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.

They understand rates, just bring up that more whites are killed by cops than other races, and then all the sudden rates matter.

Our current positivity rates are almost triple that of Europe.  Historically they were worse, but that has vastly changed over the past 2 months.  They have their positivity rates per test below 2% but the US is between 5 and 15%.


The whole point was to slow the spread.  That's exactly what we did and what we are doing.  Remember, so the hospitals weren't overwhelmed, flatten the curve and all that?  We weren't going to stop it.  The US is a really, really big country and it was going to take time to spread in other regions of the US, while in the places it hit first, the numbers are going down.

Another way to look at this was that the prior lockdowns in the states having problems were premature or inappropriate.  States like NY,NJ,CT,MA, etc. were being ravaged by it while other states had little or no issue.

Everywhere had to lockdown because of the East Coast.  Now that it's stopped burning through those states and is hitting the states that already spent months on various levels of lockdown, would it be reasonable to expect NY, NJ, MA, CT, etc. to stay locked down?

You might be on to something - maybe we should start acting more like Poland, Serbia, Czechia, etc.  Look at their infection and death rates - astoundingly low (they are some of the ones keeping the overall European average down, BTW,).  Perhaps we can become as insular and homogeneous as Japan.

Please understand that I have serious maternal issues.  I know I have mentioned my father gave me a 250-million-dollar loan that eventually led to a successful company worth around one-hundred million dollars.  If it was not for my mother, this loan would have been half-a-billion.  She cut me off at the knees.

The fact you imply my maternal trauma has resulted in a latent desire for women of significantly above-average height that have won multiple martial arts championships across multiple disciplines, who coerces me into the locker room with all of her fit friends, is a disgusting and unfounded claim and you should be ashamed of yourself.

The reality is that me and these women will play real-life on the highest difficulty level, as Republican policies lead to the disintegration of the country and something not unlike the cutting-edge masterpiece The Last of Us: Part 2: Ellie's Revenge: Part 3, one of multiple downloadable content campaigns in the Season 4 pass for Season 1.

I thirst for violence because I play life on the "Hardcore" difficulty setting.  The only question is what the women will do with my corpse after have treated me to unimaginable desires.  My guess is that I was delicious.  I can't wait.

1 Luxemborg 6869
2 Sweden 6700
3 Belarus 6574
4 Spain 6338
5 Iceland 5398 (note, only 341K population)
6 Belgium 5300
7 Ireland 5157
8 UK 4606 (does not include the Isle of Man, the Faeroe Islands, and Gibraltar)
10 Russia 4439

Cases per million
USA 8149
Brazil 6510

States worse than the US (skipping the tiny ones listed above) in cases per million.
Qatar 34,222
Bahrain 15,430
Chile 14,616
French Guiana 13410 (only 298K population)
Kuwait 10,818
Mayotte 9544 (only 272K)
Armenia 8620
Peru 8565

So, America is not the worst in terms of cases per million but is definitely near the top, and is absolute worst in absolute cases.

Why can't Americans tell the difference between the EU and the continent of Europe?

Why would the Faroe Islands ever randomly be included with the UK, they're Danish.

I use to go to the US about 3 times a year.  Haven't been once since Trump has been in power.

Well right now we're the COVID capital of the Western World so we don't have room to talk.

Neither our death nor case rate shows that.

Another farker who doesn't understand how rates work.

They understand rates, just bring up that more whites are killed by cops than other races, and then all the sudden rates matter.

Our current positivity rates are almost triple that of Europe.  Historically they were worse, but that has vastly changed over the past 2 months.  They have their positivity rates per test below 2% but the US is between 5 and 15%.

The whole point was to slow the spread.  That's exactly what we did and what we are doing.  Remember, so the hospitals weren't overwhelmed, flatten the curve and all that?  We weren't going to stop it.  The US is a really, really big country and it was going to take time to spread in other regions of the US, while in the places it hit first, the numbers are going down.

If a farking shanty town in India can all but stop it, then the US should be able to.  40k cases a day is catastrophic.


Did you think about this post at all before making it?

Are they being executed in broad daylight with people videoing it and screaming that they are committing murder?


Only in the Republic of Chopistan.

Does not hurt my feelings at all.
I can't blame them.

It is embarrassing that we are currently under the rule of an orange shiatgibbon, that has brought us to where we are now.
