Letter to the Editor

Writer says Americans: "selfish, self-centered, and immature brats"

web posted January 8, 2010
Dear Editor:
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 available.
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.
