Patriotic Circumcision

Gotta love the American education system...

Well, since John seems to agree that some constructive criticism is O.K. and because as a citizen born and raised in the good old U.S.A, I think I can speak with some authority on the social degradation that is occurring here. It is also time I set the record straight for those who wonder about why someone would want to leave the U.S. to go to China.

Let me start off by saying I do not hate my country. I love my country and it will always be home in my heart, but there are some serious problems here in the U.S. that need to be dealt with and I think they are being avoided because we as a people have grown so arrogant that we do not see our own flaws.

The government seems happy to spend money on fighting another Vietnam war while our economy wobbles, still on the brink of collapse. The bailout of big business was the equivalent of putting a band aid on a broken leg. So, we wait for this wonderful recovery that is slowly coming, but at the same time we watch as the government argues over who is going to clean up what could become the worst environmental disaster in known history.

The best part is it doesn't matter if the idea is a great one, the other party will oppose it on shear principle, but of course it is the normal people who suffer in this mess, not the rich or the politicians. It really makes me think that the opposite of progress is congress.

If you are a democrat, you hate anything republican. If you are a republican you hate anything democrat. This nation is divided and this division is preventing any positive results from occurring. We have had the best opportunity to fix the mess that the previous administration has caused but we still can't put politics behind us and just do what is right and just.

Ok, enough with the government lets get to the people. A majority of citizens in my country have a sense of entitlement that is absolutely nauseating. We have gotten our way so much that now we act like spoiled children when things are not going our way. We'd rather cry and blame others for our own failure. We think that China appreciating their currency will help our economy, but in truth it is our own excesses and poor economic judgment that has put us in the situation we are in here in America.

As a culture we have resorted to disasterbation (yes this is a made up word, but it describes American entertainment so well.) as entertainment, and that disturbs me more than anything. America as a society gets off on the suffering of others. It's obvious if you just see the shows that are becoming popular now from the disaster shows that put the fear of God into us or even the viral videos online that show people getting seriously hurt while people laugh at them and if the UFC has anything to say about it we will be resorting to gladiatorial combat to the death soon.

I agree with John on the fact that nearly all of the countries represented at the G20 conference could use some spring cleaning. The U.S. should lead the way in the reform of its own system. If any American hasn't noticed it yet, they will soon, the system is failing. I don't like to be such a gloom and doom type person, but it's about time this cowboy gets the hell out of Dodge.

Is there hope? Sure there is, there could be a person that will read this article and decide to make the difference here in the U.S. Even myself someday if I ever return home. I keep hope alive everyday that there will be someone to step up and truly lead America back to her former greatness, back to the same greatness that has drawn people from all over the world to our shores.

So, this is my criticism of the U.S. I realize it is a bit harsh, but it is what I see through my own eyes. Perhaps it isn't as bad as I perceive, or it could be much worse, I'll leave that up to the reader. The thing I'm truly excited about, is getting the chance to see the U.S from an outsiders perspective. I believe that it will be a truly enlightening experience.

Hi Neil,
I agree with all you speak. As one left here in the USA and subject to the turmoil here I can say that this country is headed for a rude awakening soon.
Of course...the Chinese people have it no better! Come on...Marxism in its truest sense makes everyone equal. Look many displaced people do you see for the sake of industrialization? No, I don't condemn China...nor do I condemn the USA. Each has their own problems and they handle them as best they can. I'm sure you've heard of the, "TEAPOT" party? Are they good? Wish I could say for sure! They are trying to reform the government here...back to what it should be...of the people, by the people and for the people. Will it work? Who knows? How about all of the people all over the world just getting along

ahhh yes everyone getting along would be a great idea. I think we all need to send a few of the normal guys out to each country and all have a beer together and just enjoy a good conversation. Unfortunately it's just a dream at this point but maybe someday we will all get along.
