We may not like it and speak freely against those...but some even risked their lives to preserve the rights of those with that negative energy...and despite the underhanded dealings of those in power that may have other goals in mind.

True patriots accept there are other opinions and allowed in the open is what guides us to the better solutions. Agreement isn't required, but listening and hearing sometimes though distasteful is part of our heritage.

And you are not an outsider, neither is anyone who believes in basic human freedoms. All countries have patriots...those that believe either in why their country was founded or where it took turns for the better.


Very well said psneed.

This is very profound for me. Thanks. Now what the hell did you eat for breakfast? I'd like to switch to it.

Unfortunately as stated...probably won't change much because of the almighty dollar.
You're right that there is no downside, no reason not to make the change.

Not to worry. I'm sure the media is busy "investigating." LOL
