Our prime minister suffers with the same flaw...

I was told by a French foreign exchange student from two years ago I should minor in french in college (she also said to major in political science, move to France, and become a politician), though that might be a biased vote.

DungeonDude, I'm just trying to calculate whether a strong-minded, straight-talking, pro-hunting, catholic Republican like yourself would be highly respected by the French... or chased out of the country in tar and feathers.

Hmmm....

Better play it safe... Forget France. Move to Ireland. Very Happy

I took German in High School. Didn't have the ability to grasp it at the time, but it counted as my foreign language, so that was that.

Took Japanese in College. Loved it!

I should have taken Spanish.

Ironic isn't...

In varying combinations, those were exactly the qualites that gave rise to William the Conqueror, Richard the LionHeart, as well as gave rise to the Magna Carta & ultimately many Western Democracies...

Screw the people in Brussels, Belgium doesn't exist anyway. Also, what would they do, go against their views to remove me? They aren't the US and don't assassinate someone who gets in the way of their plans, they are the EU who rallies everyone against the threat in a political sense in hopes it will be neutralized. Also, I think I would stay more to Switzerland if they don't go and drastically change the gun laws.

Words of a well travelled (Internet) voyager? How do you find these silly blogs, Dunge?
If you want a taste of what Europe is really like, try Monty Python's silly walks instead.
Stay out of Europe is my advice. You won't feel safe there - they don't have guns, and the sharpest thing you'll find in a classroom is the teacher's wit. Twisted Evil
