Most places are like this, it's not america alone, In the UK there are Good guys and there are bad guys, just because you meet the bad ones, dont condemm the whole country.
I think this is a troll thread to stirr things up, and distract from matters in hand, dont lower yourselves.

personally, i blame liverpool, if it hadn't been for liverpool we wouldn't have had the beatles, which would have meant we wouldn't have had john lennon, which would mean he never would have been shot which would have meant mark chatman never would have been mind controlled by the CIA which would have meant that carl rove wouldn't have had access to the mind controls of gwb which would have meant that in the last 8 years drug legalisation would have went ahead as planned in the US instead of this silly old war on terrorism which would have made it the holiday of choice for those in the know and the coolest place on earth.
the only solution is to nuke liverpool.

I am sorry that you find Americans rude. But perhaps you didn't come far enough south. Here in Arkansas, we still say "please," "thank you," "Yes Sir," and "No Ma'am." We respect our elders, love our wives, and we try to be nice to strangers. Of course, when someone from New York, Boston, or one of those states comes here and attempts to take on our traditions and change them, we have a stock answer. "We don't give a damn how ya'll do it up north."
However, if you are a visitor from another country, we patiently explain our traditions and most of us will ask you about your country, and the way you do things.
I have had many friends from England and Germany, and have learned a great many things from them. I have had many encounters with people from Canada, and have found them to be wonderful people, once I get it through their heads that 1) I don't like hockey. 2)I don't want to like hockey. 3) I don't ice skate because it doesn't get that cold where I live, and there are no indoor rinks where I live, and 4) I don't WANT to learn to ice skate. lol
I hope your future encounters are better, but if their not, try visiting us in the south. We'll feed you good, and when you leave you'll hear us say "Ya'll come back now, you hear?"
