Not quite and you really shouldn't compare me to your immediate family.
You don't know me that well.

It already happens. Move along, nothing new here.

I consider you to be nothing more than 10,000 monkeys typing
simultaneously in the Google cloud and what I see is the result of their
proprietary click algorithms.

Sorry, I have nearly died half a dozen times in close calls. My world

My position is my own and I said as much. I don't particularly like

Ask away. I can't spend 24 hours a day in front of a computer, since I
have to make a living.

Again, I consider everyone on this list to be nothing more than groups of

F**King with it means attacking it and deliberately violating it in an
attempt to destroy the country that is defined by it.

I don't consider (in my opinion) that allegiance and upholding it are the

No, I think running into a burning compartment, and dogging the hatch
behind you in order to help fight the fire and save your comrades as a
true measure of ones citizenship. This is only developed in people who
have gone through some sort of training that develops discipline and team
work. Part of that training is rigid review and purposeful diligence to
paying attention. I have never seen a lawyer, computer hacker, sanitation
worker exhibit these abilities unless they have gone through some sort of
discipline training. This country (U.S.A.) is a team effort, and those
people who are trained to work as a team, approach it as such. The loners
and/or the arrogant egotists try to tear it down in order to build
themselves up (or they join email lists to try to show everyone else how
much smarter they are. They don't have a life or relationships outside of
their email lists and is the only way to build themselves up). Both of
these character traits are either replaced by learned team work or they
are dismissed as untrainable in a disciplined training environment.

Standing watch on my countries warship, designed to kill enemies foreign
or domestic that may try to destroy my country that is defined by it's
constitution, is honoring my sworn commitment to uphold the constitution.
Arresting an armed felon after racing high-speed through crowded streets
and not pummeling him into a bloody mess, is honoring my sworn commitment
to uphold the constitution (specifically it's 4th, 5th, and 14th
Both of these examples are only possible through discipline and team work.
Any other examples are academic and are left to the reader.
Now let the monkeys begin typing furiously!
