differences { US vs Europe...bang vs boobies

Today while ingesting my morning bit of OmniNerd where they were discussing Vermont's rumblings about becoming the American version of Quebec (as in a state that wants to cede from the Union). I noticed a sidebar discussion titled 'The Trans-Atlantic Divide Over Gun-n-Boobs', and well I had to click it.

I thought the poster made a valid point. America is obsessed with repressing sex, yet we openly embrace violence, alpha-male mentality, and the assorted 'macho' mannerisms. I know a lot of this must stem from the earliest foundation (and European colonization) was put together by a bunch of Puritans who though Europe was too decadent and the love appendage(s) are for procreation, not recreation.

Make love not war.
