    doesn't that make him a Cuban Citizen as well?  American, Canadian and Communist Cuban Citizen, simultaneously?  Wow.  Now what?

      I wonder if the mailman was a sovereign citizen, or something.

      Citizenship  is handled in different ways by different nations, it's not an automatic gimme because your parent is from somewhere.  In fact, our citizenship rules are very unusual for the rest of the world.

      We can't extrapolate from our own prejudices (based on our laws) and assume that other nations work that way - or SHOULD work that way - it gets us into a lot of headaches. And wars among other things.

      And we sail and we sail and we never see land, just the rum in the bottle and a pipe in my hand...

        a bit snarky, not to be taken literally.  It's just a lot of fun to turn it around on the radical right for once.
