    1. This was made by an American who’s only knowledge of Europe is based a summer abroad study program.

    2. This is true in the Northern countries, but… that’s it.

    3. Most Americans actually take several years of a foreign language in school, in many states it’s mandatory. They just forget it because they never use it.

      I know lots of people who took four years of French or Italian and can only remember a few words. I took two years of Danish and never used a word of it on a three week trip to Denmark, they all spoke English.

    6. “Education is a right” “Health care is a right”

      It takes a very special kind of libtard not to know that a “a right” doesn’t mean “something that everyone else has to spend lots of their time, effort and money to give it to me for free so I don’t have to move a single finger to get it.”

      To say that something is a right simply means that the government (or anyone else for that matter) cannot take it away from you without one hell of a reason. It doesn’t mean that they should give it to you.

      To say that everyone else (doctors, nurses, pharmacists, teachers and the community as a whole) should bend over backward to give you something for free, while your greatest contribution to society can be summarize with the words “well, I haven’t robbed, raped, or killed anyone in at least a month…” is nothing more than a rationalization of slavery.

        That’s not what health care in many European countries means, or… anywhere else for that matter? Doctors get paid and people have to pay for health care, it’s not free. But if they get cancer they won’t have to sell their house and be in debt for the rest of their lives just so that they may survive a little longer. Or start cooking meth while on chemo as to not sabotage their family’s future.
        The picture is bullshit but you don’t seem to have any more of a clue than that “libtard”.

        • That’s totally what it means.

          How is a complete failure of a human being like a crack whore going to pay for her treatment in any way? They don’t. You carry the bottom feeding backwash of society in universal health care and its abused like a Jewish kid in a German foster home.

          Here’s what must come first for health care to be a right in the USA:

          price correction. What we pay 10 cents for in Canada you pay 1 dollar. So you need to place mark up restriction on suppliers which requires the kind of transparent reporting no business does in America and then you need to set price points for every product. Now salaries. No doctor can make over 200K a year. Before taxes and anything else like the fees to operate a clinic. That’s out of their pocket. But now they can’t afford to pay off their student loans. Okay now we have to subsidize education. That should be easy.

          …and it goes on and on.

          Health Care should be a privilege of citizenship which should be given to those who earn it and maintain their lives in a way to keep it. So rob a bank or get caught selling meth: no more free health care. No more citizenship either. That’s how I’d do it. We need a slave class. casemods for example. Should he be given free health care? Of course not. He should be locked up and have his citizenship removed for killing his mother.

      • You should totally make a stand against socialist slavery by never using the internet again. After all, you wouldn’t want to a flaming hypocrite that rationalizes the slavery of all those poor DARPA researchers.

      • Im not sure what you’re getting at here, but I’m from the UK – we pay for a service called ‘national insurance’ everyone in employment pays this, and it covers healthcare for whenever you need it. Its like a big pot you contribute to by paying about 8% of your income each month. Doctors nurses etc are well paid, but also recieve cool perks like ‘key worker’ discounts, ‘civil service’ deals, and adamantium skeletal implants. So everyone in the country thinks they are awesome and gives them the best deals, the police and army etc get similar perks. Bearing in mind our hospitals can get v.busy, and the best way to get ill is to visit a hospital – sometimes its better to go private healthcare via Bupa or whatever, as long as you have a good employer that will help pay for it. I had my wisdom teeth extracted by Bupa – and it was like a mini holiday. One of the nurses even sucked me off because I was a little nervous.

        Post Script: Not all the facts presented here are facts.

    8. People forget that America is a melting pot. There are TONS of Americans who speak several languages.

      And those Americans teach their kids how to speak it as well.

      America is great. People don’t understand how awesome it is until they leave it indefinitely.

      Where else can you have Chinatown and Little Italy within driving distance with awesome Mexican and burger joints peppered in between?

      Hell, its worth being an American just for the burger joints.

    9. Been here in Europe about 20 yrs and it’s a fact you want to stay ahead you really should or must speak more than a couple of languages (and my 3 yrs of broken Mexican-Spanish hardly did shit for me here). Working in the radio journalism field it’s an asset and required (I now speak 5 fluently – not bad for a Mexican-American).
      Presently I live and work in Belgium – the centre of the European Parliament – and on any given day via my colleagues I’m exposed to about 20 languages around me. I can’t think of one situation where just a fundamental basic knowledge of another language will ever work against you.
      Family history has given me and my brother a bad ticker and I’ve had about 4 open-heart surgeries with extended hospital stays and rehabilitation. Yes – health care is expensive via my taxes but I’m not in the least bankrupt and I just bought a second home in France. My brother on the other hand in the California after one surgery with a top insurance plan lost everything and has now been living at home for about 4 yrs (he’s 49).
      But I don’t stay here for none of that – I stay here for mainly the 8 weeks of paid holidays (vacations) and where better to ski but the Alps in the winter and summers on topless beaches in France & Italy.
      I love it when Americans say, “America is the melting pot” but you have to remember Europe has the original ingredients for that “melting pot”. I in no way think that Europe is better – just different with lots of spice and ingredients. And being American I get to have the best of both worlds (at the sacrifice of not seeing a Superbowl, World Series, Thanksgiving or “normal over commercialised American” Christmas in 20 yrs).
