    Ok so I'm totally not American.

    I'm English. But I was hoping to ask for some American advice! I'm sending my friend an English food package with candy and chocolates and tea in - was wondering what kinds of English candy you would want to try that you can't really get in the USA? Would be a bit pointless to...

    America is supposed to be the richest country

    yet Vietnamese, Japanese, Mexican, and people from other countries move over here and live like kings while some of us who are FROM America are struggling to look for a job or living off of paycheck to paycheck I don't understand this and it ****** me off.

    I was born in the continent named America,

    therefore I should be able to identify myself as American, I think. It's not that I have anything against the US, whatever injustices the country might have been involved in in the past are IN THE PAST, and I think it's stupid when people hate on the US and want to somehow make...

    for you. Why don't you reach on in my front pocket and see what it is? There, grab onto it - it's just for you. Give it a little squeeze and say, "How do you do?" There's something in my front pocket! There's something in my front pocket! South Park
