    "Ninothchka" really pokes fun (somewhat unfairly) at the "good old days". But it's hilarious. The scene where you see the outside of the Soviet emmissary's hotel suite, and they're bringing in the food, and drink, and then you hear a really big shout when the girls go through the door... It just cracks me up.

    Take materialism out of America and the country is dead.

    I have always said, a pathetic way to live. It is really questionable whether the wealthy enjoy looking at their wives or at the stock market numbers more.

    Not that you can't live otherwise in America. Not at all. I am just talking about the foundation.

    I understand your point, but not all Americans are wealthy, or aspire to be. You apparently are one of them.

    A country's character, like most people, contains a mixture of admirable and not-so-admirable qualities.

    Most people fall into 2 categories:

    1) Wealthy

    2) Those that aspire to be like, emulate or admire wealthy people.

    Big - you need to take a road trip across America before you make blanket statements about Americans like that. America is not just New York - you seem to need to take a vacation from the city. Go out west. See some of the national parks, drive through South Dakota, see the Grand Canyon. You need a break.

    That's a great idea, Bonnie. Big, you need a vacation. Come out West and see the majesty of this land and meet some genuinely nice people.

    NYC has people from all over America. They all say its boring in those other places. I am not looking for a quiet life somewhere on the lake. I just would like a different attitude towards wealth.
