I was thinking what I was watching.
Then I noticed...
It was a surveillance camera...
Stomping on the "U" of the USA...
As if it were stomping our "United" freedom...
It's watching us...
When we don't susp- hey look, a penny.

So are we going back to becoming the America that was when the British ruled excepted without the British ruling us?

There probably isn't going to be another tea party but I can't wait to see what happens next.

History repeats itself and gets a little more ridiculous the passing of the years.

How can my own country; which has the balls to call itself the best country in the world by the way, make so many wrong decisions so many times in a row?

I mean really.

I think everyone has seen it, but for anyone that hasn't.

Oh man, I don't even watch this show, but god damn this scene gives me goosebumps every time I see it.

I wonder what went wrong? I would understand if it was just the higherups that were affected by this plague of stupidity and inability to change, but even our peers reek of this nonsensical garbage. Why?

Everyone wants to feel right, when they don't, they listen to closest person without looking for the next opinion.

When stupid people do stupid things, smarter people mock them. The stupid believes that it's not mockery, but acceptance.

Uninformed people that follow ideals, without second thoughts, grow in abundance.

That and the fact some people choose a belief because it has beliefs that bring more pro than con, instead of going out their own way to find the 3rd, 4th, 5th options.

All this and we can't forget the people, that hate change because they don't understand it, nor wish to understand it. For a long time my family taught me how television and the internet would rot my mind. Yet, a few years ago, I started to go on all the time. I know about what they're talking about 3 months before they hear about it. They still don't care, and they still believe it's rotting my mind. If it is, I'm going down in style.

Damn that video was awesome.

I gotta ask, do you think the U.S.A will ever go back to the way it was?

Or is it too far gone?

Are we better off the way we are? I mean we have made some progress in some fields though we screwed up in some others...

I'm probably just being paranoid but I fear for my country.

True Order, I can be a cynical bastard when I want to be. And I can be very optimistic, it kind of depends on the subject.

When you compare our country to the other ones, ours is a child by comparison. I don't view myself as an idiot, but I don't claim to be the smartest guy around. If people think that there are problems then those same people should try to do something about it. If you think things are going down hill and circling the drain then fight tooth and nail to claw your way out of it.

So, is our country too far gone. I personally don't think so. But nothing will change if no one does anything about it. I don't know shit about politics, but the most basic of basic stuff. I don't know the answer to the big questions that might save the day, but I know that their are people out there who are smart enough or have the ability to become smart enough to come up with it.

We can claw our way out of any hole we dig ourselves in, but we need to want to. We've become a generation of critics and arm chair bloggers and while critics serve their purpose they won't fix anything on their own. What it take are people of action. People who look at whatever mess is before them and find a way to clean it up.

The human spirit can be an impressive thing. If we fight for change, help each other and remind the haters that they can yell as loud as the want to but they'll never be right. Human beings are tenacious creatures, we can accomplish a lot especially when we work together. Personally I think the first step is actually caring about your fellow man.

Another artist I like once said that a human being only care about two things: Their selves and things that remind them of their selves. I want to disagree with this, despite the evidence otherwise.

I don't think we're too far gone, as long as we have the will to march forward even if someone tell us its pointless. Believing isn't enough, we need our brains, our common sense, we need to work together. We need people with a few good ideas, people to want to make a change for the better. We can only be great if we put in the work.

We just need to actually give a shit. And I think we can still do that.

Or maybe I'm just being too optimistic and I don't know what the hell I'm talking about.

We need to educate people.
The pic's just a joke, but seriously. We need people to be informed if they're going to be given the right to do anything.

when all the people you all love as your parents die, hope that most of the people who believe more than half of what their parents believed die with them soon, and don't be one of those people.

I did laugh my ass off though.

Logic. We don't agree with your racism, so we must now fall into the stereotypes we believe you all see.

Not as dramatic, but earlier today I tried to convince one of my co-workers that not all Asians are smart(we were joking ofc). Halfway through the discussion, my register malfunctioned and I instinctively did all the math in my head for the next 10 minutes. Remembering prices/tax/change, all the good stuff. When someone finally came to fix the register, and give me a new drawer. According to the manager keeping track of my orders, I was off by 20 cents or so. I lost that argument, for I bolstered the stereotype to the point where I seemed inhumane.

This is why I hate people. People are stupid.

A person though can be intelligent.
