No But most of your suggestions for improvement to a nation you dont even live in are.
Passion is necessity. It is not diligence, or simply being committed to a goal. Passion consumes you while you chase down your goal. Passion should always be your natural state of mind for it is what sparks momentum and sets the pace.

Yeah well I asked you to stop lumping all Americans in the category of George W. and you could not follow those simple instructions so I dont have to follow yours pal.
Cheers,
Dawn

I voted as well, but that doesn't excuse the fact that this is stupid.

Well,I guess I can break my own rule too.

I believe that Islamic infusion and the profusion of mosques in America is a good thing. There is much greater depth in Islamic culture than in the crass shallowness of American culture.

Lanky, you're SOOO worldly , NOT! Easy to critize a place you'll NEVER live!

Hmm? Let's see....It's ok (In your fucikin' tweety bird sized brain) to lump all Americans as having 'G ' Bushes' views/actions; yet you stand upon your fanciful mineret EVERY time someone denounces anything Muslim?!

F'kin hypocrite, go get some education and come back here when you ACTUALLY HAVE A F'KIN CLUE!

A fear based hyper-cultic bullshit proposition? Care to elaborate on the meaning of this tediously worded question, Lanky? An explanation from you might give us all a better idea of what you mean and why you mean it.

To sidetrack, you say you are from Canada. Whereabouts incidentally? Are you originally from Canada? I ask you this, as I would like you to point out what you consider to be the fundamental differences between Canadian and American society. Do you hate Canada too?

Where can I get one of those? It sounds so neat.

NO

The fact that there are more than one yes suggest multiple votes by one person

"Is America a fear-based hyper-cultic bullshit proposition?"

No, America is not a proposition. It is a place. It is not particularly fear based. In fact, if anything, it is the opposite. Some places are hyper, New York, for example. There are a few cults here and there, but very few people are in them. As far as bullshit goes, well, yes, there is quite a lot of that. But I've never been any place where there wasn't. Bullshit seems to have more to do with the species than nationality.
