I must have tickled a sore spot.
I do, because you were so horrified by my Walmart statement. Talk about hitting a sore spot. As far as insults go, that had to have been one of the
weakest ones ever.
When did you speak to every person is this country to determine their priorities? Why do you believe that Walmart and McDonalds are of such
importance to Americans? There are millions of people in this country and just as many wants, needs and desires. To catagorize all of them the way
you did is unjustifiable.
I was speaking more to the faux patriot here in ATS that's constantly whining about how America is going down the toilet and martial law is just
around the corner, but you know what? Those statements apply to America as a whole, too.
Why do I think that's our priority? What country do YOU live in? Wanna know what Americans do better than anyone else on the planet?
We may not be too good at numbers and science and general common sense, but by God we can consume the # out of anything you throw at us.
Why do I believe Walmart and Mcdonalds are so important? Because they're on every other block in America. Along with Starbucks. We vote with our money
in this country, and let me tell you, the masses have spoken.
But I digress. Again, that wasn't really my point. Hey, I love this country. I'm just scratching my head at when it became vogue to incessantly
complain about the country you supposedly love so much.
