I'm an ultra hyper-patriot. There ... I've said it ... I love this country ... Apparently, some people don't agree with me. Take the moronic Dixie Chicks' latest comments for example:
"A lot of pandering started going on, and you'd see soldiers and the American flag in every video. It became a sickening display of ultra-patriotism."
"The entire country may disagree with me, but I don't understand the necessity for patriotism," Maines resumes, through gritted teeth. "Why do you have to be a patriot? About what? This land is our land? Why? You can like where you live and like your life, but as for loving the whole country... I don't see why people care about patriotism."
Why are we so hyper patriotic? Because this is the best fucking country in the world, that's why! I can wake up at 3:30am and drive to any one of several 24-HR Walgreens and pickup Insulin, Diet Pepsi, and a Maxim Magazine. Does it get much better than that? Most people just don't realize how good we have it here. Try spending a week in Britain ... Everything closes down at 5:30. Just try to buy a big screen plasma TV at 8:00pm ... It's not happening!
I'm so sick of hearing liberals whining about this and that ... oh ... the government is looking at my phone records ... I have to pay for my own abortion ... I don't want to see that cross anymore that has been up for over a hundred years ... Shut the fuck up! Juxtapose that whining with this story from the escalating violence in Sri Lanka:
The Tigers said they had few details of what had happened, but each side blamed the other for hitting a church that was sheltering civilians. Some 50 civilians were wounded, the military spokesman said, saying rebels had thrown grenades into it as they withdrew.
But rebel media coordinator Daya Master said the military had shelled the church.
You think having to pay for your own abortion sucks? At least the US military doesn't chase people into churches before lobbing hand grenades inside.
