A Fair Statement It Is.....

a: America ~
b: immature girl in high school

What: "Remember that immature girl in high school, who every little thing that happened to her meant that someone either hated her or was obsessed with her; who thought every teacher who ever gave her a bad grade was being totally unfair and everything good that happened to her was because of how amazing she was? Yeah, we're that immature high school girl."

Feudalism With Nice Shiny Smart Phones

a: America ~
b: feudalistic society

What:

"Typical New York behavior in the financial industry. Just like all the major banks, just like all those institutions, steal it, then hide behind a army of lawyers and bought politicians to keep it. How else do they garner so much wealth while producing absolutely nothing? The whole thing is a scam. Do we really need to pay someone billions of dollars to determine how many train loads of corn gets delivered to the Kellogs plant? The whole city exist on fraud. America produces a 15 trillion dollar economy, yet those who produce it get very little from it. 20 dollars per hour is minimum wage in 1980 money, and that's what a skilled technician maintaining 40 million dollars of aircraft and liable for any accidents makes for the effort. America has become a joke. A feudalistic society instead of a capitalist one. "

a: America ~
b: Norma Desmond

What:

"In another respect, though, the similarities between Norma Desmond and Los Angeles indeed, between Norma Desmond and America as a whole are distinct. We twirl grandly through our fraying mansion, dreaming that the glory days aren't really over. In both cases there's massive denial of ongoing decline. Nobody wants to confront the fact that the infrastructure is crumbling."

a: America ~
b: house salad

What:

"America is not a "melting pot", it's a house salad, and people are constantly trying to pick out the parts they don't like."
