Jeff Daniels is Brilliant in that new show !!
and he expose the entire system how everythng is broken

** Warning: Contains swearing **



This clip is very touching and have very deep thoughs
i liked the end when he say :

FIRST STEP IN SOLVING ANY PROBLEM IS RECOGNISING THERE IS ONE


This is a clip from the first episode of the HBO drama "The Newsroom".
HBO

A great and true speech, a truth many Americans do not want to admit to, being patriotized from early childhood on. Not only a good start for the show, with a great performance from Jeff Daniels, but also something to reflect upon.


like a YT comment said


I think Jeff Daniels is the most underrated actor in history. Wow. And everything he just said is 100% true.


i dont have anything else to add

HBO really know how to make an entrance

How far are they willing to go to expose the US gov for what they really are ?
can the government censor this kind of show ?

Too many facts he threw out for me to care to check his numbers.
HOWEVER, the feeling he may be right is.

It's awesome if you're a international mega corporation.

Makes you question the immigration policy that's been in place for about 236 years.

Isn't Jeff Daniels the descendant of of European immigrants?

Thanks for the help...I guess poor huddled masses aren't as much help as everyone thought.

As if such an obvious thing needs saying. Tbh the concept of "greatest"countries shouldn't exist in the first place; for many reasons --- one being that it breeds an elitist attitude of citizens & causes disconnection between the species.

Generally speaking it's just nonsense; religious and cultural divisions are only enhanced by it as well.

I never agree with you but this is the third thing tonight in three different threads that I have to agree with. (I didnt comment on the others but I will) First I want to say thanks for the video. It hits the proverbial nail right on the head. America used to be the greatest country on the Earth, but it isn't any longer. I grew up in the America that he describes in the last half of the video.

America will never be what it once was until the sheeple all wake up and say enough is enough and take the country back from those who have destroyed it.

I will give you the first star and flag Ive ever given you for this!

I appreciate your honesty

When i saw the scene with Jeff Daniel for the first time swearing to make his point
in front of a big crowd ... it reminded me a scene from V in some way

Good post and good vid.


I think the U.S. needs more self-criticism / someone who dares to publicly denounce uncomfortable truths.

Even when criticism is motivated by genuine concern, it seems Americans are somewhat allergic to it when it comes from abroad.

I once posted in a thread here on ATS that Germany beats the U.S. in pretty much all categories, except for military spendings and imprisonment per capita... people either ignored it or simply didn't believe me - or I was immediately labeled anti-american.

Good on you to post this Ben81.

Uh,OK. if the US of A isn't the greatest country in the world, who takes the slot? What country is the greatest in the world?

As far down Mr. Crappers bowl we've gone, there's no where I want to move to. Canada? Nope. too freaking cold and that country will fall apart within weeks of the US. Nowhere in Europe, that's for sure.

Australia? Maybe, but too many snakes and they're about to be overrun by Asians. New zealand? Bah.

Scratch Africa, the Mid-East? Yah right. Hmm. The south pole? Nope, no steaks... England? Nope praying on Sunday beats five times a day...

Iceland? Hmm. There's a possiblity. Costa Rica/Central America? Nope too many retired spooks. Siberia? Nope Canada without the beer. Some small, isolated Island that hasn't been nuked, immigrated to? Already bought up by the dudes who messed it all up..

Iceland is too small. It would be overpopulated in a year.

Nope. I'm hunkering down. Survivalist mode. Plenty of food, away from the cities and who knows, maybe it will get better some day.

BAM! That was the best video ever. I'm sure many people who were watching that when it aired were completely awestruck... he really dished it out to them. My favorite part was when he said this:

We lead the world in only 3 categories:

* number of incarcerated citizens per capita
* number of adults who believe angels are real
* defense spending (more than the next 26 counties combined)


And I wrote a thread a few weeks ago which is extremely relevant to this discussion:
Land Of The Free No Longer

Any country that is the greatest, is better off living in hiding and not letting people believe they are. As you said, they'd be overpopulated within a year. And a country, that never knew hard crime, would suddenly be overpopulated with hard criminals.

Find Eden, and you will soon turn it into hell itself.
