The vast majority of people are also allowed to express their unhappiness, unlike so many other places with ugly, abusive governments. THAT's the difference. Try going into those government offices in Mehico and expressing your dissatisfaction with the way they are doing their jobs. Let us hear how that works out for you (if ever heard from again). I get really upset at America bashing. It's mostly JEALOUSY because with all it's faults it is still by far the best place to be.Then let's clear this up. Quote the question that I asked, that caused your answer.
I made an observation of inconsistent standards and you've given your rationale for being inconsistent. A bigoted one, IMO. You should stop by my church and stand up in front and make your observation about our citizens. You obviously have no idea what an average American is like. The vast majority of us are unhappy with our own government. I've also been in every corner of this planet and I'm more likely to find people fascinated by and appreciative of Americans than not. Not perfect, by any means.
Further, the Canadian's seem to admire their Mayor in Toronto. Should I judge all Canadians as crack smoking, drunken idiots? I haven't, as of yet.
Naw - There's still a FEW thin people left in my circle. Also, there were a few socialists who LEAPT ALL OVER becoming more like Europe. I mean the metric system.Got fatter?
Hated New Coke?
Refused to adopt the Metric System?
When we were in Mexico, AND when ever we go foreign, Or even some places in the US (like for Mardi Gras) we use the following method!I have heard they require you to carry your passport at all times, in a land of increasing armed robberies, where a passport is extremely valuable on the black market.
Think I'll give Mexico a miss!
