It doesn't look so great from this side of the boarder :wink:

You're here because you know something.
What you know you can't explain,
But you feel it;
You've felt it your entire life.
That there's something wrong with the world.
You don't know what it is, but it's there....
Like a splinter in your mind...
Driving you mad.

"It looks great from the outside. "

but once you come in you'll be a mass consumer and fattened up in 6 months for the harvest.

Annnnnnd I had a light saber and my friend was there and I said "you look like an indian" and he said "you look like satan" and he found a stick and a rock and he named the rock ooga booga and he named the stick Stick and we both thought that was pretty funny. We got eaten alive by mosquitos but didn't notice til the next day. I stepped on some glass while wading in the swamp and cut my foot open, didn't bother me til the next day either....yeah it was a good time, ended the night by buying some liquor for minors and drinking nips and going to he diner and eating chicken fingers, and then I went home and went to bed.---senior doobie

How true.

America only looks great from the outside if you're in an area where there is a lot of hardship, really. I mean, I'm sure there's plenty of Europeans and Canadians that think the U.S. sucks.

Think about it this way...

The only contact most of us outside the US have with you Americans is through one of two things:

1. Your government...

2. (much more often) Your media...


Take a look at both of these, and you should get a good picture of how you all appear to the rest of the world.

Yeah, I could see that. I mean, those of us that live here that are sane pretty much wholly dislike the government and the media, so...

I'm on the outside and i don't share that feeling. I believe most europeans either like it or don't like it, i think the latter has more followers though.

first of all..i dont think you can live and work in another country without the full blessing and support of some fascist global corporation..in which case you become an accessory to their agenda...second of all..the proud crowd has all but totally convinced me that bin laden is right..albeit for all the wrong reasons...

If this is some kind of riddle or something then I'm gonna take a stab at it...

Take the word "America". The outside of this word, that is, the first and last letters are both A's. Traditionally in our society, the letter "A" carries with it connotations of excellence or greatness: "You get an 'A' for effort". Now look at the letters on the inside, meric. Rearrange them and what do you get? CRIME.

If it's not a riddle, then this is a very stupid post.

well not so much anymore, and its getting dirtier.... People claim that within ten years or so this place will appear as an undesireable dump

Insert an "I think" mentally in front of eveything I say that seems sketchy, because I certainly don't KNOW much. Also; feel free to yell at me.

Thanks for the explanation, manna man (makes sense).

Oh, hell, maybe I stand alone on this but...
America is easily one of the greatest nations.

Bin Laden may well have been correct.

that should qualified with .."assuming he's not still working for the CIA"...
