The following is how I believe average Americans and Americans kept away from the territory I like to call the real world would respond to Ankhesen Mie’s post entitled “Let’s”. The post is a comment made by Antonio Villamargo found in the MSNBC article, “European Union: No strikes on Syria before UN Report.”
Let’s spend millions on education and economic development in America.
Why? There’s nothing terribly wrong with our education system. The kids are failing because of bad parents and bad cultures.
Let’s rebuild Detroit and New Orleans.
Why should we rebuild them? Both cities were nice before the blacks moved in, and then they wrecked everything. They should rebuild them, if they knew how. Thank God for Katrina.
Let’s build schools, bridges, roads, highways, trains, trolleys in an efficient and timely manner.
They are just fine. Nothing’s wrong with them. If there is a problem, it will be taken care of right then and there.
Let’s run local governments intelligently with a focus on the needs of their community – not political agendas.
Do you love America?
Let’s end the exportation of jobs and manufacture of products.
But it’s good for business.
Let’s utilize the innovations that Americans have invented and developed.
We do, like TVs and cars and stuff like that.
Let’s seize upon the resources of solar, electric and other resources.
What are you, a treehugging liberal? Oil will never dry up. It is the best resource available. Plus, it makes a lot of money. It’s what makes America so great.
Let’s invigorate what was once massive industries such as fishing and logging in an environmentally sensitive yet productive manner.
That sounds like a lot of time and money.
Let’s diversify our currency, our economy and other economic bases. Let’s create full time family wage jobs. Let’s respect unions for their collective power to insure adequate not excessive benefits for their members. Let’s reward Owners, CEOs, CFOs, etc. based upon actual monetary success for their respective companies and nothing less.
Well sure, if you want to ruin the economy that way. Corporations are the backbone of capitalism. The more they profit, the better it is for our economy.
Let’s reward war veterans for their life threatening service to their government.
We do! They fought for our country.
Let’s reward teachers for their often neglected job environments.
If teachers do a good job, then we will reward them, but we have a good educational system here. It’s the teachers who are screwing up, along with kids and parents.
Let’s learn to work intelligently and respectfully with individuals and countries with different beliefs than our own.
We do, but only if we see fit that they need us to help them in their conflict. Then again, I don’t see the reason to. They never want to help us whenever we go to war somewhere. So, why should we give a damn about the U.N.?
And Americans citizens do work intelligently and respectfully with individuals. We see human beings first and their differences last. We don’t see things like race or color. We judge people by the content of their character, just like what Martin Luther King said.
Let’s end ignorance in the form of racism, sexism, nationalism, religion or any other -ism – such as materialism or even a person’s charisma.
What are you, some kind of communist or something?
Let’s not judge a musical band based on how they look but on how they sound.
Hey, it’s all about the gimmick. After all, sex sells.
Let’s make movies with intelligent plot points, moving and convincing actors not comic book special effects.
Oh c’mon. No one wants to watch a movie that will make them think. They want action, sex and drama. They want entertainment, not intelligence.
Let’s move beyond a 5th grade literacy level of easily consumed entertainment. Let’s move away from reality TV programming of gossip and argument to TV shows of people having fun together – working together as a team – appreciating one another. Oh and I don’t know, maybe saying something intelligent once in a while after the 20 minutes of TV commercials.
Again. That stuff sells. People want that. Look at the ratings. Look at the millions of dollars it generates. People don’t want to think while being entertained.
Let’s train our minds to be deeper, more intellectual – with greater empathy and understanding of ourselves and those around us. Let’s serve the need we all have to learn and grow and become better people. Let’s see this world as a place where all of us must work together to survive and prosper. And yes, when there are incidents on the World Stage – let’s work collectively and responsibly as a team player with the organizations that exist to address those issues – namely the United Nations and North Atlantic Treaty Organization.
I’ll ask you again because you didn’t answer. Do you love America!?
You seem to have a lot of criticisms toward this country, pal! I LOVE my country! It is the greatest in the world! There’s no other nation that gives you so much freedom! There’s no other nation with the greatest military in the world! And we will fight for our freedoms!
We have problems. I will admit it, but it’s all because of urban ghetto thugs and hoodrats causing crime and stealing welfare and illegal immigrants coming in stealing all of our jobs from good hardworking Americans. America would be an even greater place to live without all those “people” starting shit.
Damn darkies. They should be more grateful to us bringing their black asses here in the first place. Yet, they always whine and complain about slavery and racism. The only reason they exist is because of them. Why can’t they be more like the Orientals?
But don’t you dare call me racist for using my 1st Amendment right.
America would be a greater place if it wasn’t for the women, the poor, Indians, gays, Muslims and anyone else who loves to complain about equal rights. If they would just work hard and pull up their bootstraps, everything will work out for them. But they just like to whine and moan.
It’s clear you hate America, buddy. Otherwise, you wouldn’t be making such dumb statements. If you hate us so much, why don’t you fucking move? I will always love my country no matter what because I am a proud American, you leftard!
What do you think? Anything you would like to add?
