“Patriotism is the virtue of the vicious.” - Oscar Wilde.
Patriotism is the last refuge of the scoundrel. - Samuel Johnson
So yes, Michele, plenty of patriotism.
I totally agree.
“We, the People, recognize that we have responsibilities as well as rights; that our destinies are bound together; that a freedom which only asks what’s in it for me, a freedom without a commitment to others, a freedom without love or charity or duty or patriotism, is unworthy of our founding ideals, and those who died in their defense.”
Me and Obama got it wrong.
Your Obama quote does not describe the hateful trumps actions.
I agree. Obama was foolish on this topic. I wondered at the time if he was sincere or was just lying for political points. I hope the latter. I would hate to think he’s stupid enough to indulge in the childish idiocy of patriotism. I am a citizen of the planet Earth and I am patriotic to that planet and to the human race.
Damnit! Right again!
It only served to mask Obama’s agenda.
I agree and would take it a step further and say he is foolish on most topics.
How can you agree that Obama was foolish on that topic when a few posts ago you stated you agree with Obama on that topic? Or are you saying you’re foolish too?
If I should ever have a lapse in judgement and align myself with Obama, call me foolish.
Certainly. I often think you are foolish so this will be no trouble at all.
That was hurtful, Reggie.
Oh hush, I was just joking.
Here at Utopia, we have a counselor, Dan, and Dr Garcia, who love to play with words. The first word I learned when we arrived was “Cult*ure”, which has nothing to do with this clip. The memory was just triggered when I happened onto this video about those who rule the world. I don’t claim this video to be true in any way. In fact, it would probably go better for me if I call her a liar and suggest she is a nut case.
