Rude loud American versus:

Sweaty Italian with zero regard for personal space- I'll take the American

Saudi Arabia where women are pushed to the back of the line, many are wealthy but children sell sticks of gum at every public gathering place to survive-America

Israel where my tour guide needs to be strapped and I have to make sure and stay out of the mine fields-America

Iceland where there is a hot chick behind ever tree (Check the foilage maps) and oh yeah they are bankrupt-America

Then I have never been to India.

I never said our arrogance was undue - we are that way because we're the shit. I'll take America over any other place to live in the world. Fuck 'em if they can't take a joke.

I'm just saying it's not inaccurate to call us jerks as a stereotype. Because in my personal experience we certainly are. We're still a young country that has not learned to show the world our greatness with as much class as we should.

Right on.

The world is just a very brutal and assholish place. That's just the way it is on earth.

We enjoy the standard of living that affords us to be compassioniate in the first place, under those ground rules.

Just be thankful there are people that have been and are doing the assholish acts for you, so we can sit back and enjoy a piece of chocolate and microwave bbq rib sandwich while surfing the net in climate controlled rooms with comfortable clothes on our backs. If you want that, you have to break a few eggs. That's the rules of nature. No give without take.

When you hate America, you hate yourself.

I don't hate this country, I hate the people that live in it that are driving us away from success and make us look like failures.

Yes, the government has a huge part in driving this country into the ground, but it's also stuff like news outlets (Fox News), people that force their beliefs on others (religious nuts) and our holier than thou culture.

Fox News??????? :lol:

Go watch Olberman, Matthews and their ilk some time.

8 or 9 left wing channels and Fox. Fair I guess since even the 8 or 9 combined dont have the viewership. TG for Fox or all we would have is Obama hugggers.

Ill agree about the religious nuts and the rest.
