Actually, they don't except you behave like a complete idiot. For example wearing flip flops or similar sandals, shorts and a tank top to cafés where people usually are very nicely clothed, and start talking in english very loudly, assuming that the French will understand you if you just talk loudly enough. This has nothing to do with which country you are from, just with behavior.
I can recommend David Sedaris' accounts of Americans in Paris to get an idea.

some more bumperstickers & buy t-shirts. The local news came in and it was just some jerk with a camera and he was pretty flip with the lady he was talking to, like do democratics really think they stand a chance this year in Oklahoma. Well like I said this is effing Oklahoma and GW Bush has like a 70% approval rating. Of course we also have education 48th in the nation, the second highest rate of type 2 diabetes, highest rate of child abuse in the nation, right to work, low wages, bad health insurance meth labs and an awesome rate of obesity, so why would you want to change ?
It is so refreshing to see another Oklahoman who's not a right wing nut job! My husband and I were just discussing how we only know a handful of democrats in our area. It's so depressing!!

My cousin an art student did a tour in Europe back in the 70's and she was horrified cause an American Woman was sitting on the curb in Paris and crying cause there was no McDonalds...they hadn't invaded France yet.

In the 90's I worked with a vietnamese lady who had relatives in Paris as France took a lot of Vietnamese too. She went on vacation and had someone take some pictures of all the family with the Eiffel Tower in the background. Right behind them there was this huge fat family, pale and the mom was in bike shorts. I asked her Americans? She said yeah, how did you know? I just said "How could you not?"

Who would wanna pass up the gourmet delicacies at McDonalds for all those dreary sidewalk cafes and nice little restaurants in Paris?

I would not eat at McDonalds even if someone paid me to eat there. Can't even remember the last time I ate in a McDonalds. Someone going to Paris to eat at a McDonalds should do themselves a favor and save a lot of money & time and visit their mall foodcourt for vacation.

Sunshine2103 & Melmom...
Hey..
Ahhh living in Oklahoma, How proud are you of our Senator Inhofe? Geez what a Tool. His motto is "As long as good ole boys drive pick-ups with rifle racks, he'll keep getting elected", I was told that by a republican that knows him. I saw him once, he is a little short man..yeh another little man trying to overcompensate. I saw his son and daughter-in-law in a target store once. Please what a yuppie stepford couple. She had a visor that matched her tennis shoes.

Election Projection is predicting Dems to gain 6 seats in the Senate and 11 in the house.
And as of today, predicts a 278-260 in favor of Democrats in the Presidential race.

Damn, OK has been one of the perennial Red States. AZ which is typically a red state, voted Blue in 1996 for Clinton. But we've had a pretty strong and popular Democratic governor and the mayor of Phx is democrat as well. Given the transient population and hispanic vote in AZ, would be nice to see Dems sweep AZ this time ( still a distant possibility)

I was completely turned off by McD's and other fast food joints after seeing all that chemical crap they use to preserve food. I avoid processed food in fast food joints like the plague.
I'd eat in a fast food place only if they use fresh ingredients. Some of my favorites are Baja Fresh, Rubios, Chipotle et al. They seem to use fresh stuff which is not processed with preservatives.
I usually like all the mom and pop ethnic food places. They have the best food. I am a huge fan of ethnic food and love to try all the different flavors of the world.

Ooo I love Chipotle. Their burritos can be pretty calorie loaded if you use all the condiments. But pretty tasty. I eat there atleast 3 times a week
