    Some of the backward-ass people
    Fox News
    How much politics and big money are intertwined
    Guns are legal
    All the obese people (though, not a ton where I live)
    The Deep South
    The hicks (aka chavs)
    Crime rate
    Much of our foreign policy
    Sexism, racism, homophobia, etc.
    I am not American but I certainly agree with your dislike of Fox News! They are aweful!

    Wales - The welsh language, everywhere. I have lived in Wales all my life, and when I see 'ARAF' on the roads, it never occurs to me to slow down.
    I never know what number of cashier I'm meant to go to in Boots before they read it out in English.
    I always miss the information on signposts because it's welsh alternative makes it crowded.

    I'm pretty sure there is no-one left in Wales that speaks Welsh exclusively, so they should really stop trying to revive a dying language.

    And the stereotype that we fiddle with sheep.
    There are Mainly older people in the North though. May I ask why you feel so strongly about the language?

    If you visit the Welsh Society forum, there's a long paragraph about why I resent the language
