A Conversation for Inhabitants of the USA

I certainly agree with this article. I just would like for our people in the White House, now, past and future, to worry more about football scores, and so forth than what is going in somebody else's country. In my travels most people here and elsewhere just want to be left alone.
I enjoy people from other countries and enjoy visiting other countries. Some Americans have chastised me for asking someone where they are from saying that it is racist to ask this. They need to reflect on this, it is interest in their country, culture and history that sparks my interest. I have seen more acceptance of others in small towns than in urban areas. It is just that in urban areas one can be accepted by their annomenity.

That's true, and the U.S. Foreign Policy reflected this for a very long time. But after World Wars I & II escalated far out of control for absolutely pitiful reasons (at heart), and dragged the U.S. into something they really had nothing to do with, it's easy to understand why we're so overbearing about "letting the children play".
