Also Edelweiss but the characters are definitely Austrian; perhaps it's a border thing.

Ok just found a news article and in total agreement about the guy's stupidity!

Of all the countries in the world, Singapore (and that includes the rest of Asia and the Middle East) is definitely not one place I'd ever attempt anything so moronic.

Tried clicking on the link but it's been removed.

The other guy that was annoying was Richard Quest he hosted the business traveler and other programs on CNN. I always thought he was too hyper like on drugs or something!! Spot on! :lol: He must be on speed or something. edited to add: Guess what! We weren't far off in our assumption. I googled him...

JD, both posters above have given you valid advice. I just wanted to say as one parent to another, I feel for you. There is nothing more traumatising for a parent than their child suffering. My thoughts are with you and I wish and hope everything works out eventually.

Splitting hairs? So that's what you want to call it when I challenge points you bring up that's your prerogative. And you really need to think about what you're putting out there if you don't like being rebutted. As for the last point, I won't even dignify that with an answer. For what its worth, I ...

The law doesn't prohibit classes that teach about the history of a particular ethnic group, as long as the course is open to all students and doesn't promote ethnic solidarity or resentment. That quote is taken from the article that you linked. From my view, it would make sense to teach all student...

I am concerned that hispanics may be singled out for ID-ing and the room for abuse by law enforcement. The scarcity of resources and the competition for it is rearing its ugly head in this tight economy. I totally agree. It is true that the illegals are taking away jobs from US citizens and not pay...

The Latino situation is a bit tricky as they're the fastest growing demographics and very valuable during elections. They should at least master the English language if they're making USA their home but then if they're Mexican , they probably have a chip on their should with the whole " we're here ...

As for the Arizona thing, frankly, it's not shocking at all. When American Citizens are told they cannot work at Wal-Mart unless they can speak Spanish, in the USA, I think the laws need to be tightened up a whole lot more. The truth is, not too many Americans are rushing in to be employed @ Wal-Ma...

It's a shame Singaporeans don't like sex. If they did, maybe the gahmen wouldn't have to import so much foreign talent. Oh come off it, SMS! Unless you're speaking from personal experience on the home front of course, :mrgreen: Obviously not. I already have my requisite 2 kids and I'm not a Singapo...
