I'm just like you...
I look out for others,
I look out for my own.
Ideally I would like to live beyond the dictims and politics of a state,
But even still... I have always loved my country, even if it hates me.
I believe that everyone deserves a chance, and the benefit of the doubt.
But I hold no illusions that an overwhelming benefit for the many wouldn't come to the detriment of a few in however a way...
And for whomever belongs to this oppressed latter,
it may be surprising to know that they may not always be the ones we'd expect to bear having to deal with it.
I am an American...
But it is my personal belief that my potential in life should never have to be constrained by the eb and flow of an ever-changing standard here,
And thus I believe it wrong when others would say that I must be remain here to be subjected to the numbing mediocrity expected of the rest...
When indeed I may attain that maximal potential whilst seeking better pastures elsewhere.
Even still... I will always believe in this very American credo;
And the pursuit of happiness.
I feel so strangely patriotic now after writing all of that [link] lol
So how did you proud citizen used this blessings?
Lets see statistics:
1. Biggest polluters: China emits about 6,018 million tons of greenhouse gases per year. 2: The United States is a close second with 5,903 tons.
List of countries by number of military/soldiers : 1.China: 2,285,000 2. United States of America: 1,429,995
Now lets see, China Population:1. 1,344,130,000 2. USA Populatin: 316,577,000
So can you see the difference?
Lol thank you Alex... I know that the comment was in dark jest,
but I just wasn't in a mood to respond to it.
Same over here with the PM, we voted in a guy we spent years complaining about, and now the guy I wanted to be PM is dead
I think that people will always complain down here...
It's the nature of our entitlement complex. t___t
I'm tired of complaining... but I'm also tired of the prospect of having my fate dictated by others who cannot learn from history's past mistakes.
I'll patronize many a country who would allow me the dignity of a chance at living for the sake of itself... and allow me the peace of retaining a shread of my humanity.
But eghghh... can't talk about that in detail here. <___< >___>
You live in Canada I see... many people in many countries these days would eventually take for granted the places they live in.
I ask you... never forsake Canada. At least you're not here.
Mm well what can you do when you have an idiot vs the other guy?
Why not? If you'd like to discuss it you can note me, I wouldn't mind hearing what you have to say.
Dude, I don't forsake Canada. I know I live in the best country there is (shamelessly patriotic for all of three seconds). At least I'm not ANYWHERE else. Sometimes I wish there was somewhere else to go, but when it comes right down to it, for now, Canada is the best place to be.
But what purpose does a so-called independant voice really serve in politics for the people's sake if in the end most of the time they just end up taking campaign funds and running when the election they never intended to win is over.
No... I'm just tired of this whacky lala land dynamic all around really.
