I like it when I can make it through a day where I don't read about or see on tv how fantastic we are.

Ditto. Bragging the way some do about this country is rather sinful.

Nice way to try and redirect my statement or fabricate something out of thin air.. You Know what I was referring to..

I like your inclusion of 'Hey Buddy', It reminds me of ... ah well, It made me laugh.

I find it highly amusing that the major ad i see on tv that praises Australia is for a type of beer most Australians hate.

One of my quirky goals in life is to find an Australian that actually LIKES Fosters. So far, I have had zero luck.

Personally...I dont' care if ppl don't like the thread. Sinful is hardly the word, America day in and day out gets bashed in this forum when I HIGHLY doubt any other countries in the same position as the US would act differently.

If you dont like the thread..don't post in it jeez..I'm a product of the american educational system and even i know that

I love the country you're from too! So warm and....yeah!

I do love America, and I have yet to find the most accurate wording to describe my love for it, so I love America will have to be it this time.

Hahah.. Yes, You're fully entitled to that, however, Do you mean to say that you hate our freedom, our liberties, and the opportunity to do practically anything you want/ say anything on your mind every day without having a Machete shoved down your gall bladder?

Err, no...but there's many countries that enjoy the same freedoms as yours (European ones, my own) and I don't hate those governments. Moot point, I'm afraid.

Don't forget it was the "people" who brought about those democratic changes...whether France, United States, etc...
