I was just sitting here watching t.v., eating some doughnuts and drinking a coke.

And I thought of how great it is to live in a country where I am free to do this.

I mean I really have no worries that anything bad is going to happen to me.

I have food when I want it. lots of entertainment to choose from. I can walk out my door and be free to go wherever I want.

Though the united states is not the only free country in this world there are many that are not free at all.

I am glad I was born here during this time in history.

We really have it good in the USA and I don't think enough of us appreciate it.

I agree.

The real trick will be keeping it that way.

I just did a little research to figure out the probability of my being born in the US a half century ago.
Data source
% of global population by country 1965
  • China
    21.39%

  • India
    14.77%

  • US
    5.78%

  • Russia
    3.78%

  • Indonesia
    3.31%

  • Japan
    2.50%

  • Other
    48.48%


Less than a 6% chance of being born in the United States in 1965. Compared with the other top 5 countries on the list, I feel blessed.

It's kind of humbling when you think about it...

I dunno, eating donuts, drinking coke and watching TV seems, to me, to be suicide by satiation, not the dream of a 'free nation' where you are not free to go outside and go anywhere (unless you mean to Walmart for more coke and donuts) and where borders prevent you travelling outside of your pen.

Papers please. OK they seem in order. You are 'free' to go.

Assuming it's what I do all the time.

No one is preventing me from traveling anywhere in the world. Except NK. Maybe a few other places I am not even aware of.

why should you visit any place? if it is a good country you are in, they should come to see yours.

This may come as a surprise to you but some people enjoy traveling and experience different cultures,their foods and their peoples. In fact they call travel the spice of life...

But you did say it is what makes America great.

No, but you are checked and cross checked. Travel to Canada. See if you can just walk in.

Jeez...
