I suggest you read my previous post again and do not put words in my mouth I did not say!
First of all, you state I don't like Americans being patriotic!
I did NOT say that, all I said is that in my opinion, this is not the appropiate place to be patriotic. For all I care, Americans, Dutch, British, Coreans and even the Canadians can be as patriotic as they want, but this is not the place for it, in my view.
In the same way, you wrote "If you get offended by phrases like "just my two cents...." Where did I say I get offended by that phrase?
"Your comment could have been worded better. "God Bless America Crap" is harsh, and it appears that you only meant to use flamebait. The events of Sept. 11 caused a surge in patriotism, it doesn't mean that you can't have pride in your own country."
This is a discussion forum, for Chr*st sake! You post opinion A, I post opinion B and this is how a discussion is started! That's what people come here for, to discuss, not to share the same opinion!
As for GD727: You wrote "How dare you insult the USA!!! I don't go around saying the Netherlands suck do I?!"
First of all, if my post is an insult, then you are very easily offended.
Second, I couldn't care less if you would insult my country. That would be your opinion and I might even agree with you if give me your arguments.
In your country my statement might be anti-patriotic and I would not have made the statement if this were a 100% or even 95% US website, but it is not. People from all over the world come here.
If you can show your patriotism towards YOUR country at this site, we should also expect the Iranians or Afghan or Palestian visitors to show their patriotism regarding THEIR countries.
