Ben Franklin also said “he that would live in peace and ease, must not speak all he knows, nor judge all he sees" . so as you throw your'police state' labels around - realize that you are a pampered middle class american kid that has only seen 1% of the world and the best part of the world at that . but more specifically, Red White Blue Pride – what imaginary place do you have pride in ? You ever lived in 1776 or will you live in 2076 ? Were you proud of the USA in 1988 - were things done right back then ? 'Cause you know, Crow doesn't think things's been going right since 1913 , way before the mighty Gaylord in your avatar could spear his commie archenemy. In fact Crow does not think that the USA and the USSR are any kinds of opposites at all, as they were controlled by the same puppeteers. It was just a show for 70 years, give or take. So as you are not proud of the government, the police, the media or the blind sheep we call the American public, what is it you’re proud of - your local diner and your personal interpretation of the constitution ?
