    Default Things I like about America

    It's about time I did one of these to keep some of you off my back for a bit.

    As I have said before, the burgers here are the best in the world. That is my most favorite part about America.

    But I also like the wide roads.

    The cheap gas is nice too (but it would be even better if you would use less of it to stop warming the planet - ahem).

    I like the way they pack your bags for you at the grocery store.

    I like the cheap, American beer.

    I like the way you can buy almost anything on the internet (but again the transport of it to my house from California must be heating the planet - so time to stop).

    I like Obama - well done on choosing that one.

    I like liberals. Someone has to.

    I like the way you can tell someone's political persuasion by what they look like, how they wear their hair (and makeup) and how they dress.

    I like that there is not much swearing in the streets.

    I like the way that no one knows how to fight so there is no thuggery.

    I like the Spring here (but it's too short) and the Fall as well (but again too short).

    I like air conditioning.

    I like the cheap shoes you can buy here.

    And that, for now, is about it.

    The more you travel back and forth, the more you will like it and be able to talk about it too.

    Keep on listing. It IS good to start a list now. Later you will be so used to some things you won't even notice it.

    I like the plumbing. Go many places in the world, and you better drink bottled water.

    I like the relative safety I feel when traveling to different cities. When I was in Guatemala, I got chastised for walking a few blocks from the grocery store. I did notice that all the houses had barbed wire on their fences.

    I like the choice in food here. You can get almost any kind, from anywhere. When I was in Belize, everything tasted like tomato sauce.

    Choice of beer too. So many to choose from.

    Carpets, I didn't notice things like carpets and wood chairs so much until I came back from some vacations. You fly back in to the States and it's like Wow! They have carpets on the floors, and real solid feeling chairs to sit in. Not plastic patio chairs or wooden benches without backs to them.
    Some chairs even have padding here.

    Ice cream. That's my list.

    Now... after some thought, and I just finished my icecream cone, I also, like about the USA:

    1. American men
    2. Ernest Hemingway
    3. Benjamin Franklin
    4. Philly and its history
    5. The deep south, love Al. & the people
    6. The oceans and everything in them
    7. Our libraries
    8. Our public educational system and its potential for greatness!
    9. The advanced studies done for cures and treatments for all diseases!
    0. Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream (alternate in a pitch: McDonalds Ice Cream Cone)
    ... and, a big sloppy with everything on it, Chili Dog...from Chili's.
