And Another

"What do Americans know about morality? They don't want their presidents to have penises but they don't mind if their presidents covertly arrange to support the Nicaraguan rebel forces after Congress has restricted such aid; they don't want their presidents to deceive their wives but they don't mind if their presidents deceive Congress- lie to the people and violate the people's constitution!"

--John Irving

This country is like an angry thirteen year old. All the European countries mostly grew up, they may still be emo but it's pretty historically obvious how fucked up any place that's been colonized is. Look at Haiti for example, to the US has always been just a chess piece, and wonder why/how this wasn't a huge opportunity to knock down all the stupid walls with Cuba and actually focus on people not governments...

I like the teenager analogy. So much hypocrisy, so much ignorance. So much craziness.

Most of the time I just find myself thinking that Americans are dumbasses.

So sad
