1. Most Americans know much more about Kim Kardashian than they do about the Federal Reserve.

This is due to your obsession with celebrity. Since you kicked out the Brits, you've desperately wanted something to replace the Royals and the President is a political role so will offend around half the population.

2. The way that the TSA abuses travelers is a national embarrassment.  One TSA agent recently sifted her finger through the ashes of someone's dead grandfather and then spilled his ashes all over the airport floor.

This is due to the fact that you see QUANTITY as being more important than QUALITY.
Pay your security people a proper wage and you'll get better officers.

3. Many young people in America are willing to wait in line to pay a 400% markup on new Kanye West sneakers, but most of those same young people cannot even tell you how many members of Congress there are.

This is due to your obsession with celebrity.

4. Many Americans seem to be far more interested in American Idol and Dancing With The Stars than they are in dealing with the very serious economic, political and moral problems facing this nation.

This is due to your obsession with celebrity.

5. A recent survey found that 61 percent of all Americans believe that "paying your fair share of taxes" is being patriotic.

Paying taxes is being socially responsible, not "communist".

6. We currently have the worst president in U.S. history, and there is a chance that we may have to endure another 4 years of his insanity.

Oh Bullsh!t. Obama is the best you've had for a decade. He's more worldly than any of the republican gooses you've had and wants to improve the lot of Americans.

7. We have a Supreme Court that appears to have very little respect for the U.S. Constitution.


And that's understandable, it was a load of rubbish which has had to be "amended" numerous times.

8. The financial center of our country, Wall Street, is full of psychopaths.


Wall street is not alone.

9. America has the highest incarceration rate and the largest total prison population in the entire world by a very wide margin.

And this is because you don't have a proper social welfare and medical system which avolids absolute poverty driving people into crime.

10. The highways of America are rapidly being turned into a high tech prison grid.

But you don't want to pay taxes which are what builds the freakin' freeways !


21. There are more school shootings in America than anywhere else in the world.

Yeah, because you keep voting in dickheads which won't challenge the "right to bear arms" nonsense.

22. Authorities are warning that ATM thefts are on the rise again.


And this is because you don't have a proper social welfare and medical system which avolids absolute poverty driving people into crime.

23. Incredibly, 85 percent of the stuff sold at the biggest retailer in the United States is made outside of the country.

Well the USA drove the idea of "free trade" and forced it upon others. Looks like a bit of blowback now !

25. The United States has the most lawyers per capita in the entire world.

Yes, we know.

26. Approximately 50 million babies have been slaughtered in hospitals and abortion clinics in America since Roe v. Wade was decided in 1973.

Oh dear, you're one of "them".

28. According to one survey, 50 percent of Americans between the ages of 18 and 24 cannot find the state of New York on a blank map.


That's terrible, but a reminder that you're all obsessed with yourselves. Take a look at the rest of the world, for a change, it's a hell of a lot more interesting.


33. The U.S. healthcare system is a complete and total mess, and now Obamacare is going to make things much, much worse.


It may surprise some ignorant tossers like yourself that Obama care appears to be a modest move in the direction which a number of quite civilised non-communist countries have gone in, for some years.
In Australia, for example, we have a mix of public and private health care with insurance premiums far below what US companies charge and health care as good as, if not better, than in the USA.
We also have a system where people won't lose the house if they get sick and are not insured.
Dipsticks like yourself just don't understand the system, it's the "vested interests" in America who stand to lose if "Obamacare" gets up.

34. Our food is rapidly being transformed into absolute garbage.  As I wrote about the other day, at this point more than 70 percent of all processed foods sold in the U.S. contain at least one ingredient that has been genetically modified.


It's been crap food for some time. Quantity does not equal quality.

46. Many Republicans still believe that George W. Bush was a "conservative" and that he was a "good president".


I might agree here, GWB was a goose in a long line of Republican party waterfowl. I mean, Ronald Reagan, how COULD you ?

47. The Obama administration is considering plans to unilaterally slash the size of the U.S. nuclear arsenal by up to 80 percent.

Good move.

61. Nobody in the world gets more plastic surgery done than Americans do.


It's all about "facade", style over substance, eh ?

Agreed on Obama and Obamacare.

I will be voting for him again AND I'm a strong supporter of Obamacare.  

Agreed on all points.

This is the republic BS they have been pushing for awhile.

You've got people calling him hitler and all kinds of crazy talk.

The rhetoric has gotten worse.

Personally, I think its racism at the core of it.  They don't want to admit they are racist so they make up these wild claims and accusations that make it seem political instead of racist.

I think Obama's a good man, what he would like to do and what he CAN do in a place like America are worlds apart.

The last President who tried to get radical change was assassinated
