The purpose the thread was to take a little jab at all those who write posts that start out:

Arent you Americans extremely angry?
When will the US wake up?
When do think the US went tits up?

etc.



And who do these threads come from? Hell, most of those come from, um.......... wait for it.............. AMERICANS. Your Rep/Dem #. You guys need to get your house in order before throwing the gauntlet down.


I've noticed that in reply to those anti-US threads. There is a fairly even smattering of Americans agreeing with the OP, and those replying aggressively.


See? Even you see it.


So far I've seen nothing from non-US citizens in this thread except..."See this is why we hate you" or variations on that theme.

Just what I thought. And yes, I got the bite I wanted.


Well DUH. You knew what you were going to get when you posted it. It's not proving anything to anyone that is reading this other than you posted crap and you KNEW you were posting crap and it was handed back to you on a slice of rye.


Seems some of us can give better than they take.


That's a given, you definetly gave it out BUT you took it DRY.

Perhaps those who constantly attack the US are trying to work out some internal embarassment issues?


I think that is the reason for about 90% of their anti-american threads on here.

Ok, you all need to stop for a minute and think about what darkbluesky is saying. Right now at the top of my screen it says these are the "hot" topics:

1. Bush Should be Tried! - I guess not agreeing with someone is akin to "warcrimes" here on ATS?

2. Int'l Bankers Destroying USA

3. USA Takeover?

That is 3 out of 5 of the "hot topic" threads on this board, do you see a pattern here?

I think the American members of this board tolerate alot of slander from threads like this. I would like to see an end to it. Everyone likes to point their finger at the US and say, "thats the bad guy!" Well, we arent alone.

Here's one more thing I'd like to say regarding this national adversarial tone. I have travelled the world extensively and have freinds in all the countries mentioned in this post. I've never had a single malevolent thought toward the "people" of a country as a whole, and I still don't. But, the more time I spend on this forum, and the more comments I read like.....


You Americans have to relise that this kind of post is exectly why people around the world carry feelings of "hate" for your kind.


.....the closer I get to disliking all (fill in the nationality).

YOUR KIND???? Are you kidding?

I still love Canada and most of it's people......excluding JRA obviously.

I'm surprised by your attitude and generalization.


Hope you're just having a bad day.

Intrepid, I think you're wrong. Those three were authored by UK and NZ folks. And I dont uinderstand the R/D reference.

Maybe NOT posting inflamitory threads would cut down on your getting "closer to disliking" certain people. As you said:

Just saying.

That's interesting, because I sometimes feel the same way. Except it's Americans I start lumping together. That's when I know it's time to take a bit of an ATS vacation. It helps.

See, we're not so different after all.

Oh know you did not just attack another member of this forum and violated the T&C of the site?

Please avoid discussing other members and discuss the topic.

And besides, I called him friend!

As an Australian, I am not the slightest bit embarrassed about the amount of aid we give and humanitarian activity we are part of.

An important fact to remember in regard to Australian's contribution...

Our entire population is only 20.something million (equal to perhas New York City).

Soooooooo.......I think we can hold our heads up and be counted without shame

The explanation is that conservatives expect the government not to give out public support, and the people on the left expect it to come from the government.


You are 100% right. Liberals expect it to come from the government only after rob me blind by forcefully taking my hard earned money by force through taxation. Its called government sanctioned redistribution of wealth.

He called your thread retarded. That's within the Terms and Conditions. He was referring to an object, which was you thread.

I'm not even going to discuss your second comment.


And MooneyBravo: There's a forum called politics.abovetopsecret.com where you can do your political bickering.

As a matter of fact, this thread to me seems not to be conspiracy related, but politically related and belongs to PTS. Or show me otherwise if I'm wrong.

I attacked your idea (thread), not you. I'll admit that using the word retarded was a bit strong, but things like that happen when you provoke people by purposely creating an inflammatory thread.

The current average American's attitude is very reminicent of the attitude of your Average British subject during the height of the British Empire. The British were despised by almost everyone in the world of the day. The big difference is the Americans only think they have an empire, they never bothered to ask how anyone else felt. The only reason the Americans are where they are today is that they have a habbit of declaring war on people and raping their economy. Oh and by the way, Australia has a national debt of $0. We did this through hard work and sacrifice, not illegal wars or police actions yet we remain relatively humble and value each life as equally important whether they be US citizens or Mexicans.

Thanks

My comments are my own and no reflection of the stance of ATS.

This thread might be considered "retarded" by some, they would be wrong. Even if they said it was "retarded", no one pointed a finger at you as this being "retarded". See it as you will though. You'll sleep better that way.

This thread IS "Martyr Bait". "Oh my poor country".

I wouldn't be sad to see some Americans putting this abortion of a thread to bed though. It's only purpose was to inflame and incite anomousity towards others.

Does church tithes count? If so I'm sure the evengelical middle americans make up most of the money.

Also it is important to note that many more charitable organizations can thrive in america, because of all the guilt-ridden rich people being pressured to give back. I don't know. I'll stick to the "each person is judged for their own actions."

Chill with the YOU americans. I am not represented by ignorance unless it be my own.


Ummm... I second that. I could say the same thing about how you types of people lump all Americans into the same warmongering, cheesburger eating, obese, ignorant lump...

peace
