Adolescent!


Word History: The adolescent grows up to become the adult. The words adolescent and adult ultimately come from forms of the same Latin word, adolscere, meaning "to grow up." The present participle of adolscere, adolscns, from which adolescent derives, means "growing up," while the past participle adultus, the source of adult, means "grown up."

hmm.

"wow", maybe?

incidently, the following three phrases consist of the exact same letters:

i pledge allegiance to the flag
Eagle pen A Delicate Flight Log
Eagle Decapitate Hell, Golfing

"Sigh"

I lean towards asinine and juvenille though as well.

That's not to say I do not love my country.

Beautiful too.

"I gotta say something about America, and I can sum it all up in just one word: courage, dedication, daring, pride, pluck, spirit, grit, metal, and G-U-T-S, guts! Why, America has got more guts in her little finger than most of us have in out large intestine, including the colon!"

One word huh?


"Pioneering"

Simple as that really. Most of modern culture (like it or hate it) originated right here... Mass use of cars for personal transportation, mass use of radio, mass use of television, computers and the internet, you name it....all pretty much started right here.

Not to mention, we were founded by folks who weren't afraid to go over that next hill and see what they could find there.... It's simply what we're made of...

there should be a thread like this for all countries... see if "they" like the bashing.

I'm not saying America is perfect but it is my home and I wouldn't live anywhere else.

F A K E

I am from Canada. From this perspective, most everything in and about the US is fake, false, phony, and a great big lie. You cannot trust anything about their claims, objectives or purposes. Everything is clandestine and meant as a smokescreen to prevent the rest of the world (or even its own citizens) from finding out what is really going on.

COMPOST

Like a compost pile, there is a lot of destruction, rot, stink, ugly creatures and turmoil. However, like in the end compost results in a rich mixture that makes plants grow fantastic, America's turmoil often results in artistic, social and material creativity that is unmatched anywhere in the world.
