Back to Geno's... Joey has made no attempt to hide his views on people coming into 'our' country and taking taxpayer dollars away from taxpayers... he has paid for radio time to tell people what he felt was right... it was a totally different circumstance. My point was that I have never been treated with disrespect abroad and I hate to see it in America.
Had Geno's turned people away due to merely a lack of communication I would be disappointed in their not being smarter and more caring but would not be repulsed... but that sign was a slap in the face.
To me depriving people their civil rights does not only go as far as skin color.
Actually, the guy behind the counter wasn't polite about it at all.
Edit: Ok, so I used to work at Blockbuster. Some Quebecois came in once, and either didn't speak English or insisted on speaking French. I couldn't help them with whatever their problem was because I couldn't communicate with them. Did I violate their civil rights?
Down in the basement, I've got a Craftsman lathe. Show it to the children when they misbehave.
