I wonder. Whenver I get on the internet, particularly Yahoo! Answers and Youtube, it's almost impossible to find American who shows respect toward any other country and acknowledge that the majority of their technology inventions and economic theories originally came from other countries. Most of them are too ignorant, jingoistic and arrogant to acknowlege the real truth about a lot of the great things (civil freedom in general, technologies, etc.) that they fortunately possess in this day and age.

Umm, I'm not sure who you've talked too, but the whole 'MURICA thing and overly-patriotic people is like a running joke between American people. Do we love our country? Why, yes. There are plenty of good things to love about it. We are blessed with what we have (though I think we are generally unhappy with the government but whatever). There are ignorant people, sure, but the statements you make are pretty ignorant themselves as you categorize us all as being what you see on Yahoo answers and Youtube and the internet.
Honestly, I'm tired of people on the internet continually bashing America into clumping us all as into a category of idiots. The vast majority of us love the rest of the world actually. People over here are especially fond of the UK for some reason. The vast majority of us do acknowledge other countries. However, we also have had quite a bit of achievements ourselves...
Why are we not allowed to proud of them? Are you not proud of your country's achievements? You sound nearly like you want us to hate our country and say it sucks, and that America has done nothing to help out anyone in the last 200 years.1
