jealousy

I think most of what's wrong with America stems from plain old jealousy. We are like the Russian peasant who prayed not that he have a goat of his own but that his neighbor's goat should die. This whole two minute hate on the AIG executives is an example. Instead of worrying about what someone at AIG makes you ought to be upset about the national service bill that passed in the Senate. We're so busy hating on the accomplished, the smart and the people who did what was nessacary to get ahead that we're not even noticing what the hell is happening to our country.

Our Lady of America, pray for your wicked, perverted children.

I think there's a lot of truth in what you say about my neighbour nation to the north (I live in Canada, south of Detroit - almost no one can figure that out but it's true).
