All the way back to you: I have dozens of american friends I enjoy/ed Baseball and Football with since the 80s. You don´t know me, and I don´t give a phuck if you know germans or not. All you did was hitting out against a whole country. Period.aphronesis said:You're don't do well with nuance it seems. One, let's not have to drag up the countless posts you've made slamming this country--not that I care (let's note also that the best you can do is fall back on LA and GWB--as I said: heavy handed irrelevant cliches); two, it was rhetorical, three, I can name dozens (personally) and no doubt thousands of Germans with whom it sat well, but within the intellectual culture at large, it's an uneasy reception.
That's not hitting out. It's an observation. Of difference. You should try it sometime.
