What is patriotism?
"You're just the latest reigning, vigilantes self-appointed cultural watchdogs of the moment, devoting countless hours and enviable resources to this bogus mission of stifling creative expression in the name of patriotism...It is wanton distraction, because lets just be forthright and honest about what is truly unpatriotic. Abject poverty is unpatriotic. The failure of our education system is unpatriotic. Lies told by presidents as justification for war is unpatriotic. It IS unpatriotic that elected lawmakers fail to acknowledge, let alone address, real desperation" (Bette Porter character of the L Word).
