    Scared to Leave, Scared to Stay...

    In all seriousness, my city is definitely on "the terrorists" short list. Not that I subscribe to the whole "the terrorists" idea, as if there was some monolithic organization that is out for our blood. More likely, there's just a bunch of different nut jobs out there (some with...

    I Hate To Say It

     but, america just isn't my place. I know everyone says "Well there is no better place than America." Well for some people that's true but honestly america just isn't my place. I hate it where people have to divide themselves into two political groups that can't compromise...

    Not Quite

    I wouldn't say that I'm tired of America...more like I'm disappointed in America and ashamed of what it is becoming.

    The American Workplace In Praise Of Spreading Germs To All!

    It's really a sad state of affairs here in the US when someone is praised for coming into work when sick, spreading their germs to their co-workers, clients, customers!   I think greed is behind this part of American culture and that alone makes me sick.  My feeling is no...

    Love For a Country, Hate For a System...

    It's not the country nor the country's people that I hate. It's the government, the system, the politicans, our leaders. The decision makers. They are what make this country flourish or fail. I don't hate America, I hate how it's thrown around and used like a snot rag. I take...

    I Am Sick Of American Ignorance

    So today, I had to start a research paper on a subject from a list I was given. The one that I had selected was the death penalty, against it of course. Well, I looked into it, and in California alone the death penalty costs a staggering $137 MILLION a year! Texas spends $2.3...

    Blacks founded America

    and the white men stole it. The Statue of "Liberty" was suppose to be a black woman breaking free from her shackles.. But now it's a white woman holding a flame with little to no meaning. So yes, that and a lot more is why I dislike America

    How can we as a nation still consider ourselves one of the top nations in the world when we're falling apart from the inside? Why do we think it's ok to start an unnecessary war trying to "help" other countries be more like us? Looking at our current state, i don't think that's...
