I guess I must have completely forgotten about the massive tourism industry in Netherlands, silly me…Oh wait http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/World_Tourism_rankings
Netherlands isn’t on the list, and whats this! America is second! If you really believe that tourism is linked with alcohol consumption then your only helping strengthen my argument so thank you. I don’t even see why the amount of alcohol a country consumes is somehow a negative indication of the country, but I was humoring you in the first place anyway. Secondly, fast food in other countries is the result of profitable American companies who have thrived in our free market society. Not a pure free market (I’ll make this distinction because I’m sure in ur arsenal of stereotypical America bashing comebacks, you will call me out on it). They seem to be pretty succesful in countries around the world so it seems as though other countries enjoy fast food as much as Americans do. Well our country was founded by a revolution in which we took over control of our own nation by repelling the British. The Netherlands was similarly founded by gaining independence from Spain during the 80 Years War. Yes, America has been involved in many wars over the years, but so has most of Europe and Asia. Please do point out the time in history when America wiped out close to 6 million Jews, or commited massive genocide of millions of people killed under communist regime, or raped and murdered 20-80,000 women in Nanking, or killed millions of muslims, sikhs, and hindus near the partition of India, or killed 800,000 people in Rwanda, and I can go on but I hope you get my point. Other countries have killed, raped, and enslaved more people than America ever has so get your damn facts straight before you spew the same bullshit that everyone else says. America may have not always had the best motivations in going to war (such as oil, money, and territories) but without our country stepping in in WW2, your country would still be run by Nazis right now, so you’re welcome. Our government isn’t perfect, but it sure ain’t as fucked up as you might like to believe. Our citizens own guns, but we have the power to change government through free election and popular opinion. We don’t go ape shit and start a violent revolution on a whim for no god damn good reason. Go take a look at all the modern inventions and conveniences that were invented in America. We wouldn’t even be having this conversation without the development of personal computers in America. I have no problem with your country. I personally would love to travel and visit the Netherlands. I don’t think America is better than any other country in the world. I do believe though that we are among the greatest nations in the world. I don’t know why you are so bitter toward America, and I would even venture to guess that you’ve never even been to America. So maybe you should think twice before you spew hateful BS.
