Vladimir Putin Calls US a 'Parasite' on World Economy - FoxNews.com Strong words, but as an American I have to agree, let me explain. As long as America has more criminals than what the legal system can handle then the situation is just going to get worse, especially since people are bought off to keep quite. The funny thing is that the Chinese are ok with it, they're investing more than ever in the American economy because they've gotten a taste of corrupt money and they love it. They should give Vladimir a medal for having the guts to speak the truth, the U.S. government is run by the ultimate mob ring and they're are told what to do by people in the pharmaceutical trade, oil companies, and wall street which are just a few, they're so many I could eat dinner and finish eating while I still list all the corrupt big fat cats in america who buy their way through politics. They, the mob ring are the U.S. congressmen, the house, and so on, you get the idea, it's all corrupt. Even the president can't believe how corrupt the U.S. is, he got the shit end of the stick if you ask me. Not only should Obama go down in history as the first African American president but the first president actualy willing to do something about it and yet he can't because if he doesn't play by the rules he won't be re-elected. Our country is so corrupt it's not even funny anymore, the fat cats get rich, pass it on to the democrats and republicans so they can go on with their campaigns that are targeted towards treating the american citizen like an idiot. It's the republicans fault, no it's the democrats fault, they have the American public pre-occupied with who's to blame as business as usual goes on. Sadly the majority of Americans who can actually do something don't care because they get rich off the fat and are not going to go against the current system because they know it's suicide to do so. If you want to manipulate someone just give them alot of money and threaten to take it away, it's the American way don't you know. I'm disgusted with my country; maybe that makes me a real patriot, maybe I'm just tired of knowing the truth and yet nothing changes. You figure it out.
