Thank you.I watched the Bill Maher dialogue and wanted to acknowledge and thank you for the link.

Living in a far right, drunk on religion city, where psychotic flag waving is mandatory (many flags made in China, might I add)I like it when people think for themselves. While the left and right mentally m*sturb*te, the ptb and their puppet (the prez)along with 535 go about selling their core values for money.

The late George Carlin nailed a politician during a Press Club Luncheon. Skip to 10:45 to begin. This is brilliant.

George Carlin - National Press Club [complete]skip to 10:45 to begin this brilliant speech


U.S.A. was NEVER the greatest country in the world.Sometimes i wonder,are you americans even listening to your selfs when you speak about your country???No ofense realy but,dod'nt you realise how ridiculous you sound??Siriously,i dod'nt know what to do when i hear-read you guys!Laugh or cry?Your country is a "baby" in human history with only,how long,2 or 3 handred years of history or something like that,and the only thing it offered to the rest of the world so far was wars and suffering,and you act and speak like you are the bigest benefactors or something.America is the spoiled child of Europe.Nothing more!!Get out of the brainwash your goverments do to you and realise it!Finaly!Ok,i understand that you need reasons to feel proud about your nation,but you must also face the truth and actualy do something about it,sometime... :-/

P.S. To turn off your TVes and playstations would be a good start...and then throw the freaking guns out of your homes...and stop eating all these humbergers and junkfood all the time!Make your own gardens!The ancient Greeks used to say:"Healthy minds exist into healthy bodies." Jeff also forgot to say that America is first also to fat people...

I read all these comments here and know I am playing to a hard audience, but what I sense from the comments from the 3rd world "developing nations" are cultural and materialistic envy of a nation that succeeds on so many levels its too long to list here. The reason your countries are still ignorant hell-holes overcome with religious terrorists or narco-gangs is the good people in your countries do not have the backbone needed to band together and defeat them unless you ask for help from the USA. Criticizing the USA won't make your countries (you know who you are) seem greater in comparison.

What I sense from some Americans comments are leftist liberal mindsets that think denigrating their own country by cherry-picking criticisms makes them seem somehow elitist, for a short while. Just remember it was knuckle-draggers like me that kept your 1st Amendment right secure all these years, and be thankful you weren't born in a country that would spirit you away at midnight for being such a whinging twat towards your own country.

For you (like the gentleman above) who simply type whines about the USA without any facts to substantiate your comments, begone. You are irrelevant.

The next time an earthquake hits Haiti, or a huge tidal wave rips into Indonesia, or a massive tidal wave submerges Tacloban, or an Ebola epidemic hits Africa who are you going to call to rescue you with massive amounts of aid, much of it offered from the decks of equally massive aircraft carriers and helicopters that no-one else seems to have handy when it's most needed? Which country came to stop the genocide in Kosovo? Which country is doing what it can to stop the genocide in Iraq? Commie China? Russia? Egypt? Saudi? Somalia? WHO? You only have one choice! And if there were no USA to rescue your miserable skins, do you think...Spain would step up to fill the need? Mexico? Sweden?

While self-righteous armchair critics sit back and poke at the USA, we are still exploring outer space, plumbing the worlds deepest oceans, inventing medical cures and giving more to charity than any other nation you can name on planet Earth! (Some of our helicopters going into Aceh to feed and clothe your waterlogged citizens even got SHOT AT! WTF?)

I am of the mindset that the USA should stop funding the United Nations and eject all you ungrateful freeloaders off our shores, including the latest ELEVEN MILLION of you who crept in illegally and we just can't kick back out. You KNOW who you are! Go Home!

If the USA was anywhere near as bad as this speech says, then WHY are millions still risking their lives to get IN and not OUT?

Agreeing with this films premises doesn't make you a social scientist. A broader view of where the USA has been and the potential for where it is going is needed.

And sacrifice. I wonder if the writer of that speech or that actor ever served his country and believed in something greater than himself to the point he was willing to risk his life for it. Unless he has, his words would ring untrue to me for that reason alone.

[From Blogger Brian: Yes, I can handle the truth. But I can't handle the link you included with your previous comment.

Looks weird to me. And the web site is in Greek, as is the link you submitted below. If somebody wants to follow those links, go ahead. They're not for me, and I'm not recommending them to anybody.]

Why you din't published my answer to the nonesence the last guy comments???
Can't you handle the truth???

There are links with documents inside in Elnglish.
All you have to do is to put a litlle effort...
There is also the google translate...
But yea...i'm asking to much from you now,right?In a mysterious way,when other people must understand you guys then it's normal for them to put effort.But when you have to do the same...then..."forget about it".
The last guy wrote a lot of nonesence wich can easily be answered...if i could speak good english,but i can't so that's why i sent the link.So some people can see the real picture of what is happening.
It's more and less the same situation on all over the world.None of us humans is actually free.All we have is the illusion of freedom.Do a researce about the world trust and the world bank.And what was agreed between the allies after the world war 2 at the Bretton Woods agreement.And then ask your self why they put countries into fake depts...

One thing that makes America great is that it is perfectly fine for people to be so eager and joyous to say it isn’t.
Many things the character says are true but it’s a ruse. Like many of the movies and TV series, the true agenda is hidden. He’s not taking the blame for the state of our nation. He’s blaming the rest of us. But, if it were up to us, it would still be the same or better. Liberals want the change and then complain when their changes don't work out better for anyone including them.
The problem is the writers of this series are of the same mindset as the professors who are teaching our kids to lean toward socialism and atheism. The only thing that has changed in this country is that it has become more socialistic and more godless. Socialist professors don’t like free enterprise and atheists definitely don’t believe in God given rights. So the fundaments of this country are at odds with the hippie-dippie generation that blames everyone, including America itself, for everything that is not perfect enough for them.
They are the ones who teach our children we’re a slave nation, like it was invented here and still exists. There was always slavery everywhere by every human since the beginning of mankind until the United States and Great Britain ended it around the world… And still maintain the daunting futile task of slavery abatement in parts of Africa and Asia. They teach our kids the British solders attempted genocide on Native Americans with germ warfare a century before anyone knew what a germ was. And all the anti-America lies and deceit are perfectly fine an unchallenged. The character in the TV series said America wasn’t the only country that had freedom and listed other free countries but never said America was the first country to have true freedom and the reason all the others also obtained true freedom and he failed to mention that these countries would not have kept their freedom had America not entered into two world wars.
America is not perfect but the list of ugly events portrayed in movies and schools today have been exaggerated and all things worthy have been hidden away. And this constant degrading dissidence is not only tolerated but accepted and maybe even applauded in America. Not so much self-contempt anywhere else around the world.
No matter how great this country once was, there were always people who chose not to think so and unlike a lot of other countries, they can get on national television or behind a university podium and say so. Unlike my ancestors who had to sneak out of a fascist country to come here, Americans can go to a better country anytime they like – if that other country will accept them. But no one sneaks out of America or sneaks into any other country like they do in America.
We have to remember TV series and movies are fiction with fictional charters playing the part of both liberals and conservatives, but, however, both parts are written by a liberal with a liberal agenda. That scene would never take place today in the real world. The question asked today by a young person would more likely be, “why is America the worst most racist county in the world?” And if a liberal panel answered how they truly feel, they would say “this country is the worst in the world because of capitalism and Christianity”.
And those are the first two things that made this country great. It’s not as good as it once was, but it’s better than anywhere else and not because of grades or data or statistics but because of us…Americans…the refugees and the persecuted and their descendants from everywhere around the world who came here legally for freedom and not just free stuff; The brave, innovative and resourceful who just needed a hammer or shovel or pushcart and the freedom to help themselves and their family.
That TV series is trying to tell us the problem with this county is the greedy businessman. It’s business that made this great country, created by great people. The truly greedy are the hoards that have done nothing great who want to take it from those who earned it and divide it among themselves… That’s not America and that’s not true freedom.
That's the truth. If you truly want your country the greatest. You have to first accept the truth. Many don't truly want either.

It's funny how the countries he listed as being free are mostly NATO members. If you’re a small European country and don’t want to spend money on defense, just join NATO and let the United States protect your freedom. Freedom is great, but it’s not cheap, it’s not easy and there will always be someone wanting to take it away from you.

Not #1 at anything? That’s laughable.

Shame on you elitists for mocking a patriotic America. Maybe his father died in World War II or served in Korea or fled a bad situation in a third world country or came her to work against their families wishes and decided to stay. Maybe it’s you that don’t understand what it means to be a patriot.

I've been many places in the world, but I still love this country the best not because I think it's perfect, but because I still think it's a great country.

Wow and you really want to know something were are not and, i think our fore fathers are rolling in there graves to see how we are now.If you haven't seen this, do it is good and by the way, i looked up the facts he quoted and there right ,dead on. What a damm shame we have come this low in our history,.I love this country and would not live anywhere else, but it is time to kick the professional politicians out of office and elect people that care about this country and that goes for Republicans and democrats. We need leadership not back room war meets about how to give what we make to others around the world,Yes feed the starving but bring our troops home and let the rest of the world take over what we have been doing all this time .It is time to rebuild this country, and stop building the rest of the world .There are many here in this country that can not feed and cloth themselves, and yet we do not seam to mind doing that for others.We need to rebuild, and if we stopped doing for all the other nations, we could put back to work ,those that need it .Yes some do not want to work but there are far more that do and that's, what we need now and in the foreseeable future,I can tell you this much if we do not take care we mite be headed to a depression that will take us 25 years to come out of.Its this time, to tell the rich to shut the fu#k up and let us run the country for awhile .I am sick and tired of being sick and tired .I do not mean the rich are bad, but they do not know what we the middle class and the poor are facing ,and if they do not wake up they will also be poor because we , and i mean we will not be able to buy the ware's and if they do not take heed ,well there mite be another revolution in there future as well, as ours.I will not be long for this earth i already no this but the kids today will be the true one's to suffer and that's , not a legacy i want to leave our kids with ,how about you.Sorry i wrote so much and forgive me i just love America so much. Here is the speech i was talking about if you care to watch it.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZPHSXUS0_1c Thank you all and may god or your higher power bless you.

We lived in Canada for eight years and moved back to the US last October. The country had changed so much for the worse we moved to the Philippines in July. It's so much better here on so many levels. It's so obvious that if you are a serious human being at all that the future of America is not a future worth having. For america to become great again would require the non-glorification of ignorance, impatience, spoiling and violence. In other words, a rejection of what has become the American way of life, which is at bottom an anticulture in purely human terms. It has achieved a stasis of irreversible decadence and intrinsic deceit. ...

Sadly many of the stats are wrong. The infant mortality rate which is a favorite among liberals is complete bull. Look into it and you will see. Even the study that produced this faulty stat points out that every country uses a different definition of a live birth. It's sad that so many people are ready to believe these political studies and so many of these that are used to inform liberal thought are produced with a built in bias toward socialism. Not that we are above criticism just that it needs to be accurate.

so which country does Jeff think is greater?

The most arrogant for sure! 😃

A little heavy on the pretentiousness

A great speech, so good they had to say it twice. Practically verbatim reproduction of the speech from Aarkin's 2006 show, Studio 60 on Sunset Strip.

Since it was his IP, I guess Aarkin felt it OK to regurgitate the content
