    So the first volume of Mr. Clemens' autobiography is about to be published after 100 years of sitting in a vault in Berkeley, CA. Why did he want to wait so long before publishing it? One possibility is that he was concerned that expressing his true views would have hurt his public image. Based on the following, Failin' Palin would have been all over this guy. Move over Steinbeck, let's get Twain out of the curriculum!

    I LOVE the United States of America. As do you. But you prefer to focus upon what is wrong with our country and I don't.

    Regardless, there is no country on this earth that has more people who WANT to come here than ours.

    Figure that one out Strud.....:rocker:

    And swallow this whole...

    We will remain a capitalist nation for the remainder of your life. You don't like? Too bad! :D

    Not if you're a migrant laborer or subsistence wages worker. Unless you equate opportunity with making just enough money to get by.

    This seems pretty simple to me...

    Patriotism = Loving your country.
    I love America.
    He says Patriotism = scoundrel
    Scoundrel = Han Solo
    Han Solo = Awesome
    Therefore, if we do the math, I think we can all agree and come to the same conclusion:
    I am awesome.

    You're focusing upon illegal labor from Mexico. Who cares about people who come here illegally anyway?

    How about the REASON why so many want to come here legally. As you stated, MONEY is a big reason. And why are so many immigrants successful once they arrive here no matter what color they are?

    I have friends from Liberia (and of course, they are black) and many of them have flourished since they arrived. What do they know that others don't? One thing they don't let stand in their way is the color of their skin.

    except for the government-owned insurance giant and auto sector

    I thought last week we were socialists :confused3:

    Or, we can just admit we're a mixed economy, if in fact we're the slightest bit concerned about the meanings of words.

    Actually (mark this date down), you're right and I was wrong. We are in fact a mixed economy. But when I think SOCIALIST, I think Europe and I think Karl Marx.

    And the reason is because the US and Europe are nothing alike when compared on an economic, social and gov't level. We are night & day. American attitudes and values are much different than Europes. We are more self-reliant on all levels.

    USA > Europe:rocker:

    When I think of Europe, I think of a bunch of different places. You can't say "Europe is this way..." any more than you can say "America is this way..." There is Norway, and then there is Albania. There is Massachusetts, and then there is Arizona. Europe cannot be monolithically defined any more than America can be.

    But let's play...Europe is no less self-reliant than we are. We are a welfare state on many levels from trailer parks to board rooms. Our government can't solve even the most important issues that are critical to our survival. There is oil leaking uncontrolled in the Gulf and no one is doing anything about it! Our laws are selectively enforced, our corporations exist for the benefit of their officers and shareholders...and no one gives a second thought about bombing the daylights out of an innocent village or country halfway across the world. We are in debt up to our eyeballs! We are fat, sick, lazy, and ignorant (not me, just the rest of youz). A little humility, a lot less sugar, gadgets and drugs, and a whole lot of honest self-examination is all we need. Who wants to start?....

    ...hello?....anyone out there?.....
