can't say i hate you... however you do seem to have some jilted views on a couple of things.
Now i'm not sure how much you've actually seen of the UK, buht - i can't particularly say that the Americans are as well liked as they'd like to believe.
And if your going on the relationship of the governments, then i'd forget it because all the English politions are just stupid morons who never look at the big picture - which is why the economy is going down the tube and why they rely more and more on the EU and American nations.
They look into doing what will win them an election and if it doesn't then they think of a new way to BS the public and make it appear as if they're solving alot of problems when all they ever damn well do is create bigger problems for the future ... biggest right now is the Military Contractual Builders (e.g. BAe) and the Railway systems.
Given a chance, i can bet you a good million if Tony Blair thought it'd win the next election he'd bomb the states ... that is how stupid our government is!! (and trust me the choices aren't quite as simple and straight forward as the states governments cause there isn't a hell of alot they can do to screw things up quickly - although Mr. Bush is trying quite hard isn't he
The funny thing i feel is... is how americans seem to interpret their importance in the world, with phases suchas "oh we have the biggest armed forces"
well if you have the second largest and most rich nation in the world you can afford it, and it probably doesn't help that they very rarely see FRONT LINE combat - because £50 on the table says first to be sent in will either be a British or German force!
You want to stop teens and guys not blowing people away with guns, easi... take them away! you'll still get it, but it is unlikely anyone except crime syndicates will have them as if you impose an embargo kids can't afford black market prices and most stupid criminals won't be able to either!
it is far to easi to walk into a shop without a licence and purchase a deadly weapon, far far to easi - unless you're from a minority, like i dunno, Arab!
and i'm not just talkin about guns, i mean Katana blades - can slice through bone ... you don't even need a licence for one, just like go in say which one you want and bob's ya uncle!
If even guntax was raised to a price which made them overly expensive it would cut down on thier use because less people are likely to buy an expensive weapon!
Sexism is a prominant problem most with almost every Western countries, because adverts world wide pander to women ... you see and advert for a block and its like simple and to the point. Women ads they're made out to be super intelligent sucessful and have a background story.
Anyone seen those Tampax Mini or whatever the hell they are, where that guy things its a sugar packet... i mean HELLO!! what god aweful country sells suger in small cylinderial packets?? well possibly holland
Kinda sick to death though of hearing about Rasism from people that it has nothing to do with... seeing those people who play on this weakness the democratic system has with giving everyone a fair chance and in such making it extremely unfair ... and seeing americans thing everyone loves them.
Sorry but i mean most of ya'll are weird, ya'll think you won wars on ya own - when really there were 2 you were involved within, one of which you totally outnumbered the enemy and at the end of the day it was better to say fudge that than have our men be killed ... and the second you got your butts whooped so bad and shoved a powery tale about politics in the country.
Sorry but last time i checked when your at war with a country it doesn't matter what happens in thier government, you thought the land was yours went in and were slaughtered ran home with your tales between ya legs.
probably not a popular veiw, but i mean when the US broke free from England they caused themselves more trouble than they could handle ... one of which was the slaves.
If the states really wanted to learn they should have taken a page from thier ansestors, as the UK as a whole has had to accept ALOT of new people - was never dominated, but we've had all sorts here since recorded history in the country.
There is alot of bad bad water between all the nations of the actual UK ... but on the whole we all live quite happily together - possible exceptions of course here and there. For a small country and nation, hard to believe that at one point 100year past we own'd 40% of the world
for some ungodly reason the goverment keeps giving it all back to the actual nations
No more India, no more Aussie, no more South Africa, i mean geez next what do they wanna do give the north or england back to the Norwiegens?
sorry to rant but it piss's me off alot of whats going on with a nation that personally i have felt was and is the most remarkable for change.
Anata aru kowagaru no watashi!
