In a word yes it is hip to hate America; and to the people that do: use your History books boys and girls just about everything you believe in anti America; pro America has some sort of contradiction or lacks 100% solid facts.
it might be hip to hate america, see the list on page8...

but its so totally not hip to hate me!

Most people in the UK have no idea about Texas or even country music. All they think of is some old guys playing so slow maybe they'll die before the song is over, or maybe they have parents that listen to real old stuff. I listen to country music, it rocks, but what I listen to is more modern. And I agree with CurryADD Texas is a great place, I love it, can't wait to get back there, I miss it, it's home, its the greatest place to live.
People in the UK think Texans are all hicks, people in the UK think I am cause I talk southern like, but I aint no hick I live in the suburbans not the boonies.
I have met some folks who live in a one horse town out in west TX that are hicks. But folks who live in the metroplex area or Houston area, they are as normal as your meet.
Before you messs with Texas pay it a visit, and don't watch those stoopid progams on Channel4 in the UK about Texas they are a total miss representation.

I don't know if this post was a joke or not, but it made me laugh:

There are some really good reasons for people to be Anti-American:

1. The annoying spam e-mail which is always American
2. The way the American government polices the world
3. The way Tony Blair sucks up to America
4. American spelling
5. The way American companies have dominated the internet with spam
6. The way American programmes force Christianity upon people
7. The way Americanisms are spreading through the UK
8. Whatever we have, America has it 10 times bigger
9. July 4th - Independance from Britain day :mad:
10. Bill Gates and his shabby Windoze
11. The way Americans took the country from the indians
12. Their lack of knowledge when it comes to the "British" accent
13. The American accent (which a lot of people hate)
14. The obsession they have with Christianity
15. The way Americans treasure "freedom" like it's something new
16. The way faceless American companies have taken all the good domain names...
1. Nigerian 409 scam.
4. They can spell things how they like - its their language.
6. Yeah I remember this one time I watched friends and then Bang! I was made a Christian against my will. That really sucked.
8. Unemployment figures? I'd really hate america if they had 10x as many people unemployed as we did.
9. Fair play to them.
10. Alternative operating system suggestions? Or are you just going to **** off what for many people is the best operating system on the market.
14. I must have missed this one.
15. Yes, I don't think more people should take freedom for granted. TBH I'd love to live under a dictatorship. If it wasn't American intervention in WWII we could have been living under Nazi rule. God I hate those american *******s.
16. Are American companies not entitled to domain names?

Yeh, but all the decent scientists from that era were actually europeans who fled to america (nice and safe across the atlantic.)
The only decent american scientist before then was Edison, who wasn't as great as people made out, but invented the most disgusting system that survives today - whereby whoever is in charge of a lab will get the credit.
Him and his lab were very good though...

Several people probably have some decent reason to be sceptical to american politics and policies, but politicall corectness today is almost equivalent to antiamericanism. I am dead tiered of hearing people blaiming the US (and preferably Israel while they are at it) for everything that is wrong in the world.

All I hear over in Norway is how stupid Bush is, how the US started the war in Iraq just because of Oil (Russia on the other hand was of course not at all biased by the oil market when deciding to oppose the US), and how the US and Israel oppose the UN (meanwhile the UN condems Israels fence as if it was wan arsenal of WMDs ).
Bush is an *******, he should be more careful with pretzels.
