But not enough money to help people with cancer????? As an Euro and MMA fan, it baffles me everytime i come check what's up with the UG i find myself at least a person having to come beg for help fighting cancer whether for themselves or others. The same country who spends billions of dollars on wars, why not help people for free or have affordable prices? Too expensive? So no reason to owe trillions of dollars to China, right? Wait... Jesus people, use your vote, help yourselves!

And God Bless people fighting cancer. They really need help. Until someone fixes the health care.

You should run our country then...

Americans have no voice, no matter what we vote for, everyone loses. Politicians are there to line their pockets by any means necessary and make it look like they're actually trying to help the people. They don't give a shit about the people and don't do anything. 

The legislators ignore the populace and even when they get voted out, the next dickbag does the same exact thing.

Only way that anything will change over here is a revolution, and a president who doesn't go and start off any new wars.

Because America is the apex of competition and cut throat capitalism. If you are strong and smart, you will survive and enjoy it, if you're weak or ill, you get discarded and left to die.

FrateCart - I get the same thought everytime is a cancer thread is posted here. It's disgusting that people have to Ask for money for a thing like that. Especially since so much seems to be wasted judging by the military and everything.

Ive probably typed out and deleted 10 messages in those thread because I dont want to turn it into a random discussion out of respect since cancer obviously is horrible.

I do think there should be a special subforum for charity threads. And I mean that in a nice way. The people who are actually donating would probably enter a subforum like that anyway.

There is a Russian proverb: "Living is expensive, life is cheap."

It's because America's medical cost are so outrageous. Yes we have the best health care, if you an afford it. Which 99% of America can't.

A lot of money goes to the military and wars.

Greed and corruption, same things as Europe, minus the military expenditure.

For example, $7 billion dollars worth of military equipment, hardly used btw, is being wrecked in Afghanistan, evidently too costly to bring back.

V. much agree OP. Sometimes it feels like there are a dozen 'person sick, need help' begging-for-money-threads going on. Which really makes me appreciate so much that I just don't have to worry about that. Especially when you have an extreme lifestyle and trane UFC.

The US taxpayer has funded the majority of cancer research ever to take place.

The freakiest part about it is that most Americans think that it's your fault if you're broke from medical bills and that you should feel guilty to ask for help when you have cancer.

Most Americans would shit themselves if they saw how much better other Western Countries have it with just Health Care alone.

Even freakier is how many Americans will read those previous two sentences and come back with the rebuttal, "Yeah, but they pay more taxes in those socialist countries, blah, blah, blah...." and then explain to you that a universal, affordable health-care system is not in their own fucking interest and that they are fine with the potentiality of having to get thrown into the street because "it's a dog eat dog reality."

And, if you question that half of your federal tax money is going to the war machine, then, well, "you're not supporting the troops, faggot!"

America is gnarly.

Don't get me wrong I love brazil you know how we are about our country but something a lot of Americans seem take for granted is even though America is not perfect is still the beacon of hope and opportunity if not the world at least the American continent. And I just hope in the future brazil can learn from the mistakes America is doing and grown to be a successfully country where it people are happy . Sadly we just found out we have a lot of oil so I'm scared America might try to "liberated us"

America is as perfect as a country can get. If you don't live in America, you are nothing. If you are over 25 and still haven't made it to America you are a failure at life.

Its easy for non-Americans to claim Americans dont take care of their sick when their medical applications to heal people involve witch doctors using leeches on a patient laying on a dirt floor instead of million dollar pieces of technology.
