Call me ignorant but in almost every source of media that features international affairs they always have to make fun of americans or just go something along the lines of "stupid americans and their wars!!!"

Im American btw, but my parents werent born in the states and its not like I make the decisions
so why is there so much prejudice against us?
This is just what the media has showed me and what im making out of it.
Well, CR what thinks you?

I could say the same thing as to why in American media... the French is the butt of their jokes.... ^^;
Many countries always have someone they make fun of it's a part of lfe and civil pride...

It's very interesting the way america works.... there are so many americans with different opinions... but the loudest and the most obnoxious ones are the ones that seem to be in the media spotlight... which makes us look bad. LOL... Damn I hate Nancy Grace, Limbaugh, O'Reilly, Pat Roberts, etc... It's true America is very outspoken and very opinionated...

We don't go around suicide bombing each other.... hoping to get a lot of virgins.... like Islamic Jihadist.
Nor do we supress media, internet, movies, etc... cause it makes the country look bad... like china.
Nor do we have a crazy dictator, who is superstitious, and thingks he is perfect... like North Korea.
Nor do we treat women like they were merchandise... like Saudi Arabia.

We just talk a lot... and sometimes the wrong people represent a small majority... That's what we call diversity. Probbably why Mexico keep sending people across the border to work here... instead of fixing the problems of their country... America is a big post of freedom and diversity. -.-

Who cares? Well if you looked into americas history you would see we are extremely hypocritical, lieing, and greedy but who cares? stop complaining and feel glad you live in a country a lot of people are envious of.

Yea. They thought that when you died and went to heaven you got a bunch of virgins. But they did a retranslation and it turns out that it says that when you go to heaven you get a bunch of raisins They used to be very expensive.

I thought that this was extremely funny.

Why? Maybe because the Americans own the rest of the world billions of dollars but refuse to pay up. Because America thinks she is the best in the world. Because America can tell the whole world to follow international rules, join the United Nations and World Trade Organisation. Yet America can disregard all the rules and continue with what she wants to do.

America can tell lies (ie about non-existent weapons of mass destruction in Iraq), and when the lies are exposed, America can just smile and walk away.

Oh and Americans feel that it's justified for them to attack other nations, but nobody can attack them.

edit: Americans also think they are very smart, but..

For my English paper yesterday, there was an comprehension passage which was written by an American. It had most of us in tears of laughter when we read about how he feels that the education in America is world-class. Seriously. That's why my 10 year old sister can solve a math question that 15 year old Americans can't solve.

I'm not really complaining, I was just pointing something out. But really I care about all of the bad stuff that happens in this counrty because 1 I live here and 2 every bit of it affects me.
Most people who are envious shouldn't be.... there's better places then this.

i don't hate america... but (and yes there is a but)
I find it annoying that with americans, history doesn't seem to be a great teacher. they just don't learn....

I actually pitty the poor americans and their so called freedom, because of the gouvenment, they're hated everywhere. Even though they seem to be the more evolved, more advanced, the just and the brave... balabla... They still use the same means to get what they want, it hasn't changed in over 300 years, -> If they don't think like you, and they're not scared of you - kill them!
Either way the american system is great, for them, I think it would be great country, hold dear to the world is the US gouv. were to stop trying to spread the ''freedom'' and mind their own business.... solve the problems inside before trying to get involved outside.

200 years ago a great dude called Black Hawk said that the americans had no honor, that they sent young men to be killed in wars that could be solve without the shed of blood.

cus they don't have the balls to attack the united states oh and america is a continent


Maybe the reason we're not paying is because we can't?
We don't think we're the best - right now especially.
Plus, only one person knew that the weapons in Iraq were a lie and that was Bush. Blaming an entire country for just one person is stupid.

But Bush is your leader. He was elected (for 2 terms). Based on my knowledge, a leader of a democratic nation is one who was elected by the people and is then given the power to represent the people.

Yes, the US of A can't pay up the money owned. That's why it had the ability to give out a 183 billion dollar economic stimulus package.
