Not sure exactly how to play this, but here's what I'm thinking:

Land of the free, home of the brave is now land of the slaves, home of the cowards.

Each and Every American blames someone else for their personal problems and Americans problems too, so I guess I'll paraphrase Bush and say:

"Responsibleless", (but with authority).

It is an adjecverb

Really ..?? where are the slaves and the Cowards ?? People are "freeer" than ever to do whatever heck they want, even if that is NOTHING or simply spend days in a row on their Computers whinning about how bad the Country and the President are.

Everytime there is a problem in the world, America is the first they all come for Help... Where are the cowards...maybe you speak just for yourself, if that is so...I would probably agree.

I'm not even American and that statement makes me



Move to a better country if you can find one...lol

" Whinningism " comes to mind

Well, I invite you to come to America. There I'll present you with a copy of the Constitution and a copy of the Patriot Act. You'll see what's so scary.

As you pointed out you're not even an American, so you're hardly qualified to talk. We're "land of the free" IN NAME ONLY.

Americans could be percieved as being slaves to the distractions in their society that blinds them from the fact that they could only justifiably hate someone if they are afraid that that someone is going to take something or someone they love away from them, thus becoming a slave to their own fears that they are too cowardly to face on the fundamental level of individualistic perception.

I AM in America... I'm not American, but I live in the USA.. and i dont see what makes ou "un-free"...?? What exactly do you mean by "Freedom" ?

Arent people in the SUA, free to work where they want, study where they want, marry whom they want, sue, kill, rape, steal, abort, donate, sell, buy... do whatever and whomever they want ?

I dont understand where is the Lack of freedom... so if you could explain it would be appreciated.

I guess that can be applied to just about anyone and every citizen of any country in the world ? no just America and Americans.

I don't know. I have not met every citizen of every country in the world, just all Americans.

Amazing and The Greatest


This thread is a cheap shot at a country. It was clearly intended as a "clever" way to start a debate (read: bash fest) about the USA.

I consider this thread a deliberate attack on my country and its citizens.

If you want to knock a country, at least go find some real news to report on, rather than just outright have a contest on who can have the most clever insult to an entire nation.
