    And you know what?
    We might be arrogant, but we are right.
    The majority of the american voters just reelected a president that is responsible for lying about WMDs and the Saddam-9/11-connection, who is responsible for Abu Ghraib and that the inmates in Guantanamo don´t have lawyers... etc.pp.

    This makes you stupid. Period.

    Your blatant antiamericanism makes you look only at the negative facets of bush policies.

    Look at the positive facets... for example... uuh... aahh... ehm... now I can't recall anyone but you know what I mean.

    Anyway the election was about domestic issues and values.
    So all those bad things you talk about are irrelevant even if they were true.

    Yeah, I'm pretty sure Bush is about to make a claim to the Sudentland any day now.

    "Fire up the engines, boys, we're heading for Poland!"

    Of course they think we are stupid, and we are. We buy their overpriced cars, their overprice wine, their overprice perfumes. We even buy their overpriced clothes and accessories because they have fashionable European names in their labels.

    We can show them we are not stupid by not buying their crap.

    But hell, I like expensive French Champagne and my expensive German car rides so smooth.

    Pssst... The "oops" was to indicate to the "smarter than us" euros that it was they who elected Hitler...

    Of COURSE not.

    Hitler wasn't a coke addict.

    (Not likely to get sick of this sort of joke any time in the next four years, either)

    And I was just adding to the sarcastic tone of the joke by implying that the US had a claim to a part of Poland.

    I'm wit' ya, I swear I am.

    This latest crop of Europeans to invade the boards - the little dutch girl and her ilk - are they representative of europeans in general? Because if so, I'm scratching the EU off of my list of emigration possibilities.

    Your little Dutch friend is just representative of......herself. ;)
    But why emigrate, when you could be positive and be active in pursuing your own political beliefs and convincing those of your own country?

    I'm not seriously considering emigrating, at least not permanently. It would be interesting to live for a while in a different country - even if it is Canada. Actually, Canada surprised me with the extent to which it is a foreign country. I didn't expect to feel like I wasn't in the US anymore but I did.

    Anyway, as for being politically active, I'm just not the type. I couldn't sell ice water in the desert.

    At least you are honest. I can't be really politically active either. Being an ex-pat makes it difficult to get involved in the first place. Then there is the inertia to go with that.
    Maybe you could import a little Dutch girl to sound off? Then again, she would just polarise politics, sweeping any liberal elements aside.

    What we need in the US is to listen to and learn from each other. Two-way communication. TLDG is only interested in preaching, not listening. Look how many people she pissed by asking them to do something they were going to do anyway. Her kind we don't need.

    As a current Ex-Pat I'm of two minds. I am fully against Bush's ideals and plans and am as ticked off as the next guy at the mistakes Bush has made.

    OTOH, I am getting a bit sick of having to hear from snooty Euros how fvcking terrible my country is, or how stupid we Americans must be, or seeing them fvcking protesting the war in Iraq, and on and on and on and on.

    I am allowed to harbor those feelings, but for some stupid reason I get somewhat pi$$ed when I experience Euros expressing their displeasure with all things American. I see them here in Oslo marching around protesting against Bush, or the war, or whatever the flavor of that day is, and I don't know why but I begin to feel a hot fire inside myself. It seems stupid, but I can't help it.

    It's like I feel that these Norwegians marching around holding their cute banners somehow have zippo to say about the war in Iraq, or Bush's policies, and that it is my country and it is my problem, they should give it up. It is wrong to feel that way, I think.

    Speedy is sh!tty when it comes to protesting Euros. :(

    I can quit anytime I want.

    EDIT - I think at some point we should make a distinction between "emigrating" and "fleeing." F-L-E-A, flee, in the words of Father of the Year Woody Allen.

    And you're still German. You people have a good 8990143 years before you can criticize the actions of any other country on earth.

    Sorry to disapoint you and ruin your joke, but Hitler was a coke head, along with meth addict and opiate junky. Hell, he even roofed himself.
