I picked the United States, because of the pacific northwest and New York music scene, but Canada and Australia have some pretty awesome bands too.

Churchill would have been nothing without his parents, but he was still a greater person. The influences are not necessarily better than what they influence and vice versa.

and music wouldn't exist without Folk and classical blah blah blah. Just because we were highly influenced by stateside music doesn't automatically mean that American music is the default by which all other music should be judged. Britain is smaller than a few states in America but look how much has come out of this tiny isle and that always seems to be forgotten in these arguments.

You can ask the Kurds in Iraq how great a person Churchill really was.

Probably because it has nothing to do with the actual conversation.
