Whenever someone is outraged at the “system” or the leaders of this country and feels like protesting, there is always someone laughing it off telling us that the US is not as bad off as some of the worst countries in the world. Amazing! We have a First Amendment, so if someone is unhappy, he’s damn well allowed to speak his mind. And further, just because we’re not as bad off as Iran, that doesn’t mean we can’t do better. And if we can’t protest anymore and make our voices heard, we might just be off worse then some of those ‘often mentioned’ countries in comparison.

What happened to our sense of pride and our strive for fucking excellence?
