The U.S. is full of hypocrisy and ego! They preach so  much about working together, communicating effectively etc. but don't practise it!!

 

Every ready to go to war and show off their military might and not doing it through knowledge.

 

This a wake-up for the U.S. Time to be the change and stop changing others.

 

Obama don't go to your Mama when the **** hits the fan!!!

 

"And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!"

 

Land of the free?Home of the brave?

 

I think the American people have become "slaves" to their progress and that has made them less brave!

 

Be the bea****f light that you were meant to be...the statue of liberty is the symbol of that!!!

US govt system is worst after all, this gotta be the best bulll**** system ever, and while the ordinary folks suffer, their congressmen all live in the lap of luxury.

 

What Americans should do is have a real revolution and shoot dead all their congressmen for their lack of responsibility to their own people.

 

what ever happened to the govt by the people, for the people and of the people ?

 

alll bull**** kan ?
