Can I declare this thread officially closed? I know it's been done before!

Isa is right - this thread has been turned into a nasty game of one-upmanship, insult slinging, and general not-niceness. The spirit of tolerance is very much at the heart of TP - heck, look at how many countries we come from!

The people here are ambassadors for our countries, and we are more than willing to talk about the good and bad points of our homelands. But we certainly don't deserve to become whipping posts for things other people don't agree with! There's nothing "wrong" about not liking the US or its politics or TV shows or actors or whatever - but there is something terribly wrong about blaming anyone here for what you don't like!

OK, I'll put this wounded cow out of its misery. This whole thread is terrible - it's brought out the worst in us.

The End.

hello,

I'm sorry I'm posting. Just while reading this, I thought of something that I know that no one else has who has posted. I decided to just post it.

chris013, if you are venting, I understand, because I have been accused of Anti-americanism myself before by Americans, but I am so not an Anti-american, and I do respect them in some ways .. . some things do drive me bananas, tho. Well, we do not intend to hit each other in Canada, so why don't you move here, instead? More multi-cultural; just do not work on the ski hills with a WHV, unless it is at a front desk. I'd as soon rent a few cult flicks to bash some icing - Natural Born Killers, Hell, why not 'i love lucy". Will Smith wouldn't bash someone's head in any sooner than the twisted father. I hope you know more psychology, chris013, than mere socail work, because this was just an a**hole. What are you trying to escape? You'll escape nearly everything in Canada, unless you are that inbred. (I'm referring to no one in specifics.) Hopefully, you do understand what I am saying?

About being in the army, Who the piss cares ?! Unless you want to be [misdirected by the President of the U.S.], why would you join? You can't drive a tank through a hospital Emergency entrance, so what is the point? The point, I guess, would be to use those skills in a skilled trade in America; apply those skills to apprentice or work in a trade...

Peace,
Steph

Why would someone who doesn't like America, Americans, American youth, etc. want to move to AMERICA??? That I don't get. This guy must be really desperate or confused or both.

I am all for free speech, and saying what you feel. I just don't get the impression that even chris knows what he feels. In one post he loves America, in the next he hates it. He talks nice in one post, rants in the next. Baits people in the chat and on the board. I don't care where he is from....America, Canada, Timbucktu... if he were my own child I would be embarrassed by him. Period. I don't tolerate that kind of behavior in my children. My feelings are...it takes all kinds. Some of my best friends are from other countries, but some of the most ignorant people I've ever met where from other countries also. There are all kinds...of each nationality. I do NOT judge a country on a single individual, group, religion or sex. It is a case by case thing.
I truly hope chris gets all the help he needs, in every sense of the word.
