It matters because we were arguing aboutr whether Patton's values would be good for America. I say nay.
Patton's values would be excellent for the USA. Patton's character would not be the best thing for every American to posses. And it is a completely different matter if you are speaking of General Patton or Lieutenant Patton. They are two completely different people. But, Patton aside, is America (overall) in a good spot?
1. General Patton, Sr.
2. I repeat what I said earlier. America is currently in a good state. Race has become less and less an issue in people's lives and racism has ceased to be socially acceptable anywhere. Women have moved into every realm of society and this is accepted almost everywhere with little comment. There is much more equal opportunity in education, employment, and housing. There is general agreement on the right to a dignified old age, guaranteed by the government. America has been, generally, a force for good in foreign affairs. I, in no way, will deemphasize the fact that changes still need to be made. However, many good changes have been made, and for that I am grateful and proud.
I meant Patton in WWI (when he was taking orders) or Patton in WWII (giving them)
Dark MaulI wouldn't pin the countries troubles on the supreme court. I think that the media is a large part of the problem. Everything is so dang political nowadays that it is tough to get a straight story.
Ditto. This country is run by huge media conglomerates and corporate America.
3 major conglomerates own most of the media. They decide what most of America sees, and where their attention is focused. It's bad, but at least we have the internet! I think they count for somewhat of a monopoly, so they should be broken up.
