I'm so not going to jump on the bandwagon here with my political views (and as the wife of a US Navy Chief, this is not easy!), HOWEVER... I have a suggestion for this swap (because I'd like to participate).

Maybe instead of listing a country/countries you'd prefer not to recieve items related to, asking what your favorite country/culture is? If that makes sense. For instance, I love things that represent the French and Spanish culture, but am not really that moved by things of (no offense!) Asian cultures... ?? Just a suggestion.

Maybe it will keep the political views in check and no one will get offended that way....

Now that I think about it, I agree with them too. So I didn't mean to offend anybody. That question's out. But Please let this still go on, its a good way to learn about other cultures. I wnat to try and forget about the question. It has been removed.

Hey Munzder, don't feel bad, it's a sensitive issue and I can see why you felt you had to include it (with today's political climate and being PC and all...)
I'd like to join in too!! Will PM you!  Smiley

ok, i took out some of the posts b/c they seemed to be turning our attention from this cool swap to a sticky issue. Munzder was just trying to be PC, don't hold grudges! Just join this swap!  Smiley

OK, ya'll have been paired up. Since there is an uneven number, you will not be sending to the same person sending to you. PM me for your partners info.
