Firstly If you bumped into me in the street I would be the first to apologise. I like good manner and do not wish to offend.
I am secure in the following:
1) My sexuality.
2) My place in the world.
3) My faith in America to regenerate itself.
4) My ability to handle myself in a fist fight.
5) My ability to handle guns effectively but I prefer cold steel as it is up close and personal.
6) My understanding of the contradictory aspects of my mind.
When you have that level of security as a deeply held belief. You look at the opinions expressed and ask why the bellowing? Could it not be stated quietly?
And I agree with 80 to 85% of his opinions. I do not share his views on race and god knows the American understanding of socialism ( frankly a word so meaningless, as to require qualifying adjectives) is at odds with the rest of the world.
Anyway talk never cooked rice. Saner heads will still have to sit down and fix America. A whole new paradigm is needed that rewards thrift and hard work but also curbs the free market capitalism as it has led us to this fine mess. We do not need bloated government. The greatest nation in the world cannot have people dying in the street. Do I have all the solutions? Hell no? But we should get rid of the lobbyists.
I have been trained to fight a civil war when I did my national service. I can tell you I would not wish it on my worst enemy not because I am a wuss but because of the effect on the extended family and neighbourhoods. It is all a waste.
Do you not think the division and vitriol has already led to terrible murders this week? Yes I know the shooter is mad but his actions are a reflection of the American split.
And on the topic of race I have posted on my abhorrence for the so-called black leaders and have a special place in a cess-pit for that idiot sharpton who I would incarcerate there.

I think a lot of it is nonsense and extremely self centered. I like some of the comments there, at least I'm not alone.
I mean, this land was stolen from the Natives to begin with.

But I'm not American so it doesn't matter.
A large part of our bailout monies went through AIG to to Duetche bank execs so you can start to back off the"American greed fest; its a worldwide human animal disease.:" like "Rascist" eventually you leftys will find another word to tar your fellow citizens.every other line.

He is right... That is how it should be. I hope he realizes that his beloved American businesses and their greed are what started this mess..
