    Oh and your country, where every politician is sponsored by (insert big corporation here) is a bastion of corruption free politics.



    Like say... the war in Iraq...?
    Yep, Europe has some fine Phillies, and a more relaxed attitude, but that doesn't mean they're not lazy... they are. Their system breeds it.

    As one German lady told me about 20-years ago, "Germans are afraid to work too hard". I know it first hand. The East Euros are a breed apart due to their Commi training, but western Euers pale compared to the US when it comes to productivity.

    They get gobs of time off, hell the EU shuts down for a month in the summer... there is no way they can compete. It's why the Swedish study Timbro found the best EU countries would be... at the bottom 5 of US States for standard of living.

    Now Bozo wants to do to the US what the EU has done to itself.

    Notice the woman in front of the fat sow? Why not a picture of her thong? Or does that not suit the BS of your photo?

    Europeans are indeed lazy people. This is why they only take to the streets to when it comes to insisting they get more wages while working for less. European social programs ensure a high continued unemployment rate.

    Um...but Europeans allow thousands and thousands to die of heat, don't they? Over 30,000 of the elderly in one summer alone a few years back, wasn't it? Regardless, European health care is afforded because big brother can afford to take up the international slack. Licking internal World War II wounds throughout a Cold War has afforded them that. But these are the social programs I talk about when it comes to the general feeling that Europeans don't have to earn anything.

    And Canada? With America acting as the shield for all of this hemisphere, what can't they afford to selfishly do?

    I believe he was talking about decades of bad decisions that encourage lazyness and a general attitude that the state owes them for living. Hell, a couple decisions involved the entire world and completely wrecked Europe didn't it? Using temporary Iraq as some sort of overburdening is exaggerated. America always bounces.

    French interests have always come at the expense of the rest of the continent. I thought there was a reason and purpose behind this EU thing. It's a good idea until one decides that going it alone is better? This is like believing in Democracy, but refusing to play if your guy doesn't get elected.

    I guess the French just want their ball back.

    9 Finland 51,062
    10 Austria 49,900

    And don't tell me "The government gives them that cause they're lazy"

    I knew alot of people in Welfare in England and it ain't all that, you think people just sit around and get everything given to them in a socialist utopia? cause that is a load of crap, HAVING to live on welfare is a hard life that believe me, no one strives for.

    Besides, the EU average doesn't come close to the US.
