You know, there is one thing the US has that almost no other country has in this planet and that, my friend, is your freedom of speech.
Other countries have SOME freedom of speech, but it doesn't go as far as it goes in the US.
Here in Brazil the problem is that brazilians can't take a joke for what it is. A joke. Recently, in a live comedy show, one of the hosts was
comenting about one of our singers who is pregnant, but still looks very hot. The other jumped in and said "I would do her and her baby."
Dude, you can't imagine how big this is right now. It's like front page news. It was a live comedy show on TV. Come on! Give me a break! And it
wasnt that bad. Now they suspended him from the show, he had several appearances in other shows cancelled, his own partners from the show criticised
him harshly, the singer and her family demanded an appology and that he should be punished, a bunch of brazilians are commenting saying he was out of
line and even sponsors threatened to pull their advertisings from the show. This is absurd. It was just a joke.
I just used that example because I doubt the same thing would happen in US. Again, you have something almost no other country in this planet has and
they are trying to take it away from you. Dont let them!
