ice i am really fucking tired of seeing all these goddamn american flags everywhere. anywhere i look : cars, businesses, advertisements. they are all telling me that i should love america. i guess this makes me a communist. 011114
dB I guess so.
And there's all us commie bastards on the outside who look at america like it's some kind of joke that's paranoid about itself finding out things it already knows.

in their fight for freedom and democracy they have become the red barons dictating to the world. "do it our way or I'll fucking spank you!".

shmeer Government? you call the shits in the whte house a government? theyd make a better comody act than a government. Lets get someone that made somthing higher than a d average on his report card in office. 051107
dipperwell There is no government people never privately or publicly bitched about. I don't advocate complaining about the government unless a) you are legally unable to vote for reasons entirely beyond your control b) you voted adversely c) you could genuinely do a better job in that position and given those circumstances d) you aren't complaining while quietly taking advantage of any government-sanctioned services or activities or finally e) you are being genuinely oppressed (and when I say oppressed I don't mean that teen angsty whining shit).

People complain about the government the way Canadians complain about the weather. When it's summer, they complain about the unbearable heat, then laud the superiority of colder weather. And as soon as the mercury drops below 15 degrees celsius, those stifling heat waves seem like old friends.

Humans are fickle.

And I am human.
