Pass ENDA [Employment Non-Discrimination Act] now.

Wow! I didn't know that! Geez, I'm really going to have to get back to work on getting those emigration papers together. The Netherlands is looking better and better every day.

It really isn't... its Muslim population is incredibly segregated, and far more oppressed than in the US. The government even proposed a burqa ban at one point, ostensibly on the grounds that burqas make it easy to hide bombs...

It's sad, but the US seems to welcome immigrants, especially Muslim ones, more than any European country.
