For the sake of argument I'll accept what you say as the truth, even
though I personally don't care how happy the rest of the world is.
We will see how happy they are when we are no longer capable of being
the worlds police because our government has wussified our military to
the point of being fearful of most others while the radical muslims
are free to terrorize these "happy" people at will.
No, I just don't buy into the "American Exceptionalism" that you seem
to believe makes America superior to the rest of the world.
There's no doubt that the US had a key role in winning WWI and WWII.
Since then, the US record has been spotty, to say the least. Particularly
in the 21st century.
But, you are an avowed republican, so you'll ignore everything counter
to the 21st century republican ethos as some "liberal nonsense".
Talk about head in the sand.

Whichever way that people think about the supposed arrogance of the

be right there to help us in time of great strife.
I did play HS and semi-pro football and not sure about concussions, but
on the bus home after a game, I did have to ask a team mate "who won the
game?". Other than that, the only injuries I sustained were a broken
neck, various broken fingers, cleat gouges clear to the shin bones and
dislocated shoulders. Ah, those were he days...

Never played tackle, played touch football bare footed "in the street".
Sometimes a touch is all it took to crash and burn on the gravel on
asphalt surface. In hind site that was probably worse than being
tackled on grass.
