Unlike you, I don't need to hide behind the claim that "the American people" have my back. My views on patriotism are all my own, and I honestly don't care if you or anyone else shares them with me. So I'm OK saying that, in my opinion, you wouldn't know real patriotism if it was standing right in front of you. And if I was you, I'd be embarrassed that the Republicans suckered me in with a beer commercial interpretation of what should be a very highly regarded quality.Originally posted by: winnar111
I'm glad we elected Rainsford to define what a faux-patriot is!Originally posted by: Rainsford
I wouldn't exactly be celebrating your lack of taste and/or brainpower, there, Ace. The fact that Bush was the prefered candidate, twice, of you faux-patriots makes me think that, for all the times you use the word, you might not really know what it means.Originally posted by: winnar111

George W. Bush supported the VietNam war from a comfortable stateside berth in the Texas Air National Guard. He played "Fighter Pilot" in complete safety while better men fought and died in the war he supported but would not serve in himself. He did, however, learn to look good in a flight suit on the Abraham Lincoln, making political hay of his brave "carrier landing" (in the passenger seat of an S-3). He also became the subject of Karl Rove's man crush, paving the way to W's brilliant political career.Originally posted by: winnar111
George Bush didn't organize Vietnam protests. George Bush didn't try to cut funding to our troops. George Bush didn't go to a church full of race baiters who bash this country. George Bush didn't try to stop kids from reciting the pledge. George Bush didn't claim that he's not proud of America.
Life's not fair! :laugh:
