I have been offline for a while but want to respond to your last post to me. Your response was an attempt to change the subject and has nothing to with the topic that was being discussed.
You make a post about the evils of patriotism and then tell the world a story about the trama in your life. No one here has accepted your invitation to listen to your personal stories. Go to Facebook where maybe some cares.
Do you think you are the only person that had to overcome obstacles raising a family? Do you think you are the only parent who has lost a child? Do you think you are the only parent that has had to deal with a special needs child?
Despite you wanting to tell the world what a superior parent you are my original point stands. I can only have pity for your children and grandchildren if you taught them that patriotism was all about a” f*ck you” position which is exactly what you said in your post.
