  1. Reeeeeally! They want, protest for, clamor and demand "their" own freedom HERE in OUR Christian land & soil to dress, think, worship and conduct as they deem necessary against the grain and fabric that once was red-white & blue of our land...Even Sikh Muslim NYPD officers are allowed "Turbans" and long beards (did you ever think you'd see the day?) instead of the legendary blue peaked cap! (did we ever accommodate the legendary Irish/Scottish cops and allowed them to use flat caps or Tam o'shanter plaid bonnets? NOT that I can remember)but they are unwilling to kindly reciprocate, permit, forgo and ALLOW us in kind to comport our selves in our customary AMERICAN "OWN WAYS" while in their land???? C'mon! Not one soul sees Aaaaaaany thing WRONG with this??? America is in a deep slumber and in for a true shock when it wakes up and it will not be by a Prince kiss it will be through decapitation Mr. Elder!
