I just got done watching a hilarious but true video about New Yorkers
YouTube - Sugar Man: It's all about Eating Out and it got me thinking that Americans are stupid in general and have no common sense. What happened that made us lose our common sense? We're pulling strings tfor some ****ing Wal Mart and letting all the real things go.

Like the guy in the video said, "you grew in Brooklyn, you grew up with balls." My father's from Brooklyn so I'm lucky enough to be raised around a guy who knows reality. I'm sick and tired of this Wal Mart **** and I'm sick and tired of this Target and McDonald's ****. From now on, I'm vowing never to step foot in a McDonald's, Wal Mart, Target, or anything like that again, mark my words.

We need to form a long chain and quit buying into this garbage, it's destroying the country.

You might want to take a second look at what's contributing to destroying this country. That video was full of character. How profoundly sad; they definitely spoke like they were loaded with common sense. Of course, it was so intelligent, I only watched about 60 seconds of it. It was more than my pea brain could assimilate.

Who cares? What's wrong with cussing? It's good for emphasis. My parents let me cuss all the time and I'm 17.

There was not one thing that was profound or Earth shattering about that video. There is a difference in cussing for emphasis and cussing because you have the vocabulary of a moron. F this and F that isn't the sign of having a set, or having common sense; it is a sign of not having a clue about how to talk about anything without sounding like an idiot. Don't get me wrong, I cuss (probably too much actually) but after working in construction for 26 years it kind of comes second nature. Difference being I don't cuss just to hear words spilling out of my mouth, just to make noise because I have nothing else to say and no clue how to hold a conversation if I did.

BTW, that looked like an awesome pie! If it tasted half as good as it looked that would be worth buying any day of the week. I can just imagine how it would look and taste coming out of a real brick pizza oven instead of what he was using.

No it wouldn't have. It would have been lessened. That is a lesson some will never learn or understand.

And "I have an effing Dream" wouldn't be admired by children in the class room for its 'emphasis'

Hopefully, he will learn, but if he has been raised around a guy who knows reality, he's going to have to find his own way. The true reality here is total lack of any kind of sense. Where there is breath, there is hope.
