I would like to comment on this particular
American Patriots being proud of their freedom -
"Know how we got that freedom?" Sure, by
invading other's lands, slaughtering them and
occupying what once was theirs."
Hmmm...err, Who is we? We got our freedom? I
haven't invaded any lands (recently). No one can
be responsible for the actions of their
ancestors. Women have been treated horribly for
several thousand years-so why don't we offer
compensation to the descendents of every woman???
Feel free to give your land back to the native
americans, please. I am very proud of my freedom,
as are many people; because many of us now have a
better understanding of the word.
....but free speech is part of freedom...so I
respect the right of the author to publically
display his ideas...
(searching for a quote) can't remember...was
something like, "I may not like what you're
saying, but I'll fight to protect your right to
say it." (sounded smarter in old english, tho.
Someone like Thomas Jefferson or Frederick
Bastiat said it)
