look at the title of the thread- it`s addressing Americans specifically. why not the Japanese? ze Germans? the British? because somehow in the mind of the topic starter the above mentioned countries are not as important as Murika. i am stressing the word IMPORTANT here. imagine a thread titled "Japanese/Swedes, i have a bad news for you- your country sucks". it would fall into obscurity after the first page is barely finished. so why America? because it matters. let it sink in.

...and rubs many overseas the wrong way just by the fact of its existence.

The amount of income you make is limited to your skills.

If you got the skills you make the cash simple.

If your smart you can go to the bank with a buisness plan and take out a loan or put up your own capital. Don't do this...Then start your buisness.

It is done everyday here in the Great US of A. Some countries its not that easy. Hell in the US you can buy a house and not even put 1 penny down. Where else can you do that.

I love this country.

Yeah, that happens every day in every country..... That's what banks do....
I mean, you gotta compare yourself to a western country, not Eritrea....'
Why do you think that's special for the US?
If you can show a bank that you're good for paying back the money, they will give you money.... Even in Eritrea...

Not entirely on thread topic....

But I find it arrogant that people assume they were created by something greater than themselves.

Especially since we are made up entirely of cells which can exist outside of our bodies.

Not in a country that didn't have a financial meltdown because of said practice, which was packaged and sold as AAA to the rest of the world.

No time for me to be angry,
I'm going this Thursday to Disney World Magic Kingdom, for Mickeys Merry Christmas Party!!
Anybody is welcome to come you just need a ticket,
They will be serving sugar cookies and hot cocoa through out the park.
There is many Mickey's Merry Christmas Party Nights through Dec. But I'll be there on Dec 9th.

Life is what you make it,
I feel blessed that I can go enjoy a night with my family and friends doing things that make me smile.
There will be thousands of people there from all over the world, different backgrounds, different religions, different language, different political views but on that night it won't matter because on that night we will all be kids!

I'm ashamed to be an American these days. This country has to be one of the most propaganda filled, prejudice, fascist places I have ever seen. It reminds me of Nazi Germany. Whatever happened to representatives of the people? Seems to be representatives of reputations and bank accounts these days.

Just reading some of these replies just shows how dumb, brainwashed or both some americans are. The reason this country sucks is because it was founded by a wealthy elite who murdered and made slaves out of people of color. The only difference nowdays is instead of murder, we just imprision people(more than all other countries combined by the way) and slavery is stronger than it's ever been. Salvery was never done away with, it was just restructured.

Why pay for housing, food and health care of a slave, and more importantly, why just limit it to black people. Let's just give them all credit, that they can never pay off and let them pay for these things themselves, with interest, while they do their work also.

I'm sick and tired of morons who have kids preaching how many jobs we should all have. YOUR kids can dictate your life, NOT MINE. Seriously, go piss off and live in your delusional world with your kids. Middle class nowdays is considered between 60,000 and 90,000 a yr. That's $30 to $45 an hour. Please tell me where these damn jobs are and how many of them there are?

99% of americans and their families have NEVER had a say so about anything and have been made slaves of wether they know it or not. How can any moron say "I'm proud to be an American"? America doesn't even have nothing to do with you. America is for corporate profit and establishing a military outpost to control the world.

You see what gets me is people claim america is the greatest nation on earth and they are so proud of there country...well if you look back to it's beginning and before that you will see that it was founded on genocide, murder, and lies..."Bury my heart at wounded knee" and "In the spirit of Crazy Horse" you can see exactly what your great country was founded on wiping out and bringing extinction and almost extinction to several hundred indigenous nations that were doing just fine before this USA thing came about and (Thanksgiving Massacre) pilgrims and columbus thing.
Forcing them into concentration camps and slowly killing them all in a genocidal incremental move. Then never honoring treaty and always changing the laws to suit your own greedy ways "Why we call most Wasicu" takers of the fat. When we have tried to fight recently "1973" your great U.S. Govt. moves in with there paid assassins and starts the killing and propaganda machine there are 64 murders by the FBI that have never been investigated and my brother Leonard Peltier is still in prison 30+ years for something he never did but to be kept quiet so the USA doesn't have to admit there guilt and mass crimes committed. We get brushed under the carpet and silence follows no one wants to see what has happened and what continues to happen to us...We are the USA's darkest and dirtiest lie and cover-up!
Please don't go here unless you have your facts and proof because I will stomp you...don't want to but I will.
I didn't want to leave my home and family in Eagle Butte on Cheyenne River and Pineridge, Standing Rock, Rosebud Rez But Fortunately I'm NOT stupid and can see the writing on the wall and want a better life for my children than what I had grown up with (Thanks to your Great USA)... so when I married my Russian wife we decided it would be in ours and our childrens best interest to move to Russia. I have NEVER regretted that move and decision because I live in paradise now and I am thankful for this everyday and my prayers go out to you. Mitakuye Oyasin, The Great Wolf.

And i always wondered why more and more Americans were moving perma to live in Australia...

Apparently your healthcare is pretty messed up too? And the amount of free government services is almost non-existent over there?

As an Australian, it's not who's country is better than yours.
In Australia we get 4 weeks annual leave working on a full time basis, but we are one of few countries that actually don't use our entitlements for some reason.

Come to Australia !!!!
Come via BOAT !!! apparently we put you all up and subsidise you better that the pensioners. I would definitely love to have more Americans come than the usual Indian, Sri Lankan, Afghani economic refugees that we get here.
Don't pay ever to see a doctor, elective surgery....pay your taxes and you'll be entitled to a new hip / knee etc.

So hurry up and come, our borders are open

See...you American people dont desereve anything.

After all your gov has done to protect your lives in the face of terror you are still ungrateful.

No wonder the US gov needs to use sites like ATS as a place to find extremists and homegrown unpatriotic terrorists like yourself!!

Bad news? Really?

Because I am American and have been living in Europe for about the past 5 years, plus 4 years prior, and I can assure you, were I to return home, I would be kissing the ground rather than rioting. In fact, I am not the only one.

Sure, things back home could get bad. But after living in "nanny state utopia" for a few years,

If cramped living space, ridiculously high taxes, an unhealthy dependancy on the government to coddle you from cradle to grave, high cost of living, and regulation down to your bodily functions is somehow your idea of "high standards of living" well, that's your own call. I really don't see anyone back home rioting for that. Well, maybe in New England and California. But elsewhere....nah.....

Universal healthcare and extra yearly slack off time really don't cut it, and given the current economic crisis that is putting a domino hurt on the EU, plus the serious austerity measures being drawn up all over the place, I see those vacations getting slashed, health benefits tightened and lessesned in an attempt to cut costs and keep the country from total economic collapse, ect.

In fact, funny thing is, even with all these nifty benefits, it's the Europeans I see rioting in the streets and going berserk that they are going to actually have to fend for themselves more. Major rioting back home? Nope.
