More SUVs in Germany than Panzers at the moment.

4 of those things also happen in Germany a lot. We don't have drive-up ATM machines.
Well, yes, and very likely in many other western style societies too. "Only in America" ought not be taken literally. The expression is merely meant to point to the fact that though the USA is chockablock with personable and nice (do look up the etymology of "nice" ;) ) folk, the nation lacks any culture other than what can be found in a Petri dish and that the expression "US civilisation" is an oxymoron. It is regrettable that so many other nations are trying to emulate that.

Y'all are just jealous because you didn't come up with DisneyWorld and Ronald McDonald.
Yeah well that's just, like, your opinion, man.

I am planning to take the future grand kids to Disneyland. More homeless people around it, but fewer alligators and guns around it than Disney World. And since alligators eat kids inside it, you would need the gun!

Plus Orlando has all those other parks so you have to go with the same kids as teens. Not for me!

DisneyWorld is Bigger and Better! Universal Studios just announced plans for another MegaThemePark, which is just what Orlando needs.

I've been to Disney World a couple of times, but not in the last 25 years. I'm good with that. Now, if they'd just open Redneck World with The Feral Hog 'Coaster and Bumper Airboats I'd have to go. 10% off if you bring a 30 round mag.

The people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country. —Hermann Göring

CNN
The proposal is simple: Anyone purchasing a gun should be required to enlist for military reserve service, spanning the entire period of their gun ownership.

Under this proposal, being granted a handgun license would simultaneously and automatically register you to serve as a reservist in the Armed Forces branch of your choice

Do you mean to say that if they can't get in they don't get a gun?

The only barriers imposed would be standard mental health and background checks — the same ones all military enlistees are required to undergo. Do you have a criminal record? An "adverse disposition" (such as, say, a history of domestic violence)? Unfortunately, you wouldn't be eligible to serve — and as a result, not eligible to carry a weapon. The proposal would keep the lower age limit of 18 for enlistment too; if you're not allowed to sign contracts or vote, you wouldn't be allowed to serve (or own a gun), at least not without parental consent.

Just what white-nationalists spree-shooters need: military discipline and advanced weapons training. I mean, look what it did for Oswald.
