For the USA the south is really no different from the rest of the country.

All over the USA you run into "hate sheep" who are just crab asses who go around hating on people for no really good reason except cause everyone else hates them, when talking politics Conservatives and Libertarians will compare Barack Obama to Hitler with a straight face. (its not just a southern thing). Liberals are pretty chill. Those hate sheep who don't care about politics just hate successful rich people like Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus and Kim Kardashian.

I rarely hear it used in a discussion involving two or more mentally balanced, rational individuals.
Calling Harper anti-science has nothing to do with atheism and is only somewhat about environmentalism. It's a bit complicated, but it comes down to muzzling federal scientists if their findings wouldn't be helpful to a government agenda and demanding federal censors chaperone them when they speak to the media, redirecting most funding from basic research to research that partners with companies trying to create marketable products, scrapping the position of national science advisor, gutting federally funded environmental research programs like the world famous and unique Experimental Lakes Area because it works against his government's main agenda of expanding the oil sands project, scrapping the national science advisor, scrapping the mandatory long form census, replacing the head of statistics Canada with a party toddy who's job is basically to spin things for the party's favour, and drastically cutting scientific oversight of industrial operations in areas like food safety. He also generally favours an ideological decision making strategy rather then one based on looking at evidence and deciding from there.

In the USA, because of what their actions are doing to the well being of the country, I can easily write:

Barack Hussein Obama (universal ineptitude)
Nancy Pelosi (simple stupidity)
Harry Reid (see Pelosi)

ALL OF HIS CABINET AND FORTY OR FIFTY CZARS.

It's always the current president, in every country. In America right now, it is Obama, which says more about human nature and the American people than about Obama. The world is experiencing a rising tide of hatred and fear, but people have no idea whom to blame, and just waits for the mass media to tell them whom to hate.

I agree completely about the media part, but is the world really experiencing a rise in hatred and fear? If we look at history, humans have been driven by hatred and fear.. perhaps on even larger scales.
