Mr American
« on: March 02, 2009, 09:06:34 PM »
A Russian arrives in New York City as a new immigrant to the United States . He stops the first person he sees walking down the street and says, "Thank you Mr. American for letting me into this country, giving me housing, food stamps, free medical care, and a free education!"
The passerby says, "You are mistaken, I am a Mexican."

The man goes on and encounters another passerby. "Thank you for having such a beautiful country here in America ."
The person says, "I not American, I Vietnamese."

The new arrival walks farther, and the next person he sees he stops, shakes his hand, and says,"Thank you for wonderful America !"   

That person puts up his hand and says, "I am from Middle East .  I am
not American."

He finally sees a nice lady and asks, "Are you an American?"
She says, "No, I am from Africa ."   

Puzzled, he asks her, "Where are all the Americans?"
The African lady checks her watch and says, "Probably at work."

.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

It's a shame but it true. :(
