TODAY is the Fourth of July.
And you might get asked this question, as I was this morning.
Here's my response:
I am Patriotic, in the way that anyone who has an understanding of history, and the ideals which were
held by the Founders of America is patriotic.
I detest the extreme manipulation being done now these days by politicians, and hollywood film makers.
And I like even less the uninformed idiots who say: "America is the greatest country in the world,"
without understanding anything of the world and America's place in it, and what truly made America great.
Here's a wonderful rant:
The Newsroom: "America Isn't The Best" Speech
Aaron Sorkin, who also wrote The West Wing, wrote that for his new TV show, The Newsroom.
That rant points to the true (mostly lost) greatness of a once-truly-great country.
