NBA players have a rich and hilarious history of not being up to speed on their foreign surroundings, and Rudy Gay is the latest to add to that tradition. (Via YBB):

Regarding public education in usa: its not simple at all. Its not just ‘american education sucks thats why youre all dumb’. The powers that be do not want an educated peoples. They spend billions on war, billions against drugs, billions in bailouts. They could easily fix the sihtty edu system, but they dont want to. The govt wants people to be ignorant of the true reality. They dont want people to realize weve been and are currently being fleeced in a major way. Whats that malcolm x quote? Weve been took, had, hoodwinked, bamboozled? The tv news, newspaper, etc is mostly propaganda. The entire political system is rigged. Voting changes nothing, except some on the local level. Two party system is really a one party system. It is fake. They want us divided and illinformed, it is working. This illusion of choosing our leaders and having a say is a total shamockery. Im sure allenp will agree with all this. ………… As someone mentioned earlier, the size of usa is a factor in why many dont care about europe etc. The different regions in usa are almost different countries. Its annoying when euros etc act like their siht dont stink. Your country isnt perfect.
Agree with tsi on many points.
Again, shout out to the Illuminati.
America the greatest country the world has ever witnessed?Thats why everyone hates you. You cant say Americans arent ignorant your being ignorant right now. For example, Americans were too ignorant to play Football, Rugby with the rest of the world so they invented their own sport and couldnt even come up with a better name than Football(despite the fact there isnt much kicking involved anyway) The greatest country the world has ever witnessed doesnt give the world the Nuclear Weapons,the Cold War,the guy whos burning the Korans and the KKK. The greatest conutry in the world doesnt have widespread poverty,obesity,and racism a mostly terrible education system, and it doesnt deprive its citizens of free health care for fear of being communist. Few American politicians have ever asked themselves if Communism is really that bad,and when Brandon Roy missed the national anthem to pray instead, he was suddenly called a Communist.When asked who their country should invade next in the war on terror, one american said france and another said Italy.Its really not much to be proud of. I’m British and if i asked most of my mates, then they’d say they think most Americans are douches.To be honest the average Briton thinks the average American is fat, dumb and ignorant. I’m not saying the USA is the worst place in the world, but if i have a choice to live anywhere in the world i’d probably say Australlia, or Britain.
You are misguided.
YOU sound ignorant with your generalizations.
You do not know where I live, or where I am from.
The United States has the clout to “invent their own sport”.
If one desires to play football, they go to America.
It seems you have not read up on the history of nuclear technology. Everyone wanted the bomb.
America was shrewd enough… to get it.
Yale, Harvard, Princeton, etc. are three of the greatest educational institutions in the world. They are American.
People who rule the world went to those schools.
Also, finally, it does not really matter how one feels about another. I’m sure many people feel similarly towards each other.
It cancels each other out in the big picture.
You are jealous.
Jealous?What of? Having free health care when you have to pay?Look im not saying that the US is the worst country in the world, it would probably be in my top 15 countries i’d want to live in,but surely you must accept that that there are better places to live in. I’m not generalizing, i said widespread. Just saying that by comparison with other western countries the US records on many of these things arent as good. And arent Harvard, Yale and Princeton all Unis i meant secondary education, cos without that,whats the point in University?And it maybe that becuase of what you have been taught that America is the greatest etc in school you havent given much thought to whether this is actually true or not and are therefore dismissing my arguments as ignorant and jealous. GB doesnt have much that America doesnt in the way of helping you in life. What do you mean the USA has the clout to invent their own sport? GB invented Football(Real Football), Rugby, Cricket, badminton, Table Tennis, etc. These are sports played throughout the world by many more countries than say American Football or Baseball(Though Basketball is awesome)
You just said that because Americans don’t play with the rest of the world, so they invent their own sport. You have a tinge of contradiction.
Great Britain has some of the highest taxes in the world, no?
Secondary educations in the United States is about the individual who is raising the child. Enough information and resources are out there for many people to get a decent education. Even outside of America.
Also, I have thought about and researched my claim as America being the greatest country in the world.
Maybe you should do more research.
As for your jealousy, maybe I’m inaccurate on that, but when you question one’s intellect on a topic, you must at least expect a negative response. Jealousy can breed negativity.
In conclusion, again, you must do your research. Today’s vision and perception on the U.S. is skewed.
Though it is by design.
There is a big picture to this, and again, The United States is/will/and will continue to draw that picture.
And, the world knows it.
You do, too.
Philosopher has some valid points, but his arrogance is over the top, as is jds. So, perfect match. Oh jd, how u enjoy millions of cameras everywhere watching and tracking ur every move?

My arrogance is… legendary.
