The 'older Chinese' were notorious for saving 40% or more of their salaries. They did what was needed to just get by, no frills of any kind, sometime only having meat once a week. I admire them for their frugality. The later generations realized that they CAN have a better, more comfortable life - however SOME have gone overboard and milked the savings of their elders dry which is callous and shameful.

There was a time when Usanian culture...
Nostalgia?
Paradies lost?
No, not cynicism from Cestmoi, but a sympathetic sentiment on what could have had been but was still-born. Again I am surprised by your occasional bouts of insights.
Na ja, wie dem auch sei..

I really don't care what you or others think.

Your opinion has been corrupted by politics, by the Bush regime, etc.

But it has left you with an unrealistic portrayal of american people.

We have not been represented well by our politicians.  But at least we elected the opposite of Bush.

It's been almost 4 years since Bush has been out of office and you still have been unable to see the change.

But again, I could care less what you think.

Me too!  I supported myself and my three children while going through college.
I worked hard to make something out of myself - went through summers with no hot water.  

No free ride for me and I have zero credit card debt.

Since 'Usanians' don't exist, I have to agree with you.
