    Before the riots, it was very clean, beautiful, and eclectic here. Virtually no crime at all. I lived downtown with a small child, and we used to go out at 10 or 11 at night and just stroll the streets, people watching, and enjoying the night air. Bad political management changed that. A lot of the rioters are from other cities, bussed in. And there's an incredible meth problem now too. There's always been a bit of meth and heroin in the NW, but now it's crazy. And homeless camps everywhere. Even one about 20 feet from my back porch.

    Oh My! I had no idea! I’m so sorry you have to deal with that, it’s terrible?! I thought all that mess was over, but did see where people were living on the streets.

    I see it but don’t get living on the streets here in Houston because of the heat, if I were homeless then I could see going where the weather was nicer but gosh people camping 20 feet near your back yard? Don’t they have a patch of woods for folks to live in, this is what happened in NC when I was a kid in the 70’s?

    The saddest part of that, nobody is learning from it. These are the same policies that many are wanting everywhere.

    ...yep, darn glad we are bugging out this summer and going dark. It’s time.
