I went to school in Apopka, Orange County, Florida for a while, and it was quite "special". First of all I had classes like American History and Geography, American Literature and even American Culture (for all the "immigrants" in school, as part of a new integration thing. We learnt about American values and such). And in history, I was once sent out of class for saying Columbus wasn't the first to discover America, lol.
funny...my sixth grade teachers drilled into my mind that columbus was a raper, murderer, enslaver and a right horrible person!

Turkey isn't European. It sort of sits geographically between Europe and Asia.

Culturally speaking the Turks don't have much in common with the remainder if Europe. For a start, they are Muslim (albeit fairly secular) whereas the rest of Europe is Christian.

And of course, they are not members of the EU, and they won't be joining next May with Poland and everyone else because they have a human rights record that stinks.......real bad.

Turkey, European? Sure.......

There's been a recent pool in Spain, and americans are the worst appreciated, together with moorish (see latest editions of El Pais or El Mundo) Here in Spain we considerate american people as dummies, without any respect for human life and human thoughts, they don't even know where Spain is located, they think it is in South America... The standard american is fat, with a nil knowledge in general culture, just like Homer Simpson.
I hate you, just like all the people here, and we expect the fall of the US Empire, and the recovery of World's Peace.
What have you obtained from Irak, apart from petroleum contracts?
You don't care about irak people, you don't know their history, culture, traditions... But you don't know anything about the world in general, you're only interested in you. But all the empires have been beaten, just give us some time

**** USA, up with UK!

excuse me? americans are not dumb. americans are smart intelligent people just like everyine else. we do not have a bad human rights record, the bill of rights protects every citizen living under it. the standard american is fat? that would be the minority of the population, we do have a general knowledge about culture, and we are not like homer simpson. we did not want petroleum from iraq, and we do know something of its culture.....we do know things about the world and general, and most do think spain is in europe. i. e, right next to portugal, get some facts buddi before you go spouting off anti americanism! it might help your case....

WHAT ABOUT GUANTANAMO???
VIETNAM??? ¿WHAT WAS THE REAL INTEREST IN THAT ASIAN COUNTRY?
TO FIGHT SOCIALISM FROM RUSSIA, NO MATTER HOW MANY INOCENTS KILLED AND FAMILIES DESTROYED, YOU HAD TO SELL MORE PRODUCTS IN ASIA, AND YOUR CAPITALISM SYSTEM SYSTEM DEMANDED A WAR THERE!!!
IT IS ALWAYS THE SAME, DON'T YOU SEE THAT??? HOW CAN YOU SUPPORT THE AMERICAN WAY OF LIFE, BASED IN EXPLOITATION AND SUFFERING IN THE COUNTRIES THAT DON'T AGREE WITH YOUR POINT OF VIEW, TO SET OUT A MAC DONALDS OR A BURGER KING IN A POST-DEVASTATED COUNTRY? DO YOU THINK SPANIARDS NEED FAST **** FOOD FROM YOU? WE HAVE AN GREAT CULINARY TRADITION, WE DON'T NEED THAT ****.
wHAT HAS HAPPENED IN MANY COUNTRIES OF SOUTH AMERICA, WHERE PRESIDENTS LEGALLY ELECTED HAVE BEEN DISMISSED BY THE US BECAUSE THEY WERE ANTI-CAPITALISM??? (SEE PANAMA, HONDURAS OR CUBA)

yOU'RE BLIND, JUST AS YOUR PEOPLE ARE AS WELL

YOU DON'T HAVE THE RIGHT TO DECIDE IN WHAT WAY A COUNTRY WANTS TO LIVE

but we dont decide, our government does.....and its not our fault that mcdonalds is in your country, apparently some people like fast food. we are not stupid or ignorant! nor are we like homer simpson. i do not agree with guantanamo bay, i dont agree with vietnam, and i do not agree with the fact that we went into iraq based on a WMD basis. but to say that we are all ignorant is uncorrect, and i do not appreciate it. i for one, do not even watch the simpsons, it sugests that you do when you say we are all like that.....now who is being stereotypical? no we did not go into iraq for oil! i would know, my father works for an oil company. you are just as, if not more ignorant than american culture than anyone else i know. i support the american way of life, because i am american. i love being american. capatalistic is preferable to socailism in america because companies cannot operate with their hands tied behind their back. as i have proven, i am not stupid, i do indeed know where spain is, and i am not ignorant, i know what is going on the world. i suggest you take YOUR head out of the sand to gather information on what the american people are really like!

YOU USE YOUR MILITARY SUPERIORITY TO IMPOSE YOUR ECONOMIC SYSTEM, IN ASIA, AFRICA, SOUTHAMERICA, AND THANKS GOOD HERE IN EUROPE IS NOT NECCESSARY BECAUSE WE ARE IN FACT CAPITALIST. I WORK IN AN AUDIT FIRM, ONE OF THE BIG FOUR, MY COMPANY IS AMERICAN, I LOVE AMERICAN STYLE OF WORKING, BUT I WON'T SUPPORT THE WAY YOU IMPOSE THIS SYSTEM TO OTHER COUNTRIES, BECAUSE THE OTHER COUNTRIES HAVE THE RIGHT TO DECIDE WETHER TO ACCEPT IT OR NOT.

IN CONCLUSION, I DON'T BELIEVE THAT ANY AMERICAN ******* CAN FEEL PROUD ABOUT US MILITARY POWER, BECAUSE THEY'RE SIMPLY KILLERS, THEY ARE THE EXECUTIVE POWER (WHERE ARE THE OTHER TWO POWERS???)

both my parents were in the navy, if you want sympathies about how big and bad our military is, your not gonna get it from me. americans are not *******s, everyone has a father! my parents are not killers, they have never killed anyone. the military personalle are not killers, they simply do what they are told. and the spainish are in iraq as well! surely you knew that? i bet you do love the american way of working, thats why you said we were all stupid and ignorant, and acted like homer simpson. what you are basing your arguments off of, is stereotypes.....and no, spain, just like the rest of the EU is socailist. the military is NOT an executive power.....it is legislative....

im going to swim practice.....peace out
