haha more french bashing... that's pathetic

haha, I love the results of propaganda, I'm guessing you guys learned about the american revolution from... "The Patriot"? the french wanted to get into the war just because they hated the british they were a huge factor in the war. At the begining the americans couldn't win shit, they kept having to retreat, until they won ONE pivotol battle, and that was all the french wanted, so they joined in and the american revolution soared from there, other than maybe germany during hitlers time, I don't think there is another country out there with as much propaganda as in America, and noone knows it, hell Canada stayed (for the most part) out of the revolution and some of us were on your side, but we still learn about the war differently and actually give the french credit where it's due, they saved your ass, live with it.

Now you all can look on any site to want to and it's almost guaranteed that as long as it's american you'll get the same type of bullshit try looking at the history books for ANY other country, even fucking China and it'll talk about how the french saved the war for america. The french even went into bankruptcy pulling the americans asses out of the british fire

haha as for choosing where you end up in life... wow... that's sad and pathetic, not everyone gets the choices you spoiled little assholes got most sociologists agree that there is a vicious cycle in america where the rich stay rich, and the poor stay poor, and america only has the best high schools when YOU CAN PAY FOR THEM. The american private schools are top but the public schools suck. sure of course there are people who are where they are because they're lazy assholes, but that almost always dooms the children of sed people continuing the goddamn cycle. and the rich? if they don't have any initative, they inherit a goddamn fortune, or marry rich or something else to continue the goddamn cycle.... and guess what?

they don't get the education, so they don't get the jobs that offer the health care (I will admit though, the stuff americans can pay for IS top of the line.... you just need the money first).

of course everything I say is going to be denied because all the americans are subject to the propaganda anyway so I don't expect anything that matters back, oh well, welcome to america!

Here we go again.
get it together said:
haha, I love the results of propaganda, I'm guessing you guys learned about the american revolution from... "The Patriot"?
Speaking of propaganda, here we go again on another I-Know-More-About-America-Than-You-Americans tirade. You people are like hamsters in a wheel. I use that simile to describe two things: your constant repetition of the same tired rhetoric and your intellect.

get it together said:
the french wanted to get into the war just because they hated the british they were a huge factor in the war.
They provided us with weapons and supplies, yes. They did it simply as a means for avenging the injuries France had received from Great Britain. I would not call them a huge factor. Their gunrunners provided arms and supplies. Their agents conducted some espionage. They sent military advisors who wanted our small, untrained army to fight like a continental army; you know, line up neatly and shoot at one another. Yeah, a lot of help there.

get it together said:
At the begining the americans couldn't win shit, they kept having to retreat, until they won ONE pivotol battle, and that was all the french wanted, so they joined in and the american revolution soared from there,
Early on, we tried to fight in the manner in which our military leaders were trained, as stated above. However, we soon adopted a completely different, unorthodox by standards of the time, set of tactics, at which time we began to see victories.

From time to time, emissaries were sent to America by the French government, during the quarrel between Great Britain and her colonies, to ascertain the true state of public feeling here, with the hope of finding in the dissatisfied Americans powerful allies in her intended struggle to recover what "perfidious Albion" had taken from her. She was always saying pleasant things to the Americans, and trying to attract them to herself by professions of friendship and sympathy. This coquetry was taken seriously by the colonies, and when the "time that tried men's souls" arrived--when Great Britain had hired German soldiers to butcher or enslave her subjects in America, the colonies naturally turned first to the French to ask for aid in their struggle for freedom. Silas Deane was sent to France by Congress in the spring of 1776, as a commercial agent to obtain supplies for an army.

get it together said:
other than maybe germany during hitlers time, I don't think there is another country out there with as much propaganda as in America, and noone knows it, hell Canada stayed (for the most part) out of the revolution and some of us were on your side, but we still learn about the war differently and actually give the french credit where it's due, they saved your ass, live with it.
Blah, blah, blah, I don't live in the USA but I know more than you, blah, blah, blah. Give it a fucking rest, pinhead. The French contributed once to a conflict > 200 years ago. I will not bust on Canada at this time.

Sites? Sites? Are you another one of these little dipshits who believes everything he reads on the World Wide Web? Why not actually conduct some research yourself? There's your problem. You believe everything you read on the WWW. Surfing the web to someone's site is no replacement for real learning and research. However, hamsters don't get out much. I understand.

get it together said:
haha as for choosing where you end up in life... wow... that's sad and pathetic, not everyone gets the choices you spoiled little assholes got most sociologists agree that there is a vicious cycle in america where the rich stay rich, and the poor stay poor, and america only has the best high schools when YOU CAN PAY FOR THEM.
Haha, yourself, dumbass. The best schools in this nation are not uniformly private schools. My children will attend one of the best high schools in the nation for free and I only have to pay taxes because I live in this district; it's a public school. The student body is composed of suburbanites, rural dwellers (who are not uniformly wealthy), and some inner city kids who are bussed out for a better education than they would receive in the schools that they and their peers have destroyed over the years. Research, research, research.

get it together said:
The american private schools are top but the public schools suck.
Many of the inner city and poor rural public schools have fewer resources and offer fewer educational programs, but the learning is still there for students who want to grasp it. Most public schools in the USA are good quality institutions. Many private schools in the USA have poor educational programs. More research, chief.

get it together said:
sure of course there are people who are where they are because they're lazy assholes, but that almost always dooms the children of sed people continuing the goddamn cycle. and the rich? if they don't have any initative, they inherit a goddamn fortune, or marry rich or something else to continue the goddamn cycle....
Jealousy finally rears its head. That's called free enterprise. People are free to make fortunes and squander said fortunes at their discretion. They are also free to pass along their resources to whomever they choose. Freedom is a wonderful thing. Do not try to impress your socialistic ideals on us.

get it together said:
and guess what?
What?

get it together said:
they don't get the education, so they don't get the jobs that offer the health care (I will admit though, the stuff americans can pay for IS top of the line.... you just need the money first).
Um, we've covered this. Health care exists for all American citizens. The flexibility and quality varies, but that is the case regardless of socio-economic status. By the way, workers rarely pay for the bulk of their insurance costs. The employers will pay for their employees to be part of an insurance plan. This is one of those fringe benefits that employers can offer potential employees. It also helps to keep their workforce healthy, thus productive. Which web site gave you your information? Ignorance is a killer.

get it together said:
of course everything I say is going to be denied because all the americans are subject to the propaganda anyway so I don't expect anything that matters back, oh well, welcome to america!
No, everything you say is going to be denied because those of us who live and work here know that you are full of shit. You are speaking out of ignorance. Usually, ignorance is forgiveable, but I'm willing to make an exception in your case. You're not only ignorant, you're stubborn. Go away and come back when you have a clue.

really?

hmm... I'm guessing you get all your research from books written by...? american authors? no, I don't know more about america than you... but at least I'm not subject to it's propaganda and your arguments seem to be the same to everything "we're better than you, and all the information you have is wrong" all of it is of course without having been there yourself, all the info you have is biased too, and of course in your favor simply because it's from an american standpoint wow... France went into bankruptcy winning that war for you and they even garnered ideas from you, almost looking up to you... and using your examples with the revolution. and the british didn't fight in the lineups either, they used tactics like that almost throughout the entire campaign in North america, quickly learning any other way wasn't as effective. But of course I guess it's ok, that your country revolutionized the world with it's amazing tactics and unorthodox style, they were just too much for everyone alright

haha wow... you're definitely a product of your makers... no, all my info is not from sites, but almost all info is one way or another biased but here's a challenge, try actually finding out the facts about the fucking war before you make any of your own declarations.

wow... ok so you mean to tell me you think your children will get nearly as good of an education as the people in the private schools with a teacher for almost everyone? wow... if that's case I'm glad the only way I have to put up with you is on this forum, but I guess I was generaling when I said all the private schools suck, I was wrong... only the poverty strikken ones where people are doomed whether they work or not and I've taken everything in school I can about everything remotely close to this so it has nothing to do with needing more research

haha you really think I'm jealous? you couldn't be more far off, I'm glad I'm not blind to my own countries mistakes, (cause there's lots of them) and I'm glad that I'll get healthcare regardless of my job, and I'm glad I'll get a standard level of education regardless of my station when I was born, and I hate to say it, but we have rich people in Canada too! it's wierd isn't? but we have al those freedoms you spoke of as well!!! now I know your probably thinking "he's lying he's lying! noone else is free like america" but it's true!

yeah... I'm very stubborn that's fine, but your still wrong... and I have a clue... and regardless I'm still sick of hearing about all the shit you keep dishing about others without ever accpting any of your own faults. I guess it isn't hard to look right when everyone else is inclined to agree with you, solely because they're american as well, notice how all the others regardless of where they are from, (all 2 other people) agree that you're making stupidly biased opinions but oh well I'm not even sure why I bother

do your own research from another countries point of view and you'll understand where I'm coming from

How are you judging how smart American people are... by test scores, by what... Tell me! You fucking Idiot.

I have yet to see your wonderful master of a mind generate any thought of your fucking own. You can not and have yet to prove to me that you can think outside of a text book or what your teachers have instilled into your head.

Of course America is going to be proud of its gaining its freedom.. of course its going to be seen as an American Victory.. why? BECAUSE IT FUCKING WAS... asswipe...

as far as France looking up to us, they should... they should also take better notes...

Actually, the quote I posted was from a French book concerning their involvement in the American Revolutionary War.
get it together said:
no, I don't know more about america than you...
You seem to think so. You post like you think so. If you didn't think so, you would not take such issue when I refute your claims. For instance:
get it together said:
but at least I'm not subject to it's propaganda and your arguments seem to be the same to everything "we're better than you, and all the information you have is wrong" all of it is of course without having been there yourself, all the info you have is biased too, and of course in your favor simply because it's from an american standpoint wow...
But, it's not from an entirely American point of view.
get it together said:
France went into bankruptcy winning that war for you and they even garnered ideas from you, almost looking up to you...
France went into banruptcy to fund a war of revenge upon Great Britain, using our soon-to-be-citizens in their plots. They did not win a war for us.
get it together said:
and using your examples with the revolution. and the british didn't fight in the lineups either, they used tactics like that almost throughout the entire campaign in North america, quickly learning any other way wasn't as effective.
Yes, the British did fight in lineups. They were pissed when we decided not to. If you were to read the journals of some of the commanders of the time, they criticized us as "animals whose tactics are not fit for use by a great nation's army."
get it together said:
But of course I guess it's ok, that your country revolutionized the world with it's amazing tactics and unorthodox style, they were just too much for everyone alright
Well...Since armies on the European continent were still fighting in a traditional manner (lineups), I suppose so. Canada certainly did not.
get it together said:
haha wow... you're definitely a product of your makers...
As are you. I am a product of my experiences, as are you. You should see about getting a refund.
get it together said:
no, all my info is not from sites, but almost all info is one way or another biased but here's a challenge, try actually finding out the facts about the fucking war before you make any of your own declarations.
Then, from whence comes your enlightenment? I did not realize that Canadian educators teach American history. How refreshing. I hide no facts. What facts would you like to see revealed?
get it together said:
wow... ok so you mean to tell me you think your children will get nearly as good of an education as the people in the private schools with a teacher for almost everyone?
Um, yes. Which schools have that ratio? Give me some names. None of the private schools in this area have anything like that; we have several Jesuit schools that are pretty good. I would stack our districts children favorably against them any day; they national review boards do. There are a variety of other private institutions here, as well, none of whom have anything like that fantastic ratio of students to teachers. Private tutoring, where your low ratio exists, is not the same as attending a public or private school.
get it together said:
wow... if that's case I'm glad the only way I have to put up with you is on this forum, but I guess I was generaling when I said all the private schools suck, I was wrong...
I would invite you to the house, if you were in the area. I like to meet face-to-face. I suspect you'd have a good time and I would be happy to show you that Americans are not all you've heard about.
get it together said:
only the poverty strikken ones where people are doomed whether they work or not and I've taken everything in school I can about everything remotely close to this so it has nothing to do with needing more research
No one is doomed, regardless of where they go to school and grow up. That's pretty narrow thinking. You have essentially pigeonholed every poor person into the "loser" category. That's enlightened thinking.
get it together said:
haha you really think I'm jealous?
Seems like it. Glad that you are not. Jealousy is a bad thing.
get it together said:
you couldn't be more far off, I'm glad I'm not blind to my own countries mistakes, (cause there's lots of them) and I'm glad that I'll get healthcare regardless of my job,
I've already covered this. You're just too stupid or stubborn to accept what I have told you. You'd rather spend time knocking out country. That's fine. We've taken worse.
get it together said:
and I'm glad I'll get a standard level of education regardless of my station when I was born
Ah, standards. Nothing exceptional, nothing bad. Yeah. That's great. As I has stated again and again, anyone in this country who wants an education gets one. The avenues are there and they are big and well-lit.
get it together said:
and I hate to say it, but we have rich people in Canada too! it's wierd isn't? but we have al those freedoms you spoke of as well!!! now I know your probably thinking "he's lying he's lying! noone else is free like america" but it's true!
Then, what are you complaining about? Again, it looks like jealousy from here. However, you seem jealous of the wealthy in your own nation, but can't do anything about it, so you knock ours.
get it together said:
yeah... I'm very stubborn that's fine,
Yes, you are and yes, it is.
get it together said:
but your still wrong
No, I'm not.
get it together said:
and I have a clue
Then act like it....
get it together said:
and regardless I'm still sick of hearing about all the shit you keep dishing about others without ever accpting any of your own faults.
And regardless, I am still sick of hearing about all the shit you keep dishing our about our nation without ever accepting your own faults.
get it together said:
I guess it isn't hard to look right when everyone else is inclined to agree with you
I suppose it makes you feel good to be so self-righteous, crying your constant anti-American rhetoric.
get it together said:
, solely because they're american as well, notice how all the others regardless of where they are from, (all 2 other people) agree that you're making stupidly biased opinions but oh well I'm not even sure why I bother
Huh? All two other non-Americans, you mean? You are not making sense.
get it together said:

I've done plenty of research and been around the world. I know what other countries think about us. However, I find it amusing that people from all these other perfect nations still manage to emmigrate to the USA.

Of course America is going to be proud of its gaining its freedom.. of course its going to be seen as an American Victory.. why? BECAUSE IT FUCKING WAS... asswipe...

as far as France looking up to us, they should... they should also take better notes...

hmm, I'm not trying to judge how smart americans are, I already know that many in america are smarter than many of people in other nations I'm not going to deny that at all, but america also seems to have the largest ego, and in some cases I'll even admit they should, damnit, the americans have fought for what they have now, and they are still the most powerful nation in the world... it's just a shame that when that happens too many people develop too much pride and just end up pissing everyone else off.

you want thoughts of my own? that would be any I've gotten through experience... hmm... I'm not going to lie, I've never been to america, I only have to put up with much of america's media (like it or not) propaganda and other nastalgic bulshit and I'm just sick of it, YES you are the most powerful nation in the world NO, I don't care, I'm quite happy to be here in Canada where I can just sit here and judge everyone else's mistakes without accepting my own... right.. Canada definitely has it's problems (other than Quebec, which is questionable) A. Our military. West Edmonton Mall has more submarines than the Canadian navy, we don't have the tanks or technology, nor the budget that the americans have (nor do we need it) B. healthcare, yes, it's all free, but right now it's so under-budgeted there is better technology used for horses right now. C. MANY people in Canada judge the americans and wouldn't want to stick up for you in a war (which I find pathetic and despicable) not that you'd need it.. and Canadians seems almost jealous of americans in general, of thier power, weather, in many cases wealth, economy. and that's just scratching the iceburg. so no, I'm not saying America is worse off than Canada, all around they're better off, BUT the pride the americans show and the ego they've developed, and the results of all the propoganda

History is written by the winners, in this case, the americans, not one country out there (given the choice) would make themselves out to be less after winning a war. Especially because winning that war lets them tell the story how they want to.

my own views are just so far different than your own I figured the only way I'd be able to bring them down to your level is going back to the textbooks


and for ron

first of all I want to know if you have a job or if the only thing you do with your day is sit around and bitch about life on a forum arguing with a 17 year old canadian brat about america and the french

of course I don't know more about america than you, but I can apparently see all the bs they pump out better than you can, you're the perfect example of someone subject to the american media (powerful as it is) yes, you got one statement from ONE french book, (which of course, I'm going to have to take your word on)

other north american armies also fought with more guerilla tactics, it was required or many of the wars with the natives would've been over very quickly it was essential for everyone to adapt to thier methods of fighting while here or everyone would've gotten owned

of course Canda learns about american history, you're only our most important trade partner and much of our history (believe it or not) coincides, actually one of the classes I attended was all about Canada and America and how the two differ in history and what makes Canada, Canada, (pretty lame I know). but it stirs up many debates and many discussions and we actually learn from other countries views, and than are left to make our own decisions instead of being told the same stories over and over.

life isn't always sweet enough to give you a well lit path to education, no matter what country your in, you may have to take a job to support your familly, preventing you from getting the education that you'll need. than again I guess they still have the choice right? let your familly starve OR start supporting them and take some responsibility. And as you said yourself everyone is a product of thier experience, so some people are just raised with parents who don't care about them, leading them to low expectations of themselves and again continuing this cycle (but I guess the way a person is brought up and thier childhood also has nothing to do with how thier life turns out... right?)

lets see... your critisizing me about being enlightened while.... this whole thread is dedicated to knocking the french? hmmm a whole lot of enlightenment there

actually getting a chance to talk to you face to face would probably be educational, and I'd love the chance to carry this debate on with someone who does have more experience than myself. You do seem smart. hell you're smarter than me, I know that, but I don't understand your logic or how someone could have garnered the kind of ideas you seem to have.. it would be fun...

ya know, not everyone is jealous of america, I know it may seem hard to believe at first... but many aren't, I'm sure it might click in your mind sometime.... sure many people move to the good ol' U.S. of A. but there are just as many people who hate america (with reasons just as stupid as everyone here hating the french)

no Canada's not perfect, nor is any other nation and I certainly ain't, and neither are you or is your country, I'm not saying I'm better than you, or that you suck, I'm just saying that maybe you should just look around a little at the events around you, and what brought them about... than look at how your nation is portraying them
