It's not that I don't like politics - it's just that more than any other nation in the world - America comes across as the "spoiled brat" nation; greedy, ignorant of others needs and self centered. Then when a disaster happens that they are largely if not completely responsible for, they are the first to either point the finger at others or whinge and complain about how they've been hard done by.

I heard of a big party this coming weekend at a copper baron's house out in the burbs of Louisville. I am sure by 11pm most of the guests will be drunk, it may be an easy score and with the price of copper these days you know the guy is loaded...........
