+1 NYC = the least American place in America
literally only immigrants
Real Americans live in Manhattan and work at some prestigious jobs
I'm literally a minority in my school lol only black people and immigrants who don't want to assimilate
I was talking about New York City
Yeah I know there are many hard working people who move here to reach something good
but the thing is that you can't see them
they are either studying or working and you cannot say anything bad about them
can confirm 3rd world country, if not baiting, then 2nd world.
Long Island Railway runs slower than vehicles.
NYC Metro stinks. As well as all unknown liquid (sorry team liquid) on the street, smells like urine.
JFK out-dated and over-crowded.
I know this country is strong in almost every aspect (or I won't be here at all) but at least give me a good impression when I'm walking on the street.
1) NYC is extremely expensive.
2) Its public transport especially the subway is infamously and horrendously bad.
3) NYC has been notoriously corrupt along with the entire state of NY for decades.
4) Terrible mayors for years.
5) hundreds of thousands of allegations of NYPD misconduct.
6) Useless and corrupt politicians.
7) Decades of gang violence from Italian mafia to now Latino gangs like MS-13.
How does your points (3 to 7) even affect the average guy? I am ignorant and live off my parents so I may have no conception of these things.
What about the 10+ shithole states like Arkansas, Alabama etc surely its better to live in NY?
First world country my ass.. 1 out of 5 Americans have a medical debt. One hospital charges 4k for giving birth, where the other charges 70k. Maybe now, they'll understand why most European countries have high taxes and mandatory health insurance.
ok but my dad always says he hates the EU taxes, for example the UK, if you make £50,001 to £150,00 you gotta pay 40% income tax, As far as I can understand 20%, 40% is just a thievery. And it appeals to almost every EU country.
It always depends what happens with your taxmoney. It only sucks, because a big part of this money is spend retarded. Overall taxes are a good thing and necessary. We just have corrupt shit governments who spend it like idiots.
Unfortunately not all money is spent well, but that's due to people in control. Vote if you want to see other people in control. I pay 40% in the Netherlands and I happily do. What do I get in return? Great infrastructure, great healthcare, housing, a social safety net for people who can't get by on their own and much more. Peace of mind is basically what you're getting.
It is not really about the hospitals, it is about the virus being allowed to run rampant - no different than what is seen in Italy and Spain. Had Trump and his fools taken things serious they could have prevented the chaos and US death toll will have been much lower.
Not true, ever studied American History? Ever heard of the Guilded Age? USA was majority white before the 1960s but don't act like the USA has gotten worse or more third world, it was always this way, always hard on poor workers
ngl, i found america to be a pretty great place. Able to meet many very talented people and you are able to make great connections, However, america imo is no longer the country it uysed to be. where everyone was after the "american dream". I feel like the "american dream" can be more easily attained in canada now.
But america is home to some of the smartest and most successful people, but also home to the exact opposite.
