Why is the United States a shit-hole?

Why is the United States a shit-hole?

For e.g. they have the murder rates of any developed nation in the world.

They have the highest rates of poverty. Inner cities are rife with desolate neighbourhoods. Nutrition and food quality is so poor.

Why is this the case?

Why is a America a shit-hole?
Apart from chattel slavery, Jim Crow, John C Calhoun, the Robber Barons, the Civil War, George Wallace, segregation, Ronald Reagan, violent crime, serial killers and Donald Trump, what makes America the shittest nation on earth?

It's a shithole for those who are too lazy to work, to stupid to avoid drugs or responsibilities they can't afford, or too selfish to respect the rights and property of others. I'm doing great, just like all of my friends.

Sounds awesome :thumb

I've worked in 33 states in their worst cities at night without a gun and I've never been beat up or robbed. Must not be too bad.

Dallas, Houston, San Antonio, Austin, Chicago, Philadelphia, Indianapolis, Baltimore, Atlanta, Los Angeles, Oakland, Albequerque, Denver, Kansas City, St. Louis, Tampa, Orlando, Washington DC.................. I've even worked in Mexico, but I won't be going back.

It's not because I'm afraid. It's because I don't support their opinion of my 2A rights. I respect their private property rights and take my business elsewhere.

What other sensible sane reason is there to carry a gun, if you aren't shit scared to go anywhere without one. Makes no sense whatsoever and lacks any form of rational logic.

So, how do you explain the high homicides rates in America? In cities like St Louis, Los Angeles, Baltimore, etc.?
Apart from chattel slavery, Jim Crow, John C Calhoun, the Robber Barons, the Civil War, George Wallace, segregation, Ronald Reagan, violent crime, serial killers and Donald Trump, what makes America the shittest nation on earth?

Next question: why are there so many drugs and gangs?

the last time you said that it was because you didn't think it was safe


don't get me wrong, I don't agree with the premise of the thread title. Sure there are things in the US that in my humble opinion could be changed, but there are also many positives about the US.

When I first went to the USA back in the late 1960's, it was a great place, pretty safe and even the cops were pretty cool. Over the years it has changed to now, so dangerous and bizarre, not worth going there at all. The coops are aggro, gun crazy and all seem on some form or medication which goes for the majority of yanks and if you think we have fat people here, that is nothing the USA, obesity to them is a sign of a good healthy yank. :rofl

It's cities are collapsing, everything is old, run down and the food is the most disgusting on the planet. Just about everything is deep fried, loaded with diaries, salt sugars, just junk and bloody awful to eat. Their beer is the pits, tastes crap and extremely watery.

Mind you today a large proportion of Aus food is no different but yanks take pleasure in making their food as greasy and uneatable as possible.

Who cares? Not I.

It’s a foreign country with foreign customs. It’s like trying to rationalise between broccoli and cauliflower-related but different.

Anything said about America from our Americans members should be treated as biased given that they are proudly patriotic with a propensity to brag. Read the posts from Texan as proof...
