I didn’t participate in ‘the wall.’ I’m staying out of the issue regarding the actual decision because I don’t want to be a meddling foreigner. But I readily involve myself when I see a load of crap labeled as being news or valid opinion.

And I will continue to state this: If the central government of Spain and/or the rest of Spain had ’embraced’ the wonderful cultural aspects of Catalunya, had they endeavored to understand why Catalans banned bullfighting (instead of making fun of them or even trying to overrule the ban), if they demonstrated that they do not prefer fascism to Catalan independence, if they showed one ounce of gratitude to the Catalan economy that actually funds other ‘welfare’ regions of Spain, the vast majority of Catalans would not entertain a referendum about independence.
