    Hi.

    My friend introduced me to this site and told me to hook up. I don't really understand too much of these different discussions that I've found roaming the topics, but I hope to learn and eventually be able to question all your silly believes and theories.

    My main interests are historical discussion, philosophy and religion. I'm a very radical person, as well as I'm an atheist. I dislike USA (for obvious reasons) and I think oil should be banned. Mankind is killing itself.

    See you around, !

    Hard to find somewhere to start. For instance I dislike the president, whom the americans managed to re-elect after going to war on Iraq. That reveals some of the stupidity that roams american homes. The fact that someone hasn't overthrown him (potentially "killed" him) also shows that America has no concern for other (as well as their own) nations.

    Oil. Oil, oil and more oil. That's pretty much everything that goes through important people's heads in the USA. As we all know the removal of Saddam Hussein had nothing to do with the enormous oil reserves in Iraq, of course.

    What more to add? MacDonalds? I hate those pieces of trash stores that are ruining my country. I wish them burned down and the ashes to be spread amongst the burning pits downbelow.

    Anything else you wanted some enumeration on?

    Thanks for your reply.

    I just wondered if, like a number of people, you equated the citizens of the US (each an individual with different ideas) with the reified notion of the country itself. Only about 50% of voters in the States ever voted for Dubya, on either occasion. And a large number who may have voted against him were, thanks to Jeb's manoeuvrings, disqualified from voting.

    I despise the current government administration at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, but it seems a bit of a stretch for me to go from there to despising all USians. In fact, let's not forget that that's a slippery slope that led, not too many years ago, to Islamists 'justifying' the horrors of the 11th of September attacks by claiming that every USian was culpable and therefore it didn't matter which of them died.

    This may seem like a small point or quibble, but I suspect that USians get enough vitriol flung their way without needing, each of them, to be tarred with the same brush by us.

    Apologies if I've turned your introduction into an argument, but I just thought it needed saying.

    cheer
