America was never the best at Education or Health Care but making money was the one and only thing that America was always the best at doing. And that was the dream we offered the rest of the world. People came here to pursue that. Now that that whole myth has been exposed as a fraud we aren't and haven't been for some time the envy of the rest of the world many would like to believe we are.

Speaking of Butch, I was hoping for another moogis show by now.

Wow. What a boatload of sh*t. Unemployment in Europe is way higher than ours, unemployment in Spain is 18%, .and Sarkozy is actually trying to get some conservative things done like getting French workers off their ass and working more than 35 hours a week, and they are about to raise the retirement pension age from way too low 60 years old to 67 because they can't afford the welfare state drain. (http://www.guardian.co.uk/business/feedarticle/8559389) And, people from all over the world still come to American universities and while access to health care maybe easier over there, the actually health care itself in America is still the top of the line. Not that I don't underestimate the need for those on the Left like yourself who relish in trying to point out Europe's faux superiority, as it is a normal inclination to put down your own country, trying to show solidarirty with the pathetic European religion known as cynicism. Hows that working for you?

quote:
http://www.reuters.com/article/marketsNews/idUSLG24931320090617

.............The new president (Sarkozy) made no secret of his view that France had stagnated for two decades under his predecessors, Jacques Chirac and Francois Mitterrand, with over-rigid labour laws, a punitive tax system, mediocre universities and excessive bureaucracy.

But after an early burst of legislation to reward overtime, cap taxes on high earners, shrink the civil service and get around France's 35-hour work week, the financial crisis prompted him to halt or dilute measures to overhaul schools, universities and hospitals.




Hilarious. Don't let the door hit you in the ass and good luck over there.

Well, that depends on what is wrong with you, actually.

And I for one appreciate that Statue of Liberty every morning on the subway to work.



I love the Statue of Liberty, a gift from France that is what it is- a huge compliment to this country. We are still the force foe liberty and freedom in this world, and our revolution was way more successful than the later French Revolution that turnbed south quickly and became an absolute bloodbath.

Now, in Europe, you're ok if you are the right color, religion and ethnic group. Otherwise you get things like the riots in France and the still recurring problems of job discrimination against Mulsims and people of color, , the recent racist and violent attacks on Romanian immigrants in Ireland - http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/uk/article6521774.ece,

http://online.wsj.com/article/SB124295673643645875.html


...........................Life can be better than in France. Surveys show that in France, applicants for a job have around a third the chance of getting a reply if their name sounds Arab or African as they do with a more traditional French name.

But no one knows the exact extent of inequality: The French Republic's doctrine that everyone is equal has so far ruled out the collection of statistics on race and religion. As a result, unlike in the U.S., there are no detailed data on how many French people are black, Arab or Asian -- and how they fare in education and work.

Opponents say that such an ethnic census would divide society by validating the existence of groups based on race and religion.

President Nicolas Sarkozy, acknowledging the problem, said before his 2007 election that he wanted better ways to measure discrimination, and in December he appointed a commissioner for diversity. Algerian-born Yazid Sabeg recently published a report in which he recommended that people be allowed to identify -- but not in a mandatory way -- which ethnic group they belong to on official documents.

"We need to measure the negative situation that is the result of different appearances," Mr. Sabeg said in a recent interview in his office on Paris's Left Bank. "It's very important for France to get out of its fantasy that there is no discrimination."




The rise of racism in Europe,

quote:
http://www.brusselsjournal.com/node/3971

Jewish groups in Europe and the United States have reacted with alarm to the gains made by far-right political parties in the recent elections for European Parliament. Right-wing and nationalist parties posted significant victories in Austria, Britain, Denmark, Hungary, Romania and the Netherlands in four days of voting that ended on June 7.

The Paris-based European Jewish Congress (EJC), an umbrella organization for Jewish communities in Europe, said: “As we assess the results of this week’s elections, one disturbing trend has already crystallized; the gains made by extreme-right groups is a Europe-wide phenomenon. The success of the far-right and nationalistic parties that won seats in the elections on the basis of racist, anti-Semitic and xenophobic platforms points to a clear erosion of tolerance and a clarion call to European officials to immediately engage in intercultural dialogue. The success of such rabid groups as The Freedom Party in the Netherlands, the Freedom Party in Austria (FPO), the Danish People’s Party, the British National Party, and Jobbik in Hungary, among others, will sadly only serve to embolden those who espouse the dangerous concepts of extreme nationalism, racism, anti-Semitism and xenophobia.”

The New York-based Anti-Defamation League (ADL) said it was “deeply distressing that the blatantly anti-Semitic parties received so many votes,” and called on European leaders to “ensure that anti-Semitism, racism and bigotry never again gain a foothold in Europe…. It is imperative that European leaders do not remain silent, but speak out and reject the hateful and bigoted worldview of parties of the far-right and their supporters.”

The Geneva-based World Jewish Congress (WJC) said: “Far-right parties and extremists have made gains across Europe amid protest votes and low turnout for the European Parliament (EP) elections. The elections were held in all 27 EU member states from Thursday to Sunday last week. Support for centre-Left parties and governments collapsed across the EU as fringe parties, picked up protest votes.”

Help us win our freedom from England for starters.

The French gave us financial and military support during the revolutionary war. Without them we'd still be a part of the UK. But I do believe we repaid the debt with change to spare in WWII

WWI as well.


Let us not leave out the protection we afforded them during the Cold War and the fact that we, for absolutely no reason, permitted them a permanent seat on the UN security council despite the fact they had nothing to do with us winning WWII and actually hindered us.
