Well At Least It Ain't Europe

That's always how I want to measure the success of a nation.

"At least we're not __________"

It's like your mom when she would say to you as a kid, "Well at least you don't have cancer!"


"At least you have food on the table!"

I dislike those kind of comparisons because it lowers the bar and brainwashes you to have low expectations. ie-Since you DON'T have ebola and are NOT paralyzed from the neck down you should be GRATEFUL that the country is collapsing.

Belgium is a freak show. They should have split the country two years ago and put Wallonia under direct rule by the EU. That way Wallonians would be happy to be ruled by the social fascist of the EU and other Europeans could watch what happens if you are hand over government to Brussels.

It's almost as annoying as the people that push for a Government program in the US because "XYZ nation has it, and all their citizens like it."

Frankly, I am not going to become a fan of pickled beets because Natasha likes them. (Well, probably not, who can tell really.)
