HERE AND ABROAD, MOST PEOPLE THINK AMERICANS ARE GREEDY AND ARROGANT JERKS
[link to www.blacklistednews.com]
Americans are arrogant and greedy, according to people both within and outside the country. And, while Americans may believe themselves tolerant, that's not the opinion of many across the globe.

Those are some of the takeaways from a Pew Research Center poll released Wednesday, which surveyed over 20,000 respondents in 16 nations.

Respondents were read a list of six traits—optimistic, hardworking, tolerant, arrogant, greedy, and violent—and asked whether they associated that quality with Americans.

Half or more of the respondents in 10 of the countries associated arrogance with people in the U.S. That opinion was held most widely n Greece, where 72 percent of respondents felt that way. Sixty-nine percent in Australia and Canada also made that trait association, while the country where the fewest people (34 percent) associated that characteristic with Americans was Poland.

In seven of the countries the majorities viewed Americans as greedy. Greece was where that association was felt most strongly (68 percent), while just 21 percent made that association in Italy.

Looking at the median of all countries, 54 percent associated arrogance with Americans, and 52 percent attributed greed to the population. A median of  48 percent think Americans are violent.

Then why do they line up to immigrate?.

Most of these people think it's America job to give them things.

Why are their countries so corrupt? That's a sure sign of greed.

I lived in Europe 20 years ago, and the European cable stations regularly showed blatant anti-American documentaries. The Europeans already didn't like Americans and I wondered if these documentaries were designed to get them to hate us even more.

Back then Americans were still friendly people, so I imagine at this point we are hated even more as that friendliness has indeed been replaced with arrogance.

Americans played global policeman, took in more immigrants, and handed out more financial aid while others lived in their socialist paradise.

American are over worked and under appreciated.

America has brought more to the table in the past 150 years then most countries combined. What you call greed and arrogance I call American spirit. Our time on top maybe coming to an end but you can bet your ass that there will be Americans that pick up the pieces and rebuild this once great Country and restore it to its former glory.
