Re: American Exceptionalism

To everyone else. This sounds like the kind of propoganda that putin is paying people to spread across the internet. It has been clearly established that putin has hired rooms full of people to flood the internet with propoganda which is suprisingly like what is being presented here. It was clearly...

Re: Your Guide to Inauguration Day 2017

I think whatever anti semitic connotation which can be dredged up is pretty obscure when you think about "america first" being a pretty much standard sort of thing to say. Trumps propogandists will love it, however, if people make a big stink about it as this will just show how untrustwor...

Re: Your Guide to Inauguration Day 2017

The point is that the president of the US is using phraseology which is associated anti-Semitism. --- Hi Pulga Your video clip doesn't really address the post, in my opinion. It makes sense to me. It is woody allen (who is a famous jew) expressing a comic version of the paranoid jew who imagines an...

Re: American Exceptionalism

I'm not arguing with you. The article says the contamination of people was unintentional. chownah In spite of saying I will not respond to you I will .. because I am stunned by your naivete. You honestly expected them to say it was intentional and admit guilt? That is why they chose a populated arc...

Re: POTUS 2016, part 3

Spicer is probably correct about the global audience, albeit most people wanted to see it for its historical significance. I think historical significance not so much as it is like how people like to drive slow past a wreck and look at the gore. The petulance about attendance is an example of the g...

Re: POTUS 2016, part 3

Greetings, I understand you have chosen to play devil's advocate, but when that entails defending what is so blatantly wrong, I don't see how it does service to anyone. You misunderstand my comment then. I'm not interested in Spicer's comments per se... I'm more interested in the oddity that anyone...

Re: Your Guide to Inauguration Day 2017

I think that trump's propoganda machine's lies can be a big distraction. It would be good if people didn't waste their energy by making a big show over it but rather just started getting into a groove of "yep, there it is again, whadyou expect?" and used it to reaffirm the need to keep the...

Re: American Exceptionalism

Will you accept that claims of exceptionalism are more common from U.S.? That Americans are more self congratulatory than others such as British and Germans .. (leave us poor Asians out of the equation). I'll quote you as a reply. You said, "the world is no longer interested in America (as in ...

Re: American Exceptionalism

Many americans think that america is exceptional because people of humble origins can peacefully become the president.

Re: American Exceptionalism

Chownah, Is the american landscape exceptional? Highly subjective. We have beautiful beaches in Goa and Kovalam and from balcony of any hotel in Pelling, Gangtok you can see Mt Kangchenjunga (third highest peak) rise 8,586 meters or 28,169 ft majestically into the sky (that is five and one third mi...

Re: POTUS 2016, part 3

I watched a vid of the speech. I thought it was bad. Not because of what he said, I mean the style was bad. Sort of like he was trying to make it an epic presentation but really missed the mark. Also, it sort of sounded like he was still campaigning for an office he already achieved. A couple of day...
