I'm not, these things have a way of sneaking into a thread and rarely happen at the start of a thread. Besides, the people who are not from the US were probably sleeping when you posted the thread.

I Love America because-

The variety of resturants...
The variety of music...
The variety of culture

The advancement of technology
The advancement of medicine
The advancement of humanity

I love America because of Hooters Resturants..

Thank you Wanderer.
Salome-
Your predictable attitude and comments are not needed in this thread.

what did I say that was so wrong this time?

the main reason I was curious is because we have had threads like this before, so starting one expecting that it will be trashed doesn't make too much sense to me (even though nothing bad has been said yet and I doubt that this will happen)

if you think you know a thread (that has been done before) will end up all ugly then the only reason I can think of for still going ahead and starting it would be that you want people to start negative comments so that you can say they are wrong (even though one's views of the U.S. are a personal opinion and not a fact that can be wrong or righ, though misguided could be an option) knowing that - at least in this particular thread - there will definitely be plenty of people to cheer you on and accuse the people who don't agree of predictable responses (though Diamond accusing me of being predictable at least causes me to smile)

but since it seems to be almost unanimous that I'm a total nut anyway I guess it's all just me

Since this is a real peaceful thread, I may add something:
I like America for its past showbiz.
Fred Astaire, Ginger Rogers, Danny Kaye, whoever: they all posessed such a great style that you might think it was reflecting how America was way back when. I also have fresh examples: I remember watching the first big Sept11 concert. It struck me how well the show was organized.
I may also say I donīt like the showbiz today - especially the music industry is in a bad state. Diamond, the variety of music - was that meant to be cynical (if I had heard that 20 years ago, ok... and btw, no one, neither Europe, has pushed the advancement of humanity... the advancement of medicine - oh yeah, bio weapons you mean)?
Anyway, I really like hamburgers. But only the real ones, you know, they serve them in real restaurants with salad bars and real milkshakes, not at McDonalds. I like Ketchup. Then, I like New York for its diversity.
Letīs see... what else makes America unique?
When I was a child, I loved Greyhound buses (around 25 years ago, when service was still in their vocabulary).
I love New Orleans, where music still has a place.
And a real car is an American car (ok, Ferraris and Maseratis also count, but compare an old Ford or Continental with one of those lilī japanese plastic surgery models).
So then, I like belle Michelle. And Prince. And loads of other Americans. All of that doesnīt make the U.S. a better dictatorship (or call it fake democracy), but I have to admit America also created some cool stuff.
Cheers there!

I don'think that necessarily meant that Arun V thought this would be a controversial thread when he started it; it was probably an afterthought. Judging the spirit of his post, I don't think he intended it to start a fight about it at all.

Well I'm not American but I love the fact that I have so many American Interference friends

And I'm sure that it's just like Canada and alot of other democratic countries out there in that it's a peaceful, giving place to live.

Hiphop-you are funny and had good responses.
No, I wasnt being too cynical.

Raf-That was a good one.

Salome-It would just be nice if people followed the Spirit of the thread,ie-"appreciation of America" as the author wished.

I love America because of-
Harley
Davidsons.
