80s-90s music rocked!!!

what about brit pop at that time? It was brilliant

Blur, Oasis, and even Radiohead (though i doubt it could be called "brit pop") were miles ahead of the so called "brit pop" today.

I'm honestly no expert, but i think it really depends what part of the country you are. small and local businesses seem to become more popular.

I also miss the lack of reality tv shows, like when MTV actually played music videos and not shows about pregnant teenagers

See, even today, a lot of music of those times is popular today, but it is now called classic. Perturbation, scooters, Depishmota, Sandra and many others it was more for my heart. Today, most of the music seems written just for the money. But, thanks to New York for rap. I like this kind of music, in any language.Recently went to the theater to music on saxophone, there were many works of American, Brazilian composers it was excellent!

Do they have anything like "the Pledge of Allegiance" in other countries?

When i was in elementary school, we stood up everyday put our hand on our hearts and pledged to the classroom flag... we werent forced to do it but still looking back it seems kind of crazy.

today im not sure they still do it but it still just creeps me out

I think of good people with generally strong moral foundational and community values subject to a malignant and increasingly authoritarian government. This is why, despite some concerns, my sympathies lie with the libertarian movement, and right-of-centre politics in the USA.

I think they are treated unfairly in their media portrayals by the rest of the world, notably on the point of intelligence and academic ability. I personally find undergraduate level US students to be somewhat behind their European peers, but their postgraduate trainees to be marginally ahead, at least in the scientific specialties (neurobiology/neurophysiology) I trained in.

As a former atheist based in the UK, I admire the fact that they still maintain a strong demographic in favour of Christian values at a time in which it is subject to a barrage of increasingly negative media bias; in most cases by the theologically ignorant, the philosophically illiterate, and the generally inept.

The difference is, probably, that if you go to an argentinian forum and say the things you think are bad with arg, you wont have ANYONE acusse you of doing that out of "jealousy" (LOL), cause no argentinian in their right mind would think anyone could be jealous of argentina (LOL). And if they did, they would be called insane by the rest of the people.

I get that US is much more important than Arg and probably better in many aspects, and its a number 1 country, a cultural empire, etc, but i dont see people from england, or from France, having that way over the top attitude about THEIR countries, wich are also important. I never read an english person saying the people from other countries were "lesser people" than them and being congratulated by it.
Maybe some people think that, but no one would say it. Its very tacky and bad taste and i dont understand how americans think going everywhere saying your country is the best isnt ridiculous. Cause it makes you look ridiculous, honestly.

I actually know many people who love the so called "laid back" latin american culture, good weather, beautiful women (thats just what i hear, idk if any of that is true). Argentina does look like a nice place, has the diverse landscape like China, USA, Russia, etc...

Americans have always been the most enterprising people in the world. I think it's very good for the people and the country as a whole, as people are dependent on their work. In Russia, too, is very common small and medium business. Frankly anyone who wants to depend only on himself engaged business. Yes, of course I think you're right. Much depends on the business and financial areas, and place of residence. I have been building business and quite successfully. I have no idea where you can still earn so much money. if not for construction. building always is and will be, so it is a promising area, like medicine. The most interesting thing that you are doing their favorite thing..
