I'm not commenting on American stupidity, we Brits have no basis to speak from on that score. What gets me is the arrogance of the yanks in ignoring the rest of the world. I have american friends who love coming over here to the UK and elsewhere (on tour)and hearing the 'world news.'
The mush they are fed at home by the American media is all inward looking and ignores the rest of the world, except for the aspects their media/authorities consider worthy of inclusion. Or so I'm told.

Perhaps that's why they have a 'head in the sand' approach to global warming, 'not their problem' even though it is and they are the worse culprits, (or so I'm led to beieve by our media, and I've no way of knowing how impartial that is, do I).

well if you lived through the period of the miners strike, you would realise that the English media have virtually no understanding of anything that happens outside flippimg London.

everybody round here just clenched their fists in annoyance throughout every newscast as the London media failed to grasp even the the most rudimentary points every party in the discussion was trying to make.

I suspect that is, in some measure, what is at the bottom of the ugliness in tone of some posters from Northern Ireland - although why they feel more disenfrancised by the London toffocracy than the rest of us, beats me.

leave the yanks alone - most of the ones here are okay, and the tone of this thread is racist and offensive.

There is no such thing as American, or British, or Irish stupidity. Stupidity is a failing of some individuals, and it knows no national boundaries.

I am sick to death of reading these threads advancing unwarranted generalisations about groups, national, political, or religious, and attributing to those groups, vices or inadequacies which are applicable only to a few individuals in every group.

This thread, I'm afraid, says more about the originator, than about the Americans, who are neither worse nor better than we are.

IMHO, whether the originator really believes, or is simply a troll, baiting for reactions, this thread should be deleted forthwith.

What say you, Joe?

Asus, who created this thread, has not posted here after the initial post.
In fact, Asus has only made two post in his/her entire Mudcat membership.
One of them, of course, is the opening post in this thread, which is rude, insulting and inciting.
And, since making those two post, Asus has changed his/her Mudcat name to varsis.
Which leads me to wonder, is Asus/varsis an agitating asshole.

However, there are some truly interesting discussions here now and then. Amos can be fascinating when he's on a roll. Specially an eggroll. He can also turn your brain to chowder some other times, when he gets a little too arcane and analytical...but we all have our moments, right?

I have met some amazingly stupid people from both the USA and Canada, and I think it would be neat to give them a special area in which to breed and cohabitate. Maybe southern Nevada?
