Things You Like, And Dislike, About Your Country

Posted (7 years 4 weeks 1 day 21 hours ago) and read 3771 times:

I'd like people to list a number of things they like about their country, and also an equal number of things they dislike. So if you can think of three, five or twenty things you like, you've to match them with three, five, or twenty things you dislike. If you can only think of one thing you dislike, only list one you like. If you can't think of anything you like or dislike, don't bother posting.

I'll start the ball rolling:

Things that make me stay:

SIZE: While being small can have it's disadvantages, Ireland really is just one big village.
SCENERY: Never fails to catch my breath.
LOCATION: With low-cost airlines now flying to all the major cities in Europe, why would I even think of living anywhere else?
INFORMALITY: You can strike-up a conversation with anyone, anytime, anywhere.
RTE RADIO 1: A good mix of quality and entertaining programming. The thing I miss most when abroad.

Things that make me want to pack my bags:

THE WEATHER: So unpredictable it's not funny, particulary after one of the wettest Junes on record.
BEGRUDGERY: At its finest on a personal level, sometimes I wonder if this isn't our defining national trait.
ROADS: They still have to be the worst in western Europe. And the illogical speed limits drive me crazy.
GOVERNMENT WASTE: Throwing billions at an inefficient health service doesn't work.
PEOPLE WHO LIVE IN THE PAST: This is 2007, not 1916.

Over to you, folks!

LIKE:
Bermuda is GORGEOUS.
The pace of life is slow; no hustle like in a big city.
Most people are friendly.
It's relatively safe.
No income tax.

DISLIKE:
The current government...crooked as they come, and barreling towards independence faster than the speed of light. (The Island is SO not ready for independence)
High air fares out of here.....vacations can be really expensive, mainly because of airline monopolies.
High prices because of customs duties, shipping costs added in to sell prices.

    LIKES:

    Weather

    Most of the people are laid back and chill, no one has a pole rammed too far up there ass.

    Were more liberal as a whole, and as a society, more open then say Kansas or Iowa (no offense, but gay rights and abortion as seem to be taboo out there)

    Arnie is governor

    DISLIKES:

    Traffic

    Shallow Beverly Hill Prep betches (intentionally mispelled)

    The public education system has got to be a joke, I've learned more from Wikipedia then I have from middle school and my freshman year in highschool

    Overall, most of us are laid back people, sure we have some corruption in the government, and our school system may not be the best, and there are some uptight shallow idiots, but for the most part, 90% of all Californians are just laid back people, we like what we like, we dislike what we dislike, and if something is bothering us, we don't bitch about it, we try to change it.

    It's always been a problem, although after the unification, the problem became worse in the new federal states. It's under control right now, but those people will still be there to cause trouble, especially on days like WWII VE Day or May 1st.

    No judgement. Never flew on one of them.  Wink However, I should have added the LT MD-11 to my list of dislikes. I like the MD-11, but not when I have to put up with an all economy, 10 abreast 3-4-3 sardine can configuration with a 29-30" seat pitch on it.  irked

    Like
    Incredibly creative artists in virtually every medium makes up for the deluge of bilge water being pumped out by "pop culture"
    Built some pretty nice airplanes
    Suppression of political dissent kept to a relatively dull roar compared to many places
    Wonderfully diverse landscapes and scenery wherever you go
    Healthy progressive movement full of terrific people doing great things
    You can find a bit of somewhere else in the world almost anywhere here
    All the nice people who have ever interacted with me as another human being rather than a retail servant at my various shit jobs
    National shortcomings generally compel bright people to action
    Great contributions to global athletics
    The encouraging growth of communities of people who are looking out for each other
    Most major cities are worth an extended visit
    People taking their nice dogs/cats out in public
    While not as widespread or well-funded as I'd like them to be, public facilities (libraries, parks, etc.) are typically top-notch

    Dislike
    Political duopoly of warmongering corporate sucklings
    Excessive environmental impact on rest of the planet
    Goofs who hang plastic nutsacks on the rear axles of their trucks
    Rampant militarism
    Virtually anything related to Hollywood
    The "war on drugs"
    Frightening influence of religious nut-jobs
    Mind-boggling materialism and consumerism
    A car for everyone in the family
    Terrifying stockpile of nuclear weapons
    Suburban anywhere
    Fair-weather politics
    Proliferation of pristine lawns in places they'd never occur naturally
    Periodic ratification of elite decision-making masquerading as "democracy"
    Absurd embargoes of certain Caribbean nations that don't play by our rules
    Perplexing obsession with firearms
    Wealthy corporations crossing borders are to be invested in, desperate people doing the same are to be deported
    "Market solutions" to health care (thanks for the terminology, Mr. Kerry)
    Columbus Day
    The fact that I know brilliant people who have been relegated to working for multi-billion dollar retail outlets because they couldn't pay for college. May their contributions find alternative outlets.

    Really? That's heartening. A lot of Australians hate political correctness with a passion because they seem to confuse it with rampant stupidity.

    Political Correctness is a great thing and is inclusive, stupidity of the kind which effectively cancels Christmas is neither inclusive nor politically correct.

    I met Aussie's in Thailand, Turkey and Greece and they've all equated John Howard with Dubya. That makes sense considering the average Dubya supporter doesn't travel more than 50 miles in his/her lifetime.
    Less than 20% of US citizens have a passport even though all of the non-prison population has the freedom to leave the country. Only the 'blue' (Democratic) regions have a high concentration of Passport holders.

    Thanks, Braybuddy. I'm afraid I'm only flying to Paris enroute to HEL, but I'm hoping to actually spend some time there during my time off of school during the next year. On the upside, I'll be getting a chance to check out Amsterdam and Boston during my extended layovers at their respective airports on my way back home. Can't wait.
