This article had to have been written by an ultra left winger. Ill agree on some points, but most, well, most are hardly worth mentioning.
Guns are not a problem. If only 35,000 people a year are dying from guns, then thats tiny compared to the old 60,000 number. In a country the size of
the us, that number is so small its hardly worth consideration.
Niether is our suppsoed stinginess. We give alot more than 8 billion a year in foreign aid, Ill tell ya that, and if it were in my power, Id cut it
all off, especially to Israel who gets 10 billion a year, thus, dusting the idea we only give 8. We should not be supporting the world or getting
involved in any of thier messes, we should not be expnading or manipulating govornments. And we should not be sending money to countries with #head
leaders who will blow it all on something less than noble anyway.
Our school system is a joke, and needs to be revamped badly. Ill agree on that point. Its pathetic. No wonder so many americans tend to be dense and
dont know how to find thier country on a map. Sad.
Healthcare? Its a tough one. I have no medical insurance, yet, a national health care system is disturbing. thats something socialist Europe is more
than welcome to have, but in a country this size, it would be silly. besides, thats what states are for. california has a public health system, so do
some other states. It is unconsitituional, just like the IRS and FBI. I would much rather die from my illnesses than live under such a system.
The death penalty is actually a great idea, one I do not opposed. (Ithink it hysterical that they mentioend we would never get to enter the European
Union, as if this is a big fear on anyones mind here, lol). Nothing uncivilized about the death penalty. Its not a detrent, but a means to rid the
genepool of worthless dangerous riffraff. it is worthy to note that the death penalty notion that states who have it have a higher crime rate, because
those states that have it are usually heavily populated. More people, more international mixing, more crime. Note that in iran and China, theres
hardly a murder rate, and they have the death penalty as well. It is culture, the bottom line. We have a violent culture. That, and well, we dont
enforce it enough.
Divorce is a massive problem in the US, yet the other day i was looking up world wide divorce rates, and have discovered that Scandinavia and the
former Soviet republics have a WAY higher divorce rate than we do. Cuba does too. So, we hardly lead the world in divorce, its just with our
hysterical media, dovirces, high prfile ones, get #loads of coverage.
Obeisity is a problem, one that irks me to no end. I have never been fat, am not fat, and refuse to get fat. I see some pigs downing three burgers in
a setting. I see people turning down lower calorie food, or not serving it at all. Theres nothign glorious about fat. Its disgusting to look at, and
is a bigger problem in this country than smoking. yet only smokers get nagged and riddiculed.
Alcohol? Thats a problem? i do believe the Russians consume more. Last tiem I checked, before the collpase of the soviet union, Russians consumed 9
liters of vodka for every man woman and child, per year. of course, alcoholism, well, ive seen plenty of boozers. A problem, yeah. But it always has
been, just like balding and hemroids. No news there, and prohibition sure as hell didnt stop us from drinking.
Serial killers? They failed to mention that Richard Ramierez and Charle Ng, both serial killers, both not white. But yeah, we got alot of serial
killers. And serial rapists too. But, that comes from having a huge massive country that attracts all types. You have so many different viewpoints and
unbringings, systems and such, youre always gonna have, well, some wierd ones. Born and raised in Cali, serial kilelr capitol of the US. Not too bad
tho. Makes interesting reading! lol
No public transit> Thats a problem, We should have one, but dont. Still, some places dont need it. Cali culd sure use one. Though it would hardly
decrease traffic. Look at europe. public transit out the gazoo, and they still have packed roads.
Pollution? Welcome to the 21st century. Thats always a problem. No escaping it unless we go back to caves. But we could rediuce it considerably, save
money, and become more self sifficient. yeah, that is a problem, But I have seen the pollution in Europe. I could never imagine any river being a pure
flow of flesh eating toxins until I saw the Rhein. And I went on vacation to blackpool, england. First time Ive ever seen brown water. Guess the
pacific coast is just lucky.
Vacations? yeah, Ill agree. Oh, we get months of vacation: its called unemployment. And more often than not, most employters I have worked for dont
even have vacation. the few that do, you get one week a year, and have to claw and scream to get it, and are made to feel guilty for taking it. Our
companies have serious problems. it does lower the quality of life here, and induces stress and depression. of course, if given 4 weeks of vacation a
year, we more than likely would not go overseas, save mexico and canada, which arent overseas. Most Americans would travel the country and see what
they could see. Generally, most Americans have little interest in world travel, as, not only is it hideously expensive for us, but, well, when they
see images on the news of people saying die americans, burning flags, down with USA, it generally stimies any jetset tendancies. (oh, look at that man
holding the sign saying death to Americans, burning the flag, oh, lets go there, get the kids)
The real problems with the US are: too much TV, Zionist occupation, too many US companies and products abroad, too many jobs going overseas, too
little education, too little awareness of whats going on in thier own borders, people not taking care of themselves, national debt, and traitors
running the gov. Thats what i think thats wrong. most other problems can stem from that.
