The proper attitude toward the US

Katie Couric pisses Us off:

Katie Couric said that using "we" when referring to America makes her uncomfortable. That's stupid and I hate her. I love saying "we" when talking about America because it allows me to say lots of things that I could not say only about myself:

We are the richer and more powerful than all others.
We can destroy any country we feel like.
We landed on the moon, suckas!

America is freaking awesome. We collected the best people from all over the world into one country so we can totally rule at absolutely everything. Scientists have determined that America is by far the most awesome country they have discovered existing in the three spatial and one temporal dimensions. Who would not want to be associated with that? And it's not like rooting for some local football team, because we're all actually a part of it. That rules.

People from other countries should apologize to us for sucking so badly. Sometimes how much their countries suck interferes with our awesomeness, like Mexico. We want them to prostrate before us and say, "Oh glorious Americans, we are sorry for how much our country sucks and how it disturbs your unbelievable awesomeness."

And we can say, "That's okay. We know you're trying hard, and we will not raze your country... for now."

That's the proper order of things. It also reminds me of another pronoun I like to use: "They."

"They" is what I call all the terrorists, evil foreigners, and liberals.

The "we" implies that we might actually have a shared culture, something the multi-cult/rich liberal crowd is adamantly opposed to U.S. citizens having knowledge of. I can't believe how many Americans actually believe they don't have any culture.

It is just shows her disdain for her own culture. United we stand, divided we fall. Sadly, there are some who want to see the end of our culture, that is why we are always pushed to accept other cultures as superior all of the time.

The U.S. is the best country in the world. The best. Everyone else can keep their culture. I will do everything I can to preserve my own and pass it on to my child. We are blessed to be Americans.

I would not want to be a woman in any other place in the entire world. Especially the middle east. Such a brutal and cold culture there. Brutal and cold.

Using "we" also allows me to feel the impact of some things...

We executed a criminal today.

I think it is not just personally, but socially good to realize that the government IS us in this country.

Amen to both.

"...other countries should apologize to us for sucking so much."

Good bumper sticker material, there. You might have your fortune made if you can get it on cafe press immediately.

I can't claim credit for it, darn it!

Miriam, you want to quarrel with the Commie side of the family, forever? And with your favorite liberal bloggers?

Tztztz.

Tat: The commies and I have agreed not to discuss politics. At least, I have agreed and if they start the topic I change the subject.

Couric is a loser. But, after all, she replaced Dan Rather. Another loser. So what you expect?
