Provoked them by not selling our goods lol. Anyway this is going off topic.


You act as if we just said the United States only refused to trade, thats not the same at all as economic sanctions.

And that might be valid if the US kept to itself and didn't have any political influence on the rest of the world.


Many of us Americans don't want to meddle in your affairs, let alone anyone else's. Blame our government with presidents that constantly find new ways to attain greater power, who do whatever they wish despite what the people want. It's funny too when you think about it. Yes, the Republican party is quite honestly a joke these days, but some of the basic principals they used to stand for such as limiting big government and giving more power back to the people and state would be ideal. This way we could stay the hell out of global issues in the first place.

Secondly, I don't like it when we get the rednecks in our country who wave the flag around and want to try and tell others how they need to live. So please tell me why people like me should feel any more accepting of those from other countries treating us just the same? :huh:

Lastly, I'm not sure what being from Texas has to do with it really, other than that we have a lot of religious people up north who elect idiots like Rick Perry into power. Religion religion religion... never fails that where idiocy is found, religion isn't too far away.

Anyway.

Yeah, this story is just nonsense. We have a lot of anti-Obama people around, but personally, I question who else would be more fitting in office. Romney? Hell no. Ron Paul? I like the man, but let's be honest, I seriously doubt his chances of winning. This is all just a bunch of talk, people like to make noise, and idiots will always speculate the extreme. It's Fox News after all, should any of us truly be surprised? :rofl:

Yet you support their invasion for a failed attempt at implanting democracy. Sounds like a contradiction.

Um... you sure that's how you want to define yourself? :huh:

red·neck [red-nek]
noun

1. an uneducated white farm laborer, especially from the South.
2. a bigot or reactionary, especially from the rural working class.

http://www.merriam-w...tionary/redneck


1

sometimes disparaging : a white member of the Southern rural laboring class




2




often disparaging : a person whose behavior and opinions are similar to those attributed to rednecks

redneck also red·necked adjective

You clearly want to make the term derogatory. To Merriam Webster a Redneck is a working close southern man. You can be educated and not be a racist and still be a redneck. Being a redneck is more of a way of life then it is a derogatory term and those that use it as a derogatory term are usually those that think they are better than everyone else.

Yet you support their invasion for a failed attempt at implanting democracy. Sounds like a contradiction.

What invasion? I never said I supported Iraq.

You mean economic Sanctions which hurt Japan in many many more ways than mere oil.

Yeah, we should have just let Japan carry out it's own imperialistic agenda toward China. You do realize why we (Allies) had embargoes against Japan...right?

Exactly, Japan was told to cut it out or there would be sanctions, Japan refused to listen and in fact felt that even if sanctions were imposed, they would by then, have all the resources they needed from China.
They were wrong, then in an effort to prevent what they thought the next step would be (Military action) they decided to cripple the US ability in the Pacific to project power with the attack on Pearl. This was also to buy them time to take other key areas in the Pacific, and secure other oil resources in the south china sea without further interference.
So yea, to blame Pearl on the US/British sanctions is assnine and ill-informed at best.

Hardly, I just went to dictionary.com. Doesn't change the fact that the term obviously has bad correlations tied with it, considering you have to find the right dictionary to find the definition you want. Considering most people consider rednecks to be "uneducated", hence how that definition exists to begin with, says a lot. Not all rednecks are uneducated maybe, but the first thing that pops into someone's head when they hear the term "redneck" is not a well informed, well educated individual. That's just being honest here...

Also, from the Merriam-Webster Learner's Dictionary for people that are learning English (linked right from your source), this is what is listed:

[count] US, informal + usually disapproving: a white person who lives in a small town or in the country especially in the southern U.S., who typically has a working-class job, and who is seen by others as being uneducated and having opinions and attitudes that are offensive

If you see it differently, then by all means. Just saying that many people won't see it the same way, much in the same way a "gay man" won't be instantly thought of as one who is merely "happy". :p

There's a lot of fear mongering these days. I'm not sure when it was that people started getting so scared of every little thing, to the point of realistically considering conspiracies to be truthful possibilities. Bottom line here is that this is all just a bunch of nonsense all because some people don't like Obama.

There's a radio station in Houston that I used to love due to the banter and comedy in the mornings, but ever since Obama came into office, they've been on a "No-bama" (as they call it) ride the whole time. I get exhausted just listening to them talk about him... We got people here who are legitimately upset with Obama, but honestly have no real solutions to who'd be a better fit in office. Personally, I don't see any change with what Romney offers, and I'd rather stick with Obama another 4 years than try to figure out what he's planning for us.

Oh well to rednecks that's not how they look at themselves that way and usually the people that use it in derogatory ways are the ones that don't know any rednecks and use stereo typical terms to describe them.
