She’s right, but how do you undo 100 years of government education? I was talking to two Danish students who are traveling the world for nine months. They raved about their “free” education to date and did so in a sort of mocking way what with me being just an American and all. Then they told me how they got their money for the trip.
You see, Denmark has very high taxes (45% per them) and you cannot make any money there (that’s a near quote). So they worked in Finland which has a 25% tax rate and tons of money. Ironic, eh?
Irony isn’t the word.
It is pure selfishness, sloth and evil, that is the attitudes these Danes carry.
It is disgusting, even more so since they seem all too aware and happy to slip through the cracks.
No better than a mobster bragging about his price fix on cheese.
And these people wonder why we are rude to them in NYC when they ask something. LOL. I have no need for anything from Euro-trash and their esoteric moronic ideals on lifestyle and economy, which have bee heartily discredited and refuted many times by many scholars for over 100 years.
I wish I was in on your conversation. I have traveled the world a lot and have a unique way about me of turning that Euro viewpoint right on its head to their faces in short order. The bumbling and self doubt that immediately arises in the face of my American confidence and simplistic assertion of facts and observations is one of the most pleasurable and priceless experiences an American can experience when dealing with less mentally capable Xenos’.
At the very least it sure makes them feel immediately inferior, which as Martha would say “Is a very good thing.”
