Never. Especially with the idiot that we have running this country. Plus, a lot of Americans tend to think that they are superior to everyone else and don't understand why the rest of the world don't believe in the same things we do or do exactly what we do. I hate that so much.

You should start reading from the beginning of the sentence, "Plus, a lot of...." and you'll understand

I did read from the beginning of the sentence. O:) and I understand what she meant of a lot of Americans tend to think that they are superior to everyone else.. but what is a little bit dark for me... when she asked.. why the rest of the world don`t believe in the same things the Americans do or do exactly what they do?.. I mean.. what excatly the Americans belive in? is it that they superior to everyone else?! so, she wonders why don`t we believe in that?!!!

Oii...
But what Tracylynn said seems to be the view other countries take on America: Americans thinking themselves superior. Its interesting to hear this coming from an American though :?
I can't believe George Bush is... what he is. He seems to be the only one at the G8 summits who refuses to sign the important stuff and pledge America to stopping climate change and all that. As soon as Bush is gone, I think the state of American relations will get a hell of a lot better tbh.
I dunno, I don't know much about politics :P
What does the outside world think of Tony Blair? I don't really get an idea, being British and all.

my exams this semester start at the 17th of next month and the last one is on 8th of August. But unfortunately I have a scientific project running that needs my lots of my attention in the semester break, therefore I don't have any special plans for this year. :roll:

Not to start any fighting on this board but let me try to explain what I had said earlier. I know what I say might be offensive or some don't understand it since I'm an American, but I'm just saying it because this is what I have learned from living here and from traveling.

When I said that Americans don't understand why folks don't believe in the same thing as we do, what I meant by that is that Americans tend to think that the rest of the world should think about freedom and what it means. What I mean by freedom is how equal everyone is treated and such, can you speak your mind freely, and so on. We want everyone else to think the same as we do but if you examine us closely then you will see that we're a bunch of hypocrites.

First of all, we're supposed to have freedom of speech but yet we get so upset when someone says something so un-PC. Some things may not sound nice but under the Constitution one has to right to say those things.

Secondly, we're not equal in this country. There's still a lot of discrimination going on. As they say, if you're not a rich white man than nothing is going to be easy for you. No matter how hard we try to break down the barriers, some folks won't change their ways.

Thirdly, we're a country that consumes the most and we also have, if not the highest then one of the highest, crime rates. With all the violence that we have, people think guns are the answer. We're a violent country.

That is just a few things. Not all Americans are like that. Some do tend to observe the world around them and learn and see that we have problems. Not to say that this is a bad country because it's not. It has problems just like everyone else though most folks want to ignore 'em.

A few interesting tidbits...when France didn't support Bush's decision to go to war, a lot of folks, and I do mean a lot, got upset. So upset that instead of saying French fries, you had to say freedom fries. Anything that had the word "french" in it had to be changed to "freedom." I, for one, still said french fries because that's not a creation of France.


Ok. Now to a more pleasant things....
