Thread Name: american politics is a joke
Subject: RE: american politics is a joke
Would any of the U.S. jingoes thumping on Fionn care to let on which foreign countries they have vistied, how many times and for how long? Or what foreign news broadcasts they regularly listen to (no cost involved) or what foreign papers they regularly read (quite inexpensive)? Or give substantive reasons why they blindly believe this sophomoric 'best country in the world' shite? It should be obvious to anyone familiar with content of U.S. news programmmes/newspapers that the average European is vastly better informed about world affairs that his American counterpart. There are certainly no real discernable cultural differences between the vast majority of geographic areas in the U.S.
