selling drugs aka hustling/grinding is an integral part of thug life. this leads to parentless kids, violence, and urban decay. tupac was an advocate of thug life.

are you finally starting to seperate the human beings in america from the political system your anger is directed at? good job.

and no buddy, thats not a fact. thats another oppinion. facts are backed up by scientific truth. that oppinion is conjecture.

yeah thats why millions of people protested. everybody thinks everything is fine. 100% of americans support the war. theres not an election coming up where this is a central issue. all americans watch is fox news. we all think canadians live in igloos, and we all LOOOOVE president bush.

you're right too cool. thanks for entertaining me before the bulls-heat game came on. OOOH **** you probably shouldn't watch that Basketball first became popular in america... ALL HAIL BUSH.

It's not that American's don't have a problem with it, its more a case of being insulated from real news. Our media sucks. They'd rather talk about some little boy whose dog is stuck in the bottom of a well, than the financial implications of something like the war in Iraq. Human drama sells.

Constant fear also makes it easy to sway opinion; which is pretty much basic republican "strate-gery" as far as the current generation of that party goes.

Another thing is that the media typically will not follow up on major things they report. For example, the war on Iraq orignially was sold to us on the basis of WMDs. But once we got there and found none, nobody really bothered to follow up on the big news and report how people were mislead.

This also happens in other cases. They might breakout a story saying so and so person is accused of committing ten murders or raped 20 women, and when it turns out the guy is innocent they won't follow up and clear it. While the accusations are front page material, the retraction is buried on page 10 in a tiny foot note or something.

you could say its people's responsibility to keep up with the news but with so much info out there its hard to place the entire blame on people for not being able to keep up with issues. Especially if its something that does not affect you directly. And this is a flaw in people everywhere, not just Americans. We're indifferent to any issue unless its hyped or affects us.
