Team America: World Police. That turkey rated puppet movie says it all, as does this cartoon.

America(Bushco. Inc and fiends) force their democracy on a world that says they do not want to be like “Westerners”. Maybe other countries might embrace democracy if America set a good example of how things used/might be here, rather than the way Bush/Cheney have dictated it should be in their narrow, twisted views of what they call reality.

You cannot bring freedom to other people in the world while at the same time continue to take away the freedoms of your own people.

Or, like the joke about the mama cat and the baby cat. Mama cat says to the baby, if you can’t eat it, can’t screw it, piss on it. If the boot fits!

I’ve got family stuck on Auto Patriotism - jingoism by any other name. As if it’s a virtue to blindly praise God and country no matter the size of the pile of lies, bodies or expense.

They tout self reliance, yet benefit most from social programs - and hey, I’m not against that, they paid into it - but still. Then they bitch about the price of gas, yet are incapable of managing anxiety without driving it out on roadways. Start talking responsibility to power, truth to lies, and their angst skyrockets to defensive anger. Then back on the roadways they go.

I’m not a religious man but one would think that those on Auto Patriotism could use their God-given power of reason and rational thought to see that what they cheerlead ain’t matching what’s doled.

How true.

Uniforms, “enemy” death counts like scores at a basketball game, lies, secrecy, hidden barbarism.

The world has gone mad - again.
