i like the character of hesher.. it seems he may not be all that intelligent but i believe in fact he is full aware of the truth.. and thats about americans in general. we as a country are very selfish and greedy and just because something goes wrong we make a big deal out of it. i guess it all depends on how you are raised.. i guess things could always be worse. sure its good to try and be the best you can be but always be humble and be thankful. i am very thankful jus to have a roof over my head. it doesnt really make me a happier person to have everything in the world.. sure it might prevent boredom.. but you as a person have to be creative enough to entertain yourself with what ya got. hesher may look like the asshole but in fact hes really a good guy.
