This is a clip from the first episode of the HBO drama "The Newsroom".
A great and true speech, a truth many Americans do not want to admit to, being patriotized from early childhood on. Not only a good start for the show, with a great performance from Jeff Daniels, but also something to reflect upon.
I think Jeff Daniels is the most underrated actor in history. Wow. And everything he just said is 100% true.

I never agree with you but this is the third thing tonight in three different threads that I have to agree with. (I didnt comment on the others but I will) First I want to say thanks for the video. It hits the proverbial nail right on the head. America used to be the greatest country on the Earth, but it isn't any longer. I grew up in the America that he describes in the last half of the video.
America will never be what it once was until the sheeple all wake up and say enough is enough and take the country back from those who have destroyed it.
I will give you the first star and flag Ive ever given you for this!
We lead the world in only 3 categories:
* number of incarcerated citizens per capita
* number of adults who believe angels are real
* defense spending (more than the next 26 counties combined)
