    Sounds like a nightmare. Poor Europe. I hope that "Education" never spreads to MY neighbourhood (shudder).

    Yes sir. How dare they try to make better for their people. That's some serious evil there. I don't now why anyone gives Spook the time of day. He just floats stuff to annoy people and has no real interest in the subject.
    Thanks from Madeline and Dangermouse

    The right thinks people exist to serve government.

    The left thinks government exists to serve the people.

    O, absolutely! For a whole raft of reasons, but most of all, as to how to spend the dough. I actually thought the Great Society programs were fabulous when I was a young person. Seemed so obvious!

    We MUST have our Loyal Opposition, to restrain us, especially when we move forward with universal health care or guaranteed minimum income.

    And I don't think it's a choice. My very charming, kind-hearted brother and daughter are NOWHERE near as "leftist" as I am, and would NEVER scream at cops in the streets, during a BLM protest. My kid was still thrilled to get a new stuffed animal as a gift in her 30's. My brother is a devote Catholic.

    If my parents could "raise" such different people, and I couldn't raise a radical, I think it's a personality characteristic, dictated by DNA, like shyness or fearlessness.

    Do you agree?

    No one says it can never happen here, but get a grip, the odds of getting killed
    by a terrorist in the USA is lower than getting struck by lightning.

    Rural Americans? No terrorist wants to kill you, but you should be on alert
    .....to your armed family and friends.

    I just can't believe the question

    "Beyoncé - there have been a dozen recent terrorist attacks in your home country, including a church massacres where the attacker simply wanted to kill as many black people as possible, and the big one in your hometown New York where you live. School shootings are rampant and your child's school probably has an armed security force and universities have their own police. Bevause of all the US church shootings, some churches are now creating church police forces.

    And now there's been a killing in Manchester.

    So are you scared to leave the safety and peace here in America to go to dangerous Europe"?

    What the ever loving fuck?

    This country is so selfish. We actually think the rest of the planet owes us to die for us so as to keep the terrorists busy and America safer.

    Then Israel steps up and does so, with grace, and all most Americans can do is bitch some more.

    It reminds me of Irish Americans, funding the IRA without a second thought because they only killed the British.

    Amirite, @Dangermouse, @Leo2?

    It's as if we think outside the U.S., humans are more like cartoon characters than real people.
