I personally believe there is more people from outside the United States expressing their stupid stereotypes about the USA then vice versa.

I know or have seen zero Americans trying to shove the UK's problems down British peoples throat and tell them they are brainwashed nationalist idiots when they defend their country. i do see this attitude towards the UK from other nationalities however.

and no i don't dislike European countries or any country. i'm actually pretty open-minded and cultured, more so than a lot of these hipsters who call themselves "cultured" and "open minded" even though they show high allegiance only to Western Europe and have a strong dislike towards anything American, British, Russian and Chinese.
Man, come on, your entire username on this forum is dedicated to just quoting someone's criticisms (valid or not) and offering no proper counter other than something along the lines of 'what's wrong with being car dependent?' or 'who cares if we want to carry guns?, or 'It's none of your business.'. Well, yes actually, it's a discussion and people are allowed to throw their opinions around. You have to actually drum up some sort of structured opinion or insight instead of just passing everything off as an unfounded attack on American culture.

Culturally significant countries (USA and UK) get the most criticism.

Is that not the truth?

As for his gun argument… I'd say it is other countries business. Where do you think all the illegal guns come from in Canada and Mexico.

Hey man i'm just a very curious person.

Imagine if i went to the Europe forum asking why they don't build huge freeways, get the government out of their healthcare and buy more pickup trucks when i am pretty sure most of them are happy without those things and that it doesn't really bother me that there isn't large medians and large shoulders on most of their motorways.

X2. We have vacationed there for a week at a time while snowbirding in the southwest or Florida. Love the place with it's charming old architecture and square with artists and musicians all ready to entertain you. Park the car and forget it for the entire week to walk to fine dining and atttractions.

Our favourite old B&B is the old Lafitte Guest House on the corner of Bourbon and St. Philip St. with it's authentic old bedrooms and balconies overlooking Bourbon. Love it there.

Bourbon street can get pretty dangerous too. Better watch yourself next time, don't get hit by stray bullets.
