Re: Britain going down the toilet
Is your name Michelle Obama?
No optimism in the future?
Individualism is bad?
Uh, it's called personal responsiblity.
The big brother govt. is not your mommy and daddy.
You, yes, you should try to take care of yourself, your family, your neighbors, community first and foremost
above the govt.
Our worst centers of poverty in the West are nothing compared to what real poverty is around the world.
We're generally very spoiled brats, with the attention span of a 1 year old.
I agree on our education system...but, who has set most of the rules in the USA for education for the past
several decades - the liberal left, the teacher union, and progressives.....it's been more of an effort to
build self esteem and less to teach history, reading, writing, science, computers, etc. Bush tried to get
standard testing imposed, you would have thought he was trying to outlaw apple pie and Mother's Day.
If you inhaled the same stuff Al Gore and Michelle Obama did, yeah, you're near suicidal.
If you stopped inhaling the funny green leaf stuff...you can realize we have a better life
expectancy than our parents, we have easier, better jobs to get and look forward to, access to
better education at any level, cleaner air and water than in the 1960's, cleaner cars to buy,
access to organic food, every high tech tool you could want at cheaper prices day by day........
and more freedom of speech and religion and lifestyle than ever before.
We also have a real problem with a part of the world that would prefer to live like Osama Bin Laden
in a cave with a Koran, slicing off heads of those who disagree w/them....but, no bother really.
It's all made up I'm told.
According to her, we're all luck not to be living in a cave, being chased by The Man....
oh my, how did she make it in life with her Ivy League education, 6 figure job, healthy
kids, good husband, multi-million dollar income, great home, power jobs, she somehow
struggled to achieve this, and yet, you, you losers, you never will....The Man is out to
Do more individually to help those around you, and yourself.
Don't whine. Just do something.
