    I'm amazed that people can't rise above the political propaganda and somehow believe that government adversities reflect the actual people and places that these governments represent.

    Governments have become independent entities, or kingdoms if you prefer. They do what the hell they want despite their respective citizens' objections. Governments have become monsters that the people can't kill...because even the notion...and the government will kill them. Citizens are labor and financial resources for governments.

    Governments are like significant others....you can't live without'em and ya can't kill'em.

    My experiences throughout the places I've been in Europe - all have been good.

    Thanks...

    Especially not in Paris with all those hairy armpits.

    You would be surprised. I did most of my traveling while GWB was in office due to some later health complications. But it was amazing how many people who would try to give me **** about being american or how many douche bag Americans I saw running around with a Canadian flag pinned to their backpacks.


    As i said before, people are people, and the majority leave much to be desired. For me, I don't even let politics on the personal level needlessly become an issue. The world would be a pretty boring place if we all had the same ideas

    I have lived in several countries and everyone has had good people and bad people. Being rude to tourists is not unique to any paticular country and trust me you are very likely to get abuse from an American if you are visiting the US.

    What's your answer, and why?
    Absolutely.

    France is a wonderful place. Great food. Great atmosphere. Great country. I would visit the scene river, the louvre, and the eiffel tower. I think it would be amazing.

    As Rodney King said, "can't we all just get along?"

    There's people in Texas who think that anybody from outside of Texas are foreigners. Well, not as much as years past, but some of the old timers are still around. I used to be that way about people who spoiled my beautiful rural community. Who the hell do they think they are moving from Dallas, Houston and San Antonio and mess with my peace and quite? WAIT! I moved here from Dallas.

    Chuck, it's obvious that there's a lot of people whose territorial nature is exacerbated by politics. No matter where ya go...there they are. Shame, too. But the world is really a beautiful place. People who let their prejudices keep them from seeing our world...or even try to prevent people from experiencing theirs...dunno. Sad, really.

    Now while I say it's a beautiful world, it's dangerous, too. I think people's fear keep them from appreciating this small little globe in space. Governments keep our world in chaos and disarray...and in fear. But whatawegonnado?

    No doubt. My point was human ignorance and stupidity isn't exactly a cultural phenomenon

    That's the way both me and my wife are. We go to Florida once or twice a year just to sit on the beach and relax.
