Butthurt Euro Turds that never went to the Moon?

hahahaha - this is whats meant by uneducated knee jerk reaction from an American

So do tell us of all those great advances that the US created without some European help.

Hint: Wernher von Braun was European ( hint rockets hint moon )

and theres more.....

The Ugly American

Authors William Lederer was an American author and captain in the U.S. Navy who served as special assistant to the commander in chief of US forces in the Pacific and Asian theater. Eugene Burdick was an American political scientist, novelist, and non-fiction writer, and served in the Navy during World War II. The two met in the buildup to the War in Vietnam.[2]

The authors were disillusioned with the style and substance of U.S. diplomatic efforts in Southeast Asia.

Triggered yo ass just fine.

Seems to have jerked that knee right from under you.

Loud, rude, obnoxious, arrogant, condescending. The Ugly American.

Where do you think that term came from?

Butthurt Euro Turds that never went to the Moon?

When everyone thinks the same thing about you, it's not them its you.

Oh and the USA never sent men to the moon either, so you have that in common with everyone else.

Where you fail to understand is America's couldn't gaf what some washed up euro turd countrymen think.

Lol we didn't go to the moon?

You on some serious hater # get checked.

Your European-Inferiority complex is out of control.

Fortunately for you, one day the boomers will be dead! No more Republicans, no more far right. Just hang in there a bit longer and all your dreams will come true.

I have been surprised in the last 6-18 months how many young people are recognizing the value in traditional-minded thought and values. Maybe it's just the people in my orbit, but I know lots of Millennials and Gen Z's that are turned off by the Socialism rhetoric. I also know a lot of them are appalled by the leftist push for abortion-on-demand. Lazy and stupid doesn't describe all of them, thank gawd!

Narcissistic ? Unstable? Please explain in your own words as to how you came to that conclusion. It is my suspicion you have been listening to mainstream media and lack enough real knowledge to critically think.

In all those years you worked and paid into Medicare and Social Security you are willing to let illegals come to this country and get free medical, housing and schooling without having paid anything in. If so you are a fool. Gullible.

President Trump has done nothing to warrant your assumption. He has put Americans first. He is getting rid of bad trade deals procured by bad Presidents. Is questioning the Federal Reserve. Trying to stop the invasion on our southern border. Has encouraged business to return to their country to provide jobs. The economy is improved over the last eight years of a dismal Communist President, the black Prince of Hope and Change.

Do some research and don't go to Fact Check or Snopes they are leftist run sites. Go to many sites dig dig dig. You will find out many truths and ones that will lead you to know President Trump is fighting the good fight by attacking corruption in government.

As time fades with the demand of pace that is in this day and age "communicating" with so many people in such a broad scale bluntness is in demand as we have to limit the speech to share oppurtunity in public spaces.

You cant possibly begin to understand the nuances in life that make them build their rationale through the internet. People spend whole lifetimes learning themselves, and the people in and out of their circle more or less the people they have little contact with.

Should people be more civil, absolutely but you have to understand with modern tech people are meshing entertainment and politics.

Think about before when people read a newspaper, people had a system. They used to get their paper and do the same things while reading it. At that point the only stupidity they could have encountered was in their home, something they could personally take care of. They had time to digest the news before they spoke of it.

Think about when people read the news or post on social media now. That is supposed to be their break from stupidity, their personal freedom. It could be at any time and they could have all sorts of things effecting them at that moment, this obviously hadsthe ability to change reactions.

Thats an interesting observation and it greatly contradicts the MSM narrative about Millenials views. Maybe its geography? Meaning, perhaps you live in fly-over-country while the MSM is reporting from their experience with Millenials in the Urban areas on the Coasts?

Sadly, while the youngsters you encounter may cling to and cherish more traditional values, it may simply not matter. In a world where reality is contrived and controlled by the Leftist MSM, it may be the case that they will steer the outcome ever leftward all the while ignoring the more traditional youth.

I see another dynamic at work in the MSM narrative is rapidly developing and it follows on from the language of the Left to the effect that the US is a nation of immigrants. The corrolary is that people, especially those not a member of a victim class, who are NOT immigrants are inherently relegated to second class citizenship worthy only of marginalization at the exspense of the more clearly entitled immigrants and members of victim classes. Thus we see Joe Biden being marginalized as an inappropriate candidate for a nation of immigrants and victims in favor of Kamala Harris who is both a female and a POC, making her a member of two victim classes.

If this narrative takes hold in a big way in the reality contrived by the MSM, people who are citizens by virtue of having been born in the US and who are NOT members of a victim class may well find themselves permanently relegated to the back of the bus, out of sight and unheard.

Hilary Clinton and Barack Osama are untouchable.

No matter the charges and the evidence, nothing will ever happen.

The country went to hell long before this president. It is only getting worse as time goes on.

The patriot act is the very opposite of what a patriot would tolerate yet no one cares now. Trickle down economics before that. Secret wars waged by proxies, actual wars waged for profit of the MIC, the fed, lobbyists, and a public that stands by letting it all happen.
We care... but did you notice how in the last 8 years before Trump, it was never eliminated ? I would love to see the mighty pen overturn it... but I’m still good with at least fighting the bad trade deals and the radical socialism for now.

You're right to fear a civil war. I'm very close to being on board with one. These thugs running around in their masks, assaulting people and basically perpetuating chemical attacks on american citizens need to be stopped. If the cops won't do it, american citizens will. It's only a matter of time.

There is only one way to prevent a civil war. The left needs some law enforcement, badly. ANTIFA runs wild, assaulting and attacking people with little to no consequences. We have a deep state, democrat run, coup that's been uncovered and not a single person has seen the inside of a court room. We have hillary's email scandal, where again not a single person saw a charge. We have governors of democrat cities, condoning violence and property destruction, "we made room for them to destroy" remember? We have congressmen and senators using the absurdity of our legal system as a weapon against their opposition. We have the left funding an invasion of our country from central america. We have the left pandering to illegals for votes (don't play stupid, that's obviously what they're doing). We have big tech breaking the rules that gives them immunity against lawsuits. We have mass censorship of conservative ideas.

As long as these double standards exist, the risk of a civil war is extreme. The unfortunate part is that we let it get so extremely unbalanced that an attempt to balance it out also risks civil war. As Thomas Sowell said: "When someone gets used to preferential treatment, equality feels like discrimination."

I got your solution right here OP.

I made this for the last U.S election but it still works for the next one. And at this rate all future elections until the end of time.

It's going the way it has been going because the silent majority won't get off their arses and change it.
You let the squeaky wheels make noise who you think is going to get heard?

The silent poster on a internet forum or the person making a song and dance in public and getting in the media?

You want to make your country great again? Not just pretend, but for real?
Then go make it great. Stop relying on these damn self serving rich people who time and time again fail to deliver to do it for you.

Your vote DOES NOT matter. Realise that and change that.

Or do nothing and just let those elected who allowed things to get this way to keep doing the same thing over and over and expect a different result.

I always thought in a REAL democracy the majority could throw out those they employed with the help of their other employees the military and police.
Can you do that? Will the military and cops help you deal with enemies both foreign and DOMESTIC?

Things are getting worse in the U.S simply because the only people getting off their butts and taking to the streets IS THE U.S's WORST.

Maybe that 50% who voted for noone last election can get together and have a chat to the remaining 2x 25% that want these out of touch private school old fart drop kicks in power.

Seriously when was 25% a majority Vs. 50%

That's not the math I learned in school.

But fact is impotently crying online aint going to change it.

All those amendments and constitutions. When you folks going to start using them?
Or at the least start AMENDING them. Because you know. It's 2019 and amendments are for amending.

It's not just the U.S either. We can apply it to so many, if not all Western countries. Even my own.
We've allowed ourselves to be socially engineered to a tee.
