Pigs

Americans are the worst tourists in the world. They think so themselves, a study conducted by marketing company Mandala Research showed.
During the study, 5,600 people from five countries were asked to describe their attitudes towards tourists from different countries, the Rossiiskaya Gazeta newspaper wrote. It turned out that every fifth respondent said that U.S. citizens were "the worst tourists." Interestingly, the majority of those who said so were American citizens themselves.
Russian tourists closed the top five of the worst tourists in the world. Travelers from China took the second place in the ranking of the worst tourists in the world. The third place belongs to tourists from France, whilst the fourth was "awarded" to Japanese tourists. The top ten included citizens of Korea, India, Germany, Spain and the UK. The "black list" ended with tourists from Ireland, Switzerland and Australia.

I had a friend at work tell me about the English language Pravda - said that I ought to check it out, that they were brutal about the state of American politics nowadays.
I went to the site out of boredom one night and was pretty fucking surprised at what I found. These motherfuckers run a right wing paper. It's none of the socialist propoganda that I expected, matter of fact, they don't cut their own politicians any slack either.
Check it out if you want to see for yourself. You'll find the link in my Right Wing commentators sidebar.

I've been reading it off and on for several years. Several other Asian and European news agencies as well. You have to, to know what is actually going on in the world!

I agree with Timbo, if you want the real scoop on what's going on in our country, you have to go out of country to get it. The BBC, DailyMail, Telegraph, Guardian, Pravda and many others are far more valuable news sources than the fourth estate bullshit we got around here.

I've been reading Pravda off and on awhile too. They really only do the big news, but it's always interesting to see what they say about it.
