    Re: The Americans!

    I think I'm like quite a few people in that I have a different view of two Americas that exist simultaneously in the same space. One is the America Mr Sinclair describes. It exists and it has done these wonderful things. The other is the America of arrogance and hypocrisy that Trump sums up so well and that at least some parts of the US State machine seem to reflect.

    I don't think I'm saying anything too shocking. Every country has its dark side including my own (and rather dark elements are pushing policy from inside and outside Parliament at present). When you're as powerful as the US is, and you've got what many see as an embodiment of the worst of America as President you're going to hear a lot more protest and fear than you are appreciation of the Marshall Plan or American hospitality.

    It's horrible when your country is a laughing stock.
    The crowd: "Yes! We are all individuals!"
    Lone voice: "I'm not."

    I agree Clodhopper, every country has their own dirty little secrets and depending what you do or do not support, no government is every going to be loved 100% by 100% of its people.

    And not everyone see's every side of every countries government. Nor does everybody see what governments are covering up and not wanting anyone to see.
