There seems to be a lot of bizarre claims, stereotypes, Brit bashing and Europe hating from our friends across the sea. One user claims:
Italy is just a flea on a dog's rump and the dog is Europe and it is thousands of miles away. It never occurred to me to visit Europe let alone Italy…My vote has real and true political power attached to it. Your vote means nothing”
While another user claims:
Something seriously wrong with UK's people. Look how they get drunk.
Women in UK are easy when drunk every weekend and they have no self respect. Its an ugly scene” (referring to the Amanda Knox trial)
Do you think that they might be jealous and wished they had been born a Brit?
Answer on Does the apparent mental health of some users here entertain you or disturb you?
I agree that most posters on the U.S. board are either tortured souls or ignorant bigoted right-wing religious crackpots. The people are uninformed, unintelligent and intolerant and are attacking everyone in the world because America has been insulated for generations and now is susceptible to the world's problems and they cannot accept and handle it.
It is more complicated than that but I am scratching the surface of their difficulties in coping with our current problems at home and not accepting Obama as president and losing influence and importance in the world.
