I know this has been asked before but I forget everyone's answer and some of you have probably changed your mind.

So what is your favorite country and why?

If he was racist against muslims I don't think he would like France much, considering it has like the largest amount of muslims out of any European country.

Their banning burqas to get them to leave and saying that if you wear one your not a real citizen.

Anyway I love German food its my fave. I like the bread and the meat. Their Burger King was was even better.

I don't think very many people are going to leave simply because burqas are banned many of the people who wear them are European converts to Islam.

Yea, I wasn't too crazy about the food when I was there. Austria had some pretty delicious dishes though.

Its the idea that theres a group of people with their rights being restricted. Mom said France seems to becoming the new Germany.

Canada, 'cause we've got universal healthcare, hot French chicks, gay marriage, oil, poutines, government owned news agencies, and cheap drugs (both kinds).

I thought your mom hated muslims? Anyway, I can kinda understand the motivation behind banning it, in order to prevent the spread of Islamic fundamentalism, however I'm against the ban due to the fact that most people who wear burqas do so by choice. You have to really respect these people, considering covering the entire face isn't even an actual requirement in the Qur'an.

She confuses me. She wanted an excuse to get mad at me for hating the U.S and say that this is not the WORST country. So I guess as long as its not the worst its good? Idk.

I'm against it too because its hindering rights. Wearing a burqa does not make one a suicide bomber. Having rights being taken could probably add to the motivation.

Ireland and Nicaragua both because of the people and the beauty, oh and the beauty in the people.

Although.....after interactions with Panda....just kidding, still love Ireland.

That seems to be a common argument actually. "Oh they could hide bombs under their burqas". To me, that's just absurd. Only a very tiny minority of muslims are hell-bent on blowing up the west. Most just want to be able to practice their religion in peace and banning islamic things doesn't help the situation.

Thats my point lol.

Did you know me telling people to kill and eat animals is based on my emotions? I was unaware of that. I thought if I was using emotions I would tell people eating meat is horrible and just wrong and it kills innocent animals etc.
I thought I was on the non emotional side lmao.

Hehe the people are ok, if not fairly Americanised in the cities. And yes, much of the countryside is still intact, and there is still a lot of historical sites to visit. I would recommend staying in Clare. I've been there and it's both beautiful and there's a lot of stuff to see. The great thing is that Ireland is fairly mall so you nothing is ever more than a 2 hour drive away.

Been a few times and loved it. Although it seem a little less Irish, and more European. Still, the people were as friendly as you can find, and funny, a lot like Badger. I enjoyed Dunmore East, and Mulingar (might be spelling wrong), and... so many places. Better than the USSR ;-)

But it is beautiful there. Lol we learned in our geography class that Canada is in a perma-frost state. Every Canadian I talked to says thats a bunch of bull. I find it hilarious. (that's why Americans are so stupid btw)

Haha I know of somebody who went to the USSR. She went in 1986, so in the last few years of Gorbachev's era so it would have been quite westernized by then.
