There are some of us in America that hold self responsibility and 
conservatism to heart y'know :).  I have to agree, it seems more and more 
that the US is becoming one big Jerry Springer show.

Alas it is a comfort to me that the only way they will get mine is when 
they pry it from my cold dead fingers!  Alot of citizens of other countries 
have already lost even that.  This is also why the UN troops in the US is 
such a laugh to me, they wouldn't last a fortnight.
