Because bashing a friendly discussion won't have that same effect?


Sorry where was the discussion at, basically all he did was spout some random nonsense about patriotism and that's all...

Yawn, next.

Actually I was thinking a little more like this....
A little out dated . . . or maybe not....
Honestly, right now, I'd rather live here rather anyplace else. America has problems but I like to think we can fix them....


If you listen to the album Jello Biafra's ad-lib is pretty cool...
I still worry....
Kind of spooky . . . at least I think so...

becuase a song about shoving a boot up your ass and carpet bombing is so what america is about.
*sigh* then again, maybe it is.
or maybe the american dream is selling drugs, then rapping about it and becoming famous.
edit: i dunno. nor do i really care.
i just know we got the biggest stick in the world.

I could choose to ignore it just like he could of chose not to post it, see that excuse doesn't work very well now does it?

Interestingly enough I haven't seen any anti American threads, wonder why?

Yep thats right there aren't any as far as i've seen.


That's because any thread mentioning America becomes anti-American. Seriously, it's like instant hate. Your posts kind of validate the point too. You may not like the U.S. but it really isn't much of an excuse to belittle someone's thread.

Just to let you know I'm not too cynical . . ..



I think a real patriot doesn't tell people to love America or leave it....

No no, i never claimed I hated America. Get your facts right before accusing someone of something, I said I hate patriotism, that includes other countries that go all on about their country.

Make sure to salute your flag or not let it touch the ground because that would be disrespecting your country...lmao see how stupid that sounds yep.

But then again you wouldn't understand and thats ok I wouldn't want you to think for yourself instead of being a blind sheep that follows everyone else.

Difference between me and others is i don't worship the flag or the country I live in, I live my life and that's all there is to it.

Key word there was "may", but the point is moot. I apologize for the confusion; however attacking someone's intelligence is no better. No, I do not follow everyone like a "blind sheep". I am no way a rabit patriot, but there is a degree of respect. While I will agree that blind devotion to a country could be dangerous, I see no harm in saluting a flag or not letting the flag touch the floor. After all, I believe that is a sort of tradition that dates well back into ancient times. If I may, can I inquire as to why it seems like worship to you? Just a bit curious.

There are some perks to being here. And I think we need a patriotic spirit.

I think without a spirit of patriotism, how on earth can we fix our issues. If everyone is sitting around pessimistic and hateful of the country, whether that hate is deserved or undeserved, it's not gonna change anything..
Ex. The American Revolution
They fought against the governing power they were a part of.. but they did it for patriotic reasons. Those who fight to change the nation for the better are the true patriots.. those who go along with everthing the country does are dumb nationalists, and the people who just say, "fuck america", are just cynics who don't accomplish anything, whether or not their thoughts are valid

Also, that's a great song


Germany has no patriotism, has the lowest gun deaths per year, by both cops, crime etc. It also has the highest GDP and one of the lower depression/suicide rates. I don't see Germans suffering as much as a lot of Americans do?

Is the patriotic spirit really needed? I know it is the reason America is the laughing stock of the world right now. Ask around about America to anyone who lives outside it. It is really funny what they think, perceive and joke around about when it comes to America.

We posting song lyrics?!

The American dream is to grow up knowing dreams don't come true and watch rich people play the poor and blind follow the blind.
Proceeded by a make believe system of commerce and society status. The rich feed and the poor suffer without an escape. Greatest country ever man. For sure.

I think the 'way' of a people group is referred to as their 'culture'. http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/culture
