netherlands have the lowest percentage of: heroin addicts weed smokers percentage of people in yail murders per citizins people on wellfare -these numbers say it all!
we in the netherlands think :
beeing poor , using drugs , having a no sence of `reality` is a disease. it is better to help those poeple , then to let crooked cops put half the nation in yail. inform think before sprending biaed views.
i agree the U.S.A is realy a : great, powerful , beautiful , divers etc `country` . i have been there many times. but it doesnt make YOU great if you live in it.
i hate to say it but you started bashing the netherlands , without even realizing what is going on in your country. so it is very natural if you act like a stereotype american: talking loudy saying the u.s.a is the greatest etc (while you worked in the netherlands ) , the DUTCH respond to you the way you deserve. It is not becaues we are nationalistic or hate americans , it is because you have no manners or are to superficial to realize you can not act that way.
jake schmitz, you sound like a real fanatic patroit, quote :`just a bunch of socialists/communist sprinkled with a bit of fascist and anti-semites` .......what are you????, do live in alaska defending your property against the wooshy clinton/communist gouvernement . it is all a plan of those damm commies /iraqies ,i tell you.
OH I FORGOT : ONE MORE THING WHAT IS GOOING ON WITH SONY , 19% HIGH. ( but a low volume ,so no big guys are driving the price. what is it ???
Wrong again....New Zealand is one of the finer countrys...Nationalistic?...and the Japanese ain't?....they throw some goofy "tradition" in your face anytime something should be done in a different way. Philips has many plants in the Netherlands.....Almelo, wehre they make Analytical X-ray systems, Medical Systems is in another section...in the Almelo plant, FLUKE test instruments took over PTMI(Philips Test and Measuring ) a few years ago, they make the FLUKE ScopeMeter there. it was originally another PHILIPS product and invention, it is now jsut branded FLUKE....Do you remeber Ann Frank..the Diary of?...Do you know who hid her and her family...I think her name was MEEP...a Dutch citizen, who put herself at risk, to save the Jewish people....Philips also has some lightin plants in the Netherlands, you are uninformed, and basicly clueless. They also have about 7 plants in Mexico, as does SOny and RCA and many other companies, with plants in Mexico...Philips tv sets are still made in TENN(the 27" and above) for the U.S. Canada market..Philips has plants in 66 countries...they have closed down a lot, due to "over capacity"...they want to be down to about 177, rather than about 240 round' the world...Sony wishs it had that massive a manufacturing base....employing a lot of people, in the local market. where are the PlayStations assembled? PlayLand?
The only good thing that ever came out of Holland was.....well I can't think of anything. They do have a nice "Royal" drug park in Amsterdam were one can go and shoot up without being hassled by the police.
Are you a disgruntled former "Royal" Sony employee. You sound like one. Couldn't hack it huh?
