    what "proud to be an American" meant.  I mean, nobody goes around proclaiming "I'm proud to be a Bulgarian!  Yippee!"  So I don't see how we're any different.  I had no control over being born here, and this country's done some great things, and some not so great.  So we can continue leading the charge on some progressive movements, like gay rights--which is now gaining steam worldwide.  But let's leave the "America! Fuck yeah!" junk at home, m'kay?
