No not in the least I'm just embarrassed for you. Flying in the face of the present "Anti-American" craze.
It's one thing to dislike a Government and a totally different one saying that
"most" are one way or another. That in itself demonstrates ignorance.
Oh and by the way I also have read a lot of threads that just troll and bait with an Anti-American flavor so that goes both ways.
I can understand why you want to have a little cry for yourself.. if I was in your position, I would as well.
Also, to be fair, collectively, ye do deserve a lot more of this light hearted abuse.. its even funnier when ye cant take it.

I'm personally not trying to get a troll going here but merely trying to point out how your media presents its information to your masses. Our media can't get away with that because our mentality is a little less forgiving toward it with our news being presented more as information than as direction.
An example of this is we don't have anything like Hannity, O'Reilly, Oprah, Letterman, Leno, Walters and the rest of them being presented as personalities forwarding an opinion and providing some spin on the news/article. The emphasis here is on the data/information and not the personality or presenter even though this does occur in some morning/daytime mind rot programming but is minimal.

Fair enough but why do you think that China will become an aggressor? Suggestions of that are mainly coming from US media.. not Chinese actions. T

I mean... Oprah? Leno? Come on. You know why they get away with it here, and not there (supposedly?) Because we think they're funny.

I constantly see examples like this on Television from the USA and I can "Only Conclude" that the messages are targeted at dumbed down fools with a 5th grade education.

Here's the thing, your just as bad as those people (maybe just as dumb?) if you believe the stereotypes or the hate that is spewing out of your mouth.
So continue yapping, you sound like some European drone who has been told how bad the US is and the media there which breeds dumb people.
