Just try to figure out how standing on flags, disgracing soldier’s funerals and hating ‘fags’ is all mixed up together in some lunatic idea of thocratic conservativism. If liberals stood on the flag or disgraced a soldier’s funeral the right would actually do something …but they seem ok with this. There’s teaparty ignorance/stupidty, and then there’s the fucked up Phelps family who are off the charts.
Somebody tell adam eberg that the problem with the atheistic regimes to which he refers—Stalin, Pol Pot, Hitler—is that they were too much like religions. It wasn’t the atheism that killed people, it was the unthinking devotion to charismatic leaders who demonized all opposition and turned “intellectual” into an insult. Those nutjobs were much more like religious cult leaders than they were atheists. Besides, for an atheist, Hitler sure did talk a lot about God—with the backing of the Catholic Church.
SuperPoop said it best.
I’d just like to point out that drinking age is 18 in some parts of Canada. Oh and weed is well-tolerated here, too. Oh and we have healthcare. Any patriotic american response gets 5 points from me. 10 if they mention something about military. 20 if they’re even more typical American and don’t include any arguments at all, such as “Canada is gay.” or “No one cares about Canada” or “Everyone knows the US is better than Canada”.
