I guess you could say I'm somewhat pampered by living here, but I personally say it is a bit over-rated. Freedom's great, but not enough people are responsible with the freedom they have.

P.S.

I've lived in America all my life, so I guess I've got some things to say:

America has a sharp distinction between social classes; Upper class, middle class, and lower class. There are still many homeless people in the country. Some of the important political figures in the government don't really belong where they are: Arnold Shwartz in California. There are others which deserve their job, however, like Colin Powell. In America, if you have plenty money, you can do just about anything. Some things, like minimum wage, help make the country a bit fair. However, minimum wage is still pretty low. People hire illegal immigrants to work around their house to try to save some money. If they don't hire them, then the job probably wouldn't get done by anyone else. But it's also unfair that these illegal immigrants often get paid very low.
Statistics prove that a woman with an equal education of a man will generally get paid less than the man, which is unfair. There is still discimination in the country, but not as much in suburban areas. That's just a little bit to say, I don't want to overflow this thread [img]smile.gif[/img] .

Maybe your use of the word "hate" as an invitation was not meant to mean what it implies, as we cannot allow "hate" posts about any country on here, in accordance to this TOS rule:

Be Polite: No targeting of another user by harassing or giving unwarranted attention to or attacking ones race, gender, ethnicity or country. Also, respect each person's views and questions--this includes attacks on NEW users.


I think everybody already knows this, but since you are new, I wanted to make sure that you understood what limits people have in regards to the rules set down by the Administrator. Thanks.

america...well...most of the people in it dont want to take personal responsibility - anything that ever happens is not their fault and so they refuse to accept the consequences. ie you dont teach your kids morals, they act immorally, and you blame some random thing such as tv, video games or whatnot as the reason why theyre like that.

i wish i was born in japan -p

[/QUOTE]yes... it can be used to describe many countries, but I'm using it to describe the USA... so whats your point? Should I have given him my opinion on every country in the world?

Also you should read the first post again...

...out what do you think about America (U.S.A.).
I think he was asking about the U.S.A and the last time I checked thats was the United States of America and it's not like that is South America... or Canada...
