    Whats going on?

    I know I have not posted much of late. But I do stop by and read. I cannot believe all the American bashing. By some who I thought were my friends. You people are running around doing the things that you are accusing us of. Mostly being silly and infantile. I know we are not perfect. But if I were to run around and make gross over generalizations.

    The other day I was at the bar some Aussie came in already pissesd had, a few beers and tried to walk out without paying. Then got in a fight with the bar manager and hit her and took off.

    Does that make all Aussies like that?

    Same bar about a month ago I meet a couple English bloke. One was really nice the other one a complete ass.

    Does that make 50% of the English asses?

    Most of us are pretty decent sure there are some who are complete asses.
    And we all know politics is a dirty business look at your own are they perfect.

    So why do you keep going on about Americans this Americans that? Because just maybe we will start to believe we are who you say we are.

    Then what would you do?
    Don't under estimate the power of stupid people in large groups!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I am guilty of Yank bashing also but have stepped back a bit since I have a couple of good friends on the forum I met this year who are Seppos... I must admit I have noticed an increase in the bashing very recently and I think this is a just thread.

    Maybe if a person or a nation exudes too much confidence they tend to attract a lot of shit from those who perhaps do not, just a theory.

    Well statistically 50% are female, so the other 50% are most likely woofters.

    It's only the feeble and helpless, calling out to he heard, to have an audience for once in their life -- and to be roundly ignored and laughed at.

    When I do bash Merkins or Thais, I am usually feeling insecure or hungover and grumpy. I was going to do a thread about the audacity of American English based on a 2003 teaching experience which left me red faced because I didn't know what a faucet was. I was furious, and it still irks me - but i'll post it in the teaching forum when I'm in a good mood otherwise it will be a bashing thread and then i'll feel guilty next time I ring Texpat for a beer when I'm upcountry.

    Actually, I give England a much harder beating than I ever have the US.

    Some people seem to be unable to seperate criticism of the US Govt. and foreign policy from criticism of Americans as people in general. And even then a few of these also seem unable or unwilling to accept that there can be such a thing as legitimate criticisms made.

    Nationality bashing is usually for lesser-educated people.

    What I often wonder is this:

    How do non-American "picture" the "average" American in their mind?

    My great-great grandparents came from Germany and the Ukraine. My great-greatgrand dad joined the Navy and fought in the Boxer rebellion in China to secure his and his family citizenship. So its not like my family came from England with the Pilgrims and shit.

    Is it the 1st or second generation immigrants that have come to live the American dream...the former residents of Vietnam, Cuba, Burma, Russia or even Thailand?

    Is it the Mexicans that live both legally and otherwise? Is it the decendants of slaves or the decendants of slave owners that you picture?

    Something for those of you who happen to be non-sepphos to think about.

    America bashing is nothing new.
    I've been seeing it most my life.
    I witnessed the myopic euro disdain of the US when I first started traveling to Europe at 8 years old. Admittedly Americans were generally loud obnoxious provincial brutes.
    But that's not really the case anymore. Now it's mostly sour grapes on behalf of disgruntled euro-nazis.

    "You're", Noodles... You're.

    Now then, are you speaking for the entire forum or just yourself and your legion of trolling logins that you create to play childish games, deliberately antagonise, and otherwise intentionally make a nuisance of yourself on TD?

    What? It's a fair question is it not? If Elton John called me queer I'd want to know what or who it was in relation to, same thing here.

    ^ But those are the ones who make Ant post the way he does. If you don't bite you ain't gonna be fed, and that applies to both of you.

    As a self-professed troll your plaintive cries that someone else is trying to trash the form are quite funny. Just how many of your multiple logins have been jailed now anyways Noodles?

    And you could of course simply use the ignore button instead of stalking me around the forum with your gaggle of mates and trying to get rid of anyone you don't like; or even go back to posting on TV, oh wait no, you were banned from there for multiple nicks and stalking weren't you.
