What makes you tick?

What drives you? What moves you? What interests you? Why don't you talk about it? Because you watch TV. A lot. Over five hours a day are filled with filling our minds with commercials, soaps, movies, news and the occasional documentary.

The average American (not you of course!) spends about two hours a day with the smartphone and about an hour and a half talking to the significant other. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-2333261/We-spend-MORE-time-phones-partner.html

Do we really value television and phone more then our kids or partners?

It appears so but what do you think?

Imagine America as a dictatorship

What is your idea of a Democracy? And does America hold up to that idea? No. Read this article to learn why:
http://talkingpointsmemo.com/livewire/princeton-experts-say-us-no-longer-democracy

America will never be a Democracy. Not as long as people as Sarah Palin and Eric Dondero have a thing or two to say. The latter argued with me that 'all socialists are nazi f*cks!' or something the like. I told him only insecure people use swearwords in stead of arguments and asked him one simple question: 'What is socialism really? And please answer that question without checking FoxNews.com first.' Of course he couldn't. Furthermore he stated he hates people on welfare 'because they are too lazy to work!' But on the other hand he tells people to quit their jobs if they find out their boss voted Democrats. So he hates people on welfare and wants Republicans to go on welfare.

What do you think: can we blame the American education system for their (Palin's and Dondero's) stupidity or is there something more to it than that?

And just imagine America as a dictatorship:

You are prejudiced

We all have our prejudices. Yes, including you.
We see a movie that's historically correct and shout: 'Hey, that's not right! He's a Scotsman so he should wear a kilt!' When the story is situated before the 1600's it's absolutely correct. And you are wrong.

Thing is: the media have so much power over us that we rather believe Hollywood filmmakers than our history teacher. Name the first three things that come to mind when you think of Holland and once more answer the question: 'Are you prejudiced?'
