Murika - the land of the thieves and the home of the slaves.
One thing I do hate about most Aussies is we seem to be more worried about what is happening in America than what is happening on our own soil?

I have a lot of American friends and most of them say the say thing
"Oh f no you don't want to be like us and you Aussies have NFI how good you have things?"

Australia is the 53rd state of Murika. I'm sure you know who the 51st and 52nd states are ;)

America isnt that bad. Just a little loopy by first world standards.

I'm a members f some Zimbabwe groups and you should see the dumb shit you see there. People offering miracles for money - and ppl buying them! and so much obvious fake news articles shared and people swallow them up.

my white friend who lives in Harare says he sees the funniest dumb shit on a daily basis. But there is a dark side because they machetes each other to death over rumours.

America is in disarray. Theres little doubt about that. But the root cause of that disarray
is The Democrats. They support any sort of idiocy. The good news is America is in good hands
with Donald J.Trump in charge.

I personally believe they're both to blame. Was listening to an interesting psychology analysis of the American Bipartisanship the other day where they covered how American politicians create such a massive divide and conflict between the people.

The simple breakdown of it is that people generally have two responses to a thread:

1) Known Threat - If the threat is known then people respond with anger and passion

2) Unknown Threat - If the threat is unknown then people respond with fear and anxiety

So you take an unknown threat or a threat with an unknown cause (US unemployment, poor economy, poverty) and you give it a face to make it a known threat. Trump does this better than most politicians. Examples:

Unknown threat = High Unemployment = Trump: "Unemployment is high because of the immigrants" = Known Threat: People get angry and blame the immigrants
Unknown threat = Economic Downturn = Trump: "The Democrats under Obama messed up this country" = Known Threat: People get angry and blame Obama and the Democrats

I call the guy an idiot all the time but he is good at politics. He knows how to twist public opinion to bring people over to his side.

So I've lived in the states for a lot of years, and maybe will again if they can get their shit together, which probably means, I never will again. Anyhows, here's 3 photos I took with my own phone in a tiny town called 'Rochelle' in Illinois.
