Many migrants told me: The best people in America are migrants. Most locals don't excel. The local Americans have very different values. They keep taking, taking and taking. They don't know they should give. They don't know in other cultures people give after they receive (to the same person) immediately! They don't appreciate what you have done to them, even you should not have. They only want more, more, more!

That is because when they were young, no one teach them to be nice. They were only taught to be "successful", which means taking from the society. No one ever point out their wrongdoings since kindergarten. No matter how they sucks, teachers and parents keep telling them: You're great! You are wonderful!

These people grow up having no ability of knowing right and wrong. All they know is their rights. What they want is RIGHT! Anyone who reminds them of their responsibility is WRONG!

Even many local Americans admit: If there is one word to describe these Americans, that is, SELF-CENTERED - Not able to realize that there are other people, living, in this world!

Americans have difficulty understanding why the world don't like Americans. They feel so innocent: Why don't they like us?!!! They jealous us!!!

And the world says: No, we don't jealous you! We just can't respect you, for your behaviour!

President Obama IS different. He has the quality. He was raised differently. He understand that a leader cannot lead if he is arrogant and rude. A leader must give, give, give, behave, behave, behave, be humble, willing to take criticize, willing to improve, and understand even he is never perfect, he can be a leader as long as he is doing better than others.

Americans are so lucky to have him to be the president.
