think they act in the worst possible way
whit alot of things.!
but not all of them are like that
i know perfectly
just answering the question

but like I say Not all of the are bad people



well.... thats what im saying, what if ur hispanic american? im pretty sure, by my experience living in southern california that by being exposed to so much culture most of the younger pop are being open 2 different cultures of people.
Im hispanic, my parents come from guatemala, i was born in the united states, i have different points of view.
Feeling superior 2 others is just immoral and unjustified, were all human beings~~


Im mexican but I dont live in united states (afotunadamente)
But actually live very close in tijuana
(Border EU) somethims i cross the border
. and i have been treatly sometimes
In a way lower by the americans
and that really piises me off.
they think that because im mexican i dont know
what are they talkin about
(that i do not understand english)

because the somethin like (pff.. mexicans)
or something like that
and i hate it , that why i dont like americans

omfg im 17 wtf am i supposed 2 do???


1- learn (a lot of history, economics.....)
2- stop blaming or fing excuses!
3- spead the word
4- letter, pettition, go in the streets..... help the people that are willing to give the lives for the cause you find the most important.

or should I put 2 before 1... yes...
When you stop finding excuses, you learn better.

My country has done plenty of bad, a lot, I know that, plenty of injustices has yet to be repared.... so I'm in no position to give lecture on the behalf of an entire country, but the fact remains, Canada is not hated....

Trust me...People have already protested Bush and the U.S. government already, on quite a few occasions. A petition is pretty stupid at this point anyway, the next president will be elected soon. What's the point of going out and protesting now if things are definitely gonna change?

I think this topic hits a little too close to heart if you know what i mean. It's good to voice your own opinons in certain forums but this one could really piss someone off, therefore i think it should be locked.

i'm probably going to regret this..but what the hell.
i'm American. and proud of it.
yes i admit our country has faults,
but please tell me what country doesn't.
i admit we pretty much have a...not so good leader at the moment,
but tell me, hasn't every country had a share of bad leaders?
at least one?
we may end up going to war,
sometimes for really really stupid, unexplainable reasons.
but most of the time we're just helping out our allies.
we may not be up to compete with students from other countries in terms of high school education,
but when it comes down to universities and colleges.
we have the best.
and yes.
the usa is in great debt.
but that's probably because we spend so much for defense,
so things like 911 don't happen again.
of course there are other reasons as well.
so i'm just saying.
to those people who think that the usa is shit.
take a look at your own country.
i bet it isn't perfect either.

and no i don't mean any offense, i'm not calling down any other country,
i'm just defending my own.

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.


We owe the rest of the world billions? Yes, we might owe countries money... but, if I recall the US has also provided many countries of the world financial aid totalling trillions... even if we don't have to. I still don't understand how we keep on giving financial AID to other countries when we are in a recession. But, if we don't then the other countries would suffer... cause of lack of assitance.

I have yet to see a country or it's leader ever not caught in a lie... Saying a country that does not lie... is like saying a government devoid of corruption... But, I still cringe at the Iraq affair.... Many americans were duped into it... and hopefully will remember the cost and price they had to pay because of our stupidity... not voting republican EVER! ((Especially when a republicans don't think water boarding is torture))

I won't say AMERICA is smart... I'm stupid as a chimp... but I have to say, America has given the world many many innovations and technology the world is enjoying right now. I never think we are smart... but, I'll be damned if we don't have a lot of pride for the country... I mean look at the ammount of illegal and legal immigrants coming to the US and the amount of citizens defecting to other countries. ^^; That make me prideful... but not smart.

As for comparing your 10 year old sister to a 15 year old American... That's like me compairing a 10 year old american kid with a PHD to you... Also not sure if you checked but the US is Ranked 15 on Literacy Rate... while Singapore is ranked 85!
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countries_by_literacy_rate

Don't want to debate... but Civil Pride made me want to show you this...

I do hope for you it's gonna change.....and for my sake too... The point remains, I find your political system quite good, and at this point youre lucky you can act on it, you can vote and protest, I can't, and still I have to pay the price of almost every decision taken by the gouv. in witch I have no say.

Powerfull countries will be hated, because of that very reason

seems like a lot of people here care a whole lot about america, i would even go so far as to say that they (claim to)know just as much if not more about america than their own countries. So in all honesty i have to wonder why anyone even cares.

Which leads me up to my answer to this post: who cares?

America and Israel are the terrorists of the world. With consumption and the perception of power, security has never felt better. Yet we are all haunted by the specter of capitalism and as that as it may at least I'm not Canadian.
