    We are at our best when things are at their worst...

    Can America's 'best hometown' survive? - CNN.com

    I love our resiliency and our courage, and how we come together when faced with unthinkable tragedy. In some ways, I miss the days right after 9/11, because we were all reminded of what does matter, and what doesn't.

    just wanted to share this article/thought with the board.

    So, what do you love about America?

    That no matter what our beliefs, when push comes to shove we will help our fellow humans.

    For better or worse, I'm glad our citizens are armed to the teeth.

    I love the diversity of our people, people who have come here representing nearly every country on the planet.

    I love the land itself, with all of its rich beauty.

    I love the ideals of America, the foundation of the American Dream, which is still possible for those who are willing to work hard and achieve much.

    It's my country. I don't always love the political divisiveness, don't always love the choices government makes, don't always love the tensions between races and ethnicities that always seems to simmer below the surface... not just in this country, but in all countries where vastly divergent populations live in close proximity with each other.

    I don't always love what my country does, but I do love what it stands for. Sometimes, we have to step back and remember what that really is.

    Of course America will survive. America's awesome!









    In the meantime, I'm hedging my bets and taking all my money out of the country if this debt ceiling thing doesn't get resolved.

    I'm impressed by your feelings... All we have to do is rid ourselves of liberalism and we'll be right back where we should be. Its coming soon.

    This is why people hate you, dickhead. You have all the social skills of a half rotten zombie. This thread isn't partisan. Now, go grab your lotion and some tissues, and fuck right off.

    Sadly, I'm not sure that I could, if I wanted to.
