Half the friends I have are 'Yanks' as you put it. The one thing I am curious about though is this: why would you expect the 'Yanks' to do ANYthing for 'us'. Maybe this would be a more positive thread if you told us what you've done for yourself and others lately. That I would be interested in. This, no. Goodbye.

I think you got it wrong, Brucie, the troll asked what the "yanks" (small "y") did for "them" (whoever "us" is). No reference to the quasi-derogatory term for Emperor Bush's subjects, this - just the normal word. To which the answer therefore has to be:

Given enough yanks you could achieve nirvana. Care is needed however to avoid yanking it off its root.

OK, Gedpipes

Thanks for reminding me that I am in a blissful state achieved through diligent application of the various principia devolved from the expression that all roads lead to Bakersfield, California, and that a household full of wombats gets really messy way far fast. Having said that, allow me to offer my deepest apology for responding in such an abusive manner to the *%#$@* who started another 'let's slag the yanks' thread.

I know how my right-wing military-minded friends would respond, and I think that they have a valid point:

If not for the US, all of Europe ~ including the "British Isles" ~ might well be goosestepping and speaking German today.

I like GUEST,heric's answer better, though, listing all those blues artists. I might add a subsequent generation of R&B/RnR names without whose influence there would have been no Beatles, Stones, Kinks, Who, etc.

Well...they won quite a few ball games.

They built good clipper ships and whaling ships in New England.

They gave us Bob Dylan, Elvis, Buddy Holly, Hendrix, the Doors, Hank Williams, country music, the blues, pizza, hot dogs, popcorn, the first flyable airplane...

Not bad, actually.

well, guest interested Party, I won't avoid you and I'll tell you that if it wasn't for us, you would be speaking nothing but fluent German.

If it wasn't for us and our pact as an ally with your country, you probably would have already a few dirty bombs put right under your nose, but that hasn't happened and probably won't because Al Quaida knows we will at that point nuke them if they hurt your poor little kingdom.

Many believe that the Yanks are responsible for the DH. For that alone they deserve our ridicule.

Britain gave the world John Milton, William Shakespeare, Newtonian Physics and Common Law. We also gave it The East India Company, commercialised slavery, Sweeney Todd and Jack the Ripper. What about Germany? Gave the world Brecht, Schiller, Goethe, Einstein, Bach, Beethoven and Heinrich Heine. It also gave the world Kaiser Wilhelm II, Zyklon B gas and Adolf Hitler. I can't think of another country which has not produced good and bad on an equal scale. There is no reason to despise English because Jack the Ripper spoke it. It is also no reason to decry the German language because a neurotic little jerk like Hitler did.

Was it Oscar Wilde who said (by memory): "The United States is the only nation that went from barbarism to decadence without an intervening period of civilization"?

I believe the Brits ended slavery and actively discouraged the slave trade (The Romans never got to that) way ahead of the Yanks.

I think it probable that without the US in the 20th century the Brits would not be speaking German, but they'd be using RSL (Russian as a Second Language).

(Any why not, Russian is a SWELL language with many many folk songs)

TAK PRAVDA!

Not sure who 'us' refers to ... but a yank once gave me a good hiding in a bar in Seattle. The same night another yank gave me a blow job for only $15! So on the whole, I say they're about the same as everyone else.

If you are Irish, then you know what was done in Chicago, and other US cities, to help save the music and language of our people. That is not to say that us Yanks were solely responsible, just as we weren't solely responsible (despite what some of my countrymen believe) for the victories in Europe during two World Wars. But in all three instances, the outcome would have been very different without our contributions. I find the attempts to denigrate the contributions of the US to the world we live in to be every bit as insulting as I find the attempts by xenophobic Yanks to take credit for every good thing that has happened in the world.

Stop giving the Yanks credit for anything. Other than buying a few dozen pennants and changing the face of baseball, they had nothing to do with saving Irish music, starting or stopping wars, or anything else that has been mentioned. They should stay and rot in the Bronx for all I care.
