I appreciate your supporting argument. My patriotic claims are now validated beyond refutation
Anyway, I know there is a lot less than satisfactory about America - but heck, for a lot of people, they only get the bad stuff. The media loves to dress things up and make things seem worse than they are. So I can't blame you if that is what you are going on. However, oh my gosh, just knowing the history and the background behind this country, to know how hard it struggled to make it and how it completely defied what everyone had expected, how it became a world power and has particpated (if not successfully at all times but valiantly nonetheless) in every major war since its birth . . . It's coming - I can feel it - it's clawing up through my throat and I don't think - I can - stop it - . . . God Bless America!!
