No. Now why would you feel the need to discriminate against Americans?

The reasons that you despise america are flawed, bottom line.
The point is that I may despise China too and I would talk about that in another thread entitled "Do you hate the Chinese?" I understand the points about political correctness though, it would be very unpopular to start such a thread about China.

It's kind of hard for anyone to claim they hate a WHOLE nation. America's a pretty big place. so, no, i dont hate americans. sometimes i hate certain americans, and sometimes i hate what some americans represent.

I don't like Bush by any standards, but I think that energy is wasted by complaining about him. We should be focusing more on what to change, rather than who to change.

That's because Canada was where all of the loyalists moved to... :rolleyes:

And all of our *crazy* ideas, like the Rights of Man and the idea that citizens should be able to participate in their own government... What a bunch of flakes! :rolleyes:
Tom Paine was an Englishman, the American Independence owes alot to British free thinkers.

No man chooses his birthplace.

I was more incensed at the accusations made by the poster to whom I was originally replying. Whilst I abhor those small-minded individuals who would belittle the American Independence movement, I maintain a great deal of gratitude for the ideas behind it having been created by some very outstanding individuals of British descent.

Well, we were discussing independence initially, so the comments were only really meant to be demonstrative of America's ties to Britain. If we're going to start listing off every group that America is indebted to, the seeming immortality of this thread is assured.

And, considering that the French used America has a testing grounds for democracy before they had the intestinal fortitude to go for it themselves, I'd call us even, anyway.

Actually, we don't mind at all, as Lafeyette and co were the "good ol days".

Especially when compared to these current Du Vellepin days..... :eek:

Hopefully someone rational like Sarkozy will be the next Prime Minister....

I really think you have the wrong idea when it comes to US treatment of the french. The worst we end up doing is silly jokes, things that have no trade relevance or otherwise. (freedom fries in no other place but the white house cafeteria)

The french media is the one that generally persists in hype against the "hyperpower"....why? Probably becuase it sells more papers....

I really wouldn't quantify calling a politician "dopey" as "full of hatred". :confused:

If that was the case, and most of TSR though Bush was "dopey", then they would be "full of hatred".....

I can't 'hate' a country, there are circa 280 million Americans, How can I hate them all??? Having been to American, I love it, the people are much more friendly and polite than the miserable UK.

We need to look at the state of our own country, which is crumbling before our very eyes.

You're right, they are usually on the receiving end of our jokes... fortunately enough for them.. we make fun of blue-collar rednecks(our own citizens)...and blondes... more than we do the french.

For or against bush?.... And yes, if calling someone "dopey" constitutes 'hatred' then most of TSR is full of hatred.. just look at the posts on the thread I started back in election days.."Who Would You Rather See Win The Presidential Election?" Check it..people are so pissed.. it's their nature.
