@squares: I can't comprehend how somebody could say anything like that considering that the US government is currently shut down. LMFAO. It's a ridiculous claim.
@edamame: I don't consider the first nuke something to be proud of since inventing it was the dumbest idea humanity has ever come up with. I know actually building it took hard work from very smart people but it was still bar none the absolute stupidest idea any human being has ever come up with.
@pyrogram: Yes, the idea of mutually assured destruction is horrifying tho, its basically saying that our leaders are so petty and selfish that they'd be willing to kill the entire world for no other reason than revenge. And it would only be for revenge because they're are no winners in all out nuclear war.
@pyrogram: True but I'd be much more comfortable if the idiots in power now didn't have the ability to kill the world 14 times over. My Grandpa always told me to worry when a complete moron had a gun and I think the lesson applies well to governments filled with petty dips**ts with nukes.
You know what most of America suuuuuuuuuuucks. Drive across America and see how many places you would like to live in. I feel bad for the small town teen who has the choice of working at the Waffle House or the Denny's....... Have you been to Mississippi? That Place is awful!
me and carlin don't understand national or ethnic pride. my guess is this is some sort of trick thing like you say "I'm proud to be an American where at least i know im free" and then people say "yeah well what about this maaaaaaaaaaan?" Who is the world supposed to be rooting for anyways, college boys? russia? china? those sweethearts? i'll stick with freedom is just a little further down the road thanks
Not really. I think the country is, for the most part, run by morons, and we're constantly getting involved in affairs that we have no place being a part of. It's not great, but I could be living in a much, much worse place, so I'm at least thankful for that.
