Too many Americans are just selfish, racist or both:

Enough With the Unseemly Whining About Student Debt Forgiveness!

Leftist Presidential Candidate’s Landslide Win Promises Clean Sweep of Pinochet’s Fascist Legacy

  Ever since the 9-11 attack on the US, people here had this mantra that 9-11 “changed everything.”  It’s a gross overstatement of course.
