Why do foreigners feel comfortable dictating what people in the US do?

I belong to a few travel boards. It’s reached a fever pitch now with Covid, but has been going on since the 2016 election. That is, foreigners, particularly Canadiens and Brits mouthing off about the politics in the US.

Like it’s any of their fucking business. Do I go telling them what to do? Hell no.

Lots of blabbing now about why on earth anyone in the US would travel and how nuts we are.

I wonder if it’s the CNN influence. I got in a squabble with someone about that and told him he didn’t know what he’s talking about and that CNN is propaganda. He told me he’s not an idiot and could figure it out and goes on to wonder why there wasn’t a federal ordered quarantine apparently not realizing that there’s really large parts of the US with small populations and largely unaffected by Covid.

He didn’t respond. I was disappointed in his failure to acknowledge his CNN induced ignorance.

Zombifying the populace with propaganda is what it is all about. Remember the saying that they know when they have succeeded when the things that everybody believes without question are all false. It is frustrating when the pod people have so many false things they believe in, and the inability to sense when they participate in their own doom. The propagandists provide them with what psychology would call 'security operations' to reassure them to the slaughter that they are dogmatically correct.

I would say they are at least 65 percent there. With Covid, maybe more.

I think at least partially that the free information on the internet has the control elements in a panic, because the control of the organs of media is incomplete. It could be why they have precipitated the Orwellian Agenda through Covid/programmed and financed riots etc. rather precipitously and shown the calloused brains and hands of the psychopaths in the shadows. A populace that can weigh and measure and decide for themselves, even in a small plurality, is a dire threat.

Yes that shit has gotten old. I tell them flat out they get no say. Their kids born here does, but they don't.

While in Australia I had a conversation with one French cunt (of male kind). Once he learned that I'm from US he felt obligated to inform me that he would never visit US due to all the mass shootings and the fear of being murdered randomly in some nightclub or concert. I asked him immediately if this means he's not going back to France and pointed to all the people killed in mass murder in that Paris theatre (Bataclan?)? He said it was different and stormed off.

To be fair, the operation of the USA has major effects on the rest of the world. The Brits and Canucks are reliant on the USA for very-low-cost military protection and drug research. Canada's largest trade partner is by far the USA. The USA controls the reserve currency.

With all that great stuff, you'd think they would be grateful, but I think after a few centuries of easy living they have come to expect these things and aren't quite so appreciative. Obama gave away the USA's leadership role in DNS, which is too bad, since it's now not covered under the constitution. Plus, it might have been fun to temporarily turn off DNS lookups for non-US domains for a little while, since it was only USA taxpayers that were keeping that "free" service going.

This is where I say ... 'whatever' because it really doesn't matter to me at where someone wants to spend his tourist dollars.

Not just that but Nevada cathouses start at $500/hr, for a women who'd only be able to command $250/hr in Montreal.

Next time ask if anyone get nominated by any party without murdering few dozen and move few $mil offshore for starters and get elected who promise the maximum welfare to lazy. Most don't realize the head is in deep sand and know nothing about any country including the one they fled from. India is still a socialist hellhole.

Foreigners deep down wish they were Americans.
So, they are interested in our politics.
Conversely, we Americans don’t care about the politics of other countries. Why should we?
I explained it once to my father thus; “The USA has either kicked their ass or saved their ass from someone. This can cause a little bit of resentment.”
Of course, there are lots of countries which don’t fall into the two categories above; they don’t matter at all to us.
Ask yourself, do you have any interest in the politics of Bangladesh? How about Pakistan?
I never listen to what any foreigner has to say about the USA.

If let's say Australia, Germany, and New Zealand tried to outlaw prostitution, I'd be very concerned.

Remind the brits that THEY are the reason we have guns. Then mention something about if it wasn't for us, they would be speaking German...

Ppl, be honest with yourself ... Admiral DeGrasse (of the French navy) sank the British fleet, on the way to Yorktown to relieve Lord Cornwallis.

So in effect, the 2nd true victory (Saratoga was the 1st) and the one which secured independence, was a collaborative effort between nations.

And then afterwards, we can talk about the Argonne Forest and everything which followed.

Thus, unlike a lot of you, I ask the French this question? ... since Yorktown, what have you done?

Cantigny, Belleau Woods, Saint-Mihiel, Argonne Forest (all WWI) and then, the Battle of Normandy (WWII) were all American efforts.
