China Says “Americans are Lazy”

Are They Right?

Last Week, J.P.Morgan CEO, Jamie Dimon and Elon Musk both agreed with the Chinese Government in saying that “americans are lazy” especially in comparison to Chinese Workers.

Both Dimon and Musk point to low participation rate in the workforce and America’s mismanagement of our schools, the economy, and the environment.


Here’s why Mr. Dimon and Elon Musk are not as “smart” as they think they are. There are actually two Americas. And anyone with half a brain knows this.

There is the American people and then there is the American government.

Those are not the same thing and they are not the same America.

When China or any other nation wants to call America “lazy” they are referring to our government, which is full of the most lazy and entitled people on this planet.

And it’s on both sides of the aisle. Take Nancy Pelosi for example, she orders people around. She treats everyone as her servant. During the Pandemic, while every American was told to stay in their homes and mask up, Nancy Pelosi ordered a beauty salon in California to open up and “service her hair.”

Does she represent America? Not even close. She thinks she is a queen and the American people are here to serve her needs. Guess what Pelosi — it’s the other way around you pompous ass. You serve us!

But let’s go to the Republican side. Take Donald J. Trump for example. Can there be a more lazy individual in America? While he riled up his MAGA supporters and told them to go get arrested and ruin their lives by “storming the capitol” he was sitting in the kitchen at the White House, yelling and screaming as if he was watching Sunday NFL Ticket.

Let’s be real for a second. Who screwed up our schools? The American government. Who screwed up our economy? The American government. Who botched the Pandemic response? The American government.

Pick any problem in our society and the culprit is the American government.

The American people are not lazy, on the contrary, the American people are resourceful and hard working. It’s the American government that is lazy, fat, rich and entitled.

Who’s kidding who?
