I hope I've never come off as arrogant because I'm really not. Indeed, I once made the argument that America is NOT "better". When I look at, for instance, Canada, I see a sister nation to the US. Our people are not so different. Like Ringfacwen said, some of us make fun of each other but I think no real harm is intended... like siblings.
Remember that the vast majority of Americans are decended from imigrants from other countries. We are proud of that heritage and are in no position to look down on anyone. Ask your average American "What do you think about (insert your nations name here)?" and the answer your likely to receive is "oh, I've always wanted to go there!" or "Oh, that's such a beautiful country!" Our governments may do and say as they please (with or without our consent) but we, the people should have no quarrels.
Love, peace and hair grease my friends :funnylaugh:
