Imagine if America was a dictatorship.
l You could have fl/ ; of the people have
all the nation' s wealth

You could help your rich friends get richer by cutting their
taxes, and bailing them out when they gamble and lose.

You could ignore the needs of the poor for health care
and education.
Your media would appear free, but would secretly be
controlled by one person and his family
You could phones. You could torture foreign
prisoners. You could have rigged elections. You could
lie about why you go to war.
You could fill your prisons with one particular
racial group, and no one would complain.
You could use the media to scare the people into
supporting policies that are against their interests.

imagine, but please try.

But he's right. How many European jokes do you see on the front page on a weekly basis? No offense, but it seems like some Europeans just can't take a joke. Sure, some Americans also can't take a joke, but I've seen way more Europeans get mad about jokes against their country than Americans. It's just something I've noticed over the years.

I still love you Europe.

It's because these "jokes" against Europe are actually rants with zero humour in them. Take the Quagmire one last week for example, that wasn't a joke, that was an ill-informed attack.

I think it has a lot to with the way America and its people present themselves. Many other countries appear and presnt more modestly by comparison. People love to see the the arrogant fall.

Not what I mean. I'm talking that most of these, with the exception of rigged presidential elections that haven't happened yet, are true about America.

American politics, life and overall happiness sucks right now and it's because politicians stopped caring about their country. Compared to other FIRST world countries, we might as well just be Syria and we'd probably be happier being Syria because at least we're trying to change.

Comparing the US to countries like Syria is beyond stupidity.

And in terms of corruption? We're pretty much on par with most of Europe.

As I said, go READ for a change in something that isn't in the media, and you'll find in "My Life as a Terrorist" that just because you right voicing your dissent on this country you have a file with the FBI. He was, because he was born in Yemen and traveled a lot and wrote books on politics from the 1800's, suspected to be the ******* Unabomber. When he finally sued the country and got his file, he was pissed to find it didn't even have the slightest bit of truth.

No, what you're doing is starting an argument. A bigger man or even a smart person would walk away from a differing opinion without a care. I'm clearly not the bigger or smarter man, but neither are you for trying to reason with a "stupid" person. Your unending replies also show that you're no better than me. You always need to get the last word, even if it's to call me a faggot, and that makes you even sadder than a guy with a day off from doing anything sitting around on a site made for 12 year olds.

I'm simply educated the mentally challenged. Making the world a better place. Not acting out is what's killing the human race.

Saying we should be like a third world war torn country would be better for us is kind of insane. Apparently, you're throwing your frustrations and self afflictions at me.

You want a credible source? I already gave you one. It's a story you can find in Harper's magazine, a political/literary magazine credible by college professors. Any other sources you want can be found in a library, but you apparently don't know what that is. All I'm seeing is someone who wants to believe in what the media makes him believe. I can also give you proof I study these things, where as all you can tell me is yeah... i do too cos I go on wikipedia and read **** that might be false.

HARPERS is a magazine that has no editing from outside sources and takes, quite literally, a story or art piece from the artist with permission and posts it in the magazine. There's some conservative stuff in there too. You'd never know, though, because you've never been in a libary.

Grammatical flaws? It's called a typo. Like you've never even made one. You've also proved yourself to be an even bigger faggot by arguing with what you perceive to be a faggot.

We're just having a bad time with Congress right now. The last couple years have seen way too much blockage due to them being out of touch with those that elected them because of all the lobbying that goes on. The media's always been ****** here, but most everyone knows about it, or at least which outlets are the most biased. And don't say you'd rather be in Syria because you really, really don't. ****** cray over there. At least here you can consistently expect to have food on the table, housing, and some form of income.

I found it used to be the other way around, I'm English by the way. Don't know how this has happened. Everyone just needs to stop crying like a little bitch when their country/continent is insulted.

I said this last time when I happened to lay my weary eyes upon a "post mocking Europe" and I'll say it again. Europe is not one ******* entity! Wouldn't you agree it would be farcical to disparage North America on the basis of scores of people leaving Mexico, but then emigrating to the US? I thought so. Well the post in question actually had a panel, wherein Quagmire noted astutely that "HARR HARR YUROP HAS FANCY CULTURE BUT ALSO PROBLEM WITH HOOLIGANISM". The general consensus is it's fine if you "mock" individual countries, which is perfectly sound the way I see it. For example, I'm Russian and come across "posts mocking Russia" every now and then, and find most of them funny!

For the record, the content I am referring to was about twice as long, meanwhile this is an actual film caption. Moreover, it's natural for there to be more Europeans on this site than Americans; Europe is an entire continent, for flip's sake!

there is still a difference between comparing north america and Europe because most of Europe is tied together in the EU. This can't be said about north america or any other continent. I don't dislike or hate Europe at all, but you have to agree that most "country mocking" posts are directed towards the US, and that Americans tend to handle their country or continent being mocked much better on average (at least on FJ)

Okay, I'll concede that my example may not have been the most poignant, yet the cultural, political, economical, historical etc. differences observed across the continent are profoundly immense. Ergo, mocking Yurop is simply foolish. I agree that America tends to be the butt of most country bashing jokes, for reasons unbeknownst to me, so it's not surprised they're more used to it. In my mind, it's difficult to denigrate Europe and do so in an amusing manner.

You can mock a country, not a continent. You can't just say Europe. name countries, EU, UN, then we would understand. otherwise it just comes out as blatant and ignorant. (I kind of feel the same way when people say america instead of "the US", but still, states and countries are a huge difference, culturally.)

Most other cultures have a ingrained history and acceptance of self mockery. Russia and America are some of the few that don't relentlessly bash themselves at every opportunity, and America is the only one that freaks the **** out whenever they are insulted.

I'm Canadian.

I don't like Tim Hortons, and think myself to be quite metro, and am offended when I'm called a Hortons worshipping lumberjack, yet outside of this comment, you'd never see me admit to such.

The main thing about posts "mocking" Euros, is not that its they are the butt of a joke, its that the joke itself tends to be relentlessly crude, such as that idiotic Quagmire GIF posted yesterday. Yes, the USA sends the most foreign aid of any country in the world, but only by virtue of having the highest GDP. I could go on, but I simply hope to make a point.

If you make a joke about bad teeth, Brits will have a chuckle and think about how far stereotypes have missed their mark with the country. If you say Asians have tiny dicks, they will think about how that joke was associated with undernourishment of peasants, and about how the average is only a bit less then a white guy.

And if you hear a joke about how Americans are addicted to Mcdonalds, you should simply link an article pointing to the 95% overweight rate of Naaru, and not call the poster a faggot. Because while its not true that America is the fattest country, it is true that it is a very heavy country (74.3% overweight), and the birthplace of fast food, the poster child of obesity.

Speaking on behalf of Americans from a none bias view point (I'm English) I think most Americans don't give a **** when you take the piss out of them, just some of them do like in any country it's just because most people on this site are American so you're gonna get a let more Americans who are utter penises

It's not 74.3%, it's 68.8%. Still far too much, but not as generous as you say. Also Americans don't freak the **** out when insulted, you just happen to be on an American website so the number of people overreacting is greater, even if the proportion is the same.

In respect of your first point, I wouldn't say Russians are particularly self-conscious of the banter concerning them. We always get a laugh or two out of the way we are perceived in the West, in the same manner as we in turn laugh at stereotypical American jokes, and so forth.
