You know - it's been an awfully long time since someone let loose and admitted they really just don't like a large group of people. I kind of enjoy when people with solid prejudices (that's not a negative) and bigoted feelings (probably is negative) come out and say so. I don't feel differently about you because you think some people are awful.

And don't say the French. Nobody likes the French.

I happen to love the French. I think they're way better than the rest of the Euro trash.

I don't like the handicapped. They should try harder.

I like the French. In fact, I have to find a beret and striped shirt for my cruiser ride tonight, which has the theme Tour de France.

So naturally I'm going as an onion seller. Any ideas where I can pick up a striped black and white shirt?

hehe Only when i want to vent. The truth is people here in Erie are pretty progressive. There were way more Obama bumper stickers on cars than John McCain ones. I see a lot of white couples with adopted black and asian babys.

Although earlier this year i saw a lady with a massive window sticker on her car that read "The government is taking away our freedom". Very humbly, i walked over to her and asked what it meant, i knew this was gonna be good ! She said something along the lines of "Well ... the government it taking our money to fund all sorts of new programs"

I still think America is backwards in many ways socially when compared to England.

I don't like Canadians with their "aboot" this and "eh" that. Oh, then there is Alabama, Tennessee, Kentucky, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, North Carolina, South Carolina and Florida. All of them are horrific. Then there's the Scots, the Welsh, the Irish, Cockneys, Scousers, Mancs, Geordies and the Cornish. God-awful every single one of them. Not forgetting the French (obviously), the Italians, the Belgians, the Norweigians, the Swedish, the Danish, the Polish and the Hungarians. All of them are pointless. Oh yeah, people who don't indicate, people who drive slow in the fast lane, people who pull out in front of me, people who don't turn their lights on when it rains, people who blind me with their full beams, truckers, motorcyclists, BMW drivers, Audi drivers, Volvo drivers, Toyota drivers and Nissan drivers. All of them should be shot. Let's not forget people who don't know the difference between "there, their and they're", or the difference between "here here" and "hear hear", those that think "off of" is good English, anyone that utters "winningest", and especially anyone that uses text speak when not writing a text message. Morons, every single one of them. And last but not least, anyone that has the letter 'K' in their name. There's something not right about that.
