As you can see from this thread, to the rest of the world americas obsession with its flag is bizzare if not disturbing.
You mean you don't care that your politicians lie to you,
that your big bisness exploits you,
that your govt destroys your environment,
that your rights are trampled,
that your poor are dying,
that your kids are dying in a foreign country because of a lie,
that only your rich recieve adequate medical care,
that your medical conglomerates rip you off,
that your low paid slave labour market destroys lives,
that your expansionist foreign policy scares other countries,
that your media pollutes the world with pornography,
that your agricultural and animal industry pump you full of chemicals, poisons and hormones in the name of maximising profit,
that your society sucks in the most resources on the planet, that your people become more ethnocentric and uncaring of others, .....
... but you get really upset when your flag gets autographed by your president....
You guys have really got your priorities screwed. all this crap over one innocnet event whilst the rest of your society burns....
