    As an American I can relate to that.
    I don't like how some of that ignorance has come onto NB though


    Pretty Much.

    See what I'm talking about, we already have Americans discussing our Country's flaws. We don't need you guys to tell us on NB about America's Flaws.


    Nope. I grew up in South Auckland.
    Oh ok all good. I don't live in Auckland if your wondering.

    Plz do not say we were "selfish." When George Washington left the presidency, he warned us never to involve ourselves in other countries problems, especially Europe's. Before December 1941, the US was a country that prefered isolationism, and only wanted to declare war if we were attacked first. Obviously we've done a complete 360 in that policy (lets not discuss that) but do not call those Americans "selfish"

    For your information, I can say with 99% certainty that NO ONE ON NB was alive during that time.

    So that doesn't apply to us Americans on NB.

    The European Union has problems that will probably destroy the euro currency. Sweden may be doing fine, but countries that use the same money you use are not. That is a problem

    I don't whether you've lurked here the past few months or are a dupe or whatever, doesn't matter it just that the NB Hate for America is increasing.

    At first I was like that, but it seems its just baseless hating.

    **I didn't mean for this to be the declaration of war among the world on the internet.

    PS: Not Gary Oaks till about page 4 or 5 plz(if we get there)

    Here they go again Btw i find it kinda off that the "best counrty in the world" Is
    1. Bancrupt, Europe has nothing to do with it.
    2. You will not consider to invest in greener energy, because you say that there is no proof of glabal warming.
    3. You think you ALONE saved the world in WW2, NO you did not.
    4. You despise China, because they will rape your ecnomy. No, they already had.

    i think you misinterpreted what i just said o_o'

    i didn't say YOU had you head up your ass and you're a selfish a-hole, im saying that people here are going to believe what they wanna believe no matter what, whether or not that number increases, so its best to just let those people think what they wanna think.

    That doesn't matter.

    If you reread all 3 pages(at this point) You're doing exactly the thing I'm talking about.

    I understand other countries take pride in their history, but our history is still evident.

    You hear any French being proud of Joan? They can't because they was back when my Great Great Great Grampa's Uncle's Aunties Daddy's Great Daddy was still swimming.

    None of that matters.

    I really hate to say it like this, but it was a culture thing at the time. Americans were adament about minding our own business and not involving ourselves with other peoples problems. France and England declared war on Germany and got beaten to a pulp for a while because of it. It was not any of our business what happend in Europe. Obviously hindsight is 20/20 and we just did not know how evil Hitler really was at the time.

    No but the problem is that this is a "global economy" (I really hate that term) and if the European Union collapses and Europe goes into a recession, the effects will be felt in Europe, the US, China, Russia, etc. Therefore its everyones problem
