    We may not be perfect,

    Today is the day to remember the thousands of

    men who died protecting our freedom. As someone who has 4 family members who are actively defending our country, and have lost 2 family members who did the same, it breaks my heart to turn on the news and see those apes stomping on our flag. As Hank Jr said, if you don't love it...

    I'm not a fan of the current Progressive

    movement currently enveloping our country. In fact I hate it. The movement that tells me that I HAVE to side with Trayvon Martin/Michael Brown because I'm black or face the consequences. The movement that tells women that they HAVE to be feminists or face the consequences...

    I was born and lived with my parents in America

    until I was 18 years old. At that time, my parents moved to Europe because of my father's job. Today, I live in a town where the military is huge and they are well respected by the community for their service to this country. America is a great country and that is because of...

    Born and raised but I never understood

    why some people get so upset with me because I don't say I'm proud to be an American . I guess I'm not really sure how you can have pride or Shame in where you live because in the end that's all it is where you live , you choose to make the best or worst of it .

    I love this country but it makes me sad to see

    We Used To Be A Proud Nation

    The most recent debate about "Obamacare" and all the embedded hypocrisy speaks to a larger problem: We are the most polarized we've ever been as a nation, and yet, at the core, we all maintain the same principles. Liberals and Conservatives will all generally agree on the...

    I'm wondering if practicing Muslim immigrants

    that are entering the country now are capable of accepting the principle of the separation of church and state. Some might question if fundamentalist Christians are but to me they seem to accept it for the most part. I have doubts so far as to practicing fundamentalist Muslims

    Read This And Thought It Was Funny

    A man goes into the hospital for a vasectomy. Before the procedure a very attractive nurse comes in and takes his vitals, then tells him to take all of his clothes off. When he is fully undressed she instructs him to lie down on the table. The man obeys. The nurse then takes all...

    Why do other countries hate us

    so much? Why do they feel the need to terrorize us? Attack us? Threaten us? Kill our people? Our friends? Our loved ones? Why are they keeping our soldiers captive and chopping their heads off? For what? To send us a message? What message? The only message they're sending us is...

    Honestly, almost all of the people

    who post in any of the "I hate America / American" groups sound like illiterates with anger management problems. Or just generally unfriendly, arrogant and ignorant. and people say us Americans are rude... Lol.

    Zimmerman Trial What Really Happened?

    No trial has divided this country in such a way since the O.J. Simpson trial. One of the biggest reasons is the media’s decision to exert their power and try to influence public opinion. The most noteworthy example is NBC and their edited 911 tape of Zimmerman’s call in. What...
