I'd rather do without all of the above.

Well, I guess you won't receive that hug, after-all.

What I would do is serve the lord with all my might, all my mind, and all my soul.

I would evade debt in order to serve him.
I would evade "education" at college, in order to serve him.

Adopting a child would be wonderful.  Having children would be wonderful.   Charity would be wonderful. 

I can serve the Lord while in college. And I can be a faithful Christian while I'm paying back my loan.

I used to have a black and white TV in my room.  After it went bust, I never bothered to get a colour TV.  Now that it's been mentioned, I want a black and white TV!

...and since I am a married woman to a husband that owns lots of guns with a plan in place to use them if a reason should arise.

But I'm sure you'll find your soul mate one of these days.

Yeah I will find one and she won't need to use a forum to ask anonymous members on what to do with a loan.

Obviously your husband is of no help.

I wonder what it is like to have a loser husband that needs to validate his manhood with his many guns rather than having a conversation with his own wife, not random strangers, on adopting a child.

Here is what I noticed in my time in Central and Eastern Europe.

In Central Europe you had the freedom to be content and satisfied. It was quite nice. Really, that States were so jarring when I got. It's hard to realize, if you are like me and realize that America is insane, how insane America is till you get a break for a handful of years from it.

In Eastern Europe there was an improvement, you had the freedom to fail. It was simply OK to have overshot and failed miserably. It was NBD. In central Europe, failure wasn't taken so warmly. But hey, you almost were a concert level musician and a nasty skiing accident took it away? No big deal. You might not even know the person had been a phenom at something in the past. You didn't have reinvent yourself, take second or third chance. Just get along and die.

It was quite lovely.

Perhaps we have and are selectively sharing the cure with people who don't seek to constantly try to make themselves, others, and the world better. And we didn't really cure cancer by the way, we just learned how to live along side it till other things killed us. In the words of Mary, John, and Martin: Let it be!

If being interesting means you have to be a shrew then no thanks.

For what reasons do I agree with orthonorm?  I guess because I think he's right about that.  I was on a break from America for almost 20 years--it gave me a much different perspective on it when I returned.  Or...did you mean something else?

Because I've seen you post a lot of self hating posts and pictures overtime which suggests you have different reasons for why you think America is insane. Which is why I asked. You understand that you can agree but for different reasons right?

The problem with Americans are that they are in constant competition with each other. Whether it be in class, status, material possessions, spouses, etc. We have to give the perception we are better than you. We are afraid of derision when we fail.

Or point to our own successes to cover up on severe defeciences. Kinda like the 60 year old male suffering from erectile dysfunction who buys a Mazda Miata.

"Self hating posts and pictures"?!?!?  Whatever are you babbling on about?

Of course I agree that people can agree about something but for different reasons.  Perhaps if you want to discuss why I or others might think America is insane you should start another thread.  At the end of the day, though, at least for the purposes of this discussion, what does it really matter?

And I actually kind of agree with your middle paragraph, although it is sweeping a bit too broadly and generally.  Not all of us are afraid to fail or afraid of derision if and when we do.
