If it was a story about socialized medicine in Canada and that was posted, we'd have a nice America-bashing session going.
The most powerfull country will always be the most watched and picked apart. Usually due to a mix of bruised egos, and power tripping. Its also because of the many freedoms and rights given to its people that there is so much difference in points of view, and a forum is given to show them all.
Unfortunatly it also makes people whine and complain about absolutly everything. I think if people stopped taking for granted what they have available to them, they would stop bitching so much.
These big whiners who are never happy with the USA or Canada for example, should try going to North Korea and tell a government offical they are mistreating their people, or try and start a rally in Darfur Africa.
You would never hear from them again.
Constructive critisism is fine, just complaining and whining doesnt really do anything
