    It was directed at a general frustration of always having to hear how it is in America in various conversations throughout my life.

    There was a comment on here about how partial birth abortions happens in the States, when in fact it's banned in the States. (Things like this).

    Don't get me wrong, I completely acknowledge we have some far right people that make me cringe but a majority are moderate (if they weren't Obama would not have been reelected).

    The far right is just very vocal, and Australian media loves it. But very few of them hold political offices.
    So similar but so different. I love yanks though and Obama is hot. Perhaps I see a spin-off coming on?

    Yes, to use a conjunction of fu#cking retard as an insult? Classy.

    Sorry everyone- but due to the awards tonight, all mods are all hands on deck.

    We unfortunately don't have the time to sift through posts tonight to see if any rules have been violated, so rather than let this pot boil over, this thread is temporarily closed until someone is able to attend to it.

    Thank you for your patience.
