61 Tornadoes

Diego salads said this is the truth and nothing but the truth a tornado almost killed me and my parents

A tornado almost killed all of my friends.

Good luck stopping those!

62 Hunger

Taking back to the subject of being greedy, if everybody a single major city were to give up just around 15 % of their food up to a cause that helps other countries, then that would literally feed another city in somewhere like, Africa or China

I am someone who suffers with hunger :'( stop worldwide hunger

A lot of people go hungry in 'our' country every day. That's just sad, what with 263,000,000 pounds of useable food thrown into landfills EACH DAY.

64 Greed
65 Narcissism

YES, as an American, I can absolutely clarify that a LOT of Americans are arrogant, selfish, have a massive ego, and over all have a god complex. It's not that they think they are the greatest country in the world- they think they are better than everyone else, which is worse.

And no, this isn't everyone obviously. There are humble kind people, but arrogance and REFUSAL to admit wrong-doing or mistake is a huge problem in America.

Say... that reminds me a lot of our 45th POTUS, don't you think? - ModernSpongeBobSucks

66 Slow Internet

This can get annoying. can't the internet work faster? - cosmo

Most European countries have more advanced telephone/internet ways. O myself have dealt with AT&T and they are horrible. It took them 28 days to get to our house and install internet. The internet was also arse.

Man I hate when it buffers when I'm in mid stroke

TDS Telecom. 5mb/s if I'm lucky. I have the best package that works at a monopolized price. The highest package is 15mb/s but you'll be lucky if you get 3 with it's instability.

67 Beating On Women

Very true, I agree that men should stop beating women but what about the women that beat men? Most people say that we need to stop beating women but they always turn their head when a girl beats her boyfriend or husband. We need to treat this issue as we would with child abuse.. It's not right but it still happens but lets at least try to solve these. Abuse is still abuse and it's time we put an end to it

We need to stop beating women because the person who brought you into the world is a women & you wouldn't beat your mother... Follow me on instagram @ Young_Runner_1

True women being beaten is wrong and is a huge problem in the United States

Beating up anyone is wrong... - yuki-blue

68 Homosexual Mafia

Homosexual mafia is a problem because they are taking over Brooklyn 60% are real citizens but the rest are mafia

Gay rights are a huge problem in America. Those things shouldn't even be considered people and they have the audacity to form an organization! Two dogs don't get married so why should we allow gays to. These abominations are a disgrace to the human race. I'm gay.

69 The Economy

It sucks its hard to get a job in this economy.

70 Hateful Idiots Who Think They are Better Than Others Because They Have More Money

71 Haters

Haters going to hate

72 Depression

Children suffer from the acts of selfless adults, fellow students, and the stress put pain them. And it may cause depression. Children around the world are depressed and it seems like such a sad thing...

73 Body Shaming

Body shaming is an actual problem in America, children in school especially teens go through rough times trying to love themselves and often are body shamed by others in passive and blunt ways. Girls especially experience self hate towards themselves when other girls call them fat, too skinny or judge their body shape. It is something many teenage girls go through which further leads to self-harm and suicide. It I believe is a new arising issue in this generation, even though there is so many singers and actors promoting self-love and everything people seem to still find something wrong with someone else's body.

74 Common Core

You guys saying common core is bad don't even know anything about it. It does not change anything you learn. It Tries to make things a little easier while still teaching it. Also before common core every state taught things at a different pace, so if a kid moved from say, California to New York, their new school may be learning something a grade level ahead of where they were at their old school. It does take a little ajusting to, but future generations are going to benefit.

Common core is retarded. It's geared to make it comfortable for kids who have a hard time understanding it, but all it does is make it more complicated.

Common Core is ridiculous. Just do regular math in your damn class

This is the reason why test scores are declining and why schools need so much practice for the PARCC. - SavageLG

75 Jews

This country was founded so people could be any religion they want. Atheism is a problem. Their logic makes no sense. ask an atheist how the universe was created and they will say "the big bang" but ask them before that and they will get all defensive. Jewish is LITERALLY the same thing as Christian, but they don't believe Jesus is the savior. One thing I don't like about Catholic (my religion) is that they are constantly saying all other religions are wrong. My sunday school teacher basically told me I shouldn't be friends with one of my friends just because he was a Hindu! They say to love everyone, but they disrespect anyone who is not catholic based on their religion!

You have been cursed just for writing this.

Presented by- A gang of neo-Nazis! Either that or one of those Catholics that will actually hunt down gays and murder them, and will call people idiots for not being a Catholic as they are.

Lol. WoW...nothing rascist about that - Sabdshark63

77 Bad Movie Remakes
