    Angry Everything you hate about the European Union, or a member country.

    Hey, there's one about the USA.
    With the importance of self-critique i'm making a thread for people, American, Asian, African or even Europeans to tell us just what they think of Europe!

    Does this shower of shite count?

    Do heads of government count (a certain gentleman from that bootshaped part of our continent comes to mind)?

    Otherwise:
    - eurocentrism (we are the cradle and the center of civilization, are we not?)
    -Obamamania
    - that weird combination of thinking of Americans as inferior hillbillies and yet wanting to adopt every sh*t that comes here from across the Atlantic
    - where on earth can I get a decent donut? (yes, I DO see the irony)
    - the way the EU handels immigration (especially from subsaharan Africa), which leads to thousands of people drowning in the Mediterranean
    -racism and the assumption it only exists elsewhere
    - how century old wounds still seperate some of us (Balkans anyone? not to mention Ireland, oh, and then there is centralism vs. autonomous regions, etc., don´t get me started!)
    - I love Lena, but is the Eurovision Song Contest really the best this continent has to offer???????

    Europe is kinda big, I don't really feel right lumping them together.

    I guess their resistance to being fiscally responsible is annoying. Protesting cuts when your country is on the brink of bankruptcy is idiotic.

    C'mon, we've been fighting for Europe from the very beginning. As I write Aussies are fighting alongside NATO. And there was talk a little while ago of us joining NATO.

    Fortunately all our institutions are British. And geographically we are part of four Continents in a line - North America, South America, Antarctica and Australia. And all four Continents have been settled by Europeans.

    Literate Europe exploded onto the world lining up the four Continents in the seven seas.

    But as I write electronic Europe is imploding into the Noosphere, and here we are - look, right in front of you.
