cybersinner: Someone needs to inform these fucktards that not all Americans are moralfags. I am American and I not only don't go to church, follow moral guidelines or try to force my beliefs on others but I could fucking care less what the rest of the world does. As for our "freedoms", maybe you hadn't noticed, but "W" stripped most of those freedoms from us and left us basically afraid of the Gov.
rock: It is not americans per se that gets up our collective noses,it is the assumption of moral superiosity .Particularly when the usa by its actions demonstrates an almost total lack of a moral compass of any kind?I sympathise with cybersinner to some extent "some of my best friends are americans"but the usa has enough nuclear weapons to terrify us all .
cybersinner: ^Believe me when I say that there are numerous actions that my country's gov. has taken taken I strongly disagree with. The Iraq invasion being first among them. It was an illegal invasion of a soveriegn nation without provocation. As for nukes, I think the world would be a better place without them. As for a moral compass, that all depends on who is defining the word "moral".
cybersinner: Remember that the Nazi Party considered the jews to be immoral. The communists considered free trade to be immoral. The catholic church deems just about everything immoral (except molesting choir boys, of course). As for me (a non-religious individual), I like to borrow a quote from the Bible, "Let he who is without sin cast the first stone." Defense rests, Your Honor. lol
rock: No one hasever doubted the wonderful liberateing spirit in the Jeffersonian ideal ?Have you ever read "Bound for Glory"story of Woody Guthrie?To me embodies all that is great in America.All you really need is a really big mirror
