God Bless America.
Yeah, I seriously just felt like saying it.
wait, do you mean god bless us cause we're awesome or god bless us cause we need help? just want to know...
Ill second that. Sure its not perfect, but who is.
Time to go listen to some Lee Greenwood.
Frankly I don't think it matters Skunk. I think it's at the point where any god that's willing to chip in is welcome with open arms.
Is Gozer coming back? I thought the boys did away with her in the original film? She always was a sexy minx. So welcome back, Gozer, and thanks for the blessings! Line for loyal minions forms on the right.
Shouldn't that be the left?
No, all Babylonian deities associated with death and destruction draw their followers from the right. I give the present events surrounding the old city as proof.
Saw those words on a bumper sticker the other day, and thought to myself, "Is that a request or a demand?"
but.....there is no god so who can bless america then
Yeah, um... I don't think it worked. Maybe we're praying to the wrong God. Or maybe he just hates us. Not that I'd blame him, considering.
What about the rest of us? Don't we matter too? Oh, no that's right we don't.
I would like to quote Jon Stewart. When asked by a Canadian what Americans really think of them, his reply - "we don't". I believe the word is myopic.
On current evidence god has saved the queen though.....Maybe you're just asking too much? Perhaps it could be toned down for a monarch or celebrity of sorts?
How 'bout we just ask him to stop trying to smite us?
I met a lot of myopic people during my 12 years in the States than.
I would think it would be hard not to.
I keep bumping into them too. Maybe I need new glasses.
god bless america...and god bless the world...i am quite ok with that
but these days, some people think god bless america means "god bless the right wing of the republican party"
"God bless America" really came into the lexicon with Irving Berlin's song of the same name, especially after it was hugely popularized by Kate Smith during the late 1930s. I wonder how many people pay attention to the lyrics anymore.
It always seemed to me that these words are a plea for divine guidance, not a presumption that America is a specially blessed place. But I have an idea that the meaning has changed for many people to something less like the former and more like the latter. So when I see these words plastered on the back of a car, I do ask myself whether the person who placed it there meant it as a boast or an aspiration.
Funny how the Supreme Court announces:
"Oi yea oi yea...God Save the United States and the Supreme Court"
from the people who ruled church and state must be seperate, makes no sense to me how we can have "Under god" come under fire but not the Supreme Courts own minutes?
Why does god have to be brought into this.. isn't god busy making butterflies land on a retarded boy's head?
what is this in reference to? it has confused and delighted me.
