If he wanted me to take more direct action in some way, I couldn't help him with that.
    So you missed an opportunity to defend America and agreed with him, oh how very cosmopolitan of you !

    Let me see here...... How much do I care what the rest of the other countries on this planet think?

    I could care less what they want.

    I think what they really want, is for US to turn into the same kind of shit holes they live in.

    Our global hegemony has a pretty determined shelf-life.

    And who determined the shelf life?

    1. It was not a question of defending America, it was a question of defending George Bush, which I am not going to go out of my way to do no matter what country I am in.
    2. In no way did I indicate I agreed with him.
    3. I know how to spell "opportunity".

    If its so great, why aren't more Americans, that feel disaffected trying to migrate to all those social utopias?

    I think its because they are social hell holes, but they do have nice brochures.

    Compared to here, yeah. Have you ever been?
    I feel that once a black fella has referred to white foks as "honky paleface devil white-trash cracker redneck Caspers," he's abdicated the right to get upset about the "N" word. But that's just me. -- Jim Goad

    You're way too stupid to be reasoned with, but I'll bite. I'm pretty sure you'd enjoy America more than Europe, but everyone isn't like you. Hold on -- I know your first inclination is to bomb those people until they are more like you -- but calm down. Its OK for people to be different than you and want different things, it doesn't make them "wrong", "stupid" or anything else.
