Writer says Americans: "selfish, self-centered, and immature brats"
posted January 8, 2010
Do you ever get the feeling that we, Americans of The United States,
are some of the most selfish, self-centered, and immature brats that
ever lived ? I am not claiming to be guilt-free, but look at our
national situation as a whole.
We have supposed “leaders” in Washington, D.C. that will not agree to
“take-care-of-our-own” in the form of Health Care Reform, but they
continue; well over seven years; to send U.S. Troops in harm’s way and
to spend hundreds of billions of dollars on two un-necessary wars in
countries that are reported to have very corrupt governments.
We have probably ten to fifteen percent of the richest; most powerful
people in the world, yet these brats are the very “Americans” that are
sending our jobs; and perhaps our very future stability; to other
countries ! At what point in unemployment and under-employment
will these so-called “Americans” understand the very real damage that
they are causing to the very country that they call “home”?
The over-whelming majority of us are not guilt-free; either. When
are the parents and grand-parents of our generation going to understand
that you can not always treat yourself and “little Johnny and Sue” to
every brand-new do-dad that comes along?
There are probably millions of Americans who are absolutely so immature
in their finances that they have very little savings; in the bank; yet
they treat themselves to every monthly billing service amenity
In closing, I believe I heard, on the national news, that The U.S.
Government is technically in debt to China by over 300 billion dollars.
I truly pray that the rampant selfishness, self-centeredness, and gross
immaturity in our nation will subside before we all are totally
indebted to foreign powers.
