Nice park, isn't it?
Hi guys, since my parents have been there 2 years ago, here are my reasons on why I would love to go to New York!

Diversity

The city is famous for diversity of different races, and this promotes tourism and I truly appreciate that. I also have a godmother who is staying there and would love to pay her a visit soon!

Broadway Musicals

It is the home of famous Broadway Musicals, I have seen 4 so far. I'm dying to see other musicals like Miss Saigon and Wicked just to same a few!

Shop Till You Drop

I am gradually love to shop and I hope that the stores have more choices than in Malaysia, another reason to be appreciative!

Nature Lover

There is also a famous park in which I would love to walk, it brings me joy and happiness when I'm down.

The American Dream

I love the United States and its culture, I hope to bring my friends there soon too.

Los Angeles!
Hi guys, my name is Dee and I come from Malaysia, this is my very first article about this wonderful country. What I am going to write are some of the things I love about the US and which part that I would love to visit!

Los Angeles

I love this city as it is very clean, and it is full of diversity. I had been there 15 years ago before 9/11, many of the people are friendly and I hope to go there again after the general elections there.

New York City

I would love to go to New York as I have a godmother staying there. It is famous for Broadway Musicals and my favourites are The Lion King and Wicked, in which I have longed to see them!

Orlando

I had been there since young and went to Walt Disney World, if I ever go there again. The city will really brings back childhood memories!

Miami

Miami reminds me of Penang Island here in Malaysia, because it's by the beach side. I will love this city the most compare to the other cities that I had listed down here, because it's peaceful!

THIS IS VERY URGENT AND NOT A JOKE! ALSO DON'T GOOF OFF!!!!

I really mean it! What would you be able to do if SOPA/TPP censors the internet? What would you be able to do if writing fanfics and drawing fanarts become illegal? What would you do if it's illegal to do a cover of your favorite song on YouTube? What would you do if downloading things from the internet (music, movies, TV episodes, etc) became illegal? What would you do if SOPA/TPP wins the war and takes away internet freedom? Net Neutrality is already dead so far, we can't risk the freedom of internet from getting killed by SOPA/TPP!


SOPA may have been stopped, but large companies with many copyrights are trying to re-institute portions of it under other names and policies. This attempt to limit protected speech in the name of copyright is unacceptable, and must be resisted.

Hearst Castle in California
I was browsing the internet recently, and at the bottom of my search result page were a few links. One of them said "American castles", I was interested and clicked. I found an article, on CNN, that was supposed to be about seven grand castles in the US. I usually tend to avoid comment sections, as they tend to be full of hate and general stupidity---and especially on something like CNN, but I decided to stroll through the comments.

I actually regretted doing this. There honestly wasn't a positive comment in sight. Many comments (if not all) said repeatedly "they're not castles!". Well, yeah, of course they aren't fortified castles. These were mansions and estates that were pretty to look at and visit. But there was hostility, too. People called them "silly", "too much work", "blowing money", and, of course, "not real castles". Every comment was like this. Why do people believe that the US has an obsession with royalty? I don't see any kings or queens, actual fortified castles, or areas that are made sure to look Medieval. The thing is, we are all going to die at some point. But the world doesn't have to be a blank slate without joy or happiness. If you have the...

In the late 70s’ I had my dream holiday, me and John Wood booked a trip to America. We flew Freddie Laker (the innovator in cheap flights 1976-1982) to JFK New York where we stayed at the Y.M.C.A. In spite of Johns build he was somewhat scared in the city. We were both forever looking up at the huge skyscrapers and more than once I had to grab his arm as he stepped off the pavement without looking at the walk, don’t walk signs. We did all the tourist sites, the Empire State Building, The Chrysler building, Central park, Statue of liberty, Macys, we walked block after block, we had huge breakfasts of pancakes with maple syrup, eggs sunny side up, bacon and fried slice, and of all the people we met they all said the same thing “You British?” as soon as we ordered a meal. In New York we found a number of Irish bars selling Budweiser, Millers’ light and various whiskies. One night a crowd of American footballers’ came in and sat next to us, we soon got them singing British songs and played the crackle, crackle, crackle song to the tune of “it’s a long way to tipperary” soaking two big footballers in beer. We were lucky to get out alive but the yanks took it all in...

Continuing the car chase, we see Dan driving a somewhat damaged Buick Special away from the cops that are following him. I got bored writing like "ohqiegs" Said 03j0wti. So I'm writing like this from now on

copper 2: He's not my boyfriend, just my partner.
copper 1: But I do think you're a sexy bitch.
Dan: *heads for Belleville*
copper 1: Attention, all units suspect is on the highway toward Belleville. He's driving a 1961 Buick Special, red in color he must be stopped at all costs.

One of the copper's '61 Impala
They did it, Dan & his team stole all the cars they needed, but there was one problem. One of the cars they stole was a Buick Special, and Terence made Dan return it for not being insured. Kenny went Pearl Harbor on Dan, and got beat up badly. Not only that, but he quit the team, and called the cops. So Fuck Kenny, let's continue with the story. Dan knew where he could find another Buick, which was insured. It was right next to the Gateway arch, but Dan didn't know that the police were watching him, thanks to someone that called for them. It was two police officers, one was a girl, and they were in a new Impala. Dan got in the buick, and when he stole it, the cops were after him. "Good luck Dan." Percy said, he was in another car not getting involved in the chase. Dan had to keep driving until he lost the cops, and they just hit his car. Dan made a right turn, and more cops were getting involved. He drove on the sidewalk for a while with many angry people telling him to watch where he was driving. Then he drove into a park, as more cop cars arrived, two of them blocked the exit so he couldn't get out. The officer driving the Impala got out, and pointed his gun Dan, "Get your...

The tow truck
The next day was going great. They were stealing all the cars that they needed until, "We got a problem with the E Type." Kenny said. "What?" Dan angrily asked. "I overheard the police saying that they found out the serial numbers were changed." "Then we only have one option." "No Dan, we are not crushing that car!" Kenny shouted. "We have to! It's our only option." And with that, Dan left.

He stole a tow truck, and went to where the E type was. While putting the E type on the truck, a police car stopped by the dealership. The cop had a dog with him, and when he got out of his car, the dog was barking. What did Dan do? He pushed the cop car out of his way, and continued toward the scrapyard. The officer was still chasing him, until Dan blocked him off, making him hit another car. After that was over, Dan arrived at the scrapyard. He took the E type off the truck, and watched a crane grab it. The once, scratchless car, was getting wrecked, and was dropped in a crusher, split into a million tiny peices that would be made into something else.

The Buick Special
Dan called the three of his friends that were with him at the garage. They were now at the airport, about to steal two cadillacs, and a rolls royce when suddenly, "There it is." Dan whispered to Terence. One of the cars they had to steal was a Buick Special. Dan was walking toward it, and opened the door when suddenly, "Hey. What are you doing?" An old black man asked angrily. Dan apologized, and left "Wrong car." He said to the others. "That special we need is at another place." Percy told him. He showed Dan the adress, and the four continued stealing the first three cars.

Later that day, which became night a drunk man was watching T.V with his wife, "Bill take the dog out." She said. "Why me?" he asked, "Because I said so!" She replied. "Goddamn bitch," Bill mumbled, as he put the leash on his dog's collar, and took him out for a walk. Just when he got out of his front door however, he saw a car roll down his driveway. It was a brand new Buick Special, "HEY! Where are you going with my car?!" Bill shouted. The Buick took off, when Bill quickly got the dog back inside, and took off in a different car. He chased his other car, which was stolen by Dan BTW, and the two...

A Norfolk & Western GP9
Based off of the original Gone In 60 Seconds, sort of...

Welcome to St. Louis in the year 1961. Our main character is now driving his Lincoln Continental toward a railroad crossing, to find out how a train got derailed. "Morning Sarge" He said as he climbed out of his car. The workers of the railroad were not sure who this guy was, so he told them, "I'm Daniel Karr, St. Louis police department. I'm here to investigate what happened." One of the workers told him to go check on the engineer, he was sitting on the train tracks looking at his engine, a Norfolk & Western GP9. It was laying on it's side. "Are you the engineer?" Dan asked. "Oh yes I am." "What can you tell me about the derailment?" All the engineer knew was that it was caused by some missing rail spikes, so nothing was holding the track in place. After that, it was all over.

A few hours later Dan bought a wrecked Jaguar E Type, and towed it to a workshop where three of his friends were waiting. They were Terence Alton, Percy Mitchell, and Kenny Donatelli. The four of them soon got to work cutting the car in half, and taking out it's serial number. They were going to switch that with the...

Natural gas is cheap cuz there's too much on the market

Petroleum wannabes have borrowed loads o' cash
to get a piece of that nasty Klondike

In North Dakota, they burn off $100 Million worth each year
just plain wasted in the air and the reason is,

everybody knows the necessary pipeline to move it around
would never remake the money it took to build


The promotion of Fracking made promises of
endless buried treasures but they failed to mention

Shale pockets don't last long
You gotta keep drilling wells every 2 miles

So now you start to understand
who really makes the serious doe in Gasland :

- Hole Diggers
- Toxic Mix Solvent Makers
- Loan Bankers

What if Cheney's Halliburton and all the guys at the Club
asked for a bailout in 4 years time

That would be so American-like

You MUST read this:

... Meanwhile at home,
All individual dignity and power
Engulfed in Courts, Committees, Institutions,
Associations and Societies
A vain, speech-mouthing speech-reporting Guild,
One Benefit-Club for mutual flattery
We have drunk up, demure as at a grace,
Pollutions from the brimming cup of wealth;
Comptemptous of all honourable rule,
Yet batering freedom and the poor man's life,
For gold, as at a market! The sweet words
Of Christian promise, words that even yet
Might stem destruction, were they wisely preached,
Are muttered o'er by men, whose tones proclaim
How flat and wearisome they feel their trade:
Rank scoffers some, but most too indolent
To deem them falsehoods or to know their truth.
Oh! Blasphemous! The Book of Life is made
A superstitious instrument...
The very name of God
Sounds like a juggler's charm:and bold with joy..,

I can only take so much bantering and bickering and blaming this person and blaming that person. There is plenty of blame to go around if it goes to the right person. I am appalled In America, and the campaigning that the " Republican Hopefuls" are doing. How far and how low will someone go is the only question left unanswered. I am not proud of America. There I said it. I had higher hopes for my future kids and my own generation. This is the year 2011. We have 4 months until 2012 and there are still people that are racial bigots and religious zealots forcing their views on the people of the United States of America. WE SHOULD NOT be divided because of color, those days are way over. If you judge a person on the color of their skin have SHALLOW tattooed to your forehead. Same with religion. Christianity is not the Almighty religion. Republicans pride themselves on " We need to go by the constitution". We'll then righties do as you preach. The constitution says freedom to practice whatever religion you wish, or no religion at all. The Civil rights movement accomplished by Lincoln and finished by Martin Luther King should have stopped the racial hatred. Who cares if someone is white,...

don't you hate it when you're at a game or at school, and everyone's doing the pledge of alledgiance, but one person doesn't stand up or put their hand over their heart?
especially when they're excuse is 'that's what old people do' or 'i'm too lazy'.
yeah, thanks for being so patriotic, pal.
some people say that they are some other religion, so they don't do it, but it's not like you have to say the line with 'god' in it. you're still in this country and you're still reaping the benefits, and just because you have a different belief than our founding fathers doesn't mean you don't say the pledge. I don't know where you come from, or why you're here, but honestly, in most cases, America's probably better than wherever you're from if you're not from here, so the least you can do it respect it.
or you could always go back home.
Teenagers apparently now think it's 'uncool' to stand up and show some respect.
As a teenager myself, i think those people are rather disgusting.

Never have I hated a church, never, although I am atheist, let me say that I tolerate decent religious groups when they don't act like wild animals. I'm talking about Westboro Baptist Church, a normal-looking church along the gentle slopes of the hills and grasses of Kansas, looks quaint doesn't it? Well, it's what the members of this church do that angers me, they justify terrorism as a good thing in their system, that "god hates the United States". My first thought was: How could something that is all-loving, forgiving, non-judgemental, and good hate a country? Sure, there's homosexuals, that's okay, talk about how bad they are for all we care, it's a free country, but then they start to justify it by tromping onto military funerals and desecrating a lost life by saying how "god killed this man because of gay people" or "Jews" or even "Muslims" and they wish hatred against the united states. These guys are the terrorists that we must monitor, they are very threatful to the united states, don't blame their children, they didn't know better. You can say your hatred towards gays, that's fine, but NEVER bring out death threats or "wrath of god" shit. It's ridiculous how much the...

Some of the Republicans in the Capitol right now don't know they are digging their party a grave. That may sound cynical but sometimes the truth is. Speaking of the truth, its how should I say it. Hard to come by these days. You know why Republicans got control of the House last November? Impulsiveness and fickle minded people. People can be like sheep...they see others moving in the same direction, they think they have to do the same as everyone else. People should think for themselves. God gave us each a mind and free will. Brain-washed people are the worst kind of people. Pretty soon they don't know what they are saying or doing. Take the Westboro Baptist church. Saying that " FAGS GO TO HELL, GOD DOESN'T LOVE FAGGETS". If you are a true Christian..you don't talk like that. You don't judge. And I don't care if you are the Pope of Rome, no one has the right to tell someone else " God doesn't love you- or- Your Going to hell. Anyway- as always I get off topic. My main message is that when these few far-right Republicans use slogans like " Take Back our Country" and " Stop Big Budget Spending" I cant help but laugh. Who exactly are they taking the country back from? They spent...

I am a 21 yr. old and I cant take listening to the this ill country we live in with such bigotry and hate from the likes of some Racist group called " The TEA PARTY". The are in no way pro-American, pro-Christian, and do not represent any of our beliefs. The STATE of OUR NATION is Poisonous. It has gotten worse and worse since 2001 when Bush used fear-mongering and divided us as a nation. Now there is nothing but hate, left and right and everywhere you look. Hypocrisy, Bigotry, and Racism are not things that would should look up to when electing and following leaders in the Senate. Whether you are liberal or not, is not the point. CHANGE is inevitable people, Gays and Lesbians are human, Woman have rights to their own bodies, not everyone in America is going to be Catholic and white...people can be Wicca, Atheist, Muslim, Hindu, Buddhist, etc. FREEDOM to worship, Freedom of CHOICE... and yes we do have freedom of speech but Vitriolic hate speech is NOT something we need in America. IF we continue down this road we will have another civil war on our hands. WE will be in the streets fighting amongst ourselves. And being civil and not wanting war is not Socialism, its human.
