The difference when it comes to taxes, you've got it all wrong. Higher taxes used to exist in the US. The 91% tax rate for the highest income bracket under Eisenhower, for starters.

Higher taxes pay for things (preferably not war, but that is up the citizens to become qualified to answer against through protest and keeping their representatives beholden to their values, right?). So when you have higher taxes in a "Socialist" country like the UK, you get health care and university. When you have lower tax rates and loopholes (such that the semi-wealthy middle-class pays for large portions of the taxes only because the top tier evade their fair share), you end up with underfunded mandates, lack of services and bridge collapses. It's really quite simple. Increase taxes on corporations and enforce the rules.

The corporations don't want to pay...wha-wha-wha...they threaten to offshore their companies to places with friendlier tax rates (read as "third-world working and living conditions"), then slap their products with a high tariff to be brought in to the US and let young, fresh upstarts pave the way with new manufacturing...purge the old landed gentry, the playboy hedgefunders and shell-corp profiteers with their silver spoon and throne, and let the new ideas flourish.

Oh mighty slayer of tin cans, with every post you garner more awe from me. LOL.

Heres one for you:
Language, I know theoretically we speak the same language but really do we?
US: Toilet UK: Loo
US: cigarette UK: fag
US: Call me. UK: ring me up.
US: come over to my place. UK: Knock me up. ( US has whole other meaning for that one dear brits)
US: Take a vacation UK : Go on holiday.


Ok, i'm English and first, i say toilet and loo, i say cigarette and fag, i've never said ring me up, it's give me a buzz (or something like that, all depends where in England you are. No one would EVER say knock me up if they meant coming round, because knocking someone up is to get them pregnant. And the last was right.

Actually, the english break everything we make now that I think about it.

We create rock and send forth Elvis
You counter it with the beetles and turn everyone into druggies

We create epic zombie flicks
you counter and make shaun of the dead

Our zombies are a artistic referendum on creeping consumerism...slow and dulled down eating into death
You make em run and turn them into a common monster

We create the internet, a place of automation and computer sharing
You counter with HTTP protocol, allowing any idiot that can point and click to navigate through it

We invent the TV, a place where we can shine
you counter with the best super-villians in media

-shakes fist towards england-

Question:

Why the hell are U.S. Americans so damn patriotic? Every one I have met is so full of themselves, so rabid about preaching their culture, waving their flag around!

I think they are the most brainwashed people of all! You guys here at ATS should be well aware of media influence in controlling people's perceptions and attitudes. U.S. Americans are slaves to their nation, and their government. It is sad, and sickening at the same time.

And why do these sad, sad little people always feel the need to go on and on about how "great" their country is, and how much "better" it is than any other country in the world? I know this website is based in the U.S.A., but that posts like this are allowed prevalence here just makes me sad. It is ignorant, offensive, and nothing but a testament to extent of brainwashing that is occurring in that forsaken facade of a culture.

I came to this site to join in discussions on topics of interest to me, and thought I could do this here considering the large userbase reflecting a myriad of diverse opinions. I did not come here to be insulted, time and time again, by these repulsive U.S. American attitudes of false superiority over the rest of the world.

If I see one more post by a U.S. American insulting other countries yet again, well, ATS will lose this member. Perhaps people want this place to be exclusively U.S.? Certainly seems to be the case. I'm not from the U.S.A., and my negative impression of that nation's people is worsening the longer I spend on this forum. I feel unwelcome here, and my experience on this site has certainly left me with nothing but a vile aftertaste and a rising hatred.

Your right the good ole USA is better than England (Although both are completely Fkd) but is it better than Scotland? Now there is a dilemma.

How about what they did to Johnny Depp?
He's a Mexican/American from East LA living in France and now has a bogus English accent.

I also find it funny how you 'ran' from England to get away from our tyranical leaders blah de blah and now look at the country, some good that did ...


Infact: Australia turned out better and wasn't that a prisoner colony at some point ... says an awful lot about your founding fathers

Appreciate the tone of your posting - just a quick point about the media and the cost of the licence. While many channels, both cable and not, are paid for by advertising, everything the BBC produces - and it's a huge amount of programming across different formats and platforms - is AD FREE! Just imagine how good that is. For £2.50 ($4?) a week, I think it's a good deal.


I really have to agree here, anything ad-free is better than not ad-free. God advertising is like athletes foot. Once you get it, it never goes away.
Ugh
