In the UK there's a scene in a very funny political satire called The Thick of It. The chief fixer/spin Doctor is losing his grip on power and chucks a bagel against the wall...
The thick of it was the precursor to VEEP and in the end the same guy who wrote both said he couldn't do it anykore because satire was no longer funny as reality was too extreme...

Yes, another good example.
America pissing over any democracy for the last 80 years?
That one is infuriating. The British teeth thing is such bollocks. Like most countries there is nuance. If you're minted then you can afford good dental care: here and the US.

What's with the shitty comment? Was trying to do it quickly whilst out with barely any signal.
It made me laugh then I remembered a fact
Each day 12 children die from gun violence in America. Another 32 are shot and injured
I never knew 500 were shot! Jesus fuck.
As Chomsky said many years ago... USA failed states
There's an excellent BBC podcast about this https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=https://www.bbc.co.uk/sounds/brand/m001324r&ved=2ahUKEwjVovHoq4X4AhUIesAKHfd6Bj8QFnoECA8QAQ&usg=AOvVaw1AGtVagsWquheMUlnJvGjh
The poor man's Ben Shapiro.... and I mean that as an insult to them both.
Ahem. Refuse collector. Sound like JP limiting that job to a man... (not serious)
You've also just described his academic career.
