    Yeah, PMQ's is pretty hilarious, FMQ's doesn't quite reach it's entertainment value, this is about the best we get:



    Honestly, I feel like an MP shouting "Your mom!" wouldn't be out of place in a PMQ's debate, especially because the backbenchers all join in with catcalls afterwards.

    Because Americans spawned from Europeans?
    That's basically the reason.
    But hell, I'd still stake that majority of middle class Americans or lower couldn't point out Europe on a map.
    We stopped searching for monsters under our beds when we realized that they were inside us.

    Tell me something, my friend. You ever dance with the devil in the pale moonlight?

    That's a pretty damn absurd assumption.

    Sure, most Americans are spawned from western and southern Europeans, but there are many Americans of Asian and African descent.

    Americans stating their disinterest for half the planet. Shocker. Is this why most Americans never leave the state they are born in?

    Going to need to see a source for this. There's a big difference between never "leaving" your state and living in one state your whole life. You can't tell me that most Europeans move out of their birth country to live in another country. The reasons for never moving away should be obvious. Family, friends, etc.
    I sat alone in the dark one night, tuning in by remote.
    I found a preacher who spoke of the light, but there was Brimstone in his throat.
    He'd show me the way, according to him, in return for my personal check.
    I flipped my channel back to CNN and lit another cigarette.

    I'm a Forsaken. I kill firstborns while their mamas watch. I turn cities into salt. I even, when I feel like it, rip the souls from little girls, and from now till kingdom come, the only thing you can count on in your existence is never understanding why.

    Well considering next to no one has money, I could see how people are afraid to move a great distance into a new state. Can I really back it up? No, but it seems reasonable off that basis. However, knowing that I could buy a mansion in another state at the fraction of a three bedroom California home, I can see why people would also want to get the hell out.

    I can confirm that to be incorrect. The one Zoomgpally posted is a bit more of an accurate display. However, Kuthe being horribly ignorant of the situation, doesn't seem to realize that the US revolution is beaten into us as a young age. We know where everyone is within the third grade just to clarify the situation.

    Like the rest of the immigrants that fled to America, yes. But of course, they triumphed successfully. Now before you make anymore dipshit comments to make yourself look like an asshole, I suggest you change your fucking mindset.

    Have a good day. :)

    Point was the Government here is screwing everyone over and is greatly in debt. Don't be so quick to be defensive.

    Well, I mean you seriously just did insult me and my whole family, so I don't really understand why I wouldn't.
    Please proofread the next time, thanks.

    Why does 'leaving' your state mean move forever? I was not talking about moving house and home, simply talking about how most Americans literally never throughout their life leave the confines of their state

    Actually the first part was praise for pushing to make a better life for themselves and the second half was laughing at the irony of the situation. DON'T WORRY MAN, I STILL LOVE YOU!

    That itself I can't believe. I don't even like to travel and I've been out of state various times. The pleasure of being in the United States is that each state is almost like it's own country. People are different when you go between cities. Even in large states like California, going from Orange County to Northern California you even see a shift in how people act. This brings in all sorts of attractions with food, large amusement parks and just visiting other family. Hell, everyone in high school talks about a "cross country road trip" of sorts at some point.

    And I asked for you to link the source of this information. And while I have zero proof it smells like pure BS to me. But I'm not the one making the statement, you are. Thus you provide the source of the information.

    And even if you are correct, and as I've stated I have no information other than gut feeling you aren't, try not to forget we have many states larger than many European countries.

    Let's see:

    "They had a poor background and managed to reestablish themselves in the United States of America to try and get away from poverty and poor Government? Haha, suckers."

    That's enough to piss me off, thank you very much.
    Fucking besides, it's confusing enough to make it difficult to understand you don't mean harm.

    In my opinion the USA has better scenery. I don't think anything compares if you're just matching countries. North America vs Europe is more fair.
