Why are people on here so conspicuously Anti-Luxembourg?

I don't get it, folks. This is really disappointing.

This complete disdain, and conspicuous, astounding ignoring

- we can only hear the crickets, for La Moselle's sake! -

of this otherwise critically geo-politically important little country :

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Luxembourg

is just... mind-boggling in this 21st century. NOT A SINGLE post in 6 years about the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg!

SIX freaking years with... Que Dalle! Nada! Zip! Nothing about it!

Are you Luxembourging-kidding me? What the hell is wrong with you people?!

Luxembourg Banking

I would bet it's the banking. Check out the 2009 film, "The International", with Clive Owen and Naomi Watts.

Bank of Credit and Commerce International (BCCI) was based in Luxembourg. It loaned money to Saddam Hussein and Manuel Noriega among other illicit individuals. The bank led to financial scandals in the 1980s. Not good for Luxembourg.

Are you suggesting a massive anti-"Luxembourgois" faction has taken over the DP?

Shockingly unacceptable intolerance.

Somebody ban this troll

Everybody knows that Luxembourg = 12+21+24+5+13+21+5+21+7 = 129

12/9 = Field Marshal Edmund Allenby captures Jerusalem in 1917, a key moment in Zionism.

You win some, you Luxem...

Ever since they granted asylum to Paul Krugman, they reinforced a long-standing stereotype that nation-states that start with L is for losers. Liberia, Libya, Liechtenstein... need I go on?

Yet it seems quite fitting that the sort of asylum granted to Krugman by Luxembourg was "mental", so to speak. Perhaps we can credit them as a compassionate nation though it must be said that ill-advised decisions like this will never lift their worldwide prestige above the bottom rung of the totem pole.

Ask Obama why he's not doing more

to secure out nation's critical borders with LUXEMBOURG?

ANSWER THAT ONE YOU FASHION PLATE!

There is nothing strange about having a bar of soap in your right pocket, it's just what's happening.

because of obama

Hamas gets a passed. And Israel gets the blame. Even though obama supports The muslim brotherhood. And Hamas is part of the muslim brotherhood. Why does obama care for luxembourg? Nope. obama is busy with the muslims. And the people of America is helping out obama being anti-Israel. Now now. nothing going on here. Keep the support of obama going. And maybe hillary will become next in line.

did you neg yourself on that one?

that's become quite fasionable lately. Bill3 actually comes on chat asking for downvotes. It's become something of a badge of malor.

There is nothing strange about having a bar of soap in your right pocket, it's just what's happening.

No.

I'm not like Bill3. But it is interesting to see why they down voted me. Likely to be a shill.

At least a coward

Not ot say not a shill, either. But clearly cowardice (at least of the intellectual variety) includes downvoting sans explanation in the absence of egregious and obvious argumentum ad hominem.

The Duchy of Luxembourg ball pen is mightier than the sword.

Luxembourg. Putting the ball in ballpoint pens. World's premier manufacture of this essential item to worldly power.

If you write with a ballpoint pen, there is a very good chance that the ball at its tip was made in Luxembourg. Hard materials manufacturer Ceratizit ®turns out 12 billion such balls every year. This represents 40 to 45 % of global ball baring production for ball pint pens.

PS: If you don't make the connection between your ball point pens and these the Luxembourg saxophone players, it is your loss.

Hint: Ceratizit.

"WHAT FOR"

Luxenstein & Lichtembourg are just cheap knockoffs of Grand Fenwick. (But they're all Andorrable!)

Am I right? Huh? I'm right aren't I?

You and Smudge want Liechtenstein all to yourselves. You're trying to keep the rest of us out. You're trying to get all the rest of us to go to Luxembourg, and you and Smudge'll be kickin' back in Liechtenstein drinkin' all the Prinzenbräu and laughing your asses off watchin' us all through your telescope mouthing "Where the hell are Cyril and Smudge!" while we run around Luxembourg like headless chickens.

I've had enough

Luxembourg haters and deniers must be banned from the Daily Paul before Nystrom creates another friction faction.

It's been a historic joke of mine Cyril, who else does it?

It's something I do when Americans say "I hate blacks" or "I hate Mexicans" etc, I'll start ragging on Luxembourgians.

OK the thing is that most Americans don't know that Luxembourg even exists and then I have to explain to them that Luxembourg is this tiny duchy someplace in a storyland called EuroDisney or something...

and they end up looking at me all funny and wondering what my problem is.

And that's my revenge because for that moment at least they get to feel like I do.
