if you don't like it then leave. there are plenty of places you can go. France would love to have another useless citizen like you. I have fought for this country, I have lost family members. My family, like thousands of others out there have shed blood and tears so that you have the right to shut the hell up and leave.
I have seen other countries and while we are far from perfect we are still the best country and system out there.
In truth,I love this country. Sure it has it's ups and downs,but then what country doesn't? I don't care for the consumerist America,but I freakin' love the America we used to be. It's the thought of the old America that puts me to ease at night...land of the free,and home of the brave...
But whatever,I'm just a 14 year old boy who's way too darn hopeful about things aren't I?
FYI, difference of opinion is generally much more hard hitting than making a picture (ie It was just a difference of opinion between the Allies and Axis, Oswald and JFK, Bush and Saddam, or the jews and JESUS CHRIST, etc.) It's actually not pathetic at all that differences of opinion cause such harsh consequences -- it's just reality.
If someone wants my country to go to war for bullshit reasons (Weapons of mass destruction, anyone?) and I don't feel the same way, am I just supposed to ignore all of that and say "We are all one country, who cares if thousands of people -- including myself -- could die!"
This country isn't actually united at all. Shit, France and Britain are more united than some of our states.
Thank you for this. I agree. I'm already applying for my Student Visa for France. These next five years toward my French citizenship will be the longest yet most rewarding years of my life. God bless that I'm getting the fuck away from the USA, and I'm proud to, soon, not be an American.
I like your art, but man, you need to look for yourself...
The reasons behind Iraq were no BS... The nations you say are MORE UNTIED found it was not... They agreed to UN RES 1441 oh, and the lie that there was none... Well missiles shot into Kuwait were listed in UN RES 1441 AS WMD... also was the 500 chem filled shells, the chlorine gas attacks, the sulphur/nerve agent used in Iraq were ALSO wmd..... by definition..
I guess to some 500 chem shells, 3 missiles shot into Kuwait, the chem attack on troops... even as close as a month ago, are not BS...
The UN was SUPPOSED to be the ones going into Iraq.... they did not...even when the inspectors caught Iraqi military taking items out by truck over the border because they were there looking...
What will you do when a suicide bomber kills a bus load of kids going to school because they were "NOT LIKE US" aka. "Jihadist muslims" People cry about intolerence but ignore what is going on now???
Nah. I happen to disagree with the war myself. I just find it kind of pathetic people take other's opinions so personal. People don't realize that other's may think differently...most people are on a one track mind and that just gets on my nerves when they aren't open to others. I wasn't really directing my comment toward the picture...more so the comments you recieved. I'm sorry if you did take offence to that. I'm not for Bush nor for the democratic party...more or less just sick of the whole election in general. It's just another one of those things I wish went away but it's just sitting there, like a pile of shit in a pool.
Pathetic. That's why your kind lost this election: because deep inside you hate your country, and most American's don't share your self-loathing. Our country has done great things, and will continue to do so, despite the shrill and self-interested objections of countries whose sun set long ago.
Thankfully, your wallpaper, and the reacion to it by most here, has confirmed my belief that the liberal elements of this society will remain out-of-touch and therefore out-of-power.
Anyway, nice design, oil refinery is a nice subtle touch (at least I think that's what it is). While I may disagree with your politicial views, I complement you on your skills and ability to vocalize your (albiet stereotypical) views through a great piece of artwork.
Shut the hell up, and leave. You use the blanket statment that we are hicks but you yourself enjoy the freedoms that are provided by "hicks" You would be disowned by any american before you could call yourself out. Get off the media's dick.
1. I'm American 2. The blanket statement is unfair 3. We do have hicks and too many of them (a large portion of our population) 4. Our freedom isn't provided by hicks, our freedom is EARNED by the hard work of every Americans back and our soldiers (god protect them) 5. The hicks are the idiots that take that for granted because our school systems aren't good enough to instill a sense of nation pride into our people and give them some common sense. The America I used to be proud of is gone
