Just a guess, but probably this part:

OH THE LULZ! You took that wayyyyyy too seriously.

I'm just not a "RAH RAH SIS BOOM BAH AMERICA AMERICA YAAAAAAAAY!" kinda person. I acknowledge our faults and have you not seen my posts of good things about the USA? I've said a) Seattle is awesome, b) America is a hotbed of innovation, c) America is extremely diverse and, on the whole, accepting of diversity, d) I wholeheartedly defend the idea of a Federal Union of ALL 50 states, even if I consider some to be mostly backwater.

Sheesh. Who pissed in your Wheaties this morning?

Its not, many parsts of NYC are very very dirty, subway is very dirty, many people just don't know how to clean up after themselves.

In any city, you will see some trash, etc. That goes without saying when you have 10 million people moving around all day.
A. The subways in NYC are a lot cleaner than they used to be.
B. It amazes me that you mention people in NYC don't "know how to clean up after themselves". It's a personal beef of mine because I happen to live on a busy street in Baltimore and am amazed by the nice "suburban" folks who fling crap out of their car windows for us to pick up. I am sure the same is true there.

I was careful to say many people instead of not all of the people in NYC for a reason. Furthermore, I mentioned NYC because I live here and thats the city I was talking about, not the suburbs. I know the city was dirtier years ago, I was here, doesn't mean its clean now. My point was it can be cleaner, because it can, but many people won't clean up after themselves even though they can.
