I think Dumbledork covered most major points there...

The election system


The biggest issue is really that it is a system designed for the 18th century, with various more or less good or bad additions slapped on ever since. Calling it obsolete is just the beginning. Especially when you then look at how much shenanigans are used to tilt it.
Election district borders remaking for one or the other party´s preference, the insane lengths some places sometimes go to to keep people from registering(seriously, this is just so beyond bad that it´s tragic), ballot boxes disappearing or messed with is a frequent event, electronic voting is magnitudes worse and somehow everyone just ignores that the people responsible for most of those machines are connected to one party, just because they changed the name of the company...
And on and on...

Vote early, vote often!

The possibility for every idiot to legally buy a gun


The really absurd part about this, is that there´s so many exploits and legal holes, that even if it really would NOT be legal, it´s still perfectly realistic for most people to "legally" buy firearms. As long as you have money or the right contacts, making it "legal" is rarely a problem.


The general lack of education in the population. I don't say that the Americans are stupid


No need for stupidity when people are fed anything from "questionable interpretations" to outright bullshit.

It's shocking that America is the country with the best as well the worst schools in the world.


Yeah, same as with healthcare. USA has the best and the worst, but their average is NOT something you want.


The disturbing, exaggerated patriotism and American supremacy desire.


Megalomania is not an unusual disease in empires.


The contrast between violence and sex. There's no problem with showing the most violent shit on TV, but even just showing a nipple, even less a nude boob is scandalous. Are the American really that insecure in their own sexuality.


Tend to be very absurd yes.

It shouldn't be surprising, really. The American populace is worse than a science experiment. No matter where you look, in every conceivable way that something can affect us physically or mentally, either directly or indirectly, there's something odd, questionable, stupid and insidious at work compared to other relevant countries.

Mida Love. This is more to make people aware of it than a recommendation. It looks like it could get rather naughty, so there's no telling if I'll stick with it or not.

I poked at it several years back, but it didn't keep my attention at the time and I never got back around to it.

Well I'll have another two months before I can read anymore. I'm caught up and the chapters seem to be released every three month.

It is. They released another chapter already, but I don't have hopes to see another one for a bit.

Mr. Clice. A special agent from Japan gets his brain transplanted into the body of a young woman so the cost of training him into an agent isn't wasted. It uses one of the older styles of manga.

That's actually a very old Manga, I'm glad someone's finally translating it.
