      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Sure, educate them, but make them PAY for it. This isn't no fucking charity ward.

 

Slave labor my ass, their making good money. You should see the housing that my friend's dad has to build for the pickers in his orchards. Fawkin' nice.

 

I don't eat cake; my grandmother makes stellar marionberry pie.

 

Man, you gotta get out some more...you ever drive through a slum? You ever see pickers in southern cali and their living conditions? Trust me, they are payin', just not w/ money...

Their children will eventually become part of the system anyways and pay it back in taxes for the rest of their lives.

 

It's good business to get money up front.

I once was asked how long it takes to drive to Scotland. This was when I was a student in Louisiana. Also, I was asked if Scotland was a province of Canada or Scandinavia. I once also had someone seem amazed when I was wearing a soccer shirt from back home, that we used the same numerals as the U.S. Needless to say, I had many comments that my English was "pretty good." Most were in Louisiana, but I've also heard that comment up here.

 

haha classic! people ask me where i am from cause i speak russian with my ukranian co-worker and they will not believe me when i say i am american... too funny... it shows how few people speak foreign languages here... pathetic! rolleyes.gif

the hollywood tripe only adds insult to injury. try 1) using a disproportionate amount of world resources and 2)having a military presence in 120 nations for more salient sources of resentment.

Another one...A buddy of mine on my track team (also from Scotland) was in the treatment room. We were chatting away when some big football player came ambling up to us and said, "Say dawg, are y'all talking Brazilian and shit? Y'all look like you're from there." We of course, were talking English (with a funny accent mind you). This is all the more funny in that my buddy is the stereotypical Scotsman that's tall, hairy and red-headed.

 

Another time, we were on the bus coming back from a track meet, and I used to ride with the blacks on my team because the whites were just good old country boys and the women were stuck up southern belles. Anyway, one of the girls started going on about the honkies. I looked at her and said, "hey, watch who you're talking about." to which she replied, "Nah dawg, y'all ain't white, y'alls foreign." Great days. I miss them sometimes. bigdrink.gif

No, I don't eat canned beans. Stop stalking me, man. Wanting to give out government handouts sounds pretty liberal to me (i.e., "Big government is the solution")

I used to think that Big Government was the answer, but GW has done a pretty *masterful* job of creating his own Big Government that he's convinced me otherwise.

Ain't shit living that'll rattle me, except when a drunk Capt. Caveman rolls over onto my sleeping bag in the middle of the night.

 

ALL politicians ARE fucked up.

 

Your premise that this is "our" problem is misguided and removes the responsibility from the individual for their own life and livelihood.

While it would be untrue to claim that there are not elements of our foreign policy that those outside of our borders can be legitimately upset about, it would be equally untrue to suggest that all resentment of the United States, especially in Europe, is the product of a fair and factual analysis of every aspect of our role in the world.

 

rolleyes.gif i am bracing for your 'fair and factual' analysis

 

As others have mentioned, when it appeared that the Japaneese would be ascendant and displace the US atop the global economic hierarchy, the rise in anti-Japaneese sentiment had very little to do with the purported shortcomings of the Japaneese themselves, and everything to do with our own envy at and resentment of their success. First they build cars that last twice as long, use half the gas, and then they have the audacity to sell them to us at half the price! Damn them.

 

nevermind that a list of japanese shortcomings (notably in terms of ingerence in other nations affairs) would not compare in any ways with ours

 

You can't tell me that Europe's relative decline vis-a-vis the US and their consciousness of their rather staggering civilizational failures (WWI and WWII, Nazism, Fasism, Communism) have nothing to do with the way they feel about the US.

 

yeah right, it's their civilization, not ours as well and we had nothing to do with the failures you mentioned. give me a break!
