  3. I got the same expressions of condolence in the European organisation where I was working south of Frankfurt the morning after the Brexit vote. Sometimes it's an advantage to be a SCOTTISH English teacher;-) Before giving a one-day seminar on my homeland for the German Adult Education authorities, I bought a T-shirt emblazoned with "Keep Calm - it wasnae me!"

  7. Sooooo true. I was abroad a lot during the Bush years and was fearful of going overseas now (due to the criticism). This spring, everyone I met in Australia and Cambodia kept asking me if it was as bad as the media was portraying...

  8. They reprimand the US while they ignore their own problem with terrorism and pretend to be tolerant of different ideals.

    1. As if Trump has an ideal, and as if he's going to do anything against terrorism...

  9. Just this morning I read on BBC that according to a recent survey of more than 40000 people in 37 countries, the popularity of the US and its president is all time low: "The survey shows only two of the 37 countries have a better opinion of Mr Trump than they had of his predecessor Barack Obama: Israel and Russia."
