No one is saying all cultures are equal. It's the measuring stick that matters.

Bhutan has 1/6 as much culture as Israel (much of which is probably accounted for by the scarcity of cous-cous and military-grade weapons).

You're right and so is Mitt. Some cultures are superior and the way to measure them is GDP/capita. That's why we know that Qatar is culturally superior to America, DC is culturally superior to all 50 states, and Delaware is the most cultured state.

"Gosh, such a large menu, and I've never had brunch here before. Can either of you tell me if the bacon here is any good? What?"


I unwittingly ordered a cheeseburger in a Jewish Diner a few years back. I did argue with them for a bit, since they did have both cheese and hamburgers available for consumption.

Apparently dairy and meat cannot touch each other after they leave the inside of the animal and before they get inside of you.

Last time I checked Israel was not the 51st state. Talk about putting on a show. How lame!

Maybe if Romney wants my vote he should go to Ireland and kiss the blarney stone...bash the British or something. Then I will vote for him because my grandfather came from around Dublin. Remember to wear lots of green Mit.

Does saying that the London Olympics were going to suck when he was on his way to the UK count as bashing the English? Should he have done more of that to earn your vote?

As I said in the other thread, they are not next to each other. Not even near to each other. They are like 800 miles apart dumbasses.It's like saying that England is near Italy or Portugal.

Jake Havechek: Yeah, Mitt, we know, you support aparthied-style government.

No surprise.


As do I.

And no, I do not support Israel's "right" to exist on Palestinian land. If radical-Muslim nukes don't fix it, then plate tectonics will. Mark my words. We should move the whole country to Florida. I love za Jews, I wish they were my neighbors.

The fact of the matter is this: Romney is 100% dead-on right in making this comparison. The MAJOR difference is only that Mexico, Central America and South America are predominately Catholic (or at least Christian). Imagine if they were predominately Muslim.

The United States, as represented by contributors, are very tired of this leaderless situation we've been in for the past 3 1/2 years. President Obama belongs in politics, but he belongs in United Nations politics, not U.S. politics. Thank gawd that's where he's headed after the November elections.

If you worked for an Exxon-like company, who would you rather have as Chairman & CEO? If Exxon was the United States, then Planned Parenthood is Mexico.

I agree. In fact, it's a historical fact that Europeans have demonstrated their cultural superiority vis à vis various African cultures. The disparity in GDP of African & European nations is best explained by a European affinity for technology, as well as an emphasis on a pleasant demeanor in all social interactions which facilitates mutually beneficial commerce. And we can see a modern example of this in the state of African-Americans, whose own rather lowly per capita GDP is a result of deficiencies in the abovementioned. Culture is quite the prevailing factor in terms of economic success.
