Okay America. Time to grow some balls, quit acting all entitled and start looking for that "Made in the USA" label on everything.
But, if Rye sees any racism in that line from that poem, which, I assume, is why she calls the National Anthem "problematic", I don't interpret it that way. By referring to both the "hireling" (meaning the British military) and the slave (meaning former slave), the author of the poem is making no distinction between the two. He's not singling out the slave for scorn, or for more scorn than the "hireling". So I don't see any racism in that line and so I don't see what Rye thinks is "problematic" about the National Anthem. Seems to me that the author of the poem was merely noting the presence of slaves among those who died in the attack on Ft. McHenry. I also don't see where war, or death, is being glorified there. He's merely describing the successful defense of an American military installation against the destruction, or takeover, of it. If that's glorifying war, or death, every war movie would be a glorification of war or death. Maybe, to a pacifist, it would be. But I would respectfully disagree with them.
UGH Less Iron Man More Spider-Man!!! I saw homecoming last night... Just remembered...
Religion is good for keeping the masses under control. It keeps many who have a tendency to murder, kill, rape and steal from doing so. It populates the world.
I don't know how to get umlauts on this tablet!
None of them were stamp collectors, either. I see a pattern here. . . .
Nope, I was just explaining how one can claim they aren't a sinner. Muslims consider you an infidel. Are you an infidel?
Perhaps more important than these successes, however, is the reinvigoration of America?s patriotic sense of self, which the rise of Donald Trump has awakened. Our country is being reconnected to our founding principles, the values that made America the greatest country in the world, and in doing so, is coming to understand just how destructive the last few decades of elite leadership have been to our freedom, prosperity, and safety.
not usually. What kind of food are they talking about?
PUT YOUR CLOTHES BACK ON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I?m arguing that you are absolutely correct. The dang legislature has no business telling anyone they can?t kill anyone.
