Of course the British like to bait Americans; we broke off from them and created a freer society. Americans are free, resourceful and tough as nails.
As if Hong Kong doesn't have Mc Donald's. I'm sure if you lived here you could appreciate our freedom. Maybe you couldn't, I don't know but I
sure as heck would rather be here with all our faults. In my experience, those that rail against Americans are just a little bit jealous.
1. Freer society... No such thing!
2. Americans tough as nails..! I was in New York in 2005 when the Hudson park freeway collapsed and stood there on Riverside Drive while the tough as
nail Americans you refer to fled in utter terror... Sorry-tough as nails!? Nah...
3. Jealous of Americans? Whats there to be jealous of? Your obesity problem? Your debt now controlled by the Chinese? Your inabilty to go more than a
few hours without gathering on street corners and chanting, USA-USA? Your schools which teach you lies?
I love America and Americans and as far as I'm concerned you are treated just as badly by your government as anyone else on this planet. The problem
is that a fair percentage of Americans don't realise it... If we stopped picking faults with one another, while also stopping trying to build up our
countries out of all proportion and refusing to see the negatives, then we would all be far better off.
