Disgrace used to be ugly. No one would welcome it and busted their asses to avoid it.

Bush has rendered disgrace on America.

He has destroyed all credibility the country had. He's ruined the world's opinion about how America treats people.

If you're an American, most people in other countries will treat you much worse than they would have 10 years ago. An American is a pariah. I don't give a shit about where you stand politically, you are judged by Bush.

You are your country and you are disgraced. Live with that sad fucking fact.

The US will invade and occupy a foreign country preemptively, it will kill innocent people, it will bring down the financial structures of other countries, it will kidnap, it will hold people without charges and without a right to trial in secret prisons, it will spy on its own citizens, it will torture people, it will bully other countries, it will violate all the principles upon which it was founded.

Don't know about you, but I'm fucking proud to be an American.


H/T Ted Compton. He got me to thinking about this.
