Here is a classic example of why I have absolutely never been in a Starbucks Coffee shop, or ever intend to do so in the future. Obviously they speak a different form of English than I do. S18

Starbucks Bans Plastic Straws, Winds Up Using More Plastic. A Reason investigation reveals that the coffee giant's new cold drink lids use more plastic than the old straw/lid combo.

The company is suspect, I agree, but the idea of producing good-tasting drinks is okay.

I'd prefer a store that sells Kona coffee at a reasonable price, but no one's done that yet. Everything else is just economics.

The entire culture at least British and USA is being ruled by a judgmental mob mentality. The state may not persecute us, but, our neighbors are going to.

And nobody else is?   Are you kidding me Patrick?  

Had you ever bothered to educate yourself better, you would know that the Anglo-Saxon heritage is one of the LEAST Judgmental mob mentalities.  It was and still is based on representation and the ability to represent one's self before one's peers.  Its where we got that little thing called "Common Law", which was like none other in the world.  

Educate thyself, for G-d's sake.  

Hey look Patrick, if you really do Hate us like you keep demonstrating, then why do you even bother living amongst such sorry barbarians?  Surely there has to be that perfect society where you can escape and live the remaining years of your life in bliss.

John,

You yourself posted evidence of the mob pc mentality in the English world vis a vis that youtube hero above. This thread is titled :political correctness versus common sense.

When I share your concerns, suddenly you get defensive and resort to your tired and inaccurate slavish view of us as superior people.

We're so far downhill it's beyond obvious in this regard, you cannot go eat out w/o being attacked now and still Americans are superior beings with you.

That's just stupid. You are going to wake up from this nightmare some day , but, I think it may be when you're in the afterlife.


Yea, you're right partially, other cultures also suck.

This is where you fail to understand my continued attempt to point things out.  I never, Ever, even insinuated that we were superior to others.  Instead, we are living under a better form of government, thanks to our Founders, and our Anglo-Saxon heritage.  

This is why so many are "Climbing Italian Marble" to get here, because it offers them Liberty.  Also, the only reason why all those immigrants are crowding into Europe is because crossing the Mediterranean is far easier than crossing the Atlantic.

We are NOT superior people.  We are just fortunate people, living under a superior system, based upon Individual Liberty. My question is "Are you Ever going to Get It"?

American exceptionalism. I guess we can define it differently, it smacks of superiority thinking like Germany Uber Alles to me.

Here's a statement Obama used and Obama was considered anti American by many:

“America is not the world’s policeman. Terrible things happen across the globe, and it is beyond our means to right every wrong,” Obama said. “ But when, with modest effort and risk, we can stop children from being gassed to death, and thereby make our own children safer over the long run, I believe we should act.” He added: "That’s what makes America different. That’s what makes us exceptional.”

The willingness to kill 5000 miles from here because we think it is intrinsic good makes us exceptional. WE get to decide what is good, no one else, correct?

That's dangerous cause "good" might be killing you and I for our faith from some folks.

In helping those Syrian kids from being gassed, Obama whether on purpose or not, empowered Sunni jihadists to create death and chaos in Syria such that it extended a war that would have been over by late 2012 w/o outside assistance to this murderous thing in 2018 where there theoretically could be a world war occur.

He also does not mention the gas more than likely was from Sunni Muslim Jihadists, not Assad.

In Syria specifically it's easy to see how the desire to do "good" can be used by the devil to generate bad. Some Christians have been crucified in Syria over the Sunni Muslim jihad empowerment program the USA is part of.

See why I think it's always wrong to kill unless it's self defense and you know it's self defense? Like you can see a man trying to rape or murder a woman in your neighborhood? This is why.

We cannot know what's the reality is 5000 miles from here w/o living there personally and if you think our security apparatus is based on truth, think again. It's based on advancing the interests of Uncle Sam, lies, truth, violence, peace, payoffs whatever it takes.

Is our constitutional way better than many other states? I'm just not so sure. It's always up to the various state agents to live within that thing and sometimes they don't. Are you freer here than Canada or Switzerland or Burma from the state?

I say the US is more likely to steal from you or imprison you falsely than China or Iraq is.

Of course we are looking at things differently. When I hear "American Exceptionalism" I am reminded of the Liberty we enjoy, which allows us to do exceptional things.

Its the System, not the people, that allows Americans to do exceptional things. That is what you either are unable, or unwilling, to understand Patrick.

Sigh,.............I give up. Gah

What can anything John explained be misunderstood, or argued? America is the only nation which puts sovereignty of the individual above the sovereignty of the State. People are people, and neither time nor location makes them different. It is only how and what they are allowed to be that matters.

Yes, there are bad actors everywhere. The difference is that in most other places the bad actors can gain control of the State and nothing can restrain them.
