Why America is Superior to Europe

When the New World was discovered, any European with a sense of adventure and a willingness to better himself went to America. That was the first case of Brain Drain. The ones who stayed home were the inbred Aristocracy, and the ones too stupid to survive on their own.The majority of criminals and mental misfits were shipped to Australia, along with the prostitutes to provide a new whore house for British sailors to stop for R&R.The Europeans who were left behind, squabbled and fought regional wars over religion and who would dominate who, until WWI when America had to go over and stop them from annihilating themselves and restore a sense of civility and order. An unfortunate consequence of this action was that American GI's left a lot of bastard children running around . It didn't take long for England and France to try and enslave t…

THE UGLY AMERICAN

This is a research project.  The "ugly American".  I spent 13 plus years in the U S Navy as a hospital corpsman.  (1961 to 1974) When overseas I noticed it seemed fewer than 10% ever left the base to mingle anywhere except the bars that catered to the U S servicemen.

The American Dream

To me, the American Dream and Freedom go hand-in-hand. There's no one single definition of exactly what Freedom is, nor the American Dream. Over the course of our history, our freedoms have expanded; and so therefore the American Dream has also changed and expanded. And if you want to define the Ame…
