I agree, Ladislav! The insecure, nationalistic thinking of most Americans is quickly becoming outdated. In an increasingly globalized and interconnected world, it's simply not to one's advantage to be an ignorant dumb ass who knows nothing about foreign countries except what his own country's propaganda tells him about them.

People need to get out there, travel, live abroad, and learn about foreign languages and cultures. The true losers will be those who have not done this.

By meeting people from other cultures you expand both your mind and your heart.

Then you get the James Bond films where at least British men are allowed to see themselves as being able to travel the world and sleep with gorgeous women..(you will NEVER see an American James bond doing the same because American women are the most jealous in the world and do not want to see American men depicted on film as being winners who get to sleep with gorgeous foreign women all the time).
o.O? Hollywood has produced a long list of movies where foreign/minority/"exotic" women were portrayed as sexual conquests by white American males.

Heck, with Avatar, we've moved into alien women too.

"Once the USA is NOT "No. 1!", what will Americans have left? Without that ability to brag about themselves, with any grain of truth, what will happen to the American Psyche?"

What's going to happen are two alternatives: 1) that at the vast majority of Americans will remain in their ignorance and continue to chest thump, bump knuckles, pump their arms in the air, and believe what they want, regardless of reality. The US will just whimper away into irrelevancy. Or 2) that the US military/government complex will continue to look for excuses to wage war on another small defenseless country, and continue to pump up their ego in the press about our military prowess. If you listen to one of the major talk radio stations in DC, their tag line is that they broadcast from "the most powerful city in the world". I'm sorry, but who gives a sh!t? Outside the Beltway, no one cares about DC, or wants to know about it. The less we hear from that place, the better for everyone.

Here is more evidence that international dating is not for losers.

Steve Neese showed me this excerpt from an INS report that he saved, regarding men who seek foreign brides.
The Men
David Jedlicka (1988, cited in Glodava and Onizuka, 1994) surveyed 607 American men seeking mail-order brides and received 206 responses. He found that the men were generally white (94 percent); highly educated (50 percent with two or more years of college, 6 percent with M.D.'s or Ph.D.'s, only five did not complete high school); politically and ideologically conservative; and generally economically and professionally successful (64 percent earned more than $20,000 a year; 42 were in professional or managerial positions).

Those men feel unappreciated. So they look for someone who would appreciate them. I am the same way.

Most guys in the US probably feel unappreciated. That report doesn't state how attractive those men were though. But the ones on Mark Davis' tour seem to look ok.

Living in the U.S. with a beautiful, loving Ukrainian wife, if anyone thinks I am a loser, I:
1) don't care,
2) question their definition of loser, and
3) enjoy the irony.

Happy people tend to be much less judging of others, so I know all I need to know about people who label others as losers.
