Americans are NOT stupid - discuss!

Postby Keejit » Thu Jan 24, 2008 12:58 pm

This was made by a news comedy show (similar to The Daily Show) called CCCN in Australia. It a few years old. They questioned people on the streets of Washington DC.

Now everyone - think of a country beginning with the letter 'U'...

I know English isn't your first language (tho you write it very well) but the 'axes of evil' is adorable - kinda makes more sense too!

We are in the axis of lying liars though. Michael Moore said so, and he speaks the truth!

To me, each country has its share of stupid people. Others like pointing out the flaws in Americans, especially because a lot of people are cocky just because they live in a representative democracy with more relative freedom than other countries. Things just seem to work out that way. The seemingly less-than-competent representatives in the government isn't helping the US's image, though.

to cheer you up, for all german-speaking people:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qWdHY2VvLE0
they intervierw pupils from germany.

one dialogue i translated so you can have fun, too:

Interviewer: so which country does george w. bush come from?
Pupil: uhm.... he speaks american english, so he's definately not german.
I: thats right. which country then?
P: great britian, i suppose.
I: and saddam hussein, where does he come from?
P: he speaks the same language, so from the same town, then. id go for great britian this time, too. or america. no idea.
I: so in the war america vs. irak, where do the rulers from these countries come?
P: uhhm... that's a hard one.... i saw that on tv, but i have no idea who exactly is doing what.
I: okay. *sighs* so what is george bush's surname?
P: uhm... ohh... i know his name is george bush, but about his surname i dont have a clue.
I: and whats saddam husseins first name?
P: no idea, really. i generally know just the surnames of these guys i see on the news.


a proof that every country has its not-so-bright people.

I'm not bragging (I hate braggers, thats why the world hates us.), but we can't be that stupid if we are the worlds biggest influence. That would be bad for the rest of the world.

(For good, or for bad, America does have the biggest influence on the world.)

well, you cant really say that as an argument. imagine, americans would be that stupid. imagine america would have a bad influence on the world. how would we know? america could have a bad influence on the world right now, and we wouldnt notice, because we have nothing to compare that to.
