Love to see the empirical data that proves that 'Everyone hates Americans,' and I don't have a dog in this race - I'm Scots - born and bred.

Seems to me it would take an idiot to blithely say that they 'hate' 340 million people, most of whom they haven't met.

JMHO. YMMV.

Hate's big business, foadi; it's right up there with fear. If you can't coerce the public into fearing and hating, peace might even break out (as opposed to war), and peace isn't good for the economy.

(Right now, think about the Ferguson riots.)

Gone are the days WAR is good for the economy..... it divides politically, it does not trickle down to manufacturing but for those who manufacture the weapons and few that support them and the military is always there now. THINK DEDICIT<<< Only maybe a ww3 would fully unite and lesson our other issues for survival and no one wants that??? None of us might make it?

British are known to be America's dearest friends You also share their language etc.

They should stop starting wars and stop spying. Maybe that would help

Well, I'm in favor of the cessation of all wars, Majurius, but for the record, Highland Scots don't share the language of the Sassenachs (English). We speak Gaelic. Can't say I've met a Scots spy yet, although we've had our share of them throughout history - mostly spying on the English and Romans - to keep them on their side of the walls, you understand.

pʲanˠəxks! (Blessings.)

War is always good for the economy; perhaps not the U.S. economy at this point in history, but even this mini conversation is making money for the real warmongers - who have their own, centuries old, political agenda.

We're already engaged in WW111, albeit at the beginning stages, but humankind will not become extinct. There are too many safeguards in place for that to happen.

On a public forum? Not on your life!

Read: The Creature from Jekyll Island; The Fourth Turning; The Captains and the Kings; Keys of this Blood; Behold a Pale Horse; and/or any one of my novels.

That should switch the light on for you.

By the way, the song was written in 2004.

We’re all living in Amerika
Amerika ist wunderbar
We’re all living in Amerika
Coca-Cola, sometimes war.(с)
