I call B$ - Just calling it how it is.
Perhaps you'd like me to candy-coat a turd & tell you it's good for your health, like your goverment does, and most governments for that matter.
When you can afford it ...
I'm glad America finally learned.
So they can have something to do, while they save up for a rocket program ... while china has an operating rocket program.
No. I don't hate americans. I hate the fact that the country seems to be run by greedy SOB's that are completely absorbed by finance, with no forethought to their actions.
And I dish them too - totally equal rights ... if it appears I'm anti-american, it's because US news dominates over every other countries news.
I understand that the individual companies pay the costs associated with the over-hyped popularity contest that you call elections. In essence, independent, and moral, politicians are priced out of the government because they can't afford a fancy advertising campaign & $150K suits & dresses
So you end up with politicians that are not so much bought, but idiots that are already pro-business with ideals aligned to the companies they are representing, companies that already have so much clout, they don't need the governments protection anyway. And the the few politicians that actually gave a damn about the populace at large are unable to gain any traction in American politics.
I'd suggest that Americans fully deserve the government they've got, but I wouldn't wish that on my worst enemy - and that would imply that I hate Americans, which I don't. It's totally pity - and the worst is that americans defend the system, warts & all, to the end. Warts can be cured without changing everything.
Billions? That's aiming a little too low - They stole Zillions from the rest of the world by bundling bad debts and selling it to the rest of the world ... and their economy is still f@#$ked.
I say to America - Get your house in order.
