This is completely false. Please look up Albert Heijn XL or Carrefour, as those are the typical American "supersize stores" that are located in Holland and France.

When living in Holland, I lived down the street from two small stores that were open 24 hours, so that is false as well.

And I'm not sure what bread for breakfast has to do with anything. Compare the size of the people in France and Holland with American people, might make some think twice about that steak and eggs. I'll take my Dutch broodje kaas.

Well, remember Obama said that he will gut the US military.

Basically, we are open for any country to invade the USA.
All of Obama's terrorist friends will have a killing feast in the USA.

How very true!

Thank you for calling the continent by its proper name rather than using a needless euphemism like The Rest of the World or Other Nations.
