You know how cliché’s become cliché’s? Because someone comes up with a really simple and hip way of putting something in perspective in a way that even morons can understand. Like “well that is all she wrote”. Which could be used for several different situations, but generally used in sporting events when it is clear that the game is over as far as who is going to actually win the game. Someone comes up with a real, gee I don’t know (talk about cliché’s) nifty way of putting something in its place that everyone can understand.

America has become a cliché country. You see that everyday in our country, culture politics, sports someone comes up with a clever and new way of doing something or way of talking. Five minutes later it is no longer new because everyone else who wants to be cool, oh I’m sorry awesome ends up doing the same thing or talking the exact same way. The modern America sitcom is a cliché taken from whatever the latest hit sitcom is and now everyone is writing and acting like that.

We are a country of Faddist’s. The American religion is Faddism. We do what we believe we need to do to fit in, in life and be like everyone else. So we are cool or awesome too. You want to know why Americans are stereotyped as dumb? I’ll tell you anyway, because we don’t think for ourselves. We let the latest hipster or hipsters do that for us. Whatever the profession and whatever the lifestyle is. Cloning is not supposed to be biologically possible yet, but you wouldn’t know it with so many people looking and talking and acting like everyone else. Faddism is in and individualism is out.
