FACTS

More immigrants to America than the REST OF THE WORLD COMBINED.

You can pretend and bitch that THE US IS SO UNFAIR MANNNN. CHRISTIANS ARE RUINING IT MANNNN. But the fact remains that everyone is besides themselves to get here.

America IS the greatest country in the world. If you disagree, you're just butthurt that your lesser country can't hold a candle to the US.


This is a prime example of trolling and complete lack of social intelligence.



The posters style can be questioned. However, the facts noted are accurate.

Which DOES raise a valid question,eh?

Anyway, there is an America out there offline that is entirely different from the ever negative internet version. America was literally forged in revolution and warfare, and a little net-trendy bad news is just another day at the office.



No.

This is just trolling.
And comments like this is the reason it gets kind of difficult to have any kind of dialogue, it will just become the same poop flinging contest that this individual is representing.

And to the accuracy of the so called facts.... If you or anyone else just throwing stuff out there would at least make the effort of checking your facts, it would help.

If you base it on per capita the US are not accepting more imigrants than allmost any compareable western country... And I hope that's where you want to put the benchmark.

And....


More immigrants to America than the REST OF THE WORLD COMBINED.


I would be very interested in seeing some numbers on that, I couldn't find anything right now, but you might have better luck....

Anyway, enough of this my dads stronger than yours stupidity. Try to look at the reasons for this antipathy against the US instead of beeing so damn defencive about it.

Why did you get so many stars for that stupid reply? I guess the American ignorance shows blatantly. The average worker has probebly the same or a bit more money then the average us worker, but contrary to the US when we get seriously ill we pay max 1000euro's when you can immediatly go broke and in huge debt which your family has to pay for all just because your afraid of socialism a word raped by Americans of its true meaning.

Look at central europe, rich Americans have a good life in your country because of the protection and low taxes but you forget that America is more and more pour, you'r middle class wil be destroyed. And the only thing left will be rage and an empty belly, while the small minority rests comfortable on top of the dead bodies.

To the OP. I noticed you are basing some of your comparison on vacation time. I can’t see how any country can beat the US when it comes to vactions. We just finished paying 8 million people billions of dollars to do nothing for two years through unemployment benefits. I’d like to see the rest of the world try and beat that.

I have a 4 year degree in IT Management. I work as a technology contractor for a Fortune 100 company. I don't get any paid holidays, paid vacation or sick time. Even when I have off for holidays, I still have to make the hours back up if I want to get paid.

I've worked 40 hours a week, every single week in 2010.

Are you kidding me? We're on the leading edge of technology and engineering. You can't even begin to comprehend what we've done and what we're doing in America today.

But this has nothing to do with quality of life. What's more important? Creating money-making inventions or actually experiencing Life the way it was meant to be experienced?...with love from family, friends and a sense of security?

Also, how many Americans actually benefit monetarily from these innovations that are created in America? We don't even make our own inventions in American factories anymore.

We are not slaves that are here to make things. I am not my job.

Your economy is a joke
your automotive industry is a joke
your social service is a joke
your foreign relations is a joke
your governments attitude to your own citizens is a joke
your education system is a joke
your democracy is a joke


your only successful exports are weapons,drugs and movies.

this isnt about the good americans this is about the bad americans nobody cares that they may or may not be a minority. the fact remains that who ever it was be is lazy fat americans or just plain stupid ones. you allowed you country to be hijacked and used as a tool of destruction and chaos. you can stomp your feet and cry all you want THIS IS THE REALITY. if you dont believe me look at the state of the country now as opposed to the mid 60's when industry was booming.

America is kind of like that 80 year old guy at a night club with too much plastic surgery and the cheap hooker on his arm. He still thinks he is the Sh#T but is too blinded by his pride of how great he used to be to realize how sad and pathetic he has become.

what a shame you had so much promise. when i was a kid growing up i used to envy Americans now i pity you.


how the mighty have fallen.

Anyone who breaks into the US gets:

-100% free healthcare from the EMTALA Act
-free section 8
-free welfare
-free school for their kids
-in 2000 illegals started getting approved for new car loans
-2005 Banks started giving illegals mortgages
-illegal immigrants now get better financial aid for college than Americans
-can drive a car with no insurance and won't be ticketed/fined




YOU find me 1 other country on Earth handing free crap out to anyone who breaks into their country. Good luck.

We've reached the time the fat lady starts to sing. States are insolvent from giving everything out free to illegals along with the Federal Government. What a fool you were for bankrupting yourself for the illegals.

Hope you feel all warm this Christmas knowing Americans are dying from freezing to death because they don't have enough money to heat their homes or freeze to death living in tents in our national forests...all while Congress must send Billions to China to pay interest on the loan we got from them which is keeping the Chinese bellies full and them warm at night.

You have no idea why the world laughs at how stupid America is.

I never realized that ATS is overflowing with rednecks and hillbillies. Just look @ some of the comments on this thread. "12 days of vacation per year is enough" How about long term health? Do you think it's healthy to work 12 hours a day, 6 days per week, and do that for years and years?

Other losers keep saying: "America is the greatest country on earth". What is your basis for saying that? Look up average american life span vs. european. Look up the healthcare situation vs. Canada, Europe and other civilized countries. America is right below.......Slovenia.........in terms of healthcare.

Don't you think that OUR greatest country on earth should give us the most basic right as humans? And that is the right to live a healthy life. See how good your employer will treat you if you come down with a major illness. See how your mortgage company will treat you if you fall ill.

In this country you are good until you don't have the physical strength to go work. Once you are not physically fit to work your greatest country on earth will kick you in the rear end and say goodbye.

I cannot believe how ignorant some people are. But then again Bush won the election twice so it doesn't really surprise me that most Americans are clueless.

Great post! I know I couldn't bring my family to the US as they insist on injecting all kinds of toxic vaccines into your children before they can go to school so as the Pharms can get even richer still. The sheep need to wake up and realize what's going on

Yeah but most loyal Americans won't just abandon this country for a better wage; we're here to make things better for anyone who comes here. America is still the greatest country on Earth, and the OP is just one defector we will not miss


Sounds like denial, even Mexico can offer a better standard of living than USA these days

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.



That house would be a long way from being your own, even if you tell yourself you own it. These 100% mortgages contributed towards the collapse of the system

the bad news for everyone else is the rich have seen how well the US works for the rich and they want to copy it. countries with some of the highest standards of living like ireland will be sold into debt and under the pretense of paying made-up loans off the quality of life will be lowered while the rich stuff their wallets

just watch as it happens

Well I guess that's you way of doing something, shouting about it on a obscure website. A true american would be contacting their representitives about taking ACTION.

Yes, they should be. But considering I am Australian, living in Australia as is clearly stated (albeit upside-down) under my avatar, the best I can do is point out the faults to Americans in the hopes they will act upon them and do something about it.

But nice try though....attempting to insult me by accusing me of not being a "real American" lmao.

Sorry, you mis understand. I'm sure your a great Aussie, I was referring to you defending people who post how unhappy they are in the USA, but are not doing anything OTHER than just posting here. I was replying to a post you made yesterday.

I have a question, who would you have more respect for?
1)Someone who just blindly loves the Country no matter what.
2)Someone who blast their Country, but doesn't do anything about it
3)Someone who blast their Country, but trys to make it better.
4)Someone who blast their Country and just gets up and leaves

You are so very lucky to have been able to leave this hell hole. thank god for your place you foun, and please please pray I find a way out, I am shaking with envy wishing I am you. peace
