The things I hate about American Society
    #6260324 - 11/08/06 03:22 AM (7 years, 11 months ago)

1. People who complain about "bad language." Everyone and their mother uses "bad language," even you. You may not always say it, but you're still thinking it. It's our language. It's our culture. It's how we effectively communicate our emotions to each other. When 270 million Americans use the word "shit" every day it's just asinine to censor the word "shit." Stop pretending to be offended. Just chill out and get the fuck over it.

2. Superficiality. Whoever said "the clothes make the man" had no idea what a man is. You can cover an asshole with silk but it's still just an asshole. Some of the biggest jerks in the country are also some of the best dressed. In fact, the better you are dressed, the more likely it is that you are a jerk because you look down your nose at those who don't look as good a you. The truest measure of a man is in his heart and mind, and neither of those things can be purchased at the mall.

3. Democrats and Republicans. You don't care about what's best for the country. You only care about what's best for YOU and your party. You whine and bicker and cry like young children stuck together in the back seat on a long road trip. "Mom, he's making faces at me!" "Mom, he's touching me!" SHUT UP! Life is not left and right, black and white, good and bad, ying and yang. Reality sits somewhere in between. Look for it.

4. Celebrity. I don't care if Elizabeth Taylor gets married 50 times. I don't care if Tom Cruise got his wife pregnant. I don't care if Paris Hilton made a porno. I don't care if Eminem fnally reached puberty. None of these people have anything at all to do with my life. They're not paying my bills. They're not putting food on my table. They're not partying with me on saturday night and they're certainly not sleeping with me. I don't care. I don't care. I DON'T CARE!

5. Celebrity panhandlers. I feel much sympathy for the homeless, the starving, and the sick. I really do. But if your last movie or DVD made more money than I can expect to make in my lifetime, don't beg for my money. Give them your money instead, you selfish prick.

6. Popular victimhood. For a long time women and minorities got a bad deal in this country. No one can argue about that. But there comes a time when you have to stop living in the past and accept the fact that even though your ancestors were victims, you are not. Today, women and minorities hold many positions of great power, influence, and private enterprise. It has long since become politically and culturally unacceptable to be prejudiced against women and minorities in this country. Embrace your equality and be happy.

7. Prohibition. Prohibition is a fool's errand. Government cannot stop consumer demand.

8. "Drugs and Alcohol." You say it as if alcohol is not itself a drug. You try to create the illusion that drinkers are not drug users. This illusion allows you to criticize others without the burden of facing your own blatant hypocrisy. If you consume alcohol you are a drug user. That's all there is to it.

9. "Love it or leave it." I do love it. That's exactly why I endeaver to improve it. I must question your love for this country if you are content to ignore its shortcomings instead of working to fix them.

10. The irrational, unreasonable, illogical, and childish remarks that are sure to come from those who read this, and even from those who didn't

Maybe in order to understand mankind, we have to look at the word itself: "Mankind". Basically, it's made up of two separate words - "mank" and "ind". What do these words mean ? It's a mystery, and that's why so is mankind.

Thank you!

I am so sick of getting shit from people for smoking weed while they're stumbling around drunk. At least my drug doesn't make me say the same stupid shit over and over again like a moron, start a fight for no reason, drive my car off the road, or puke all over myself.

I drink and smoke.  Sometimes in extreme excess.  And I don't do any of those things.  :shrug:

No.

Weed impairs you slightly, but it doesn't give you the "beer muscle" bravado that causes accidents, fights and midnight calls to your ex-girlfriend's father. It opens your mind, and relaxes you. It also doesn't eat away your liver or damage your body.

Smoking it (inhaling burnt matter) is kinda harmful, but now we are nitpicking. You can always vaporize or cook with it.

These 10 things are the tip of the iceberg. :smile:

That's too easy.
You just have to observe Americans posting @ the shroomery to see racism and sexism are still big issues in the USA. Not complaining about it, but committing it.

And what's with every other thing being called "gay"?

I've started using "gay" to mean "bad", as in:

"Man that new sports car is BAD!"

Or

"Yay! our sports team wone the championship... That's totally GAY!"

1. a lot of people don't curse. My ex girlfriend never cursed. at all. Its nicer that way. I dont really curse that much except when I am at work cause everyone does all the time.

2. Clothes do make the man. Dont dress like a slob. It's nice to take your girlfriend out to dinner somewhere nice without some slob in a metalica t shirt there...

8. everyone drinks alcohol and its legal. they say that simply because people dont think of it as a drug

9. Leave it if your gonna constantly bitch about trivial things
