A letter of apology

Here may be found a letter of apology.

I have a few items to add.

  • I'm sorry we suck up 80% of the world's resources, in exchange for 80% of the money the rest of the world receives.
  • I'm sorry we use those resources to produce more than 80% of the world's goods and services, including life-saving drugs and high-tech equipment.
  • I'm sorry the USA sheds 80% of the blood spilled in wars to free people from their own tyrants.
  • I'm sorry that the USA promotes and advocates such a high standard of conduct. It must emberass the living daylights out of so many countries when their own conduct falls short by such an amount that they don't even claim any interest in following it. I'm sorry we're among the few countries willing to even try to meet such a standard of conduct. I'm sorry that we, being human, fall short the sort of perfection so few even attempt.
  • I'm sorry the USA is such a horrible place that people spend all their resources, up to and including their lives, trying to get here from all those other countries to which this apology is sent.
  • I'm sorry the USA is willing to step forward and deal with bullies that leave the rest of the world trailing yellow liquid wherever they go.
  • I'm sorry the rest of the world, too frightened to express any anger to bullies, turn and call the USA a spoiled brat, and throw a temper tantrum and threaten to hold their breaths until we do what they want.
  • I'm sorry we had to be the first to set up a government conceived in liberty and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.
  • I'm sorry we need to fight in wars to ensure that this government of the people, by the people, for the people shall not perish from this earth.

And to any who are offended by my apology or the one I linked to, I'm sorry you're such a crybaby.

I'm sorry we suck up 80% of the world's resources, in exchange for 80% of the money the rest of the world receives.

(The Third World does not get anything except IMF 'austerity' policies and ruthless exploitation by huge corporations. The bare minimum of help is given to these nations so their people and resources can be squeezed dry)

I'm sorry we use those resources to produce more than 80% of the world's goods and services, including life-saving drugs and high-tech equipment.

(And sell them at rates nobody can afford without going into bankruptcy. Drug companies are making huge profits off of these services and the medical system in America is too expensive to patronize, and often gives slipshod care in return. We are milking the world for tons of $$$ in exchange for these drugs and services so we are not doing anyone any favors)

I'm sorry the USA sheds 80% of the blood spilled in wars to free people from their own tyrants.

(Tyrants we put there with the help of CIA when corporations can exploit their people and resources, and then we go knock the tyrants down when they 'nationalize' these resources and do not do what we want. Saddam was put in by CIA in the 1970's to stop the Communists and Shia' Muslims. Human rights did not mean anything when the USA was turning a profit on Saddam, and only became an issue when he did not do what the US corporations wanted in terms of oil and changing his socialist economy)

I'm sorry that the USA promotes and advocates such a high standard of conduct. It must emberass the living daylights out of so many countries when their own conduct falls short by such an amount that they don't even claim any interest in following it. I'm sorry we're among the few countries willing to even try to meet such a standard of conduct. I'm sorry that we, being human, fall short the sort of perfection so few even attempt.

(America has the highest child poverty and infant mortality rate of any 1rst world nation. America has been responsible for the deaths of 7 million people since WWII, in its imperialistic forays throughout the world: e.g. CIA coup's, military interventions, wars of empire, etc. All done for the wealthy classes. America has the highest percentage of its people in prison of any country on earth. Including Red China. There are severe abuses of people in prisons and mental hospitals and not a few deaths. There is widespread poverty and homelessness. I fail to see any high standards conducted by America)

I'm sorry the USA is such a horrible place that people spend all their resources, up to and including their lives, trying to get here from all those other countries to which this apology is sent.

(They buy into the hype, put out by global propagandists at "Radio Free America" and planted in the world media. I have a neighbor who is a recent immigrant and he is moving to Canada because he cannot afford the medical bills here. I may move there someday too if possible, or Europe. It is true that there are worse places than America, but also better ones. e.g. The standard of living for workers is much higher in France and Germany than it is here, as well as Denmark and Sweden)

I'm sorry the USA is willing to step forward and deal with bullies that leave the rest of the world trailing yellow liquid wherever they go.

(They are trailing that liquid when they see "Uncle Sam's" bloodthirsty war machine coming at them!!)

I'm sorry the rest of the world, too frightened to express any anger to bullies, turn and call the USA a spoiled brat, and throw a temper tantrum and threaten to hold their breaths until we do what they want.

(The USA is the 'spoiled brat,' an adolescent nation that lacks the experience and traditions of Europeans which have endured for millenia. When the USA throws a tantrum, lots of people die, and when the world holds their breath it is out of fear as to what the USA will do next)

I'm sorry we had to be the first to set up a government conceived in liberty and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.

(America as seen by the "Founding Fathers" has long been on the abortion table. Men are not created equal, and only the best and noblest among men should be leaders, which is clearly not the case today. Democracy has always been a sham to put the money people into power. The masses have never ruled, they only have people rule in their name and representative demonocracy is a fraud, as politicians do what the rich want, not what voters want. Have you read "Patriot Act 1 & 2? What sort of America do you think that is? It is more like Stalinism)

I'm sorry we need to fight in wars to ensure that this government of the people, by the people, for the people shall not perish from this earth.
And to any who are offended by my apology or the one I linked to, I'm sorry you're such a crybaby.

(God help us if what you say is true, which means that when the world comes to kick our ass, we will all deserve it. And it will....... It will.... Do you really buy into this stuff? If you do I really feel sorry for you, you must be really scared)
