Wow, some of the most ridiculous comments ever (even beating out You Knows best)...
Folks, America spends billlions each year giving to poor countries. Sometimes,
when we're really nice, we'll even send soldiers to shit-holes like Somalia where they can get shot at for
distributing rice to hungry somalis.
I talked to a Vietnam refugee once. She said the most amazing thing about America was the Salvation Army.
She couldn't believe an organization existed solely to distribute food/clothing/housing and job opportunities.
Does the Salvation Army exist in Vietnam? Think again
We use a lot of resources. We pollute the environment. These are things we need to work on.
But we're not solely responsible for the destruction of the world. We invented democracy folks,
and its no fault of ours that democracy just happens to afford the most potential for anyone of any nationality.
Dictators and communists don't do much for the people they control. If they want to fuck up their economys,
well then that's THEIR FAULT and NOT OURS. You don't want us to be imperialist right? So stop asking us to be.
Oh, and by the way, has anyone heard of the toxic gas cloud created by in-effecient rice cookers hovering over
asian that threatens to kill millions? WHOSE RESPONSIBLE FOR THAT? THE WESTERN WORLD?
You guys are smarter than this, c'mon
