Poland has long had the reputaiton of being one of the world's most pro-American countries. Is that still the case or is ove for America waning? If so, what are its symptoms?

Is there much of a backlash against American cultrual imperialism (McDonaldisation, Hollywood, MTV, Halloween, Valentine's, etc.)?
Do Poles resent American visas, lack of F16 offset, Obama's failure to visit, foot-dragging on the anti-missile shield, etc.?

Where'd you get that from?.
I would say Poland is pro U.S. but not the World's most pro, U.S. country.

America is the continents of North America and South America, I believe you mean the U.S.

McDonaldisation

shyte

Why then is it always packed?.
Just people complaining? :)

Hollywood getting worse and worse

Yeah but their animation seems to be getting better.
And after the same formula for so long, it gets boring, same story, same characters over and over...

MTV

wheres the good old mtv

I want my MTV, hahaha

Halloween

That's an Irish pre-Christian tradition.

Valentine's

Is probably the worst of the lot (not Irish ;)
