Hey guys, we saved you from Mussolini and if it weren't for us you'd all be speaking Italian.

I hope some whiney Farker enters the thread and cries about some perceived, nonexistent loss of natural rights as God (alsö nonexistent) so never gifted to His mental midgets.

Wait, other countries apply uniform rules across wealth disparities? Oh, just for non-residents. Well, I guess that's something.

If I were any other nation I would ban Americans until we get a decent President.

You seem perfectly happy claiming victory in that argument whether it happens or not.

The answer to that is a resounding "OH HELLZ YES".

Rich people could have a very nice time in a villa in Sardinia on the Med for two weeks.  They could probably buy the villa, the catering company, a vineyard.   Poor people meeting a border problem just get their kids separated into cages, and get shipped 2000 miles away in the dead of night.

This story is as sad as the poor people caught in a luxury resort on an eastern Mediterranean island for a month which had no virus, so no masks or restrictions.  They just couldn't leave.  The internet worked fine, too.

To most of us, the experience can be duplicated at home by binge watching italian tv, eating real pizza, playing opera and pop music, and tuning up the Vespa.

Now I'm slightly curious what kind of range private jets have these days -- can you fly direct from somewhere in the U.S. to Italy, or do they have to do the old-fashioned 'stop in Newfoundland and Ireland for fuel' thing?

There are a few that can fly 7k+ miles.

They should be prosecuted for even trying. Isn't that what the MAGAs say about anyone  approaching our southern border?
 
2020-07-03 8:19:57 PM  
here's the kicker:


...to find a solution that would allow American passengers to stay in Sardinia, even by submitting to quarantine," said the Sardinian president.

and people wonder why rich Americans are hated.  The Sardinian President had his lips all primed and tongue all ready to lick some boots and kiss some ass.

I bet at least one of the Europeans on the plane "knows" the Sardinian President and told everyone that it'll be fine.

It's an island that depends heavily on tourist dollars.
Of course he wanted to accommodate them.

Sardinia is weird, I hiked there in the early 2000s.

There were a few enclaves that were playgrounds for the very, very rich. As in, "have your racecar shipped to our private racetrack that replicates curves from other famous racetracks" rich.

But the interior is like a Fellini movie, right down to the black-clad widows who take their knitting down to the town square to see if the bus brings some interesting passengers that day. I traveled with two lady friends (platonic as all out) and the number of eyebrows raised was something to behold. As was the number of local gents trying to figure out which lady was the single one.

It's also stunningly gorgeous. Granite, maquis and Mediterranean blue. Le sigh, I want to go back.

Little exaggerated but damn near close.
In Canadian schools we are taught all of the names and locations of all American States, capitol cities and what not.
Same for Europe and to a point Africa (not that we remember most of it but we're still taught it).
Americans are taught America and maybe a rough sketch of the world once.
The last time I visited 'Murica, Fack Ya!!
I went to get my hair cut in Valdosta Georgia and the girl said I had an accent. Asked me if I was from the Northern States.
I told her no, I'm from a little further North than they are.
She looks blankly at me after a few minutes she said Canadian??? oh my lord it must be beautiful up there with the Gazelles and Antelopes in the grass fields..
I didn't bother correcting her cuz I wanted my hair to look good.

Divert them to the bottom of the ocean.  Make them live stream the whole ordeal so we all can see the terror in their eyes for making the mistake of travel during the corona.  Use their deaths as a warning to all the people who need to be welded into their homes because they are too stupid and cant be trusted to be outside.

Five Americans, and five people from other nations. All had been traveling together beforehand, doing exactly the same things. Yet only the Americans were refused entry.

New Zealand may not have any active coronavirus, but that doesn't mean a New Zealand passport holder who's been in the US is any less likely to be carrying the disease.

Should have shot the plane down as it entered international airspace.  Nothing of value would have been lost.

I'm ashamed a New Zealander would try that shiat. Also surprised that they went to Sardinia instead of coming back to the Land of the Free (of Covid)

10 tourists, no matter how rich, are not going to spend enough money to even be a blip on the tax form.

this was about the rich "having a connection" and believing with ample evidence that the laws don't apply to them.
