Well, all this anti US sentiment sort of makes me not want to post on this board.

Trust me, we're not perfect by any stretch.

Personally, I think the Tamoil logo is ugly to begin with.

well i really dont think this forum has a lot of anti-american sentiment. its like this everywhere outside the US- well...most places...

discouraging as this may be I look forward to next year's elections. the light at the end of the tunnel might very well be a train but here's to hope!

Don't worry about that mate, it's nothing against Americans, it's just that some of our more left-leaning members take issue with Corporate America's "exploitation" of the poorer sections of our world. Nobody really has anything against Americans, I mean unless you are the president of Nike or something.

ian even then we wont be anti-american :D we'd be anti commercial exploitation :D

its just that america happens to be knee deep in the soup while others just kinda dip their fingers in.

trust me if mother teresa commercially exploited anyone she'd have enemies too...

She does (or did) have enemies, or at least one...(looks confused, wonders if he is the crazy one or if it's just everyone else)...

really? like what? she had a pretty weird real name as far as i know. besides that nothing about her really bothered me...

what bones do u have to pick with her?
Just the fact that she was a Catholic missionary and to me personally, nothing could be more evil or despicable than that/

so what is it that you disagree with? her being catholic? being a catholic missionary?
Being a missionary, first of all, because I think that forcing your religion on others or coercing them to convert is one of the most evil things in the world. And to continue to answer your question would be offensive to many people I'm sure...
