    They really believe that Americans are the most ignorant people on earth:

    I wouldn't say Americans are the most ignorant people in the world. A certain type of American is ignorant compared to most other western countries...

    Not really. Most other western countries are a lot more worldly. In Europe alone, the whole continent is about the size of the US and had dozens of cultures and languages. NZ and Australia have one of the highest passport ownerships in the world - while the US has one of the lowest.

    I'm unsurprised. Other than perhaps on degree, I've never seen you disagree with any post of his. You are like Forrest and Jenny.

    dr gump have you ever been to the us...one thing about it...hard to see it all....europe is small....the us is not...and we have many diverse cultures and all...each region is different and unique in its own way...from the amish....or hassidics (sp?) to the pot farmers in california...

    anyone thinking americans are cookie cutter people is sorely mistaken....a lot of americans simply prefer to travel american...
