I'll admit to being nitpicky in this instance, but with good reason. You type a lot and to be perfectly honest with you I think it's more that you have a problem with being concise than that you try to be precise. So I sometimes skim what you say. If I had seen the word Berber (as opposed to North African) I would have remembered it. You did not say Berber even if that's what you meant and so that's why I said you never said it, because you didn't. I never argued the point that Southern Italians have Arab and African genes mixed in with theirs, in fact I think that's one of the very first points I made in this conversation.
You have to make a cut somewhere. I'm obviously not talking about all of human history here. If we disagree on where to make that cut then maybe that's our fundamental problem.
I don't know about Aryans but there were clearly Germanic ethnicities if not a race.
Wait what? Let's be clear, you think there are LESS mixed race people in the world right now than say 500 years ago?
Again, we seem to just have a fundamental difference in how we want to cut this cake.
Then I would think the Grays would be higher than the Browns and Whites, both of whom I can't see doing much in wartime (maybe the Browns, but not the Whites... then again, who knows >_> )
Has anyone ever noticed a pattern of how Sitters depart or enter the Hall?
It's well beyond the point.
Let's be blunt: food stamps are charity.
It may be a forced charity through taxation but that's another matter altogether.
So when people are on charity others expect them to act with a certain...decorum since they are on someone else's dime.
When you read stories about people on food stamps buying cakes, cigarettes, alcohol, etc it just brings to mind the homeless guy who asks you for $5 to buy a sandwich and then comes out of the store with a 40oz.
People feel taken advantage of. And while we know that's not all people on welfare there are certainly enough doing it to make it a legitimate concern.
