Thread Name: Do Americans know?
Subject: RE: Do Americans know?
Thanks Mick and Spaw. Sheesh, people are exactly what YOU make 'em.

Years ago when I first started to explore the parts of this fascinating world that I could get to with a guitar and limited budget, folks told me to "put a maple leaf on your guitar case, so you won't be mistaken for an "American"...That's idiotic, (and no..I didn't tell them that.) I just refuse to knowingly buy into ignorance and racism. I'll say it again....learn to identify the haters from a distance (They ALWAYS give themselves away quickly) and go in a different direction. Believe me the Americans don't have a monopoly on silly or pushy tourists. Dimbulbs HAVE no nationality!
