I like america too, because I'm not a snob who think I'm better than any body else like you do

If i remember rightly the US joined both World Wars a little late in the game.

By the way Australians VOTED to keep there Monarch.

Remember history judges great nations not only on the fact that they became great, but also on what they do once in that position. Or to use a bushism "how they spend there political capital".

They'd be laughing if Nader won. No, they are more shocked, saddened, confused, angry, bitter and above all afraid. They're also feeling a great connection to all of the Kerry supporters out there, had it been up to all of the world, he would have won by a landslide.

I understand if you like America, I really do too. That is why I want the country where I was born to be great again. Love and human understanding should come before blind patriotism. I've been doing a lot of soul searching since the election, as the rest of the world has as well.

The best way I can describe the feelings would be much like, if say your hero turned out to be a fake. In places like Canada, the EU, Japan and Australia the US people were really actually looked up to, even when their politicians were not. After all, they saved the world from Nazism and such. Now, however, the world really does feel let down, if Bush had lost the popular vote but won on electoral votes they wouldn't feel so bad. They trusted the Americans to make the right choice, and less than half of them did.

Americans never asked for the responsibility they hold, and until now they have shown remarkable courage, honor and wisdom in what they fight for, be it against Nazis or against their own government's unjust wars in places like Vietnam. You have frightened the world America, and they have great reason to be afraid.

May you make it through this and see the error of your choice.

And to all of you Kerry supporters out there: I know it looks bleak but please keep fighting! The world is by and large behind you, and if it helps any, we got your back. It's people like you that keep some hope for America alive out here in the rest of the world. We're all rooting for you.

Too many good ideas get rejected just because they were presented by the wrong person. It's better to argue ideas. Taking the confrontation attitude will instantly polarize the opponent thus making things just harder.

Besides liberal vs conservative is far far too simplified way to classify people.

America has a big enough problem trying to bring all people back to a civil tone. Seeing headlines such as this

How can 59,054,087 people be so dumb?

shows the hypocrisy of some of those who say that they like America but hate it's leaders.

It also shows a lack of understanding of the spirit of America, because headlines such as that will only tend to make us pull together.

O.k...listen...I won't argue any more, I love you, I love americans it's the politics and closed mind that gets on my nerves and SUCK my energies...

My idea is that, we should get to know each other more to understand why someone think in a special way....Everybody in this world is UNIQUE wheter they live in canada or USA or irak...everyone lives in a different way and I accept that

I'm a young woman and I'm pro-peace, I love life without hate...I love blacks, asians, gays, skin heads, white, blonds, brunettes, muslims, mormons, christians, budhists and so on......I'm for freedom and free speech

That's it!!!! Sorry if I said bad stuff

The facts are that porn is addictive and that it
promotes violence against women.

These are not facts.
These are merely claims some people have made using some of the available research.

Are you really saying it is reasonable to start interferring with people's
lives on such a level because some unfortunates and some idiots can't
handle themselves......over sex?

No doubt you are just about to post the studies that showed porn to be
beneficial, huh?

- Oh look, some personal moral religious opinion, how interesting....for you.

As for 'reducing people to objects' I suggest you worry about ...

So don't use porn if you don't like it. Just don't try forcing everyone else
into your moral viewpoint.

By the way I love the hilarious ding-bat idea that the Islamic world
specifically hated and attacked the USA for the porn output of Holywood,
very funny.


Hey .... Get a grip.
I was having a conversation with CARGO.
You obviously haven't been in on it from
the beginning, and you haven't bothered
to read what we were discussing, or you
wouldn't have jumped in and said such
stuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuupid things.

YES, porn is addictive. You have no background
in bio-chemistry (as I do). There isn't enough space
on this thread to post link upon link and book upon
book for you to read to get your psychology degree
(as I have) and to actually learn the facts. Go to
college. Learn. Then come back and speak with
some knowledge of the subject.

Your complaint about posting 'merely claims' and 'some'
available research is drivel. As I stated .... porn addiction
is a scientific FACT.

Your 'question' - is it reasonable for me to interfere with
peoples lives because some people can't handle porn?
Is really bizzare. At no point did I interfere with anyones
choice to indulge in porn. I pointed out destructive
possibilities in a conversation I was having with CARGO.
Companies that sell beer/wine/hard liquor also point out
the destructive possibilities of their product ...
'don't drink and drive' etc. .... Cigarrett packages contain
a warning label about cancer. This isn't interfering, it is
prudent instructions on how to handle their product. Not
everyone who smokes will get cancer, but it is wise to warn
ahead of time that it could happen. Not everyone who drinks
will get in a car accident and kill themselves or others, but it
is wise to warn that it could happen. Not everyone who looks
at porn will get addicted, but it is wise to warn that it can happen.

NO - I was not going to post any studies that show porn is
beneficial. Absolutely not.

Your smart a$$ comment about my posting a religious opinion
was idiotic. CARGO said my thought on porn sounded
'fundamentalist christian'. I explained to him exactly what my
opinion was, and why. Science/sociology/religion combo.
You don't like it? That's your problem. Next time try reading
our conversation and exactly why I posted that answer to
him.

BTW - reference your uneducated suggestions about
what you think I should be worried about - Your
opinion on what I should or shouldn't be 'worried' about
means nothing to me.

Your comment - 'don't try FORCING everyone else into your
moral viewpoint' was very strange. The purpose of this
site is discussion. That's exactly what CARGO and I were
doing. DISCUSSING. Where they hell you get 'forcing' is
beyond me. Seems that CARGO's and my discussion has
hit a nerve with you. (Guilty about something?) Go talk
to a trained professional. You are seeing things his and my
conversation that just aren't there.

Last but not least ... your comment .... 'hilarious ding-bat
idea that the Islamic world specifically hated and
attacked the USA for the porn output of Holywood, very funny.'

YES, the Wahabbi terrorists absolutely did mention their
hate of Hollywood and that they see the garbage it spews
as a direct attack upon their lifestyle and religious way of
life. No where did I say that was the only reason for them
attacking. However, it was definately discussed in their
litany of complaints against the United States. My comment
was not 'hilarious' and it was not a 'ding-bat idea'. It
was the absolute truth.

Listening to BBC Talking Point program.

Most people around the world don't believe that there was much difference between Kerry or Bush, in terms of foreign policy.

A lot of worried Iranians out there now.

Explain the 35 million living in poverty .... perhaps it's because we give
away too much $$$ to other countries in aid. Bush just signed a
promise to Africa to give TRILLIONS of $$ in aid to fight AIDS. We
should have used it here instead. If we stopped giving so much to
other countries, and spent it on our own poor, I'm sure we would
have much less poverty here in America.


Perhaps if you spent the money you used to invade Iraq, you might have less poverty. As it stands, America is about 20th (ish) in the world in standards of living. Beaten by almost every European country. What country came top? Norway............ go figure..

And on topic, I wasn't surprised in the least but I didnt laugh, I just sat and stared. What I do find funny, is in this "Land of the Free", you are restricted in so many ways that you are not free at all.

You bash "Liberals" (I hate those labels), but you are supposed to be a free, hence liberal, country. Come to Europe/Australia/Japan to understand freedom.

In the UK, I am free to smoke pot, drink beer, look at porn. I have better healthcare, better education, a better democracy (i laughed at the post about America having the worlds #1 Democracy), better working conditions, more holidays, cleaner air and last but no means least, less fat women


Haha, this is the best post I've read in ages. We have to be careful though, things are still happening here in the UK that aren't being reported properly.

I like big women


But at least my women have teeth


and our beer tatses a LOT better


Thats fine yo can keep all that junk, you sold yourselves out to your government. I for one am not willing to do that yet.

And if you can't see the difference in size, population, and diversity between the UK, norway, etc. and that of my United States then your missing the largest point of all. We can't do things the way you guys do over there. WHat worked for you more than likely wouldn't work here.

Get what I'm trying to say.

Yes I have been to the UK before, thats how I know you can keep your beer
