Gee, Max, you seem more aware of what's going on in America than Americans. But see, Americans like them --good Christian people otherwise-- get their news from Fox and the Christian networks, which are, should I say it, PREDATORY BY NATURE. In other words they live a word of fantasy, in which bad things are not necessarily bad because they announce Armageddon... and that's written in the Bible.
So here I'm in my cage --unable to ride a bike-- because that's the will of God and because the Christians don't give a shit about it. ;)
Of course, many of them do live in Gated Communities, so they are spared the worst of it.
