These hard working Americans, who often work very long hours at low paying jobs, with no benefits, WISH they had life as good as people in Europe.
    Somehow you think it selfish of my stepson to have bettered himself, studying hard in aircraft mechanic school and getting FAA certified after having little interest in school at a young age.
    Somehow you think it selfish of me to have buckled down, studied very, very hard through undergrad and grad school, then used my hard earned education to start a business, employ folks, pay payroll taxes and earn an above avg. living. Neither of these things would've been possible in your utopia socialist system because neither of us would've qualified in Germany.
    OK

    German word pronounced g (as in 'get')em-nah-zee-um. A higher level of German high school where only the most qualified are accepted. Almost impossible to gain acceptance into German university without first completing gymnasium and doing well. Impossible to become a zahnartzt without first completing gymnasium.
    I'd probably be a cashier in Germany based on my grades from the 8th grade. Nice system but apparently what you prefer.
    The system is similar in Ireland. I suspect it's similar in your other utopian European countries.

    She's a truly ignorant peasant, doesn't even know what a Gynasium is ffs, why am I not surprised?
