I dislike America

I really do. Earlier I was talking to one of my friends online from The Netherlands and we were discussing each of our country's laws and restrictions. America is suppose to be "the land of the free", but I just don't see it. Everything is fucking censored on television and radio, legal drinking age is 21 (they are trying to move it up), cannabis can get you years in prison, uniforms are becoming mandatory at public schools throughout the nation, gays are treated like absolute shit here, just so much shit.

Actually the occurrence that triggered this was the US's edition of Amy Winehouse's Back to Black. They fucking removed "Addicted" because it was a motown-inspired song about cannabis. Are you kidding me? I have to order an import now because that was one of my favorites on the album.

Bullshit.

Re: I dislike America

Ok, then if you are of age and have the available means, move to another country

There are some major problems in the U.S, but you will encounter problems anywhere you go. The prudish nature of the United States does annoy me but freedom of speech is censored everywhere, just for different reasons. For example, where else could Scientologists be able to spout their lunacy
Seriously though, I highly doubt the U.S. government had anything to do with removing the song, Winehouse's people just probably thought the song would not play as well over here with all of the religious fanatics so they did not want to offend people.

Re: I dislike America

- If the US change their drinking age legally at 18, then i guess it could be worse.
- Putting big number of years show the americans should realise that they shouldn't taking cannabis. It's too dangerous.

Re: I dislike America

About music : America has always banned EuroDance from their charts in the 90ies while EuroDance was very popular. Enough said.

I had to read that second sentence a few times to completely grasp its meaning. Taking cannabis does not have to be dangerous, although there can be health implications. Same could be said about alcohol. If you show restraint in use it does not have to be dangerous.

Re: I dislike America

Look folks living in the States is not perfect. Hell, I can name at least 200 problems I have about living here. But when it you down to it, there is no other place I'd rather be except for maybe a secluded beach in Fiji.

Re: I dislike America

um you can only get years in prison for cannabis if you are some drug lord. posession of a small amount wont get you anything more than probation. im not sure how old you are (reading your post, id say youre pretty young..), but if you are of age and dislike america, there is a simple solution. leave. if freedom to you means trivial things like no drinking age, legalizing drugs, and not having to wear a uniform, you really need to go back and come up with a better, more mature argument.
