What gets me with Americans is their misdirected sense of "outrage".
People are "outraged" that Secret Service agents are partying with prostitutes in a country where prostitution is LEGAL, are "outraged" that their cable companies make a mistake and broadcast the wrong program that wasn't supposed to be on, are "outraged" that their kid got a failing grade after not putting in any effort on their homework, "outraged" that their cell phone company had the audacity to charge them for services that they actually used.
However, people are NOT outraged at the constant bribery of their politicians on Capitol Hill (lobbying), or outraged that kids take guns to school and shoot down their classmates, or outraged at child abuse scandals of the Catholic Church, or many other more serious concerns.
People need to sort out their priorities.
