Thump, thump, thump...

Via American Digest, we meet a typical propagandized European who can’t quite consolidate the media plonk he’s been digesting and the facts: prattling on and on about the environment, he forgets that without America, there might never have been a movement for clean air and clean water.

What I do mind is that Americans are setting a bad example for everyone else; as a small example the streets of Britain are filled with grotesquely large 4x4s. I am quite sure the fashion comes from across the pond. As another, the Chinese might well ask why they should restrict their economic growth when America already uses many times more fuel than they do - and they'd be right.
Thump, thump, thump... No Londoner has ever thought for himself then. Eh? Is the critic’s assumption that they’re incapable of ti?
What I do mind is various American corporations not only trying to foist their Frankenstein food on us, but trying to make it impossible for us to tell that they are doing it - did you know that Monsanto are claiming in various court cases that labelling of food containing GM soya is against free trade treaties?
Thump, thump, thump... Whatever you do, don’t mind the omnipresence of that Europe, Inc., that chosen champion that gets subsidies, putsches, and industrial espionage services from the all caring, all fair emotional crutch called the bloated, overbearing state.
As for the last paragraph - well, personally, I don't dive a damn whether Americans kill themselves through gross overeating and under-exercising, filling their food with chemicals for short-term profit or turning their cities' air into poison gas - not to mention handing terrorists billions of dollars to kill Americans (and others) with.
Thump, thump, thump... Pay no notice to the man behind the curtain, the one that continues to coddle any dictator with natural resources which can provide an economic advantage, or for that matter, seven centuries of it.

More curious still is that the commenter misuses the moniker “Fletcher Christian”, try to make himself out to be a dashing rebellious hero who was in fact a thin-skinned, emotional pedophile.

Too tall, too short. Too fit, too fat. Too this, too that, and so on. Is it any wonder that the quickest way for a European to make someone detest hin is merely to call attention to their received wisdom.
