America Is... (By Me)

A country founded on pure principals
that are not always true
but mostly are
A country containing many different
but alike
A country of greed
and charity
A country of technology
A country of tools
A country of fools
A country of millions
with debt in the billions
A Bully
A Friend
A country with a hand to Lend
And a country that needs to Mend
A country that is broken?
A country that needs to be woken?
Home of the Brave
Land of the Free

America is up to you,
Not up to me;

It all depends on what you see.
America can't be defined by anyone but you.

1 America – a country that has leapt from barbarism to decadence without touching civilization. John O'Hara and he was an American.
2 America has progressed from barbarism to decadence without the intervening stage of civilization. George Bernard Shaw
3 America is the only country that went from barbarism to decadence without civilisation in between. Oscar Wilde.
Numerous other people have been credited with expressing that sentiment or something similar including Henry James, another American. However, in all probability the phrase originates with Georges Clemenceau when he was President of France.
America, so many people seem to dislike you.

A country that claims the name of an entire continent to itself alone for no compelling reason.
Mexicans, Colombians, Brazilians... they're Americans too.

A country with several pros and cons, often bashed by pseudo-intellectual teenagers on not realizing that urbandictionary is American. While the usa certainly has many flaws and shortcomings, presenting the country in black and white (eg:fat stupid lazy, etc) is nothing more than the ravings of dumbass teenager. The truth is that all countries have there upsides and downsides however being the most influential often means being the most bashed. It's funny how idiots claim that Americans stereotype when they themselves stereotype Americans.

Common sense: If you hate America so much why do you watch AMerican movies, Tv, listen to American music and buy AMerican products. .......... AND WHY DO YOU USE AMERICAN WEBSITES?

America is a country of utter fuckwads that are fat and lazy, and claim to be peacekeepers even though they've commited brutal atrocities just to get their overseas military-bases, into other countries borders. They (along with two other third world countries) use the imperial measurement system, which requires calculators to measure anything. Instead of metric, which have numbers increasing with an expenensial of 10, 100 or 1000. Oh and they also use fehrenheit instead of Celsius. And they also completely fucked up when it comes to the calandar. And the worst part: For profit prisons. Just fuck off with your "save" money mentality. If you invested in actual good prisons you wouln't need an atrocious police budget. It also suck when it comes to unempolyment benefits. Also, very car centric view, which is both unhealthy and unsustainable, and obviously terrible for the enviroment.
Person #1 what are the first three things you think of when you hear this word: America
Person #2 Obesity, Lazyness, Atrocities

American: I'm proud to be an american!
European: How could you be proud to be an American? You don't even use the metric system

Thermometer: 15
European: Celsius!
American: How much is that?
European: A little chilly

Sign: Due to the ongoing pandemic we will be closed until 20/6/2021
American: What, they have 20 Months in Europe?
European: No, we measure Day/month/year
American: Ahhhhh, right, which month is the sixth one
European: Fuck you!

European: So why are you blind
American: The prison guard hit the back of my head with a sledgehammer for disrespecting the warden.
European:.............. Warden?
American: The owner of the prison
European: That's not the government?
American: No that would be communist
European: "Snaps fat american neck"

American: Wait, how do you get to "local supermarket"?
European: Oh, you take the bus to "station" then you walk 5 minutes.
American: How long does it take to drive?
European: You can't, it is a pedestrian space only. I guess you could take the subway if you don't want to walk. Takes longer though
American: I don't wanna take that damn communist bus and train. Don't you have freedom in Europe.
European: More political freedoms that you bitch!
