Yep. What use is intelligence, knowledge and experience when you can simply shut all that off and live your life as a child.
No, I don't actually think you know what it really is to be open minded. To believe this scenario certainly isn't open mindedness, it is either
insanity or idiocy at best.
At worst it could actually be racism.
I have noticed many Americans, especially on this website (which I have been noticing has been becoming more and more right wing by the month) have
been desperately scrambling to discredit your new President.
People have been frantically searching for anything to belittle the man or to question his legitimacy, which to people in Europe (and I presume people
who are taking notice on other continents too and, of course, the many intelligent Americans), seems absolutely extraordinary and actually quite
You have to wonder why there is this angry, thrashing backlash against the man, when, after so many years of Bush absolutely screwing your country
over and giving the rest of the World the very worst image and opinion of you all. You now get a man who has totally reversed that impression of
America and he has a hell of a lot to offer as a President but you are all so desperate for him to fail! For him to fall and embarrass himself (and
you by extention) or even to disgrace himself! You are praying for him to disgrace himself!
I really cannot see any other reason than certain people not being able to cope with having a black President. They might not actually say those words
but there is clearly an agenda in their need to discredit the man.
During the elections, Europeans saw just how racist America still is.
As Queen Gertrude replied to Hamlet...
"The lady doth protest too much, methinks."
We in the UK and Europe saw the way race was dealt with during the elections and we were amazed that America made such a huge
thing about it.
Race became what the elections were about and this only proved how America is still completely screwed up about race and how it is still so very
important there and such a huge problem.
When we see your media exhausting themselves trying to prove that they are ok with it or happy with it, we are only bemused by why it is still even
I do love the idea though of all those horrible, worthless little rednecks across America (a very tiny minority of the wonderful American public, I
know) who are absolutely disgusted at having a black President.
The thought just makes me chuckle. These useless, dumb, hicks who have never done anything worthwhile in their lives, who have nothing of use to offer
society, yet they still think they are somehow better than the most important person in America (and arguably the World).
Pfff. What a waffling, long winded post. Sorry, I'm extremely tired. I hope though, at least my original post (that of a certain transparent, racist
agenda on show) is clear.
I know that many other Brits and Europeans agree with me on this matter and I would like to hear if anyone agrees or disagrees on here. Thankyou.

People laughing at something does not necessarily invalidate it. People probably laughed at Galileo's theories that the Earth went 'round the sun.
So? It could well be true. If it is, y'all should be worried. Very worried.
You do know that you aren't awarded anything on this site for ludicrous and ridiculous posts, don't you? In fact, it's generally looked down on.
