What If?

When the truth is denied it will always come back and bite you in the ass.
Greg Banks

“The US is not a superpower. It is a bankrupt farce run by imbeciles who were installed by stolen elections arranged by Karl Rove and Diebold. It is a laughing stock, that ignorantly affronts and attempts to bully an enormous country equipped with tens of thousands of nuclear weapons.”

What If?

What if Americans were more aware of their worldly surroundings?

What if Americans realized that people are the same all over rather than simply black, white, yellow and red?

What if Americans realized that all people want the best for their children, they want shelter, food, medical care?

What if Americans realized that all the people in the world eat, drink, fornicate, defecate and put their pants on in pretty much the same way?
What if Americans understood that a passport is a key and not a burden?
What if Americans realized that there are other languages and the importance of communication.

But the big shots at NBC, Boeing and Pfizer must grow their salaries beyond their profit margin and squeeze out a whopping paycheck now at around 500 times that of the workers while the GDP remains virtually static month after month? The rich must get their due rewards while the other 90 percent are missing payments, losing jobs and choosing between food and pills?
Maybe what Americans want is not in their own best interest or that of America.
