How really sad that your disdain for America is so visible.

We, the people, can't be blamed for the policies of our nefarious leaders, although Americans sure have gotten lazy about protesting.

Still and all, hating America's people doesn't make much sense.

The computer you're typing on was invented in America. So was your cell phone. And your car. And your television set. And probably you're listening to American music.

Listen, friend. The guiding spiritual principle in the universe is that we are all one. We're your brothers and sisters. Until you realize that, and most people realize that, the world will continue on its horrible little way.


It's this kind of ignorance that gives American's a bad name...

Nearly all of those things were not invented by Americans. Only one that was the mobile phone. Car is French, then German (for combustion). Computer was British (Enigma), then French (first Personal Computer). TV was German.

And, I'm not sure if you're trying to say that American's invented music?? Did Bob Dole do that whilst taking a break from inventing the internet?

Well that seems pretty ignorant since Japan's Fukashima problem is killing the whole Pacific ocean as we speak. Those reactors are close to melting into the water table and will kill everyone on earth soon if something is not done about it.

Now, care to redo your OP??

While everyone sits around and cries about the big bad USA, they need to be screaming at Japan to find a way to stop THEIR environmental catastrophe that will be the death of everyone on this world in 20 years time.

No they also harassed another ship this week for no reason and I can say you have not paid your taxes to me as well but that does not make it right. LETS NOT FORGET HOW MANY U.S. MILITARY WERE KILLED BY IRANIAN TERRORIST IN IRAQ alone!!!!

I never said to bomb them, I said to teach them a lesson not to board innocent ships by loading one with HOGS that were strapped with suicide vest on. That is poetic justice!!!

EXACTLY!!! Almost EVERY problem in Africa and the Middle East stems from the artificial borders established under British colonialism. And yet the U.S. somehow is to blame for every disaster that occurs because people who hate each other were forced to form Nations. . .

that's why I'm a proud US tax payer: Go MIC (Military Industrial Complex), GO!


This is actually one of the best comments in this thread.
The billions and trillions spent on the military has done it's job.
The US is the biggest threat out there.

I just hope we can at some point go back to something like
"walking softly but carrying the biggest stick on the planet"

Ya know i was right there among the pro american posts until I hit a 6-7-8-9-... page rant between members regarding teeth, soccer and beer. I realized my efforts to stay abreast of the conversation grew null and void. None the less here is my highlight version of what I found interesting. some I may have left out being it was off topic but due to the 7 ++++++pages of silliness I guess I should at least remark on why i ignorantly thought at first that it wasn't relevant. my mistake. here are my favorite comments up until the off topic rants got too much.

"The USA is like a parent whose children see them as little more than a walking cash machine and a target for whining and complaint. Ultimately, when mommy and daddy have had enough and force the child to leave the nest and fare for themselves, the child inevitably recognizes they were whining about way too good a thing to have taken a crap on. “burdman30ott6

"More of a case the UK was the parent and after WW2 decided # it everyone hates us and its costs too much so not worth it and gave the role over to you guys to play parent.
If you pack the job in someone else will take the job and be just as hated if not more.
Like the UK when we were the parent your going to be hated whatever you do or don't do.
Though seeing China would be the one to play parent if the USA left, id rather you stay for now “crazyewok

"As far as the opinions of people on which country is the most dangerous to humanity, I say that's a ridiculous question. The people that answered that question should have considered how much of a danger they are to themselves, their friends, and family first, before they even considered such a notion. If everyone improved themselves, there would little harm against humanity to worry about."TarzanBeta

"Don't want and don't need the US" ALWAYS seems to refer only to the US physical or managerial presence inside said country needing aid. Amazing it is NEVER spoken in regards to America's money. I can't criticize that mental model too loudly, however, those countries practicing it very well may have learned it from the American welfare system... another collective which demands the bucks but screams and hollers over any actual presence of those the bucks are coming from. “burdman30ott6

"Being called The Great Satin is kind of silly.
Pajamas are made all over the world. “ Bezzer

Politicians are just a reflection of the people that voted for them.
So hating the politicians is akin to hating the population.
Heck, I do it, most everyone does it. Some are just more honest about it than others.
But to say that America is evil because of the politicians, but saying American people are all good, is like peeing on my head and telling me it's raining. also from bezzer

"a reply to: icewater
Ever think its the price they have to pay for dealing with us? On a world stage we aren't the avenging angels we try to pull off here at home. Other countries find we are an aggressive bullying country that loves war. Our history has done nothing to disprove this. If you had a relative that kept handing you money to help you,but then went and told you how to run your finances,your marriage,your kids,clean your house etc. you would get really sick of them and their help. It would end up in a huge fight. I'm not talking here about whether you would or not,I'm saying if you did. You would become resentful and angry at them for telling you how to do everything,and what you were allowed to do or not. We are not all bad,but there is too much meddling in other countries affairs that is causing huge resentment for us. This is what Russia has been trying to tell us and the world,that the US needs to mind their own business and let other countries conduct their own business.
We need to listen to other countries and get out of their business. It is our taxpayer money going over to other countries as we speak. Why should we bail out Ukraine? Think about it,Ukraine got in the mess its in because of greedy Oligarchs. This was not a "hey our crops failed and we can't feed people". This is a free for all grab of money that has been going on for years,and is STILL going on. Guess what? If I can't balance my check book,who bails me or you out? So why should we be throwing money at Ukraine? We shouldn't. Let the Oligarchs do it. They have been stealing from the people all these years.Its time for them to eat it now. The money we are sending isn't going to help their people,while the people found out there was no emergency food put away to feed them,their so called leader was out spending someone elses money on weapons. If you can't feed an army,they won't fight. This is but one example. We need to stop sending money to other countries. Let them learn to live within their means. If they can't feed their people,they shouldn't be buying weapons. Spend the money first on feeding the masses before trying to buy anything else.”by dimithae


"I can admit that militarily, we are pretty scary. However, we don't subjugate and treat our neighbors like they belong in concentration camps.”porteurDeMort


"We, the people, can't be blamed for the policies of our nefarious leaders, although Americans sure have gotten lazy about protesting. Still and all, hating America's people doesn't make much sense.

"The truth can stink, but so does manure. Such lovely things can come out from manure with moderate doses of the right ingredients, light, some love and attention. “bitsforbytes

then a three page break for an argument over teeth soccer and beer that turned into ten pages…REALLY? lol

Haman,
If you want to be taken seriously, do not cite wikipedia as a source. Wikipedia is for morons especially when it comes to political analysis.

Putin needs no help there, the guy does just fine on his own. I am amazed that the site so dedicated to *proving* that the U.S. killed its own people in 9/11 pretty much gives Putin, who UNDENIABLY has done just that in Russia, pretty much a free pass and actually seems to support him. SMH. . .

"free pass" is probably not so much correct imho.
"respect" would be better.

We're all here wondering whos really pulling the strings "in the west", while it seems that guy has the force of 143 million people plus standing behind him and mostly respecting his choices and direction, with the effort put into "herding" his people in the direction he thinks they should go (which seems to be good for them) resulting in general support for him.

While the truth behind many of the conversations here and elsewhere seems to be
www.dailykos.com...#


But for a defense contractor with ties to the federal government, Hunton & Williams, DOD, NSA, and the CIA - whose enemies are labor unions, progressive organizations, journalists, and progressive bloggers, a persona apparently goes far beyond creating a mere sockpuppet.

According to an embedded MS Word document found in one of the HBGary emails, it involves creating an army of sockpuppets, with sophisticated "persona management" software that allows a small team of only a few people to appear to be many, while keeping the personas from accidentally cross-contaminating each other. Then, to top it off, the team can actually automate some functions so one persona can appear to be an entire Brooks Brothers riot online.


But a "persona" is only as good as the people who wield it, and this poll seems to be suggesting they are having exactly the opposite effect intended.
