  2. South Koreans like to ride on the backs of Americans whether it's condemning us or wanting us to protect them from North Korea or China or stealing our technology or wholesale coopting our culture. Get off our backs already.

  3. @ Billy Crytical,
    So, that's the "truth", eh? Have u been living in a cave? No wonder the American exceptionalism is well and alive, especially among the undereducated public (Ironically, did u hear what Tim Cook said yesterday? Ya, him of all ppl! Yikes. Ref. : ) while the economy in this country is in disarray with the fiscal cliff and all.....

  6. This USN Veteran says a big f*ck you to that fat pampered Korean Rap "artist" who called for the death of U S Troops and their families during the Bush/Cheney Iraq war. Americans who buy any of his Rap Albums should be ashamed of themselves. He disguists me. F*ck him!

  7. U must have been living in a cave yourself too!
    What rap albums? What rap albums to buy with the ever almighty US dollars? It has been just measly one single all along!
    At any event, YOU can't shame a whole nation into a blind patriotism! That's a fact.

    "Fat"? Yeah, this must be a gay site! No wonder there r a whole lot more of body issues/body image problems and eating disorders among the gay men than the straight counterparts.(
    Yap, thank u for promoting more problems for us. I wonder if the meningitis could be a solution for the fatness! ;-)
