    that's engaging in destructive behavior, calling them out on it and encouraging them to clean up their act doesn't mean you hate them -- in fact, it means you love them so much you want them to be the best they can be. If you didn't give a shit you'd just let them keep doing the bad shit they're doing.

    Americans of the "my country right or wrong" stripe are more like enablers in a relationship with someone addicted to drugs or alcohol, always making excuses for that bad behavior and not encouraging them to improve.

    Now to try to end the wars we ask our gay and straight soldiers to fight. -- Chris Hayes (modified)
