    In one European country, they air a program called "The Stupid Things Americans Say or Do", or something like that. Just think about that for a moment, Nishin. Can you imagine any American station airing a program called "The Stupid Things the Spanish Say or Do"? It wouldn't happen in a million years. In fact, our programs about Europe tend to glorify Europe in some way. We get to see Downton Abbey, Upstairs Downstairs, Europe through the Back Door, House Hunters International, etc. Not one single American program shows Europeans in a negative light, as far as I know.

    Europeans deride us for our brush with racism, but they oftentimes think it perfectly acceptable to be anti-American. Can't they see that anti-Americanism is the same as racism? This is because one discriminates against a class of people.--a concept t even belamo can understand.

    Let's examine more closely the topic of racism. It's true that we have an ugly history of racism. But even in my own life (50 years) I have watched the US grow from a country in which black people had to use separate restrooms, to a country that elected a black man not once, but twice--and then, in a moribund economy. We Americans have faced that demon and are making significant strides in slaying it. Can Europe make such a claim?

    Let's take this one step further. Europe has a most vile history of anti-Semitism. Even now, antiSemiitism is not only alive and well, it actually prospers in much of Europe. The most vicious anti-Semitic remarks I have ever heard in my life came from Eastern Europeans. I felt so shocked by some of the remarks I heard that my mouth popped open with surprise.

    Which leads us to the big question: When will a single European country elect a Jewish man for President (or PM, etc.) Will it ever happen? Probably not. Yet we elected a Jewish man not once, but twice, in the biggest city in the States.

    Shall we move on to Spain? belamo's beloved country is such a basket case that the UK, France, and Germany have to support it. Spain enjoys a 26% unemployment rate, and does not enjoy a healthy work ethic. There will come a time when Northern Europe will tire of acting as Spain's nanny, and will let it sink.

    And belamo wants to enlighten us?
    My "beloved country" since when? have you ever read anything about what your equivalent in Spain would call Spain trashing? are you really playing that desperate card of pointing at someone's nationality in the hope of hurting his pride and achieving what you could not achieve with arguments by dealing with the particular person you actually want to address? do you really read anything, not just posted by me, not just anything that you are pleased to read... do you ever actually read anything? Did you REALLY just pick up a couple of terms relating to your beloved citizenship (mark that now I am not talking about the country, the nation actually ), without even caring about what they were really meant for, and then assumed the rest by filling the gaps of your ready-made stupid pretentious trashing piece of Eurotrash?

    Spain, Catalonia... that's the place I come from, but inferring from that an irrational attachment of any sort... what sense would that make in a character like mine? Who could be so stupid as to think that my constantly upsetting everybody, my position of not caring too much to really hate anyone but not appreciating anyone so much as to pet him is in any sort coherent with my "loving" a fairy tale entity like "nation"? Not that I am surprised at your cluelessness, which would make me incoherent with my not appreciation of you in my turn but, man, one can not help being shocked at it like when you are shocked by some humongous-bellied pregnant woman even after having seen so many before...


    You are the one to enlighten anyone? if you had just let it go as you have been intended in the past few posts... ... you would not be losing the last appearance of dignity that some clueless may still believe to credit you for?

    Do you want me to repeat... oh wait, you put me on ignore, which apparently does not make any difference, given your evident ignorance of what I have been pointing at concerning Spain, Europe, the USA and the world in general...

When evidences point to the fact that we are not, we have to stop the exchange and discuss what is the level and what signification of the words employed we meant.

    But we are not emotionless beings and one must contend with the other's emotions. The same sentence uttered at different times to the same person could lead to two very different reactions.
    Nice catch, yes I did mean the opposite : That doesn't mean everyone isn't free to blablabla

    BTW, I also find so weird to have a common JUBbite addressed to as "Seth", as if he were the Son of Godseth of something...

    Ah, I so want to elaborate on all the skim-job that Bess has thrown in his last dump. For example, the anti-Semitism, which is true is the main reason why the rural Jewish population was swept for ever after WWII, while the urban population, mainly in the West, that is, was recovered and increased, and why that hate (mutual to a certain degree, but truly and obviously mostly one-sided) came to be made responsible (mind my non-broken English choice of that particular structure) for the political mess we now have in the Near- and Mid-East. In that connection, and in general connection to how the wrongs imported along with the emigrant population from Europe are diluted to an apparent state of non-existence in those big macho 9 million and a half square kilometers, I wonder how well does Bess know this film or novel.
    Or how the US more than make up for all the "vile histories" that other countries may have in any respect by targeting more certain specifical citizens according to certain particular dogmas of their own reelaboration... and, most importantly, and this is the point in which the "redemption for my apparent "American trashing" should be made obvious for the non-machine readers, hoe, despite all of it, the US can be rationally deemed (right NOW... still...) preferable, superior if you want to anything ever achieved in Europe... despite the fact that the best of the US IS an European seed and, finally, vitally... despite the fact that what makes today the pride of America may be not her future for the centuries to come, precisely because it is too "European". Palin may be nobody, but what she says about reinventing everything from Thanksgiving to the Constitution is something that is being concocted at the very heart of America by what are considered, even by their opponent, genuine Americans.

    All this to waste for Bess... no pity.

    I am not doubting (like I cared, anyway) that it is his C. name, but its use as a JUBbite name. When some breeches over here call me "Carlito" it is so travestied (because NOBODY in Spain says that, they may use "Carlitos" -which is anyway a proper way to refer to a proper Charlie like me- but not that silly Amerispanish form) that it's like they were using just another username.

    When you did not have a receding line of hair. You are either too young or too old to be doddering that way about your hair.
    I never got to watch that movie from beginning to end, although I think I have seen the whole movie I remember Trent in a cute 1980s sci-thriller involving zombies.

    I am not USAmerican and will probably never be able to apprehend the feeling of persecution you believe legitimises the overreactions. By this I mainly mean I do not know if said persecution is indeed factual or perceived, and if the latter how rightly or wrongly so.

    But I think you're being delusional when you don't acknowledge that it's a two way ride when you say something like not one single American program shows Europeans in a negative light, as far as I know... I could easily remind you of Fox/O'Reilly's stance during the Iraq war fiasco...
    There is just as much French-bashing from the US than USAmerican-bashing from France.

    Yet I see a difference in the fact that French (those I know anyway, I can't talk for all of them or other Europeans) will usually say USAmericans this USAmericans that when they really mean USGovernement, USFundiwackoes etc and remain perfectly able to discriminate between individuals and the criticized system as a whole... they will identify the bashing, and still also see the loving.
    (The overreacting) USAmericans tend to be more dythirambic in only seeing the bashing and ignoring the loving...
    This is my perception anyway.

    Your point about anti-Semitism (which indeed still runs rampant in many parts of Europe) has been addressed already but I believe you may find this wiki quite instructing: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Jews_in_politics

    There is just as much French-bashing from the US than USAmerican-bashing from France.
    Yep, in those G-rated, family-oriented macho movies of the Seagal sort, or TV shows in the crime department, they always put something French, like an accent, a bad guy or organization or even just the damn Tour Eiffel in a picture in the background just for France's sake, even when France or the French are actually nowhere in the script, let alone as the bad guys.

    What have you learnt today, you ask?

    I've learnt that life goes on and that death is sucking us to the grave one day at a time.

    I've kissed two men today and I've discovered that I've been deceived by a third.

    If I am the second smartest person here, there must be pretty low standards, whatever they be: I was given (yes, that is how it works, you do not have, you are given) only a 120 or 121 IQ at 13. I totally suck at chess, at sudokus, I get lost at the second phrase of a "mystery" book plot, that is crime novels... I can go on, but surely others can take it from here even with the little they may gather from my posts.

    I asked my Chinese coworker named Wing about her views on Hong Kong. She says that most Hong Kong natives much preferred the British way of life over the new Chinese way, and that if the Brits had stayed, that she herself would go back to Hong Kong.

    I have had this conviction for a long time that the Brits sure do know how to run a government. When they move in, countries prosper. When they move out, sometimes the countries fall apart at the seams. Just look at Zimbabwe, for example.

    I also find it compelling that the Falkland Islands and the Rock of Gibraltar want to stay British.They don't want anything to do with the other countries, thank you very much.

    I wonder what life would be like in the States if we'd stayed loyal to the crown?

    Being a British dependency or whatever of the sort means you can have your way in the world of international business stringpulling without having to care about national pride seizures and international blingy diplomatic wannabeing... while being part of any sort of Spanish nation is the exact contrary. Then you can find several shades between those two extremes, like hovering in a limbo with the French, or...

    The States could not have remained "loyal" by the own nature of the system that "the crown" it/her/whateverself had sown in America: you should rather or better view it from the European side, and consider America as the unique opportunity of development of a political and economical system that would have otherwise stifled by remaining in Europe or, rather, develop as rickety as it has... precisely thanks to some fresh energy from the States. Something that China lacked... and, interestingly, something that would kill America as we know her otday when Europe finally falls and fades away and live the US on their own, alone as the last bearer of Western tradition.

    I'm not sure intelligence is only measured by IQ. Personally I value wisdom over wits. That's why I like to drink at the fountain of likes Hardup, Lex or Seasoned, etc.

    Agreed.

    IQ tests are simply not comprehensive enough to be an accurate measure of intelligence. They may help somewhat to determine a person's mental discipline or attention to detail, but the resulting number is a massive oversimplification of human cognitive ability. It simply doesn't take into account the many different components of intellect, and it is unwise for any of us to judge a person's intelligence by this single (almost arbitrary) number.

    P.S. You keep good company.

    I think the IQ test takes in consideration mainly the Logical-Mathematical Intelligence (Number/Reasoning) with some Spatial Intelligence.
    There are other 7 other types of intelligence that are hardly touched by the IQ tests.
    So really, take the results with a pinch of salt.
