The population density is also similar to Europe but get outside the densely populated cities of the Northeast and your subway pass won't get you very far. ^_^

Outside the larger towns Southern Germany had little more public transportation than the US.

Shell sold excellent road maps with topographic contour lines, accurate and detailed enough to plan an invasion.
There were two of us who found we could go anywhere and never get lost. The other guy didn't even read German.

With all that ham, beer, and chocolate cake, who cares?

Ah. The area first colonised, hence the most civilised:-)
I expect they still have wagon trains in the midwest. Or they remember them at least.

No, idiot, the area with the densest people, like Europe.

We know you would expect such, moron.

Unlike Europeons, they're capable of remembering something, anyway.

Oh..that would be Northern Michigan, rather than the East Coast.

No, even the back-woods hicks of the UP are no match for their NE cousins. Evidence, Mayor Doomberg.

I kinda think NY and MA were settled a bit before, though they're still pretty unsettling places to live.

Nah...California is actually pretty nice in most places. Except the Leftwingers run it. The Central Valley is a very nice Red Zone. Hell...most of the state votes Red (conservative) except for 3-4 of the urban areas
Now California..has been explored and settled long before most of the eastern states. Hell..the Chinese used to come over and trade with the indians back nearly in the BC times.

The first white explorer to visit Michigan was the Frenchman Étienne Brûlé in 1620, who began his expedition from Quebec City on the orders of Samuel de Champlain and traveled as far as the Upper Peninsula. Afterward, the area became part of Louisiana, one of the large colonial provinces of New France. The first permanent European settlement in Michigan was founded in 1668 at Sault Ste. Marie by Jacques Marquette, a French missionary."
The ability of the early voyagers to use the Great Lakes and the discovery of copper and of course the massive amounts of harvestable trees sped up the influx of Europeans dramatically.
And then we have the Runestones...some of which may or may not be hoaxes.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kensington_Runestone 1362 AD
23] Another of the documents reprinted by the 19th century scholars was a scholarly attempt by Icelandic Bishop Gisli Oddsson, in 1637, to compile a history of the Arctic colonies. He dated the Greenlanders' fall away from Christianity to 1342, and claimed that they had turned instead to America. Supporters of a 14th century origin for the Kensington runestone argue that Knutson may therefore have travelled beyond Greenland to North America, in search of renegade Greenlanders, most of his expedition being killed in Minnesota and leaving just the eight voyagers to return to Norway.[24]
However, there is no evidence that the Knutson expedition ever set sail (the government of Norway went through considerable turmoil in 1355) and the information from Cnoyen as relayed by Mercator states specifically that the eight men who came to Norway in 1364 were not survivors of a recent expedition, but descended from the colonists who had settled the distant lands, generations earlier.[22] Also, those early 19th century books, which aroused a great deal of interest among Scandinavian Americans would have been available to a late 19th century hoaxer.
Hjalmar Holand had proposed that interbreeding with Norse survivors might explain the "blond" Indians among the Mandan on the Upper Missouri River,[25] but in a multidisciplinary study of the stone, anthropologist Alice Beck Kehoe dismissed, as "tangential" to the Runestone issue, this and other historical references suggesting pre-Columbian contacts with 'outsiders', such as the Hochunk (Winnebago) story about an ancestral hero "Red Horn" and his encounter with "red-haired giants".[26]

That will ruin the best of places. Italy, Greece, California, all the same.

Still owned by the leftists.

That's true of the entire country. The problem is that those few pinko areas have too many takers forcing the makers elsewhere to support them.

Well you sound like harry, now, paleface....
