Thankful to Live in the USA

This weekend I asked readers what they were thankful for. Most listed family, friends, and good health. Most also were thankful to have been born in America. In the spirit of Thanksgiving, consider this an open thread to list the reasons you are thankful that you live in the U.S.A. Don't limit it to general themes like freedom and prosperity, but feel free to get specific and list those little things that make life so sweet, too -- like Krispy Kreme.


Listed below are links to weblogs that reference Thankful to Live in the USA:

Having God's blessing to serve in the United States Army for the past 32 years so people can abuse, accuse, asperse, besmirch, curse, defame, defile, denigrate, depreciate, disparage, insult, libel, revile, slur, smear, stain, sully, taint, tarnish, tear down, vilify, and generally villainize me and my brothers & sisters, because... I have to serve them, so I might serve those who deserve and appreciate. God Bless America.

Bob Jones:

I am extremely thankful to be an American living in the USA.

Most Americans take the USA for granted in my opinion and do not understand what they have here.

I have lived in Germany for five years as a native. I learned the language, paid the taxes, and lived through the bureaucracy and red tape as a LEGAL foreigner.

Every American should live abroad as a native for two years to learn a new appreciation for the United States of America.

All this bull shit talk about how much other countries hate America is just that...bull shit.

They would move here in a heartbeat if they could.

Jealousy, plain and simple. Ever meet anyone dying to leave America (beside a Baldwin family member reneging on a promise)? No? I didn't think so!

America, the best place and the leader of the free world. Nothing can match it and based on the socialist moonbats of the world, nothing ever will.

For once, Lee, I agree with you. Including the banana milkshakes!

With all of our disagreements, where else in the world are such disgreements and discussions not only accepted but encouraged.

What a Country!
