Dear Anonymous Hippie

You know i'm getting pretty tired of hearing people rant and rave about some big American government conspiracy against the people. Here's a thought: if you're an American why don't you move to one of your socialist Greenpeace utopias like New Zealand and live in bliss? If you're not an American then shut the fuck up.

I have never claimed that America was some kind of Garden of Eden. All i know is that the times i have been there i have felt comfortable and at home. I have enjoyed talking to Americans and - yes - i enjoy watching CNN and Fox. This is precisely contrary to Australia, where i have never felt at home, where just about everyone i talk to pisses me off, and where i find the media so painfully awful it's not funny.

Oh no. Americans drive SUVs. Big fucking deal. Get over your puritanical self and suck it up or pack your bags.
