Or more specifically that last post. Americans are lovely, well no thats a blanket statement and as bad as saying you are all awful. We are all human. I just think that the checks and balances to save you, as individuals, from being misused, mistreated and generally conned or abused are sadly lacking and where loopholes exist they seem to be whacking great huge ones. Arseholes somehow make it into power at State level, with too much autonomy.
I feel sorry for you - the system is terribly lacking; hence the quip about sending in the UN to rescue you.
Are we friends?
