obscenely large space-hogging automobiles.

Mass shootings every week. Although the most recent one only about five or six people were killed this time. Must have been a slow day.

Gun culture.

Obesity.

The Bible Belt.

Geniuses going around with signs saying how god hates gay people.

Virtually everyone suffering from stress, anxiety, depression, but there so much stigma many people don't get the help they need.

Talking very loudly.

Refusing to believe in science or technology, but firmly that demons and ghosts and other stuff from the Middle Ages

All their money being green. Why is it only one color? Why is it that color? And what's with an Egyptian pyramid on an American bill? And what's with that creepy eye??

The Statue of Liberty, although it was really built by French people.

Huge, oversized portions of food, which must be really shocking to people from countries where they're lucky to get any food.

Overpaid celebrities with no skill or talent. Some celebs did have skill and talent at one time maybe, but Hollywood doesn't care anymore.

Reality TV.

Intelligence, skill, and creativity not being valued. The only thing people caring about that you're good at is organized sports, in which the payers are also highly overpaid. Although I think in Canada it's not much better.

Doctors being cold and showing any lack of caring or compassion to patients and basically treating them like customers at a store. Not to mention having to pay insane amounts of money for health care.

Really stupid and awful commercials. It doesn't matter how "cute" you make a human toe look by drawing a little face on it and giving it a kickboxing helmet and gloves, toenail fungus is ugly and gross!

Racist cops and police brutality.

Importing products to Canada that display labels saying "proudly made in the USA". I would rather buy something made in China.

Hot dogs and Hamburgers being considered "American" food, even though they were originally created in other countries. Same goes for apple pie.

That story where a young George Washington chopped down his father's cherry tree, and his father forgiving him because he didn't lie about it. Things sure have changed since George was a kid.

The common misconception that George Washington had false teeth made of wood. They were actually made of things like elephant and hippo ivory, and teeth pulled from his slaves.

Uncle Sam

Spending tons of money on war, while ignoring people living in poverty in their country and even blaming them for their situation.

Over the top political correctness and censorship.

The Boston Christmas Tree. It's a tree that actually gets donated from Nova Scotia every year to Boston for their tree-lighting party every year, as way of showing thanks for people in Boston helping the survivors of the Halifax Explosion by sending blankets and other supplies. It was nice that they actually did that, but not long ago they decided the Boston Christmas Tree should be called a "Holiday" tree, and the farmer who donated it that year said he'd rather put the tree into the wood chipper than hear it being called that.


Grim, dark, fear-mongering attack ads during the elections. Last year while visiting my parents I told my mother I had seen an ad opposing Donald Trump that left me unsettled and had trouble sleeping the night before. She told me not to worry, he would never be elected...
