Invariably, yes. It's rather humourous reading through some of the threads on here, I'm quite gobsmacked at the sheer ignorance of many of the imbeciles you see frequenting City Data. I'm just wondering if they get their information via education or if they're just born stupid and lack the ability to receive factual information, so must resort to imagining things that don't exist? Simply calling Europeans perverted, murderous, genocidal and anti-Semitic doesn't constitute an argument, not least when you can't spell correctly!

A stale and dying society. Pretty boring to me. I enjoyed visiting Japan to Europe.

Well.... There are places in Europe that I wouldn't mind seeing. I like history. Having said that... I was born in the State of Ohio in the USA. That is my "motherland." Not Great Britain. Not anywhere in Europe. But I don't have any disdain for it. Oh, and we shouldn't meddle in their affairs as George Washington warned.

true, we should not meddle in their affairs, but also they should stay the hell out of our affairs too.

Europe = America's museum.

just kidding.

I view Europe as a bunch of small historic countries. mostly a very socially liberal place, good food, soccer hooligans, formula one, and great network of public transport.

You said "but now (Europe) it is overrun by socialists and hence ruined.
Can you explain this ?
Answer: No you can't explain it.

Social-capitalist countries in Europe beat Americas butt.


Reality is republicans ruined America, with high national debt from trickle down tax cuts.
(And unlike you, I can explain my above statement)
Yeah Switzerland has a good gig. But don't only blame Republicans (I'm not one BTW), but the Democrats are doing a good job of contributing to wrecking the country. Both parties are effed up!

What is it with libs, if someone isn't impressed with the same things they are then they are an "average FOX watching American Teabagger." How mature.

They also have zero sense of humor and are incapable of getting a "Eurotrash" joke.
People like you are responsible for all the typical American stereotypes.

The joke is on you.
