Hey, this thread kinda went beyond what I expected, plentiful responses. Mostly, I liked this one:

Just thought it was worth quoting in case anyone missed it.
I know we're all different and variety be the spice of life and that. When I said about singing from the same hymn sheet, I was more alluding to the
fact that, for the most part, we all want things to improve for the better in some way, or at least I'd hope so. But it's naive to assume that all
people think and feel this way...sadly there are people who don't want what's best for everyone - what can ya do, eh?
We'll never all want the same or think the same, I think the key word is tolerance, really. People get too uptight about what others believe, think
I ain't angry about this response, it kinda made me giggle. The guy totally missed what I was trying to say and is a good example of the type of
attitude I'm talking about. He's spot on, though...it's not my place, yeah - we're an ocean apart - he made a sound point...mars is a planet apart
- we should but the hell out and leave it well alone.
Toleance ain't worth the stone it's carved on. I, personally, don't care who criticises my country or its politics...not that I was criticising or
judging any other nation in any way, my thread was attacking - if anything - human nature, and if anyone needed an example of the type of attitude I
was hinting at there it is right there.
I don't believe any hype, per se...nor are my bowler hat/redneck comments a "theory", those opinions were based on the mindless tit-for-tat
bickering that seems to engulf any thread where UK/US patrons get caught up in the gun debate...read the threads and you'll see for yourself. The
thread that started off about how UK citizens don't need guns and ended up a debate about how brits drink tea all day speaks volumes.
As a human being, you, me...all of us - are entitled to an opinion regarding any earthly issue, be it rooted in the states, UK or timbuktoo. Your
response is as valid as anyones and is quite an interesting one at that, and I'm being sincere when I say that.
I'm well prepared to tolerate other people criticising my nation, its people and politics...if that tolerance rots and dies I'll go back to being
defensive and attacking those who disagree with me, but in my current frame of mind I don't think that's a productive approach.
Certainly one of the more interesting responses in a thread that has many, many interesting responses...so I applaud you for it, thanks.
I enjoyed reading through this thread again, mostly amicable and lot's of sensible debate coming out of it, thanks everyone.
