mmm...

sometimes you hear them talking and you get the impression they think the US are the whole world and there is nothing else or only savages outside...

at least, now they only think they are the whole continent...

but still, I wonder how the canadians, mexicans and the whole of Southamerica think about that...

It's also nice to see how they bring peace and freedom to the world...



and now the US have a black president and everything is good!!

Seriously. I go on here and people are like "AMERICA IS SO AWFUL. WHY DOES IT EXIST? IT SHOULD BLOW UP. B[" (They're not like that literally. For the most part.)

And I'm just wondering why people are like that. I mean... I personally think it's kind of immature. Hating an entire country and calling everything that comes out of it awful rip offs is just... Idek. It bothers me.

So, what're your reasons if you do? And if you don't, why do you think some people do?

(I am going to rage like the fist of the north star over here but I'll try to shut up and let everyone state their opinions.)


oh, don't stop the threads.i have a big preference for your threads over the random ones. Well, do you personally like America?

I like America. Its extremely easy to go from a zero to a doctor. Education opportunities are everywhere.You can easily get into those good schools like Brown university, even if you got a B / C average in high school.

Because of their politics. Starting wars in foreign countries. Try to be like super power


Well, the word superpower is in fact given to the mightiest nation in the world, And during the industrial revolution, when military, and industrialization was at its highest. America was considered by all other nations as the first industrial and military superpower of the 19th -20th century.

So they aren't really trying rather than they just are. But really it's not like we start wars, they are interventions on already standing wars.


Like I said. the US should not intervene in foreign countries affairs especially in Middle East. We were pushed into going to war. For the super power, the U.S. owned numerous of productions in foreign countries like in China. I heard that China has good economies. The American like jealous b/c they want to be number one in the economy.


The chinese only have a good economy because the government is purposfully letting the industry leaders choke the citizens and give them terrible pay and bad to no benefits. The overall happiness of the populace is grim, it is not a good place to be. Production rate increase = less rest, and less humane. The americans are in fact benefitting from this with our cheap costs in products in comparison. But at the same time america is sinking into debt with the chinese.

Why would anyone hate America? Despite the heat, I like living here.
Posted 9/16/09
Nahh, I love America.

Why:
- It's a major trade partner with the country I'm in.
- It's original. It creates their own TV shows and such.
- Most people are really nice.

Yeah I know. Forget about the economy, what about the war? What do u have to say about this? I'm certainly not the only one who think American's involvement in foreign countries is bad.

Why should anybody hate a whole continent?


Wow, your awesome at geography...

On topic,
This is like saying 'Why do people hate cats so much?' I guess everyone has their reasons and beliefs and what not. There isn't anything in this world that some body doesn't hate...except cookies.

Are you talking about USA or the whole continent?
I mean you can't hate a continent when you haven't visited all of the countries. I personally love the country in where I live, and it's in America. People are gentle, nature is wonderful, the beaches are awesome... it's just that a lot of things are expensive xD
You can't say heat here in America suck just because in one country heat do suck, when here in America is the country with the best climate in the world, proved by National Geographic

Well, I hate stinkin hippies if that's what you mean. I hate war like everyone "should", but I don't agree with situations like how we where forced out of vietnam because of the hippy protests that caused hundreds of thousands of lives to be in vain, while the war was on the verge of ending. I hate war, but at the same time, I love our freedoms enough to fight for them if the reason isn't stupid or unclear. You never know when who you are fighting for is the more impure and less morale in purpose.

I still call BS on the people who think the US invaded iraq for oil though. Prices of oil haven't changed for shit. If we had one of the biggest oil producing lands and their oil, you'd think we'd he have a huge drop. Instead, iraq is now a democracy keeping out extremists. This isn't even a war anymore.

The war in iraq ended after the first couple of years. Now it's just a "Hold the fort under with new gvt as anyone stupid enough to attack will get killed". Overall, The world is a better place without saddam. Either way, no public opinion is 100%, afterall, EVERY citizen in this world is spoon fed 40% fact, 60% pure bullshit, lies, or patriotic sounding excuses to cover of real reasons for doing things. AKA propoganda. And everyone has it. EVERYONE

I still support my country by not protesting wars because it is better to be safer than sorry. Do you want to screw over your own country when you don't have the whole picture? I'd rather help "My country", when I don't have the full picture than possibly attribute to something that gets us anihilated because I didn't understand things clearly. Watch forest gump, I love the vietnam example they have in that movie.

Fact is, war will never end, it will always exist. The best you can do is hope to create long periods of peace that you can live happily without the worry of death from every corner. Hell, whenever I hear a really loud military plane fly over my house I keep hoping I don't get nuked. That's never been a problem for me. Now? You never know.
