I think it's interesting that in an american appreciation thread, people feel the need to criticize us for loving our country. Near as I can tell, the title of this thread isn't "Do you love america?" So all I can say is that if you don't have something nice to say, don't say it. Why would you bother posting in this thread if you didn't have something nice to say? Jealous? Insecure? You love your country? Great!! Why not start a Canada appreciation thread, or Australia, or whatever country you are from. That would be the appropriate thing to do.

oh, don't you remember? you made it clear that an appreciation thread for a person isn't allowed on interference forums. i seem to remember a time when i made such a thread and you negatively mentioned it about ten, twelve years later...

Of course... You must not have read my disclaimer, or 'Purpose' of starting such a thread.. Anyways.. It cleared up any such words above.. However it is now gone, as the humor and genius (Hahaha.) of the Thread was not fully realized.. such Wasted Potential... Hahah, Ah Well..


God Bless America,

Meaning what? I assume you missed the point of the rest of my post. Maybe you were to busy shaking it.
