even if I am working I will stop what I am doing for them, because in the end that is what they will remember!!!! Not the 2 million $ home and video games.

• "Baby momma and baby daddy" culture is widespread. Teen marriage out of wedlock is the norm, but no one is advocating marriage and family.
So you are one of those children considering you found my topic so irresistable you were complled to post in this childish thread to spout your opinion on my childish topic.

What amazes me MOST is how anyone even thinks about these types of topics anymore, and even worst, dedicates a new thread of it while America is taking a FULL SPEED nose-dive down the drain.
[color=deepskyblue]Who CARES about the worlds view of Americas OBESITY or personal choices right now when the country has at LEAST a million other crucial problems going on.
I thought only little kids had things like this occupying their minds at the present time. Guess I am wrong.edit on 17-11-2010 by pplrnuts because: [color=gold]COLORS!!!!

really? well point on the map and show me another country which isn't like that. never heard of a country which was self-deprecating and totally devoid of propaganda machine. you hate burgers? big deal! i hate hunger and never ending man-made deficits! all of you ungrateful mofos should have been born in USSR and i in the USA. life isnt fair! you hate pop culture? well i do too! it`s not a reason to hate your country- every country in the world has their own version of shyt culture. you think there are no snookies around the worldwide TV? then you must be living in a wonderland. US gets the blame because it has the biggest economy therefore has the capacity to outproduce every other country. for every bad there`s a good in US or even two or more.

Obamacare? That sounds horribly fascist.... well, I've labeled it, now someone else deal with it.

As a typical american, and on behalf of other typical americans, you are welcome to leave anytime. Instead of blaming americans for your failures, have you considered the fact that you may lack talent, intellegence and the work ethic necessary to be successful here? Sounds like you don't have the capability to compete, which is really you're problem.

At what point did I say that Russia or the former USSR was better than the U.S.?

And how do you do that exactly? For a few years now I've lived in an extremely international environment and I can't tell where someone is coming from just by looking at them. Sometimes I can tell by the accent, but it's all relative. There is no such thing as "typical American", just like there is no such thing as "typical German", or Spanish, or Brit.
Precisely because of that diversity you were talking about.
Everywhere in the world people have different political opinions, different tastes in clothes and music and food and literature and basically in every cultural aspect.
As for physical attributes, I've seen plenty of brunette Scandinavians and plenty of blonde Spanish and Italian people. All relative.
Unless all the Germans you see wear lederhosen, all Scandinavians look like Pippi Longstocking and all French carry baguettes under their arms, in which case, I apologise.
