Are Americans More hung Up about sex than Britss

Been laid up for a few weeks with a virus so have been binge watching the internet on American and therefore world politics.

Boringly, the subject of Abortion comes up in just about every monologue or debate. I don't think Americans actually care about unborn babies (if they did they would have universal health care), Americans don't care about Americans with statements like "healthcare is not a right, only people who can afford it should have access to health care" and "healthcare should only be extended to those who have worked and earned it'............so i guess babies who have never worked shouldn't get medical care (damn lazy 6 month olds).

But back to Abortion, it's not about the protection of embryos, it's like this........don't have sex. Babies are punishment for having sex, especially pre-marital sex or drunken teenage party sex. If you you have sex, you will be punished by not being allowed to have an abortion. Then it gets more insane, some groups are trying to have birth control made illegal. Don't have sex, worship god instead....apparently. The final nail is, if you have sex and end up with a child, it will probably die eventually because as a society we will deny it medical services unless you are Bill gates and can pay for it, or someone with a Bushmaster Assault Riffle who gets dumped by his girlfriend decides to wipe out an entire high school. Who cares about Children as long as Arms manufacturers profits are up.

Do Americans understand that the rest of the world looks at America like the worlds biggest mental asylum.

As a country, it needs a blowjob more than any other nation on this planet.

Can't wait for the responses........que the outrage and frothing at the mouth, 1, stay out of Americas business...........no, cause you butt into ours 2, America is the greatest nation on earth.....no it's not, just look at the data 3. We don't care what the rest of the world thinks - you will when the rest of the world overtakes you.

I find it has always been difficult to see if anybody could fit in every inane media and cultural sterotype into one post.

Now I realise it is possible.

racedo,

Or is it the case that you don't like the list of facts presented?

Always amazed me how one set of extremists can be so Pro-life whilst at the same time being Pro Gun and the death penalty.

America has never been "pro-life".

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty ..."

If they'd ever seriously intended to take the "life" bit seriously they'd have had a think about
  • the death penalty
  • gun laws
  • health care
  • the extent to which they rampage around the world killing people all over the shop
and remember also that the "liberty" bit was a declaration by a slave-keeping society. OK so they sorted that one, but it took a hundred years, and the US still locks up far more of its citizens than any other society.

No. Americans are a bunch of prudes, but with the endearing quality of also being the biggest producer of porn on the planet. Brits are just prudes.

If you ever have the bad luck to be in some Caribbean location or similar around Spring Break you might be surprised how the partying Americans throw caution and modesty to the wind.
It is indeed a sight to see.
I have been involved in 18-30 and the like, photoshoots and never seen such wild abandoned behavior. Almost like they are experiencing some kind of release from stringent morality code in their own country.
Fairly harmless and entertaining nevertheless !

Got some quotes from insurance providers for a family of 4.

$27,000 per year. WTF Who can afford that

BTW I had a 2 night stay in hospital 3 weeks ago which included surgery, x rays, pathology etc etc etc

Total out of pocket cost = $6.70.....that was for diet coke, mars bar and newspaper from the Kiosk. It would have cost me $21,000 in the USA. I don't have 21,000 to pull out of my ass instantly so basically I would have been dead right now. Yes it was quite serious.

I gather that in the USA if you don't work you shouldn't get medical services, .....do they put children with disabilities or babies born with deformities in hessian sacks and drown them in the local river?

Bear in mind that the U.S. media went into a collective tailspin at the sight of one of Janet Jackson's nipples a wee while ago whilst parents are buying assault rifles for their 16 year olds' birthdays. .

Begins to look like it, doesn't it.

I'm sure you are welcome to start one. But please remember the proper respectful American term for foreigners: "aliens".

So, Nomo, did somebody force you to move to the US?

If not, just stay where you are, “laid up” as you might be, and let us here carry on, prudish or not.

We must be doing sonething right, though, because it seems folks are willing to walk from Honduras to the US.

A strange topic, indeed. The USA, being a country with 320+ mln people can not be painted black or white. Obviously, there are many tens of mlns wonderful people and also mlns of those who need treatment at a mental asylum. Among a few hundreds I dealt with there personally the absolute majority represented the first group but they were mostly in aerospace, hi-tech and some showbiz.
The topic starter was probably addressing politics ( and media controlled by them) and, yes, politics is a different world.

<<< Do Americans understand that the rest of the world looks at America like the worlds biggest mental asylum.>>>

I do not think so.

<<< As a country, it needs a blowjob more than any other nation on this planet. >>>

Yes, that's true, IMHO. But since there are so many countries that are happy to provide this kind of services, they will expect to keep enjoying.
And, IMHO, there is no contradiction of being pro-life and pro death penalty (for ultimate criminals that took many other lives).

Haha, I Iove how some Americans think immigration is proof of the great superiority of their country. I believe per capita other nations are even more popular, and, as some of them are (whisper it), are borderline socialist!

All you need to know is that pro-life and pro death penalty are basically the same circle on a Venn diagram. These people have absolutely no interest in increasing human welfare, and Jess would condemn them I am sure.

Interestingly in parts of the USA have the same life expectancy as Rwanda. You'd think people would get more worked about that than their right to shoot people. But you'd be wrong.

On topic, yes some parts of America are strangely prudish. Britain can be too. I never understood it, I assume it's people who are getting less sex than everyone else and it makes them angry about it. Everyone's doing it, it's pretty much literally the most natural thing on earth, i's extremely enjoyable, and yet people et worked up about others doing it? Though the US also has a strange thing about cursing. See our friend Marco Rubio getting upset about people cursing in response to people being shot dead. Yes, the cursing was definitely the problem there.

The levels of hypocrisy can be utterly staggering to an outsider. For instance those who will defend the constitution to their dying day and talk about their 'values' being eroded in the modern day. Presumably they preferred thel pre civil rights movement values. What wonderful times for all.

Fortunately, the parts of the USA with the best looking people, tend to be the least prudish. Which can work out rather well for a tourist.

So, Neila, your way of judging the successful places in this world seems to be the level of copulation, and the frequency of cussing.

Perhaps in time you will develop more mature values.

obgraham,

Nope, I think neila83 is spot on and the more of it the better!

Or would you prefer school/synagogue/shopping Mall mass shootings?
