I am terribly biased, short-sighted, overly patriotic, blind to The Others--but I love the hell out of this country. I get angry when we do dumb or stupid or crass things but overall, we have done more good in the world than any country to date. Prove me wrong on this! (yes, we have done some harm etc)
