Needless wastefulness.

This is one issue I don't believe in. There IS no water crisis. We don't use it up. It goes right back into oceans after being sterilized. The countries that don't have water really have a lack of an irrigation system or filteration. Basically, a lack of infrastructure.

As I was born in one such country, I know of this firsthand, and I feel no sympathy. It is not hard to build infrastructure. Everyone just has to quit being a b and do something for everyone for a change.

Its not like undeveloped countries are inherently bad at infrastructure. You have to do that stuff on your own. America believes its the world's savior. Its not.
We should mind our own business. We have enough problems, like a multi-trillion dollar national debt...
Which Obama has the perfect plan to fix: raise the debt celing.
*Oh my god I obrrowed all this money, how will I pay back? Borrow more of course*

Yeah that'll solve it...
Exactly. Another point of Obamas crappy presidency.


Anyways...yes we have enough to worry about? But we should think about others.

Its their effing problem! They want to have a revolution, they can do so. Americans rebelled at a few extra taxes, those countries can rebel if they want to.

Don't use communism as a synonym for terrible, you're just falling for propaganda. Communism was great in theory, but didn't work out because of some inherent flaws.

And many such countries, including India, the problem lies not in totalitarian government, for india is democratic, but in a terribly Corrupt government.

Communism just doesn't work... I don't see why you like it.
So you believe in isolationism, Sagar?

Not totally, I mean we need to trade. But isolationism on wars and political matters, yes.

GOD PEOPLE! WHY MUST EVERYTHING BE ABOUT POLITICS NOW?!
Sorry. Outburst of stuff.
We, even in KP, are becoming divided. We're practically just repeating what our parents say. Leia, you (for example) would have different views of politics if you grew up with my parents. I would have different views if I grew up with yours. Let's face it, we believe everything our parents believe (well, mostly. To some extent)!
So let's get back to water.
America doesn't necessarily waste water, it just takes it for granted. Sagar's right, it is just recycled. But we really need to APPRECIATE our water.

I agree with EmmaR....
Sagar, isolationism is fine. It's a good idea. But when it comes to helping others, I think we should pitch in.
For example: The earthquake in Japan. We should forget about politics and just help.
