Things I donīt like about America...

Your politics

Your quick-fix attitude

Your arrogance (you donīt like us... oh you must be jelious)

Your love for guns

Your media

Your black and white type of thinking

Your hillbillys, rednecks and wannabe gangstas

Your ghettos, trailerparks, most religious people and homless people

Your midgets


Things I like about your country...

Your sports

Your music

Your movies (though I think the whole industry has been dumbed down just for your dumbass audience)

Your comedians

Most of the people

InsideHoops

...and all the other cool things


All in all cool country

Our politics, or the political positions of our leaders. The two things are very different.

The percentage of Americans that own guns isn't all that high.

You have a black and white type thinking about Americans.

Is something wrong with you?

The whole industry hasn't been dumbed down. A lot of dumb movies do come out, though.

yeah wtf. some european people have an american complex they are dealing with. people are people pretty much wherever you go. I've lived in Europe and there are dumb people, ghettos, and dumb movies there too. And 90% of the movies were made in America that release in the rest of the world so they are made for that audience too dumbass.

Whats up with people calling Americans ignorant while making arrogant generalizations themselves?
why dont you spend 5 or 10 years in our country before you make a judgement. thanks for basing your judgment about an entire country of 300 million people on a fricken random internet post buddy.

telling americans that they dont know anything just because they are americans or should go eat a few more cheeseburgers is just as nationalistic and rascist as the alleged attitude of the people you're directing your hate against.

final.wrath, where did I say other countrys doesnīt have those problems too? You seem to take it personaly when someone tells you things they donīt like the place you live in. If there was a thread "things you donīt like about...*some random country*" there would be lots of same things I donīt like about US. American ghettos are nothing compared to ghettos in Africa or some latin countrys. The thing that gets me about your ghettos etc. is the wealth of your coutry and the differnce between rich and poor. It just... wrong. You can have pride for your country without thinking everything that there is the shyt just because you were born there.

It was dumb thing to say that movie industry has been dumbed down for your audiance. Itīs really been dumbed down because of the money. I like your movies, 50% of the movies I watch are americans. It was on the list I like about your country. The variety of movies you produce is so broad that you can pick and choose the type of movies you want to see and expect quality product. Same thing with music. Thatīs not the case in lots of other countrys. But sometimes some silly shyt happens in a movie and I canīt help myself thinking "typical american bullshyt" and imaging americans giving each other highfives

You know, you are the Kobe Bryant of countrys. The star that others would love to see fail. You claim that youīre humble but your actions speak otherwise. Lots of two-faced stuff going on and itīs on the public figures that represet your country that people see every day. Thatīs just the way it is.

Iīm just commenting on what I think about your country. I really donīt have strong feelings either way.

Ok, honestly, America itself is a good place....they are great...just some things the pres does kinda ticks me off....but what other country doesn't do the same? the only reason why america gets bashed more often is because they do it on a grand level. And that is the part where it gets me. Some things should be thought through a little more. But I still would rather live here in canada. Just my opinion on the matter...
