Why so many crazies in the U.S.A? This number is partly the reason: 330,000,000 people in U.S.A.

I wrote a response to the following post on stuff getting stuck in people's rectums.


I want discuss this again because it is that number that partly answers the question people ask, "Why so many crazies in the U.S.A.? But that number raises more questions that need to be answered. I wish I knew..


The only qualification to be a citizen, is to be born here..nothing else...and millions are here that are legal and illegals, who were not born here....so what?............well all types...of people here:

..people who read a lot
..people who never read.
..people who watch TV a lot
..people who eat a lot
..people who eat very little.
..people who steal
..people who do not steal.
..people who vote.
..people who do not vote

and whatever characteristics that you can name or discover you can add.

You name it, lots of people here...Probably the most diversity of any country in the entire world..

But there is more to this...I am adding today..12/28/18..Monday afternoon. That diversity is often invisible. Unless you look for it, maybe you don't see it. If you live in a rural area, maybe you will not see it at all. But it is there. This post is about how these people learn to be, what they turn out to be. Many come from good families, get a good education, and never cause any trouble. If they have political views that are not fitting in with a group of people, they know it is best to "shut up." No matter what side of the aisle that most people view life, they do not impose their views on others..and most of the time they "shut up" and do not cause trouble..

...But there are people who cannot shut up.. They like to hurt people with their words. And many are absolutely sure that they are totally correct with their thinking. Even if it one in a hundred in that group, that number comes to 3,300,000 people.. Lot's of them. These are mean people who argue and are sure that they are right..How did they get like that?...Lots of reasons maybe...: school, parents, total family, horrific experiences, reading, watching TV, using the internet, radio, local people who are neighbors teach them hate, and other reasons too. It is all about hate and being mean. Perhaps our education system does not teach fairness and honesty. Many learn in other ways like on the job, or in groups of like minded people.. And the hate gets stronger. In some places there are more of them, and in some places there are less of them.

... We are not alone. Many countries have similar diversities of people. Nevertheless, we have 330,000,000 people here from all areas of the world. I taught for a while in a high school with lots of diversity in a big city. It was estimated that the students spoke 55 different languages at that time...(80s and 90s)...Oh, this is not new for the U.S.A. New York City around 1900 had the same diversity and still has it. People come from everywhere to this place. Most have passports if they come from other countries. Many do not. So, once in the country...who around checks to see if you stay too long?...no one..only if you get into "trouble"..Otherwise many people stay indefinitely and cause no trouble and hurt no one...This diversity is a plus not a minus as some think. With this diversity comes a desire to learn the ways of the U.S.A. (The great majority of students where I taught did not hate and were not mean)

But what about the crazies? Still, no one checks on them if they cause no trouble. There is no "crazy police" checking to see one's political views. Only if someone gets into "trouble" do they come and check on you..Even in the high school where I taught, most of the odd ones were left alone if they did not cause "trouble". People wonder where the crazies come from, and why are there so many? Well, even if there are one in 80 crazies, not one in a hundred, that would put the number at around 4,500,000.

..Perhaps the answer is not so simple as to where the crazies come from. More important, what is to be done to prevent them from hurting other people who are not crazy..I don't have that answer. Maybe you do. Perhaps you can post some ideas to solve this problem. Please do so...

But once in a while I do look at the good, and not crazy people. We have someone with Asian background named Ted Lieu. He is not crazy. There is an Afro-American from Chicago who was President of the U.S.A. He is not crazy. (I got the feeling from watching him that he and his wife are very kind) A lady from California will be, "Speaker of the House of Representatives. She is not crazy. So many more fine and wonderful people in this country.
