Hetson: "In the U.S.A. people are lazy. They don't participate, they don't vote, and they really should."
Jay: "What I see around me is frightening. The L.A. riots prove that people are upset (...) It's becoming a state where paranoia rules".
Greg: "What's been happening in the US over the last 15 or 20 years is that money has been going not only to fewer and fewer people who are in the upper class but money has been going away from inner city and working-class population and has been funneled to other countries where they can get cheaper labor, and because of that, an unusually high number of unhappy people in the inner cities and the working class has been ignored and I think that has resulted in widespread turmoil as has been broadcast throughout the western world in the last month with the L.A. riots".
Hetson: "There's rich, there's poor, and there's really not much in the middle anymore. Social programs have been cut and so the middle class is suffering and the poor are getting poorer."
Brett (pointing out serious issues concerning the U.S. while the other band members where talking about hockey) : "...that we don't have a national health insurance here, that all our foreign policy is completely controlled by the upper 1% of the rich, that the kids in the inner city can't get a decent education, that we drop bombs on Guatemala, you could go on and on. People are crying about baseball cards. I don't give a fuck about baseball cards, and you know what? George Bush doesn't give a fuck about baseball cards, either".
