           American Culture 101
                 Remember?
• American culture has gone through changes in
  the past three decades; remember when a blackberry
 was a mere summer fruit? That green was a color, and
 reality TV was that one show sandwiched between
 music videos on MTV?
• Humongous political and social upheavals
  that roiled our world in the past decades killing
 American men and women while exploiting the
 American economy by foreign powers.
• However, there has been ongoing gradual
  lifestyle changes that you don't always notice when
 they're happening — kind of like watching a child
 grow older. Here's an alphabetical look at a few of the
 things that changed American lives since the
                       millennium---
 beginning of the last American Culture 101
         American Culture:
• American Culture comes from the words
  American and the Latin word "colere", meaning
  to build on, to cultivate, to foster.
• American Culture actually defines social
  structure, decision-making practices, and
  communication styles but may not always be a
  set of accepted behavior patterns, values,
  assumptions, and shared common experiences.
• American Culture may not always dictate
  healthy behavior, etiquette, and protocol and
  may be something to be unlearned-because it
  impacts everyone negatively, and influences
  psychosocial wellbeing.

  forced to be aired during prime time on T.V.

  restaurant patrons in the major cities of the
  U.S.A.?
                   American Culture 101
              Social-nets:

  flatter, making some ordinary living

  male sex perverts preying upon men in business,
  schools, neighborhoods, and churches.

  Hollywood’s influence to glamorize the violation
  of mores that officials now must bring about
  harsh new laws to protect the heterosexual
  health ethic and psychosocial health.
                    American Culture 101
             Going Green:

  or Madcow disease, New York Times or
  Olympics, Poetry, Quotations, Ralph Nader or
  Stock quotes, Travel or U.S. Post Offices,
  vacations or wallpaper, or Yellow pages.
• Just Google it.
                    American Culture 101
                    GPS:
• As if, it is God talking to us, telling us we
  can't get lost anymore — or at least it's
  pretty hard to.
• The ubiquitous GPS systems whether in
  cell phones, mounted in cars and R.V.
  motorhomes, or the backpack of hikers
  are the wave of the future.
• But you'd better type in your location
  carefully: One couple made a 400-mile
  mistake this year by typing "Carpi"
  rather than "Capri."

Europeans, and white Russians respectfully-as
these illegal migrants ‘steal’ away ‘singles’
from the American culture by trying to
“intermarry” into citizenships.

anchor baby racketeers and illegal job stealers

  time to rest.    American Culture 101
                    Lesbos:
• Lesbian-woman homosexia disease is a
 serious biopsychosocial illness that may last for
 a lifetime for these government protected females, but..
• ..don’t forget that there are lifetime of
 treatment options for these brain-washed sick-minded
 female sex-perverts.
• Some say, it is the Hollywood homosexual
 community with their money, deviancy, and
 networking who have made an extra effort to
 glamorize homosexuality liken to robbing banks, or
 murdering people on T.V., to destroy the social mores
 of the one- husband-one-wife-nuclear family with little
 defense for any laws protecting the heterosexual health
 ethic.

• Liberty is a state of mind that leads to the
  political philosophy in which an individual has the
  right to act according to his or her own free will,
  because..

  a right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness --
  and a responsibility to think, speak and act on that
  behalf, however..
• ..a disturbing fact is that such political changes
