**** This is in no way a thread bashing the U.S of A.......its merely a thread on how i think the perception of this country in the eyes of those from
elswhere has changed. i would be interested to see if others from other countries agree ****************
I would be interested to hear from other people in regards to the fact that i think the U.S has lost its "mojo". I can remember as a child we grew
up worshipping anything american. If you met an american it was like wow.
We admired everything "u.s". Their t.v shows, their cars, their patriotism, their sport, their leaders and when they spoke, the world listened.
im now 43 and i think in the last say 6 years, the allure of all things "american" has been badly tarnished. i dont think that the world looks to
the u.s with rose coloured glasses anymore. when a star came out to australia years ago all the australian t.v shows would climb over each other to
interview them and crowds gathered where ever they went. now its just like here comes another twit, who gets paid mega money for doing whatever the
paid advisers whisper in their ear because they are too dumb to think for themselves. its not only celebrities, its the whole "hollier than thou"
attitude of the polititions, business people, stars and any movers and shakers from their.
in my humble opinion, i think this can be put down to a few people and a few events. The whole world listened when george bush told us that the
baddies had weapons of mass destruction. this proved to be not true. i dont blame them for thinking that they had them, but we all thought that
america was smart enough and had the fbi and the cia and they were the best in the world at intelligence to know if it was true or not. hurricane
katrina and those haunting images of people begging for food and water, then onto mundane things like that skanky paris hilton, brittany spears and
lindsey lohan. even trying to take the secretary of state, hillary clinton, serious when you know what her husband was up to in the oval office while
she was out prunning the roses in the famous rose garden.
It just seems to me that before, when the mighty u.s spoke, all other countries shut up and listened to a certain extent. now days its like you cant
even get it right in your own country so how dare you try and tell the rest of us that you are in charge. its just like the rest of the world is the
classroom, and the president is the teacher, and you have the naughty kids like iran, nth korea, the taliban in the classroom playing up and no matter
how much the teacher threatens them to behave, its too late because they have lost the respect towards the teacher.
i for one hope and pray that america can get its act back together as i think we need a western world superpower to be the strongest, scariest boss.
it doesnt go well for anyone if it looks like the lunatics are running the assylam.
