In case you don’t know me, I have a big problem with “authority figures”. Me and my boss get along fine because he doesn’t tell me what to do.
I don’t think I’m better than anyone else, but in exchange, no one else can think they are better than me. I never get autographs. I don’t care about movie stars. They are no better than me.
I have a big problem with the USA and their stance on “illegal immigration”.

You either must believe the statement or must not. Regardless of your heritage or your location of origin.

In the Dallas area, the Addison Oktoberfest lasts 4 days and I think in all 4 days it doesn’t see the patronage of one Munich Oktoberfest tent in one day.
Now, I must kindly ask my younger readers to go find something else to do. Today at Oktoberfest something made me so angry, I thought I might get arrested. It will require descriptive explicative's.
I walked around for about an hour looking for a place to sit. Finally, some guys from the Czech Republic invited me to sit at their table. They were very happy to have an American at their table even though only one of them could speak English. Here is a picture of us…
