Re: View of America from Austrailia.
Yeah, we're doing so much better.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 15865702


It would appear that TPTB of Anglo-American-Zionist empire are inflicting suffering of a variety of maladies, on all their occult colonies (i.e.- Canada, Australia, U.S.,New Zealand, Israel, Ireland etc.) as a result of their greed and maniacal mismanagement for centuries.

Let us not forget the influence this leviathan has also had globally on former colonies and possessions like India, and in the the Middle East where it's covert operations infiltration, subversion, wars and incitement of revolutions against countries like Libya, Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Syria, Egypt, etc. have been responsible for the deaths of millions of mostly innocent civilians through, sanctions, violence, starvation, and creations of chaos over the last 2 centuries alone.

When will we all realize what has been going on and put an end to their perverted control over us.

Re: View of America from Austrailia.
I'll tell you what the real under-lining issue many friendly, allied non-Americans have with the U.S.:

The world order has been dependent on the U.S. military [primarily...NATO is often derisively referred to as the U.S. and Friends] since the end of the last European world war. America's allies and friends basically decided to abdicate their self defense responsibilities to the U.S. This allowed them to in turn use the money 'saved' [not saved, just spent elsewhere] exclusively on domestic issue that would get re-elected, i.e. the welfare state. The welfare state in turn has over the past 60 years basically produced a lot of spoiled people, who in turn turn their anger and hated at The Man [the U.S.]. And non-U.S. politicians routinely use the U.S. as an external bogeyman for domestic political reasons.
Basically, the U.S. and it's allies and friends have a very un-equal relationship wth the U.S. standing on it's own being much larger, with a huge domestic population, world's biggest economy, the most influence world-wide in social, artistic and cultural areas in addition to the world's mightiest military, which really has no equal. The U.S. Navy owns the seas, it has no equal. The U.S. Air Force has no equals. The Army is the most sophisticated on Earth, and the best equipped, with now years of battle hardened troops. Under the circumstances, resentment is perfectly normal.

Well we see clearly how every day you are losing your freedoms and the people is doing nothing. Actually is frustrating because you can see how the country is falling apart in every single way and it doesn't look how will it ever as it was before 9-11.

We see that the country was taken over by the military industrial complex and the media... and its frustrating that the people doesn't care...

i will tell you something about state in india controlled by communist thugs for 35 yrs.
those guys were creepy and authoritarian to the core.they ruled their state with iron fist.killed,maimed,terrorized citizens for 35 yrs.
they were thrown out when those communist thugs killed 80 farmers in a protest.
when something like that will happen in usa and when public gets tired of that shit,americans will wake up.
plus life is too comfortable for them.All the food to eat,malls,tv,movies,sports,cars,booze,drugs,sex,dance...every​thing to satisfy hedonistic urges.who cares about freedom?

But you are wrong, yet again. It isnt jealousy or a desire to be "noticed" by you all, to be showered by your "benevolence". Quite the contrary,,, we hope and pray we will be ignored by you all, no good can come to being "noticed". And YOU, as a normal bloke? You so want to be adored and put on a pedestal by foreigners, by what you think are your country's vast achievements. The lack of knowledge of all things not American is understandable, but it is the total lack of curiosity because, apparently, you think it inferior or not worthy: a very strange national trait, unlike any other peoples. So please dont talk about what non Americans think of you, look no further at how you think of them,,, and as in any relationship, understand that the disdain begins with you...

Aus are very competent world travelers. So am I, actually. And I have had good experiences with American hospitality. With the well to do, and not so well to do -- the poor, homeless or jobless. In fact I prefer to listen to Americans who honestly have something to bitch about, from everyday experience. Fascinating picture into the nuts and bolts of their society...

I read this post with disbelief.

R Paul is a freemason. His wife is one of the Eastern Star members who is generally married to high-ranking Freemason husbands.

Do not forget that he is also a denier of the truth about the 911 event:

[link to www.youtube.com]

The world does not even know how this secret society is doing behind the scene. How does your friend know the world loves to be ruled under anyone with masonic background or connection?





"From an Austrailian:
Some Australians are watching and caring. We see GOP vote tampering, corporate greed engulfing, your Constitution disintergrating, corrupt politicians prevailing, media deceiving, financial institutions enslaving and your debt level skyrocketing. We see the military machine menacing and hear the warmongers spruiking while watching your infrastructure crumbling, your standard of living plummeting, your liberties vanishing and your soil degrading. We see staggering unemployment levels growing and homeless abounding, our American friends suffering and Ron Paul crusading.
The world loves Ron Paul and hopes he wins"

It touched me and I thought I would share.

My dear I know as much as I want to know about the British and Canadians through experience. I am one of those "odd Americans" who actually does travel. I was sitting in an airport in Canada one time when a rather large woman sat down next to me. She asked where I was going and I told her. She informed me she was on her way to Florida. I asked if she was an American and she said, "OH! God no! Don't insult me. I asked why she was going to the states then? She said she lived there and had to return to "civilization" (Canada) to maintain her free healthcare services.

She asked why I was going to the states, and I said because I live there and I am an American. After she pulled her size 9's out of her mouth she mumbled something about not really "hating" all Americans. I would say that the disdain started with her wouldn't you?

No I dont have my wish. But let's make this clear, I am making a distinction between the people and the political entity. As a Canadian I can certainly criticize Canadians, their lifestyle, politics, and so on... Very intimately and very rudely if I want. I can do the same with Americans, because they also I know very well,,, not as well as their GOVT though. I also know Mexico very well, having lived there a number of years, etc... So, these three countries I know very very well. Outside that universe I am still very much a a student, even though I have traveled to many parts outside NAmerica. So really, it doesnt impress me your qualifications of vacationing outside the US, nor your anecdotes of talking to fat Cdn ladies at the airport.

First of all, I do NOT vacation outside of my country. I only leave here when I must, and now when one of us is sent abroad we feel we have pulled the short straw as assignments go....

I am not quite sure which issues you want to discuss? Please elaborate. Is it your right to throw up criticism of the the US while demanding the right to be rude? Ok.

The fat Canadian lady was a prime example of Canadian behavior. She takes advantage of the US and all it has to offer while hating it and the people who built this nation. Nasty and petty, wouldn't you agree? What is she doing here?

Personally, I like Mexicans.

I can do the same with Americans, because they also I know very well,,, not as well as their GOVT though. I also know Mexico very well, having lived there a number of years, etc... So, these three countries I know very very well. Outside that universe I am still very much a a student, even though I have traveled to many parts outside NAmerica. So really, it doesnt impress me your qualifications of vacationing outside the US, nor your anecdotes of talking to fat Cdn ladies at the airport.

Please address the issues I bring up,,,,,
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 3677166


First of all, I do NOT vacation outside of my country. I only leave here when I must, and now when one of us is sent abroad we feel we have pulled the short straw as assignments go....

I am not quite sure which issues you want to discuss? Please elaborate. Is it your right to throw up criticism of the the US while demanding the right to be rude? Ok.

The fat Canadian lady was a prime example of Canadian behavior. She takes advantage of the US and all it has to offer while hating it and the people who built this nation. Nasty and petty, wouldn't you agree? What is she doing here?

Personally, I like Mexicans.

It is quite annoying these posts have a programmed glitch, the quote button misplaces everytime. Why us? and not others? Am I paranoid to think it is a flag to monitor our conversation?

Anyway, the original post you express a distinct lack of curiosity and outright disdain for things you obviously know little of. That disdain is what traveling Americans usually wear and express and quite ignorantly unaware that they are doing so. At least you are honest...

Be that as it may,,, we are all, to varying degrees, a product of our societies and, unfortunately, the US is one where hubris and disdain of others is a national trait that permeates the psyche of many ordinary Americans,,, and beyond any reasonable reason for being so. Another unfortunate thing is that the internet has allowed "foreigners" to listen in on your dialogue between yourselves, and so it comes as no surprise when you converse with us you first notice our flag, and colour your opinion with that in mind. YOu are not the only ones guilty of such a tactic,,, but it flows quite easily and unfortunately is not simply a tactic of attack, but a belief that you live by.

Like I said, I havent seen other nationalities quite so ignorant of themselves...

You are not the least bit honest as you claim to know Americans well and yet have offered nothing but typical and ignorant stereotypes, backhanded slaps, and ill disguised contempt and dislike. I have little to no patiences for your kind of person.

Take this statement for instance:

"unfortunately, the US is one where hubris and disdain of others is a national trait that permeates the psyche of many ordinary Americans,,, and beyond any reasonable reason for being so."

To declare something a "national trait" and accuse it of permeating the psyche of all Americans, is beyond stupid and assinine. The US is made up of all kinds of people who bring their culture and their customs with them. What exactly are we ignorant of when we live all cultures everyday of our lives?

I am not curious about Canadians, nor am I curious about the British because I do know who you are and I find you an unpleasant group. Does that mean you all are? No, but the ones who I have observed most definitely are. Some who I have met are ok, nothing to write home about. I am most comfortable with my own people and confine myself to those who I do enjoy. Sorry that you find that so offensive.

Americans are some of the most caring people in the world, but because of spite and pettiness we will never ever get credit from any of our Anglo-brothers. Thank God we do not judge ourselves by your lofty standards which you do not practice yourselves just demand that we meet them.

Where ever we are needed we are there, and yes we would probably send you aid should you ever need it. We send our help around the world to enemy and "friend" alike and still it is never ever enough, because there will always be your type of person. That fuels American cynicism and contempt for the rest of the world especially our neighbors who do nothing but carp and whine.

We are not ignorant of the things we find interesting, and you are not among those things. I am sorry but that is the way it is.

Re: View of America from Austrailia.
The Untied States was chosen by TPTB to be the enforcer for the anglophile empire and thus we have the sovereign City State of Washington, D.C. and the PENTAGON(the enforcer). The financial arm of the ANGLOPHILE EMPIRE is the city of London another sovereign city state w/in the city of LONDON. It controls the financial aspects of the empire. Finally, you have the city state called the Vatican which is the religious controller for the empire. The American people have been played just as the other parts of the Anglophile empire have. We have sacrificed more because we had a larger population and industrial base and plenty of developed natural resources. Therefore, we had to come to the aid of GB and be involved in WWI and WW2. It was all planned before it ever happened. We have all been played for suckers. It is just that some of us make better suckers than others no matter what country you come from.

ALL Americans? Since you cannot even quote my words correctly you qualify as one of those stereotypical Americans who "make believe" they are superior, and from that perspective conclude with haughty hubris some sort of revelation about myself. Try not playing to the audience, like some immature child, and correctly quote me and then, if you like, distance yourself from it. If you are in fact denying the trait exists at all,,, well you are stupider that a git, arent you?

Why would I be offended? I find you ignorant of your own ignorance, is all. That isnt an offensive thing, until you start saying you should nuke 'em because some fat lady at the airport bugged you.

And certainly SOME Americans actually do say that,,,,

You know "NUKE 'EM because we can" sort of thing.

Quite offensive and certainly indicative of a person belonging to a militaristic society,,,,

I went after some, lets say not to bright, fellow and after posting my opinion, of the son of a gun, I felt a little sorry that I hit the writer, from Australia no less, with our American truth. I think others don't get how we think and how we act and that we can help people. Really, what's wrong with that, really. God bless America and God bless everyone else as well.

Re: View of America from Austrailia.
AC166--

For whatever it is worth,,, I agree that the fat Cdn lady was ignorant too. She should have explained her position concerning our universal health care to you,,, and she should not feel ungrateful for living in your country (if, in fact, that is what she was). And MANY Canadians do have one face when they talk to Americans, and change to a more honest reckoning when they are talking to a non American. That does seem hypocritical. But actually it is not since most nationalities do the same thing because Americans really do need to be treated differently, and more gently -- way too sensitive and take criticism personally,,, etc...

Just look at you...

I dont agree with that myself,,, I figure if a Canadian or Mexican can take the criticism of their recognizable national trait, and foibles, so should Americans. Fuck it! You arent babies that need protection!

But your nation does not "help", as you say. It is self interested and more often than not bullies its way into areas that are not its national jurisdiction. And by bullying I mean every form of unethical practice up to and including militarily. Sorry to break the news to you. Again, I will say it is a national trait of many Americans to be totally deluded of their country's presence in the world....

What the hell is with you? You are seriously obsessed with a people whose attention you will never win. Girl, if a Canadian invented the wheel he would give it to an American to make something useful with it. Now trot along, I am tired of you.

Yes, of course we never help anyone, not even our citizens who take from there own budgets to give to victims of natural disasters, of course it would never be enough for you would it?

As for your view of Americans, you are Canadian your default position is to hate your southern neighbor, we accept that and don't care.

Yes, many Canadians give up on Canada to look for success in the US. Americans do come to Canada, too.

Again, you are taking this all so personally,, and cannot critically view your nation, or even respond to someone who does. I think the only other nationality that is similarly myopic are Saudi Arabians about their own country. You have to discard all your lazy thinking and national myths,,, I am not a Democrat or Republican, and do not fit into that mold. Your institutions help only if it advances the US corporate logo, never if it doesnt. A prime example is you are very reluctant to join international efforts, where you are subservient. Control is very important, and most know why even if you dont.

So sad....

rofl Hi, hon. Considering the amount of grief we get from these people, there isn't much that would make me feel the least bit bad about unloading on any one of them.

Everyone on this planet is allowed to take pride in their country and their people except us. And who gives us the most grief? Our so-called "friends." That's why I say we have no friends, and I thank God for that.
