When you find out those are the three countries that are the most successful in our cage fighting competitions, the reality of Europe's rationale becomes very clear.

Given what the twenty-first century has taught and provided us on the matter of the martial arts, it would be a national catastrophe if a plane was to fly into Europe from one of those countries.  The passengers proceeded to pull guard and perform heel hooks on all pedestrian traffic and the rate of leg injuries would skyrocket.

Europe knows that the average person on their streets is a three-stripe purple belt, at-best, and they have used this plague as a convenient excuse to deny the truth, which is that the United States and Brazil and Russia are for the toughest and strongest, both physically and mentally.

But this is what happens when you feminize countries with socialism, they live vicariously through the collective, and the result is that the European Union, collectively, would be helpless if they were cornered in a back alley by a grandma with an appropriately-sized walking stick.

It's no wonder that we had to bail out Europe when Europe tried to take over Europe during the World Wars.  Only a feminized socialist such as yourself would object to American/Russian/Brazilian superiority.  Goddamn feminized socialists.  Your feminized socialism makes me sick.

Go for it, I don't drink.  I get high on life, as I madly shiatpost on this messageboard, to the chagrin of individuals who are simply attempting to discuss what they imagine to be the important things that define our world, getting madder and madder as I calmly explain how the Trump Train is coming into Fark Station, and Conductor Donald smiles madly as the guy down the track pulls the switch, assuring that instead of hitting one progressive, Donald will hit five progressives.  It's lit.

The US didn't go far enough in trying to suppress the spread of communism in South America.  That said, if we're such a shiathole, why haven't all the people who think that gotten the fark out?

I am so ashamed to be an American right now. We are an embarrassment in front of the rest of the world. We have raised two generations of entitled Karens and snowflakes who honestly believe civilization should conform to whatever offends them this month, lest they be inconvenienced or get hurt feelings. The sad fact is that our leadership is only a reflection of this problem, not the sole cause of it. It's who we hired for the job. But compound that with Floridians, etc., who won't adhere to basic guidelines and you have the utter disastrous failure we see before us. And the worst is on its way. I am profoundly disturbed that I felt compelled to even write this.

While it's bad to be shunned for having an infectious disease, actually having the disease is worse.   I'll care about people shunning us for letting Trump destroy everything once we no longer have Trump destroying everything.

Well, we have the highest population in "the Western World", so adjust for deaths per million, and we have lower numbers than UK, Spain, Italy, Sweden, and France.  However, their lockdowns were tougher and therefore more effective, so "right now" we are doing much worse.

It's not so much an issue of the EU "respecting" the US.  It's science and numbers.

The numbers in the US are going up, so the EU will ban travel from that area.

It's not a vindictive measure.  It's not for spite, or "stiginit" to the Americans.  It's about protecting their people.

No amount of "respect" for America would change that.  Once the numbers reflect a level where the travel is advisable, it will be permitted again.

Unless someone thinks the EU is a bunch of grade school kids on the playground or something.

I know.  Hell, previous arguments had farkers using raw numbers to defend their point, then immediately going to per capita when I would say that the US had done the most testing.

I'm still not going to let it slide though.
