Why Americans still seem shocked every time someone goes on a shooting spree.
What is it exactly you aren't understanding about it that the rest of us are?
(Yes I know it happens elsewhere, but no where near the frequency)
I wonder why the American government pretends to care about morality and censors sex and swearing on TV and radio, But allows Hollywood to produce
Movies rife with senseless almost casual violence , teen sex and party films , and movies with language that would make a sailor blush, and lets them loose on the same population as well as the rest of the world.
The USA is also the world's largest producer of Pornography, and Americans regularly top world surveys in amount of sexual partners.
Yet there is the culture of puritanism and righteousness. It's so hypocritical it makes me want puke.
Again they act shocked when they find out their president fucks like everyone else?
Meanwhile for the next year every porn movie involves a cigar.
I wonder how a person can get 7 years for murder, 15 years for tax fraud and 20 years for pot possession. True story .. I read all 3 articles on the same page one day reading a paper in Port Huron MI.
The racism in that country is unique and cultural as well. There is racism and then there is US style racism.
I want to say nice things too.. because the USA is not all shit and has produced some of the most awesome people alive..
And that is the USA's greatest resource.. Its people.
Individually you guys rock.
There is something not quite right on the collective level.
I live in America, and was born in America, but I do not call myself American - nor do I wish to be called this by others. I take no pride in others, I take no pride in this peice of land, or in our form of government. To have pride in these things is to give away your own.
I should not be defined by my place of birth, by others, and their ideas of how this or that should or should not be. I am somehow debted, and destined to be a part of, a system that has forced itself upon me - I have expectations forced upon me that I have no intention of meeting.
I am nothing. You do cannot define me. Fuck the majority.
America is rotting in a pile of it's own worthless rumination, and it will continue to do so long after I've passed on. Fuck amuuricahhh - land of the free[so long as you do what we tell you].
*gives applause and standing ovation*
also, jock the motie and whatever listed a lot of what i was thinking.
