    I like a lot of things about the USA. They are good neighbors to Canada overall.

    But since this is a thread for complaining, american politics on the international scene makes me wince. Obama's administration is okay, but the Bush administration was like a clown rodeo on a global stage. I'm not even going to start on the Iraq war and the transparent rationalizations the USA tried to fly by the international community for starting it.

    I think most people hate the U.S. (and a few other big countries) for geopolitical reasons. Many of the reasons are totally legitimate, too.

    If you clicked the link...

    The European Union, the United States, and Russia are the world's three largest sugar beet producers,[1] although only the European Union and Ukraine are significant exporters of sugar from beets. The U.S. harvested 1,004,600 acres (4 065 km²) of sugarbeets in 2008 alone.[2] Beet sugar accounts for 30% of the world's sugar production.

    Man, it must suck to be their neighbors...or a real estate agent in their neighborhood.

    These people are attention whores. I think it's best to just ignore them.

    In the abstract I agree. But, deaths caused by DWI would certainly shoot up. Teens are bad enough drivers as it is... maybe we could make a horse-trade in policy. Teens can start drinking at 16, but they can't drive until they're 21.

    This thread - specifically the fact you started it - made my bat senses get all crazy.

    I smell a trap...
