  • I sure hope not. Not the "Americans" I know!! We are so much "classier" than everyone else remember....

  • If you don't love it, then leave it.

    I, for one, am not going to complain about my country and the values we (once!) have to ridicule as other countries ridicule us.
    This country isn't perfect and never has been.
    But before i make fun of this country, I'll refrain from hypocrisy and leave.
    Yes, I am a patriot.

  • I had this same thought yesterday. If I had enough people behind me, I would do it! Not the smashing and breaking of banks, but take to the streets, and let those who hold the "key" know we've had enough!

  • I think we're too lazy to do that at this point yet lol. I think we'll wait until the sh*t really hits the fan before any major rioting happens.

  • No. We are a nation of mindless robots who believe what the great and almight Obama tells them. We should be mad. I think rioting is uncivilized but sometimes we have to get a little uncivilized to be heard. Our government should be afraid of us instead of the other way around.
