as readers know i don't refer much to patriotism in this blog. for instance my arguments for defeating terrorist pussies (with violence if needs be) are based not on patriotism but on preserving human rights, freedom, justice, and democracy. ( in contrast , peaceniks believe peace is worth any cost, even cost of human rights, freedom, justice, and democracy.)
however that does not mean i oppose patriotism.
we should and can be justly proud of our country especially after what happened during last year in the fight against terrorists. so let us fly the flag and give thanks to the military today.
was working hard and traveling last few days so sort of lost touch with sl blogosphere. will be back to blogging soon (hopefully tomorrow)
