America looks like a beautiful country in these old pics, too bad all those whites came and made it into a Disneyworld.

All of those nature pics in this post still exist. The "White Man" did not destroy the natural wonders of North America. Also, Christopher Columbus did not "Found" or "Find" us. We were always there. The vikings arrived before that other asshole. LOL I am Canadian and we have proof.

I just drove, and camped all through this place last week. I went through Utah, Arizona, New Mexico and Texas......Nothing has changed. There is no money to be made in this place therefor only the poor and cattle farmers live here... Still very beautiful and very clean..... Fuck everyone who talks without any type of knowledge for which they are discussing

oh my god. some of you people need to quit being blinding by the mainstream media and read a friggin book for once. what the "white man" did was create a new country that until recently was still considered the best country in the world. Do they do it without destruction? Unfortunately, no they did not. It is shameful, yes but show me any other country that was built without war, dispute, or blood. Then you can bitch about how the "white man" ruined everything. And to add to the beauty of this country, if you'd get off your fat asses and actually visit the wonders of this and or other countries you'd maybe see that there is much more out there.
"Without war, dispute, or blood." That's funny. America's had plenty of all three. Not only has America gone to war, it's had its own civil war; there's plenty of dispute within the country itself, and especially recently, things have gotten violent over that.

I will say on the other side, though, that America has plenty of natural wonders. There are places like my own state, New Jersey, that have such urban and suburban density that you need to go a fair distance afield to find those wonders, but there are also plenty of chunks of our country that are just open country and landscape with smaller towns interspersed. Likewise there are the mountain areas, and stretches of forest. Stuff like that. Broaden your horizons, people. America is NOT as two-dimensional as you'd think if your only exposure was New York or something.
