    lol. I'm emailing this to my wife at work. It will be the first thing in her inbox tomorrow.

    Does anyone know what happened to the Dixie Chicks?

    to be honest my knowledge of romania extends to that their capital is bucharest and which soccer teams celtic can be drawn against in the europa league this season.

    i would agree with the general concesus of being pretty pissed off if i'd paid money to go to a concert only to have political opinions rammed down my throat (U2 would be the exception because you know to expect that). but then i'd be pretty pissed off if i'd paid money to go see madonna in the first place.

    Eastern Europe and Western Europe are very different culturally. Don't confuse the two.

    I don't think that statement is very bright. The more attention that can be brought to oppressed people's around the world the better off we all are. What she did can only help the Roma, whether you like her personally or not, it was a noble thing she did.

    I doubt you've been to either.

    Never the less, your statement is irrelevant. Re-read and get back to me.

    Thank you.

    People take notice of what she says (as evidence by you commenting on it) and she is using her platform to bring attention to an oppressed minority in Eastern Europe, which many people in America don't know about. How is that bad?

    Why are you siding with people who oppress gypsies? Those people at that Madonna concert deserved to berated for being bigoted scum, no matter who was doing the berating.

    I've been to Western Europe.

    What's your point. You just said Europe in general, and the article itself discussed almost exclusively Eastern Europe.

    De nada.

    I asked about America and why we break our necks (Liberals) to try and be more like them when clearly, they do not like us, do not respect us and have their own cultural issues.

    You pointed out the difference between Eastern Block and Western Europe. Way to nail the subject matter.

    Try again.

    Um actually the whole article was about Eastern Europe's oppression of the gypsies. Then you said:

    Having said this, it strikes me odd that we, as a Nation have so embraced so many European ideas and views. Yet, for the most part, Europe finds it very easy to critacise America for almost everything we do. However, if an American does the same to them, they look down on us.

    How is Western Europe relevant at all to the article you posted?

    Try again.

    OK, I don't do stupid Rat.

    Clearly you have no answer to the question I asked. Just leave it alone.

    Liberals want to adopt certain things (not all) from Europe because they work. Whether they like us or not is not relevant, however Europeans have had a much more favorable view of America as of late so your premise in that regard is not valid. So there is my answer.

    Anyhow, back to the point I was making. Within the same post in which you posted an article about how Eastern Europeans oppress gypsies you talk about Europeans looking down their noses at us when they are just as bad. You clearly mixed up Western and Eastern Europeans, which is why your post didn't make any sense whatsoever.

    I didn't mix anything up. I simply asked a question. You made the distinction between East and West.

    As for the things that work, well, once I see those things, I'll get back to you on how much I like them or not.

    Your question is suspiciously irrelevant to the article you posted.

    What in the hell are you talking about? European models work but the people who are suffering under them want them?
