And on and on he goes ...
But you didn't really answer me Franky. Why America? Why not Syria, China, Russia, U.K., ... Why do you concentrate on the U.S.? I'm still mystified at your attention to America. Every country has problems, so that really can't be the answer as to why you bash America and no other country.
I still don't know if you are serious (despite a smiting from you : ) ). I can remember back in the late 50s and thereafter that inside and outside America there have been protests against America, its actions and politics. (You'll probably be able to find references on the web somewhere.)
It comes with the territory of being a super-power. It also comes with a belief common to all countries that if all countries were like theirs, then everything would be fine. Each nation believes this, but only a few have the means and intention of carrying it out.
I don't know what you think the world thinks of America but Frankie represents one part of the variety of opinion. I dare say you could catch him out on "What have the Americans ever done for us?" You cannot possibly argue that his view is invalid, only that it might be weighted, and only then in the areas that he has mentioned.
I don't think that you think that everyone loves America. I don't think that everyone loves the UK
Now before you lose your temper again and move into a fit of jingoism, I must make 2 points:
1. let me tell you that I am explaining to you that despite your "My country right or wrong" approach other people do have other views. He does not mean you personally. You personally are responsible for very little, if anything, that America may have regretted.
2. I have not stated my views of America and I have not sided with Frankie. Do not shoot the messenger again.
Allow me to troll you back:
The advantages of Monarchy:
Why do you want a political president? All he is, is a temporary here-today, gone tomorrow politician: he knows that regardless of what may be done, he's out of there in 8 years max. He is not the symbol of the state, to those who don’t like him, he is a symbol of all that is wrong and all that is right to those who do – he is a polarising force.
Billions taken from your pockets
are squandered every 4 years; every 4 years, the media have a feast filled with idiot pundits with vacuous opinions; but after it has all died down, it is all same, same – the game’s the same but the name has changed.
A monarch is symbol of the state. A monarch is enduring; a monarch is all that the country means to you without these arsehole, lying, self-interested, over-paid, over-privileged, squabbling, politicians. Yet some people want a "Chief Politician" Someone say like Richard Millhouse Nixon...

See the massive over-representation of Monarchies? People are happy with monarchies. OK, look at Iran, Iraq, Egypt, Syria, Libya, Russia, etc. All did away with Monarchies - are they better off? Are they happier?
HAL: Why do you hate happy people? Are you unhappy with your country? Is your frustration too much? Why do you want me to be like you?
