    Apart from obvious clowns like like Fox News what is the other
    media’s stand on this?

    anyone disparaging these people for doing something they believe in is despicable. your desire to fight / win overpowers your rational brain… living in america is depressing.

      If you find it depressing and live here; then move. Go anywhere else. This country could use less patriotic citizens who feel living here is a disgrace. Men and Woman far better than yourself died so you have the liberty to say that out loud, and to spit in their faces saying it’s crap living here shows what kind of person you really are.

      Try living in a third world; an undeveloped, communist country where your “dreams” your “hopes” and “aspirations” mean jack-diddly-shit. Then tell me it’s depressing to be here you useless unpatriotic sack of shit.

        blow me, asshole.

        this is MY country and there’s NO WAY we’ll allow right wing scum to get away with any more of their mindless destruction. YOU fucking move. hell, you’d probably find plenty of right wing dictatorships out there far more to your liking.

        you fool. YOUR dreams, hopes, and aspirations mean jack-diddly-shit. this entire nation revolves around the right-wing agendas of corporations, and the empty grasps of the liberal’s desperately flailing arms. it IS crap living here- that doesn’t mean we don’t imagine how more shitty this superficial dump would be if our enlisted men and women didn’t defend our great nation (I’m referring to the physical land our nation is made out of). The people who protest, speak their mind without fear, and strive to IMPROVE the country (people often overlook the point of political protests) are far and away a great deal more of a service to this nation with their fervent patriotism.

        Keep in mind- George Washington and Thomas Jefferson didn’t like their country, either. So they made a new one.

        Yes there is A-mer-ica and third world countries, and that’s all folks. (Minus all the democratic countries that rank actually better than us economically and in overall happiness. Shhhhhhh!) By the way you are just proving his point. You say America is great for personal freedom, like speech, but you scream when they are used. Also, I hope you don’t think bombing poor brown people is fighting for our freedom. But for the record everyone I have ever met in the military has gone in it for money. So maybe it is a disgrace that we live in a country that would send our youth to die for a pointless fight and pay them piss for it.

          Are you going to let our emotional life be run by Time Magazine?
          I’m obsessed by Time Magazine.
          I read it every week.
          Its cover stares at me every time I slink past the corner candystore.
          I read it in the basement of the Berkeley Public Library.
          It’s always telling me about responsibility. Businessmen are serious. Movie
          producers are serious. Everybody’s serious but me.
          It occurs to me that I am America.
          I am talking to myself again.

          I haven’t got a chinaman’s chance.

          an unpublishable private literature that goes 1400 miles and hour and
          twentyfivethousand mental institutions.
          I say nothing about my prisons nor the millions of underpriviliged who live in
          my flowerpots under the light of five hundred suns.
          I have abolished the whorehouses of France, Tangiers is the next to go.
          My ambition is to be President despite the fact that I’m a Catholic.

          America how can I write a holy litany in your silly mood?

          America this is the impression I get from looking in the television set.
          America is this correct?
          I’d better get right down to the job.

          factories, I’m nearsighted and psychopathic anyway.
