The true irony is that you came down on me for ignorance in International/domestic trade, yet you are as ignorant as I, when it comes to that specific subject.
Keep in mind, I am using ignorant in its truest meaning, as in, lack of knowledge, which is not a horrible thing. All people are ignorant in many subjects. You are using it in the context of a defining trait in people you 'can't stand'.
I do agree that 80% of communication is non-verbal and I did miss the tone of your arguments, but I think you did put across your message as you intended, and are trying to back pedal now.
You don't have to be a "whore mongering bigot" or a "thief", to be part of the problem. A " Cyber Bully" (I hate the term, but i am using it) that surfs around the internet looking for comments to nit-pick, holding people to a standard, that he himself can't even hold up, and demeaning them, so he can feel bigger, isn't really something you want to add to your online resume, is it?
I may be taking it personally, but your passive aggressive/straight-up agressive statements make it hard to take any other way. I'm not taking your comments any more to heart than you are taking the term "US'ers", more to that point, wouldn't that term be exactly as generalized as "US citizen/resident"...?
It's hard to name the people within the country that never gave itself a name, other than United States of (Insert continuant name here) ;) it was intended to be a quirky name to that fact. It was (obviously) not intended to offend. Just as this paragraph...if you really want to, you could try to get offended over it, but it is intended to be a lighthearted joke.
I'm sorry I wasn't the easy mark that you were hoping I would be, so I could feed your online ego. If you truly didn't intend to come across like that (only you know) then I apologize for the miscommunication, however as is, right now, I do standby my initial assessment, that I received your statements as they were intended.
