    Yes, and many more are embarrassed to live in the United States.

    Twenty years ago we were treated as special because we were from "america". Now when we are in a foreign country we are very careful about telling locals that we are from the usOFa.
    From Canada, eh?

    Sad, very sad to have to lie about your birthplace.

    In my opinion people like to do whats popular, including our friends across the ocean. And right now, its very popular to hate America, and that leaves us Americaners looking very unpopular. Does that mean I am going to up and move to Canada? Nope. Frankly I have never cared too much about what is popular, the mob is fickle, and next month it will be everyone hating the USSR or Germany or Turkey for some popular reason.

    See the common denominator?

    JRO, Questions for you; What about your health-care and your retirement?
    Working conditions? Vacation?
    A lot of the people from abroad that are critical of the usOFa are from countries that beat the usOFa in everyone of the above areas.

    All of my postings are about WE and not I.

    Most people hate who is on top. Jokes on them, you guys have a better economy, military, and believe me, you have more tv channels than Australia (you also make the best tv shows and movies). Last time I checked (about a minute ago), there is only five stations here in Australia. Although it is in PAL-HD Digital, 5 channels is very disheartening.

    It ain't so Beez, Many countries have better standard of living than the usOFa. Military? Well, we have (up until this morning at least) an all volunteer military.
    Our volunteers are having trouble coping with the tech of the "modern" military. The guys/gals signing up don't have the education background to allow them to do the job. The warriors that are good, leave for the civilian world. The toys that our military uses are very good, but other countries have toys as good and some time even better. And I guess that the "quality" of our killing machine, tech or human, is not anything to brag about.

    How about our education system? Our research and development achievements? The music, writers, artist? We have some, a lot, of things to offer the world but our economic model is one of them. Our killing machine isn't either!

    When we lived in China, I would tell the students the difference between China and the usOFa was; In China the government tells the people what to do. In America the people tell the government what to do! Of course that was 1998/99 and now it isn't true. Sad.

    Man you all need to get out more :P A /. poll of anything is usless. If you want to really figure out whats going on you better do quite a bit more reading outside of your comfort zone. Do any of you know that the most of media outside of the US has a huge anti US bias. That people outside of the US in many cases are even less enlighented than the average joe sixpack many love to put down as stupid?

    The US isn't Europe, it's the US and we often have done things differently and think very differently. It's what makes us the US and not some place else. It's time for all internationalist socialists to grow up and get on with life that meme is getting old.
