So do many other interest and identity groups. Complaint is our political lingua franca: it's what Occupiers, Tea Partiers, Wall Street titans, religious and irreligious people share.

Please explain how the poor of China, India and other developing countries pay for Americans to sit on their arse. If they are poor, laboring mightily, under compensated, being exploited ... do you really think America is to blame? You've been drinking the kool aid again straa. Here's a hint ... the people exploiting those people live in the same country they do. Oh ... I know there's plenty who escape. They help exploit the poor, get rich, move away, blame America. It's fun, it's profitable and it's a hell of a lot safer than accepting personal responsibility or doing anything about it. Barefoot calls you "Packy" why is that? Are you from Pakistan and living in the UK?
America lives off the money of developing countries, that is a fact, it is them who you owe unbelievable amounts of money too, America lives off the work of poor people in developing nations, and has done for years now

Because he's a racist goon, typically American, who doesn't know the difference between an Indian and a Pakistani, I have lived in Britain for over a decade, and am considered British by everyone that matters

It being true is what makes it true, America is the mist indebted nation on earth, who do you owe all that money to, who is it that you have to borrow off every single day just to exist, that's right, developing countries with large poor populations, they pay your bills, that truth is an inescapable fact

I see. So you've bailed out on your country, taking skills with you that could ease the plight of the poor and allay your guilt by blaming America. Sweet.

You're audacious ... I'll give ya that.

So let me get this straight. We borrow money from "developing countries with large poor populations" and that makes us evil. Right? Where did the governments of those developing countries get the money to loan? Having America owe you something doesn't sound too exploitative to me. You don't recognize the bad guys in this game do you? Until you do, you're part of the problem. Sad.

I will sit here and tremble in fear waiting for you, or then again, maybe I won't, what do you think

I think you are a silly spiteful little, Englishman.
Who has let some other man rob him of any decency or honor he might have once had.
But you are beneath the admiration of the heros you address,
and I will command your attention .
You will understand the solidity of the steel in my words.
Even correspondance with the likes of you ,is beneth my position. You are so far from the Code of Chivalry, surely you must be from some heathen's spawn. Begone with your pleasantries.
Act like a man or please prepare yourself to face the trials.

Firstly I'm not English, I'm Indian but have a British passport, secondly I have no idea what your sentence means, does it need to be deciphered

Aw, you are truly hurt by looking so foolish, you should just stop looking foolish instead of blaming everyone else for it.

I wish I had gained weight. Why do you have to remind me of how bony I am? That's not very nice.

Gosh... what can I say?
He said hamburger, not Big Mac.

This is a hamburger:

This is a Big Mac:

http://www.mcdonalds.com/us/en/food/product_n...

A hamburger here is 99 $0.99. A Big Mac is $2.99.

Once again, you prove your stupidity.

We are comparing the price of Big Macs- a very specific burger, a very specific product, do follow the thread, I can get... well at some time I could get a White Castle burger 4 for $1, so what?
He said you could buy a HAMBURGER for 59p there. You posted the price of Big Mac's and remarked 'what can I say'. You could say that you can't read or you could be honest and say you are just stupid. I vote for the latter.

The Big Mac might be more in places because of the price of the additional food items to prepare it. A hamburger has catsup, onion and mustard. The Big Mac has cheese, two beef patties and 3 slices of bread. New York's Big Mac is more costly than Atlanta's Big Mac because lettuce and cheese are less here.

You are truly a one trick pony. And that trick has grown old and the horse crippled.
