I don't think I've been proud of my country in my lifetime. Granted, I haven't been around for 240 years, so that may have something to do with it, but I don't think there are many times at all that anyone should ever be proud of any country.



There you go.

Sorry. I can't be "proud" of a White House that has seances.

I disagree partly with this. First, not all politicians pander to the fringe of their party. Secondly, in context with the birther issue, clearly if certain republican politicians don't pander to extreme elements, they will be booted. I think this is the case with Sen Lugar of Indiana.

It's obvious dumb & dumber has tipped the scales. I feel for you on the smoking.

Well, looks like you are convinced, made up your mind (like birthers) and nothing will cause you to think differently.

I didn't care about seances. Dems sure did though.

Nancy Reagan was beat to hell publicly because she was into astrology and rumored to have had seances in the WH

Most FLOTUS don't say they have never been proud of their country

A FLOTUS shouldn't say our military are blood thirsty savages either. Both may be true in her mind but it's not patriotic to say that.

Note: The second point was an example, MO never said it

What facts? You know intent based on a few circumstances?

I sure as hell don't. I'm pretty intuitive but generally don't believe myself to be clairvoyant.

I don't get this criticism.

If conservatives/libertarians hated blacks, we would be HUGE advocates of the policies that Detroit, Chicago, Oakland or Baltimore operate under...The very same policies BHO endorses.

This quote pretty much sums up the fear on the right - BHO wants America to be one big slum run by black gangs.

You seem to cling to stereotypes and simple ideas/solutions. Things are far more complex than you seem to express. The guy was expressing something different, but you took it there.

No, he's either too economically illiterate to know what the consequences of his policies are or he wants as many people depending on government as possible. I think it's the latter.
