This is a thread about our magnificent and diverse country.. Screw the rest of the dribble..Ive had kin die in every skirmish from the revolutionary war to desert storm. Weve a right to be proud.


Well iíve had kin die in concentration camps by flag waving nationalists , so iíll keep spewing my dribble , Bubba. Thanks for making my point on tolerance for opposing viewpoints.

Chaz , I donít have diversity envy, I am part of the Canadian diversity!



And thank you Captain, I'm Paisley too.

tolerance for opposing viewpoints????? you were the one all bummed out and spreading the negativity. I'm just confused about why people have to take a thread started by someone good like Bruce and turn it into some political statement when it wasn't meant as such. Thats all. If you have to have a negative view, then go for it. But it would be nice if once in awhile we could just chill. I think thats all Bruce was shooting for. He isn't stupid. He knows that the world is full of nasty sh#t. And he definitely isn't for blind obedience to some nationalistic call. So maybe try chilling a little and watch the video I posted. The songs saweeet, even if some of the pictures are a bit cheesy.

But whatever dude. I hope things are going okay for you.

but I guess you just want ethnic confirmation not opposition .


Whatever man. Actually, you told me to take my flag waving elsewhere first, on my thread. I merely returned the favor.

I don't remember requiring you to participate in the first place.

Besides, I stated in the OP that we had a lot to do to live up to the expectations of ourselves and the world. I've posted bikers, punks, homeless people, dirt poor American Indians and more. Does that really qualify as mindless flag waving nationalism? Me thinks not.

We've all had ancestors die at the hands of as#@&%es. I had relatives escape from Germany, and relatives that died in the Civil War, even one who died on Bataan Death March. Does that make me more American than you are? Me thinks not.
