I know it is, im ashamed to be a part of this country. Maybe if we did the right things and told the truth for once Id feel differently.

Well,in my opinion you're just an ahole who should move to the mideast if you love it so much.That way you can see how free you'ld be there...and we wouldn't have to suffer your presence here.
Also you'ld be happier and the US would be nicer without you.A win win situation.

It isn't that the heart of America is bad I don't think...or even the brain,
but you have a parasite or rather a colony of blood sucking
low down limp deeke, socio/psychopathetic @$$ hat, ice wholes
that not just you,
but we, collectively
have to purge.

So, don't lose hope, quiting would be the biggest favour
anyone could ever do for them.

I guess giving the most money to charities, giving the most in foreign aid, and bailing out other countries with our awesome SuperMajority votes in the IMF are just things we should not be proud of. The world may want you to believe that the US is so evil that its despicable, but they don't stop taking hand-outs or put trade embargoes on us.

I remember a few years ago, people even said that the US didn't have as much of an affect on the global economy as we arrogant Americans think, but as soon as the global economy goes to crap, everyone blames America first.

I will say that we do wrong and aren't the shining democracy that we are supposed to be, but we also aren't horrible. Change is certainly in order from the inside-out, but America doesn't deserve abandonment from her patriots.

Too...Your kind of Anti -american rhetoric wasn't very welcome 50 years ago...In fact you would be considered a communist or fellow traveller...so go,find somewhere to be happy.

Really Ressie
you are ashamed of your country?? Of us americans? The rogue government we now have? The military industrial complex? Or just ashamed to what??

Why not find a better place to live? I really don't mean to attack but it blows my little, southern redneck mind that most people that feel the way you do can't find the good in the everday people who inhabit our country. It's the government that we have let ourselves become enslaved to that should make you ashamed. It's my-your-our fault that we are in this predicament. You think the Middle East is better??? Just blows my cotton-pickin little brain.

And yet you stay. If you are so ashamed, I would think you would move to your beloved Middle East. Seems a bit hypocritical to me. There are many, many reasons to criticize this country and I honestly believe it is our right as citizens to do so. But please let's have a little perspective here.

The Middle East? Really?

'our' flag?

it looks to be plastic to me, so the irony is apropos. And it was most likely manufactured in China, so...

If it's 'our' oil, then surely we should nationalize the oil companies.

I can't believe you feel that way - America is still a great country, good people - we just voted in some that are trying to change it into a country that it was never intended to be. Perhaps you should leave and hang your head down when you do!

Where is that photo from?
I ask because the outline above and to the left of the flag makes it seem like it was just laid there moments before on purpose.Or photoshopped..

seems like propaganda too me..

my thought exactly.

and plastic flags made in china arent very patriotic, last i checked.

especially if they are intentionally soiled for a photo op.

To me it looks almost as if someone tried to pick it up, sliding it from its original position but decided it was too icky, so let it go.

and you're exactly right, but now we americans have to figure out how we're gonna purge these parasites. i, for one believe that they have, with their positions, created laws that protect them as much as possible from the people, but we need to clear all of DC. walk up, unarmed if need be, and toss these fools out onto the street.
