Those Rotten Americans. 
13th-Dec-2007 07:00 am
Al Gore continues to lead the parade of those who know better than Americans what America ought to do, especially if he can get those who don't have, but want, power over what Americans do on his side.

Think I'm exaggerating? Check it out.

The basic point is always the same: those on the hard Left hate America, no matter where they are in the world.

What? I thought you didn't like lefties. Why are you then defending them from my criticism? Aren't you the one who said that they hate america?

I personally wouldn't be opposed to neighborhood watches doing the same. Of course, I am of the opinion that if we're going to emulate any European country, it should be Switzerland. (in terms of how armed the populace is and how militarized, anyway)

Sorry for the sharp tone. I'm just starting to be convinced that we might be dealing with people who don't want to deal with reality, and I can't blame people whose brain is tricking them. I'm still thinking about this, so the conversation isn't over, and any contribution you'd care to make would be welcome.

Switzerland is a good model for an armed populace, though there have been arguments the other way. I just have a problem with the self-selection process of current volunteer nightwatches: sometimes those who are turned down by police departments still want that power.
