"Missing our American Reality" by MC Vendetta

"We're trying to live the American Dream, while we are missing our American Reality." 
- MC Vendetta

In response to the question, "How did Americans get so stupid?" - MC answered: 

"Americans became so stupid because we continuously cut funding for public schools and teacher salaries while upping standardized testing which doesn't effectively teach kids ANYTHING, evaluating teachers on their teaching abilities with the scores that absent students, disabled students and students who don't speak the language get on the tests, cut funding for family planning and sexual education so more and more people who are not prepared or educated enough to have and raise children properly are having and raising children improperly, and then simultaneously distancing people from their food supplies so that people have no idea what they are eating or where it comes from.
When you don't even bother to think about your food it makes it easier to sit on your couch instead of getting out and interacting with society...which is the main reason that it is so easy for "the government" to control us. 
They have used targeted advertising to convince us that we need to move away from black people and immigrants and "those who aren't real Americans" to a gigantic house in the suburbs with a chemically treated perfect lawn (never mind that those chemicals are leeching into our water supply, poisoning us and giving us, our kids and even our fucking dogs cancer and birth defects), where you have to have a perfect body and an expensive car in order to consider what you're living to be a "successful" life....convincing anyone who can't afford any of those things that they are unworthy, unattractive, unsuccessful and therefore...a loser...
So people get depressed, they eat shitty food and sit on their couches and dream of things they don't even really need while totally missing the things that they already DO heat and hot water. Ungrateful or even just completely unaware of all the blessings they have of simply being alive on this amazingly beautiful and miraculous planet called Earth. 
We've simultaneously bred ourselves to become spoiled and ignorant and impatient all at the same time and it's getting more and more evident every single day."
"We're trying to live the American Dream, while we are missing our American Reality."
