Anyway, I think best way to treat this one is 'less than serious'…
it was such an obvious wind-up
I'd like to think that and it is the best reply even if she was (and I suspect she may have been) serious.
some of the things do sum up an attitude of some Americans – note, some – the 'if it's good for America it's good for the world syndrome.
With a number of the Millennials I've come across, it isn't about America. It's all about THEM. What they think, want, decide, dislike, and so forth for nor reasons other than they think so. Her postings are relatively shallow, but extend that logic and judgmentalism into acceptable speech, action and political processes, and you have the mess we have today. And they vote.
Since this is the ranting board…
Take a look at the colleges and universities – all for diversity and inclusiveness as long as you AGREE with their positions. These towers of higher learning and education to a great extent have become or are becoming the place where minds are expanded by the educators and students vigorously agreeing on "the position." It's where the pampered entitled weaklings need to have professors dismissed for microaggressions and safe spaces need to be had incase someone LOOKED at you in a way that hurt your self esteem. Or, they may have THOUGHT of looking at you in that abusive manner. The opinions and values of all are valued and respected, so there are organizations that support just about every hyphenated group, every subdivision you can think of so (sarcasm for the point of making a point) you have groups dedicated to the plight of and support for red haired but balding left handed, height challenged, weight enhanced, Gaia worshipping omnisexual, ambidextrous (it means they run with BOTH legs) krill saving tree hugging lemmings…just not conservatives. Can't even stand to have well known and well spoken leaders from various fields of politics, thought art, science, philosophy even speak at their campuses. God forbid that their be an alternative view, a counter thought, a counterpoint or a chance for objective thinking.
They are so self absorbed and so disconnected from the real world that had they been told that the masses were starving (despite food stamps) they'd likely reply "Well, let them eat cake."
I've been to England several times and found all the people I encountered on the streets of London and thereabouts to be a very pleasant, helpful and and unexpectedly diverse population (even that I was robbed on the "tube").
I agree, and always try to be one of the ones assigned for the projects over there. I've had several. I wasn't robbed in the tube though.
Well, I was pickpocketed if that counts.
In 1998, I was hit by one of those large black cabs you see everywhere – you know, right behind all of those red busses.
Oh and on a different trip my luggage was broken in to before it came out at Heathrow. Stole among other things, my shoes. Ever try to buy 11 1/2 EEEEE shoes in a shop? Can't be done. Spent the week at meetings in coat and tie and running shoes.
In a different year, my CC was stolen at an ATM by some VERY slick con artists working as a team.
And in 2005 I was there for the tube bombings. There, as "in London" not there as "in the tube."
What does it all mean? Check with me before you go to London…if I'm scheduled to go, you might consider it a bad time…or, you might prefer to go then because just like trainwrecks and shark attacks, if someone else is having the problem, then it is far less likely that you will concurrently.
And I think I've proven that I've clearly passed the "Been there…done that…got the tee shirt" test for London!
And I'd leave for there later today, given the opportunity.
"Red buses everywhere". The American who wrote this clearly has never tried to catch one.
My experience has been quite different. I typically have seen and have pictures of several in a row. All going somewhere other than where you need to go, but no shortage of them! 8)
