Quiggin on America

I’ve had two Ozploggers accuse me of anti-Americanism today,
and the famous coffee dispute has also revived. So I thought I’d do one of
those self-analysis exercises where you list things you like and don’t like. It
turns out, at least by my accounting, to be a pretty even balance

Things I like about America

Things I don’t like about America

Foreign policy (under Carter & Clinton)

Foreign policy (under Reagan, Bush I, Bush II)



The First Amendment

The Second Amendment

Rock & Roll


Higher education policy

Economic policy

San Francisco


The New York Times

The Washington Times



To tip the balance, I’ll throw in the biggest cliché of the
lot. I like Americans.

Sorry about the dreadful formatting on this post. I plan to learn about HTML tables soon.
