I second Erotic Clown's post above. But I'll go the next step -- I do disagree with the "God Bless America" people. The implication is that God's grace should shine brighter on our country. But if we each feel that special, conflict is inevitable. The idea that Americans are somehow better -- or for that matter that any country or nationality or region or population or race or ethnic group or warrior class or whatever is better -- is what gets all of us into trouble. National and religious blinders have done more than anything to foster world conflict. And that is the legacy that George W. Bush leaves for us.
