20Feb13.....<quoted text>Do you EVER put the flag down? Do those stars and stripes strip you of all reason and any intelligence you possess- no matter how little that intelligence is?
What the USA does around the world all too often is sticking its nose in the business of other countries.
The absolute irony of this country having been formed to escape British imperialism only to then begin to become the most imperialistic country in the world is...well.....ironic.
And really- your "love it or leave it" crap is just that- CRAP.
We've been down this road before, RR. To criticize or acknowledge the faults of a country doesn't mean one doesn't love a country or that they don't want to be in that country.
It simply means accepting that there are flaws and that some of those flaws are very serious.
I realize this is a difficult concept for you to grasp since you have posted here that if one of your sons told you they were gay you would disown them, so the meaning of loving something/someone "warts and all" is a concept you just can't grasp.
However, for most people, they can love something or someone and without any possibility of that changing because they don't love some things ABOUT something or someone.
.....Obviously you know very liddle about the WholeWideworld and have Not ventured very far from your backYard, let alone your local village.
Ps:.....BobLoblah has 'lived & worked' in 23 countries and continues to do so. BobLoblah has seen and knows fullWell vot the US of A (in particular) and other Western countries are doing to help manKind. NO other country gives so much. Whether it be foodStuffs, Medicines, Technology, Professional-People, and da WholeNineYards than the US of A.
....BobLoblah, while living and working in Iraq....saw (recently) a poor man walkUP to the back of a UN truck, while wearing a TeeShirt vit the face of 'osamaBinLeadenHead' on da front and proceeded to 'hoist' a bag of FREE rice to carry with 'From the US of A' stamped on the back.
Now, it that isn't hypocricy...what is it.

.....either you are toooooooooooooo afraid or yer mommy won't LetCha.
Forever and Ever
