Watch all the white dudes that hate diversity programs comment on this. All the dog whistling and racism on this site is a good representation of the finance industry

Haha yes, everywhere else is tryna be like the US: thousands of homeless people in every single city, mass shooting every day, kids can't go to school without being scared of being shot, violent riots every year, can't figure out how to treat women and minorities, can't figure out how to deal with wild fires, can't figure out how to deal with opioids, thousands dying from COVID every single day, have the most fat people on the planet, broken healthcare system, f'ed up bureaucracy. Only country in the world yes.

Trump is the president- there's not much left to talk here we're already fucked. There's a 1000% chance that Mr. Clown is selling National secrets to his daddy Putin

Oh I actually fucking wish Trump collaborated with Putin. We would have pummeled ISIS to shit much quicker, brought Turkey to heel (and restored Constantinople), purged the CIA of Israeli intelligence, left Saudi Arabia out to dry (Iran is the more reasonable Islamic theocracy), dumped that mafia state called Ukraine, put the breaks on globalization, and most importantly, reduced the threat of global nuclear war.

Russia builds churches and aggressively combats drug use and alcoholism. America celebrates sexual predators and laughs as its working class is decimated by opioids.

No single person, a group, or a country is truly good or bad. They are complex because they are all trying to survive and thrive. Sometimes horrible things happen and sometimes good things happen. 

You SHOULD look at both the good and the bad and assess what's going well and what's going poorly.
Focus on all the negative stuff and it makes the US look horrible. Focus on all the good stuffs, and the US looks like a paradise. Neither is true.

Also fuck Disney for pushing this idea of good vs evil since we were kids. The world doesn't work like that.
