so the Heroin addict recognizes his addiction! Yes, we do cause a big ripple with our SUVs and excessively consumerist culture! Of course, we export our culture to the rest of the world, and now they all want it too! Damn! America invades the world! Not with tanks, ships and planes, but with that bilge that passes for contemporary American culture. Wow! Guess were gonna have to kick our own habit and get the rest of the world to do it at the same time. Of course, don't expect me to support anyone else's babies if they're stupid enough to have more than they can support themselves.....
So, how are we going to get the rest of the world to stop wanting/trying to and being like US? never mind the flood of babies....
One billion Chinese, One Billion Indians, four hundred million Pakistanis, Nigerians, three hundred million Indonesians, and they all want cars, paved roads, playstation twos and big welfare programs for the culturally decrepit?
