^ It's probably legal in Texas to have a concealed weapon, I know it is in some states.

by the way my dear, sufficient cricket team deprived friend, might i add that the world cricket team has at least 5 aussies in it out of 11 people? and its skippered by ponting too...
Ignoring the cricket, which after the third test is a wise, wise idea, a Limey is a term given to British sailors in ye olde days, when before setting sail for the green, green grass of home, part of the ships crew would be sent out to find as much lime as possible for the journey, for the vitamin C helped them to avoid scurvy. They became "affectionately" known as limeys.

Noone can blame all of one country for anything I dont think... I know I havent thought that statement through well enough so someone is gonna come back in a bit and argue with that.. But this thread is just saying why you dont like the majority I guess? Or just the way its run mebbe.

I met a guy in summer from Texas who didn't know guns were illegal.
I have a hard time if you are gonna call this guy ignorant for this. While assault rifles are illegal, having a hunting rifle and such are not illegal. Sure you need a permit, but they are defenitely not illegal.

I can't argue with this because it is so broad. Be more specific por favor.

"sticking your noses in it" so to speak. unless of course the obvious misuse of power conundrum card is in play. but would it not be easier to eliminate a percentage of the debt owed to your country by whoever your producing aid for rather than just build upon the interest and forcing them into further debt by giving them money?
I see what you mean...but with the money we pour into these economies, are you to say that the politics in that country do not effect the economy? I have a hard time believing that. A lot of money we use helps supporting other countries militaries. When we need help in a military event, we often ask for help from these countries. Etc, etc. While I don't think it is a "We did this for you, you are in eternal debt" deal, I do believe that a country with as large of a national debt as we have, the amount of aid we give out, we want/get something in return. The "giving aid to further them in debt" part I do not understand though. Most of the money we give out...is just that, "given out". While we ask for favors in return, we don't ask for the money in return with compounded interest.

I love Thomas Paine. Nice touch. On the not founded on religious beliefs, I think in a way it was. There are references from most American documents of that time dealing with God.

The Declaration of Indendence: "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights"...."appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions"

I don't wanna talk about Vietnam.

So should the guy who invented cars be blamed for millions of car crashes each year? Should the man who invented missiles be blamed for the death of Iraqis. Obeisity is an issue of self control. I've never seen an American have McDonald's forced down his throat. Sure, advertising, blah blah blah...yes, it is conveniant. But anyone who eats properly, has self control, excercises, etc, can become a healthy person. I'm an American. I'm 6'4, 150 pounds. So send the fat jokes my way. And I hope the "no fat people in other countries" was an exaggeration trying to make your point.

I was being specific, without trying to pick on anyone in particular, but my sentenes at the top of the page were all linked.

On the guns for instance, yes there are exceptions with hunting permits, but without going into rare circumstances the guy, who was over 21 years of age, did not know that even other American states were not allowed to have unregistered weapons in their homes, never mind the rest of the world. I just found that scary.

And the whole spirit of the thread is pretty broad, surely? I don't hate everything about America nor do I hate everyone in it.

Acts like the rest of the world doesn't exist.

That's a broad ass statement. Like I don't think they help us? Like I don't believe in the map? That statement is not specific at all.

And no, you don't have to have a hunting permit to have a gun. That is incorrect. Guns can easily be purchased at your local wal-mart, given a month or so to do paperwork etc.

You are an idiot if you think you can't get a gun at wal-mart.
