Yeah, just like that American professor who condemmed American foreign policy for being the cause of the anti-american terrorism. The guy was fired and the governement stopped the article from obtainning proper publicity.

Just like the Anericans who check if any mad cow can be found in their stock. A retired American worker stated clearly on Canadian television there were many cases that could have been mad cow but they were told not to look, verify, or mention any of them while givin the distinct impression that if they opened their mouthes about it, they'd be fired. The only reason this guy spoke up was because he was already retired. (He stated this reason)

Just like the people who speak badly of Bush and have policemen show up on their doorsteps at dinner?

Freedom of speech eh???  

You mean you Americans actually believe all the propaganda?

And no other country having true freedom rights? Rofl, ever heard of europe? Of Canada?

We are all a result of what we have lived. Culture, attitude, perspective. For everything we do, there is a reason. There is no true evil, only the absence of proper communication.

Can you get me a article about that professor?

I can see why about that mad cow, it was wrong to do, but it would really hurt the economy right now if anything got out like that. Strange part is the news was talking about mad cow in America a few months ago and the cows being killed, so how recent is that, becaus ethe other case is pretty recent.

And about people critizing Bush, I haven't seen CNN go off the air yet and they are always talking down on him. How hes making bad decisions on the economy, about rushing the war without any plan, when the war first started they were talking about the possibility of him just trying to finish his fathers job because they said on CNN that there were atleast 25 other nations that could be considered a bigger threat then Iraq, and to things as weird of him not turning on the gyro in the Segways because it might take away the need for oil in the future and Cheny as we know is in that business or was. So I still see CNN and usually propaganda supports the gov't, the only real news station that is really pro bush is fox news.

If you, golden Phalaxe, are talking about Churchill, I'd just like to point out that HE WAS A TERRORIST!!!!  He incited terror and he actually said what the terrorists were doing was alright.  Any country with a sane leader would do so.  It was not because the gov't  did not like what he was saying but that it was untrue and was an act of treason!

Well theres a Neo-Nazi leader right now who talks about destroying the gov't and has followers who have arrsenals of weapons and he hasn't been arrested yet, some of his followers have though. So that guy must have said something that really hit a nerve, the gov't probably knows more and isn't saying anything about that guy(professor).

Umm, that doesn't make one a terroist.

And AFAIK, he still has his job (at least according to a thread i read on another forum yesterday), if he loses it, it will be over plagerism and lying about his background, technicly, though his employers being sick of all the bad publicity will be the real motive.

The United States does enjoy an almost unlimited amount of freedom of speech. Lately the religious fascists are chipping at it using indencency as their weapon. This is something to worry about. But besides that, anyone can say anything they want.

You have to give me more background to talk about the case of that professor. I remember the issue in a different way, but lately am suffering from allergies, and it messes up my memory.

The case with the meat inspectors is not a case of speech censorship from the government, but of corruption of the agency in charged of meat safety.

Most European countries have state censorship through hate speech codes. Germany comes to mind. Britain 's speech suffers from strong liabel laws. Liabel laws are extremely weak in the U.S., allowing most people to say anything they want about public figures as long as it is true or the person is so famous that they can use a public forum to defend themselves.

Canada has government regulated censorship in the form of hate speech codes. That is why you guys have not listened to a satirist like Howard Stern in about 10 years.

The Christian Taliban has successfuly taken away our right to enjoy smut as political payback for their backing of Bush Since they conquered on radio, they want to control content on cable and satellite radio. That is where the ACLU comes into place. By challenging these idiotic rules all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court, the court can rule them unconstitutional and strike them down. Hence my love for the ACLU.
To judge the fatherless and the oppressed, that the man of the earth may no more oppress.

and what does this have to do with the topic?

Is it because Americans are especially insecure about themselves and feel they need validation by others or that Europeans are too arrogant and snobbish to even consider the rest of the world, or a bit of both?

 
 
They've been treated as " country cousins " by the Europeans LOL.
 
One Irish descent told me that some English regard Americans as " colonists " !
 
I've also heard there have been individual Americans fudged nationality to Canadian to avoid unpleasant attitudes ( anti-American sentiments ) from French locals while living in France.
