@Mothballsuitor @Chrislennon_GOA @punk_fiction Truther?  I don't recall mentioning anything about 911. As for being a troll, I'm no the one hiding my face, and attempting to insult.  However if you need someone to slag to make up for some inadequacy in your life. Have at it.

@punk_fiction @Chrislennon_GOAI don't know which First Nation you belong to, but in Ontario many of them purposely chose to come here to live under the protection and freedom that flag afforded. I'd be a fool to say that it has been a match made in heaven to say the least. However First Nations people have volunteered to serve under that flag for more than three centuries. I have no business telling you your history, but I encourage you to talk to an elder about it. Some of my ancestors were famine Irish, so I know of what you speak, but "British" isn't an ethnicity, it's an idea.  Even Gandhi believed that. People and societies are the sum total of their experiences, good, bad, and indifferent. I believe existing under the Union flag afforded countries like Canada and Australia the ideas and protection that allowed us to build the open, tolerant, freedom loving and flawed societies we are today. This has been fun. Peace and love.

@punk_fiction Your right. It's only called a Union Jack when it's on a ship. On land it should be referred to as a Union Flag. It's the flag over 100 000 Canadians fought and died under in two world wars.  It's part of our  history and our heritage. We would not be the country we are today without it.  I think we should celebrate that history,. not be ashamed of it.
