Sorry for making so many posts. I had like a storage of unanswered questions and, well, you all give very good answers and seem to be very fine people. Anyways, I was set on fire the other day when I over heard a class mate at college. I can't remember what he said exactly, but it was something like this; "America thinks it is freakin awesome when it is not." "We get involved with all of these stupid wars and lie to us why we go to them." "I bet that the Persian Golf War was just over oil and that it had nothing to do with saving innocents." "America doesn't give a damn over who is free or not, it just cares about how much money is in its pockets." "WW2 was a joke and we shouldn't have gotten involved in any other war past it." "I think that America thinks it is the protector of the world or something." "I mean, Europe is mad at us for going over in WW2 anyways." "All we done was cause a bunch of destruction." "We should have let things work itself out." IMO, my generation needs to be nick named "The *****ers". I have googled some of these things, but I am not finding the answers I am seeking. I am 17, and that means that my knowledge is still very limited. I am struggling with paying college all of my money and my parents money... I mean... I am struggling taking their class's right now. (College is a scam... a doctor doesn't need Algebra.) Anyways, how can I say the exact opposite to what he said. I want to fight what he is saying, but not with fists. He is telling others this and they are starting to believe him. It is freakin retarded.
