^Pretty much the feeling you get on how the world views the USA when you travel abroad. Our gov for years has been a giant asshole but most I've met outside of the USA love American citizens but hate our gov.

My manufacturing customers are already turning on Chinese suppliers. One last week lost his mom to the disease, so you really can’t blame him.

Hopefully they’d express even stronger dislike about a government where there are already no human rights? In China Xi and communists have already assumed their position of life long government leaders with dictatorial political powers.

Plenty wrong with our own country, but that is the case with any country. Just because China has issues, does not mean we don't. I am sure those same people that dislike our Gov and like our people, dislike other countries gov like China but like their people. Just sucks when either side acts like their side also doesn't have major issues. Shit we've likely killed more innocent people in the past 20 years (believe they estimate a million in the middle east alone) then any other country but most of the citizens in this country don't even think about that.

Ok, I hear you. Not a China apologist per se' but you are willing to blame American first?

https://youtu.be/Eb57R940xuQ

And ethnic cleansing and internment camps are proven to exist in China too, anything to do with religion is being repressed or destroyed in China. How many people? By most accounts it's millions.
Don't take my word for it this is the official accounts by the Council of Foreign Relations and Amnesty International.
So, sure America has it's faults but seriously, who are you defending when you say that America has it's problems too?

Simple reality is that the U.S. is somewhere between the best ever and the worst ever, and it's not a stretch to say we haven't shown our best face to the world over the past few years.

I never said that, dont twist my words.
I am not blaming America or apologizing for China, I think both countries suck.
China for not being honest about this stuff, and human rights violations.
America for being the assholes that we are.
Both suck in my book.

To be clear I mean our gov, not the people. Nothing but love for fellow Americans and people from around the world.

I just dont pretend we are some perfect country without flaws.
I travel abroad a good amount and that is basically the worlds view of us, we are assholes (Even citizens from countries who are our allies say it) but the people are great. I think the same thing about a lot of countries though, not just ours. I'm a bit of a hippy and wish we (all countries) could all just get along and mind our own business but sadly we all know that wont happen.

You guys don't make very nice confectionary, in my opinion. That's my only gripe. Maybe it was the heat in Florida when I was there, but none of it was very appetising at all.

I'll give you your due where Twinkies are concerned (and Ding Dongs, at a push), otherwise a lot of work to be done.

Happy 4/20 y'all! So glad cannabis stores are considered essential where I live!
Its 4/20 all month and that makes me very happy.
Sad though, 4/20 with no friends.
However if a few months ago I would have told you or you would have told me that we would get paid to sit at home all month and smoke weed on 4 (April)/20 I would have said you smoked too much weed and were full of shit and yet here we are. lol

The Daily Kos is worse than cancer.

And Germany with their literal East German/DDR Stasi agent Frau Merkel is calling others stupid??? Her family VOLUNTARILY moved from West Germany to East Germany!!! They were probably the only West German family to immigrate to East Germany.

😂🤣😂🤣😂

Talk about the pot calling the kettle black.

The irony of that sign is that in demanding he get liberty (which was never taken), he upped his chances of getting COVID-19. There's no "or" about it.

I just hope he doesn't live with his grandparents.

So... You start with Germany, then move to their leader and call them stupid because she is seemingly stupid because HER FAMILY moved from West to East Germany when she was 3 months old?

You really better stick to shaving eyebrows, dude.

That being said, that border joke meme is on a very similar level of thickness.
