- I hate that the black culture ridicules successful African-Americans unless they're an athlete or entertainer.
- I hate that today's youth recognize only style & NOT substance.

I HATE PEOPLE THAT FAIL TO REALIZE THAT DESPITE ALL OF THIS, THEY STILL LIVE IN THE MOST FREE, MOST COMPASSIONATE, BEST COUNTRY ON EARTH.



This person is a republican.

Now back to my list b/c I have to add one more thing.

What does the Colonel hate about America?

1) Republicans (as if you didn't know)
2) The fact that we're slaughtering in Iraq
3) I hate the Religious Right
4) I hate the fact that we get censored news while the rest of the planet gets the real news. If we were like the rest of the planet, we'd KNOW that the terrorists that we're so afraid of are the ones we created.
5) I hate the fact that there are more black men in prison than in college---by design.
6) I hate the history of this country in relation to Blacks
7) I hate that corporations run the United States PERIOD and people don't know it, don't care, or benefit from it. Case in point: Tommy Chong is in jail for selling a bong while Ken Lay is at the beach somewhere.
8) I hate when they put pickles and mustard on my burgers and I have to pick it off.

Now, that really pisses me off, particularly when you tell NOT to put 'em on there!

Kind of, the US is like a big castle. Canada is our front yard and the rest is our back yard. But all and all it is just America. :

I would like to see more people be more polite and courteous.

Would it kill people to say excuse me, or wave a thank you after you let them into the lane.

Also more aware of their world.

Other than that we rock!

I agree. What I hate most is the sense of greed we've developed. Think about it. All those things you would like to see more of we could if our greed and selfcenteredness wasn't quite so bad.

Hmmmmm...
I'm pro-choice.
I'm not anti-homosexual.
I'm not racist.
I think marijuana should be legalized.
In fact I think that as long as you're not hurting anyone, do whatever makes you happy.

Sorry I don't fit within the confines of your label.

One more thing...By definition, who is a racist? The person to whom race means nothing, or the person who always makes it an issue?

Insulting you insite? You said yourself that "you do smoke weed." Since when stating the fact that smoking weed impairs individuals is an insult?

I have personally seen what weed does in college.
In my own class one acquaintance of mine was affected by smoking weed. He would fall asleep in class, and you could see in his "happy" face what was wrong with him. He wouldn't deny he had been smoking weed. Well, my point is, he had to drop from college because the weed kept twisting his thinking, and he had the attention span of a 2 year old for hours after smoking weed to the point that the professors had to throw him out from class.

You want to waste your life smoking weed, go ahead. I prefer to have an adrenaline rush by parachuting or doing some other natural adrenaline rush activity that is safer for others and I and doesn't impair my thinking. I also prefer, along with most Americans, not to have this drug legal in the US, because its true that we have more than enough deaths caused by "drunk drivers."

Yasem, btw, for someone who keeps bashing and insulting Americans that "on your opinion" are "dumbed-down" and are becoming sheep, you surely defend and want to make legal substances that would "dumb-down" our youth, and America in the overall even more. Good job, i see where you are coming from.


And as for moderate drinking is bad for you, post reliable links, because I have heard quite the contrary, that a glass of wine a day with food is actually good for you.

"The American Heart Association recommends that if people choose to drink, they should drink moderately. One should limit alcoholic beverages to 1-2 drinks per day (A drink is one 12 oz. beer, 4 oz. of wine, 1.5 oz. of 80-proof spirits, or 1 oz. of 100-proof spirits). Studies have found that people who drink moderately have heart disease less often than nondrinkers. However, when people do drink more alcohol, public health dangers increase. These include alcoholism, high blood pressure, obesity, stroke, breast cancer, suicide, and accidents."

Excerpt taken from.
www.health.ri.gov...

That's a reliable link, if you want to dispute this, post an "unbiased link" that says that drinking rarely or moderately has killed people, or has second hand effects which impairs your senses.

Some facts about Marijuana.

"Marijuana affects your brain. THC (the active ingredient in marijuana) affects damages the nerve cells in the part of the brain where memories are formed, making it hard to remember things.

Marijuana affects your self-control. Marijuana can seriously affect your sense of time and your ability to do things that require coordination-like driving. In 1998, nearly 77,000 people were admitted to emergency rooms suffering from marijuana-related problems. This was an increase of more than 373 percent since 1991.

Marijuana affects your lungs. There are more than 400 known chemicals in marijuana. A single joint contains four times as much cancer-causing tar as a filtered cigarette.

Marijuana affects other aspects of your health. Marijuana can limit your body's ability to fight off infection. It can increase your heart rate and lead to frequent chest colds. Some research even shows that long-term marijuana use can increase the risk of developing certain mental illnesses.

Marijuana is not always what it seems. Before it is sold, marijuana can be laced with other dangerous drugs without your knowledge. "Blunts"-hollowed-out cigars filled with marijuana-sometimes have substances such as crack coc aine, PCP, or embalming fluid added to them.

Marijuana can be addictive. As with alcohol and many other drugs, not everyone who uses marijuana becomes addicted, but some users do develop signs of dependence on the drug. They may experience such withdrawal symptoms as loss of appetite, sleep problems, weight loss, and shaky hands. In 1995, 165,000 people entered drug treatment programs to kick their marijuana habit."

Excerpts taken from.
www.health.org...

The links i have seen you post come from biased people who want to smoke weed all the time by making it legal, and making money from selling weed, instead of getting a career and finding a "job" to make money. This is one of the things that is wrong with our country, a lot of people want to find the easy way to make money and be a pothead all the time.

This thread isn't about marijuana. Start a new thread with all your easily debatable links if you want to argue with me. Seriously, start a new thread. You're messing this one up.

*EDIT: Your comment about your friend in college holds no ground with me. I spent my high school life blitzed out of my mind and was a straight 'a' student. I also spent my first year of college the same way before I was caught and didn't make anything lower than a 'b'. Not even a 'b-'. Start a new thread. I'm dying to rip you to shreds.

There is nothing to debate insite, you just want illegal drugs to be legalized and will try to find "supposed" good information from people who have a personal agenda on this and try to legalize these drugs themselves.
I have also heard smokers say good things about smoking cigarettes....

Its true that cigarettes are bad for you and others, but you don't have any "car crashes or other related accidents due to driving under the influence of cigarettes"....

Nomatter what you post, the fact is that marijuana has a lot of side effects which are bad for the body and the mind, and also impairs your physical response in everyday life, puting others in danger.


BTW, this thread is about why there are some things we hate about America, the US, and this is one of them, so its not outside of the topic.

Now you hurt my feelings


You know if you are gonna insult someone you should at least get it right.

I never sided with Hitler, since a HUGE part of my family is Jews that would be kinda stupid now wouldnt it? I merely said he was kicking your ass till us and Russia interfered. While I hate the Nazis and everything they stand for I do admire the Waffen for there courage and skill as an enemy, one Warrior to another. Your mention of "Jewish influence" at the top of our socity tends to make me think YOU agree with him a lot more than me.


As for being pro-war nothing can be futher from the truth as I think I have mention in this thread. I hate war in the way that only those that seen it can.

As for me making a great Nazi well to begin with my Jewish grandmother wouldnt like me joining the party and when she was alive she swung a mean switch. My Grandfathers that fought them would not like it either.

I am a Libertarian you dumbass, nothing could be futher from a nazi then that.

You know your insults are so stupid and devoid of reasoning that you didnt even make me mad.

Lets see.......Were you right about ANYTING?

Nope nothing I can think of.......LOL

If you keep it up I will tell your mother and you will get grounded off the computer

What do I hate about my beloved country of birth?

Fat People. Not that I don't like them personaly, it is just that there are so many of them. (Put the burger down!)

The jerk lawyers and judges that have allowed lawsuit settlements to get so large that the rest of us have to pay for it in the form of ridiculous insurance rates.

But mainly, it is the other Americans who travel around the world, act disrespectful and piss off the people they meet in those other countries and give the rest of us American travelers a bad image.


FOX NEWS

Those are my main gripes.

How about I start at a local level and move on up to the country? Sound good? Ok here goes.

In my city....

I hate the fact that I know people who have never left it, and probably never will.

In my county....

I hate the fact that we put more people on death row in my county alone than every other state in the country put together.

*****MY BATTERY IS RUNNING OUT...I'LL FINISH LATER!!!*****

Amuk for someone that claims to be peacfull, you contradict yourself by calling your self a warrior.

Ok fine I may of been wrong on some points, but that doesn't change the fact you look at your history with bitterness, because the US helped europe during ww2.

But it wasn't anything like a favour was it, it was 5 years late, and Germany was pretty exhausted, and if Pearl Harbour never happened, I am sure US would of done nothing to help. Fortunatly things worked out...for a while.

Maybe thats why the UK told you to stuff it in Vietnam?
Surprised no lessons was learned from that horrific war :-/

You see I dont want to go around in circles here, I just saw someone with the attitude the the USA is a blessing to the world and that everything bad in the outside world should not be interfered with by the USA.....even though a lot of it is the USA's doing..like Iraq, Afghanistan, ...You have helped these countries with war. So I am saying...a lot of the problems in the outside world is down to the USA. So yes you do have a responsibility, which your government spends bombing innocent people! whilst lying and scaring the US public.

This is what the world hates about the USA. I just dont understand how you know this is happening yet at the same time you love your country for it?

I Hate a lot about the UK but it does alot for the less fortunate, like free medical care, free education, and good equal opportunities, and to be blunt a lot better that the USA's....this is just to point out that the USA isn't to great in some areas. Your freedom of speech and choice is fine as long as you agree with the large majority, gun crime is well...a joke! Your country has a lot of problems that could be dealt with.

But won't as long as you have these maniacs in power.

George Bush...how can you support a leader with no brains? He could end up killing all of us!
