I'm sorry to sound like a bitch, but why is it everytime we have a post on FP that has anything to do with a government, politics or just countries in general, it always gets redirected into something along the lines of "hurr durr amurrica is stupid n fat"?   
   
  I already knew what the post was going to be about even before I finished scrolling down. Yes, it's funny to laugh at America's faults, and I find them funny at times too. But do they need to have the same joke in every single one? The way it's presented is that America is complete **** and everywhere else is a godsend. You went as far to compare Hunger in Africa to Greed in America on a day you can get everything that would've been overpriced for a really low sum of cash.   
   
   
Tl;dr-If you could get something you wanted for cheap, you'd do it too. America isn't this demon that only cares about themselves, and even if that's not what this post says that's what it's implying, that America is full of selfish people.

k, just checking, does funnyjunk suck the cocks of the palestinians or are you kids actually impartial about this issue? 'Cause normally FJ is stupid liberal... and it's the liberal tendency to blindly condemn Israel o_o

It seems to go both ways around here. Some are butthurt at Palestinians, some are butthurt at Israel. One asshole the other day literally said Israel's possession of its territory was somehow "illegal." Both sides, whether funnyjunkies or IRL, have their share of ignorant rancor and stupidity.

Only problem is that one side spews stupidity in order to try to make sure the other doesn't exist. The other spews stupidity in order to keep on trying to exist... So you see why I'm biased towards Israel...

I'll admit to some bias in favor of Israel as well. There's literally nothing to dispute as far as what part of the world Israel resides in. The British pulled out of that area and the U.N. established that land as a new sovereign territory. Period. Rejecting something that the majority of the world agrees upon doesn't make the Palestinians righteous freedom fighters.

Never forget the 3 no's. No recognition, No negotiation, No peace.

That's what Israel has to deal with.

I lived in Israel for eight years and visit about once a year, so I can easily tell you how ******* pissed off I get when I see people acting like the terrorist organizations that attack Israel are "fighting for freedom."  Anybody who thinks Hamas or Hizballah or any of these other terrorist organizations actually care about "freedom" or safety has no idea what he/she is talking about.  The hundreds (sometimes thousands) of rockets that fly into Israel every year have one purpose:  To attempt to kill as many innocent civilians as possible.   
   
While Israel is by no means perfect, the only reason civilians die when Israel strikes is that Hamas purposely places their military assets in highly populated areas for two reasons:  To deter Israeli attacks and to tell the world that Israel is murdering their babies when people inevitably die.  If given funding to build schools, they'd probably use it to buy more rockets instead.     
   
It's easy to sit on your couch on the other side of the world and criticize Israel, but you'd need to actually be live there and have family members in the IDF to truly know what these "resistance" forces are really all about.

Ah good, well I'm just teeing off on some idiot below us. Says that there's an apartheid because of the border fence. Clearly America has an Apartheid on Mexico because of their border fence, right?

Kid also says that CNN isn't supporting palestine and Jews hate peace xD He's not even trying to sound legit at this point.

Never understood what that meant. Palestine existed up until 1948 when the Israelis invaded and won. You could say the exact same thing about the United States, it isn't REALLY the United States, that land belonged to the Native Americans. What the Europeans did to the Native Americans is the exact same thing as what the Israelis are doing to the Palestinians.

Palestinians are ******* scum. They're not fighting for freedom, they're fighting to destroy Israel. Europeans don't fight their governments, Muslim invaders posing as students attack European governments. Meme fail.

lol, have you even heard of what Netanyahu has been saying? He's been talking **** about Palestine and the U.S. He has said the whole goal of Operation Pillar of Cloud was to wipe out the whole state of Palestine, and that America is so easy to manipulate that we won't even be a problem.

Israel has killed hundreds of civilians for no reason in an extremely crowded city. Hamas (not Palestine) has killed about 5 Israelis. Fair trade off, don't you think?

And Israel is fighting to destroy Palestine, and Muslim students in Europe learn while Europeans make more weird pop music.

Fun fact: there is a sizable Muslim population in the Balkans due to the old Ottoman Empire. All white, by the way.

I wouldn't say we Europeans are free of guilt in regarding the fights.

From what I've read from several news sources people from around the Mediterranean ain't the perfect people from god at all.
I've noticed this on several holidays as well, Greek taxi drivers driving without the till on, buss drivers doing the same, Greek people claiming their dead parents pension and so forth. (No direct hate for Greece here, I've witnessed the taxi and bus stuff in Spain, Italy and Turkey as well)

So from what I've seen and read the people down there cheat on their taxes, work illegally, claim cash for dead people and then they have the nerve to complain when their government struggles to pay it's bills?
God danged guys? Did you all just give up hope after the Roman empire collapsed?

I'm curious about this post because from the looks of it OP is basically saying that Americans have stomped all that bad stuff out so the only thing we have left to fight is each other for some discounts.

Or was I supposed to go "Oh no! America has a corrupt government, epidemic hunger issues, no homeland, AND we're under a dictator but all we really care about is 50% off!!" Because if that's what I was supposed to infer from this that's just a piss poor try even for the internet.
