No disrespect but many Americans are absolutetly useless at geography.
I think it's the weekest of all their 'curiculum subjects'.
Althought they know a load about Downton Abbey
Someone asked me if France is the capital of Paris.
I heard someone on the radio the other day (the extremely annoying, entertaining and worldly Sandy Rios and Tea party member) said "The group of countries known as The Netherlands........"
She followed that by saying. "My husband and I were in London a few weeks ago and arrived late at our hotel. The restaurant was shut and the manager arranged for us to get something to eat. It was awful, mind you you'd have to search a long way in England to get decent food" Perhaps she meant a burger, hot dog, fatty ribs, bologna or macaroni and cheese.
Those old enough to remember the Beirut bombings, something like 95% of American tourists cancelled their trips to London because Beirut was to close to London.
About as close as Miami to Seattle.
Other than that (which is only a minor point and makes me chuckle) I like it here.
Trust me you have not seen the worst of it. I went to Vietnam over the summer and was shocked by how little most Americans aged roughly between 21-26 had no idea of the world outside of America. One instant which will remain with me to the grave was meeting some children who had been born with disabilities due to Agent Orange and most of the Americans in the group thought that the Americans went into Vietnam to help prevent the Chinese from dropping Napalm etc....I am not kidding here and nor were they. I dont think my jaw has ever dropped so low when in a conversation.
What were they taught at school????
Trouble is they aren't taught anything at school. You have to keep them dumb if you expect them to vote for leftism.
Vietnam IS a naturally beautiful country, is it not?
