Comments: Can they do that?

"USofA citizens will do just about anything except inconvenience themselves or do without something they want for more than just a short time." Rather contemptuous of your fellow citizens, aren't you?

Sometimes, yes. There are a lot of things I think people would make sacrifices for, but it depends on what they're being asked to sacrifice.

Anyhow, remember that I'm a USofA citizen myself. When I make those kinds or remarks, I am not exempting myself from my own disdain. Nothing I've learned about the potentially damaging practices of Starbucks, for instance, has yet driven me to give up my morning Americano.
