My reaction when I discovered about USA politics*

10485293_10152974500829179_8938961547007090476_n I knew the American Dream was more complicated than we´ve been led to believe but I wasn´t prepared for what I´ve discovered: racism is still (!!!) a major social problem in the country; there is no public health system (Obama´s intentions are clearly being sabotaged by the Corporations which are running the entire world; they´re trying to do the same in Europe: delivering public health to private insurance companies who will juice every penny from citizens without any regard for social justice or HUMAN RIGHTS); corporations rule the Government, not only in the USA but all over the globe; consumism  and material addictions (LARGE PORTIONS of pretty much everything) lead most people´s lives making them forget they have a mind or a soul of their own; most of the taxes Americans pay go to the Ministery of War (if they didn´t put their nose in other country´s oil and sucked it to the bones, they would probably not need to obsess so much about being “attacked” and, no, I´m not defending terrorism by saying it: what I´m saying is that countries which invade other countries are more prone to be invaded or attacked – here´s a LOGICAL equation, NOT a terrorism defense!); prisons´major dirty business having to jail black men with or without reason; the WAR industry and…oh, man…don´t get me started. 

One loud word: TERRIFYING.

One question: do Americans realize the only true NATIVE AMERICANS are the INDIANS? Yep: those folks who seem to have been erased from North America´s History? Those same folks: those  are the original americans. Foreigners came after them and they´ve been the ones who built what we now know as USA.

Side note: this is not an opinion; it´s a fact. Suggestion 😉 : if more Americans bothered to study their own country´s History instead of overeating themselves to death (literally) with McDonalds in front of television, maybe racism and social injustices would pleasantly  disapper. Just sayin..10624715_10152974500794179_1282745859926628921_n

  1. Geez Joana, your view of America is to say the least is “sad.” A couple of your remarks really made the hair stand up on the back of my neck and I felt a surge of being pissed off. But we all see things different. Our president Obama is a snake, a closet radical muslim who does not have the guts of a newborn. The health program that he has set up leaves poor folks like me without (medicines) to be able to functon I am talking “anti-convulsent medicines” The Pharm companys the ones making and handing out the drugs as they see fit are killing us!

    “most of the taxes Americans pay go to the Ministery of War (if they didn´t put their nose in other country´s oil and sucked it to the bones, they would probably not need to obsess so much about being “attacked”); ” By this Joana do you mean we deserve being attacked because we have put our nose in other countries oil?” I am tired of hearing about “woe is me on the black race shit.” People are people and our president pits people all over the country in a fight with each other because of color and faith. He and his itch of a wife hate I mean hate white people.

    Native Americans have been abused since time. I have spent much time on reservations in my life and one of them is in South Dakota. I sat on the ground in a blizzard when we were at Wounded Knee graves. Just Lance and me and our dog. I swear to god the spirits talked with me. Some Native American groups work so hard to improve only for the government to kick them, in the back again and again. People these days are NOT paying close attention to the dying of my great country! If we Americans are such horrible people why do so many want to come here and taste our freedoms?

    “if more Americans bothered to study their own country´s History instead of stuffing themselves with McDonalds in front of television, maybe racism and social injustices would pleasantly disapper. Just sayin… ” Our teaching system has gone to shit! Which is another subject all together all these things you wrote bits and pieces of make me question who you are? I am so surprised at your negative and hurtful sayings. True or not I wonder if you gave us a benefit of doubt since you were in my country? I feel sad and hurt of your judgements as I don’t judge you as a person at all, I have a 100 questions for after reading your book, because I am curious but I have not asked as I did not want to hurt or offend. I hope you and I can talk this through and become better friends. If not well please one needs to spend more time in my incredible country and its original standings as in our Constitution.

    • Thanks for your comment, opinion and further clarification, dear Carlene. I appreciate them.
      Making things clear:
      First: I´m not advocating pro or against Obama and I have no idea from where you got that conclusion.

      Second: I´ve never said ” we deserve being attacked because we have put our nose in other countries oil?” – than again: no idea WHERE you found that conclusion but please pinpoint it to me. As far as I know myself, I ´m far from being a terrorist supporter and that´s what your comment implies. I just believe the obvious: a country that juices most of people´s taxes for Military Defense has a REASON to do so. A country which focus on military invasions (way before Afghanistan and Iraq) is not PRO-PEACE at all and is more prone to be attacked back – this is not a terrorist defense statement but a LOGICAL (1+1=2) conclusion.

      Third:You mention Obama and his wife hate white people – then again, no comment. That´s not the information I have but I respect your sources, whatever they may be.

      Fourth: Then again: you put words in my mouth (or text): “If we Americans are such horrible people why do so many want to come here and taste our freedoms?”. I never wrote or said Americans are horrible people – I´ve just stated the terror I felt at politics and social issues in America as I state regarding Egypt, the whole Middle East and even Europe. It´s not a personal attack on people but on their Governments or the Corporations who actually rule us all. Then again: words I never said mixed with Native Americans (Indians) who DO seem quite ignored in USA, as far as I could see it (and maybe I´m wrong – I wish I am).

      Fifth: you mention the “shit educational system” – not me. Again: YOU mention it, not me. I do think most Americans seem uneducated about their own History and the world in general. Once more: I may be wrong (wishing so) – clarify me if this is the case. I´m all for learning.

      At last (but not the least 😉 : “Which is another subject all together all these things you wrote bits and pieces of make me question who you are?” Wow – this is plainly judgemental and getting way close to personal offense. Nothing in my post aims at offending American people or someone in particular but the POWERS THAT ARE RULLING US ALL and destroying our planet and our lives. But you go a step further and bluntly ask “who am I?”. Answering to your question in a very few words: I´m a human being who happens not to be sleeping – that´s who I am (hope this answers your question – contact me directly for further clarifications; I´ll be glad to clarify you). Thanks for your “interesting” contribution – I´ve learn a little bit more about America thanks to it.
