America's glorified. All the young misled individuals go to the States, sweat, put their noses to the grindstone yet are met with an obscenely tough immigration program. It's not true that everybody can succeed. It's not true that everybody has equal-rights. People have a way of carrying their prejudices with them into executive offices, etc. There's really no such thing as total equal rights. It's a fact that a white person would get a job over an equally-qualified black/Asian person. It's a proven fact that tall people earn more than short people. Likewise with fat and thin people. This is true in most places.

Yep, I'll have to lose a few puppy pounds then..*pokes belly, starts jiggling* hehe...heh...

I general I agree with moosey

Another thing a lot of people think that americans are one-sided.
They are. They elect - the majority - to be informed only about the news in the narrow area of the country, and know next to nothing of the other countries in the world. And while I am on that subject, the 'world' in the US definition means the lower 48, so you're even biased against Hawaii, Alaska, Guam, Puerto Rico, etc. I digress. Anyway, you can not imagine how demeaning (contemptuous?) it is having to explain to innocent-in the truest sense of the word-citizens of the most powerful country in the world of how biased their view is. And the real irony is, the Mr. Average Yank doesn't care.

Quote:
In The USA they don't care who you are.
Thank you for your confirmation. :)

Quote:
If you work hard you can succeed.
But only after you have figured out how to get out of the minimum wage trap.

Quote:
They do not have these prejuduce about people.
I would say that is slightly biased after 9-11.

Quote:
People have a fair start.
Can you explain that to me ?

Quote:
They don't care if you are a Jew, black or Russian.
As long as you contribute to the "bottom line", right ?

Quote:
If you are qualified, you get the job, get paid well.
I thought everybody was a wage slave?

Quote:
Enjoyment. Or believe me Americans know how to relax and enjoy.
Tailgate BBQ parties, right?

Quote:
They are at least all over Europe. They are a big percentage of all tourists in Europe.
That was before 9-11. You haven't heard of all the big airlines in Europe declaring bankruptcy ?

Quote:
In England not everybody has a chance for education, if you do not pass your finales or so.
That's a new one on me. As far as I know, if you want to upgrade your education, there is a safety net. Better than being bankrupted to the hilt with costly education bills a la US style. But I think I missed your point her ... would it be possible for you to explain what you mean here ?

Quote:
But in USA you have always.
Yep .. the USA has PO Box degrees.

Quote:
I know that there are exceptions but then Why so many people come to America?
Because once you're in ... its easy to work under the visible horizon. That's how a lot of Latino's do it ... didn't you hear ... that most of the boom in the southern Midwest is solely dependent on the ultra-low salaries that illegals are willing to work for. Why, even a big shopping company out of R-kansas got caught having janitorial staff that got paid pennies ... you mean you didn't hear about that ?

Could we please stop with the country bashing. Every counrty has good and bad parts. Not everyone from the USA is the way you protray them. Can we just remeber that words do hurt, even if you were not directing them at say the person writing this post. Please lets get back on topic. Either way this interview is strange. Something about it just doesn't feel right. I think their words just came out wrong, or taken out of context?

One of the nice things about internet forums is the opportunity to exchange information unfiltered by the media -- controlled by who knows what. If we can't tolerate some mild discussion on particular characteristics of a country's politics, culture, business practices, media habits etc., then we are too fragile to be in any discussion group.

I would like to request the following:

- if you would like to discuss a country, it's people and their way of life that you please do so in a way that will not offend people -- this goes for all countries.

- it is possible to discuss things in a unfiltered environment in a polite way. Just because it's unfiltered doesn't mean that one has to be cynical and offensive.

- again, we encourage open discussion but please remember that words can hurt and that it is really not necessary to get "down and dirty" when engaging in discussion. If you want to hear and see that then tune into FOX news and check-out The O'Reilly Factor.

Suggestion :
... I think this topic has run its course, and therefore it should be closed.

I'm interested in seeing if the uncle is going to be taking part in any upcoming activities related to the wedding. Also, if we will see any future interviews of the CP and the soon to be Crown Princess.
imo it would be a good idea to do some damage control, and have Mary go around visiting historical aspects of Denmark.

Excuse me but although I agree with you in principle, as an American, I claim the last word on this topic.

Well, I mean I am an American in the only sense that really counts -- that is from the United States of America, where all the citizens are smarter, bigger, meaner, more right and more moral than anyone else in the world. Did I leave anything out? Oh, yes, I forgot, as Americans we are more magnanimous than all other people as long as these other people remember their proper place in the pecking order. B)

Ok, back on topic, NOW... NO MORE about whose country is worse, which people are better. This thread's about teh Danish Crown Prince, his fiancee, and the disasterous "interview" they gave. Let's talk about that, ok people...

It is not a good idea to close the topic as there may be more" Mary Quips"
that leak out of the media for these posters to enjoy...
so this is not over by any means...it is a "quiet week" but trust me on this:
another MARY-sensation or fiasco or whatnot is comming down the pipeline.
Stay tuned folks.

There appears to be just a simple mistranslation. Problem was also with connotation as well.

Frederik i Kosovo

Kronprins Frederik landede i går klokken 16 i Kosovo, hvor den danske bataljon med spænding har set frem til at møde Kronprinsen i Camp Olaf Rye, Mitrovica i Kosovo.

I Kosovo er man øvet i fine besøg. For nylig statsminister Anders Fogh Rasmussen, og ugen før kronprinsebesøget både den svenske og danske forsvarsminister. Frederik er ankommet, mens bataljonen i længere tid har forberedt at indføre fuld bevægelsesfrihed for befolkningen i det etnisk spændte område. Patruljeringen er intensiveret hele døgnet for at være klar til at gribe ind med det samme, hvis den øgede bevægelsesfrihed skulle medføre uro. Frederik tager hjem igen onsdag. Cath

Danish Crown Prince Frederik is happy about Søren Mosegaard&#39;s new
shock-novel, Per Thornit from the Danish Court writes in a letter to
Horrorcomix Publishing.

The novel, Dronning Margrethe von Donner und Blitz, describes Mosegaard&#39;s
loveaffair with Crown Prince Frederik&#39;s 17-year old daughter.
