i had some huge post that i fucked up and accidentally erased...
so ill reitiate the finer points
why an american wouldnt like america
stereotypes, horrible governmental services, gentrification, low quality of life, homeland security, capitalist corporations - basically if your not a rich right wing christian republican it kinda sucks to be here.
what to think about when talking about how "great" america is
sure we have uncensored porn (nasty look at Japan) but all other industries basically suck ass. the focus is not on the consumer but on exploiting and maximizing profit. things like healthcare, education, veterans affairs, energy, and technology are so archaic and profit driven they might as well not exist and they fail miserably. Insurance companies are EVIL (see Hurricane Katrina victims). Gentrification is a HORRIBLE problem. the economy is slipping and sliding all over the place. race issues are up every other week. corruption is rampant... its not the eden it usually assumed to be. i mean its infinitely better than other countries but compared to itself and the reputation it has its a devastating letdown.
but dont worry if you dont understand... its an american thing.
I like to die with the songs I love stuck in my head. I hope to make the most of these hollow bones we become.
I raise a toast to the the souls that sang all along. I've been gathering friends to just to make some sounds,
before the ship goes down, I've been making amends by making the rounds before the whole world ends

I have no interest in moving. America is a perfect place for me, I just don't like it.

Note: By "the south is full of fundamentalist morons", I don't mean to insult all Christians, just the ones who are out to lynch the homosexuals, kill the Muslims, etc. I grew up in the South. The vast majority of Christians I've met are good people.
