Thoughts on America Today


                  The American Armada

Blazing across navel skies, the fleets go forth

vessels of a long-destroyed foreign threat

Beating into a melodramatic liberty

Threatened by a seized nation

             Standing on one leg,

             Scratching its capped head.


Ever on guard, ever faithful fool,

            gun in hand, gum in mouth


Defending the present revolution,  up

holding the past, speaking out against

The atrocious practices of an uncivilized

War, sponsored by the enemies

off Freedom's Shores, the master minds

behind the barbaric subjection

of our forefathers

the upholding of our favorite

       Movie Star

shining forth in all her glory

for the preservation of

Our grand and glorious Republic


The eternal beauty of a sacred lie.

Hmm. This is controversial.
I have to say that your words hold some truth.
I like it.

Well done.

Our nation is still standing strong and many people coming into it from other countries find that out. We shall always stand and fight for our rights and God has great hope for America. God Bless You All and Peace come too.

You really love America, huh?
Reviewed by Reginald Birch (Reader) 11/14/2004
A nation’s honesty to its own self, liberty for free speech, ability to listen to the other point of view, end ‘we know what is best for you’ mentality, these are a few of the qualities that makes a grand nation great.

A few thoughts for any nation, including my own.

Have you no shame?
Reviewed by Ed Matlack 11/13/2004
Propaganda is the previous reviewer, if you or he don't like the country for what it is or isnt, LEAVE...Ed
