Why do Americans think they're entitled to run people's lives, what gives you the right?

I'm not just talking about the Gay issue. But in general, Americans are always trying to impose rules on a corporation, or an individual, when they have absolutely no stake in the corporation, and don't absolutely no authority to tell a person how to live their lives or how to raise their kids, or what to eat, or what to wear. Let me give you some examples:

McDonald's. What McDonalds pay their employees is between the employees and McDonalds. What McDonalds serves on their menus, is between McDonalds and their customers, if you dont' like it, don't eat there.

NFL lockout, people were raising hell about the NFL players who were demanding their contracts be renegotiated. These people weren't out there busting their butts and being subject to injury and brain damages, yet they were complaining that NFL players should get out there and play and quit whining. Guess what? It's none of your freaking business. You can have an opinion, but you have no right to get upset and demand action about something that doesn't concern you.

    I agree that no one has any right to tell a business owner how much he must pay to any given willing employee, but this disturbing authoritarian tendency is not exclusive to Americans. Not even close. Most of the rest of the world is even worse in that regard.

    Guess you're not familiar with the self-imbued delusion known as "American Exceptional-ism...?"

    Eisenhower came up with that one.

    if we have to pay the employee's health care and food stamps because they aren't making enough, then we do have a stake in it.

    Progressivists think they were put in this world to run every facet of the world. They meddle in everything, even telling you what you should stick up your bum.
