Mass immigration.

A barmpot idea championed by faceless businessmen who constantly lobby our government for still more. Plus total contempt for the democratic right of the people to decide who does and doesn't come into the country, and how many.

We in England have recently seen how bad an idea this is.

The thing I hate most about Canada, More specifically Ontario is the price of booze.
Because it's the easiest way to explain how much we take it up the pooper from Politicians and taxes.
So a 60 of Canadian Club is 58 dollars at the LCBO ( a government control board for Alcohol ) here in Canada. But if I drive to Buffalo it's 18.99 for a 60 of the same damn bottle.
That's a lot of taxes.

Really short food growing season, too cold too long, really expensive Internet/cellular fees. Fees on all our heating bills. Expensive gas.
Lots of leftover land is great in a big country, but there's not enough population to run the country less expensively...
USA to the immediate south, Russia to the immediate north/south. We're in between two nations that have decided to be enemies to each other.

Yes. That and the fact that there's millions unemployed, there's a shortage of housing, its the sick and disabled who are neglected and starved to death but, for some strange reason, some genius thinks that the economy benefits from more people!!!

-Politicians are no longer protecting citizen's rights and listening to the needs of the people.

-Citizens are over-burdened with Federal taxes, State taxes and property taxes. In some cases we're double and triple taxed on things we've already paid taxes on the full purchased value.

-Government is overstepping their regulations and getting involved in peoples personal lives.

-Consumers are being taken advantage of and corporations, bankers and the elite are manipulating and buying out our representatives.

-Politicians and the elite are not held to the same justice system as the rest of us.

-You need to have a war chest of money and be a millionaire to run for a political office.

-The Political party system is dividing us as a nation and causing grid-lock in the Congress.

-Self-serving politicians who think they have a right to make a political career out of a job that should be temporary. No other temporary job provides a pension, great benefits and salaries that are above and beyond the majority of hard working Americans. Geriatric representatives don't provide for new ideas and sharp minds.

-Our foreign policy has become too invasive in other country's affairs. Policing the world is costing the American tax payer $$$$ and creating more enemies.

-We spend more money on a war machine, overseas military bases and foreign aid than our own citizens here at home.

Agree with every single one of those. It's sickening, but what is one to do when the majority think it's all "ok"?

Mad, innit?

Time we stopped listening to these wackos in the CBI and Chambers of Commerce who are the ones pulling the strings in Westminster.

We are stupidly making our own individual lives and family's lives harder and more expensive by a failure to come together and take on issues like healthcare in the same way that we do for the defense of our nation - i.e. as a collective act of security.

Healthcare = A Collective Act of Security (We all get sick eventually and we don't need bankruptcy vs survival to affect our nation anymore, better health = more productive society, better mental health = better lives for everyone, less illegal drug use, less poverty - see below)

Eliminating Poverty = A Collective Act of Security (Less crime, better mental health and choice-making as poverty affects the brain, more shared tax responsibility and less money into programs for the poor...)

Education = A Collective Act of Security (means we get better jobs, less poverty, better economy, lead the world in innovation and technology and all manner of good things!)

This is just a little sketch.

It ain't communism, it's wisdom.

Corrupt government. You would think after the adventures back in 2008 we as a nation would learn to not vote the right back in control, but whattayaknoe!! We had the pirate-movement going strong and a lot of people who said they'd vote for them. But when things got real, those same people chickened out and chose save instead of change. We voted this new corrupt government back in October and I said then (and still say) they wont last a year. They've managed to be so rotten that former anarchists and punk rockers have become soft in their presence and bow to them, people who used to be on their f the system business. Modern reality feels like it did ten years earlier, back in 2007. People are on a high and have completely forgot about the crash. Oh and I didn't even mention the panama papers...we outraged (again) and got our thieving prime minister fired from his position as PM (but not from the parliament, where he only showed up every other day..because ..comedy) then after that, we voted in his brother in crime as PM who was also a bank robber who hid money offshore because that's obviously what rich psychopaths in power do.

Everyone, everywhere, regardless of the country should hate the fact that psychopaths are in control of their country and do not have the best interests of the common people in mind.

It doesn't matter the country, it is pretty much true for all.

They should hate that they can be jailed for non-violent crimes. They should hate the concentration of power. They should hate the divisiveness propagated upon them. They should hate busy body neighbors butting into their business.

If people would #ing grow up, mind their own business and demand accountability for those in power, we might progress as a species.

I don't hate...not in my nature but I do rather dislike:-
British Dentistry or lack of it - and price of it
The insane price of fags...if I want to kill myself...my choice! (plus it just creates a huge blackmarket)
Ludicrous socialism bordering on marxism
TV licence fee - don't have a tv but its still crap and needs abolishing
The ability of the UK to have every kind of weather all in one week - makes deciding what to wear a tad tricky
Starbucks Cafe Nero and McDonalds - don't mind Burger King so much

Overseas call centres (and other unsolicited cold calls) - "Hello my name is Nigel" - nope its not its Ahmed isn't it? "No really its Nigel" pronounced Ni-g-el hmmm
Club 18-30

I nearly hate everything about my country since Benno Ohnesorg was shot, OP Gladio played out and our Bananarepublic meddled with the NSU murder cover-up. It's state terror at this point with the latest events and I'm still watching the whole situation unfold. Yesterday they cancelled another concert in fears of an attack, which is somehow ought to be good by now.
Maybe one day I'll author a thread on that, or a friend will. We're working on that.

But to balance things out I've gotta say I really love my fellow Krauts of various kinds. Awesome place to live, I'd only leave it for the Netherlands in case that pot isn't legal within... say 5 years.

Yeah, hates a strong word.
You're spot on about a lot there.
Gave up fags for vaping, gave up TV cos its rubbish and we shouldn't have to get taxed for the garbage and propaganda on the BBC.

Strongly disapprove of Mrs Mays proposal to censor the internet.

And every single criminal at the Department for Work and Pensions should be spat on and treated like the scum that they are!!!

As for burger king, I don't eat take away food. I know someone who worked in the Environmental Health Department for a few years and there just isn't enough time in the world to tell you about the stories I've heard... Just stay away from kebab shops.

I love my country.

I hate the whiners, the unfulfilled and unfulfillable. I especially hate people who litter.

The American voter is their own worst enemy. Instead of standing together and demanding that our representatives start listening to our needs, we have party loyalists that feel they have to defend the party platform even when their party's proposed legislation will hurt the majority of Americans. If we don't hold our politicians and president accountable for their lies, their self-serving interests, and demand that money be taken out of politics, the U.S. will continue to head down a destructive path.

I really believe the party-system will be the downfall of America. The motto "United we stand, divided we fall" has never been as relevant as it is today. We see the divisiveness everyday being posted right here on ATS!
