Aw they don’t like US


“Discover America Partnership released the result of a global survey on Monday which showed that international travelers see the United States as the world’s worst country in terms of getting a visa and, once you have it, making your way past rude immigration officials.
U.S. is most unfriendly country to visitors, survey says

More than half of the travelers surveyed said U.S. immigration officials were rude and two-thirds said they feared they would be detained on arriving in the United States for a simple mistake in their paperwork or for saying the wrong thing to an immigration official…

With about 50 million visitors a year, the United States is the world’s third most-popular destination, after Spain and France.

“The problem is that since September 11, this country has viewed visitors more as a threat than an opportunity,” Freeman said. “The entry process has created a climate of fear and frustration that is keeping foreign visitors away.”

As I’ve said often, the worst challenges from which we suffer do not come from without. They come from within.

Saying the wrong thing to an immigration official. Hmmm.
Let’s just laugh it off shall we. Invite the perp for donuts and coffee, on us eh?
After all……..
What’s a little ji-had joke among friends right?

But of course.
We shouldn’t excercise vigilance against terrorism, or tyranny. Because, er, well because, if we do………they won’t like us. Whaaaaaaaa.

Heck, let’s just ignore the stone-age tyrants shall we.

“a climate of fear and frustration that is keeping foreign visitors away”..
Well isn’t that special.
I wonder why we have a climate of fear……Gee. That’s a tough one. Any theories sweet friends? wtcani88.gif

In the wild, wild West, vigilante justice arose because the legal system wouldn’t take care of murderers, horse thieves, and common criminals.

So, guess what.
The people themselves decided to mete out frontier justice on their own in order to protect their families.

But we shouldn’t even allow immigration officials to do their job? airplaneani.gif

The threat has already moved closer to our front yards by sneaking in through the judiciary. But, that’s o.k. Just smile and nod.

Let’s just let the prophets of hate become a protected minority with a separate legal system and culture, with all the fringe benefits; You know:
honor killing, wife abuse, rape, torture, and forced conversions, the usual.

And while wer’e at it, let’s forget all those lost in flight 93 and 175, the USS Cole, the embassy bombings, the murders and beheadings of Nick Berg, Daniel Pearl, and all the others. Whaddya say?


Heck..Step right up. Visas for all!

Let the wacademic, self-loathing ceremonies begin. bombsani.gif

    Those original immigrants coming through Ellis Island also feared they would be rejected over small things. the actual rejection rate at Ellis was lell than two per cent.

    I apologize in advance for stealing your global whining image. I’ll feel terrible every time I use it!

    It’s been pointed out in other discussions how the headline of that news report was misleading.

    It wasn’t the Americans who were perceived as “unfriendly”, but the officials at the airports.

    Foreign visitors aren’t the only ones who experience fear and revulsion when dealing with airport personnel and federal agents.

    As a native American, I refuse to patronize airports or commercial airlines.

    I think it’s criminal the way airports and airlines treat American citizens, and it’s even more abominable how American citizens are passively acquiescing to such abuse.

    I want to see commercial airlines put out of business, airports shut down, and every F.A.A. bureaucrat arrested and prosecuted.

    As for myself, when travelling, I’ll drive or take the train.

    AMTRAK keeps bragging that they’ll abuse passengers the same way the airports do, but when I recently rode the AMTRAK “Capitol Limited” and the AMTRAK “California Zephyr”, I had no problems at all.

    There were no searches or hassles.

    It’s still possible to wear a concealed firearm when travelling by train, at least, until some idiot decides to ruin it.

    No, I don’t accept the argument that the events of 11 September 2001 justify giving up our inalienable rights as individuals, nor is it a reason for suspending or ignoring the “CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES”.

    Them there’s my two cents worth.

    Thank you.

    Clearly, these people have never been to France.

    John Robert Mallernee,

    I hope you are blessed and are not on a train that either gets blown up or gassed. I am sure you will probably complain about the lack of security after that happens.

  7. daniel says:

    Like he said his comment was worth 2 cents.

    I have never had any problems or hassles at airports.
    Some Libs say they are ‘terrorized’ at airports.
    a little common sense dictates cautionary measures.

    I intend to take Amtrak across country, and looking forward to it.

    Thank y’all for the input and different points of view! ;)

  9. KKarrLMmM says:

    Boo Hoo…there is something about being disliked by my enemies…that feels so good!!!!
    Keep up the good work Angel, and super congrats on all the acknowledgements….

  10. Brooke says:

    It’s about time we realized that ‘they’ aren’t going to like us no matter what, so we may as well stop worrying about it and get down to business!

    Besides, I’m all for a little healthy FEAR!

  11. Nazareth says:

    I dislike being disliked, unless of course they dislike what I like to dislike- ouch, that hurt!~

  12. kerwin says:

    We liked their input so well that we instituted stricter passport laws. Welcome to America but don’t come to take away our security and happiness.

  13. InRussetShadows says:

    If they don’t like America, then why are they visiting it? I don’t think that makes sense, even for a Europanzy. Now if they’re complaining about the security procedures, then I couldn’t care less. I’m much more in favor of targetting the potential suspects all out and leaving the rest of us alone. As far as I’m concerned, the potential suspects include ALL FOREIGNERS.

  14. Angel says:

    Amen RS,…and thanks again for the insights everyone! :)

    Thank You, John Robert Mallernee. You made a point i believe in, and did it without attacking anyone else’s ideas. Th United States Constitution or its amendments do not have a war time exception. What they do have is an exception for innseruction or rebbelion. That’s why Abraham Lincoln was able to suspend Habeas Corpus during the civil war
