The economic, military and cultural premier player of the 20th century, the USA is a big place with many types of people. A place of contradictions, the populace of the self appointed “land of the free” seldom has over 2 weeks of vacation a year, often works over 50 hours a week and is in significant amounts of debt at any given time. A nation whose populace is the fattest in human history and is still somehow getting fatter, the USA is the birthplace of the airplane, basketball, the latest three major musical innovations (jazz, rock, rap), the major motion picture, as well as a plethora of writers, scientists, activists, philosophers, inventors and other people of note. For this reason, the USA is imitated by people in many parts of the world even while many of them hate it. Claims that the USA is a threat to world peace and stability are not unfounded.
Regarding the USA - don’t believe everything you see on TV.
