Hypocritical Rant
Everyone is a hypocrite, even myself.

You want your rights and freedom, but what about the freedom and rights of your family, friends, neighbors, and the rest of the country as well as the world? Do you really have rights and freedom when you have to abide by rules and stipulations placed by other people? If you force your views and beliefs on others than you're no better than someone like Hitler. Think about it.

This country made it's claim to fame on freedom and rights for all. The question you should ask yourself now is where that has gone. Really think about it and don't just give some excuse on how people escape their country to live in America, cause that's bull and you know it. Our nation may be better than theirs but it is not the best, by far. I can rattle off at least half a dozen countries that are better than America. Just to name a few there are Canada, Britain, and Japan. Our claim to fame has become mostly hot air, and there's a hole in the balloon.

We all wish the world was one way or another, but then we realize that the world isn't. If everyone makes the excuse that the reason they act the way they do is because they're being a realist then no one will get anywhere. We'll stay exactly how we are today and never step into the future. If you really want the world to change then act like it. Act like the world should be and stop saving it for tomorrow.

But there's no point to any of this, cause none of it matters. Tomorrow you'll wake up and forget everything I just said. We're all masters when we want to make excuses for the way we act.

Don't forget Norway! :)
UN has listed it as the best country to live in 5 years in a row, based on education, liberties, health care, technology and other cool stuff.

Norway is one of the countries I can think of off the top of my head, thanks to knowing a number of you people. :-P

Good times, good times.

Wow, so true. I was almost preparing us to move to Canada because I'm sick of the shit in this country. Then today was the first snow that I had to encounter, and it still cold. I hate the cold. I can't move to Canada. I need somewhere warm. I want to run away.

Suggestions: California (at least it will be warm and has fairly progressive values compared to the rest of the country), Britain, Australia, Japan... *shrug*

My ultimate fantasy would be to colonize an island with all the people I want there. :-)

Well, if you can't get an island then colonize me a planet and we have a deal. :-P

That would work too.
