    My favoritest thing ’bout Murka is a cherished memory of what it USED to be. As for the reality of today . . . not so much.

  2. Angel says:

    hey Z..I will fish u out of spam don’t worry..lol πŸ™‚ HAPPY ST PATTYS DAY my friend! xoxoxox

  3. The First Amendment — although it has been horribly eroded now.

  4. Kid says:

    The Bill of Rights

  5. As an outsider, I can experience America through her exports so, probably Ray Charles πŸ™‚

  6. jerrydablade says:

    America is certainly not our government we have become saddled with. America is still the idea of God-given freedom.

  7. Silverfiddle says:

    Roots music. It’s history, and how we’re appreciating it and playing it today.

  8. FB says:

    I am so proud to be one of its citizens. I admire its constitution. I love its landscapes. The greatest human experiment in world history. I could go on and on.

  9. Silverfiddle says:

    @ FB: Often, it takes an immigrant to truly wax poetic about America, and to provide concrete reasons why this nation is so great.

    I am also a fan of our landscapes, east to west, north to south. We live in a beautiful, vast and wonderfully diverse nation.

    I know SF. I always think of moving because of that. I understand why people get RVs here πŸ™‚ I could see myself in one and travel everywhere for a couple of years and work remotely using 4G and my laptop. But Mrs. FB wouldn’t like that lifestyle πŸ™‚

    Bocopro; I’m mostly with you on this one. Until 10 years ago, I guess until 9/11?, we felt so safe, so optimistic, things always straightened out. Not anymore. Not after the division brought (or wrought) by Obama….and some characterless Republicans

    I brought his up B E C A U S E:

    When Obama introduced Merrick Garland in the Rose Garden, he mentioned his hobbies…one of which was visiting National Parks around America.

    Dennis Prager, whom I usually admire, said something like this the next morning “Only liberals list national parks as a reason to love America…I’ll bet NO Republicans would ever list that FIRST….but I know that you can barely find an answer out of a Liberal about why he or she loves America” (which could be, and probably is, true)

    Of course, Prager was dead wrong…none of us would list NATURAL BEAUTY as THE first thing we love about America… But I didn’t think it was fair of Prager to say what he did; Obama only was listing HOBBIES, he never said Garland’s first or only thing he loved about this country was that.!!

    So, SOME OF YOU DID MENTION THIS, but only after listing other things.
    SF…ROOTS MUSIC, your number one favorite thing about America?!

    Great answers, everybody; think Prager was right?

    angel; I did go to Spam again, which I don’t mind, thanks for getting me out of there.
    But at least it doesn’t tell me your blog is TECH TOXIC to me anymore with the red and white page and warnings of..”STOP!!…blahblah”
    Thanks.

    Just saw this tidbit about Michelle Obama ..she said recently that”the thing she’ll miss the most is interacting with the different people she meets from across the country. When asked if she would ever run for president, the first lady said there won’t be another President Obama any time soon. .”
    And the luxury, I’m thinking? “interacting” or stirring things up?
    And thank GOD there won’t be another president Obama any time soon……hopefully NEVER.

    Then there’s Obama looking for money to be spent on him after the presidency.
    SURPRISE!!! (not)

  15. FB says:

    I forgot football. American football in my list. I love the game, the history of the game, the logos, etc… I was an avid soccer player in my youth but it saddens me to see more and more soccer in the US, even though it’s a great sport when played to attack. (And not like the French play it i.e. not to take any goals.)

  16. geeez2014 says:

    FB…you think Zitadine played for NO GOALS??

  17. Mustang says:

    I agree with FB and Jerry … I love America, I hate the government. They are not Americans.

  18. geeez2014 says:

    The more I hear “God given freedom,” the more I believe it…the contexts make more and more sense. The lack of those freedoms, as perpetrated by the Left (no choices allowed because Americans are too stupid, EXCEPT to they can choose to kill their unborn children) is so stifling….It’s clear that it’s freedoms from GOD that we’ve enjoyed as long as earthly man followed the tenets of God. Since we haven’t, those gifts of freedom are leaving us (what to think, what to say, what to drink, what to believe, what to….fill in the blank). And the left thinks ITS the kind of freedom?
    Freedom to lose all we have, freedom to lose jobs, healthcare, freedom to be utterly insulted for not agreeing with them?

    Mustang….do you think we CAN get back to an AMERICAN GOVERNMENT?

    Do you think coalitions could work better, as they are implemented in Germany, France, etc.?

  19. FB says:

    The French national team of that time was different from the one today and I was speaking more of the French championship.

  20. FB says:

    Coalitions in France are easier because they’re all statists. Chirac was left leaning despite being on the right.

  21. geeez2014 says:

    FB….you think French soccer’s gone soft then? What did you mean by “not to take any goals”…that’s ridiculous, isn’t it??!!

    I think coalitions are less easy because they actually do try, and usually succeed, at making coalition goals work, don’t you? At least major groups TRY to work together, or do I have that wrong in France, anyway?
    Chirac definitely was left leaning…I was there for his last election and couldn’t believe the people looked at him as Conservative.

  22. geeez2014 says:

    Am watching some of the coverage of the captured muslim who is responsible for having participated in the horrible Paris killings.
    I keep thinking “He’s lucky the French didn’t get him”…but maybe Belgium is as tough?
    The French don’t have to worry; I believe they CAN waterboard if they want to. Or anything else.
    Am I wrong, FB? Let me know. xx

  23. Baysider says:

    That our rights are granted by God, and merely protected by men. We’ve completely lost sight of any concept of responsibility to God as good stewards of His prerogatives, whether it’s the body politic or environment. Too busy fighting over who gets to sit on His throne.

    The fabulous concept of separation of powers, of perpetually setting power hungry men against each other, guarding their powers from being co-opted by others, and, hence, guarding us from a monolithic state. Brilliant! Nice while it lasted.

    The Electoral College – also brilliant!

    The Bill of Rights, especially 1, 2, 9, and 10.

    Securityas the storm clouds gather far across the sea…. No more alas, especially thanks to Obama’s feckless policies at the border and forced self-immolation of the military.

    The ‘can do’ spirit and general optimism of the nation as a whole. Also fading.

    The natural beauty. Also fabulous, but most special in its bejeweled setting of the rights, privileges and moral clarity that were once the beacons of this nation.

  24. geeez2014 says:

    Baysider, thanks. I really was surprised at Prager’s silliness condemning Obama for mentioning Garland liked the National Parks…Prager saying “isn’t it typical that’s all they can think of about America to love?” Ridiculous.
    Some guy called in and so echoed my own thoughts, exactly in detail, it almost freaked me out! πŸ™‚

  25. geeez2014 says:

    FB….after having lived in Paris, my gut feelings I got there were right: I’m hearing all over the media that the French are very VERY good at interrogation …my surmisal is their hands aren’t tied as much by political correctnessl

  26. FB says:

    The French soccer championship have a lot of teams that play for the tie and not to lose instead of playing for the win and putting on a show. They seem like they walk on the pitch.

    As far as interrogating, I don’t know but I wouldn’t be surprised. I was explaining to an acquaintance that the focus of Americans on continuous and self improvement sometimes gets in the way. They always want to be a better people, hence the PCness or the guilt. French don’t worry about that stuff as much.

  27. geeez2014 says:

    FB…but why don’t they want to WIN at soccer? What happened to them? It used to be WIN OR SUFFER, right? And that was so much fun…I don’t get it.

    And you are SO RIGHT on continuous self improvement, which has got us NOWHERE but PC and guilt and RIDICULOUS degeneration!!!

  28. Imp says:

    After 911, Fast & Furious, the IRS scandal, the VA murders, Benghazi, Libya, ISIS, Syria, Immigrants and illegal migrants, a 19 trillion debt, a presidential candidate under investigation by the FBI……I have zero faith in this government or this country to protect us, defend us or do anything but swirl down the bowl.

  29. Kid says:

    There it is IMP

  30. Imp says:

    And seeing as how all this scheisse happened under the most racist , divisive POS dung for a POTUS….we’re not finished with considering another one…a female version of Whitey Bulger….a criminal just the same.
