Oh how pathetic, when the BRITISH use the term “panty waist” to describe ANY American…

This has got to be the ultimate humiliation suffered by Americans since the collective international laughing at our national stupidity at believing GW’s staged 9/11 event and following war’s for the liberation of multi-national corporations and Exxon to do business. The shame is palpable and well deserved.

I might be being picky here, but the article calls it "panty WAIST", whereas you have written it as "panty WASTE"....do you think they mean the same thing?

I have heard the term "panty waste" before, and it pretty much means what it says, but a waist is that part of your body near your hips is it not? Calling someone a waist just shows they are not too skilled in the art of insults if you ask me, kind of like saying to someone they are a complete elbow!!!

Is there another meaning behind this saying?

Interchangeable in meaning an emasculated shell of masculinity; here directed at national might and resolve. Meaning our President is going to ‘dialog’ world tyrants to death as they laugh and do whatever they want.

To think that a British journalist could point out that the obvious enemies to our Western way of life are “giving the finger” to our President should be a harbinger of what is to come for Americans. Instead, we have almost a national psychosis in perpetrating the myth of ‘all continues as before’. Wake up.

lol i love firstly that op managed to blame all of Britain for a single blog, this is just like when american news says 'a study out of england says.....' like we only have one group of people who do studies lol.

Then their is the fact the op can't read or tell the difference between rubbish and knicker elastic - no they aren't the same thing.

What does pantie waste even mean btw? lol

oh and as for the actual insult, try reading the article again and spot the bit where it's explained. Haha no wonder british people mock you yanks, you take it all too seriously and have minimal reading comprehension skills ;P

What's the point of this thread? I know this Obama bashing but I'm kind of at a loss as to why or why I should care.

It means that Pax Americana is finished in the Middle East and elsewhere. It means that unless Israel acts unilaterally, Iran is going to attempt to wipe them off the map just as their President says he soon will. It means that I would not be in a rush to move to Alaska or the northern end of California as those areas very well might glow in the dark soon. It means that our President is a world globalist want-to-be who cares not a wit about the sovereignty of America.

Ok everyone laugh at OP's childish silliness. I'm from the UK and can state some things you might want to know OP.

1. If one person in the UK states something about the U.S it doesn't mean ALL us Brits feel the same.
2. I don't think anyone FROM Britain uses the term "Panty" or Panties".
3. You may or may not have heard but.. lulz here it goes for chuckles... some of AMERICA think YOUR President is a fake.

How would you feel if a U.S journalist wrote such things OP? Would you feel peeved that such things could *GASP* come from a U.S Citizen!? Oh the horror!!


Btw OP.. take a good long look at your President BOWING to those scoundrels in the Middle East.....




Going to drink some tea and eat some crumpets now old chap!

Some guy with a blog in England calling Obama a panty waist means all that?

It is pointing out the obvious that our president will do nothing as missiles fly but ask for UN sanctions and threaten heated dialog; once that is widely understood by the world’s bullies they are going to have an international field day.

The following is my opinion as a member participating in this discussion.

Well I am no "bleeding heart progressive" but I am curious to know why you believe the words of one person is representative of how the entirety of that country feels....

It is just a blog... you do know that right?

I could make a blog sharing my opinion of any one person but that does not mean that my entire country feels the same way I do. Infact it would be rather naive of me to believe that is the case....

One persons opinion does not represent the whole nation....

That is not an "excuse" either... That is a fact....

The blog is nothing more than a person doing some name calling, which I might add hurts their credibility because no legitimate argument for or against anything involves name calling. In fact nothing at all worth any value involves name calling.

It is just a single man doing some name calling... Nothing more, nothing less and that blog deserves no more attention then to say they are not mature enought to discuss such topics with out resorting to such childish antics...

I would be far more inclined to consider this persons opinion if they offered it up in an adult manner... But the name calling turns me off.

Bottom line, this is the blog of a single person who does not represent anybody but themselves and they are incapable of discussing such issues with out resorting to childish antics which does nothing but hurt there own credibility.

As an ATS Staff Member, I will not moderate in threads such as this where I have participated as a member.

This blog points out what numerous overseas commentators have been saying. I was shocked to see the video “Boy Wonder” put out by the BBC not long after our president’s first over seas trip. The French press has been even more graphic with descriptions of the world giving Obama the finger. Pathetic and sad.

It is belabouring the issue to make this small point that he says the british said it , from a non british outsiders perspective it is easy to say 'the british ' said it , nobody thinks he means every single person who is british holds that opinion . It is to your own discernment that you read the context of what he writes , it could have been better worded , but it is not a blatant and flagrant missive that specifically states that all british think this way , it's just slightly worded wrongly and some are out to make an issue of it .

Actually, the blogger states what many of us in the US have stated, complete with our impromptu gag reflex kicking in.

It's just that we get a kick out of a British cousin saying what an increasing number of Yanks are saying.

I've personally seen more spine in a squid.

Those of us from the middle or the right weren't particularly proud of some of the crap Bush pulled, but this guy Obama is a national embarrassment.

I've seen bigger balls on nanocrystals.

What this means is that we are at a great risk now. The last time we had a cherry was Kennedy, and because he pretended to be a gelding at the Bay of Pigs, we almost had a full nuclear exchange months later.

Effeminate fairies tend to get pressed by the bold.

And a fairy with his back to the wall and finger on the trigger just may be compelled to do something stupid.

Thus, our amusement with our simultaneous concern.

This sums him up quite well .


America's Nightmare: The Obama Dystopia
Manipulation, propaganda, imagery & PR wizardry



After 8 years of the Bush-Cheney nightmare during which we saw the wanton destruction of Afghanistan and Iraq, the cynical negation of centuries of Law designed to protect the most basic human rights and a foreign policy worthy of Genghis Khan, there came along the "Great Black Hope" in the persona of Barack Obama. The collective world consciousness turned uncritically to what was presented as a new era for peace, change and trust in Government.

Never before had one witnessed such an accomplished use of manipulation, propaganda, imagery and public relations wizardry to sell the public a man who was to take the baton from Bush and run with it in the race to destroy the economy, the rights of the people and help birth a nation totally controlled by those who have always lurked in the shadows of power. "Change" was promised and was delivered in the form of a deepening of the already Dystopic nightmare.

Promises were broken with no apology, the same creative legalese that infested the Bush administration, in the form of John Yoo and Alberto Gonzalez, was again used to deny justice to the inmates of Guantanamo, It was used to justify more torture, more destruction of the Constitution and more illegal surveillance of U.S. citizens.

The President that extended the hand of peace to the Muslim world has murdered hundreds of Pakistani men, women and children. The President who promised accountability in Government has filled his staff with lobbyists, banksters and warmongers. His Attorney General refuses to prosecute some of the worst war crimes committed in modern history and continues to give legal cover to criminals who tortured with impunity.

The country has been further bankrupted by the continuing theft of taxpayer money as the Wall St. campaign donors receive their quid pro quo. Obama has stood by idly as Bernancke states that the private Federal Reserve is not answerable to either Congress of the American public. The U.S. taxpayer is now on the hook for $14.3 Trillion and rising. Foreclosures and unemployment are rising with no meaningful efforts by the administration to alleviate the symptoms, never mind the cause. The new image of America is one of tent cities, lengthening soup kitchen lines, sherrifs evicting countless thousands of young and old from their homes, once prosperous towns descending in to an eerie stillness and an increasingly disillusioned populace.

The "War on terrorism" has mutated in to a control grid for an increasingly aware population. The foundation for this had already been put in place by Bush with the Patriot Act, Patriot Act 2, Military commissions act and numerous executive orders that strangled what was left of Posse Comitatus and the Constitution.

Homeland Security now defines "Terrorists" as those who believe in the Constitution, the first, second and fourth amendments. Returning veterans are being targeted for a denial of their second amendment rights. A "Terrorist Watchlist" of more than a million and rapidly growing, is being used as the basis for denying citizens the rights to travel and to work.

Obama is now mulling over the idea of indefinite detention without trial for U.S. citizens. This, from a teacher of the Constitution ! Bills are in congress to criminalize free speech on the Internet via the Cyberbullying Act which will make hurting somebody's feelings a felony. Just like the Patriot Act this will morph in to a criminalization of political free speech and any criticism of the Government.

While in danger of being ‘warned’ and having points deducted by intrepid (closet British phobic?) for merely returning an answer for Natureboy’s inane palaver, let me point out to the respondent that while it may be “childish silliness” for this to be hard to swallow; it is the very fact that a British Journalist can accurately point out what is painfully obvious to Americans while our press remains in a state of ecstatic euphoria with funny feelings running up their legs that makes this such an insult. Howbeit that the nation that first guarded the rights of a free press can now be suffering from one so idiotically sold out to have become nothing more than cheerleaders for our Pretender in Chief.

i really don't get where you're coming from now, you're angry that the british press (bloggers) have someone who dislikes obama while you're also angry that america has some press who like obama?

Yes it was weird when he said that about the chills in his spine, he is however a lowrent reporter on a low quality TV network and all over the world they say ridiculous and stupid things - it's because they're not very good at their job, not very bright or far more often they just got carried away with themselves and said something a little silly. Many of the people who work on the big channels support Obama, hardly a shock when you consider a large majority of people voted him into office.

Here in England many people also like obama, we have a predominantly 'socialist' mindset as does most of europe and so we see obama as having moved america in the right direction and we hold out hope for the future. However anti-american sentiment s rife for many, many well founded and logical reasons (none the less because of the huge disaster which was your last presidents term, the fact your companies are evil and corrupt and you appear to be speading a cancerous greed all over the world) so in england and the rest of europe many people are still going to look at Obama without the rose tinted specs on.

That said you can find a MASSIVE swathe of opinions on both sides of the pond, I don't remember Billo or Sean Hanity getting 'chills' - The English press is much like your own (in fact most of your big papers are named after our papers, true fact) it's made up of all sorts of people offering all sorts of opinions - the idea is you read them all, think about them compairing and contrasting the pros and cons and come to your own educated opinion.

Probably because President Sotero has been saying he wants to change the image of US.
If our closest ally sees him in this light, what does the rest of the world think of him?

Whether it's "waste" or "waist" doesn't really matter because, the term "panty" says it all.
