Recent, to me at least, statistic: Guess which develop country has highest rate of teen pregnancy and/or babies born to.
I give clues.
Try to guess this tough one.
Its not one that has not allowed abortion.
Its not one in which abortion has only recently been allowed.
Its not one in which condoms or clinics is a shortage.
Its not one in which little girls arnt taught about birth prevention.
(figure it out yet?)
Its got thousands of doctors able and willing to suck out unwanted fetuses of varrying ages.
Its obsessed with freedom for EVERYONE (...with whom it agrees with, that is).
OK, OK, your not going to get it so I do tell you, beleive or not its America, the United States of!
Well Im going to say it my observation is long enough now, the fate of this country is all but hopeless.
What we got?
Ok, the men and women are all mixed up, never will that go in reverse. All mixed up in the school, in the work, in the Congress, all over mixed up.
This means if one person realize what is main problem (MP) and how to correct problem, and any large group disagree, cannot dare to speak up that one person, and situation remain same, time bomb.
And if large group of people think they know what is problem and how to fix MP but other large group disagree again nothing can be remedy, time bomb.
Also, if a large group (FG) convince another large group (SG) that THEY (SG) are the problem, and the first group is wrong, then no matter how all cooperate nothing will improve, time bomb. And if one from SG persuade one or two from FG that they are wrong about the problem and even are the ones CAUSING the problem nothing again change, all few aware will be thrown aside, time bomb.
Once the vinegar is poured into the oil impossible to get it to leave without extreme measures, right?
So situation is hopeless.
More than this, here in this country those whith a chance to discover the problem have been dumbed down many decades so they think solution to MP is more-or-less evenly distribute, and if not so- and is not so- again, swimming up river but all get nowhere, time bomb. Boom.
So I ask how can turn trend around, I say not going to happen without involuntary revolution.
Those not have access to much American TV, may interest you to know that crisises in families so severe here that county has commissioned Brittish Nannies and dog trainers to teach millions of people their parental mistakes by way of television. No joke. They could not find any one here to teach these families or their pets, no one they would accept the hard truth from, no one willing to risk reputation and status and friendship not to mention precious free time. What Ive seen poor victimized children with mostly mothers who had no business ever being a mother in the first place. And there are millions coming to fill their shoes! The future looks very very grim for this country. Not even an Obama can save them.
I see parents mostly mothers who end up damaging their kids far more than any one deviant horny stranger ever could, yet the stranger often gets 5 to 10, mom and her partner get off scot free. Poor girl goes on to reck her own fatherless daughters in time, while the boys are fit for nothing honorable outside of carrying a machine gun and grenades, ending in a like of physical or psychological tragedy too. George Bush's fix, this is.
What happens if those least able to accept responsibility are most responsible.
Who can break it to them.
He will be replaced.
I dont think foreigners who dont spend much time here and for practical purposes become one of us, can ever know how desperate the situation is.
I could compare say with other english speaking developed country-
those in the know know that the entire world is frucked up, some more so than others.
How should we compare, by factors? a pie chart? sure
Wise men in Europe might say Britiain has a "long" way to go.
If so then quite honestly this USA has a long,long,long,long,long way to go.
Too long, in fact.
Its going to get ugly, hope im dead by then.
We're going to need thousands more intelligent nannies, indefinitely.
I cant turn the TV on but 5 minutes without cringing, and thats without dialing the news.
The contrast, in dialog, in behavior, in ideas, in attitudes, in countenance, in discipline, in exxpression, in every way the contrast with any other peoples is extreme and deeply disheartening.
What a relief to tune into say BBC for a bit. Just to taste a modicum of sense.
AND! The best of America is here, right there in that TV set. The scouts have screened the country for decades and tempted most of the most interesting, well-adjusted, beautiful, confident, and educated Americans into the hollywood life!
Where life is easy and fun and money-filled.
Some of the cream heed the call to hiigher things to country and the world but only a few.
enuf said, pass the kleenix.
